Zimbabwe People First leader Joice Mujuru wants to make people believe that she left Zanu PF on her own accord, yet the public knows quite well that she was fired from both government and Zanu PF by President Robert Mugabe.

Actually, Mujuru wants the people to believe her side of the story surrounding her dismissal as a way of making people embrace her newly-launched political outfit. She wants to mislead the electorate into believing that she is a principled someone, who stands for the truth.
Mujuru,in trying to appear respectable, has sought to dismiss the notion that she was sacked from both government and the ruling party, Zanu PF, by choosing to tell her supporters recently that she moved out of the party of her own accord.
Mujuru said she was not dismissed by Mugabe, but decided to move out Zanu PF after realising that the barrage of attacks she received from First Lady Grace Mugabe during her meet the people tours around the country had no end in sight.
Mujuru further said her departure from the ruling party had been “inevitable”, as she was always clashing with Mugabe over policy matters up to the time she decided to leave.
Surprisingly, Mujuru, who spent the better party of her life in government, waited for the 2014 debacle to leave the party. She was always in government, but did not see any reason to leave the party until the attacks on her from Grace.
Could such a person, who values her personal interests more than those of the masses, become a good leader? What Mujuru is not aware of is that everything is in the public domain, and that her alleged policy clashes with Mugabe are fictitious because Zimbabweans never came across such allegations before her dismissal from both Zanu PF and government. If it was true that she was ever-clashing with Mugabe on policy matters, she could have shown the world by leaving the party like she is claiming that she did in 2014 after attacks from Grace.
What Zimbabweans know about Mujuru is that since 1980, she was in government holding different ministerial posts until she was appointed Vice-President of Zimbabwe in 2004, making her second-in-command in both the government and the ruling party, Zanu PF. With that influential position being in government, Mujuru got into the comfort zone of being the Vice-President to amass great wealth using State machinery.
Now that she is no longer in government she wants the public to believe her that she was regularly clashing with Mugabe on policy matters.
Is that not cheap politicking?
