“He (Mnangagwa) could not have assumed the presidency of the country without the army. It’s the army which assisted him. The army made sure that other organs of state were neutralized … completely neutralized ... I said it was a coup d’etat. Some people have refused to call it a coup d’etat.”
Chamisa told a visiting delegation of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) in Harare led by Advocate Leshele Thoahlane that Mnangagwa’s government is unlikely to implement reforms initiated by SADC in 2013.
