Controversial whistle blowing website WikiLeaks almost caused a massive
political fallout in the country after releasing leaked US diplomatic cables
revealing that  top leaders of Zanu PF and  MDC-T, were effectively isolated
with dwindling support from their immediate lieutenants.

The explosive WikiLeaks revelations exposed  senior Zanu PF and government
officials who held secret meetings with US diplomats where they allegedly
discussed sensitive succession issues, including demands that Mugabe should
leave office.

The officials exposed include the two Vice-Presidents Joice Mujuru and John
Nkomo, Ministers Emerson Mnangagwa and Saviour Kasukuwere as well as
Tsholotsho North legislator Jonathan Moyo.

The cables also revealed that Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai did not
command the respect of top members of his party, who told US embassy
officials that their leader was out of his depth and did not have the
capacity to lead the party.

The Prime Minister’s close confidants, MDC-T national organising secretary
Nelson Chamisa and deputy Justice Minister, Senator Obert Gutu described him
as an inept and indecisive leader.

Unresolved mystery of Mujuru death

The death of Retired General Solomon Mujuru in a mysterious inferno at his
Beatrice farm in August shocked the nation.  Questions remain unanswered
which include why the liberation war stalwart could not escape through
bedroom windows, and why it took soldiers and police officers guarding the
farm hours to notice that the house was on fire.

Foul play is suspected but up to now police have not released results of
investigations opting to instead go for an inquest. Zhangazha believes
WikiLeaks coupled with Mujuru’s death has complicated the succession debate
and thrown Zanu PF into turmoil.

“In this year, we have seen Zanu PF crumbling, exposed, and behaving like
the true junior partner in the government as by their behaviour in
disrupting Parliament’s work, Copac and many other activities typical of
junior partners.  Under such an environment Zanu PF had no option but to
retain Mugabe in charge,” he said.
