National People's Party spokesperson Methuseli Moyo has said former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa's presidency is clearly a product of a coup and he has a task to balance issues.

"The Mnangagwa presidency is purely a product of a coup. The Crocodile has a huge task to balance issues. The danger I foresee is that he could be a hostage president if he fails to put the soldiers back to their place: in the barracks. For greater of his last years, Mugabe himself was a hostage of the military," he said.

"The military have kept Mugabe in power since year 2 000 after threatening not to salute Morgan Tsvangirai. It got more pronounced in 2008 when the military ran a violent campaign in favour of Mugabe. The military got rid of Mugabe once he thought they were too much and told them - publicly - to go back to the barracks. Will Mnangagwa be able to push them back to the barracks? Soon, we will have answers."

This come in the wake of Mugabe having resigned after pressure from the military, citizens and Zanu PF.
