Will Mnangagwa be an Milosevic or Gorbachev?

Bulawayo 24

24th November 2017

Former Zimbabwean cabinet minister, David Coltart, told a South African radio station, Power 98.7, that Zimbabwe President-designate, Emmerson Mnangagwa’s history shows that he was Robert Mugabe’s point man and that is why ‘we don’t have the champagne out.’

“We place a tiny bit of hope in him. We wait to see whether he will be an Gorbachev or a Milosevic.

“There’s a lot of expectation.

“Words are easy, actions are far more difficult.

“There are mixed messages and there’s an element in ZANU-PF trying to encourage Mnangagwa to go it alone and not include the opposition.
