Mugabe threatens Hre, Byo residents

PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe has threatened to punish urban dwellers, especially those in Harare and Bulawayo for ditching him and his party in favour of MDC-T in the just-ended harmonised elections.

REPORT BY EVERSON MUSHAVA

He said the city dwellers should not come to his government, but go to Morgan Tsvangirai and the MDC-T for service delivery, jobs and all else they may need.

“People from Harare and Bulawayo, to vote for the MDC-T, what do you admire in that party? Now, go and get from the MDC-T what you were promised during the elections,” Mugabe said, describing MDC-T leaders as ignoramuses.

Mugabe, who was last Thursday sworn-in as President for an eighth term, was addressing thousands of people attending the burial of Retired Air Commodore Mike Karakadzai at the National Heroes’ Acre yesterday.

Zanu PF lost all the 12 contested parliamentary seats in Bulawayo and got only six out of the 28 available in Harare. The party won majority seats in all other major cities and the rest of the country — garnering over two-thirds parliamentary majority while Mugabe beat Tsvangirai resoundingly in the presidential poll.

“People in 2008 voted for them, not knowing that such level of ignorance cannot run this country,” Mugabe said. “But today, people have realised that they (MDC-T) do not have life and direction and voted for Zanu PF. During the inclusive government, it required a lot of patience to work with them. We had very diverse views and it was difficult to negotiate with them because they are very ignorant.”

He added: “You are better off working with an ignorant person who is aware of his ignorance — a person who accepts that he is ignorant. But if you are ignorant of your ignorance, it is a challenge. If you think ignorance is being clever then you have a serious problem.”

Mugabe’s utterances come hardly three days after he delivered a somewhat reconciliatory speech in which he commended Tsvangirai and MDC leader Welshman Ncube for shelving personal differences and offering to enter into a coalition government with Zanu PF over the past four-and-half years.

Soon after he was sworn-in for a fresh five-year mandate last Thursday, Mugabe also pledged to resolve the water crisis in cities, particularly Bulawayo and Harare as well as reviving industry and improving infrastructure.

Referring to Tsvangirai’s court challenge and his attack on the judiciary, Mugabe said:. “This is what my mother used to call being dull.”

He said it was curious that Tsvangirai would expect to be entertained by the same judiciary that he had just called names.

At one of his campaign rallies in the run-up to the July 31 polls, Mugabe said he would suffer heart failure if Harare and Bulawayo ditched him again.

“Are we going to vote? Yes, but how are you going to vote? Harare, Harare, Harare, Bulawayo, Bulawayo, our big cities. Have we forgotten 2008? Have we left behind 2008? I will be shocked. I will have heart failure if I hear Harare votes for MDC, a party with councillors who have caused trouble,” Mugabe said then.

  1. Its not just Harare and Byo that Voted for Morgan, its almost the whole country.

    1. all the zimbabweans voted for mdc tsvangirai, but mugabe was too afraid to rig the votes in byo and harare for fear of uprising. he just manipulated the countryside constituencies and rigged the votes.

      1. @ MAGUMOACHO—It is this kind of ignorance that irks my learned President….And the fact that it flows down to the mdshit support base makes it even more pathetic…KUSAZIVA KUFA!!! Anyway, just for interest’ sake how was your party rigged in the just ended polls??? Maybe you need to give that evidence to your master moregays whon failed even to support his court case with a single piece of evidence……

        As for your article written by an equally ignorant reporter, i agree with the PRESIDENT,,,, He is spot on….Counclis are run by mdshit and if you are not aware, one gutu of that sellout party has been chosen as mayor…SO LET THEM DELIVER!!!! RESIDENTS NEED WATER AND EVERYTHING!!!! The mdshit should just deliver in those areas, while zpf does the same where it won…Fair game…HAPANA INOFURIRA IVETE!!!!

        1. So tell me why Mudede paid Nikuv US$10m for? and why dont you want to release the voting materials for us to see on our own your resounding victory?

          1. Nikuv has been in Zimbabwe handling projects since 2008. That’s what they were paid for. Imi Nikuv payairova basa manga murikupi?

