Mugabe's Party to Raise U.S.$8 Million for 'Special Congress'

President Robert Mugabe's ruling Zanu-PF party has launched a fundraising drive to raise at least U.S.$8m for its extra-ordinary congress slated for December ahead of the 2018 elections. There is speculation that this could be part of a bigger plot to remove Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa and elevate First Lady Grace Mugabe's role in the party.
