President Emmerson Mnangagwa Confirms Leading Lacoste Faction

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has publicly admitted that he was the leader of Lacoste, a Zanu PF faction which was fighting the former President Robert Mugabe’s wife Grace in the Zanu PF succession race.

Mnangagwa made this confession in Harare on Friday when he was addressing a Zanu PF congress after the forced resignation of Mugabe by the military last month.

“We should reject tribalism and regionalism and my ascendancy to the Presidency must not be interpreted as the victory of the Team Lacoste faction over the G40 Faction,” said Mnangagwa.

“Or the rise in the fortunes of one region, or tribe or totem. My presidency is about a united Zanu PF, a national party with a national outlook. I am the president of all men, women and youth, the sick and old, I am president of all who are celebrated in the constitution,” he said.
