In a statement to the media the Office of the President and Cabinet has advised that President Emmerson Mnangagwa will take his annual three-week vacation.
The statement went on to advise that he will not leave the country during the annual leave .
Acting Chief Secretary in the President’s Office Mr George Charamba, said the two VPs will take turns in assuming the position of acting President. “President Mnangagwa will leave Vice President Constantino Chiwenga in charge before Vice President Kembo Mohadi takes over.
“The two deputies will be taking turns to hold office in their boss’ absence.
Indications are that President Mnangagwa will spend the time out at his farm in Sherwood, Kwekwe, as well as his residence in Harare”
Since coming to power two years ago, President Mnangagwa has avoided going abroad for his annual leave, as his predecessor Robert Mugabe would traditionally do.
However, President Mnangagwa has been widely criticized for his numerous travels abroad.
