ZIMBABWE LATEST: ZANU-PF TO RECALL MUGABE FROM PRESIDENCY

Leaders of Zimbabwe’s ruling ZANU-PF party are meeting on Friday to draft a resolution to dismiss President Robert Mugabe at the weekend, a senior party source said. The source said the leaders will lay the ground for his impeachment on Tuesday if Mugabe refuses to stand down.

“There is no going back. If he becomes stubborn, we will arrange for him to be fired on Sunday. When that is done, it’s impeachment on Tuesday,” said the mole.

Th soon to be 94-year-old President Robert Mugabe, the world’s oldest ruler, is still refusing to step down as Zimbabwe’s President while the Army has been trying to negotiate with him to leave peacefully.

The talks in Harare came after tumultuous days in which soldiers blockaded key roads, took over state TV and put the veteran leader under house arrest.

The Army who took great pains to stress that the take over was “not a coup” but a transition action, wanted to do it peacefully but Mugabe, after being in Power for almost his entire life has refused to budge and has declared that he wants to stay put and see out his tenure.

Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association (ZNLWVA) secretary-general Victor Matemadanda yesterday rallied behind the army and called for President Robert Mugabe’s immediate recall from Zanu PF, describing him as a huge liability to the ruling party.

He told journalists in Harare that the Zanu PF central committee should set up an independent commission to investigate Mugabe for unspecified crimes.

“We urge that Mugabe be recalled from his position as president of Zanu PF. This is not the first time we are doing this. We did this to (the late Zanu founding leader) Ndabaningi Sithole who had lesser crimes. We want to make it clear that Mugabe has committed much worse crimes than Sithole,” he said.

A lawyer who also spoke to My Zimbabwe News said members of the ruling party, Zanu PF, can simply recall him from Presidency, like what South Africa’s ANC did to Thabo Mbeki in 2009 before President Zuma got into office.
“Zimbabwe has 10 provinces, and if any 6 of the 10 provinces within the Zanu PF provincial leaderships recall Mugabe, it becomes a done deal. There won’t any need to negotiate with him,” said the lawyer who spoke on condition of anonymity citing security reasons.

Harare

Unconfirmed reports allege that of the ten provinces the country has, four have reportedly already recalled Mugabe. These are said to be Mashonaland West province, Manicaland Province, Masvingo province as well as Midlands Province, reports claim.

Mugabe has never had much support from the Matabeleland region, hence Bulawayo province, Matabeleland North and Matabeleland South provinces are likely to follow suit, thereby surpassing the 6-province minimum purge requirement for Zanu PF to recall its under-fire leader.

Meanwhile, the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association chairman, Chris Mutsvangwa has called on all Zimbabweans to attend a rally to be held at the Zimbabwe Grounds in Highfield, Harare tomorrow (Saturday)’in solidarity with the Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) which seized control of the country this week.

He said the army has done its part, and now is our turn as civilians to do our part and send a big message to the international community that as Zimbabweans, we are saying Mugabe Must Go! He added that this would prove to the international community that it’s indeed not a coup that is taking place in Zimbabwe, but the majority of the population doesn’t want Mugabe anymore.

“We applaud the ZDF, they are professionals in their conduct, they did their part. Between now and tomorrow we are giving a chilling warning to Mugabe and cabal that it’s done. Tomorrow we will be speaking as Zimbabwe not as various political parties,” said Mutsvangwa.

Mutsvangwa added that no political party regalia is allowed and urged Zimbabweans to exercise discipline.

He attended a university graduation ceremony on the outskirts of Harare. Clad in academic gown and hat, the 93-year-old walked slowly in a procession on a red carpet to a podium as a marching band played. He was applauded as he announced the opening of the ceremony.

His appearance followed an army statement describing “significant progress”, which was broadcast on national television and published by state-run media on Friday morning. The statement appeared to have been aimed at quelling growing concerns that the military takeover could descend swiftly into chaos.

Last month, the self acclaimed Nigerian Snapchat king was forced to return to his  to public Snapchat after Nigerians refused to pay 10k to watch him!

The questionable personality opened a private Snap account, and kept the price for viewers at 10,000, but when apparently, Nigerians refused to fork ut their hard earned cash for such folly,  he dished the private account and reverted back to the public account, in order to to keep his relevance intact.

TEENAGER SELLS VIRGINITY TO ABU DHABI MILLIONAIRE FOR £2M

A 19-year-old model has spoken of a “dream come true” after selling her virginity for more than £2 million to a businessman from Abu Dhabi.

The part-time student from the US claimed the highest bidder narrowly beat a Hollywood Actor from Los Angeles and a politician from Russia.

The teenager, named Giselle, said she decided to auction herself off on the German website Cinderella Escorts so she could pay tuition fees and go travelling.

 “I would never have dreamt that the bid would rise so high and we would have reached 2.5 million euros,” she said. “This is a dream come true.”

The teenager said it was her idea to sell her virginity, and that she approached the agency to make the transaction in order to feel “safer”.

She said she will meet the buyer in Germany and the hotel is booked. The agency has said it will provide security to accompany her to the meeting.

 A spokesperson for the website said: “We organize the hotel, stay close to the hostel as a contact person in case of problems and the girl can cancel the meeting at any time.

“There are some girls who are looking for a buyer for their virginity on their own. It is safer to run this on our platform.”

Cinderella Escorts, run by Jan Zakobielski, 27, caught the attention of the media in 2016 when 18-year-old Russian model Allexandra Khefren sold her virginity for around £2 million.
