Sympathy and Cruelty Follows Mugabe Firing VP Mnangagwa

Zimbabweans have reacted with mixed emotions after President Robert Mugabe fired his deputy and long-time ally Emmerson Mnangagwa. Some social media users were sympathetic to the former intelligence chief, while others were overjoyed as they accused Mnangagwa of taking part in the "prolonged political oppression", and that, just like Mugabe, he is to blame for the economic crisis.
