Mugabe Realised He Made a Mistake On Chamisa - Mnangagwa

Although former president Robert Mugabe had backed the main opposition candidate against his own party in a surprise intervention on the eve of the historic  election on July 30th, he sent his daughter, Bona to represent him at Mnangagwa's inauguration. "Even our former president Robert Mugabe, who had earlier said he no longer supported Zanu-PF and was supporting Nelson Chamisa also sent a letter to congratulate me," said Mnangagwa as he handed over 90 new vehicles to traditional leaders.
