Mugabe is so old he could vote for Tsvangirai without noticing it, Mwonzora says- updated


Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe is now so old that next year, when he will be 94, he will vote for Movement for Democratic change leader Morgan Tsvangirai without noticing it.

This was said by MDC-T secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora who was urging the people of Mufakose in Harare to vote for his party at next year’s elections because it is the only stable party that can rule this country.

“MDC is the only stable political entity in the country right now. There is a lot of infighting within ZANU-PF and no other political party but MDCT has remained solid and united. Those are signs of a party ready to rule,” Mwonzora was quoted by NewZimbabwe.Com as saying

The Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front has been dogged by infighting since its congress in 2014 which saw First Lady Grace Mugabe being elevated to Secretary for its Women’s League.

She has been at Vice-President Emerson Mnangagwa’s throat ever since as she tries to edge him out of the succession battle.

Last week, she saw the firing of her deputy Eunice Sandi-Moyo and treasurer Sarah Mahoka but this is now awaiting party approval.

One of her staunchest supporters, national commissar Saviour Kasukuwere is also under fire. But the First Lady could be trying to get rid of him too as he was allegedly using her to prop himself up.

Hundreds of youths today demonstrated against Kasukuwere and his brother Dick Mafios in Bindura today.

According to the Herald, some of the placards the youths  carried said: “Taramba kutongwa ne G40.. makadzingisa vanhu vakawanda mubato vasina mhosva….this thug must go”
