Outgoing Zanu PF Women's League boss, Oppah Muchinguri, is a step away from becoming one of Zimbabwe's two new vice presidents, after it emerged last night that President Robert Mugabe, has resolved to appoint Muchinguri to the powerful position, as he moves to dismiss VP Joice Mujuru, The Telescope News has reported.

An official close to the President's Office said Muchinguri is being rewarded, for being a "whistle-blower" to the first family, after she allegedly warned Mugabe and first lady, Grace, that Mujuru was on the verge of forcing them out of power come Zanu PF's elective congress next week.

It is also coming to light, that Muchinguri reportedly sounded the alarm bells, for the first lady, to watch her back because Mujuru was determined "to humiliate her" and destroy her business interests once Mugabe was gone.

"Although there has been a strong suggestion and call for Edna Madzongwe to fill the post, Muchinguri is now the hot favourite, because the President wants to reward her, for doing a sterling job in giving him intelligence on Mujuru, which had almost been hidden from him," said the senior official, who gave his identity as Mandere.

"However things might take another twist, if say Mugabe decides to step down before congress, Emmerson Mnangagwa might have to make such a decision."

Meanwhile, The faction-riddled Zanu PF on Saturday all but bolstered President Robert Mugabe’s grip on the party after endorsing constitutional amendments bestowing him with powers to handpick his deputies, national chairperson and members of the Chinese-style politburo.

Mugabe, who chaired the tense 10-hour politburo meeting at the party headquarters in the capital, now awaits the ratification of the constitutional amendments by the central committee, Zanu PF’s supreme decision-making


body in between congresses.

The amendments, sources in the party said, were meant to create one centre and source of power, the president, to tame factionalism, amid allegations that Vice-President Joice Mujuru wanted to topple and replace President Mugabe.

Currently, two vice-presidents and the national chairperson are elected at congress.

Mujuru, sources said, was on her way out given the amendments adopted by the politburo.

The Zanu PF second in command has for the past three months watched helplessly as her reported loyalists were booted out across the country, including nine provincial chairpersons, the party’s former information chief Rugare Gumbo, suspended for five years, War Veterans leader Jabulani Sibanda was expelled, while Mutasa reportedly survived by a whisker.

Oppah doesn't have leadership qualities. Kungozviti ndakaenda kuhondo is not enough for one to assume such a senior position. Nyaya yema faction iyi has caused a lot of chaos in Zim to the extent yekusatarisa ma qualities emunhu zvongogumira pakuti he/she is loyal to me. ko angasaratidza kuwa loyal sei iye achiziva kuti ndizvo chete zvinomuita kuti arambe aripedyo nekudya kwemahara
