Grace fumes as women walk out

FIRST Lady Grace Mugabe yesterday reacted angrily when Zanu PF supporters in Bulawayo walked out on her “Meet the People Tour” at Amazulu Sports Club before she had finished addressing them and threatened to withhold her seed donations if the walkout continued.

This was after dozens of fatigued female party supporters started marching out after spending more than half the day standing in the sun and on empty stomachs while waiting for the event to end.

“You are disorganised, Bulawayo. This is disrespectful. We are about to finish. Sit down, where are those women going? Anyone who doesn’t sit down will not receive the farming inputs I brought,” she said in annoyance.

“If you stand up while I am speaking, you are inferring that I am speaking nonsense,” said an upset Grace at the continued walkout.
“I love you, women, and I mean it, yet you walk out while I speak.”

As she raged on, sections of the crowd cheered her and this just seemed to spur her on and added fuel to her fury.

“It’s unfair. Come back and sit down. It’s Gamatox spirit. I do
not lead fools. You think I am fool? If you stand up when Amai is speaking, you are showing that what I am saying does not make sense. I love you, women.”

Bulawayo has not been a favourable hunting ground for Zanu PF as it has remained an MDC-T stronghold since 2000 despite the high turnouts at the ruling party’s campaign rallies.

“But here in Bulawayo, Bulawayo, Bulawayo, what’s wrong with Bulawayo? We came here at White City Stadium [during 2013 election campaigns] and the leadership of the party promised the President [Robert Mugabe] that they have done their homework and will sweep all the seats,” she said.

“We left very happy. But the results amazed us. The Bulawayo leadership is not showing unity of purpose. Whether you like it or not, there is factionalism.”

Grace ranted against factionalism and chastised the party’s regional leadership for engaging in nasty leadership fights.
She said if there was unity of purpose in Matabeleland, there would not be five candidates vying for the post of Second Vice-President.

Grace said those that had declared their interest in the top post had no respect for each other.

Ministers Simon Khaya Moyo and Kembo Mohadi, Senator Naison Khutshwekhaya Ndlovu, Zapu stalwart Ambassador Phekezela Mphoko and former Zipra commander, ex-minister Ambrose Mutinhiri, have shown interest in the post, left vacant after the death of Vice-President John Nkomo in 2012.

Grace charged that some of the candidates, whom she did not name, had no leadership qualities to the extent that they could not even tend to vegetable gardens in their backyards.

“If there was unity of purpose, I would not be hearing five names of people vying for a post,” she said.

“If you want a position, first consult others, but those after the post are now using their current party positions to bulldoze. We understand that you fought during the liberation struggle, but that does not mean you have qualities for most things. Not all of us can be in leadership positions.”

Whenever she railed against factionalism, Zanu PF youths would chant “Gamatox”.

Some Zanu PF youths came to the rally clad in T-shirts inscribed “Phansi leGamatox” in apparent reference to a Zanu PF faction reportedly led by Vice-President Joice Mujuru, in the bitter succession battle to succeed Mugabe.

Others carried Mazoe Orange Crush bottles and wore T-shirts written “Feel Mazoe Crush”.

Grace received the endorsement to lead the Women’s League at her Mazowe Orphanage Home in Mashonaland Central Province where she was mandated to “crush” factionalism.

The reference to Mazoe Orange Crush could be a witticism, referring to the popular fruit juice and Grace’s new-found role to crush factionalism in Zanu PF.

“If you don’t heed my advice on factionalism, be warned this will be your end,” she warned.

“Down with Gamatox,” said the youths, urging top party officials to also chant the same slogan while they were being introduced.
The derogatory term was first used by the party’s secretary for administration Didymus Mutasa in June this year while calling for the removal of party members bent on destroying Zanu PF from within.

Mutasa then was urging Mugabe to “apply Gamatox”, the trade name of a powerful pesticide, to rid the party of “weevils” that had infiltrated it.

Mugabe had branded Information minister Jonathan Moyo a weevil.
At yesterday’s rally, even those considered to be part of the weevils also joined the “Gamatox” chorus, apparently to save their skin.

The First Lady, who has so far held similar campaign rallies in eight provinces, also accused top party officials of failing to emulate Mugabe’s “good leadership qualities” despite spending most of their time in meetings with the 90-year-old veteran leader.

  1. ZPF come to Byo with the Dr………….Cant speak a word of Ndebele……..(Won’t listen to you)

  2. Does she think these urban dwellers are farmers?? Really this woman must go back to her palace and forget all about politics. She is a real nuisance and has left her right place. Mugabe’s kitchen.

    1. GOOD ADVICE: don’t not waste your time talking about these already rich politicians while other people are enjoying their lives with money without even paying attention to these dirty .politicians. See how this poor Zimbabwean woman became a millionaire just by buying and selling accidented vehicles. Very interesting.

    2. zvipfukuto zvaakudya Gamatox riya manje. the composition of the delegeation is just as good as that of the tsholotsho declaration. a team of weviles now meeting the pple. thank u those women who walked out to find some food so that they can listen to the Gamatox resistant team. chokwadi chichabuda pacvhena. the congress will come n go same as the 2018 elections will come n go.m

    3. my friend’s mom makes $88 /hr on the internet . She has been without work for nine months but last month her payment was $12290 just working on the internet for a few hours.
      browse around this site,.,,,,, Works6.cᵒm

      1. If your friend’s mom is making that much, why don’t you do it youself, instead of annoying us? Sod off!

        1. Thank you. I totally agree.

    4. It is time that the people of Bulawayo notice the arrogance of Politicians.Are u so desperate that you are baited by a bag of seeds to vote for arrogance.Work up and smell the coffee.