        2. Che kana pasina chekuviga election makawhina zviri pachena morambirei nevoting material for everyone to c.

      2. ah you may be right sha.you know i have never thought about that.if zanu would have won in htown and blues there would have been an uprising zve shuwa.bob is very clever huh

    2. YAH you are right that the whole country voted for Morgan, and your common sense tells you that Morgan is ruling, so keep on ruling, and when you wake up then reality will dawn upon you that dreaming can be so foolish some times.

    3. Liar. How did they loose if it was the whole country.

    4. As I can see Robert Mugabe should not punish the cities’ residents but must deliver something that will satisfy the residents in order for them to vote for him rather than punishing them because if he do so he will be adding more hurtrage they will never like him anymore.he must know that people changes with the situation so lead them to a better situation that punishing. Mwana wako akiti zvakaipa haupaniche uyezve hauuraye unototodzidzisa.

    5. You are right common sense .The population of Harare and Bulawayo combined can we get over a Million people???

    6. Taura hako Common sense

    7. Kana vakuru vari kuti vanhu vemuharare , ivo vanogarepi. ndinonzwa urombo zvikuru, kupererwa ndinokuziva. Takarasima ne MDC handiti makahwina here ko chitongai ka tione handiti kutonga ndiko kwenyu. Chivakai capital uzumba monogara ikoko

    8. I understand why President Mugabe is angry. Most MDC supporters are as ignorant as their leaders and feed on false alarms and negatives. The new thing in town is ‘as ignorant as Tendai Biti’. He said that Zanu pf won because they used special pens from Israel. these pens would make the ballot paper to change such that if you voted for MDC the ballot paper would mysteriously change to a Zanu pf vote.

      Most MDC supporters feed on depondence and the rumour mill. Examples: In harare east a secrete polling station was discovered. Biti had lost but after the ballots from the secrete polling station were discarded he then won, the zim dollar is returnig, South Africa now requires visas for zimbabweans. It is very difficult to reason with such people. They say they have given SADC a dossier of evidence on poll rigging but fail to give the courts the same dossier when requested to do so.

      I am glad that Zanu pf managed to narrow the winning margin by MDC in Harare. I urge the President to forgive these ignorant MDCs. Most youths in Harare have seen the light and are supporters of Zanu pf. If you punish Harare you also punish your growing constituency of young supporters who are critical for winning 2018 elections. The aim should be to win back harare through these young voters. we do not want to hear about MDC come 2018. Their existence gives hope to Rhodies and their kin. If we vanguish the MDC in 2018 we will have automatically stopped these westerners from interfering in Zim affairs.

      1. Even if the war of liberation was not to be fought, Zimbabwe would still be an independent country. You are suffering from dementia my man. Mugabe told ZCTU to form a party if they were contradicting opinions with ZanuPf’s. You are now crying tonga ka nyika yacho kana uchiti wakahwina tione.

  2. A misleading headline, those are facts, and the Harare and Bulawayo councils are mdct run, so they should deliver, that is what the people of Harare and Bulawayo wants. This is exactly what the President said. I don’t see any threats there.

    1. is it the council that should promote resuscitation of industry or it’s the gvt ?

    2. Ok that’s what they voted for. What’s the complaint here. You voted for MDCT so why are you complaining. Who are they expecting to deliver if not those who they voted for

      1. @musa ku complainer chii chacho?mugabe is the one complaining.zvekupanicha vanhu zviri pa manifesto ye zanu here?nonsense.

    3. The problem with Mugabe is that he forgets that he is the CEO of zimbabwe. any failures are rightly blamed on him. only a fool would blame mdc. to illustrate further even if mdc takes the mayoral positions the heads of departments in all major cities are zpf. with mahachi and zvobgo who are zpf in charge of harare what do expect to change. rightly so mugabe will try and shift blame to mdc. people are aware.

      zpf used to blame biti for failure to access money. now lets see what happens. but the future is bleak. the poverty datum line is $500 and mugabe gives a paltry 6% increment on civil servants salaries and he thinks he has mad a monumental achievement.

      its good zpf is now fully in charge and they should deliver. the citizens are not interested on he is charge. they want food, jobs etc not empty promises and grandstanding. zpf please deliver and do not waste time or buy time talking about the past.

