MDC leader, Nelson Chamisa is said to have met the Mugabes in Dubai to hammer out a proposed Cabinet.

Chamisa, who has business links with the Mugabes, appeared to confirm the reports over the weekend while addressing party supporters at Mvurwi Stadium in Mazowe North.

“I laughed when I heard that Mugabe said he will vote for me,” he said. “I cannot refuse a vote. I know that even if you refuse to vote for me, I have one vote from Mugabe.”

The Herald said a proposed Cabinet list has already been drawn. According to the list, Grace would be appointed Vice President. Dr Bhekitemba Mpofu would be the co-Vice President in a Cabinet constituted by former G40 cabals.

Professor Jonathan Moyo, who fled the country last November, is earmarked for the Foreign Affairs portfolio. Mr Zhuwao has been given the Ministry of Water and Environment, with Mrs Eunice Sandi-Moyo, another G40 cabalist, assuming the Ministry of Devolution and Local Government.

Ms Sarah Mahoka was tipped to become Minister of Women and Youth Affairs, while NPF spokesperson Mr Jealousy Mawarire, becomes the Minister of Publicity and Information.

Other portfolios were set aside for members of the Chamisa camp, with Mr Tendai Biti becoming the Minister of Justice.

Mr Chamisa’s spokesperson, Dr Nkululeko Sibanda, yesterday dismissed the claims.

“People are clutching at straws,” he said. “I have seen the list with some people whom we do not even know. The next thing that they will say is that Chamisa met an angel.

“It is nowhere near the truth. The point is that we will accept every vote even from (President) Mnangagwa. We know that Chamisa is going to win this election.”
