Zimbabwe’s Ousted Vice President Flees, Citing Death Threats

By Godfrey Marawanyika(Bloomberg) —

Emmerson Mnangagwa, who was ousted as Zimbabwe’s vice president on Monday, said he has fled the country because of “incessant threats on my person, life and family.”“I am now out the country and safe,” he said in a statement on Wednesday.

Mnangagwa said he has never planned to harm President Robert Mugabe, the 93-year-old who has ruled Zimbabwe since 1980. Mugabe and his wife Grace have taken over the ruling Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front party for their own gain, he said.
