Norton legislator, Temba Mliswa, today addressed a press conference in which he alleged that Mnangagwa is now relying on the military for security because he can no longer trust the police and CIO. Mliswa said the CIO and Police, who are under Mnangagwa office, have been infiltrated and compromised.

This is the third video recording in which Mliswa has spoken about the vulnerability of Mnangagwa.
In July, Mliswa was recorded while on a phone call with Kuda Tagwirei discussing the arrest of former minister Fortune Chasi.

PRESS STATEMENT BY DILESH NGUWAYA
Following numerous reports circulated via various platforms and social media, it has become necessary that I take this opportunity to set the record straight regarding the false and malicious allegations levelled against me in the public domain by Honourable Temba P. Mliswa.
It is of great concern that through letters addressed to the Prosecutor General by the MP in question, I have been accused of having paid an accused person, Mr Felix Munyaradzi a visit at Remand Prison whilst in the company of one MrTabani Mpofu, of the Special Anti-Corruption Unit (SACU).
Honourable Temba Mliswa has been on a whirlwind of attacks against my person on several media platforms. He has called me various names including that I am a criminal and that I control state organs. MrMliswa has done this without any shred of evidence to support such unfounded allegations. The following is my position as regards his unlawful denigrations and attacks on my person.
(1) I never visited Mr Munyaradzi, the accused person during the unspecified dates, let alone in the company of the said Mr Tabani Mpofu.
(2) I do not own a “white Toyota vehicle” and a simple search with the Central Vehicle Registry can confirm this fact.
(3) I am not capable of releasing accused persons who are under the lawful custody of the Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services as I am neither a bail court nor a Prison Warden. I cannot possibly promise to do that which I am not capable of.
4) The accused person referred to in the letters is currently on remand facing allegations of fraud involving numerous stands and numerous complaints. In some of the matters, I am a complainant against Mr Felix Munyaradzi. He is party to lawful proceedings instituted in the High Court of Zimbabwe by various parties and cannot possibly deliver/ return properties from behind the walls of a prison as alleged. I never extorted Mr Munyaradzi.
(5) This smear campaign is motivated by malicious intents that are best known to the Member of Parliament as evidenced by the manner in which the “complaint” is directed to media and not the law enforcement agencies, that is the Zimbabwe Republic Police or the Zimbabwe Prison and Correctional Services who are tasked with maintaining the security and integrity of the Prisons in Zimbabwe.
(6) I do not have a criminal conviction. I am not a criminal. As a matter of fact, I am a decorated businessman and cannot possibly allow Mr Mliswa to continue maligning and soiling my good name.
(7) By this statement, I reserve all my legal rights to defend my name against this mudslinging tirade.
The continuedrevelations by Temba Mliswa show the following:
- Mnangagwa is having a difficult time controlling the security cluster.
- There are deep tribal divisions in Mnangagwa’s government.
- The Military is keeping a close watch over Mnangagwa.
- Mnangagwa’s health issues could be worsening.
