Zimbabwe: Mnangagwa's Security Breached; Heads Roll

President Emmerson Mnangagwa's security was breached during a recent Zanu PF youth interface rally in Gweru after a losing candidate tried to grab his hand while he was on stage.

The incident that was caught on video, which has since gone viral, has landed three members of Mnangagwa's close security unit in trouble, sources revealed.
According to senior government officials, a daring losing Zanu PF councillor from Masvingo, identified as Moses Mavusa, attempted to get a picture with the president after sneaking through barricades to reach the main stage at an open space in Gweru.

Sources said the incident left three officials including one Makuyana, the president's aide-de-camp (ADC), and the acting head of close security Charles Mupanduki in trouble.

Questions are being raised on how the ADC allowed the "overzealous Mavusa " to get close to the president without alerting fellow details.

"Imagine if that guy was armed with anything, he could have injured the president and what would they have said?

"So the issue is about failing to command their troops to be vigilant," another security source said.

Mavusa lost the Zanu PF primary polls to represent Ward 9 to businessman Takachida Mudekunye.

He was arrested after he went to the podium where Mnangagwa was and attempted to greet him while his other hand was signalling to a colleague who was on the ground to take a picture.
Mnangagwa had to push him away and the act was recorded on video which has gone viral on social media.

In December last year, an armed fake state security agent allegedly breached Mnangagwa's close security on two occasions with a fake Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) security clearance at state functions.
