Zimbabwe Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko hit out fears of being thrown to jail in Zimbabwe and is seeking refuge in Zambia, Kenya or Mozambique. He said that he has fears of being arrested when he returns home in Zimbabwe.


Former President Robert Mugabe immediate VICE-President Phelekezela Mphoko, who was in Japan when the military took control of the levers of power on Tuesday last week, is reportedly making plans to seek refuge in either Zambia or Mozambique as he fears arrest if he returns home.


“He was supposed to be back in Zimbabwe by Friday, from Tokyo, Japan. But through the OPC, he has requested that his tickets be changed so that he lands either in Zambia or Mozambique. We know he fears arrest because he is wanted for obstruction of justice and corruption,” the source said.


“I don’t know how she thought I could help her, but a minister who had Mnangagwa’s ear before he was fired asking me to talk to shefu (Mnangagwa) so that she can’t be arrested, how does that work? In any event, anyone with a crime should face the music,” he said.


“He asked me to tell Mnangagwa that he was sorry for allowing himself to be used by the G40 cabal and because he was a young na├»ve politician, he fell for the trap,” the source said.



The Vice president who is still in Japan is worried for his life and life of his family when the former sacked vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa will be sworn in next Friday. "He has been engaging with Diplomats across Africa so that he may be allowed to stay in those countries. " sources said.
