Chiwenga Hails ED Insist He Deserve Another 5 Years Incharge

Vice President Constantino Chiwenga has hailed President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s endorsement as the Zanu PF Presidential candidate in the upcoming 2023 general elections, insisting he needs another 5 years to foster what the Health Minister described as “the future we envision.”

Chiwenga said this during the ongoing ruling party’s national congress in Harare today.

He added that various developmental projects that Mnangagwa undertook will automatically increase the party’s confidence in winning presidential elections next elections.

“The miraculous transformation brought about by the President will guarantee us to win resoundingly in the 2023 elections.

“Let us give him another 5 years. We wish many more years for our leader, and that God grants him more wisdom. His works have surpassed our expectations,” he said.

He said though the congress was supposed to be an elective one, the people have already endorsed Mnangagwa.

“While this congress was supposed to be an Elective Congress, the Party through it’s structures has already clearly and thunderously endorsed Mnangagwa as the sole candidate for the ruling party in the coming elections.

“People have spoken and let their will be obeyed, so that the President can take us to the future we envision. He is the only leader we know. He deserves another opportunity to lead us, he has everything needed to lead us.”

Meanwhile, Chiwenga was thought to be plotting Mnangagwa’s downfall at the congress as factionalism took center stage.

The rumour mill had been grinding that Mnangagwa entered into a pact with Chiwenga, in which he was to serve one term and hand over power to the former army general.

Chiwenga put his neck on the block when he led a military coup that toppled late former Zimbabwean strongman Robert Mugabe in 2017.

He then invited Mnangagwa, who had fled the country as a civilian face, to come back and take the throne.
