Is Zimbabwe's President Facing Internal Party Rebellion?

Following President Emmerson Mnangagwa's call for an early election, amid suggestions that he hoped to capitalise on opposition disarray, reports have indicated that he could face internal revolt within his own Zanu-PF party, with many of the ruling party legislators reportedly calling for elections to be postponed by at least three years. This will be the first time since independence the southern African country will conduct a poll that does not involve former president Robert Mugabe.
