Succession: Mugabe spokesperson warns Zanu-PF party members

30 January 2016, 07:09

Harare - Zimbabwe's president Robert Mugabe will deal with those in the ruling Zanu-PF party who are engaging in succession battles, his spokesperson George Charamba has said, state media reported on Friday.  

Charamba's utterances were indirectly aimed at a Zanu-PF faction known as Generation 40 (G40), believed to be led by Higher Education Minister Jonathan Moyo.

The G40 is opposed to Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa and is allegedly pushing for Grace Mugabe to succeed her husband.

"The president is not a character who rushes. He will allow you a very long rope. You go about enjoying meaningless headlines and thinking you are on top of the world, it will take just one afternoon.

"So watch it, there are many sinister minds that speak in the name of the president, who are in fact 'sucessionists' and it won't be long before the headlines give you the story," Charamba said.

Listen to the interview below.

Soon after the interview was streamed on the state broadcaster ZiFM , Moyo said Charamba had neglected his duties as a civil servant.

In a series of tweets, Moyo said the ruling party's next presidential congress would be held in 2019. He insinuated that Mnangagwa would not be succeeding Mugabe, 91.
