Fresh storm hits Mnangagwa's Zanu-PF

Zanu-PF's notorious succession demons have resurfaced, with the party's senior officials locking horns over who should take over President Emmerson Mnangagwa - a few months after the 76-year old strongman won a hotly-disrupted five-year mandate to lead the country.

The fresh fissures in the former liberation movement come as Mnangagwa has recently called his restless lieutenants to order.
Meanwhile, barely three months after the 2018 elections, the Zanu-PF Youth league has begun canvassing for the endorsement of President Emmerson Mnangagwa as the ruling party candidate in the 2018 elections while shutting doors on possible challengers within the party.

The endorsement could be a killer hammer to an alleged faction aligned to Vice President Constantino Chiwenga, believed to be pushing for Mnangagwa to run just for one term.

This is despite the fact that Chiwenga was very instrumental in bringing Mnangagwa to power last year during a military takeover which deposed former president Robert Mugabe.
