There were reports that Dabengwa was planning to rejoin Zanu PF and become President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s deputy.
Zapu deputy spokesperson, Iphithule Maphosa yesterday told Southern Eye that Dabengwa had not been approached with such an offer and that he did not intend to rejoin Zanu PF.
“ How can he be considering or considered being VP in a party he is not a member? He is a member of Zapu, he belongs to Zapu structures, where he is president already. According to internal processes of the party, he has no intentions of leaving Zapu for anything except retirement,” said Maphosa.
“Probably the rumour mill is basing their story out of this world imagination on the Unity Accord of 1987-2008. We need to remember that no champagne was popped when the 1987 Unity Accord was signed.
“Let us all remember that the post-1987 Zanu PF was a result of a genocide on Zapu members and supporters as Mugabe’s unbridled hunger for unopposed power drove him into killing over 20 000 defenceless civilians in Matabeleland and Midlands provinces during ‘a moment of madness’ in his push for a one-party State,” he said.Post published in: Featured
