President Emmerson Mnagagwa of Zimbabwe arrives in Luanda Friday for a 24-hour visit to Angola for discussions with his Angolan counterpart, President João Lourenço, on the political situation in his country.
Mnangagwa, former deputy to Zimbabwean long-time ruler Robert Mugabe, took over the reins late past year after the former resigned amidst pressure from the military and threats of impeachment by parliament. The constitution of the country has been subverted and there has to be a return to constitutionalism and we can not expect the very same people who overthrew the constitution to restore it.
Moyo said the army acted unconstitutionally when it briefly took power from the government in November.
"Every right-thinking Zimbabwean would like to see the restoration of constitutionalism and legitimacy in Zimbabwe", he said.
The commanders involved in the campaign to seize power and ease Mugabe from power, which included then-general Chiwenga, insisted they were targeting criminals around Mugabe.
Mugabe's nephew, Patrick Zhuwao recently claimed during an interview with Voice of America that his uncle was being "ill-treated" by Mnangagwa's government. "They do not want to have free and fair elections let alone credible elections".
"If anyone out there thinks that Zimbabweans are going to embrace the coup and entrench these leaders ... right now the cabinet ... is led by the most feared people in the history of this country".
According to Zimbabwe Independent, a privately owned newspaper, the academics said they had "no knowledge of her proposal, progress reports, thesis examiners and outcome".
