Zanu PF split imminent as Mujuru confronts Mugabe

A SPLIT is imminent in Zanu PF as former Vice-President Joice Mujuru and her allies have made the most damning attack ever of President Robert Mugabe’s leadership and indicated they will commence a legal challenge that could likely lead to a split as early as next week.

In a statement yesterday issued by dismissed Presidential Affairs minister Didymus Mutasa, who signed off as the bona fide Zanu PF secretary for administration, the Mujuru allies attacked Mugabe for allegedly displaying a deep-seated historical failure to correctly handle internal contradictions in the ruling party.

They also accused Mugabe of failing to live up to the expected standards of being a national non-partisan leader in the lead-up to the December elective congress that endorsed constitutional amendments that went against the party’s founding principles of one-person one-vote.

The Mujuru group berated First Lady Grace Mugabe for reportedly preaching “the gospel of hate in the presence of our very impressionable youths and the traumatised impoverished population”.

Grace was also accused of leaving a trail of destruction and division in the ruling party in collaboration with her husband.

“Outside Zanu PF and the country’s constitutions and any moral tenets, . . . In the build-up to this illegal congress, it became clear that this clique of evil plotters had successfully waylaid Amai Grace Mugabe and Comrade Robert Gabriel Mugabe and started using them as weapons to unleash venomous and uncouth statements against anyone they perceived to be standing for the original Zanu PF values, ideals and ethos.”

Mutasa said: “As upright cadres of the revolution, we resolutely and patiently waited for the cardinal direction of our elected First Secretary and President of Zanu PF, but his customary clear and unequivocal stance did not come until this undemocratic congress.”

Mutasa said: “In disbelief, Zanu PF and the whole nation listened to their leader berating his own protégés not only in the party, but in government and the august House of Parliament.

“It will go down in the annals of our Zanu PF history that for the first time the elected leader alienated himself from the people by this behaviour. Instead of mapping the road for Zimbabwe’s economic recovery and major policies uplifting our people, the congress became a farce and degenerated into a praise and worship playhouse.”

Mutasa also said his allies feared that the episode led by a clique of newcomers commonly referred to as amafikizolo had robbed Mugabe of his legacy after a charade of a congress.

“We strongly and regrettably bemoan the fact that this clique has robbed President RG Mugabe of his legacy as a unifier, a rational thinker and not only a national leader, but also one who inspired the region and the continent of Africa,” he said.

He denounced the votes of no confidence as a “whirlwind of legislation of mob rule, summary expulsion of loyal members for perceived support of a sitting Vice-President and, as mentioned above, departure from the undisputable tenet of the liberation struggle — one-man one-vote — to imposition of leaders, we now wonder how the nation, region and continent view our once revered President”.

Mutasa declared the congress a nullity and promised to take legal action for remedy.

“We are therefore calling upon all loyal members and constitutionally-elected leaders to remain calm and promote peace as we pursue appropriate legal channels to reclaim the leadership of the party from the jaws of political vultures,” the ex-minister said.

Mutasa said contradictions within Zanu PF and society as a whole were natural and expected, but these were non-antagonistic and should be resolved through debate, dialogue and negotiation.

He made a rallying call: “We are therefore calling on Zanu PF cadres to join us in refusing to accept the illegal congress and its outcomes; we call on our Dear Comrades to stand united and remain resolute in their defence of the true values of the liberation struggle towards which we all made contributions which has been hijacked by amafikizolo.”

He alleged that the amafikizolo clique “has introduced a sinister political culture of hatred, corruption, conflict, division, indiscipline, manipulation and recklessness, which was the antithesis of the traditional democratic norms, and characteristic of Zanu PF”.

The Mujuru faction believes that “if Zanu PF allows this to go unchallenged, we would be indirectly posing a threat to the National Constitution of the Republic of Zimbabwe. This approach to constitutionalism by a ruling party can pose a risk to constitutionalism at the national level”.

“We refuse therefore to allow this poisonous weed to blossom within the party for which many gallant sons and daughters have dedicated their entire political lives to and many more died in pursuit of the principle of ‘one-man one-vote’,” Mutasa said.

    Whether you go on house top, Mutasa you are already history. If you need to be jailed go ahead because you wasted us for these years and just because today you have been ditched out and you appear to be a correct thinker. You have demonstrated the character of a sellout period. Batai munhu yakataurwa naMai Mujuru kwaChihuri Commissioner.
    Nyadzi dzinokunda rufu. You want Mugabe’s head according to your utterances. Iwe Mutasa ungaudze hure paFoni kuti unoda kuuraya VaMugabe iwe…… Mutasa vawe kuti jairira.

