ED Extinguishes Divisive Opposition Agenda

…as President Announces Retirement in 2028

His Excellency, President Emmerson Mnangagwa, announced yesterday in Mutare that he is serving his last and second term in office in line with the Constitution. He indicated that he would be retiring in 2028, with the Party choosing his successor at Congress to represent ZANU PF in the 2028 Presidential election. Meanwhile, opposition mouthpieces such as NewsHawks, which have been trying to weave fictional factional narratives, have been misinterpreting the President’s clear announcement.

The announcement by President Mnangagwa comes at an opportune moment when opposition forces, reeling from the catastrophic collapse of the CCC, have turned their energies on the victorious and unified ZANU PF by fomenting non-existent factions in the Revolutionary Party. The idea behind this nefarious agenda is to create a scenario where Party members pigeonhole themselves into factions invented by the deceitful opposition media.

This is not the first time that President Mnangagwa has announced he would only serve the mandatory two five-year terms. In an interview with Brick by Brick in April 2024, the President declared he would not seek a third term, reaffirming that ZANU PF is a Constitutional democracy that would not transgress the dictates of the Constitution.

Since ZANU PF is the only game in town after the monumental collapse of the CCC in the aftermath of that party’s chastening defeat, there have been concerted efforts to destabilize the liberation party with the hope of causing its implosion. However, the unified Presidium and the Party have refused to be manipulated by Western proxies. The President’s reiteration that he would abide by the Constitution has scuttled the nefarious and insidious agenda to stoke factionalism in the Party.

Vision 2030 is an aspiration and target set by President Mnangagwa and the Party. It will remain in place even when he vacates office in 2028. Hence, vanenge vachipo in 2030!! Zimbabwe will attain an Upper Middle-Income Economic status by 2030.
