It is greatly unfortunate that there was a grave attempt to take Mnangagwa’s life at Gwanda Somhlolo Stadium youth interface rally by food poisoning. Prayers and best wishes go to Mnangagwa for a speedy recovery and a return to work.
The birth and existence of G40 is a strategy to dislodge Emmerson Mnangagwa who up now remains the biggest obstacle for Grace Mugabe’s ascendance to fully take over the reins of ZANU PF. Emmerson Mnangagwa continues to be a target by Grace Mugabe, Mugabe and G40.The strategy is to disseminate and liquidate Mnangagwa and his support base so that he is isolated and left without backers. The cyanide attack in December 2014 that was aimed at Mnangagwa but unfortunately poisoned his office secretary was not an isolated incident but attempt to take out Mnangagwa from the political equation. There have been several incidents of breaks in into Mnangagwa’s offices since 2014 immediately after former Vice President Joyce Mujuru was purged from ZANU PF. All the incidents attracted mediocre police investigative work and no arrests were made in connection with those breaks in. The routine intruders appear to be accessing Mnangagwa’s offices by the roof and through the ceiling an indication that it is the same people reusing the same plan to access the building. The intruders have never been detected even when the premises are physically guarded all night complemented with intruder detection facilities.
The developments of events relating to ZANU PF succession wars have now pitched up. The attacks on Mnangagwa are now brazen and are executed in the open with open knuckles. The perpetrators (G40) are running out of patience. G40 wants to end it all now for Mnangagwa before the December 2017 ZANU PF conference. This is the work of a highly organised group of influential people (G40) with a political interest to plant some engineered evidence to destroy Mnangagwa. The ‘Blue Ocean Strategy Expose’ and presentation by Jonathan Moyo at the recent ZANU PF politburo meeting is part of the range of strategies to break Mnangagwa down. The assumption is that the presentation slide by Jonathan Moyo was previewed by Robert Mugabe for it to be allowed to find its way to that fateful politburo meeting. The vitriol attack of Mnangagwa and his associates by Grace Mugabe at the Chinhoyi youth interface rally was a follow up to the grand strategy to purge Mnangagwa from ZANU PF and out of its succession battles. Energy Mutodi a presumed associate of Mnangagwa got arrested a few days ago for making harmless news posting about the role of the army in the ZANU PF succession matrix. The whole G40 strategy is coming together and it is now visible as its engineers put their strategy in action.
The G40 club is believed to be composed of Robert Mugabe, Grace Mugabe, Jonathan Moyo, Phekelezela Mphoko, Saviour Kasukuwere, Patrick Zhuwao, Ignatious Chombo, Augustine Chihuri and other faceless ones .The suspected food poisoning at the Gwanda rally was meant to be the final nail on the coffin to send Mnangagwa to the gallows. This happened in the absence of Grace Mugabe at the Gwanda youth interface rally so that the incident is not seen as having a connection to her. What a clumsy Mugabe succession plan not seen in this modern generation. Zimbabwe, after Mugabe will not be a democracy with this kind of a succession plan.
The offer by Mnangagwa to voluntarily resign from ZANU PF and Government was declined by Mugabe last week. Although Mugabe and his G40 outfit want Mnangagwa out, they want him out their way to completely decapitated him and leave him at a level where he is not able to pose any further political threat to G40 and their succession plan. The plan by Mugabe and his G40 counterparts is to cause Mnangagwa emotional and physical paralysis; leave him with emotional scars, expose him to embarrassment with a view to gain control over him; to make him feel insecure; expose him to a loss of a sense of self worthy and to make him feel insignificant to compete against Grace Mugabe. This is the direction Mugabe wants his ZANU PF party to go; the direction of self-destruction and imposition of a successor to his party. There will be changes taking place soon in the police; army and the intelligence services to appointment a set of new leaders well-suited to the interests of G40, Mrs Mugabe and Mugabe. The plan for Mugabe for his wife to take over the presidency is shaping up and it appears to be proceeding well.
Zimbabwe has an abundance of treasure in all sorts of forms; not one man can finish them; not even all of us together can. We can share the treasure fairly amongst of all of us using portions equivalent to our merits allowing us to live fulfilling and prosperous lives. We can only succeed in this bide by positive political and social engagements and by observing appropriate and humane rules of engagement.
