Saved By Grace : How Jonathan Moyo Cried To Mugabe’s Wife

Former Higher Education Minister, Prof Jonathan Moyo has confirmed that he begged former first lady, Grace Mugabe to help him and his family when soldiers moved in.

He told The Standard :”My family and I were with Cde Kasukuwere and his family when his house came under heavy gunfire from Chiwenga’s soldiers.

During that gunfire, I got a call from Amai Dr Grace Mugabe, who knew that my family and I had joined the Kasukuweres earlier in the night and she was checking on us after receiving reports of army shootings at Dr Ignatius Chombo’s house.

When I answered the call, I told her we were under attack, asked for help to rescue the families, especially the children, who were in indescribable disbelief and shock that Chiwenga had sent soldiers to kill them.

Amai Mugabe could hear the heavy and continuous sound of gunfire as I spoke to her and she too became shocked beyond description before hanging up the call.

Some five or so minutes later, she called again and asked me how many we were in the Kasukuwere house.

I told her that Cde Kasukuwere was with his wife and three children while I was with my wife and four children making a total of 11 of us.

Amai Mugabe called again after 10 or so minutes and by this time the gunfire had gone silent and she advised that two Landcruisers, one for each family, were on their way to take us to the Blue Roof, President Mugabe’s residence, where we could leave our terrified families.

When the first Landcruiser arrived, Cde Kasukuwere put on his bulletproof vest and went outside the house and was driven to the Blue Roof.

We waited for Cde Kasukuwere to come back to advise us what was going on outside as we did not know then that he had already gone alone to the Blue Roof but when he did not return, after a little, we all started getting out of the house one by one but fearing that the soldiers were still in the vicinity.

Then the second Landcruiser arrived and the 10 of us quickly jumped in and somehow managed to fit to our great surprise and relief.

Cde Kasukuwere and I left the Blue Roof after our arrival. Getting out of there was not much of an issue, but getting out of the country took the intervention of angels.

Prof Moyo said Mnangagwa as a disaster. “Mnangagwa is an unmitigated disaster. In constitutional terms, he is no better than [Abel] Muzorewa, whose illegal regime was shortlived and is now forgotten as an obscure footnote in history and a constitutional opprobrium.

Just like Muzorewa, Mnangagwa is illegal and supported by the military because he’s unpopular with the masses and is thus unelectable yet he has an exaggerated Muzorewa-like “huruyadzo” mentality.

Mandarins in the coup government know this and that’s why they are currently bent on unprecedented asset-stripping and looting of state resources; they know that they are in an illegal regime with legs made of clay as was Muzorewa’s regime.

What is striking about this is that as it was that Muzorewa emerged just before Zimbabwe’s frst republic ushered in by the critical election in 1980, Mnangagwa has emerged just before the country’s second republic to be ushered in by the critical election in 2018.

In historical terms, this means that we should expect a Muzorewa-like personality, which Mnangagwa is, to preface a critical election and a new republic.

So, like that of Muzorewa, Mnangagwa’s reign will be shortlived and all its unconstitutional appointments and excesses will be reversed.

JM: Well, I don’t know what you mean by “during the coup”. The coup is still on as we speak.

There’s a coup government in Zimbabwe. But no, I did not hide at President Mugabe’s house in the morning of November 15, 2017 when the coup happened.

Chamisa Exposed As Bused In MDC-T Supporters Are Caught Out

THE Advocate Nelson Chamisa-led MDC Alliance, in a bid to fool the world that it commands a large following in the country, yesterday bused in thousands of supporters from as far as Chitungwiza and Harare to their “Siyanqoba” rally that was held at Bulawayo’s White City Stadium.

Rowdy MDC-T supporters barricade the road with burning tyres ahead of Advocate Nelson Chamisa’s rally at White City Stadium yesterday.

Rowdy MDC-T supporters barricade the road with burning tyres ahead of Advocate Nelson Chamisa’s rally at White City Stadium yesterday.

The rally, which was Mr Chamisa’s first ever in the country’s second largest city since he grabbed power while the party was morning its founding president Mr Morgan Tsvangirai in February, also began on an ugly note with the party’s unruly youths blocking parts of Hyde Park Road with burning tyres forcing motorists to divert and use Khami Road.

The unruly elements, who were visibly drunk, would only allow motorists going to the rally to pass through while singing songs with unprintable lyrics and continuously mocking motorists who were not interested in attending the rally. The party has previously been linked to a number of violent skirmishes with the latest being clashes between its supporters with members aligned to former MDC-T vice-president Dr Thokozani Khupe — at the party offices in Bulawayo.

