9:07 pm
mentioned very. consumers there he had said that he had spoken to a robert mugabe and that mugabe is at home and is safe but of course all eyes now are on the man of the moment and that seems to be amiss and no longer. exactly we know that he's out of the country is a bar winds are now wondering waiting watching is he coming back when these economies are coming back when he does come back way he comes back what role is he going to play we know a sudden zimbabweans who supported him saw him as the heir apparent the one who took over from closer mcgarvey one day in the rulings are a party in terms of hierarchy he is the most senior member and he has a lot of support being a former war veteran so all eyes are on him a son with a lot of zimbabweans are waiting to see what happens next when he left he told about was he would return soon to lead them and even a wait and see what he meant when he said that well thank you so much carmen tasa
9:08 pm
bringing us all the latest from harare bernard smith now looks at the political background that's led to this intervention. the stakes are just got higher in the battle for who will succeed zimbabwe's ninety three year old president last week robert mccarthy fired his deputy as he spoke his politically ambitious wife grace was by his side. president mccarthy said vice president. had started consulting witch doctors to find out when i was going to die the news was delivered to a crowd of supporters from the youth wing of the ruling party zanu p.f. youth wing is loyal to mrs mcgarvie she's the most prominent face of a faction called g forty. with a man pushed aside was honing his political skills when grace mccarthy was still in high school. is nicknamed the crocodile his ability to survive he's closely aligned
9:09 pm
with the military and a veteran of the struggle against british rule that counts for a lot in zimbabwe grace mcgovern was probably learning very quickly but not fast enough you know she would lose her temper and she would be screaming at these people this goes back to twenty fourteen when joyce majeure who was vice president then was dumped and emerson and god were the guy who was dumped but is now back. was was was with that you know with grace so he's a very very fluid shifting fraction of fights going on the military's intervention comes a zimbabwe faces another economic crisis people sleep outside banks because there's a chronic shortage of currency they want to be first in line for restricted access to their money and employment is estimated to between sixty and ninety percent this is created and an economic collapse because the last time that mugabe was really under threat was that towards the end of the one nine hundred ninety s.
9:10 pm
and then the so-called war veterans pushed him into a corner and he said well i need your support go and get twenty percent of the land and i'll go for that and you know that created an economic crisis. as robert mugabe has aged the struggle for his successor has intensified but all the while everyone has been careful to publicly show deference to a president who is held in high regard by most of. the forty faction does not command the same respect now that the army has stepped in. i have gambled and lost. al-jazeera. i can now speak to. an independent zimbabwean politician who is a former member of the wings on a p.f. party joins us live via skype from the capital harare thank you very much for taking the time to speak to us first of all how would you describe the situation in the country right now. very bad news.
9:11 pm
for those very good news because this is a timely. intervention by the military and it's quite as a member of parliament to want to a section of the constitution clearly talks about the role of the military in terms of being the ones to protect the national security of the country and the interests of the country and the territorial integrity there with which to do what they're doing because there was no stability in the country as a result of the first lady. from the president the people elected as a president not great. and so i can i ask you does that mean you think that this is a temporary intervention by the military and that they will essentially hand power . there is absolutely nothing like a say the thing military to restore order in the ruling party you've got to understand these drugs on the pier it's born out of the liberation struggle the
9:12 pm
founding principles of the struggle i imperative as about wins some of the commanders in the army will commanders in the liberation struggle you've got the war veterans as well so they're all as been part of zanu p.f. we ever thought they were not part of zanu p.f. was certainly naive because that the ones who brought about the liberation struggle and are the ones who led the free don't we have today so how can you do force them from zanu p.f. they have a right to the new p.f. they remain the trustees of sun if we have and they have a right to intervene once they believe that the revolutionary party is being hijacked has been through so many the aspect of corruption it's critical just for our own information ministers jumbos house which was invaded and he was arrested he had ten million u.s. dollars cash on you and then he said can i ask you can i ask you and listen i want back in the country now where there is in the country are not the mistake that
9:13 pm
president mugabe did was to fire one of his loyalist the last men standing in zanu p.f. who defended him who took all the flak for him and suddenly because it was due elevate his wife to being president then to being president after twenty eight he then decided to discard the lawyer. so it is it is it is it your anticipation then that when i got go i will essentially take over now when he is back. there is absolutely no debate. what is popular and the way grayson got the went about attacking he gained more supporters became more sympathizers and he controlled nine out of the ten provinces in zimbabwe as a result he was seen as the third that is the reason why the president and i all i put one point to you and i understand what you're saying and you mentioned the the problems around grace of god but actually many people might say that emerson when i
9:14 pm
got one because he is very much part of the political establishment that has been built by president robert mugabe he too stands accused of taking part in a crackdown on political rivals the man at the top might be about to change but that doesn't guarantee that it will result in a better future for the people that. he is a lawyer by profession is a right to uphold the rule of law he's a business person he's somebody who know him very well he's very accommodating at the same time the trouble us you cannot have this is a ruse having their monopoly of the president's use from the qur'an and i'm glad to say that the. thing military the defense forces have gone beyond tribalism cost us is he sees that zimbabwe is safer you know democratic process even within zanu p.f. and extraordinary congress most choose who ever that believe must lead and he knew
9:15 pm
very well that he was supposed to be to be in two zero zero four but when the king of market valley then used the gender card and allowed to come in yet not go get one the election to twenty fourteen you kicked out and brought you know it's time to straighten he is quick to expel. people but you knowledge ribbon this and that is well thank you thank you we appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with us and to give us a sense of how things are playing out there in the capital harare temba melissa an independent zimbabwean politician thank you all developments in harare a being watched closely by the large number of zimbabweans in south africa tanya page has reaction from that. johannesburg is the bustling economic hub of south africa and that's why it's such a magnet for so many zimbabweans who come here to work the people arriving into the
9:16 pm
country this is one of their first stops this is the bus station in joburg we've been talking to people here many of whom think what's happening in harare at the moment is a positive this is russia now in zimbabwe. because since the army took power. and now the president is not. just because he's. trying to serve used to enforce a but i can feed my family i want to change that way so that we. do the crimes that we have tried to be employed by but if. we. do it because our country we don't enjoy our country anyway some of the people here don't want to talk on camera they're a bit scared because they are about a hundred times involved with but other people feel that they're comfortable being critical we must. not lose them so that the people of zimbabwe
9:17 pm
