President Emmerson Mnangagwa has fired Deputy minister of Information Energy Mutodi with immediate effect.
Dr Clarence of TV7 live said there might be several reasons behind the firing of Mutodi.
Doctor Energy Mutodi may have been fired following a Twitter post which alleged that Joana Mamaombe and two others where not abducted rather they had travelled to Bindura with their lovers who are miners.
Clarence said Mutodi was fired because Mnangagwa received mounting pressure from people like Jonathan Moyo after they criticised the post.
Moreover he said, the firing of Mutodi by ED Mnangagwa might be a publicity stunt for to draw attention to the tweet by Mutodi.
Mutodi recently clashed with Information Minister Monica Mutsvangwa claiming that she was abusing state-controlled media.
Mutodi further claimed recently that his life was in danger. In a tweet, he said, “Living in fear of the Chris Mutsvangwa-SB Moyo coalition. I hope it won’t resort to wartime tactics. Appealing for prayers.”
Mutsvangwa is a close associate of the president and Sibusiso Moyo is the minister of foreign affairs, who announced on state television in 2017 the military intervention that led to the removal of the late president Robert Mugabe from power.
The fued between the three ministers sparked the sacking of Mutodi.
