President Emmerson Mnangagwa is making moves to fire the Presidential Spokesperson George Charamba an online publication Zimlive has reported.

It is reported that Mnangagwa told his officials allies that Charamba would soon be replaced  with a journalist-turned-lawyer who is loyal to Mnangagwa.

Charamba is viewed as a loyal ally to Vice President Constantino Chiwenga.

In 2017 Charamba, who was at the forefront of Mnangagwa's bid to takeover from the late Robert Mugabe, clashed with Professor Jonathan Moyo warning him that he must stay away from succession battle where he was doomed to fail the party's old guard.

"Minister Jonathan Nathaniel Moyo, the professor: leave those scurrilous and thoughtless 140-letter tweets, all to motivate and orchestrate real research, to build and organise real knowledge, without doubt always your forte, your competence," he said then."Chine vene vacho chinhu ichi [This thing (Mugabe succession) belongs to some people] and you won't be there when great questions of the day are settled mumatare avo (at their fora)," he said then.

Moyo recently accused Charamba of betraying Mugabe.
