‘I gave him food when everyone else was refusing to share with him:’ Mutsvangwa on Mugabe

By Sibanengi Dube

War Veterans leader Chris Mutsvangwa was in Sandton (South Africa) yesterday where he addressed a press conference that I attended. I couldn’t believe what he was uttering.

Stunned journalists listened in horror as Mutsvangwa literally read from the MDC script, complaining about how undemocratic Robert Mugabe was and how the 93 year old despot was selfish and only concerned about surrendering power to his young and clinically ‘mad wife’, Grace.

He expressed anger over how Mugabe dumped his long time ally Emmerson Mnangagwa who he fired a few day ago, to pave way for his wife. He described the scenario as a coup through a marriage certificate.

He said Mugabe was handing over Zimbabwe to Grace just like a husband giving a ring to a wife. He called upon the people of Zimbabwe to stop the demented and senile Mugabe from parcelling out their country to Grace and her G40 protagonists. He refrained from ‘coup threats’ but appealed to SADC to intervene and avert a potentially looming bloody resistance.

Mutsvangwa fell short of apologising on behalf of the war veterans for violently terrorising MDC in the previous elections. This followed after journalists questioned his sudden change of heart.

“Vana vembwa havasvinure musi umwe chete,” he said.

Loosely translated as puppies do not open their eyes on the same day. 

Mutsvangwa also claimed that Mugabe never shot even one bullet in the liberation struggle. He went as far as claiming that the 93 year leader of Zanu PF was not in any way connected to the liberation struggle. He only came to the military camps once as he was banished to Maputo.

Mutsvangwa said he received the starving Mugabe when he arrived in Mozambique.

“I gave him food when everyone else was refusing to share their food with him,” said Mutsvangwa drawing laughter from members of the media.

  • So you want your food back ?

  • come home

  • Gore rino…..dai mvura ikangonaya tiwane hupfu

  • he was addressing who, in sandton?

    • Taura hako. Zimbabweans are in Zimbabwe suffering. A lot of them who are in South Africa live in Hillbrow. That’s where he must have addressed people.

      Sandton is a place where people who have loads of cash stay and am very sure the number of Zimbabweans who attended that briefing is next to nill. Maybe Chatunga and Robert Jnr were in attendance since they afford staying in Sandton.

    • He didn’t mention how he maimed wildlife and smeared his own faeces on farm walls.

  • makutiza munyika menyuka.yu invested all the executive powers on the old man now its backfiring,dzoka utaure uri pedyo dude

  • Zvoshamisa izvi

  • Taura hako Rachy

  • Pataikuudzai kuti Mugabe imhata makati imi ma youths tinopenga tirikuda kutengesa nyika kuma bhunu na Tsvangirai mukati hakuna mumwe Mugabe chete mu Office nhasi zvarwadza maakuda support ye youth manje isu taakuda Mugabe iyeye nhamo taijaira You killed a lot of people for Mugabe Ma war vets muri mboko bvisai mega Mugabe kana mamubvisa isu youth tozokubvisaiwo

  • So what must we do about it, do you want us to pay you for sharing your food with a dictator perhaps?Hell no we won’t clap hands for such nonsense you should have left the idiot to starve to death.You are also equally to be blamed for feeding a snake that is now chasing everyone from our beautiful home Zimbabwe.

  • Mxxxxxxxxxxxxm fuckOFF why are they following us in SA ,, The state house is at Harare not in Sandton may they go straight to their fucken Bob not here to Zumas ,,, They shld tell Bob face to face why are they runing away

  • Nothing wrong bygones, let’s look into the future, War vets apologized wani

    • When and how did they apologise. Did they pay restitution?

  • Wooooow!!! Once in a certain village, a man saw a small lion cub, probably less than two weeks old, took it home, started feeding it with cow milk. The cub grew and become an adult lion. The man would kill goats, sheep and cows to feed the cub and at times, the lion would capture a goat in the presence of the man and the man will be enjoying the spectacle, then one day, the man wasn’t around and when he came back, the lion had devoured all the cows, goats, sheep and 2 of his children. The man was angry with the lion, but what he forgot is that he is the one who made the lion, he is the one who created the whole mess he was now in. Vakuru in shona vanoti, “kurumwa nechekuchera.”

    • Very true Samson, I guess you did Literature in English at school

    • Yes Mthandazo Dube. Literature was one of my favorite subjects.

    • Your point its valid and i respect it now lets find ways to get the lion of our homes cause its now affecting people who have done nothing. the lion must be hunted down by the comunity and the man must suffer for bringing such a monster amongst the people. Unity among the weak turns a preditor to a pray

    • Hahaha! Rique Mac Reaper, the lion has now become more powerful than the whole village. It now has a pride made up of a vicious lioness and loose cannons of cubs and some of the villagers are on it’s side. Kkkkkkkk!

