Mnangagwa is so bad he makes Mugabe look like an angel


President Emmerson Mnangagwa is a disaster and is so bad that he makes former President Robert Mugabe look like an angel, Movement for Democratic Change vice-chairperson Tendai Biti said.

Biti, who is vying to become one of the vice-presidents of the party at its congress which starts tomorrow, told Deutsche Welle today that sanctions were not to blame at all for the current economic crisis.

“That’s just a slogan, just travel bans on a few people. Zimbabwe trades with every country in the world. It has a huge trading account with the United States, so sanctions are a fiction,” he said.

“The real sanction in this economy is ZANU-PF, the real sanction in this economy is Emmerson Mnangagwa and that’s why we are in this fix.

“Mnangagwa is a disaster. Mnangagwa is so bad he makes Mugabe look like an angel. And Mugabe was certainly not an angel by any standard.”

Biti said Zimbabwe was currently in a mess.

“I think it’s an absolute mess, an absolute dog’s breakfast. Emmerson and his lot have failed,” he said.

“People are suffering, the economy is in a recession, there is also inflation, hyperinflation. We have never been in such a situation since the creation of modern Zimbabwe.

“This is the worst leader we have had and the worst government we have had in the history of government in this country.”
