Mujuru gets PF ball rolling

FORMER Vice-President Joice Mujuru has reportedly approved a proposed People First (PF) project constitution, setting in motion plans to launch the party, which has been on the cards for several months now.

RICHARD CHIDZA

NewsDay is reliably informed Mujuru appended her signature as leader of the new opposition party last Tuesday, paving way for a massive recruitment exercise, whose epicentre, sources said, was the Zanu PF political hotbed of Mashonaland East province.

JOICE-MUJURU-2

PF spokesperson Rugare Gumbo confirmed that the document was with Mujuru, although he was unsure whether she had signed it.

“I am not sure about signing. As far as I know, it has not been signed, but we have generally agreed that it is a good document. We are still consulting with our sympathisers and supporters,” he said. “We need them to give input before the final document, but so far we are happy with what we have.”

It is expected that the party’s constitution will be founded on Blueprint to Unlock Investment and Leverage for Development (Build), a policy document Mujuru publicised about two months ago.

Mujuru has for several months kept people guessing on her next political move, making subtle hints she was on the verge of forming a party, although she has been publicly coy.

On Tuesday, she issued a statement berating President Robert Mugabe for continuously accusing her of plotting to kill him, yet he was yet to present evidence to back his claims.

In forming her party, Mujuru has the support of Gumbo, former Zanu PF secretary for administration Didymus Mutasa and former ministers Dzikamai Mavhaire and Kudakwashe Bhasikiti.
They are among a number of several Zanu PF members who were axed from the party on allegations of plotting to oust Mugabe and fanning factionalism.

Sources claim PF has undertaken an intensive recruitment drive across the country’s provinces, targeting disgruntled Zanu PF and MDC-T activists in the process.

“They are on a massive recruitment drive and are attracting former MDC-T and Zanu PF activists, who have been dumped or are disillusioned. Zanu PF is aware of this and that is why you have (First Lady) Grace (Mugabe) panicking,” an insider said.

Last week, Grace called on Zanu PF youths to be vigilant and watch former Marondera Central MP Ray Kaukonde’s activities in Mashonaland East closely.

She claimed the former Zanu PF provincial chairman and Gumbo were giving youths, some as young as 15 years old, cash to be part of their project ahead of the 2018 elections.
Gumbo said Grace’s accusations should be dismissed with the contempt they deserved.

“We are no longer members of Zanu PF, why should she be worried about how we conduct ourselves?” he asked.

“We are organising and getting ideas from people. We believe that any transformation will have to come from the people.

“We do not believe in the Zanu PF thinking of one centre of power. It is a feudalistic, primitive and monarchical understanding that does not have a place in modern societies.”

  1. Here in Mash Central we received Tshirts of people 1st ane face yamai Mujuru munzvimbo dzinoti Chimhanda,Msana,Madziwa,Masemburah,Mt Darwin,Dotito and Muzarabanhi.May que iri pavanhu vari kuita distribute the tshirts,3 white guys.Is this not a white political party just like MDC?Here in Mash Central we luv mai Mujuru but kana vane varingu a big NO

      • Whats wrong with white people if they are as Zimbabwean as you are? It is that kind of mentality that has destroyed our everything.
        Apa wakasunga tie, une US dollar muhomwe, unodya pie and you are dying to get a UK visa, is there anything Zimbabwean about this, IDIOT!!!
        hee varungu….hee varungu

    • Here in Mash Central we received Tshirts … You received the tshirts and now want to come on this forum uchitaura zvevarungu zvekupenga kwako. Wani Zanu PF ine maChinese wakambonzwa ani akavaramba. Taura zvimwe People First project is no longer stoppable!

    • My friend are you saying post congress ZanuPF has no whites in its structures? What you are saying exposes you as a member of ZanuPF. Your utterance is an insult to Joshua Sacco of Chimanimani.Dr Timothy Stamps. Baba VaGeorge in Mashonaland West just to mention a few. Are Chinese given farms just some 30km from Harare black people, are they not white people?

      It is not a crime to be white because we have blacks including Zimbabweans all over the world. You should fight against racism not the skin of a person. We encourage political parties to be very inclusive in their recruitment of members.

    • pane asiri kurarama nezvinhu zvevarungu here. even the First family chirungu choga choga apa tiri kutoshoshoma mazwi nokuti pasi nemabhunu,hapana kwatinosvika tisina varungu ava. vamwe vanovavenga masikati usiku vanodyidzana navo. MaChina havasi vachena here. We are destroying our national wealth nekupa maChina.

