Zimbabwean President Goes On Leave

President Emmerson Mnangagwa of Zimbabwe has taken a three-week leave, handing over his duties to his deputy, according to his office.

During his annual holiday, which began on Thursday and will end on February 5, the 79-year-old king will remain in the nation.

In a brief statement, Mnangagwa’s spokesperson George Charamba said, “During this period, Honourable Vice President, General (Retired) (Constantino) Chiwenga is acting president.”

“He will spend the break in the country, mostly at his farm,” Mr Charamba stated on Twitter.

President Mnangagwa took a break a few days after sacking his State Security Minister Owen Ncube, allegedly due to escalating infighting within his ruling Zanu PF party.

Mr Ncube, a close supporter of President Mnangagwa, was accused of instigating intra-party violence in Zanu PF during internal elections in the Midlands region.