    Kkkkkkk;

  4. Gamatox Gangster

    The gamatox fight back? Let’s see when Lord Cremora comes back from ‘leave’.

  5. kkkkkkk 9 provincial chairpersons vakanzi vote of no confidence vachinzi vapanduka kukangosara one only. really how can the majority inzi yapanduka against one. kuwirirana kwe 9 provinces means panenyaya irikuvharika apa kkkkkk

  6. Lord Cremora is not on leave, he is being ‘juiced’ in Singapore. Tired old dude. Very selfish guy. Nxaaaaaa…

  7. Saka where is Mujuru in this article?? How did she confront Mugabe??

    1. I hope Mujuru and Mutasa are together here otherwise Mutasa could have dug an even bigger hole for himself…He is not liked much by the public and this would be a huge stone on his political graveside…Mujuru should be persuaded to take a position not hide behind Mutasa.

    2. Suluman Macheso

      @Garikayi, I think the inference made by the daft Newsdeath reporter is that Lord Gamatocks is spokesman for Mujuru fraction. The reporters at Newsdeath are quite daft.

  8. Suluman Macheso

    We live in Christon Bank. We heard that when Mad Grace comes back from Singapore she wants to chase all the people in Christon Bank so she can build a university for orphans? Is this true? Please Newsdead, investigate….

  9. This a typical case of sour grapes and honestly speaking Mutasa now realises that we are a “traumatised impoverished population” and wants to be taken seriously. You have had your time what the Mujuru group can only do is the scorched earth policy so that other capable people take over the national leadership

    1. And why does Mtasa expect the court to deal fairly with him. Welcome to the other side

      1. Besides which they are all thieves and murderers

  10. Shut up Gamatox. You realise you are no longer effective to weevils and you want to turn weevils into weeds than you become glyphosate. Kkkkkkkkk. You are done and done for good!!! Apologise to Christpower.

  11. goodchildgonebad

    Dhidhi got a taste of own medicine,remember you were at the forefront implementing dump zanu pf policies-violence,property dispossession,stifling freedom of expression,remember burning and banning the dailynews in rusape now the Frankenstein I helped create is coming to devour you,take it in your stride comrade muzanu munorarwa maziso akavhurika pawakavhara maziso tarisa zvakaitika usacheme ndomatambiro emuzanu

  12. Jameson Njongore

    Mutasa is a real man. Murume chaiye. Indoda sibili. This Mangoma spirit is what has been lacking in our politics and that is why we have so many dictators ruling political parties and public organisations. Well done Didymus!

    1. Mangoma and Mutasa are homeboys. All very troublesome indeed

  13. WILLARD MUBVUMBI

    Lets sit, relax and watch the drama.

  14. Mujuru confronts Mugabe where is the story what a pathetic form of journalism that has befallen newsdead. not even a single statement made by Mujuru as headlined endai munofudza mombe kumusha kana musina zvekureporter what a shame of a newspaper a headline not supported by facts nor a reliable source.

  15. Gamatox Dhiziri don’t waste our time. Shut up and concentrate on farming. If you have the energy you will fight another day.

  16. Ogp, i want to believe that the heading is an intelligent one and therefore only intelligent minds can unravel its meaning.I think the headline does not refer to the person of the former vice president but to the Mujuru Faction.When Mutasa speaks he is speaking for the faction and hence the pronoun “We,”unless if you say you know the” we” does not include Joyce Mujuru of which i doubt.How can you say that hapana zvekureporter when it is becoming more and more imminent that Zanu is heading for a demise.

  17. Tichazovepi Varwivehondo

    Excessive bootlicking will lead to shit on your face one day, not forgetting fart. This is your own making Cde Dhiziri. The people of Zimbabwe have no sympathy with you at all coz for years you have been part of the illegal regime that brought suffering and death to millions of our people. You made bob untouchable and equated him to Jesus. Your letter is again very contradictory as on one hand you glorify Matibili and on the other you blast him for the farce congress. Now which is which. If you want our support denounce Matibili publicly and apologize to all Zimbabweans for the role you played in suppressing the wishes of the people.

    1. Fantastic Analysis, Spot On. Hatidi kujairirwa Didy

  18. Interesting replies. What ever we sow we will reap. May ZPF be splintered into a thousand pieces and or someone with a bit of guts and honour must stand up and confess their sins to God and the nation and begin a healing process. They have brought untold suffering to this nation. We in this life get away with nothing. No sin will forever be hidden. but God is gracious and if anyone of us come with true repentance He forgives and restores.