      • Taura hako Majestha. Grace anembiri yekuda zvechirungu. She broke shopping records makore aye paHarods mu London. Vanhu vonoti pasi nevarungu are the worst hypocrites.

    • As long as the white people are Zimbabwean, it is their constitutional right to participate in politics if they so choose. It is this kind of backward thinking that has resulted in Zimbabwe regressing while other countries are moving forward.

      How is the MDC a white political party? The last time I checked it was a Zimbabwean party formed in 1999 whose membership included people of all racial and ethnic groups. Zanu p.f. does have white members such as Billy Rautenbach who has even being given permission to displace villagers in parts of Manicaland to set up his ethanol plant. You need to wake up Bindura.

  2. Here in UMP we used to vote Zanu pf zvine mutsindo coz of Rex Nhongo and his wife Joice.Joice is more popular than Robert in Mash east.All these yrs taishay zvairevei tsvangirai paaitaura nezve change.No votes fo Zanu pf here again in Mash east.We are fully behind joice

  7. Munamato wangu Mwari Baba ndewekutoti musakasike kutora Robert awone Joice Teurairopa Mujuru achitonga nyika ino. Pamberi ne People First. This makes an early Christmas present for Zimbabweans.

  8. It is quite unfortunate that Zimbabwean people have been taught to be racist by ZANU pf. Are you saying that being white makes someone less Zimbabwean than a black person? This issue really needs to be addressed, people must understand and embrace our new constitution. Let us move away from racist utterances and be more objective in how we conduct ourselves.

  9. To Bindura I say….go back to Zanu PF where there re few white people who you dont even know like Hoogstraten.We want a party which will recover Zim from the dustbin, whether white or black.Look how much time has been lost whilst we listen to No Whites rhetoric of Zanu PF.Are the whites the ones who make David Pagwesese Parirenyatwa steal $77K from PSMAS and go scot free?Ah iwe Bindura wakuzondibhowa manje

    After being dumped and cheated by many spell casters , I lost the trust and the hope to get my husband back, it was this when I found MAMA the woman of miracles,she was so professional, calm and like a prophet. Her words were like words from heaven, whatever she told me after listening to my problem was exactly how it happened, she cast a love spell to bring back my husband, and it worked like a miracle in less than a week.she read my fortune accurately and told me about my past life,my marriage and business and in a POT OF HOLY WATER & A MIRROR she showed me the faces of my enemies.She performed a special prayer and gave me holy water to bath for only three days.Mama i came to agree that what you did was the righteous way for justice in love and that you are the best trustworthy spell caster.The HOLY OIL you also gave my husband made him be promoted at work and OUR BUSINESS IS ALSO BOOMING.Mama thank u very much and i promise to always carry your FLAG.

  16. just a poor out fit. i liked the phrase in the other zpf story “old maps can not discover new lands” i rather think its a tale of a rabid fox in a monkey outfit. 2018 will show the fools that we are tired of anything PF. sorry joice why can’t you try farming? inga munda takakupa pabeatrice.

  17. What people want in a gvt without corruption siyanayi ne nyaya ye maWHITES brain washed what we need is good gvt polices.

  18. Tipeiwo email ye People First so that here in the Diaspora we join and contribute materials asap as you require them.

  19. In UMP the strong hold of Zanu pf,mai Mujuru is the talk of these constituency.I used to love Zanu pf but bekudzingwa kwaJoice Mujuru naKaukonde handichaida.We supported Zanu coz of Solomon Mujuru and mai mujuru.Zanu haiwane navotes edu futi.Takapanduka.Tovhotera mai mujuru.pasi nezanu.vakatibhowa kudzinga vanhu vedu.nxaaaa

  20. wht surprises me most is that thoz pple vakadzingwa vachinzi gamatox,ndivo vaitibatsira here in Mash east the likes of Kaukonde and mai Olivia Muchena.Kaukonde used to stand with poor villagers to access fertiliser at affordable prices.Olivia Muchena in Mtoko,helped women to set up projects.Iiii Mash east yese is angry neZanu pf.No votes to Zanu.i would rather vote fo Tsvangirai than zanu pf.Toida people first yacho

  21. MaTshirts takapiwa yes but tiri kutya kumapfeka.In my area,Masembura in Mash central(Bindura South) sabhuku ndivo vaitogova but haana kukwana munhu wese.After 4 dys,our village head akanga akunzi mutengesi nevarume 5 vane masuits e black nemashades.Sabhuku went to report kupolice.Hakuzi kwedu chete but Mash central vanhu vakawanda vava nawo matshirts kungoti ari kutyisa kupfeka

  22. My thinking in all this is that ngwena used Grace to discredit Joice, much the same way as America invaded Iraq alleging weapons of mass destruction, yet it was a plot to unseat the govt of Saddam Hussein. Our president, i believe, was made to believe kuti Joice was now a mutengesi, but truth is that she had strong chances of filling the president’s shoes if he left the presidium. But that decision was wrong, Joice is very much loved by people, she is very calm, humble & most of all did not hurt any people, directly or indirectly, what they call motherly love. Even her husband was like that, the ever smiling chap, God bless his soul. God should never have separated the two.