      1. With this calibre of so called “leaders” no wonder Zimbabwe will continue on the downward trend. After all this is just an excuse because mugabe knows he has nothing to offer.Fgive us a break from your nonsense.Deliver on your promises or rather rig the economy since you are an expert in that.

      2. the present if made of the past

    4. Reaso who heads these councils? Chombo does. Chombo approves mari dzema councils and pasina mari hapana dhiri and we all know kuti mari haisi kusvika kuma mdc councillors.

      Chembere yapererwa. Schizophrenic chaiyo. Hanzi mhunzi haigadzire huchi. Tongai ka.

      1. @ obama4eva, what animal is called “mhunzi”???

        Cherechedza ari kutonga! It’s not Morgay forsho.

  3. Such utterances coming from a President its shocking the industries are in Harare and Bulawayo not Pfungwe.It seems the man age is catching up with him the other day he says this & then change what type of a Leader do we have

  4. “People from Harare and Bulawayo, to vote for the MDC-T, what do you admire in that party? Now, go and get from the MDC-T what you were promised during the elections,” Mugabe said – kikikikikikikikikikiki!!!!!!!

    imagibe a President of the whole country saying this , Its a pity

    1. “People in 2008 voted for them, not knowing that such level of ignorance cannot run this country,”
      “But today, people have realised that they (MDC-T) do not have life and direction and voted for Zanu PF. During the inclusive government, it required a lot of patience to work with them. We had very diverse views and it was difficult to negotiate with them because they are very ignorant.”

      Learn to read the whole text, not select statements out of context please, thank you!

      1. what’s your point?

        1. Mudara arasa njere nekuchembera..if you ask him now he will say handina kumbodaro

    2. Ehe ngavadye izvozvo

      1. @musa hauna kukwana.vadye izvozvo vana ani?this is nonsense from mugabe.why cant make noise on things on that fake manifesto of yours rather than speaking about mdc?it being an election,i thought people had choices to choose whom they want so whats the hell are you talking about?

        1. We are talking about people eating from where they chose, period!

  5. if the president , commander in chief , chancellor of all universities , first secretary really said this then i now agree that devolution is the way to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Go to hell!!!!

  6. NEWSDAY, please be responsible in your reporting, the truth is far from what you are publishing. This statement is spectacularly taken out of context and it can divide a nation,

    1. The obvious solution is for us, the residents of the two cities to expunge this caricature from our cities, consign him to Marambapfungwe or Mchinji (Malawi).

    2. Is it newday or its the president. The president should retract his statement.

  7. unless it is your agenda to divide us perhaps? Making the country ungovernable? Is that the idea? Shame on you!

    1. Iwe scotv! Do not irritate us, why and how do you defend a quoted speach that was authored in your absence let alone consultation. Zidofo!

  8. So these are the wise words from an all gloriuos president of a country. Sometimes chikoro chaicho chinomboramba kusevenza. If that is exactly how he believes then no wonder we have programmes that are implemented as if they were formulated by a group of primary school children vachitamba mahumbwe pa breaktime.

  9. MDC is a protest movement that is reactionary and is full of diverse idealist. It was going to be very unfortunate for such a party to rule Zimbabwe. It`s good riddance for such an ignoramus party that is there just to critise. Even Lindiwe Zulu testified to the fact that MDC were their worst enemies as they lacked cohesion and proactiveness to the issues of governance.She said she was disappointed and disgraced by the MDC party. Let this be the beginning of the end of these ignoramus and their not so articulate leader.

  10. Its a pity indeed for a national leader to think this way. In any voting excercise you have people who will vote for you and those who will not for you, its normal. When you win a national position then you become the leader of the whole nation and should deliver to everyone not only those whom you think like you.

