Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front national commissar Victor Matemadanda has blasted former First Lady Grace Mugabe for being ungrateful and the G40 faction of ZANU-PF for planning the overthrow of President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
In an interview with the Bulawayo daily, The Chronicle, Matemadanda said regime-change agents had ditched the opposition Movement for Democratic Change and were now focussing on the G40 element which just before the military intervention of November 2017 was about to take over leadership of ZANU-PF.
“They have seen that the MDC project won’t work. Now they have gone at another level, it is common cause and common knowledge that they have put $5 million for social media abuse propaganda against the ZANU-PF government and they are giving money to anyone that will oppose any ZANU-PF activity,” Matemadanda said.
“And as we speak, we have on social media stories like Tyson is coming to take over, the military wants to overthrow the Government, this minister or this vice president have gone into an agreement to overthrow the President, this and that. They are creating this confusion so that they cause disharmony and create an opportunity for the re-introduction of the erstwhile colonial power.
“The Tysons, the Jonathan Moyos are being used. Malema has also been put in the same line. He becomes a big brand that boy, that stupid young boy thinks he can negotiate, he goes at the centre of vaMnangagwa and Chamisa and says you guy come I want you to make a settlement, what stupid thinking is that. Where does Malema come from in the revolution of Zimbabwe?
“He is being persuaded by the likes of Kasukuwere and then that shows the level or capacity that Kasukuwere has to think that a Zimbabwean deal can be brokered by a person of the level of Malema, this is desperation.”
Matemadanda blasted Grace Mugabe for being ungrateful after Mnangagwa bailed her out to come and bury her mother.
“Here you have some lady who has been keeping the corpse in her bedroom, when her mother died, the President had to charter a plane to get her so that she buries her mother and she sings praises ‘ah vaMnangagwa vakanaka ah I didn’t know, he is like an angel’ but only six days ago she was in a meeting with these fools planning on how they think they can overthrow this government.
“Why are they doing that? It is not for them; it is for the people that we defeated in the battle field. ..my word to them is that we know all these machinations, we know why there are so many issues on the social media giving an impression that there is insecurity in Zimbabwe and they are trying also to scare away investors, whenever the President is out trying to lure investors hee Tyson Wabantu is coming, what is Tyson in the security set-up of this region and this country? Can we lose sleep because there is a person called Saviour Kasukuwere coming, was he not here? Why didn’t he act? Why did he run out nxa eyindoda sibili?” Matemadanda asked.
On Jonathan Moyo, Matemadanda said: “O Jonathan, yimpabanga kuphela, he is a confusionist, he doesn’t even know where his face is, whether it is at the back or at the front, he doesn’t know and how do you expect such a person to lead you, he has been everywhere causing confusion, he caused confusion in South Africa, in Botswana they don’t want him, in Kenya to his own in-laws, he has caused problems, he is a trouble maker and how do you ever entertain such a person to even think of leading this country? You can’t.
“They are not going anywhere, we are not going to lose sleep ngenxa yokuthi kuthiwa o Tyson labo Jonathan lempabanga zabo bazabuya, besiya ngaphi? Besenzani? Labobani? Who will accompany them? They are just making a lot of noise but of course they want to cause a lot of disinvestment in this country, they want to create an impression that there is insecurity in Zimbabwe and therefore investors should not come.”
