Mugabe Deepens Purge of Potential Successors

Harare – Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe decried “jostling” for power within his ruling Zanu-PF party on Tuesday as he deepened a purge of potential successors.

“Unprecedented jostling has been going on,” the 90-year-old leader told war veterans, warning “that’s what destroys organisations” as the party met to elect its leaders.

The key elective congress – to be attended by some 12 000 delegates – is expected to endorse the 90-year-old Mugabe as party chief and his wife Grace as women’s league boss.

As if to underscore Grace’s rapid rise to power, conference-goers walked to the venue on a recently paved street called “Dr Grace Mugabe Way”.