    Mr President, you a leader f the whole nation not for the cities and towns that voted for you only, get over-yourself and start rebuilding the nation. the bottom line is the majority “voted” for you and lets move on with nation building. People need solutions not “campaigning statements”, makawhina chiitai zvamakati muchaita vakuru

    1. Precisely. A president should not utter words expected from some street people just like some who are commenting here. That is a shame!

  11. True Common sense, the paranoid schizophrenic election robber is failing to focus on real issues, because only he knows the true extent of his illegitimacy! We sincerely hope he lives up to his promise gets that heart failure!!

    1. Now is the time for us to induce the heart failure!

      1. Tichakuvigai mese imi maita heart-failure iyemi vacho, Mukuru wedu asina kufa!!

        1. he is a dead in the mind already, senility is written all over his speeches. Cannot think of how he is going to revive the economy of the country. He has always been a vindictive old man, he will die any angry person I tell. Every speech is oozing of bitterness. I really feel sorry for him, so much anger, hope he can get peace when he dies

  12. Mugabe dont worry, you have the powers to desolve the parliament and do another election, where you can do total rigging 100% Zanu Pf through rigging like what you did it Masvingo and Manicaland.. Just do that and do another election where you are going to rig in numbers, and you will smile that no more MDC in Harare and Bulawayo, NIKUV will be on your side Mr President, I say desolve, Mister… desolve the Parliament Gushungo..

    1. You are right Titus. Let us challenge this clown to dissolve parliament and call fresh elections.

      1. solomon chisoni

        My friend our scenario right now its not easy to desolve parliament but i would urge all MPS to engage in meaningful debate because these guys were elected , and as such the people want some progress wherever they are .

        What i dont agree with is some people who are trying to divide this country by sowing seeds of hate .

  13. Its a pity indeed for a national leader to think this way. In any voting excercise you have people who will vote for you and those who will not vote for you, its normal. When you win a national position then you become the leader of the whole nation and should deliver to everyone not only those whom you think like you.

    Mr President, you are a leader of the whole nation not for the cities and towns that voted for you only, get over-yourself and start rebuilding the nation. the bottom line is the majority “voted” for you and lets move on with nation building. People need solutions not “campaigning statements”, makawhina chiitai zvamakati muchaita vakuru

  14. Someone said MDC guys are bad losers……they were joking…..this one is a real bad one

  15. luckily in zimbabwe people are not on the dole or welfare,we pay at hospitals,schools,overcharged on services rendered by government departments and people pay vat,customs duty,exercise duty so who needs the other badly,people wont feel much

  16. this basically means his cabinet will not deliver the promises that they made and we will not grow as an economy unemployment will remain in the 80s or even worsen.they are already looking for a jacket to hide behind for their corrption and malapractises actives,that they will embark in the new government.

  17. We admire the leadership renewal idea. And hate the idea of our fate being tied to a 90 year old mortal who seeks African glory at the expense of his people.

  18. Oldnad senile. enda unofa Bobo.

  19. President aingoonesa chete hapana kana threat apa but u are just mdc mouthpiece you’ll never fool us

    1. @ Sibs….aingoonesa kuti kudii nhaiwe….kuti anyone who dares not follow him will face the full wreath of his fury????

    2. @Dodo, ndiwe uchafa, I bet you my last dime! Tichakiviga iwe manje-manje.

  20. From out of the heart the mouth speaks. No supposition he spoke all ears listening. Harare & Bulawayo makes the heart of Zimbabwe as its two main arteries and other veins. It is a blessing to grow gracefully.

  21. We are waiting for the heart attack . So Robbery Mugabe wanted everyone to vote for a 90 year old senile individual ? We are not in a one party state . If he decides to punish residents of Harare and Bulawayo he will also punish those who voted for him .I see this as a manifestation of insanity and cognitive dissonance .

