Mnangagwa flees into exile

HARARE - Former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa has fled into self-imposed exile — vowing to come back and dislodge President Robert Mugabe from power, and also angrily accusing the long-ruling Zimbabwean leader of destroying and running the country like his private property.

Mnangagwa, who was fired from his government post on Monday — confirmed in a scathing statement that he had gone into exile.

Sources told the Daily News last night that the former VP had fled the country on Tuesday night, after an earlier attempt to sneak into neighbouring Mozambique via Forbes Boarder Post was foiled by authorities earlier that day.

these guys are so predictable! 4 days ago he was chanting pamberi namugabe, now he is issuing a 'scathing statement'?! scathing to who? is this not the proverbial case of sour grapes that would be expected from any reasonable fired man? why wait to be humiliated & getting fired until you start issuing scathing statements. its this attitude that makes jona hate this guy. it this same attitude that made rhobhati fire him because ed doesnt think!

We are in support of him and the end is nigh for the Robbers and Muggers.

This is not the end of the Croc...more to follow.......we are under waters for the time being.....Zimbabwe will prosper under the Croc...the Blue Ocean doc has a lot to offer.

Let Emmerson (Croc) remove the Robbers and Muggers. Forget about the past, what we need is that change. What the Croc did is now history and what we need is him to remove the Robbers and Muggers. He knows how and l really don't know why dictators never learn lessons from the past. What happened to Mao, Pinochet and others. They used their side cheeks to usurp power but they could not win the masses. Let the crocodile remove Robert and this time, its going to happen. Those attacking the Croc are useless faggots and minions with no focus at all. Let the war start now and watch this space......ED will kick the Robbers and Muggers out and its soon and very this space. What you want is change and the change is now coming. Did you watch what Morgan said on SABC yesterday. ZANU PF is gone come next year but the Robbers and Muggers are out before December 2017. Icho charira kupi muZimbabwe.....remember that slogan.....The kick out is soon and in the next few weeks. The Robbers and Muggers own Gushungo Dairy only not Zimbabwe. Its coming in the next few weeks and catch a plane to Singapore now before its too late. Very soon, you will be going for your medical check up and you will see whether you will return back. The country will be in the hands of the rightful owners........Bye bye the Robbers and Muggers.

ndikuona kunge charirira mugotsi ma ed! nothing is going to happen to rhobhati, in fact he is the one who is changing his party as he wish and there is no one bold enough to put up a challenge. I dont see the army challenging as previously suggested because they also want to enjoy their loot in peace! that is why they pander to every of rhobhati's whim! did anyone see how joji wnt into hibbernation afta chinhoi? did anyone see ow the kaukondes, the didmasi et al went into poverty after being shellacked? I still await the day of the one with the balls to dare rhobhati & mhoms; i bet no one will dare! of cause wanongoukura afta wadzingwa but hapana zvawanoita!
