Tinashe Sambiri|Former Movement for Democratic Change Change Change official Eddie Cross shocked all and sundry after penning Zanu PF leader Emmerson Mnangagwa’s biography.

Prominent academics have described the biography as a collection of lies.

The book, launched on Thursday, attempts to portray Mnangagwa as a political saint.

Professor of History, Sabelo Ndlovu-Gatsheni has described the book as a “a glut of hagiographies masquerading as biographies.”

University of Oxford professor Miles Tendi argued:

Of historical falsehoods and silences:

  1. ED was not a member of the Crocodile Gang.
  2. Silence on the 1980’s Gukurahundi.
  3. Silence on the DRC War.
  4. Silence on the death of Solomon Mujuru.
  5. The 2017 military coup is referred to as a “military assisted transition”.

MDC Alliance vice president Hon Tendai Biti said:
“It’s hard to measure which is the bigger fool Eddie Cross or Lovemore Maduku.”
