WAR Veterans Minister, Christopher Mutsvangwa has renewed his attacks on Finance Minister, Patrick Chinamasa for embracing International Monetary Fund (IMF) strategies, warning him to stop his overtures to the Bretton Woods institution.

Christopher-Mutsvangwa

Mutsvangwa accused Chinamasa — who yesterday said the country’s plan to clear $1,8 billion had been accepted in arrears during the IMF/World Bank annual meeting in Lima, Peru – of acting like an IMF spokesperson.

He claimed Chinamasa actively blocked government officials, including him, from asking an IMF delegation questions, when they visited Zimbabwe recently.

“It’s very unfortunate that a Minister of the Zimbabwe government becomes a spokesperson of a multinational funding agency which has got its body in Washington and answers to its shareholders also in Washington,” Mutsvangwa told South African ANN7TV on Thursday night during its programme, Africa Tonight.

“I want to put it on record he is not their spokesperson. I think he is now appropriating a role which does not belong to him and he should stop it. When IMF officials visited Zimbabwe Chinamasa was blocking government officials and diplomats including myself from asking the IMF officials questions, and instead he was jumping around to answer for IMF.”

Chinamasa has been actively engaging the IMF seeking Zimbabwe’s debt relief, while also pleading for loosening of purse strings from the multi-national finance lending institution to extricate Zimbabwe from the economic morass.

Mutsvangwa recently also took a dig against Chinamasa and like-minded ministers who “still think that the white man is superior” in a sign of discord in government at a time when analysts indicate policy inconsistency scared away much needed investment.

He told war veterans in Mutare recently: “They (IMF) want to remove [President] Mugabe…they want [MDC-T leader Morgan] Tsvangirai to be at the helm.We have nothing to do with IMF because their agenda is removing war veterans from influential positions in government. They want security sector reform and they want Tsvangirai to be at the helm of the government.”

Both Mutsvangwa and Chinamasa were linked to a faction loyal to vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa who is considered the front runner in the race to succeed 91-year-old President Robert Mugabe.

  1. This guy is itching to be the Minister of finance himself.himself.he is deranged fighting his own personal battles at the expense of the well being of the general populace.what a shame

    • that is the major reason why he was given the war veterans ministry which is fully local. he will not interact with critical foreign institutions and dignitaries much needed to take us from this economic morass. it could have been dangerous had he been minister of foreign affairs, industry and commerce, finance or even defence. manje hapana hapana. ngwena yakati zhou haimire nokuti kunekambwanana kari kuhukura, inongoenda chete kusvika maungira ati hwaaa kupera. Same same here. Team ngwena panyanga dziii, zimbabwe nake!!!!

  2. Patrick Chinamasa is a typical Zanu pf lying cheating crook.
    (a.k.a the Honeybear Lane Thug)
    He says he hates the USA yet he smuggled his children into the USA under false pretenses using his wife Monica’s maiden name,
    His son Chengeta Chinamasa died in the USA from AIDS, Herpes, Suicide and a Drug Overdose.
    This imbecile aspires to take over as the chief thug.

  3. Mutsvangwa seems not to comprehend the Cabinet Collective Responsibility doctrine. Mutsvangwa breaches this doctrine which states that a cabinet member should not publicly disagree with an executive decision . what Chinamasa is doing definitely is a Cabinet position, that is, government position. One aspect of collective responsibility is that Ministers share responsibility for major government decisions, particularly those made by the Cabinet and even if they personally object to such decisions, ministers must be prepared to accept and defend them or resign from the Cabinet.

  4. This Mutsvangwa man is against everyone. Last time he attacked the foreign affairs minister Mumbengegwi. The other time he attacked Kasukuwere.

    • “A heap of vanities’ are words that have been used to describe this Mutsvangwa guy..first, he attacked Mrs Mujuru, then his former boss Mumbengegwi…now he attacks a cabinet colleague. Is he saying he is the ONLY GUY who has the right answers? And why go public when you sit with the same Chinamasa colleague in the same cabinet? Is he suggesting there is no longer any cabinet in the land and he has appropriated its authority?

