A FORMER Zanu-PF legislator has called for a "counter-coup" against President Emmerson Mnangagwa in the forthcoming crunch July 30 ballot, dismissing the ruling party leader and candidate as unpopular and cruel.

According to, ousted Kwekwe central MP Masango 'Blackman' Matambanadzo told a weekend rally of the opposition National Patriotic Front (NPF) that Mnangagwa was not even wanted in his own home town.

Mnangagwa assumed power last November following a military revolt which forced then president Robert Mugabe to resign.

"This is a coup government which got into power by using unconstitutional means," Matambanadzo told a weekend rally of the opposition party.

"I therefore, urge you to institute a counter coup on this government by voting for Nelson Chamisa in the coming harmonized elections.

"We have to vote this liar out on July 30. He is cruel and the people of Kwekwe know that and that that has been the reason why they voted for an opposition candidate, Blessing Chebundo," said Matambanadzo.
