Zimbabwe: Legislator resigns in protest over Mugabe's ouster”

Ambrose Mutinhiri, who was Mashonaland East provincial affairs minister before the November events, as well as Marondera West MP, tendered his resignation to the Speaker of Parliament Jacob Muzenda on Friday, citing "illegal replacement" of Mugabe with Emmerson Mnangagwa by the ZDF through a "military coup" on November 15, 2017.

It is reported Mutinhiri, together with some G40 allies sent packing when the military seized control of government forcing Mugabe to resign November past year, have since met Mugabe at his Blue Roof private residence to plot a challenge against incumbent President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Ambrose Mutinhiri visited Robert Mugabe at the weekend, fueling speculation that the party has the former president's backing.

Mutinhiri quit Zanu-PF on March 2, in protest against what he called an "unconstitutional takeover of government" by the military.

The new political formation said Mugabe congratulated Mutinhiri and impressed upon him and his new party to be "honest upholders of the legacy of the liberation struggle".

Cde Mutinhiri told President Mugabe that the result of all this is that there's no constitutional order in Zimbabwe today and that the government created by the coup is unlawful and illegitimate at national and worldwide law and that, for these reasons, the NPF is approaching the Constitutional Court in Zimbabwe as well as appropriate regional, continental and global bodies to ensure the return to constitutional order and legitimacy in the country and to facilitate justice for the victims of the military coup who are now helplessly in limbo.

"We did not fight for people to be threatened like what happened, it's sad". "I know they will be harassed and some arrested but empower them mentally to fight for what is right", he said.

A Government source who spoke to state-owned newspaper, The Herald, on condition of anonymity has claimed that former President Robert Mugabe has 21 farms some of which he has been leasing them to white farmers.

There is an issue of farms that they (Mugabes) have ben leasing to whites.
