Who will replace former vice president Kembo Mohadi who resigned Monday?
This is what they are saying on social media
“Those touted to replace disgraced Vice President Mohadi who resigned over a sex scandal are ZANUPF chairperson Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri & outsider Dr Thokozani Khupe. Thoughts,” @dewamavhinga.
@daddyhope “The dark horse to replace Mohadi is General Valerio Sibanda who was a commander in ZIPRA, the ZAPU military wing during the war. This might be an opportunity to bring him into politics. General Sibanda is the current commander of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces and had clout.”
“If Mnangagwa chooses to use the gender card as Mugabe did when he appointed Joice Mujuru in 2004; He could appoint Sithembiso Nyoni who is the most senior serving female ZAPU cadre in cabinet and from Matebeleland. Gender has been used to block serious competitors in ZANUPF”
@WalpeAcademy WALPE welcomes the resignation of Mr Mohadi as it signifies the need to hold the office of the VP to the highest moral standards. We call on the Govt to investigate the cases & bring the former VP to account for his misdeeds.
@AMakuyana “Vice President Kembo Mohadi has resigned. Meet your likely new Incoming VP Obert Mpofu ! Zvinhu zveZanupf hapana chokufarira nokuti hapana chako neni. Like I said before: these are Zanupf fights, it doesn’t change anything.”
@TembaMliswa “So who will Mohadi’s successor be? The position should be filled by someone from ZIPRA, not someone who was ZIPRA then moved to ZANLA. This is where ZIPRA commanders must sit down and choose their own. In the past they’ve allowed a leader to be chosen for them on their behalf”
@TendayiZinyama “If obedient son replaces Mohadi then with my history with him ma1 and makwikwi. I have rubbed shoulders with him in an awkward way in these streets.
“What are Sithembiso Gile Gladys Nyoni’s prospects of being easily controlled and outshined by Chiwenga?. If the prospects are high then consider her a contender to replace Mohadi
@BantuPower “Is there any bookies in Zimbabwe? Wonder what the odds would be for the next Vice President replacing just retired Mohadi? Is it based on seniority in former Zapu or another criteria? Do the former Zapu in Zanu have any say? Please educate me someone
