Political analyst Pedzisayi Ruhanya has said Zapu Leader Dumiso Dabengwa is right in claiming that President Robert Mugabe has a secret successor.
He said it appears Dabengwa is correct that Mugabe has a secret successor and is clearing the way.
“Vice President Emmerson) Mnangagwa is therefore gone. However, I would go further and postulate that the secret successor is Sydney Sekeremayi based on his utterances during Mashonaland East PCC that dislodged deputy speaker of Parliament Chinomona on allegations of supporting Mnangagwa,” Ruhanya said.
“Fundamentally, if its not Sekeremayi, based on the restlessness of Mugabe’s family members over the issue, the successor could potentially be from any of the three Mashonaland provinces. (Gideon) Gono is a potential outlier who cant be dismissed but is difficulty to use outliers to make broad generalizations as I do here.”
