Mugabe’s ex-deputy Mphoko fights for pension payment – report

Zimbabwe’s former deputy president Phelekezela Mphoko is still not receiving his pension, four months after government promised to settle it, a report says.

Mphoko – a Grace Mugabe ally – lost his job after the new administration led by President Emmerson Mnangagwatook over following the resignation of ex-president Robert Mugabe in November.

Mphoko was the second deputy appointed in 2014 by Mugabe, along with current president Mnangagwa.

According to AFP, 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.

But instead of returning home at the end of his mission, Mphoko sought sanctuary in Botswana.

Mphoko, however, eventually returned homea few days later and after some time, reportedly demanded an exit package, the state owned Heraldnewspaper reported.
