“In Zimbabwe, Mnangagwa has gone full-on Kagame. The end point: No political rights, civil liberties, or free speech – no dissent or criticism allowed and certainly no independent media or human rights groups. But look, our streets are clean!”
This is the view of Jeffrey Smith, the executive director of Vanguard Africa, a Washington based nonprofit which supposedly “partners with Africa’s best and bravest to support ethical leadership, advocate for free and fair elections and build inclusive democracies”.
Smith tweeted this on Saturday in response to a tweet by President Emmerson Mnangagwa in which he said he had joined other staff at State House in the inaugural national clean-up day.
A well-known Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front sympathiser David Matsanga Nyekorach, on 1 August last year, the day violence rocked Harare and ended up with six people being killed by the military, said this was the work of Smith and his colleagues to discredit the 30 July elections.
He said this was an elaborate plan which involved philanthropist George Soros and then chair of The Elders Kofi Annan who wanted to make sure the elections went in favour of Movement for Democratic Change Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa.
“When they realised that their plan had flopped they triggered the violence that engulfed Harare on 1 August before the full election results had been released so that they could get the whole election process condemned,” Matsanga claimed.
He said Soros and Annan used the French DSGE (Directorate-General of External Security) which is the equivalent of the British MI6 or the United States CIA to run Parallel Tallying Servers. They had 17 such servers at the French embassy in Harare, some in Zambia, South Africa, Paris and Luton.
“It is again very clear that using the BVR Data that has been hacked from the ZEC by Chamisa and Tendai Biti henchmen and senior French experts placed in these countries, the MDC Alliance has obtained their OWN DOCTORED and SEXED election results,” Matsanga claimed.
“No wonder MDC Alliance and Tendai Biti plus some media news agencies are reading from a different script about the Election results .Unless action is taken against those experts who are now in Zimbabwe headed by the VANGUARD AFRICA who are based in Chamisa and other opposition leaders’ houses .
“The Government of Zimbabwe must rise up to the occasion and check the George Soros and Kofi Annan observers who also have worked as mercenaries and observers in this Elections. There are observer and media groups in Zimbabwe that are out to cause an uprising not to observe,” he said.
Matsanga said one of the major culprits was Jeffrey Smith of Vanguard Africa, who he claimed was in Harare.
Smith’s link to the opposition was captured during a visit to Washington by Chamisa and Biti.
