Avowed supporter of President Emmerson Mnangagwa, businessman and activist Energy Mutodi has warned former president Robert Mugabe that he risks being tried for his many crimes if he tries to take on President Emmerson Mnangagwa using the National Patriotic Front.
Speaking to the Daily News, Mutodi said,
Mugabe has so many skeletons in his cupboard … and can therefore be tried for various crimes, including crimes against humanity.
If he keeps trying to re-launch himself in politics and to fight against President Emmerson Mnangagwa this may end badly for him.
Another senior official claimed that Mugabe was bitter and did not want to leave Mnangagwa in power but warned that he is on a hopeless mission. The official said,
He (Mugabe) is a very bitter man. Contrary to what you have been told that he is open to reconciling with ED, Mugabe and Grace are working tirelessly to derail the new dispensation.
This is why, as strange as it seems, he is even reaching out to elements within the MDC, as well as to some businesspeople, all in the vain hope that his silly plans will work.
But to be honest, and despite enlisting the services of many soldiers of fortune in politics and communications, ari kungovukura zvake sembwa (he is a hopeless mission).
Zanu-PF has warned Mugabe that they will come after him if he tries to destabilise the party through the Ambrose Mutinhiri led National Patriotic Front (NPF). Mnangagwa himself also said that he will act if it is confirmed that Mugabe is behind the NPF.