  5. A grenade must have exploded close to Mutsvangwas head during the war & caused him some brain damage which afflicts him to this very day

  6. Oh cry my beloved Zimbabwe…. where can we heard to given the calibre of people like Mutsvangwa. This man seems to not understand what sort of demise Zimbabwe is in. Yes IMF loans are conditional…which ones are not??? Chinamasa as the treasury minister wants to rescue this country out of the quagmire that it finds itself in and he understands better than this guy who is always good at complaining. For a country that has embraced market driven systems funding and blessings of the International Community are of paramount importance. Our Look East Policy failed dismally because the East was facing West…. after all we are back to the West again……

  7. mutsvangwa it is people like you who rape the country and grow fat .but you dont care
    about the norrmal person in the street who can not steel money like you goverment
    fat cats . go back to the jungle where you belong and we shall see who survives .

  8. The real Vice-President of Zimbabwe, Chris Mutsvangwa, has spoken. Chinamasa is walking on thin ice dealing with IMF which is controlled by the Americans. If ever Zimbabwe gets financial aid from IMF Chinamasa’s position as Minister will be untenable. He has a lot of explaining to do when he comes back from Lima. China will give us all the money we need why is Chinamasa going to the IMF??? He is a regime change agent. I am thoroughly enjoying this fracas.

  9. People who hinder progress should be removed from public office. This country will remain or even slide further into a quandary if these people are kept in office.

  11. Nezuro he was accusing the G40 of wanting to remove Mugabe and now he is accusing Chinamasa of wanting to remove Mugabe. Doesn’t he realise that people are dying of poverty because Zimbabwe ‘s business has been killed by those who believe that those with money owe Zimbabwe anything. Why can’t we learn from Zambia?

    Mugabe is well anchored inhis position and will definitely go when the time comes. Mutsvangwa’s strength cannot be calling others names. He called Mujuru, Mutasa, Jonso and now Chinamsa names and his only reason is that they want the thrown. Hey who doesn’t want the thrown if it can legitimately be obtained?

  12. Batshele Cde. Balele stereki. It is logically out of question for the IMF to support our revolution! To fight themselves! Leave these ignorumuses like that for they do not know that they do not know. Vachaona havozve.

    Those who think Cde Mutsvangwa anorwara nepfungwa can enquire wherever and gleefully learn that he completed his secondary school at St Augustine Penhalonga in 1974 with the best Advanced level result in the country and he won a prize for that. Cde Mutsvangwa left the University of Zimbabwe in 1975 to join the liberation struggle in Mozambique. He studied Bsc Management and Information Systems (Informatics) at Boston University in the USA in 1984. He did his post graduate studies at St Johns University, New York, where he got a Masters in Public Administration in 1990. He belongs to a crop of alimni who joined the guerrilla movement of Zimbabwe and stand guard at the watchtower.

  13. Cabinet makes consesus decisions and every Minister is bound by those decisions thru collective responsibility. Why is the Chairman of the Cabinet meetings quiet and
    not ensuring that Ministers abide by these decisions? There is so much indiscipline among Zimbabwe Cabinet ministers. Things fall apart when the centre can no longer hold. U can visibly see this in Zimbabwe.

  14. Chinamasa is right keep the good work of reingagement u a doing.l am behind u for a better Zimbabwe.

  15. It was then when he aquired those qualifications. His same fat cat mentallity is overshadowing whatever rational thinking he could have had he not been in the gravy train. He want status quo to remain. Mr Mutsvangwa can do Zimbabwe a favour by using his education to build a plant which produce 2500MW of electricity then we will buy his credibility of rebuking a fellow countrymen who is trying to clear the mess.

  16. Mutsvangwa has even forgotten that his klinsman from Mutsvangwa in Chimanimani have gained nothing from the so called independent Zimbabwe. He should leave Salisbury and go home with Monica. Perhaps he will understand what is going on. A perfect Mafikizolo who has nothing to lose but take Zimbabwe to a bottomless pit. Shame on you.

  17. Mutsvangwa must go to Mutsvangwa in Chimanimani where his roots are and then tell us whether Zimbabwe has gone forward or backwards for the last 35 yrs. He should not leave Monica behind because the two idiots are taking people for a ride. We will meet in 2018.

  21. The honeymoon is over Chris. Lets get things moving now. Accountability is the hallmark of success. The time for continuous thievery is now over. Chinamasa will also bring conditions from the IMF that require everyone to account for their wealth either well or ill gotten. We all know which class you fall in Chris and you are sure as hell scared of the consequences. Buckle up