    1. Kangai had the heart attack instead.

  22. EARTHQUAKE31JULY

    Sekuru it’s not HARARE & BULAWAYO chete, but the whole country voted for MDC-T but you RIGGED the election through NIKUV together with your uncle MUDEDE. At your advanced age chauchiri kuda kuendera kubasa chii zvese wakalooter wani you are very stupid and silly haikona chembere kukaritsana ne gejo vazukuru varipo

  23. Michael Makamaba

    One thing thay I know for sure is Mugabe is very good at punishing, when he lost the referendum year 2000 weeks after he launched farm invasions, then when he lost 2002 election he launched Murambatsvina immediately after the 2013 election brace for the biggest punishment in your lifetime, watch this space

    1. LADIES AND GNTLMEN DONT BE FOOLED BY ME, I ALSO VOTED FOR ROBERT MUGABE BZ VAMWE VANGU ANA BITI HAVANA DIRECTION TAINGODA KUKUBIRAI MARI CHETE NEKUKUTAMBUDZAI NENZARA.

  24. i see something wrong with this article , the mischiveous sensational headline and what the president was quoted in his sctual words do not in any way sum up any threat , someone help where are the threats here “People from Harare and Bulawayo, to vote for the MDC-T, what do you admire in that party? Now, go and get from the MDC-T what you were promised during the elections,” Mugabe said, describing MDC-T leaders as ignoramuses.

    1. Baba Lumumba, you have forgotten one important thing… ignoramuses vote for ignoramuses! Icho! And it appears we also have ignoramuses in the media, too!!!

  25. Thats insane , coming from a President of a country.Who the hell voted for this old man. Kwakurasika brain uku.

  26. bulawayo yakafa kare. We voted mdc t because we knew very well that zanu had nothing to offer to us. Viva save.

  27. “You are better off working with an ignorant person who is aware of his ignorance — a person who accepts that he is ignorant. But if you are ignorant of your ignorance, it is a challenge. If you think ignorance is being clever then you have a serious problem.”

  28. mdc should work with the west to change and transform harare and bulwayo into great cities, they should introduce and implement things that benefit the these cities, come 2018 we will take back the whole of zimbawe

  29. anxiously waiting for the heart failure to happen.

    1. @Andie, Your heart is going to fail, first…mira uone.

  30. Why waste time responding to such nonsense?

  31. zimbabweans musandinyadzisa kudaro! yes the president said dat let e state house b moved yo uzumba then, tarisai audience yake mawar vets and generals kuHeroes uko so he has to say dat to please them, tarisa e audience kunational sports e international community he has to say things that make him level headed leader. musandinyadzise nekuramba kufunga before elections it was “our zimbabwe” nw it is “my zimbabwe”

  32. zanu pf !!!!!!!!! nxaaaaaa i hate ths sekuru mugabe

    1. @ munhu, uri kamunhuwo zvako. Who cares???!!!

  33. He is not GOD men’s plans are not GOD’S plans so HRE & BYO wait for GOD’S plan.

    1. When you are chosen national leader you are now responsible for all activities,the failure of the 2 two cities will be a measure of leadership.At the end of the day the captain of ship is the last person to leave after ensuring everyone is safe.

  34. LADIES AND GNTLMEN DONT BE FOOLED BY ME, I ALSO VOTED FOR ROBERT MUGABE BZ VAMWE VANGU ANA BITI HAVANA DIRECTION TAINGODA KUKUBIRAI MARI CHETE NEKUKUTAMBUDZAI NENZARA.

  35. The other day he was urging others to be gracious losers yet he cannot be gracious in his supposed victory. I could laugh at this but the old man, who, for a long time has been a disgrace, is now becoming a disaster and for that reason its certainly not a laughing matter.

    Our president for another five years. Cry the beloved country.

  36. Oh Gushogu

    Is burring of a Hiro a platform to change a good statement u made on yo inauguration day,we yo mis cotd now or then because yo statement of inauguration was from the president of the whole country including those who didn’t vote for him.

    what went wrong Mr President

  37. Mugabe stop attacking Tsvangirai, you must deliver what you promised the pple. Tsvangirai is not in power.

    1. Hatisati tapedza naMoregay. Wadenha maMangwiro, wotokunya, …if you didn’t know!!!

      1. Seke Mutema please think about growing the economy before it buries you, Moregay is the least of your problems, mark my words.