  19. Mutasa’s statement is a very nice one but would have been powerful had it come in the year 2000. Anyway, I give him benefit of the doubt. At least there are still people speaking against the establishment. Rugare Gumbo has been a lone voice since his dismissal. Shame on ZANU PF. I had all the respect for Mr Mugabe until he handed power to Grace.

  20. Simpson Mudumbwi

    That’s the revolutionary spirit Cde Nyati (Mutasa). You have shown that you are the original nyati ( buffalo). Well done Buffalo Soldier. Don’t be intimidated by little man who live on borrowed courage from security forces. Tunga munhu nyati!

  21. Ana Mutasa mazoti tasa zvino hapana chenyu apa zororai murugare , anotevera imi anopenga hamuna gara imi .

  22. Interesting turn of events. Zvazoshata nhasi nhai VaMutasa. Tambai bhora racho tione!

  23. In as much as Mutasa is guilty for being part of the Mugabe misrule, I cannot help but to admire his courage on standing up on behalf of many other top dogs in Zanu PF who are unhappy about the anarchy in their party. Guys, it takes bravery to confront Mugabe given his control of state appratus. For a moment, please lets salute Nyati for walking where the “angels” fear to tread. Its getting interesting now!

  24. In the long run death of a liberation movement after independence is inevitable. Some revolutionaries confirmed that after the revolution, revolutionaries have no role to play except spreading the revolution to other parts of the world. At the moment the country or ordinary people are in search for the freedom and fulfillment of Man. One day the abuse will reach a level which is enormous, nature will rise up, and claiming her original rights, overturn a corrupt political system. Those who enjoy benefiting from the corrupt system enjoy more when they know a lot of other people have been left out on the pleasure.

  25. Nyati imhenyu. he is was my MP and i think i really dislike him and his party but apa munenge mune point Nyati. svuuranai!!!

  26. It’s sad to see this Mdhidhinyasi dancing like a headless chicken. Is it difficult to read that the people do not like the kind of crap that the gamatoxes were dishing out. They had replaced Morgan and the MDC’s as the West’s hope for a successful regime change. Let me ask again Didymus, “I f you represent the true values, views and aspirations of ZANU PF why did all the who is who in the opposition rush to the defence of Teurai and the Gamatoxes, wasn’t that the clearest sign that you guys were pursuing opposition and western agenda. Be advised, no court decision will change our values and our opinions. Instead of being remorseful you are becoming opposition radicals and we will treat you as such. Remember. all opposition has one Western neck which can always be dealt with by one blow from the anti-imperial sword.

    1. Zimbos it’s ok to criticize each other but hate and living in the past does not help .Mtasa is saying the truth whether he practiced it against others to me it’s neither here nor there,at least he has seen the light and stood up against it let’s embrace him and fight togather to remove this evil regime.When time was ripe MDC was formed and led by people who some belonged to ZANU pf ,we never questioned why they had stayed so long in ZANU when the “the Chief Justice “Dumbuchenas formed forum ,the Tekeres Zum .we see the light at different intervals so let them join and we walk togather .

  27. Zvipiko apa. What split? Who will ever vote for cruel Didymus?

  28. Inonzi ZANU vanonyatsoiiziva vanoti inukusia uchitamba chinjonjo. Vana Mutasa makuchitanmba chinjonjo chachi manje.

  29. Movie iya yonakidza manje inenge yakuda kupera.

  30. Eh, caterer ndodawo carton hombe yemapop corn nekenhi recoca cola. Movie iri riri kunakidza.

  31. Yes va Mutasa. I applaud you for this bold step because the only ingredient necessary for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing. The liberation struggle was not fought for just one family. No no no! Taramba!

  32. Politics is a game of interests, chances and opportunities, no permanent friends, no permanent enemies only permanent interests. If Mutasa’s interests have all of a sudden coincided with the national interests, I will work with him. If an opportunity presents itself to have Zanu-PF Big wigs fight each other in an open arena to the betterment of our Country, I will join in to help speed up the process. Pamberi na Didymus Mutasa, Pamberi ne Gamatox, Pasi ne Zanu-PF.

