The suggestion of Emmerson Mnangagwa being the ceremonial President of Zimbabwe comes from the fact that he is quite frankly a "made man" courtesy of General Chiwenga and the rest of the Zimbabwe Military Intelligence.

What do you really mean by saying Emmerson Mnangagwa is a made man?

A made man is a person who is fully supported and endorsed by the establishment. In this case the establishment is the Zimbabwe National Army and not the people of Zimbabwe.

Does that mean Emmerson Mnangagwa is more so held hostage at the mercy of General Chiwenga?

I wouldn't use the word hostage but I would say the Generals have more power than Emmerson Mnangagwa himself. Unless Emmerson Mnangagwa turns around to crash them.

For Emmerson Mnangagwa to turn against the army Generals in future wouldn't that be the same mistake Robert Mugabe made?

Yes, but history repeats itself and those who don't learn from history are doomed to fall into the same entrapment.