  24. Kana ndichiti siyanayi ne WHITES I mean we need people who can deliver regardless of race and map the way forward in a corrupt free nation,Real born again people to in the positions of top leadership.

  25. So does changing from one house to another konzi kupanduka. So what’s the fuss abt whites aint they zimbabweans. Just look at southa africa with multi races. humbimbindoga ndoowaita tizviuraire nyika yainakidza kugara. I will vote mujuru ndakatsinzina and that’s a fact. Avo vanozviti ana bindura avo ibrain wash yakazara yoga yoga isu ma orignal bindura tiri ziiiii. Come 2018

  26. What perception is held by Zimbabweans (and Zanu PF to be precise), about the whites? Unless you drop this racism and accommodate everybody, you will never go far. Those in power have demonized the whites and the West. Some of these ideological feedings concerning the Whites/West are laughable to say the least. I am not concerned about their (whites) participation in PF politics only that African countries are where they are economically due to western aid. All other ideologies are purely divide and rule tactics to retain selfseekers in power.

  27. When i noticed that the PF tshirts aigoverwa nevarungu,ndakabva ndashaya hanya namai Mujuru.The reason why Morgan Tsvangirai is failing to win any Parliamentary seat is becoz he is eating and drinking with oppressors.Was so sympathetic to Joice Mujuru.She must not include vadzvanyiriri.We told Kaukonde not to play around with those pple if the Pf vachida our votes here in Mash east

    • Is Mugabe white? You are still stuck in the days of stone age. Blacks are not more Zimbabweans than whites in the modern age. Mugabe and his cabinet are the oppressors. Please don’t comment if you do not have something useful

  28. Ini zvangu ndoti Mai Mujuru maita zvenyu . kwete kudheererwa nanaGrace vasina kurwa hondo . We have been itching for alternative C after ZANU and MDC now ikete. Come for a dinner with us also kuDiaspora . We are fully behind you since tonode kudzoka kumba maakutonga

  29. mai mujuru is repeating what tsvangirai is doing.Yu can not have rural vote if yu have vachena vakawanda muparty.Former commercial farmer David Buttler who is nw based in Zambia is the one who is sponsoring the tshirts.May sum1 tell mujuru kusiyana nevarungu.Goche,Butawu,Gumbo and nyati takavaudza last time pavakauya kuno.Yes tovada mai mujuru but dwn nevarungu

    • Ko MaChina aripapi in this discussion. The Cjinese are the worst racists. They are the worst business partners because they are selfish. I can go on for ever. So what we need is a genuine person be they white or brown or blue.

  30. I hear there are 3 Karangas (Mavhaire, Bhasikiti and Gumbo. Watch this space what they will get in this PF. Makaranga makata chiazvo. Kushandiswa chete!

  31. Iye zvino yakawana nguva guys,hapana nguva isinga svike,handei kuna Amai munhu wese kuna Amai,ndoreva Amai Mujuru.Ava ndivo Amai venyika.

  32. Was this mai Mujuru not part of the zanu pf oppression system? She had to be chased away from zanu pf. She is zanu pf. She loves zanu pf and its leader. She was on the forefront from 1980 and she made shure that the economy is dead. What new thing is she trying to bring? She masterminded the short sleeve and long sleeve barbarism of 2008. How will people vote for her given that she amputated them? Well people have their constitutional right to vote for whoever they like.

  33. Fellow Zimbos, in our resentment of ZanuPf over its plundering of our once beautiful country, let’s not lose sight of the fact that this new-born PF outfit is an offshoot of the old ZanuPf and is led by individuals who yesterday were the chief architects of our present misery. Let’s not be blinded and deceived by their anti-Mugabe rhetoric ; let’s not be fooled into believing that the same men and women who presided over this apocalypse that we find ourselves in can suddenly become our saviours. Thieves they have been, and thieves they will remain. If a man like Ngosana Moyo comes back today and tells us I’m offering you Zimbos a new way of doing things, who would not believe him? Nobody because he left ZanuPf when he felt that his vision as a public servant was totally out of sync with that of the ZanuPf political aristocracy of which people like Rugare Gumbo, Didymus Mutasa and Teurai Ropa were part of. They only left ZanuPf because they were booted out. They can neither build nor put the people first. Fellow countrymen, what we need today is a new way of doing politics, governance, business. I don’t see PF changing anything.

