Wadyajena mocks G40 ministers

Gokwe-Nembudziya MP Justice Mayor Wadyajena has mocked Zanu PF party officials accused of fighting Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s ascendancy to the Presidency, saying they had gone back to school after failing in their bid.


Wadyajena, a known Mnangagwa ally, took to micro-blogging site Twitter to chide those opposed to Mnangagwa’s rise to “go back to school and understand the party policy”.

“If you want to fight Gushungo (President Robert Mugabe) and ED (Emmerson Mnangagwa), you have to go back to school, after school, you will begin to understand the party’s ideology,” the firebrand legislator said.

Although he did not mention anyone by name, the statement was in obvious reference to Higher Education minister Jonathan Moyo, Local Government minister Saviour Kasukuwere and Youth and Indigenisation minister Patrick Zhuwao, who have enrolled for law classes at the University of Zimbabwe.


The three are said to be the frontmen of Generation 40 (G40), a Zanu PF faction linked to First Lady Grace Mugabe and accused of working to sabotage Mnangagwa’s bid to succeed Mugabe.

Last week, one of Mnangagwa’s self-proclaimed allies, Energy Mutodi, who is studying the same course with the trio, said their enrolment for the degree showed “serious intentions” to succeed Mugabe.

Posting on his Facebook page, Mutodi claimed that the group could be preparing itself for greater ambitions and needed to improve their education.

Ironically, Moyo is a political science professor, while Kasukuwere and Zhuwao hold master’s degrees in international relations and business management, respectively.

“It is the boiling succession issue in the country and in Zanu PF that has raised eyebrows particularly on the personal vision of these senior citizens. Could they be feeling less qualified for their ambitions?

“Have they concluded that they are far disadvantaged to land the Presidency compared to their competitors such as Patrick Chinamasa, Mnangagwa, Paul Mangwana, Welshman Ncube, Tendai Biti and Godwills Masimirembwa just to mention a few, who are lawyers and active politicians?” Mutodi posted. Also studying law is Information and Communication Technology minister Supa Mandiwanzira, Lands minister Douglas Mombeshora and former Regional Integration and International Co-operation minister Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga.

    Who says to be a lawyer shows one is fit for being a Head of state. For your own information law is a cheap subject compared to engineering and medicine. Law is like Drama, period.
