Mtukudzi on crisis in Zimbabwe: “I’m not a politician…I don’t know who is wrong”

Legendary Zimbabwean musician Oliver Mtukudzi has said he is not a politician and does not know who is to blame for the economic crisis in Zimbabwe.

During an interview broadcast on Nehanda TV, Mtukudzi was asked by journalist Pindai Dube for his thoughts on the economic crisis in Zimbabwe.

“I also live in the same conditions as everybody else, whatever struggle is there, I also experience that, I live here, I am a Zimbabwean, I stay here.

“Unfortunately I’m not a politician. I don’t know what to say, I don’t know who is wrong. I don’t know who can make it right. But I think as Zimbabweans we have to be optimistic that its going to be better.”

Mtukudzi has always been reluctant to comment on the political situation in the country.

Although he has been criticised for performing at President Robert Mugabe’s ruling Zanu PF party functions, his camp has also reminded critics that he also performed at opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai’s wedding reception in September 2012.

Mtukudzi’s refusal to be sucked into the polarised world of politics in Zimbabwe is in complete contrast to exiled music legend Thomas Mapfumo, who has declared he will remain a voice of the people and speak out against the abuses of President Robert Mugabe’s regime. Nehanda Radio

      Of corse, he does!

      If he doesn’t know he must be living in MARS. If you ask a kid on the street he knows where to point a finger of blame. Perhaps, the musician swims alongside these sharks and depends on the left – overs and the crumbs they leave. If we don’t tell them (politicians) the truth for fear of offending them, we are not doing anyone a favour. And our children will not forgive us. The damage these politicians have caused to our children will have a lasting effect. The shadow will hover over Zimbabwe because he pushed people in different directions. He radicalised lots of people. Many have no respect of the laws and it’s not the best thing for the country. In my opinion he did more harm than good. All the good things he did for the country were sullied by the bad things. Domestically, the president’s policies failed. His economic vision also failed. He polarised the idea of trickle down economics where people at the top got richer and that on the bottom got poorer. Economically, the majority were pushed down a road which impoverished them. And a lot of towns and cities were destroyed. And M’tukudzi tells the nation he doesn’t see all this or he is simply telling us that he is the president’s supporter. If so, he must come out in the open. Yes, when he took office in 1980, he shook the country up, restored national pride, gave people hope. He advocated for indigenisation but never supported the farmers in their endeavour. Some started begrudging him and his policies. He was so hated because they thought he was against them. But to some, like Tuku, thought he was a figurehead for aspiring man.

      • kismores

        I find it baffling for Tuku not to see that people are suffering and nothing is functioning in Zimbabwe. And the majority don’t get the recognition they deserve. Tuku was critic of the president but am surprised he changed his tone. Saka arikukambura. But who is fooling who?

        • wilbert

          Exactly!

      • wilbert

        All we are asking him to do is join in the call for free, fair and credible elections. That is not asking for too much is it!

    • Patrick Guramatunhu

      Mtukudzi had made his living on the backs of ordinary Zimbabweans who
      have attended his shows and bought his music, the least he can do to
      repay them is acknowledge their suffering and not belittle it by denying it is happening!

  • Mdhara chingotaurai pachena kuti zanu yaora babaaa weeeee

  • Bambo taurai chokwadi. Haikona kuhwanda nemunwe!

  • What an idiot

  • samanyanga munoziva kurarama,yo vote is yo secret muchifayisa mazhet

    • wilbert

      We are talking here of a country where vote rigging is the norm!

  • kutya

  • Iqiniso kaliqedi buhlobo.. Bvuma iwe. Bvuma wasakara…

  • See no evil. Hear no evil. Speak no evil. This policy makes you part of the evil.

    • Plain truth

    • wilbert

      Exactly! In this case the growing poverty has spared no one including him!

  • He is right because he knows ukataura chokwadi , unopihwa Zenya

    • Brian

      No he is selfish,as long as he is ok

    • wilbert

      Some people have given their very lives so we can be free and now he will not even say one word to defend that freedom? How selfish can one be!!!!!!

  • Beating about the bush

  • Allow the old man to sing good music don’t bring him into politics. Okay

    • wilbert

      And with millions now living in poverty, who does he think will buy his music!

      • SHAME SHAME SHAME (RELOADED)

        hahahahaahahaha

  • Haaa hazvidi kuti uve politician kuti uone kuti chii chirikukonzeresa hee Tuku wega iwewe haugai?

