THE notorious Military Intelligence Department is behind reports of a looming coup in Zimbabwe, former Cabinet Minister and President of the People’s Party Dr Walter Mzembi said.
In a seemingly revelation that outed Prof Jonathan Moyo, former Toursim Minister Walter Mzembi was responding to reports that the military has instructed President Emmerson Mnangagwa to leave power.
Prof Moyo has been at the forefront of tweeting on military involvement in the alleged attempt oust Mnangagwa.
“Stories about Mnangagwa resigning, Chiwenga taking over or another coup in the making, are cooked by the MID as mental games to keep a nation hopeful about change, should be dismissed with contempt and seen as part of continuing mental slavery of a people,” Mzembi said.

Mnangagwa to resign, Chiwenga to finish his term
According to high level military and diplomatic sources, the country’s security chiefs under the auspices of the Joint Operations Command (JOC), recently agreed to elevate their former boss Chiwenga to the presidency.. @ZimEye
His statements come a few days after Professor Jonathan Moyo said the army had given Mnangagwa an offer to leave the office.
Moyo claimed Mnangagwa wants at least US$10 million, immunity from prosecution and a “presidential status that includes a modest motorcade.”
“Mnangagwa has been warm to such a deal, since his Kwekwe chat with Chiwenga but his cronies and cartelists (sic) are not happy with it. Already, the likes of Kuda Tagwirei have become regular if not daily visitors at State House with whispers that they are assessing possible arrangements and budgets for Glens and Biddulphs removal options, should an emergency arise for Mnangagwa and family to quickly exit State House in a negotiated departure,” Moyo claimed in the interview.
