Succession 'tears Mugabe's Zanu-PF apart'

18 November 2013, 14:48

Cape Town – Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe is reportedly struggling to contain “serious struggles” currently rocking his Zanu-PF party amid chaotic provincial elections. 

The Standard said on Sunday that there were reports of intensifying fights within the party as different factions positioned themselves for the eventual succession of the 89-year-old Mugabe.

A Daily News report said the veteran leader last week met with senior party officials in a bid to resolve the fall-out between the factions battling to succeed him.

One faction is said to be linked to Vice-President Joice Mujuru and another one reportedly loyal to Justice Minister, Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Mugabe’s succession has remained a hot issue with reports in the past indicating Vice President Joice Mujuru was highly tipped to succeed him in the event of his death or when he eventually retires.
