The stage is set for a bruising turf war between Zanu-PF leader Emmerson Mnangagwa and his ambitious deputy Constantino Chiwenga at the ruling party's annual conference to be held in Esigodini, Matabeleland South province, next month, as their rival camps sharpen daggers ahead of the high-stakes showdown.

Mnangagwa and Chiwenga are locked in a battle to control the party and the state, a year after the two protagonists joined forces to topple former president Robert Mugabe.

In recent years, the Zanu-PF annual conferences became platforms for factional fights among party leaders.

Despite their public posturing meant to paint a picture of unity and harmony, Mnangagwa and Chiwenga have been fighting each other behind the scenes, including through proxies.