Yesterday Sunday News saw more than 40 buses and commuter omnibuses from Chitungwiza, Gweru and Harare outside the venue and after the rally they were seen driving along Harare Road as they made their way back to their places of origin.

“We came here to support our president,” said a supporter inside a bus. The bus was part of 10 others from the same company which brought supporters from Chitungwiza and had a Unit N Seke address emblazoned on them.

Mr Chamisa also had to address smaller impromptu meetings around the city in a bid to convince people to attend the main rally. During the rally, Mr Chamisa attempted to ride on the legacy of the late Vice-President Dr Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo, a strategy that has been used by most opposition parties in an attempt to lure the Matabeleland vote.

He told party supporters that before coming to the rally he had earlier visited Dr Nkomo’s house in Matsheumhlophe, which has since been turned into a museum in honour of the revolutionary icon. He claimed the Nkomo family had told him that he was the first “national leader” to visit the museum ever since Dr Nkomo’s death in 1999.

“I was so touched when I went to Dr Nkomo’s Matsheumhlophe house. I was going there to see the history of this nation. However, the family told me one thing, they said ever since the death of Dr Nkomo I am the first national leader to visit the house, they even offered to give me Dr Nkomo’s traditional knobkerrie. Our late leader, Morgan Tsvangirai represented what Dr Nkomo represented, this being unity, peace, tolerance and giving oneself to the people without being selfish. That is what President Tsvangirai represented, so I am walking in the footsteps of president Tsvangirai and VP Nkomo,” said Mr Chamisa.

He further claimed that he has since ordered Bulawayo City councillors, which is dominated by councillors from his MDC-T faction to pass a resolution that will see the Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo Foundation exempted from paying rates and rentals.

“When we get into power I promise you that we will build a whole shopping mall that will be in honour of Dr Nkomo, this mall will also have museums in honour of our late Vice-President and will be dedicated to his legacy. I have also instructed Bulawayo Mayor (Martin Moyo) and his deputy (Gift Banda) to ensure that they exempt the foundation from paying rates and rentals. We will also make provisions for a social grant for the Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo Foundation once in power as a means of honouring his leadership,” said Mr Chamisa.

The Alliance leader once again reiterated his absurd promise of bringing bullet trains and “spaghetti” roads once in power.

“There are a lot of things which my government will do which some think are impossible. We want Matopo, for example to be the centre of our cultural festivities so that every year there are festivals to celebrate our culture. We will build new cities, Matopos will be elevated to a city status, its possible, some might think it’s impossible but we will prove to you all that it is possible. We will help you see reality from our perspective, they can laugh on our vision for bullet trains and spaghetti roads, but it is very possible,” said Mr Chamisa.

Mr Chamisa also took the opportunity to warn estranged former MDC-T deputy president, Dr Khupe not to mislead herself and her backers that they would use the party’s name saying they had already put in place mechanisms to block her from any attempts to do such.

Dr Khupe recently dissociated herself from the Chamisa-led faction insisting that she was the genuine acting president of the MDC-T.

“I know there are some people that have been going around claiming that they will be using the party name for their own unscrupulous agendas. I would like to state it clearly to you all that no one will be allowed to do such, we have in place all the mechanisms to prevent such hence they should just forget and find their own name,” he said.

Meanwhile, addressing the rally, MDC-T national chairperson Mr Morgan Komichi warned party members to stop allocating themselves constituencies saying that was still being discussed at alliance level.-Sundaynews

Thokozani Khupe In Car Accident

Thokozani Khupe, the leader of the breakaway MDC-T party suffered a head injury when her Isuzu twin cab truck was involved in an accident when it burst its rear tyre. The accident happened last Wednesday along the Gwanda-Bulawayo road, but there was no permanent damage. This was revealed by MDC proportional representation legislator Priscilla Musihairabwi-Mushonga at a Spiritual Solidarity Tea for Khupe in Bulawayo. Said Misihairabwi-Mushonga,

Thokozani Khupe was involved in an accident on her way here. So let’s give her time to rest. Her vehicle burst a tyre and she hit her head so it’s swollen a bit, but we thank God that she is here.

Khupe has vowed to run for president on the MDC-T ticket despite being kicked out of the party for failing to endorse the appointment of new party leader Nelson Chamisa.