  • Magona musanyeperwe nemadima

  • Then he is not OK upstairs

  • Vuma wasakara

  • When are we going to save ourselves from this mess .Do we have men in Zimbabwe ?????

  • Mtukudzi is a damn coward. Ushaya inja afihle umpini. The fact that he knows there’s an economic crisis but doesn’t know who is responsible shows that Mtukudzi is ballless and spineless. Unlike his ernstwhile friend Mapfumo who calls a spade or spade. Mtukudzi is a Zanupf apologist. Let me give Mtukudzi some clue on who is responsible for economic meltdown in Zim. The individual responsible for this is the same man who ordered a hit on your only son Sam who was dating his daughter Bona. Need i say more Tuku?

    • Have you ever seen Mapfumo in Harare ????? No he is in exile he can say all he wants and will still be safe.

      The man has contributed in the music industry if he doesn’t want to have say on zim economy and you feel the urge to say something go on and leave this our legend Alone prizzi

    • our legend? Mtukudzi is certainly not my legend. I won’t leave your legend alone. he has gotten his hands dirty as it is by cowardly commenting on the economic issue

    • I think reminding someone of his fallen son is such a way is revolting regardless of whatever the subject is. You hv crossed the line here. Learn to make effective arguments without attaching personal distaste of someone or your emotion. It looks like you are expressing to hatred. Draw a line that son is his family be careful

    • Be careful of what? Mtukudzi’ son was killing by Mugabe a man he is so freaken afraid of.

    • What could a musician possibly do to better the political situation in a country like ours

    • He can speak out candidly to power. He must stop sugar coating stuff.

      • wilbert

        Exactly, he has a duty to the nation to defend the people’s freedom and human rights like everyone else. Why is he shying away and expect others to fight for him?

    • Mtukudzi’s comments wont change anything.SPOKEN WORDS bring no change but action.Leave Tuku out of this please.Only God can change things by speaking not TUKU,so shut up n watch yo favourite movies.

    • Gift Menzi Cele so you witnessed this & heard Mugabe give the order?😂 you are joke dude. Who went globe trotting, campaigning & telling nations not to invest in Zimbabwe until Mugabe resigns? Tsvangirai gambled our nation for political gain which backfired & here we are. During the Bush era in America Obama did not go globe trotting to stop businesses investing in USA because he didn’t like the Bush camp.

    • Hahahaha if mtukudzi is a coward what are you Gift Menzi doing to turnaround the economy please enlighten us !?

    • sometimes you need wisdom to handle certain issues and i believe mr mtukudzi did that in a classy way

    • This Gift whatever his name is needs robust and direct match to his what l would call personal hurt crime. What did Tuku do to you?. You neee to clear off and get a grip. No doubt you are very unbalanced when it comes to debates,suggestions and opinions. Remember everyone including your empty vessel has the right to expression but that doesn’t not exornarate you from being ignorant and selfish when u mention a son who is dead. Everyone has condemned your abnoxious assertions!

    • Ibvaipo u blame Gift for busting that rubbish mugabe, kusvika rinhi mutya, yes Tuku is a coward u bastard and coward zimbabweans u still scared kutaura chokwadi mumwe murume asina jende samugabe achikuitai party makanyarara suka asingazive kuita kwamugabe pakati penyu ngataure kuti haazive zvakaitwa tuku’s son mugabe and that Bitch there are behind the hit

    • dako rako iwe gara ne evidnc yko stupet

    • Suka varume vakapera muzimbabwe chokwadi kusupporrt mbavha nekuda kwehugwara ure sooo coward u jst think about urslf kuvana venyu hamuna tsitsi navo here shame on u

    • Gift Menzi Cele Killed not Killing rest in peace English

    • l attended one of his shows abroad last June and he refused to play bvuma or have anyone with a Zim flag on stage… when one defiant flag waving fan just went there anyway Tuku went off stage. his hosts were shocked

    • And azo achiever besides to live in self imposed exile

  • Tuku is disgraceful… his fans only matter to him because they pay for his shows and music. think about this seriously the next time he has a show near you.

    • Iwe ‘have u played yo part to change the situation?Urikuda kuti Tuku ataure ko iwe wambotaurawo here?Get up,stand up fo what u believe ndiko kuti tikuti uriGAMBA.Enda pamberi tigokutevera.