    • Hahaha you are right remember edison zvobgo lawyer who changed the constitution

  • Good riddance and we’re going to invade their ill gotten farms crazy buffoons

  • Handei Chasu

  • Takazvitaura kare bob haana basa neruzhinji uyo. Hant maimutsigira here.kkkkkk makutizei nhai

  • Eish if only if you had let him starve Zimbabwe would be a far much better place to live in.

  • Wongohukura

  • Write a comment…

  • If ever their is a change in zimbabwean government we dont want ever to include any person with a name which starts with cde because all of u u have enjoyed your time so please mutsvangwa and the crew even if u come with manna from heaven or u make zimbabwe to flow milk and honey today we dont need your services anymore we are tired with that name associated with cde so and so since ian smiths time no not this time we need to be lead by a mr or mrs so so thats all

  • Situpeti..You are the reason behind all this mess.He lost elections & admitted & you forced him back thru back door.Enjoy the supper now.Hapana zvamunomuita ende hapana.Muchavukura mugovukura nobody will listern to that nonsense.

    • why should any thinking Zimbabwean not afflicted by tribal emotions give a toss about Mnangagwa or war veterans or their fight with old Bob? There is nothing in this fight for us povo and its ridiculous that Mutsvangwa wants to pretend its about the nation. NO! Its about their internal struggle about who can get an exclusive opportunity to loot, plunder and kill. Fokoro wako Chris

  • bobsled

    Spare us the theatrics cde and own up to the role you and your fellow war veterans played in making a monster out of old Bob when it was in your favor. You cannot even offer a coherent and genuine apology to the people of Zimbabwe after what the war veterans have been doing to ordinary peace loving Zimbabweans since 1998. Its still all about you and your fellow veterans, the povo do not feature in your imagination as equal stake holders. You might have fought in the liberation struggle but guess what -you just don’t own any part of the country any more than any other citizen. Get a life old-timer

  • Hahaha nhasi vanhu vakuru makutaura zvenyu zvekutii heeee ndaimupa sadza rangu heeee ndakamupa mahewu angu, Mubvunzo wangu ndewekuti pamaidya muchiguta muri ku Zanu maidii kuzvitaura, nhasi waitwa yeCondom yekushandiswa wotsvetwa kwakedero uko wakufamba uchiti dai pasina ini dai ane chirwere iwe wakashandiswa kuvhariswa chirwere, Isu tobva takutaurira chokwadi kuti vakawandawo vatakapa sadza iroro but hatizvitaure isu, Iwe Mutsvangwa,vamunoti Mnangagwa mhondi iya inobva Malawi yamunoti mugabe nehure rake humhata hwenyu hwakaita tisvike nyika dzirikure dzekuti ukati ndinobva kuZimbabwe vamwe vanotokubvunza kuti Zimbabwe yekupi iyoyo kkk oti yaMgabe ndokuti vatoiziva

  • War vets are the dumbest ppl n Zimbabwe. When they see a car moving they’ll shout mavhiri ari kutenderera

    • Kkkkkkkkkkkkkk hahahahahahaa you made me laugh big time

  • Anenzara mutsvangwa uyu mupei sadza adye

  • Dai kwambonaya kwapisa zvokuti.

  • Kkkkkk ndokuti mudzidze ..now look wer de goblin I now

  • Why was everyone refusing to share with him?

  • Mr. Ngungumbane

    You once said Joyce never shot a helicopter. Sour grapes bambo.

    • mabwe

      Sour grapes in what way? I don’t understand you bro

  • They made him a Super human so they must deal with him. How could they put such an embecile as their leader? Were sober minded cadres finished? Rex Nhongo and company must be questioned even in their graves why they chose a devil like robert to take charge of our beautiful country? We are waiting for true comrades to confront grace and robert and tell them to pack and go to Zvimba if not Chikurubi/Guantanamo.

    • True real comrades ! to tell him face to face, not cowards!!

  • Whats MDC about that

  • soldier

    So Jonso was correct when he said this Mutsvangwa idiot was busy stealing pants during the war. I can see now he is talking of food because he was a waiter, that is why he was serving Bob with food. Let him be told squarely that Grace like any other citizen is also entitled to contest elections and if she wins so be it. What he forgets is that his wife is also a senator, So is she a senator by marriage certificate? Lacoste also made sure that his wife took over from him when he was elevated to VP, WASNT’T it by marraige certificate? nonsense ! Bring back all those monyes you, chiwenga and lacoste looted.

    • museyamwa

      if you cannot discern that this is bedroom coup,then you have a serious problem.Ed also has the right to aspire to be President so whats your point.Genuine cadres are being dumped for bootlickers to pamper Mugabe’s ego.

