President Emmerson Mnangagwa is poised to name Zimbabwe Defence Forces commander General Phillip Valerio Sibanda as his second vice president, former minister Jonathan Moyo claimed on Thursday.

Mnangagwa, facing a challenge from his current deputy Constantino Chiwenga ahead of a congress in December, is reportedly planning to retire Sibanda from the military and name him as successor to Kembo Mohadi who resigned in shame in March last year following a sex scandal.

Moyo, now living in exile in Kenya following a 2017 military coup that ousted the late former president Robert Mugabe, also claimed that Air Marshal Elson Moyo, the Air Force of Zimbabwe commander, would succeed Sibanda.