  38. lack of Knowledge kills, all these people that are sidelining with bob knows in their heart that it comes as a shock to them that their leader won these elections. go to UMP “Are we going to vote? Yes, but how are you going to vote? Harare, Harare, Harare, Bulawayo, Bulawayo, our big cities. Have we forgotten 2008? Have we left behind 2008? I will be shocked. I will have heart failure if I hear Harare votes for MDC, a party with councillors who have caused trouble,” Mugabe said then.

  39. Next tym mungware isu takatoluma zvedu zvaastraight

  43. Unbecoming of a President. This is cow-herding rhetoric not worthy of anyone in a leadership position. Mr. President please tell us how you are going to grow the economy, how you are going to create employment….how you are going to fix the infrastructure…how you are going to provide clean water, electricity,..how you are going to resuscitate our health system and education..how you are going to encourage business friendly legislation to create an environment conducive to investment. Please Sir. We beg you. Unless these are not your priority.

  44. It is much wiser to look ahead for a better ruler Jesus Christ who will provide for people of all nations and rule impartially .People always have shortcomings and this may include our leaders be it ZANUPF or MDC . But if you look at the perfect functionality of the sun or any other creation you will realise how best Jesus is geared for delivering help to the afflicted ones .Read Psalm 72:7-16 (this happened in King Solomon’s rule but this is prophetic of Jesus’s rule under God’s kingdom)

God bless you.

    1. Gukurahundi tendencies

      Its because he is a Gukurahundi. The spirits of the dead innocent lives are haunting him.

  63. Gukurahundi tendencies

    The Gukurahundi is grown too old, evry day he contradicts himself. The Gukurahundi does not understand democracy. Is he not the one who urged peace and called on everyone to be allowed to vote for a party of their choice? So now that people have voted so whats the problem?
    As a president, you are the president of the whole country including your opponents.

    With such imbecile views, I really wonder what the Gukurahundi ZANU PF supporters admire in this ancient ancestor. The man says stupid, foolish things almost every day.

    Its claimed he has seven degrees, but there is nothing he does or says that shows he has seven degrees. In fact most of the time he talks like some who never went to school – he mouts rubbish all the time.

    I have never heard the Gukurahundi engage in any debate on the economy, economics or law, yet he is said to have economics and law degrees. May be this what happens when one qualifies in prison degrees – there is simply no content.

    The Gukurahundi has spent virtually his entire life an angry man. He has difficulties in being genial and cordial. He is permanently combative – the bastard is abnormal. I really wonder what sort of a father he is at home – probably always shouting and angry at every one.

    Something is seriously wrong psychologically with the Zezuru Gukurahundi!!!!

  64. Gukurahundi tendencies

    What are the effects on their children of the insults and indecent things Mugabe and Grace say in public platforms?

    Psychologists, please advise.

    There are those in cities who voted for Zanu, are they going to be punished as well? How?

  69. WILLARD MUBVUMBI

    Cities are comprised of both the MDC and Zanu supporters, so how are Zanu supporters going to be spared?

  70. EARTHQUAKE31JULY

    At 90 someone wakes up achiti arikuenda kubasa can’t u see guys that this total madness. Ndokutorasika kwenjere kwacho kunorehwa neva kuru uku. Chikwambo zvacho chamurikentsana nacho ichi all those people who died in fake accidents maiti vafa zvachose here?

  71. Guyz the only way to go is devolution,Tsvangirayi wil rule H-twn & Byo & we wil share Mutare and other Areas which have minerals,,Mugabe wil rule all his rural areas, Mugabe is a Lunatic how is he going 2 punish Harare&Bulawayo is he going 2 poison us,if he is punish us dwellers of harare it wil also means he is punishing our mothers who are in Uzumba because we are the ones who provide money & as wel as groceries,

  72. I am failing to see where the President threatened anyone in this article, perhaps its my ignorance. Please enlighten me..

