Harare ‑ Relations seem to be thawing between Zimbabwe’s former leader Robert Mugabe and his successor Emmerson Mnangagwa, with the former calling for unity of purpose.
Mugabe on Thursday, said he accepted the election result, adding that the just-ended July 30 election had addressed constitutionality issues since the military coup last November, which catapulted Mnangagwa to power.
“Mnangagwa won. It’s now constitutional,” Mugabe said.
“It was an election and his victory cannot be disputed. We now leave behind us the transgressions of yesterday.”
He was addressing mourners at the funeral of his mother-in-law, Idah Marufu who died on August 31, at the Trauma Centre in Borrowdale, Harare.
