Recently expelled ZANU PF Mashonaland Central official Goodman Tamuona Musariri has said he had a dream of leading Zimbabwe since he was nominated a group leader when he was in Grade 1.
The 40-year-old has vowed to challenge Mnangagwa’s legitimacy in the courts of law, saying his ascendancy through the “unsanctioned” ZANU PF central committee caucus of November 19, 2017, is unlawful, null and void. He said:
“I have always wanted to lead Zimbabwe at least for a term or two since I was elected the group leader at school when I was in Grade 1 in 1987.
“God had told me that I would be President after attaining 40 years together with Zimbabwe and I am going to become the first born-free President of Zimbabwe.”
Musariri claimed to have worked for CBZ, Royal Bank and Legend Asset Management before he joined the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe where he said he worked as head of treasury operations, money market dealer, settlements manager, sinking funds and donor funds administrator and manager ledgers, among other roles.
Musariri is on remand on charges of undermining the authority of the president after he allegedly denounced President Emmerson Mnangagwa and called upon Vice-President Constantino Chiwenga to take over from his boss early this year.
