Joice Mujuru tormentors spill the beans

ZANU PF youth league members that were instrumental in the purge that targeted former vice-president Joice Mujuru have apologised for their role, saying they have since realised that they were used as pawns.

BY OBEY MANAYITI

The youth leaders featured prominently at First Lady Grace Mugabe’s nationwide rallies, which she used to demand Mujuru’s resignation.

Grace accused Mujuru of corruption, incompetence and witchcraft, as well as plotting to kill President Robert Mugabe.

The First Lady is yet to produce any evidence to back the claims a year after Mujuru was fired from both Zanu PF and the government.

The seven Zanu PF provincial youth chairpersons who were recently fired for attacking Mugabe and Grace, said they were being victimised for refusing to back a similar campaign against Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa .

Three of them — Harare’s Godwin Gomwe, Vengai Musengi from Mashonaland West and Godfrey Tsenengamu of Mashonaland Central — told The Standard on Friday that they regretted their role in the Mujuru debacle.

“We didn’t know that if they want to tarnish the image of a person, they create falsehoods like what happened to Mujuru who was accused of demanding 10% from corporates and that she was consulting witchdoctors, all without evidence and we later concluded that all those were lies,” Musengi said.
“We want to apologise to her that we were used out of ignorance.”

Gomwe said the seven would mobilise and tell the people about all the allegations against Mujuru and made people believe them.

“Our role was to mobilise on the ground using that information, which we were given by [names supplied] concerning Mujuru,” he said.

“We later discovered that it was false just like what is happening to Mnangagwa right now.”
Musengi said the Zanu PF G40 faction which is fighting to stop Mnangagwa from succeeding Mugabe, was started in Mugabe’s own house through Grace.

Gomwe said those who did not support G40 were being hounded out of Zanu PF.

“We were expelled as seven provincial youth chairpersons because towards end of year last year, we were not attending the First Lady’s tours because we realised the hate speeches at Grace’s rallies were not doing any good to the party,” he said.

Mujuru has challenged Mugabe to prove the allegations he made against her in court.

    Certainly, this is an eye opener,to those who have eyes to see, and those who have ears to hear.The lesson to be leant is that, youths should not allow themselves to be used as couriers of lies and merchants of hatred and murder.These are not attributes of people who aspire to have a long and illustrious political career.It’s quite in order for these young people to apologise, but it would take time for them to be regarded as up right citizens of the country.Those still there be warned that you are future victims and should tread cautiously on this political terrain which is pregnant with dangerous land mines.Watch out Chipanga,you are sitting on a steep political cliff,you are always in the press for the best wrong reasons altogether.

    the reason why Zimbabwe is this situation is because an average Zimbabwean doesn’t want the truth. below are some of the truths that people routinely circumvent:
    1. rwavhi gukurahundi Mugabe committed genocide in Zimbabwe mainly the gukurahundi atrocities of the 1980s. this is the reason why he doesn’t want to vacate the throne because he knows that he will be arrested. this has nothing to do with his marriage to grace is this come well after he had committed the crimes.
    2. grace is a useless slut who left her marriage to get married to rwavhi because of pecuniary gains.
    3. joice mujuru was the main driver of corruption in zanu with her late hubby rex. she owns a number of farms, mine and buildings around the country. she has no positive contribution to make to the country given her horrendous performance in govt for the past 35 years. she is a liar who wants us to believe that she always had differences with Mugabe yet she begged him to stay on the eve of her official cashiering. the fact that on top of her priorities is the chasing of solo’s killers shows that she is in it for her own benefit and not for national benefit. tsvangirayi lost his wife in dodgy circumstances but never has he said that he wants to avenge that. also, joice consistently said that she has no ambition to become president now she is lying that people requested her to be president.
    the day we learnt to accept and tell the truth, our country and ourselves shall be liberated!!!

    MY ADVISE TO YOU Tsenengamu and company. When you went about your raod show naGrace you destroyed the emage of Amai Venyika Dr Amai Mujuru muchinyengedzwa. The best is for you to go straight kumba kwaMai Mujuru and call a press conference muriko mobva mavakumbira ruregerero uye motikumbirawo ruregerero is senyika. Akaregerera Grace achitaura zvinyadzi paNational Television vana vedu vachinzwa. After that endai kumaprovinces ese kutanga neMash Central. Go to the following places: Rushinga, Chimhanda, Bveke, Kamutsenzere, St Alberts, Katakura, Mt Darwin, Chawanda, Nyamazizi, Chiswiti, Sohwe, Karanda, Chiutsa mutaure nevanhu nokuti ndiko kune rukuvhute rwamai. Munofanira kushanda nesimba kuti muvachenure. However chokwadi ndechokuti isu hedu hatina kumbobvira takawirirana nazvo asi kuti chembere ndidzo dzanga dzoneperwa kuti dzirase Joyce. PAMBERI NA DR MUJURU

    politicians are similar to ostriches. They have brains too small in ratio to their bodies. They approach situations with gargantuan thurnderlike noise yet, but a small dotlike
    brains. Just yesterday you were shouting loungs out “Dr Amai, Amai Venyika” you could squizzeout life of any alternative thinking. Today you are calling her by birthname. Is this not the less wit guy who advocated for Dorrowdale road to be named after your “amai”.

    Zvatosvorana gonzo nachin’ai. What you seem to have seen today was discovered in the mid 90s, before the 1999 political party formation.

      Being labelled youth does not turn grown men into kindargarten babies…These youth leaders should give a more plausible reason why they did what they did..Like they were promised some hefty payout of something..Otherwise, they should just shut up! Mujuru should welcome them but they should not have any positions as they have confessed to the fact that thinking is not one of their best strengths..

    Look,no one is likely to take these guys seriously now that they have been given the boot. Mai Mujuru can carry the day quite easily without these idiots spoiling the broth. What she needs is to throw people like Mutasa, Kunaka and other known miscreants into the background of the party and of course there will be no harm in putting shackles on them as regard communication with the press. The people out there might have forgiven these vermin idiots but the wounds are still too fresh. Its not like they are being thrown to the wolves but more like being repatriated somewhat. The next step is to put to rest the issue of the estate of the General. Leaving it in limbo as is happening in the current state is playing straight into the hands of her enemies who have her as a heartless and unfeeling woman who is out to fix the children the Genera had out of wedlock. This is one issue that is STANDING with an ugly frown on her path to the top…Get it out of the way good madam!
