‘Don’t listen to Mugabe hallucinations’

ZANU PF will not waste time listening to former President Robert Mugabe’s rantings because he belonged to the past, a ruling party’s youth league member has said.
Responding to questions from journalists, politburo deputy secretary for youth affairs Lewis Matutu said Mugabe failed Zanu PF and the country, adding his removal had been long overdue.

“It’s a waste of time to talk about Mugabe. He is old and at 94 nobody will listen to his hallucinations,” Matutu said.

Mugabe has reportedly promised to support new opposition party the National Patriotic Front (NPF) formed by aggrieved former Zanu PF stalwarts linked to a former faction of the ruling party known as G40.

Other leading politicians in the new party were interim leader Ambrose Mutinhiri and Mugabe’s nephew Patrick Zhuwao and former Higher Education minister Jonathan Moyo were also linked with the party.

Mugabe was forced to resign in November last year after years of Zanu PF internal strife and power struggles that threatened to tip the country over.

A military intervention paved the way for Emmerson Mnangagwa to take charge of the party and country with an angry Mugabe who initially accepted the military’s role as legal now arguing he was unconstitutionally removed through a coup.

Matutu said Zanu PF will not care who Mugabe chose to associate with.

“We will not be worried even if Mugabe were to associate himself with the MDC-T, we will not waste our time with him. In the early years of independence, he did some good things, but lost his way after marrying a young wife who was controlling him,” the youth league deputy secretary said.

Zanu PF youth league secretary for administration, Tendai Chirau said Mugabe belonged to the past.

“Mugabe is the past and Cde Mnangagwa is the future. Zanu PF is and was not a family pet project owned by Mugabe. It is a people’s project that is moving forward. People will come and go but the party will remain,” he said.


Asked what Mnangagwa (75) has in store for the youths, Matutu said young people owed the new Zanu PF leader a debt of gratitude because he masterminded Mugabe’s removal.
“Every Zimbabwean was fed up with Mugabe and Mnangagwa was the one who removed the old leader. Youths owe him their vote, if not for anything, then for that alone. The independence we will be celebrating this week is two-fold, freedom from colonial rule and from Mugabe.

“Mnangagwa has the future of the youths at heart and has humbled himself to return the country to the table of nations where it belongs rather than shouting at everyone,” Matutu said.

Mugabe turned Zimbabwe into an international pariah after adopting controversial policies that brought a once thriving economy to its knees.

  9. The same people who forced a 93 year old despot on us are at it again…Forcing a 76 year old ancestor on us ..The same people who ignore the dying masses in hospitals today…They dont care about doctors and nurses going on strike but will rather buy expensive vehicles for campaign,DA and useless chiefs..No …Zanupf is still the same devil, Mugabe or no mugabe…only idiots will vote for the part that brought us this untold suffering .I wont vote for a part that still has Obert Mpofu,Super Mandiwanzira,Chinamasa and all those corrupt people in its ranks

  10. These flyby night political minnows should stop trying to get political mileage by denigrating the former President. What does that benefit ZANU PF, If at all they are killing ZANU PF from within. You cant talk about ZANU PF without mentioning Mugabe, these idiots should desist from disrespecting the old man.

  11. Chamisa has no capacity to run this country,he has demonstrated it during his rallies by proffering unhinged & outlandish solutions for this economy.The first port of call for n politician who serious this abt this country is acquaint oneself with or take appreciation of status quo & then make practical projections of how to move out of there-resuscitating the fallen industrial base first for jobs,roads,hospital delivery,appreciating the difficult likely to b involved-already incurred foreign debts,the cunning global capital-to deal with its possible effects.Not to lie that will simply to do it bec he wants to go zimbabwe hse.we know the difficulties involved

    1. So you guys makaudzwa kuti the best are blair toilets handiti!

    1. And who has that capacity, the same people who closed this country to business? get a brain.

  13. Chamisa has no capacity to lead this country,he has demonstrated it during his rallies

  14. Stop fooling us around Maturity. Mnangagwa and Mugabe are two sides of the same coin. Although we differ in principle with Chamisa following his recent unprocedural elevation in the MDC-T presidential candidature, he is the man holding the future of Zimbabwe. What future can we expect through recycling the same dead wood? Moreover, no remedy can be achieved from the authors of the same problems bedevilling the nation for decades.

  15. Chamisa’s time is not now. He may be the future but only in the future

  16. Chamisa is good for us don’t listen to thieves being send by Ed to disturb

  17. This Moyo guy is a national problem. He is always at the centre of disunity. One day he is with the opposition denigrating Rgm, the next he is with Rgm denigrating the opposition, then the following day he is with ED and the day after he is on ED’s throat; after that he is in ghe opposition denigrating ED

  18. vANA MATUTU stop shouting at Heroes .you were not there in a war. Let the big fish talk. zvawava kuita ndizvo zvaiita uye youth leage wokunyura paye wokutuka vakuru ve ARMY

  19. kutaura kwamusina kuswera maitiro enyu aya chinja

  20. HAUTIUDZE WEKUTEERERA IWE ,

  21. Matebele Warrior- Chamisa is our leader

    i feel pity for this Matutu guy , only in November he was singing all sorts of praise songs for Mugabe , now he is saying something else.You have shown that you are nothing but a fly which cannot overcome oppossing winds

    1. ED ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

      Pambili naED. ED chete chete.

  22. Luke Munya Bikaldo

    Here goes another warped minded goon who is trying to outdo his predecessor Kudzai “squinted eye”Chipanga by hurling insults at elders.Look at where it landed him.All of a sudden he has vanished into thin air.I used to warn him on this same platform but like a headless chicken he continued on his warpath to harrass and insult many people at will with impunity but the day of reckoning finally came.So this stupid boy called Lewis Matutu should take heed or else be prepared to face the consequences that comes with a loose mouth.I for one do not have sympathy for the squinted eyed Chipanga.Actually i would had been very happy to see him behind bars.

  23. Such utterances shows how shallow ones brains are why does this silly youths learn from other stupid youths who walked down this road. Our culture has taught us that we should not assault our elders and we should always respect them. Matutu is stupid and he must apologise like what chipanga did. ZANU pf must teach these young people to stay away from insulting elders and rather let the elders sort there issues on there own. Matutu is trying to tarnish H.E President E D’s name stop it.
