Youth Leader Scares Mnangagwa

9

Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa has been warned by the Zanu PF national vice chairperson, Kudzai Chipanga, that if he doesn’t show his full support for President Robert Mugabe and his wife Grace, he will be expelled from the ruling party.

He was speaking at Cooksey Hall in Chinhoyi on Wednesday, and said all those who decide not to show support for the president and his family will find themselves outside the party like former secretary general Edgar Tekere, who was expelled for disregarding the leadership despite being among the founders of the party in 1963.

Chipanga, who is a Member of Parliament, said Zanu PF is bigger than individuals and will not hesitate to expel all those who disrespect the first family like what it did to former spokesperson Rugare Gumbo and others in 2014.

Gumbo, former Vice President Joice Mujuru and several others were expelled from Zanu PF for allegedly attempting to topple President Mugabe.

Chipanga, who was in a combative mood, said the party is tired of individuals like Mnangagwa, who pretend to like President Mugabe, while they are allegedly planning to topple him.

“We have people like Rugare Gumbo who is a war vet but he got lost, in Manicaland we have people like Edgar Tekere one of the founders of the party but they got lost and others like Didymus Mutasa they were in the struggle but they strayed away … We don’t follow individuals but we follow the party ideology if there is one or two war veterans straying from the ideology as youth we are not afraid to question their motives.”

He said Zanu PF activists, who back President Mugabe should also show respect and political support for Mrs. Mugabe and their children.

Chipanga warned party youths not to be used by faction leaders and to desist from denigrating the first family through social media like WhatsApp as it is happening at the moment.

“Put profile pictures of President Robert Mugabe and his wife in your mobile phones ,we don’t want youths with divided allegiance if you like Mugabe do the same to his wife, to his children Bona, Robert Jnr and Chatunga. We don’t want youth who want President Mugabe on one hand and others on the other … Down with such people.”

There is a message circulating on social media asking people if Mrs. Mugabe resembles a true and genuine mother of the nation inspite of her alleged foul language at rallies. Some Zanu PF activists are reportedly responding negatively on some of the threads generated on Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter.

Some of the national youth leaders, who attended the meeting, included youth political commissariat Innocent Hamandishe, secretary for security Tungamirai Mutonhodza and gender secretary Lotious Takarusikirwa.

The youth leadership was meeting provincial members and sons and daughters of war veterans in the province reminding them that there is only one mother of the nation, Mrs. Mugabe. It’s not clear why they decided to do this. – state media

    Young man Kudzai, let me educate you a little bit. One respects those who respect them. Grace Mugabe can be respected if she respects the VP and stops fighting by hook and crook to get into the Presidium. She must focus on being the President’s wife and Women’s League leader ndokwake.What you must know is that the VP in question has been Mugabe’s most trusted leitenant to date not these Mafikizolos and Mugabe himself knows that. They are trying to lure Sekeramai to front their faction while peddling falsehoods that Mnangagwa, Army and War Veterans planned to bomb Gushungo farm and kill Chatunga and you expect the VP to bow to those blatant lies? Kasukuwere is still trying his arbitrary suspensions in defiance of the Politiburo resolutions and without backing of the fabric of the party, what is that? For Mugabe to be still President today who helped quash opposition in 2008? Who helped mute the idea of Nikuv in 2013. Did Mnangagwa not confirm himself that yes indeed Tsvangirai had won by 73% in 2008 but he (Mnangagwa) personally made sure Tsvangirai does not ascend to power? What planning against the President trash are you then talking about? SHUT UP youngman if you do not have any better contribution to make in parliament. People are hungry in your constituency and what is your plan to ensure people do not die of starvation amid this devastating drought, that is the contribution we want to hear from you Kudzai wazvinzwa. Tarisa zera rako usati washamatata muromo kutaura twusina maturo vakuru vanyerere. Unoti vanopenga? One philosophy you must know is “the more you demonise Mnangagwa, the more support you are creating for him indirectly” because of your foolishness. ….. AND TO ZIMEYE: Kudzai is a nontity to ‘scare’ the VP as your headline suggests.
