Former Zanu PF Chivi South legislator, Killer Zivhu, has said that President Mnangagwa was ordained by God to be a leader and is the only head of state and government who can be entrusted with leading the African continent in the event that all states in the continent are placed under a single administration.
Zivhu vowed to fast for Mnangagwa to win 2023 elections so that he leads Zimbabwe until 2028.
Posting on his Twitter handle, Zivhu said, "ED is the only person who can rule Africa kana tikava ne United states of Africa. ED is principled kumuvenga kana kumuda Mwari vakamuropafadza."
His comments come at a time when Mnangagwa’s Government has come under fierce criticism for applying the persecution-by-prosecution strategy on its rivals following the arrests of notably journalist Hopewell Chin’ono and Transform Zimbabwe leader Jacob Ngarivhume.
Zivhu was fired by Zanu PF after the party’s national disciplinary committee recommended his expulsion after he used Twitter to push for a meeting between First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa and MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa’s wife.
Zivhu is a former chairman of an association of cross border traders. He currently owns a company which produces sanitary pads.
