ACTING President Constantino Chiwenga was weekend charmed by a group of children who chanted the slogan “ED Pfee” when the country’s number 2 visited President Emmerson Mnangagwa at his Kwekwe farm.
Chiwenga Sunday visited Mnangagwa, who is on his leave, at the latter’s Pricabe Farm in Sherwood, Kwekwe where the two spent a leisurely afternoon together.
The two also had occasion to visit parts of the soya and maize producing farm while travelling in the same vehicle.
But as they drove past a nearby compound, a group of children on the roadside chanted “ED Pfee”, a slogan first used during the 2018 election campaign period by Mnangagwa supporters who were affirming their resolve to thrust the Zanu PF leader on the job of being national President.
“We were coming from the dam on our last lap of the tour of the farm when the children started chanting the slogan,” Mnangagwa later told state media weekend.
“Acting President Chiwenga then asked the driver to stop and the two greeted the kids and gave them some goodies.”
VP Chiwenga is seen as having his own Presidential ambitions and, according to his estranged wife, Marry, he has been taking stress management drugs on finding his wishes to becoming national leader were fast diminishing.
Mnangagwa has not hidden his interest to remain leader beyond 2023 and has moved to try and patch the country’s constitution in what is set to give him more stranglehold on the country’s most coveted job.
