Was Chiwenga fooled by Mutsvangwa?
By Staff Correspondent| It never rains but pours for “big-voco” Chris Mutsvangwa and Vice President Constantino Chiwenga was dragged into his humiliation in Norton today.
Chiwenga flew a whole helicopter for 31 km from Harare to Norton (SEE LIVE SATELLITE MAP) where thousands bunked his meeting and the nation’s Vice President addressed a paltry class-room near crowd at Kingsdale surbub.
There were arguably more government officials at the stage than in the crowd.
The development comes after Mutsvangwa had begged President Emmerson Mnangagwa to assist him so he can pull a small crowd in Norton. Highly placed sources reveal the President knowing Mutsvangwa’s bad reputation in the area refused to accompany him.
Mutsvangwa could have perhaps utilised his boisterous vocabulary to manipulate Chiwenga, the VP, who flew the chopper to Norton, a journey that even former President Robert Mugabe used to use normal vehicles from Harare.
Norton residents were met with surprise to see the Vice President address a few people who could not even fill up a school classroom.
The crowd stands at contrast to Mliswa’s thousands at his function yesterday, Saturday. (SEE VIDEO AT THE BOTTOM OF ARTICLE).
The ZANU PF Chairperson Oppah Muchinguri, also present there, went totally pale seeing the small crowd, the first ever in ZANU PF’s new dispensation history period.

Efforts to get a direct comment from VP Chiwenga were fruitless at the time of publishing.
Meanwhile, a ZANU PF elder in the area said Mutsvangwa will not be voted due to his alleged “well known character”.
