Philip Valerio Sibanda – now commander of the ZDF – address a press conference in November 2017 shortly before the military intervened to wrest power from President Robert Mugabe. Now Vice-President, Chiwenga is reported to be leading a charge to oust the beleaguered Mnangagwa and take over as transitional President.

A Zimbabwean news website with a track record of breaking major stories involving the Zimbabwean military claims to have received confirmation from military circles that the country’s security chiefs have finalised terms for Emmerson Mnangagwa to step down as President of Zimbabwe.

Mnangagwa was brought in by the military to assume the presidency following Mugabe’s ouster in a military coup in November 2017 after having been fired as Vice-President by Mugabe a few weeks earlier.

Spotlight Zimbabwe claims that intelligence at hand shows Vice President, Rtd General Constantino Chiwenga, is going to takeover the reins of government from Mnangagwa as a transitional president, at a date and ceremony to be announced and broadcast on national television.

VP Chiwenga is said to have already lined up his incoming cabinet, and is going to retain some of his key allies who include: Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) Commander, General Philip Valerio Sibanda; Lands and Agriculture minister, Rtd Air chief marshal Perence Shiri; Foreign affairs minister, Sibusiso Busi Moyo; Zimbabwe’s Ambassador to Mozambique, Lt. Gen. (Rtd) Douglas Nyikayaramba; Zimbabwe’s Ambassador to Tanzania, Lt. Gen. (Rtd) Anselem Nhamo Sanyatwe, among others.
