Mnangagwa to visit Namibia on Monday

Mnangagwa to visit Namibia on Monday

He went ahead to condemn the military takeover that ousted Robert Mugabe and ushered in the country's current president, Mnangagwa deputised by former army chief Constantino Chiwenga.

This is the first time that Moyo has appeared in public since the resignation of Mugabe following a military-backed "soft coup" in November.

He continued saying, "it is completely unsustainable for anyone to say Mugabe resigned voluntarily when we know the army took over all institutions of the state and confined him to his residence".

"This is a military government".

In his response to Moyo's claims on the BBC's HardTalk programme that the military had issued a death warrant on him, Charamba said the former cabinet minister was "running away from fears of his own making".

"If you don't intervene when there has been such an outrageous, brazen attack on a constitutional order, you are simply opening the floodgates to conflict", he said.

Government officials could not immediately be reached for comment.




Previously, Mrs Mugabe has defended her academic record, the BBC reported.

Mugabe's nephew, Patrick Zhuwao recently claimed during an interview with Voice of America that his uncle was being "ill-treated" by Mnangagwa's government.

It was his first appearance in the media since he fled the country mid November previous year. There was heavy gunfire for 15 minutes. It had been thought that he had fled to Kenya - where his wife is originally from.

Trade between Namibia and Zimbabwe generated only N$24 million (about US$1.9 million) in 2016, a situation that President Geingob said was unacceptable.

The initiative is meant to legitimize the ongoing political transition in Zimbabawe following the resignation of long-serving former president Robert Mugabe in November, 2017, at the insistence of the ruling Zanu PF party and the subsequent swearing in of Mnagagwa on Nov 24 as interim president.

"I would rather be hated for standing for my principles and believing in the rule of law than be feared that if people don't agree with me I will unleash the tanks".
