George Charamba has dismissed reports that there is a faction of ZANU PF that seeks to remove President Emmerson Mnangagwa and replace him with Vice President Constantino Chiwenga before the 2023 elections.
Charamba, who is the Deputy Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet (Presidential Communications), was responding to an article written by NewsDay journalist, Miriam Mangwaya titled, “Plot to oust ED thickens”.
Charamba accused Mangwaya of being an opposition CCC “propagandist”, saying the report is false. He said:
ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW IS WHO MIRIAM MANGWAYA IS, in which case you can easily situate this fake story.
She came into the Newsroom as Triple C’s propaganda intern, once more revealing the unholy alliance between party propaganda office and certified newsrooms claiming rights under our Constitution!!
Except those Triple C interns don’t appear to have learnt much, for all their apprenticed stay!
ZANU PF is set to hold an elective congress in October this year and both the ruling party’s Youth League and Women’s League have endorsed Mnangagwa’s candidature in the 2023 elections.
