Mnangagwa Cuts Off VP Chiwenga's Access to Zimbabwe's Military

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has withdrawn Vice President Constantino Chiwenga's oversight role of the Ministry of Defence and War Veterans. In a stunning political blow to Chiwenga, Mnangagwa reassigned the former Zimbabwe Defence Forces commander to exercise oversight in "procurement and research" instead.
