Zimbabwe’s former deputy president Phelekezela Mphoko has reportedly demanded an exit package after being fired from both government and the ruling Zanu-PF in November.
Ncube confirmed the development but was unable to give more details, the report said.
The former vice president was the second deputy appointed in 2014 by Mugabe, along with current president Mnangagwa.
Mugabe’s exit package
Mphoko had flown to Japan on official business the day before the army took over the country in an operation that culminated in Mugabe’s ouster.
He eventually returned home early this month after a brief stay in Botswana.
Mphoko’s demand came a few days after Mnangagwa officially gazetted Mugabe’s exit package.
First class air travel on four foreign trips per year; private houses and a veritable army of aides and domestic staff – these were some of the benefits Mugabe would enjoy.
According to a constitutional expert Professor Lovemore Madhuku, Mphoko was likely going to receive all his benefits.
Madhuku said section 102 of the constitution stated that a person who had ceased to be president or vice president was entitled to a pension equivalent to a sitting president or vice president.
