VP Mnangagwa now Acting President


Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa is now the Acting President, taking over from his counterpart Phelekezela Mphoko who has been acting since President Mugabe left for his annual leave last month.President Mugabe went on leave on December 24, 2015.

Please kindly note that as of today, Monday, 11th January 2016, Honourable Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa is the Acting President of Zimbabwe in the absence of His Excellency the President, Cde R.G.Mugabe, who is on his traditional annual vacation,” read a statement signed by principal director in the Ministry of Information, Media and Broadcasting Services, Mr Regis Chikowore.

This flies in the face of concoctions by the privately owned Daily News which today claimed that President Mugabe had “snubbed and humiliated” VP Mnangagwa by appointing VP Mphoko to act on his behalf for the second consecutive time.
