The video opens with a cast of Mnangagwa loyalists, including leaders of the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans' Association Chris Mutsvangwa and Victor Matemadanda as well as expelled Mashonaland Central Zanu PF youth leader Godfrey Tsenengamu demanding change in the Zanu PF leadership because "the people that we entrusted with power have failed."
It goes on to highlight a nine-page document called Blue Ocean, which the politburo heard was authored by Mnangagwa and his allies, providing a roadmap to seizing power from Mugabe, beginning in 2015 after the ousting of former vice-president Joice Mujuru, Mnangagwa's long-time rival for the throne.
The video says Mnangagwa is working systematically to undermine Mugabe by capturing party and state institutions. Among the institutions doing Mnangagwa's bidding are the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), Zacc, Zimpapers and the military.
The video states that Mnangagwa is using the NPA for "successionist objectives". It states that the Ministry of Justice has directed the NPA to "disclose information on high-profile cases" to the ministry, including the stage each case has reached.
Letters of official complaint written by NPA officials were presented as evidence. The video also revealed that the NPA employs at least 42 military officers, who are ensuring that the NPA plays to Mnangagwa's tune. The military, the video says, is sponsoring bandits, including those who attempted to bomb the First Family's Gushungo Dairy, to show Police Commissioner General Augustine Chihuri — "seen as an obstacle to Mnangagwa's succession plans" - as incompetent.
Zimpapers "has been taken over and continues to systematically vilify individuals identified as opponents in the Blue Ocean strategy document."
The video states that Mnangagwa and allies engineered protests in Mashonaland Central against political commissar Saviour Kasukuwere. The "premeditated" demonstrations were led by serving soldiers and youths expelled by the party with the aim of removing Kasukuwere, followed by a re-organisation of the party's provincial leadership before triggering an extra-ordinary congress where Mnangagwa would force a change of leadership.
he video says Mnangagwa has "amassed a significant horde of at least 482 co-conspirators that are working from their various party and government positions to advance his bid to unconstitutionally and criminally succeed President Mugabe." The list includes politburo members as well as cabinet ministers.