    1. Gukurahundi tendencies

      @Tawanda

      If you can not see that this is a threat, then you can never be helped:

      “People from Harare and Bulawayo, to vote for the MDC-T, what do you admire in that party? Now, go and get from the MDC-T what you were promised during the elections,” Mugabe said, describing MDC-T leaders as ignoramuses.

      HE IS OBVIOUSLY THREATENING MDCs SUPPORTERS IN NOT COOPERATING WITH THE LOCAL GOVERNMENTS OF THE TWO CITIES, SO THAT THEY FAIL TO DELIVER AND THE PEOPLE SUFFER FOR NOT VOTING FOR HIS GUKURAHUNDI PARTY!!

  73. Gukurahundi tendencies

    Ngibona iGukurahundi leli licashulwa yikuthi ama MDC ayala ukulirecogniser. Its now dawning on him that as long as the MDCs dont recognise his so called “victory”, sanctions are not going to be lifted, hence the living ancestor is angry. Bekufanele ajabule ngoba iAfrika yonke iyambuka – manje sekutheni?

    No recognition by the West, sanctions stay – hence the constant outbursts of anger and insults!!

    HOW CAN YOU BE SO ANGRY WHEN YOU WON ELECTIONS???

  74. Don’t take him seriuosly, masasi epanhamo.

  75. The good thing is that there are also people who voted for ZANU PF in Harare & Bulawayo who will suffer with others and teach them to vote like the majority in those areas

  76. Hey moron, concentrate on uniting people instead of segregation. A president is for the country (including MDC) not ZANU PF. You shock me with your level of ignorance Mr. ‘president’. You don’t deserve to be the president of Zim but your party.

  77. The great leader is the president of the whole country. It does not matter whether people voted for his party or not. He ‘won’ the elections, so he must now govern.Why punish Harare and Bulawayo residents? Making fun of the Prime Minister is not the answer.

  81. kusanyara at 90 ua stil luking fo another job to bi a United States of Africa’s president chizorora baba chatunga mari haigutiwii

  82. Bring it on Bob, we are waiting for you. MDC or not you do not care about us. We we will fight you all the way. Remember you are nearer the grave than most of us. Come lets tango.

  83. It’s very sad that in Zimbabwe, a country with a supposedly educated people, one can be attacked verbally or physically, for exercising their legal, democratic and constitutional right to vote for or be a member of a party of their own choice. Prescribing for people what one thinks is best for them simply does not work. Some call it political intolerance although others are more blunt, calling it dictatorship. People have minds of their own and cannot be programmed to think like the next person. This is particularly true when you talk about Harare or Bulawayo, cities which have the highest concentrations of well educated people in the country, who are least likely to allow anyone to intimidate them.

  84. ISU TAKANGE TIRI MUNYIKA NGUVA YESE HAPANA PATAKAMBOONA ZANU KANA ZAPU VACHISUNUNGURA NYIKA. HAMEON KUTI KANA VACHITI NDISU TAKAKUSUNUNGURAI VANENGE VACHIRAVA CHIYI CHACHO.

  86. You shouldn’t have had heart failure.You should go hang. For your own sake 70% voted for Tsvangirai and Mdc.
    Why are you claiming victory when you were not voted for.

  87. isu veku Gweru tabaikana canzuru huori chete chete hameno tosvikepi!

  88. A fool always have reasons for his/her failure.

  89. kikiki ,izinto zomhlaba lezi

  90. shame shame. This coming from a president who claims to be popular. After Gukurahundi this should be the lowest level he has stooped.

  91. There is nowhere in the article where the President said he was going to punish urban dwellers. He simply said everybody to his corner, period. Your expectations r going to b filfulled by the one you voted for. I dont see the foul here. A good mdc mp shall deliver. What he is only saying is work with us. Ok, if the mdc had won, was it going to let me keep my land? Or vainditi hameno nezanupf. Zvakakanganiswa since mdc mutumwa wevarungu kudzosera land parity back to before land reform? They would have said the same. Louder. And another thing, imi makavhotera bhiza ramaiona kuti ririkugamhina what did u expect? That is the ignorance we always talk about. Hanzi rinhwinha chete. Hanzi rakabirirwa. How was it gonna win yo horse had three and half legs? Enough with the rigging u aint gat no proof!

