BOB MAY MISS ED INAUGURATION : CHARAMBA

Former President, Robert Mugabe may not attend the inauguration of Emmerson Mnangagwa as the new President of Zimbabwe.

This was revealed by Information secretary, George Charamba who said Mnangagwa yesterday spoke to Mugabe, and assured him and his family of maximum security and welfare. Mugabe and his wife had planned to eliminate Mnangagwa before he fled for his life.

Mugabe said given the hectic events of the past week and a half he needed time to rest. He, however, expressed his good wishes and support for the incoming President.

“The President-elect and outgoing President spoke this afternoon firstly for the President-elect to formally indicate that he is now back in the country and secondly to brief President Mugabe on preparations for tomorrow’s event,” he said.

CHIMENE IN HUMILIATING U TURN

Manicaland Minister, Mandi Chimene, who viciously savaged Emmerson Mnangagwa now says she backs the incoming President.

Chimene is said to be hiding in Mozambique after returning from China.

“President Mugabe has now resigned and this has opened a new page in our Zimbabwean history. I support what has happened and will support the new political dispensation. I will support the new party leadership and I want to assure the new President of my support. I support the person who occupies the chair of the President,” she told the Manica Post.


"I was told that I was fired from the party, but I will remain loyal to the party. I am Zanu-PF to the core. I am happy with President Mugabe’s resignation because I always insisted that I was having two fathers at the helm of the party. Since the elder father is gone, I will now work with the young father. I will always stand for the truth even if it hurts some people,” she said.

ZUMA, KHAMA EXPECTED IN HRE TODAY

Three African leaders have confirmed participation at the inauguration of Emmerson Mnangagwa as the new President of Zimbabwe.

Foreign Affairs secretary Ambassador Joey Bimha yesterday said some countries would be represented at Head of State and/or Government level while others would have high-level representatives.

“We sent the invitations yesterday (Wednesday) and we expect to receive confirmations today. As of now, Presidents Jacob Zuma (South Africa), Edgar Lungu (Zambia), Ian Khama (Botswana) have confirmed they will be coming. Namibia will send their Vice President (Nickey Iyambo) while the Democratic Republic of Congo will send a special representative. Sadc Executive Secretary Dr Stergomena Lawrence Tax has also confirmed she will be coming and the Speaker of Parliament of South Africa (Baleka Mbete) will also be coming,” he said.

 Ambassador Bimha added: “We invited all the Sadc countries and other leaders for the event and the list will obviously grow overnight and we will get to know the other Heads of State or representatives coming.”


Britain’s Africa Minister Rory Stewart arrived yesterday.

I WAS USED BY GRACE : UNDENGE

Letina Undenge, now says she that she was used by the power hungry Grace Mugabe.
“My rise to secretary for women’s league came as a surprise to me as I was told of the appointment when I was called to the party headquarters’ Women’s League offices by Amai Grace Mugabe and Amai Sandi Moyo who was the deputy then.

“I was still deputy secretary for education in the national Women’s League then. I was told that I had been appointed secretary for administration for Women’s League, a full time job.

“They said the top 10 national executives that included Amai Mugabe, Mai Sandi Moyo, Mai Chinomona, the late Mai Mahofa, Mai Msarurwa, Mai Mahoka, Mai Mohadi and Mai Kanengoni had set down as a management committee scouting for talent in terms of academic qualifications to employ in the Women’s League and had unanimously agreed to appoint me their secretary.

“Then I had a Masters’ Degree in Administration from NUST which the other contenders did not have. I was given a task to add value to the Women’s League. Part of my job was planning programmes for the league and doing all administrative work, reporting to Amai Mugabe who was the boss and secretary of the Women’s League. I have an official letter of appointment to this effect.

In short, my rise to that position was based on my academic qualifications. I admit that I was blindly used by my boss.”

“My apologies if the position put me in the limelight because all of us on salutation we had to praise Cde Mugabe and Amai Mugabe, something which I did innocently. My deepest apologies to everyone in the party and I wish them to forgive me and leave (sic) me in the party. Our excitement could have hurt others and in God’s name, I ask for forgiveness and wish to continue with my party Zanu-PF. I was not part of a planning cabal against VP Mnangagwa or the army. I only did secretarial work and praised the leaders as I was taught by my party. I am happy that there is a new dispensation and thanks to the bold stance by the army in restoring legacy and order and promise to be a loyal abiding citizen.”

She added: “I would like to congratulate our incoming President, Cde Mnangagwa and also our Zimbabwe Defence Forces Commander General Constantino Chiwenga for embracing change in Zimbabwe in a peaceful manner. I salute them and respect them and as a Christian, the Bible teaches us to respect those in power because they are put by God.

She was speaking to the Manica Post.

UK MINISTER IN HARARE

Minister for Africa Rory Stewart arrived in Harare on 23 November. He will hold meetings with a range of political leaders from various parties, business representatives, human rights groups, NGOs and civil society. He will also see some of the important development work being carried out here by UK.

Minister for Africa, Rory Stewart said: “This is an absolutely critical moment in Zimbabwe’s history. Zimbabweans suffered for too long as a result of Mugabe’s ruinous rule. The events of the last few days have given people here real hope that Zimbabwe can be set on a different, more democratic and more prosperous path.

What comes next must be driven by Zimbabweans - it must be in line with the Zimbabwean constitution and will be impossible without clear resolve from the incoming government. That is what my visit here is all about.


    Britain wants to be a genuine partner for Zimbabweans as they forge a new future.

INAUGURATION, THEN CABINET TOMORROW

President Mnangagwa will announce his Cabinet tomorrow after inauguration. Let’s all pray for a Transformation Team to ignite the New Era. Nick Mangwana
