Mutinhiri seen fronting Mugabe return to politics

By Staff Reporter

OUSTED President Robert Mugabe could be well on his way to making a return to national politics, albeit using an old ally as a proxy.

Zanu PF Marondera East MP Ambrose Mutinhiri (pictured) last week made a shock announcement he was resigning as MP for the area through a strongly worded statement he will not continue associating with a “coup” government.

His exit has given rise to strong suspicions he could soon resurface as leader of exiled former cabinet minister Jonathan Moyo’s envisaged New Patriotic Front (NPF) soon to be launched in time for elections expected July this year.

It is reported Mutinhiri, together with some G40 allies sent packing when the military seized control of government forcing Mugabe to resign November last year, have since met Mugabe at his Blue Roof private residence to plot a challenge against incumbent President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

After keeping a curious silence since his ouster, Mugabe has, on two separate occasions given his biggest hints he could try to mount some form of challenge against Mnangagwa’s rule.

First, he met his former deputy and now People’s Rainbow Coalition leader Joice Mujuru at the Blue Roof.

He later poured out against his removal from office, remonstrating with ex-military commander and now Vice President Constantino Chiwenga for allegedly taking sides with his (Mugabe) the deputy Mnangagwa in the Zanu PF factional wars.

“Because we had a misunderstanding with one of my vice-presidents, Emmerson, the army with Chiwenga decided to take out tanks into the streets. This is not what we fought for,” he charged during a private party to celebrate his 94th birthday.

“We did not fight for people to be threatened like what happened, it’s sad.”

Observers said his outspokenness and his apparent refusal to accept Mnangagwa’s overtures were signs he was hurting and was determined to find an appropriate payback for his former ally.