  92. Ndiko kutiza responsibility kauku……nekuti there is a lot to do in towns. Kozvamusina kuwana zero votes in Hre and Byo saka vakakuvhoterai asi vachigara mumatowns moita sei navo?

  93. You so called educated fools of our major cities, can’t you see that your industries, housing, jobs, water, sanitation & infrastructure are going to be given top priority by ZANU PF & the President turn around strategies? You are the worst ignoramuses Zim has ever seen since 1980.

  94. respect chiro chakanaka vakomana. it is the president of our reppublic about whom you speak here. remember always that age and wisdom are factors of unity too just as the human and his shadow move together. lets see a zimbabwe sense of humour in appreciating words of the wise. hazvikwikwidzwi if you see what i mean.

  95. Mukuru uyu haana kumbobvira ada vanhu vemuharare.Handiti vekumbare vakambonzi havana mutupo,nekuti vainge vasina kumuvhotera futi.

  96. Kuuraya Smith. Is that what could have been the sound of victory to you? Would u have been loving Mugabe now? Muvengi was not defeated, hasnt been defeated and evidently hasnt surrendered. He is not the type to surrender by the way. Everyday he comes up with new ways to try to steal whats ours. We have to be alert otherwise we fall. We slowed him down, and soon we will stop him dead. Politics is deep, goes beyond normal thinking. Thats why sometimes things r done we dont understand. It is not for ordinary pple like many who comment on this forum. Most of us r just angry babies. Nothing positive to contribute at all. They say they do not have freedom of speech, expression etc but look how they name our President. If there was never freedom of expression we would have never been a forum.The President never said ‘punish’ but look how everybody is using the word. He never threatened anyone. The heading is misleading. Report what was said not what u think was said. Now u gat pple insulting the President. This is abuse of freedom. I dont know, maybe that works for you.

  97. These are just excuses that are being made before failure. Mr. President, we all know that your government is going to fail again. You have run out of ideas. You need the MDC to give you fresh ideas. I am surprised that you are throwing all these accusations at us when we are responsible for feeding those mouths of yours in the rural areas. We the people in Harare and Buluwayo feed your voters. You can never achieve what we have done for you. When they were dying we never saw you there. It was us and the white people you hate who fed and clothed them. We don’t want this kind of a president, no no. I pray that you die soon, so we can read good news in the papers. Everyday is a struggle for us. Your children are well fed, well clothed and well educated. Our children eat the scraps from your tables. We walk on filthy streets while you walk on a red carpet. You go home in a limousine while we go home in crowded uncomfortable “kombis” that are not road worthy. We drink your waste while you drink WHO certified clean water, yet even the waste sometimes is never there. You feast on a magnificent table while we eat under the moonlight to save our candles. We indeed are your servants but it is strange Mr. President because you are supposed to be civil “servant” number one.

  98. Robert Mugabe you are an ars*hole.

  99. Chemhahara mushana, regai kunyengera vanhu. Directing councils and utility providers to cancel debts is easy, anyone can do that – you really cannot call it delivering on poll promises. The next 5 years will be a measure of how they deliver on poll promises – reducing unemployment and empowering the citizens so that they are able to pay for utilities without the need to cancel debts. Chemhahara mushana kwete ZESA and Water Supply.

  100. NZUNGU NDAMENYA

  101. Cities are cash cows for national coffers world over. They feed into the government purses through taxes such as individual taxes (PAYE in ZIM), VAT and other commercial taxes. The success of these cities as commercial and industrial hubs promotes the well being of a nation and as such this puts the government of the day in good light. There are also certain taxes that the local authority derives from its rate payers and these then help them provide services to these cities. Crying fowl when citizens of a city do not vote for you yet you have the mandate to rule the entire country in regrettable for a world renowned statesman.
