1. Ambrose is the father to Vimbai who was part of the Big Brother season (Amplified). She is also an actress and a television personality. After Big Brother, she was chosen as the new presenter for the entertainment and lifestyle show, “Star Gist” on Africa Magic Entertainment.

2. Ambrose was married to Tracy who is also a top politician. They divorced acrimoniously grabbing headlines in local media while at it.

3. According to Pindula -Mutinhiri started his political career during the days of the Second Chimurenga in the then Rhodesia. This he did through joining the Zimbabwe African People’s Union (ZAPU) and was subsequently attested into the military wing of the revolutionary movement (ZIPRA).

In fact, Mutinhiri was one of the founder members of the ZAPU party and its military wing ZIPRA. He rose through the ranks to become one of the most successful military leaders during the liberation struggle.

4.
As early as 2014 Ambrose had started to show his ambitions for the second highest post of the land. Mutinhiri, arguing why he was suitable to replace the late VP John Nkomo, said qualified for the position. Mutinhiri’s claimed he was the most senior person from former ZAPU members. His assertion became a point of discomfort in the party with some alleging that he was rewriting history and was not the most senior at the time.

5. He was once Minister of Youth Development and Employment Creation at the time when Zanu PF was pushing its training of youth militia at the Border Gezi Training centre.

6. Just last year, Ambrose was the Minister of State for Mashonaland East

  3. I WOULD LIKE TO QUESTION WHY YOU OMITTED THAT HE ABANDONED ZIPRA ,,,BECAUSE HE IS A COWARD, A SELOUT….HE DOESNT HAVE THE STAMINA TO LEAD THE COUNTRY TO ANYWHERE…A G40 POWER HUNGRY MORON, COUSIN OF MUGABE FULL OF MUGABEISM…NO MORE MUGABES FOREVER!!!!!MARK MY WORDS

  4. We cant recycle the same old people and i think whoever is in support of Mr Mutinhiri needs some psychiatric evaluation urgently

  5. He’s a retired Brigadier and so, what makes him any different from the current leaders? It’s even worse that he has the blessing of the most hated man in the land. Why shouldn’t he try farming – mapurazi edu ekutambisa vakomana imi.

    1. hated by who

  6. #MILLENIUM CREW

    1. well said!!

  7. #MILLENIUM CREW

    WE NEED MUTINHIRI TO TAKE VOTES FROM ED AND WE KICK OUT ZANU FRIM POWER

    1. excellent good idea

  8. Usatarisira chakanaka kubva kumbavha ne mhondi idzo,mazanu pf ese ngarove pasi coz zera rawo rapera tochitangawo zvedu,famba Chamisa famba

  9. I like the fact that he resigned from zanupf…thats very rare even those that were fired are still fighting to get back (Didymus Mutasa). I believe after resigning he went and addressed his constituency informing them about his decision and urging them not to follow him…man what more do you want. He is a citizen with every right to a political path of his choice. I hope his next address is about exposing all the dirt shenanigans that zanupf was/is upto.

  10. Wasting our time hey

  11. haha taking votes from ED? That’s day dreaming hahaha… VACHACHEMA VAONA 0 VOTES bwahahaha

  12. mutinhiri has my vote.ED is a failure,lier,propagandist and the most wealthiest and corrupt zimbo,from DRC to kwekwe to marange.

    Chamisa is a karanga lacoste stooge,busy destroying mdc

    1. ko Chamisa apinda papi, be factual not just insulting people on tribal grounds

    2. you urgently need psychiatric evaluation trevor

  13. Mutinhiri you are being used by Mugabe, the latter opted for Mphoko ahead of you to replace John Landa Nkomo as VP when you were itching to be in the 2nd biggest position on the land. The obvious reason is that you did not deserve to rule, now that there is a militarized government then all of a sudden the Mugabes endorse you. The just want you to neutralise the military effect so that they can get a point over ED and Chiwenga. Valerio Sibanda who currently heads the military is an ex-Zipra so the G40 mechanisation think that you are better placed to cause divisions. Think think think think Mutinhiri. If Bob really likes you he wud not hev promoted Mphoko ahead of you.

    1. YOU ARE A GENIUS FOOL

  14. Its just good for Mugabe to form a new party so that he can expose all the rigging done by the military backed ZANU PF. Why are these bloodthirsty ZANU cowards now panicking .

  15. Zanu pf and its supporters are all murderous.

  16. It’s not about panicking .Zpf doesn’t want to vilify Mugabe.They want him to rest peacefully. He must pray that Chamisa wins because Mnangagwa is not going to protect a sellout.The old man will be exposed.This protection will be lose new

  17. Ever since i was notified of how evil these people are, i will not vote zanu pf again.
    The next time they kill your loved once you will not say anything good about zanu pf