  33. time has a way of unravelling things (rinamanyanga hariputirwi)

  34. @ mwana wevhu, I think ogp is right in the sense that we did not hear the regrouping of Mujuru faction since they were scattered by zanu. Moreover, its not confirmed Mutasa is their spokesperson. We want what was quoted from Mujuru’s mouth. However, if Didmus is their vocal orifice, then Newsday shld say; “Mujuru faction confronts Mugabe”

  35. The cake has shrunk to dangerously low levels so much that the looters and wealth destroyers has started reducing themselves until only one is left. Now we know what we always suspected, these people have no interest in anyone but themselves. Mutasa’s complaints are understandable and will be ignored and forgotten tomorrow unless he take up arms????

  36. sabhuke vhura zipi part 2 kikikikik ngaitsve

  37. Kondozi v Dydimus

    Nyati. Jonso and Mushohwe destroyed Kondozi. Mushohwe and his brother took over the farms and now they are a bush. I saw 5 herd of cattle on 400h. Vadzingwa nevakadzinga vese vakauraya nyika.

  38. Its so sad that someone like Mutasa is saying this after all the past 35 years we have been crying more than him and he is part of the regeme which makes us suffer. Its also unfortunate that he is only worried about his side and part position and not even concerned about the mojority of zimbabweans who have been crying lawlessness all the past 35 years. Whereas its baseless if he is attacking the sytsem he made and his collegues and he is failing to attack King cremora the centre of divided rule. Killing a snale conrade Nyati u have to attack the head not the tail. Shame to u because u’re not of any help to our long suffering as Zimbabweans as u’re fighting for ur own goal.

  39. saka MDC is no longer in the picture

  40. He alleged that the amafikizolo clique “has introduced a sinister political culture of hatred, corruption, conflict, division, indiscipline, manipulation and recklessness, which was the antithesis of the traditional democratic norms, and characteristic of Zanu PF”.

    Umafikizolo is hijacking the party, and it will be more democratic and transformed ZANU PF, one that is technocratic not partisan, national not regional, a little like the ANC model, not the best, but definitely a few notches more efficient. Mnangagwa shall go next, the weevil is waiting to pounce at the most opportune moment-you all guess when that is in event, timing ought to be before 2018-Watch how he shall do it…

  41. Kana kuine chinhu chinozivikanwa navaMugabe neZanu PF ndechekuti maZimbo tirimaCOWARDS of the highest order, ndosaka tichishandisa mapseudonyms when making comments mumanyuzupepa. Wake up Zimboz, get rid of cowardice! Let’s not be like Bob’s cronies who have helped institutionalise BOOTLICKING and made it part of our culture, like Didymus is doing even now.
    Real Zimboz use their real names, as far as I believe.

  42. Mayaya Vharazipi

    Pamwe ndini ndisinganyatsonzwisisa chirungu guys, handisi kuona kuti headline iri kuenderana papi nenyaya iyi, in any case i don’t have tears for this so called gamatox especially for this bald headed dhiziri paChinhoyi. These guys are now appealing for public sympathy because they have fallen from Lord Cremora’s favor. They used to celebrate our suffering. You are now tasting the bitterness of your own medicine, please stop irritating us.

  43. Zpf nonsense. Wasting our time. Bullshit. Mutasa is just as evil as everyone else in this irrelevant political party. Shedding crocodile tears. Bastard.

  44. Can a rotten egg make fresh omelette??? Am very much convinced this letter its not Mutasa who wrote it. This is a well ochestrated zanu plan to expell the guys from party. Remember Tendai Biti in 2008 was arrested for the dossier which was placed into media. This so called press statement from Mutasa and allies is dossier planted with the likes of the Group of four. Mutasa is not that educated to write all those satement. Mark my words. Zimbabweans we easily forget and zanu twist us with so many way to attract our attention and forget our main aim of rising up and fight dictatorship.

  45. Start a new lucrative career. Our firm is looking for 10 people to represent our services….

  46. “The Mujuru group berated First Lady Grace Mugabe for reportedly preaching “the gospel of hate in the presence of our very impressionable youths and the traumatised impoverished population”. How interesting, when they were one happy family it was ok to do the same to the mdc and the general population but when its done within its a problem. Hierocracy!

  47. you are on the right way cde Mutasa. catch the bull by the horns. we support you

  48. YOU ARE NOW HAVING THE TASTE OF YOUR OWN MEDICINE MUTASA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOW ITS TIME FOR YOU TO TASTE THE LIFE WE HAVE ENDURED FOR THE PAST 35 YEARS! WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND! YOU ARE NOW GOING TO DIE IN FOREIGN LAND AND SHAMES!!! WONT EVEN BE LAID IN THE HEROES ACRE THAT YOU PEOPLE SO MUCH CHERISH! HA!HA!!!!!HA!HA!HAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
