Grace and Robert Mugabe 'to remain in Zimbabwe' under government deal

Grace and Robert Mugabe 'to remain in Zimbabwe' under government deal

This raised anxiety and tension and Mr Mugabe, rather than playing a unifying role, chose to side with his wife.

He then went on to remind his audience that he had survived an attempted poisoning on August 12 of this year.

Things were clearly getting out of hand.

In a statement sent to newsrooms, the Opposition coalition has said the government must take full responsibility for the deaths of the 18 victims.

He seemed at pains to tell his audience that the threats to his life were real, but he accused no one in particular.

It was self-preservation first.

After his release, he was deported back to Zambia where he completed his Law Degree. Mnangagwa is being sworn in as Zimbabwe's president after Robert Mugabe resigned on Tuesday, ending his 37-year rule.

There were rumours that after Mnangagwa's removal, the military top brass got wind that they would be next on the firing line. The new president himself is under US sanctions over a violent crackdown in the 2008 election.

Starting in 2000, they also led the violent campaign to seize white-owned farm in what Mugabe encouraged as a correction of the British colonial legacy of black people having only small areas of poor-quality land. "I have been very close to the President ever since (liberation war)".

When he spoke in Shona, Mnangagwa's message and tone were aimed towards the party faithful. It was the unknown, the X-factor, that terrified them.

However‚ through Facebook and other social media accounts‚ Bellarmine declared the show would go on.

The war veterans now have their favoured candidate Emmerson Mnangagwa as president, and he was careful to mention them in his inauguration speech on Friday.

In the early days, Mugabe appointed Mnangagwa, a young trainee lawyer, as Zimbabwe's first minister for national security.

Zimbabwe was once the bread basket of Africa, but Mugabe's policies left the economy in ruins.

And he said he was "not oblivious to the many Zimbabweans from across the political and racial divide who have helped make this day".

Despite this, Mr Mugabe had no intention of retiring.

"They realised their error and apologised and I am hoping this new awakening is permanent even under a new leader".

Addressing investor fears around Mr Mugabe's move in recent years to nationalise the country's lucrative resources, particularly in the mining sector, he insisted that "all foreign investment will be safe in Zimbabwe".

Mugabe is past tense. She went on to attack Mr Mnangagwa, accusing him of fanning factionalism and working against her husband. "He's cut from the same cloth [as Mugabe], the cloth that has seen Zimbabwe's economy tumble".
