Mugabe is too old to reshuffle anything. He now forgets his own name and he wants to fool us that he can run a gvt shame on those doing it pretending to be Mugabe.

The story here is too big to miss. This is an attempt to shut down the ongoing investigation into the MMCZ $600K payment to a Nikuv related company. Please dig deeper and we'll find out how the 2013 election was rigged. Don't get distracted Zimbabwe, Mugabe is as corrupt as they come. He professed ignorance on the $15 billion dollars. He knows what happened, dementia just make him speak on it, akanganwa kuti vakaba mari vese.
