WikiLeaks exposes Sikhanyiso Ndlovu

The Herald Online "ZANU-PF secretary for education in the Politburo and former deputy national political commissar Cde Sikhanyiso Ndlovu told the US political section chief Matt Harrington in 2002 that senior party members were quietly discussing President Mugabe's exit.
According to WikiLeaks cables released last week, Cde Ndlovu told the Americans that Politburo members were considering their future after President Mugabe had stepped down.
"In an April 24 (2002) conversation with political section chief, Zanu-PF deputy political commissar Sikhanyiso Ndlovu said Politburo members are, for the first time, quietly discussing ways to ease President Mugabe out, but few are willing to confront the Zimbabwean President directly. "
