Chimhosva said while the two men’s sacrifice to the country is unquestionable, what still remains unanswered is their ability to help President Mugabe take the country forward.
NCA spokesman Madock Chivasa says the president is violating the country’s constitution by trying to replace the fired Vice President Joice Mujuru with two vice presidents.
Mphoko was on the news in 2003 when he almost casued a diplomatic row with Botswana after he was accused of assaulting a reporter for Botswana’s Sunday Tribune.
'The task is onerous and I have to fulfill the aspirations of our people and the expectations of my party.'
The Zimbabwe National Students Union has expressed the same sentiments, adding that this is only a Zanu PF program.
The elevation of Mnangagwa was widely anticipated and is viewed as a way by Mr. Mugabe of readying the ambitious minister to succeed him when he leaves office.
Mphoko served as Zimbabwe’s ambassador to Botswana and Russia before moving to South Africa where his mission ended in 2011.
Mujuru claims that she sought an audience with the president, who appeared to understand what she was talking about only to be surprised by Mr. Mugabe’s public outbursts.
'Some people say that politics is a dirty game. This time in Zanu-PF, it has become dirtier. I have no capacity of doing those things.'
'Mind you I don’t know any other party other than Zanu PF and that’s my party. And I will die in Zanu PF.'
Mrs. Mujuru says she received a letter today advising her that she has been relieved of her duties.
Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition spokesman, Mfundo Mlilo, said the infighting in Zanu-PF is simply a distraction from the government’s key role of policy making and delivering services.