  34. Black people needed another 900 years before they could be allowed to govern. Blacks just do not understand what statecraft is. The next black government after Mugabe will definitely be better than Mugabe but will never equal or better what white governments did. Blacks were a BILLION times better off under white governments. Do not be misled by black nationalists about oppression – they do not know he difference between poverty and oppression. In Rhodesia if one was clever the sky was the limit. How can you replace PK van der Byl with Reserve-born Joice Mujuru for example? That, to me, is regression. What does Joice bring to the table? Pungwe.

    • @Musona you are the only black person who requires 900years. To be honest Musona you write junk and I have even generated interest in your irrelevent points, you must have been a garden boy at a whiteman’s house where your mind was taught that blacks are inferior than whites. White or Black we are all the same and one, what is important is working together and be part of the global village. There are many capable blacks who can lead Zimbabwe to prosperity but that does not mean we should not work together with whites because they are also Zimbabweans who brings in valuable ideas just like we do. Diversity is what is important, you must not think as if you are in a vacuum, think out of the box.

  35. Vakuru -marasika -Mbeki-arikudya nema whites- magroceries amurikutenga from South Africa arikugadzirwa ne ma whites.better whites if they can bring employment than a hip of empty promises,2 million jobs ndodzamurikuona pama pavements e Harare.Town yese yakunhuwa ma sau , vana vanhehoreka vatambura.Baba Chatunga vane ma whites hobho matsotsi ,asi hauzive come to town.

  36. Probably, the biggest individual financial supporter of Zanu PF is a white guy who has financial interests in the Lowveld, in tourism, mining etc. Its as if whites are only good as long as they support ZN .PF? What double standards?

  37. bindura open up your eyes ciois behind this coz they know people will support mujuru. Those whites belong to zanu pf,and was send by secret service so that they will intimidate people that its a british sponsored party. Thats politics my bra. Distribution of tshirts will be done by pf members.

  38. bindura,weather you are a cio agent,zanupf beneficiary or wat,we hurt zanupf for its wrong reasons.we also hurt its suportes too,nembwa dzavo kana katsi dzavo.varungu ndovaneyese ,kuzvida kana kusazvida ndovanhu vacho.wakanyanya kugarikaseiko muzimbabwe muno.we are introuble&we need plan b nevaridzivemari not that rubbish u are talking of.that woman was a pilar in your party no wonder why zanu is shaking eversince u chased her away.wake up if u a true to be one of us.

  41. I wonder kuti Baba Chatunga vanoverengawo here macomments edu kkkk. We need Change in Zimbabwe, the people who can only bring the change needed mu zimbabwe are seasoned politicians like David Coltart and youths like Chamisa and business minded people like Strive Masiyiwa , Nigel Chanakira,Itai Dzamara,Jessy Majome,Walter Muzembi,Simba Makoni,Welshman Ncube,Dr Chimedza,Beatrice Mutetwa,Magaya Makandiwa(as spiritual advisors) Priscilla Mishihairambwi,Pedzisayi Ruhanya,Ibbo Mandaza,Alex Magaisa, Tito Mboweni wamwe vese matakanana ega ega.

  42. uuumm.you guys varikungoti varungu varungu ibvai pano,you & ur old man destroyed ths once beautiful nation wth tht same attitude.so the question here is,are all Zimbabweans supposed to be black what kind of a nation will tht be?look at SA the raimbow nation,they build wht they hv today together irregardless of race,tribe or even skin color.so who are u to judge.by th way mst of u lie bout being patriotic,why steal & destroy ur own country if u’r patriotic..patriotism is about selflessness,look at USA thy wage war against other nations (thou its nt a gud thing bt thts their strategy in terms of international relations,& it works for thm) for th benefit of their citizens i.e looting resources bck to their country in th process why cant u zimbabweans hv tht kind of mindset towards ur own country

  43. Joice is simply the Best!! Zanu Pf yaivoterwa because people loved her. Pamberii Ne People First. Pasii nechembere dzisisina nesimba rekefamba rose asi dzinofunga ut dzichiri ma 19yr
