In a statement by Acting Chief Secretary in the President’s Office George Charamba, Mnangagwa will leave Vice President Constantino Chiwenga in charge before Vice President Kembo Mohadi takes over.

Chiwenga, who has now assumed Acting presidency, is reportedly in China for a ‘medical check up’ and there has been no word about his return.

For two years since taking over as president, Mnangagwa has made headlines for spending millions of taxpayers’ dollars globetrotting on chartered flights. NewsDay
