Days after the military took charge of Zimbabwe and placing the country’s President Robert Mugabe under house arrest, there are reports a transitional government could be put in place moving forward.
The SABCis reporting on its website that Zimbabwe is likely to have a transitional government after the army takeover.
According to the SABC a deal has already been proposed that the sacked former vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa nicknamed ‘The Crocodile’ leads the transitional government.
The transitional government would then be constituted of stakeholders from other political parties which could see the former Vice President, Joyce Mujuru also returning.
Opposition leader, Morgan Tsvangirai is also reported to be the person being proposed to become the country’s Prime Minister in that transitional government.
Local media is also reporting that Mr. Mugabe has been given the chance to negotiate an exit that includes state protection for him and his family.
The priority of the transitional government will be to restore the economy to a better footing as the country struggles to improve living conditions of citizens.
Last week President Mugabe sacked his vice president and long-time ally, Emmerson Mnangagwa sparking recent turn of events in the Southern African country which appears to have brought a closure to the Mugabe era.
Robert Mugabe has been leader of Zimbabwe since 1980 after leading his country to gain independence from the British.
