Although Roman Catholic priest father Fidelis Mukonori was the mediator between the army and the Mugabe family during the power negotiations, Mugabe revealed that he sent former Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Governor Gideon Gono on the task to convince VP Chiwenga.

Mugabe fired Mnangagwa as first vice president in 2017, a move many perceived as an attempt to position his wife Grace to succeed him after almost four decades of iron-fist rule.

Mnangagwa visited Mugabe's palatial home, known as Blue Roof, in the capital yesterday to pay his respects.

Mnangagwa himself is under pressure after promising to attract investment and create jobs in a post-Mugabe era, with little success.