    • What have you done iwe to rectify the situation since tuku is a disgrace. The guy pays taxes and donates to charity. You can blame the guy for not wanting to make a fool of himself by involving himself with murderous politics. Heroes according to zimbabweans are dead politians. Dead guys tell no tale.

    • get lost

  • he has his own reasons for saying so, so let him be!

  • I don’t blame him,especially if he ponders on what happened to his son.

  • Leave the man alone, he’s only being diplomatic we all know what’s going on in Zim… Let’s say he did mention who’s to blame for the turmoil we’re all in then what! ? Will that make all our problems disappear!? Kwanai mhen…

  • Leave Tuku alone….imi muri kuti gwara muri kuitei? Tese tiri makwara…tiri mboko dzavanhu tese….moda kuti kumuurayisa kuti aita sei….tangai yenyu hondo musiyane naTuku!!

  • Doesn’t know or Afraid to say . Gwara r.

  • Anotyira hupenyu hwake

  • he is simply distancing himself from the world of politics . he is sounding more professional .

  • Politics to politicians,music to musicians and gospel to gospel. Let him protect his image. You want him to say something that is out of his boundary,then what?

  • Ndozvinoita kukura unopedzisira dzisingatore mushe. ##lessonlearnt

  • Let Tuku hide himself speeting can’t stop smel kusvipa hakudzingi hwema nyangwe akaziva arikuondonga nyika anomudii dai uriwe wabvunzwa i bock haram remember

  • Thats an intelligent reply actually. If i was in his shoes id say the same. Because just like lucky Dube said. The black men say its the white men. The indian say it’s the coloured. Ask Mugabe now he will say its the whites. Ask Bennet he will say its mugabe. Manje so

  • Hmmmm playing it safe Mdara Tuku

  • Don’t play dumb old man u know exactly who is to blame

    • mashoko makukutu…..wise words

    • Wise words zvako iwe !Mtukudzi adii zvake !Nyangwe akataura zvakonzera kuondonga kwe nyika hazvidzose chinhu kwaari !Musamurwadzise nemashoko he accepted what happened kumwana wake !Anoenda kuchurch uye anoziva kuti we are not meant for this world !Rufu runouya kumunhu wese !Nguva nemafiro ndozvinosiyana !Leave Mtukudzi alone

    • Tell them my sister kkkk.

    • Aftr kurasikirwa nemwanakomana wake ku that bitch Grace who plot the hit he was suppose to show a little respect kujaya rake that to cover up tsvina idzi

    • Yadeuka yadeuka,wafa warova uye ziva kuti kusvipa mate hakudzinge hwema

    • Courage Mpala there is no cover up !Mtukudzi is not a politician! He’s an artist kufirwa kana kusafirwa haana chekutaura panyaya due economic melt down! Maakuda kumuisa mashoko mukanwa here !

  • Kibo kagwala akula sililo.

  • Bvuma wachembera uncle you are good as useless as the old man uncle bhobho

  • But he’s right. He’s being neutral. He’s a musician and not a politician. His fans are from all political parties and so he must not divide them.

  • You don’t have to be a politician to know the truth Oliver Mtukududzi. The truth is staring at you in the face. Come on, you can do better than this.

    • What stance have you taken my sister Flo,leave Tuku alone & show us how brave you are!!

    • Lewis Mukube, my brother, I think when it comes to matters of politics, one cannot sit on the fence as Tuku is doing. You are either for the truth or you are not. He should have simply kept quiet about the issue! My views!

  • If you want to be active in politics come out in public as an individual and tell us who is to blame for the economic crisis. Don’t hide behind other people’s names.

  • Does it needs to be a politician to know the truth which is naked?

  • Well done Tuku wakataura pachikuru uye for your safety. Bt we all know it anyway. Makavaudza kare vakuru vaye kuti bvuma kusakara.