  3. Phansi ngeGamatox means phambili ngamaweevils. Watch this space. Baba Mugabe should take be doing these ‘meet the people tours’ instead of having someone do ‘scold the people tours’. When you see women physically walking out they would have emotionally walked out moons ago. Makes me feel men should take their responsibilities. The last time we pushed women in front to fend for the nation, we were all chased out of Eden!

  4. I do not believe she is fighting any factionalism but rather propping up one faction, thus hiding your head in the sand. If you say down with Gamatox, how about the “weevils”?

    1. Yes Chen, if they want to rid themselves of gamatox they shall soon find their granaries infested with weevils! History has a tendency to repeat itself and now Zimbabwe has its own version of the famed Marie Antoinette. Our new addition to the academic fraternity, Lady Dr.Graceless Mugabe does not understand why the peasants have no sadza on their plates when they can simply ” eat cake.” It is a sin for five men to aspire to be vice president but it is okay when she herself, who has never exhibited any known leadership qualities till now, apart from tending to orphans at a Mazowe orphanage, to aspire for higher office, when Zanu (pf) is littered with tried and tested cadres. The Grace Mugabe’s traveling comedy show is proving to be the funfair to beat all other funfairs! Outrageously hilarious.She should now sign up for her own sitcom!

    2. taura hako (u can talk)

  5. and what qualities does she herself posses which she now wants to claim to be a good judge of…hahaha what a circus…same old tricks zokuthembisa abantu inhlanyelo ma bengahlala bakulinde the whole day bengadlanga…hamba le nhlanyelo yakho we are no FOOLS!!

Maimugabe solve your problems in your house zanu pf do not come to Bulawayo and think you are mother here. live us in peace.we are not fools as you think,we understand you people very well.

  13. Ko nhai sei muchitukana in puplic

  14. The women’s reaction is a manifestation of their frustrations which echoes the general frustration of people with this reckless woman. Wait when you go to Bindura today we want you to denigrate the person of the VP and you will realise their all along you were being fooled. Anywhere you have confirmed that you are using maize seed to buy people yet you accuse others of vote buying.Dofo ndiro rinoramba richidzokorora chinhu chimwe chete with the same results.Pray that you husband lives forever.Tichakuzvuzvurudza mutara.

    1. Wezhira Wezhara

      We want Mai Mujuru out totally out and if that means propping up Grace so be it but if u don’t want civil war remove Mai Mujuru from succession equation…Mashonaland had had their time esp Mash Central hutongi must go to other regions also…

  17. flattering is a sin. PSALM 5 vs 9 says so. inmagine improvements that cld be done to our nations if voters elected leaders based on their RECORD, rather than on the basis of their flattering.Flattering is a form of lying. dr grace, dont abuse wisdom from god, that is flattering. read PSALM 12 vs 3-4 before its too late.this is africa, the very same pple u r belittling while they can not defend themselves shall ruthlessly crush u. a monkey that climps higher in a tree exposes dangerously is bottom part.

  22. Once a wiseman said: Mind the way you treat people as you climb up the ladder because you are going to meet the same people on your way down! Let those with ears hear!

    1. That’s Lucky Dube for you bro, well said!!!

  29. A turkey is chatting with a bull.
    “I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree,” sighs the turkey, “but I just haven’t got the energy.”
    “Well, why don’t you nibble on some of my droppings?” replies the bull. “They’re packed with nutrients.”
    The turkey pecks at a lump of dung and finds that it actually gives him enough strength to reach the first branch of the tree.
    The next day, after eating some more dung, he reaches the second branch.
    Finally after a week, there he is proudly perched at the top of the tree.
    Unfortunately he is spotted by a farmer, who shoots him out of the tree.
    Moral of the story: Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won’t keep you there.

  30. Kanti vele kwenzakalani.Something is wrong somewhere, but let them tear each other apart.

  31. Good thing loud mouth disGrace has now been positioned to lead Zanu PF women’s league, now her venomous mouth will further divide and weaken Zanu PF leading to it’s removal . The Lord answers prayer in many ways. Just to think Zimbabwe a country once the bread basket of Africa is now an empty basket case. Shame on you Robert Mugabe for destroying a country you took over from Ian Smith with everything. A country that had massive foreign currency reserves today it’s in minus, a country that had a fabulous network of well tarred roads today its all potholes everywhere. You cant even repair the roads someone else built let alone built new ones. A country that had a vibrant vibrant industry, once the envy of the world, now its just but the Great Zimbabwe ruins. Now the country has become laughing stock and Zimbabweans stoop so low in foreign countries, thanks to you Robert.

  32. Smile ZIMBABWE smile.#Most High guide yah pipo fi success.

  33. I know for sure kuti dai pasina masanctions dai pasina zvese izvi.Varungu vanoita kuti vakuru vatukane.Instead of removing sanctions we are busy removing each other.

  35. I really think we need to give Dr Grace more credit, after all she is achieving what no statesman or politician has achieved in 30years.She is uniting Zimbabweans across the political divide and in the process will destroy ZPF in the process.Lets give her another doctorate while she is still hot.She represents the greatest miscalculation in Mugabe’s era and signals grave desperation.Come to think of it – maybe she is the CIA mole!#Stolen

    1. Hahahahahaha, Good one!!

  36. I didn’t know that Grace Mugabe is such a lie. I attended her rally yesterday i was surprised to hear her saying i will withdraw my seed if you continue walking out. Is this not vote buying? She was preaching the same gospel of factionalism and vote buying when she is also buying the votes. She expected the woman to listen to her lies with empty stomach. Weldone Bulawayo i am proud of you ladies you proved that you don’t tolerate nonsense.

  37. “You are disorganised, Bulawayo. This is disrespectful. We are about to finish. Sit down, where are those women going? Anyone who doesn’t sit down will not receive the farming inputs I brought,” she said in annoyance.
