Top UK scholar attacked for predicting a Mnangagwa victory

Top UK scholar attacked for predicting a Mnangagwa victory
Published: 11 July 2018 (468 Views)
A TOP UK professor - Stephen Chan - who predicted victory for Zanu-PF and President Mnangagwa has been attacked by MDC Alliance followers. Professor Chan, who teaches African Political Thought at the SOAS University in London, feels the MDC-T is not positioned for victory on July 30.

"This one is going to be historic simply because of his (Mr Robert Mugabe) absence. But I think that his party and his successor President Mnangagwa will probably win," said Professor Chan.

After the attack, Professor Chan said, "When I say the Zimbabwean opposition is weak, and is therefore likely to lose the forthcoming elections, it is not to say I am pro ZANU-PF. But there is nothing objective in Zim right now. It's a time for Zimbabweans to take sides. But I am not Zimbabwean."