  • I think tuku Is correct. …..you can not point who to blame because we are all part and parcel of the mess….We voted zanu into power after we suffered in 2008….what will make it not to win again. …..zanu calls for 1 million man March then the whole city of hre will be full…..leave tuku alone…..We citizens are to blame

  • Who ever think that Tuku is wrong don’t corrupts people’s minds with your thoughts.Tuku is actually rite because people think that it’s only Zanu pf bring down economic ,try not to pretend like you don’t know the real fact happened Zimbabwe was very good until Tsvangirai surfaces as an opposition he is the one who locked our country it’s only that Zanu pf and tsvangirai are playing country game with people/individuals lives. Only needed now is a way forward to curb this economic crisis not blame game

  • Lewis Mukube tiudze mwana wake akadiniko

  • Thts a very mature answer by Tuku,I was him I wld probably say the same. He is an artist and his job is to sing pple expect him to be outspoken and thts not fair. look where Mapfumo is now bcz of being outspoken. imimi murikuti he is a coward wht hv u done to change thing,the reason why most of you(n me included) are outside zim its bcz we accepted tht we can’t cange a thing and wll we need to do is to survive. let’s not expect tooo much from others yet we are alsoo full of apathy. Thts hypocricy!!!!

    • what is art if it is not about questioning the ‘normal’… by the way not saying something or not doing something is already doing something in the form of affirming the status quo. in that sense he is proping the system that brought us this nightmare. its a bit naive to think there is neutral ground. after all he got $100k worth of equipment as a ‘gift’ from the first family… you think that came with no strings

    • There is one thing you should try and realise, his fans come from both pro zanu and anti zanu,if he makes a reckless statement he is bound to lose some of his fans he knows where his bread is battered so he doesn’t want to antagonise himself with any of his fans,tht my friend is what I call wisdom. If he says wht you expect him to say will you come to his aid when his music plumets? I don’t think you will!!!!!

  • The $10k ‘donation’ is now talking! Bought out cheaply, sale sale

  • Asking Tuku such a question is like kubvunza mbudzi yakafuratira kuti ihadzi here or hono (male/female)

  • You did well Dr Tuku,don’t tell them what they already know. They want you to lose what you’ve worked for your whole life & for what???

  • Coward

  • Leave my father alone pliz????

  • That’s rather selfish

  • I am not a politician but I know….

  • So Mr Mutukudzi does not vote come elections.Your vote mks u a politician mudhara kkk.

  • zanu yandisvonga amana

  • Hakuna chisikwa chiri naneee

  • Mapfumo can say wat ever he wants coz he is exile

  • I would say the same

  • Please everyone is into politics, whether you like it or not! To say handiite politics is itself a political statement and political stand!
    Lives were lost as people fought to give the disenfranchised majority blacks a political freedom.
    Isn’t it tragic that some of those people are now living politics to the politicians!

    • I love your analysis. And also taking in2 consideration that an artist z the voice of the pple so he shld b in2bpolitics whether he likes t or not.

    • I love your analysis. And also taking in2 consideration that an artist z the voice of the pple so he shld b in2bpolitics whether he likes t or not.

  • Tuku being a popular figure in society he has carefully calculated his political opinion so that he doesnt have 2 flee and live in exile as has happened 2 Mapfumo. All of us zimbos are cowards , we are just good at making a lot of noise, pointing fingers at others yet we are very afraid 2 confront the dragon as a united force.

    • Ichi ndicho chokwadi manje hama unfortunately we will never c it as long as we are in exile

    • he doesn’t have to flee but he is also a coward coz he know what’s going on..he is there in zim, he is influential why is it that he can’t say something…….Vele onke ama celeb are cowards

  • Politics is for Everyone and by Everyone!

    The best recipe for evil to prosper is for good people to remain silent, However it is coined.

  • Well said superstar tuku,

  • He is old enough he has been there and he knows and can follow up the events.

  • Thats why I love madhara akafanana nana Mukanya he is not scared to talk the truth vana Tuku kubva pacomment yako nhasi tabudana uri bharanzi u cover up zviri pachena, we thought we have older pple among us who can help to expose the looters for the sake of next generation bt mdara ure a failure a looser and selfish

  • So

  • Call a spade a spade. Boss don’t be a coward and everyone is a politician

  • Well done Tuku. Everyone in Zim knows who is to blame for this fucked up economy! Even the idiot who asked you knows. Why should you be everyone’s spokesperson? Don’t tell them what they already know. Continue making good music Tuku.

  • We all know the truth,Tuku played it down-in Zim there’s freedom of speech but you can’t be guaranteed the freedom after the speech

  • Ibvai spa maida kuti arare atorwa husiku nevakomana vemagirazi eblack husiku,thts wisdom Tuku,Dai akangorasa muromo,aimuka asipo

    Mtukudzi always diplomatic. If you buy and listen to his songs you don’t really have to ask him who the author of our country’s misery. I invite readers to listen to Tuku’s music . Mapfumo is angry and bitter because he supported ZANU-PF to the core in the early 1980s even insulting those that dared oppose the party.And this was during the “moment of madness” when people were locked up simply because they dared support PF(ZAPU) or simply because they fought on the ZIPRA side

  • This is good to think Like this sometime and nobody is great thinker like him

  • What does it benefit to blame for economic meltdown? why should he mention who? is this an issue…like really?

