After Mnangagwa Officially Gazetted Mugabe’s Exit Package, Mugabe’s Former VP Mphoko Reportedly Demands Same

Ncube confirmed the development but was unable to give more details, the report said.


Mphoko lost his job after the new administration led by President Emmerson Mnangagwa took over following the resignation of ex-president Robert Mugabe last month after a 37-year rule.

The former vice president was the second deputy appointed in 2014 by Mugabe, along with current president Mnangagwa.

Mugabe’s exit package

Mphoko had flown to Japan on official business the day before the army took over the country in an operation that culminated in Mugabe’s ouster.

He eventually returned home early this month after a brief stay in Botswana.

Mphoko’s demand came a few days after Mnangagwa officially gazetted Mugabe’s exit package.

First class air travel on four foreign trips per year; private houses and a veritable army of aides and domestic staff – these were some of the benefits Mugabe would enjoy.

According to a constitutional expert Professor Lovemore Madhuku, Mphoko was likely going to receive all his benefits.

Madhuku said section 102 of the constitution stated that a person who had ceased to be president or vice president was entitled to a pension equivalent to a sitting president or vice president.

Mugabe and Mpoko need only receive retribution from the Ancestors and parish in pain as the damage put on Zimbabwean people same as the whites have done to our people. Nothing they will get but the sins of the father their children shall suffer unto the 4th generation. As they have done unto their people. So shall it done unto them and their seeds. The Ancestors have returned and called for them.
