MDC-T leader, Morgan Tsvangirai yesterday hit back at Local Government minister Saviour Kasukuwere, describing him as a “small boy”, who neither has the capacity nor mandate to comment on his occupation of the government-owned Highlands mansion.

Kasukuwere, at the weekend, told Zanu PF supporters in Mutare that Tsvangirai could not challenge the Zanu PF-led government because he was a lodger in a State-owned house.

He said Tsvangirai was surviving on Zanu PF patronage.

But reacting to Kasukuwere’s utterances, Tsvangirai’s spokesperson, Luke Tamborinyoka said his boss’ stay in the mansion was based on a contract with government, which the Local Government minister had no understanding of.

“Kasukuwere is a small boy. He is just being big-headed,” Tamborinyoka said.

“He does not know anything about this house. He cannot comment about it. He has no mandate and capacity to speak about the house. There is a contract with government regarding the occupation of this house.”

Tsvangirai moved into the Highlands mansion during his tenure as prime minister in the unity government between the two MDCs and President Robert Mugabe’s Zanu PF following disputed elections in 2008.

“Kasukuwere is just an over excited member of G40. The issue of the house is beyond his scope and capacity,” Tamborinyoka continued.

He said one of the conditions of the contract was the right to buy the house as the current tenant if government wished to dispose of it.

“The house has not even been valued. Tsvangirai has even used his money, about half a million dollars, to renovate the house and he has not been paid back the money,” Tamborinyoka said.

Tsvangirai, who handed Mugabe’s first official electoral defeat since independence in 1980, faces criticism that he is compromised in his fight against the 92-year-old leader because of his continued stay in the government house.

      • I don’t know any average “Zimbos” having $500,000. How does a civil servant accumulate $500,000? We all know what teachers and doctors earned at that time so even if the then Prime Minister was earning 10 times the amount of a govt doctor it would still make it hard to explain how the former PM accumulated half a million US$ in such a short period. Maybe Chipoto can explain this mathematically?

  1. $500,000 is not even enough to pay for just a toilet of the mansion that Kasukwere is building for himself, what cruel & selfish people we have in zanupf

  2. u can justify it but Tsvangirai remains a lodger because it is gvt house, he is just like a person staying in gvt flats

  3. tyson judgement day is coming soon, you one of the thieves i will personally ensure that you rot in prison, you enjoying riches whilst people are suffering…

    Watch the space for the incoming zimbabwean president……….His Excellency

  4. kasukuwere unopenga mari yekuvaka mansion wakaiwanepi.nxa to try to remove logs in others eyes when you have plenty yourself.come 2018 you will rot in jail.mbavha yemunhu looters.

  5. You mean to tell me that people are so dwarfed that they cannot even differentiate between the government and zanu pf?
    Vanhu ve zanu makutopenga.

  6. Its so easy to be pissed off but the fact is Tsvangson is staying in a Zanu PF Government house and that Government has right to kick him out as a tenant should it so desire. Luke gets excited everytime he has to say something for his supper its understandable. Save nyarai mungoti ndaenda Strathaven kwangu sarai nemusha wenyu . Kasukuwere is Local Government Minister of a Zanu PF Government so ndoo department rake iroro amongst others. Zvimwe zvinoda nyadzi if you want to be taken seriously siyana nezvinhu zveZanu ka nhai Save naLuke Masawara.

    • Zanu Pf government should then refund him his money or honor the contract they have with him. Sell him the house as per the initial agreement. Mugabe is also a lodger at State house. Its a government property.

  7. vanakasukuwere mainyepera tuchembere twakare manje iyezvino munhu were akuzivakuti izvi zvauya na donner izvi ndezve government iyo zanhu munechii kunze kwezvamakaba.

  8. May God bless president Tsvangirai. The one and only local brave politician who cause sleepless nights to the opponents.
    He grew in a well to do family and thats why he is not greedy of earthly possessions.
    Only those who grew up in poverty grabs everything from farms, mines, companies etc.

  12. hazvina kana basa chero iwe if yu are brave enough unogona kungonogara mu State house , dzimba dzenyika hadzisi dzeparty,

  13. This is truly Politics of Poverty! Where in the world will you find a leader of the opposition being provided free housing by the government? This means Tswangirayi is on welfare, he is destitute. No self-respecting man or woman would go this low. If he has half a million dollars why didn’t he buy or build himself a house? This speaks volumes of Tswangirayi’s mental state. Or sense of integrity. A shameless big man mentality for someone who says he represents the downtrodden!

  14. It’s very unfair to ask where Kasukuwere got his monet. He started by giving the owner of Commercial Transport access to his backside for sexual pleasure and was handed a running concern for free. He is very enterprising