    • Say that again. .. tanga wapedza kunzwa nekutamba all his music….

  • Dopori

    You have to deduce his thoughts from the lyrics on most of his songs. He is a poet – an artist – in the natural sense of things so it’s up to the individual to interpret the meanings of his songs in the context of the goings on in our country. That’s my take.

  • kkkkk not knowing who to blame means he is blaming someone…tuku so

  • Good thinking Tuku

  • Ziviray mumoyo baba…asi mozviziva henyu

    Fusteke iwe,you know your friend Grace,her Goblin Hubby and Zanu PF are to blame for the mess they created.You are just protecting your skinny Bum.You look like you have AIDS.

  • There is only one truth in his answer: im not a politician. The rest are lies

  • Gud reply thanks Tuku you’re a great man

  • A gentleman answer I think all of us are to blame 😞😞😞

  • Chikiti

    He can say it and lose the cheques from Zanu pf show performances

  • He knows very well the side on which his bread is buttered and the very pple who butter it. 😂😂😂😂

  • typical even during e liberation struggle he was clueless

  • If all of you guys can read Tuku’s biography by Shepherd Mutamba. He pointed out that Tuku was given musical kit worth $87000,00 by Mugabe. The reason is only a secret among the two.

    Mhanzi yaTuku ini ndoida till i die but on this dhara Tuku ririkutiza chokwadi nekuti wasakara yanga yamupinza patyt kuti akumobiliser vanhu bvuma dhara ukutya kupiswa chekusure nemdara anivharisa norton achienda kumusha kwake

  • Don’t drive your politics through tuku

  • Hats Off for Tuku,Thomas Mapfumo now in SELF IMPOSED EXILE coz of politics.Stay safe Samanyanga.

  • Guys leave Tuku Alone dont try to involve him in politics he’s a musician not a politician simple all those who are offended by Tuku’s opinion why can’t you just do it yourselves and see if its going to change the Zim situation don’t be good at pointing fingers after all you’re also cowards,Tuku is a musician not a politician get that in your heads .

  • His songs says it all,very nice songs.By the way what crisis? Why freedom of expression is being denied to ppl?

  • uru ku nyepa Ollie, you wrote songs about revolution while your puppateers looted stole and raped the country…..no music about these zanu plunderers or they pay the piper too ??

    “And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country,” was the rally call of John F Kennedy in his 1961 inaugural speech.

    If there was ever a time the people of Zimbabwe, wherever they are and whoever they are, must ask themselves “What can I do for my country, Zimbabwe?” then there will never be a better time than now.

    “I’m not a politician,” is the worst cop-out I have ever heard.

    Mtukudzi, the country is in a real mess and if we do not so something to save it is will sink deeper and deeper into the abyss and take us all down with it. There are no babies out there who are born with the “politician” stamped on their bum! So get off your high horse and contribute something to save the country now before it is too late.

    The immediate task is to stop next year’s elections going ahead until meaningful reforms are implemented. You do not need to be a politician to say you want to see the country hold free, fair and credible elections!!!!

    “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—

    Because I was not a Socialist.

    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—

    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—

    Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

    Martin Niemoller.

    Zimbabwe is a real mess today because we, the people of Zimbabwe, have failed to realise that the denial of one’s freedoms and basic human rights is the denial of everyone’s freedoms and basic human rights. Because the one will soon be two, three and before we know it we too are one of the victims.

    It is amazing that even one with the country is a real mess with millions living in abject poverty, proof that we are all victims of this corrupt and tyrannical Zanu PF dictatorship, one still find the naval-gazing odd ball still grovelling and appeasing the tyrant!

    Oliver Mtukudzi should shave his head and cover it in ash for his shameful and selfish remarks. Of course, he knows who has been riding roughshod over our freedoms and basic human rights and has destroyed the nation’s economy to gratify his insatiable greed for absolute power and wealth!

    Mtukudzi had made his living on the backs of ordinary Zimbabweans who have attended his shows and bought his music, the least he can do to repay them is acknowledge their suffering and not belittle it!
