Zanu PF ‘mafia club’: Mliswa


HURUNGWE West independent parliamentary candidate Temba Mliswa yesterday denounced the ruling Zanu PF as a “mafia club” which applied dirty tactics to crush and silence its opponents and former members.


The former Zanu PF legislator made the comments soon after High Court judge Justice Chinembiri Bhunu ordered ruling party youths to move out of his Spring Farm in Karoi.

“The government is now stepping in at the last minute and people are in hospital, they are injured, they have broken limbs, you never replace those broken limbs,” Mliswa said in apparent reference to his four farm workers who were hospitalised on Sunday after they were brutally attacked by Zanu PF youths camped at his farm.

“ . . . not because you differ politically, then you must go for somebody’s farm. It’s behaving like a mafia, they go for where your heart is, they go and take your kids so that you act. So in taking my farm, it’s trying to take my heart so that I react.”
Justice Bhunu entered the judgment by consent after the alleged farm invaders Nigel Murambiwa, Chinjayi Kambuzuma, Tapiwa Masenda and Silas Chimbiro consented to leaving the property.

“I would never even encourage anybody to invest in agriculture for as long there is no rule of law and rule of law respected by the party itself because as a ruling party you want to ensure that your so-called programmes are successful,” Mliswa added.

Asked whether he would go back to the farm after the invaders have moved out, Mliswa said: “I don’t think that anyone would want to invest in any political farm. What this has basically proved is any Zanu PF politician is not worth investing with in terms of agriculture because the day that he goes on the wrong side of the party, his farm will be invaded, so it puts a dent on everything and I cannot continue like this.”

The former legislator said the invasion had disrupted operations and was an indictment on the entire land reform programme.
“It’s meant to empower, not to disempower. One cannot be spending money going to court on things done and incited by leaders who should be protecting this government and the land reform programme,” he said.

Mliswa is contesting the June 10 by-election against Zanu PF’s Keith Guzah.


  1. Okay Mr Mliswa with all due respect less than a year ago you were the chairman of that Mafia Club now you are crying face the music munyerere. Pamaifamba ne youth muchirova vana veZimbabwe during the farm invasion zvainakidza nhasi venyu vana vorohwa makuti zvaipa futi?

    • TB, all you think of is ‘tit for tat’, look forward and denounce what is wrong at each given time. What is happening now cannot be said to be ‘good’ because Mliswa once belonged to the ‘mafia club’.

      • You think when they say what goes around comes around they are lying. Mliswa must face the music period. Zanu PF politicians are political cannibals and Mr Mliswa should know better.

  2. That is exactly what you were doing before you were fired Mliswa. You must test your own medicine. Even if that farm is taken you will loose nothing because you took that farm together with its produce, cattle and everything that was there by force. Vatokukoniwa, dai vakudambura musoro chaiwo.

  3. Chawakadya chopfuka Mliswa, when we were all crying that Zanu PF is a mafia organization you did not see that. Now that zvauyawo kwako nhasi vaakuchemei? Don’t also forget that all these people causing untold suffering to humanity will pay heavily for their sins very soon. Iwe pawaiita izvi vakambofunga here kuti zvichauyawo kwauri, please usatombochema zvako, you must suffer, i hope your tormentors today also realize kuti navowo vachasangana nazvo sooner that later. Right now vamwe vari kupenga nenyaya dzekuuraya vanhu vasina mhosva but we never learn, ndosaka ndati suffer Temba, and you shall suffer heavily for your past crimes. Hamunzwe!!! Vakasika munhu here iwe? Saka munotambudzirei vana vaMwari?

  4. Mliswa is now taking a stand to fighting the injustices being perpetrated by the zanu-pf gvt. to the defenseless ordinary Zimbabweans. All you who are judging him of his perceived past, I challenge you to tell me if what he has embarked on is wrong? I challenge you too to brief me of what contributions you have personally done to fight the zanupf brutalities other than being simple minded internet commentators?

    • Of course u r judged by yo past, Mliswa shd SUFFER n u cn Suffer wit hm if u wnt. Sheps if u r Mliswa then let me tel u ths, u caused/broke ppl’s limbs, maimed n killed saka uchakaura hausati watanga. If Mliswa’s 2 b readmitted in2 ZANU PF 2day he wl obviously do as he dd b4, kill, maim, rape, torture

  5. Kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk!

    asi as u are being brutalised we say welcome to the fight against brutality as for now chimbotsvukira chitema chidzoserwa nechitema…. pwakakakakakakkaka cry cry Mliswa

  7. Ahh, thula wena Themba. You stammered so heavily as if you owned the world. You and your god mother have a lot to answer for.

  8. You think when they say what goes around comes around they are lying. Mliswa must face the music period. Zanu PF politicians are political cannibals and Mr Mliswa should know or should have known better.

    • Mliswa you were happy when you were the godfather of the mafia. Serves you right I hope you are crying for “your” farm.

  9. zvinonakira pfeni kunyenga tsokotsoko kuti rega ndimboitawo pfeni woti pangu padiki,
    heya heya!

  10. watiwadii ucham…… uchaiona zanu pf, when you were the chairman of zanu you used to say tsvangirai must be locked up or have you forgotten, mark my words by this time next year you will not have a farm : zanu giveth , zanu taketh

    The MDC strongly condemns the unbecoming and barbaric behaviour of self
    styled Zanu PF protégé Themba Mliswa who on Tuesday grabbed a Copac video
    camera and ran away with it to “God knows where” during the Second All
    Stakeholders’ Conference held in Harare.

    That Mliswa acted in such a barbaric manner in the presence of police
    officers is mind boggling given that the police are a State arm responsible
    for ensuring peace and order at all times.

    It then makes the police as much guilty of the committed offence as Mliswa
    and deals a blow to the credibility of the national force in protecting and
    maintaining order.

    This showing by the police in circumstances as these vindicates the much
    held fears that the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) is indeed an appendage of
    Zanu PF and therefore perpetrates violence at the sponsorship of the State.

    The fact that Mliswa has not yet been apprehended and charged for bringing
    the august conference into disrepute puts doubt in the minds of the people
    of Zimbabwe in the ability of the police force to deal with violence in the
    next coming elections in 2013.

    The MDC takes great exception at Mliswa’s unbecoming behaviour and
    unreservedly condemns police’s connivance in such actions. The culture of
    impunity that the Zanu PF party intends to perpetuate should not be

    The MDC therefore calls for all peace loving Zimbabweans and the
    international community to condemn any acts covertly or overtly expressed by
    any member or party which is bent on creating mayhem and disturbing peace as
    the nation prepares for the referendum and elections next year.
