Following the appointment of Grace Mugabe as Vice-President at the expense of ZANU (PF) Stalwart Emmerson Mnangagwa last week, events in Zimbabwe have escalated as the Security Forces have embarked on what they describe as a rationalisation exercise to prevent more Political Purges that will lead to the further deterioration of the Country.
Mugabe sacked Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa last week, amid a row over succession. Mr Mnangagwa had previously been seen as an heir to the president, but First Lady Grace Mugabe is now the clear front-runner.
The rivalry between Mrs Mugabe and Mr Mnangagwa has split Zanu-PF.
