A prominent Harare based clergyman Bishop CB Motondo of Grace Fellowship Ministries Church has warned Zimbabweans to brace for a female President who will takeover when Mnangagwa leaves.
This prophecy was first made public during a Word For My Nation Conference which hosted popular musician Jimmy D the Psalmist. Said Bishop Matondo in a video,
“The fourth President will shock you because she is a woman, a woman will sit on that seat. God is taking this nation to another dimension.”
The prophecy has left political analysts guessing and wondering who is likely to be the female President. Several names have been thrown around for the top post among them Oppah Muchinguri Kashiri who is currently the ZANU PF National Chairperson and Minister of Defence making her the most powerful woman in the country.
She is followed by Mabel Chinomona who has been viewed as a quiet character, who is not a contender to the throne, she is currently President of the Senate.
Monica Mutsvangwa is currently Minister of Information, a war veteran and vocal politician who lives in the shadow of her husband Chris Mutsvangwa. Monica could rise through the ranks as a Chris Mutsvangwa project the same way Joice Mujuru rose through the ranks as a Rex Nhongo project.
Mujuru herself is no longer a factor. The demise of her husband’s influence in Zanu PF and Zimbabwe means limits her potential. Thokozani Khupe makes it to the list as a President of the MDC T, but her numbers are way below presidential standards.
Bishop C B Motondo says he has been receiving calls and visits from political figures who seek to know who this female is and who is likely to take over from Emmerson Mnangagwa.
While rumours suggest that powerful Vice President, Constantino Chiwenga, will be helped by his military buddies and allies to succeed Mnangagwa, sources in government and Zanu PF feel that he might not be Mnangagwa’s prefered successor.
Even the majority of Zanu PF is reportedly fighting hard to prevent military people from taking over the ruling party. This makes the Oppah Muchinguri theory more plausible and more likely.
