Makoni asks Mugabe to come clean on Mujuru


Mavambo-Kusile-Dawn leader Simba Makoni has called on President Robert Mugabe to come clean on Vice-President Joice Mujuru after the showndown with his wife Grace who lambasted his number two during her nationwide tour.  “The President of Zimbabwe needs to come clean and open and defend his Vice-President or act otherwise if he does not have confidence anymore in his Vice-President,” Makoni said. “What is his position about all this because his ministers vari kusakurwa masikati machena ivo vakangonyarara ndosaka ndichiti kuda vari pamwe, asi hazvisi zvemhurika izvi, nyika yeZimbabwe haisi yemhuri. Ndeyedu tese,”he was quoted by New Zimbabwe.Com as saying. “Does he approve of all the statements being made by Mrs Grace Mugabe, on matters of state and government?..Has he abdicated his responsibilities to the people of Zimbabwe, in deference to his wife? Is he condoning the disparaging remarks she is making about ministers he appointed, and whom he supervises? Is he acquiescing to, aiding and or abetting the paralysis of government by Mrs Grace Mugabe? We state here, even though it is apparent, that Zimbabwe is not a dynasty, and we call on the people of Zimbabwe, especially the leaders and other members of ZANU-PF, to resist the dynastisation of our country,” he said. Makoni was at one time one of the leading contenders to succeed Mugabe but he left ZANU-PF in 2008 to contest the presidential elections. At the time he was alleged to have been sponsored by Joice Mujuru’s husband Solomon Mujuru who had openly opposed Mugabe’s candidacy for presidency at the 2006 Goromonzi party national conference and called for an emergency congress in 2007. Mujuru failed to oust Mugabe at the special congress.
