    The man considered most likely to replace Robert Mugabe as Zimbabwe’s next president has reportedly spoken out for the first time since the military takeover.

    Emmerson Mnangagwa had been a powerful and loyal member of Mugabe's inner circle - serving as justice minister, speaker of parliament and vice president, before he was fired earlier this month.

    His sacking sparked the current political crisis.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons reports on the man nicknamed the “Crocodile”.