      • nelson ndlovu

        the problem with Mnangagwa’s scenerio is that he can reincarnate only from a ZPF pedestal and nothing else. opposition pedestal is oversubscribed. after Mugabe, Grace can push the blame of the ills of Gukurahundi squarely on Mnangagwa and absolve her husband. Mnangagwa and his cabal have not preempted her on this. Johnathan Moyo is settling old scores , MLEVU his father currently lies in a mass grave courtesy of Lacoste. do you think he would continue smiling at him. talk of destroying ZPF from within-this is what this son of Matabele has done-mission accomplished. Johno is next to be fired but unlike Mnangagwa he will get fired after delivering his objective-he will rest satisfied and has no need to call a press conference outside borders. before getting sacked he will ensure Mlevu is decently buried and on that function people will be reminded of Mnangagwa’s role not Mugabe’s in the demise of 20 000 Matabeles. if I were Mnangagwa and cabal I would start with image sprucing before swearing at grapes that are not within reach. inasmuch as Grace will find the going tough after the angels accompany Bob Mnangagwa would have found it tough to live with the stark reality that he was the butcher of Matabeleland.

        • max moyo

          that is exactly the future mnangagwa is facing (carrying the gukurahundi cross alone) unless he comes out pre-emptively and confesses all about gukurahundi; asks for forgiveness and tell us how they rigged 2008 and 2013 elections. He still has an amazing chance at personal redemption. The offer is wide open to him for the next little while.

        • mafirakureva

          If it was sending people to ICC Mugabe was definitely going to also stand trial. He was the President, he was in charge. The one who was the minister of defense during that time also would go to hague. Mugabe was the master mind of gukurahundi . We should not in anyway divorce Mugabe from this issue. Jonso is acting i agree coz he also want Mugabe to suffer.

      • Yahwe

        There’s absolutely nothing genuine about being a Zanu pf cadre. All in Zanu pf are there for survival, save for a few morons who truly got indoctrinated. If you enjoy Zanu pf until getting fired, you are actually worst than because he is Zanu pf and can’t resign from himself.

      • Smoothy1

        Boss, it’s not bootlicking anymore, it’s now called booteating. It will then emerge from the bottom spotless. Just as in dry cleaning. They are now pa different levels.

  • Vanovukura vukurai henyu isu tichingotonga tichitonga tichitonga kkkkkkkklk wonders shall never end!

  • I like the tactics of Bob he never ceases to amaze me
    He use you and use you after all he dumps you and you become a laughing stock and him he keeps on plundering

    • But his end is near. Ukaona ngoma yoririsa yaakuda kudambuka. Mark my words here. I am smelling someone’s death is near. He will not even get sick. He will be killed by others. Just wait and see. You will remember me when its happen.

    • Do i feed on his tactics u pple are foolish worse than mwana we grade one

  • Zvinonzi Agota moto wembava?. U took colonial powers from the ueropians and used it against the same people u sout to fight for. but then u led us to hunger poverty and humility to the world. Tell me what will we tell our kids that we let a 93 year old teacher to ruine our economy? its so sad cause they are people who belive zimbabwe will be a colony #bullshit# we cant move on to a new world era because of these dynasors .

  • Mutsvangwa, why don’t you tell the PEOPLE why no one wanted to give him food? “Where is the leader?”?

  • Ibenzi

  • Kkkk puppies wont open their eyes on da same day

  • Unity of purpose that’s all what we need. Everything else is vain. We have seen enough poverty that we cannot pass this limit.

  • Mutsvangwa is Preaching to the Converted.Pretty much saying what many have been saying for ages.Anyways,I enjoyed his saying about Puppies not opening their eyes on the same day.lol! That is vintage Mutsvangwa right there.lol!

  • Tsitsi dzino tsikirira dai musina

  • Too late for tears now somebody has already taken ur place guys pataikudai maitifuratira parizvino takumhanya naamai sorry guys

  • Rwendo

    In 1980 there were some 70, 000 ZANLA and ZIPRA combatants of which 43K went into some form of employment, military or otherwise, 14K reportedly formed co-ops (then) or went for further education/training while the remaining 13K were registered as unemployed. There will have been significant shifts in the status of these vet statistics and a sizeable number will have died, retired or emigrated.

    But the question is which war vets is Mutsvangwa’s organization representing, how many and what percentage of the whole? I would wager it is a minority and that there is a silent majority now embedded within society and various institutions, many of whom have been disturbed by the activities of the vocal group, over the past 17 years.

    • nelson ndlovu

      true, because the definition of warvet is authored by ZPF.

    • tamama Ndimugabe

      indeed

  • nothing to comment now zvese marewa warume mhata iyi inonzi mutsvangwa hainzwe wakadirwa mvura inowawa last year kuudzwa kuti murimbwa asi the following morning woti morgan mutengesi zvino nhasi nyika yopfekedzwa mapedz ekumwedzi ndiani uyo isu we don’t support you’

  • Anything wrong with people changing?Leave Mutsvangwa alone …In the Bible even the evil Saul changed to a a good man exactly on his way to Damascus to punish and cause havock on Gods people …and he became the great Paul…Let Mutsvangwa and his gang of War Vets do what they feel is right .

    • Lyk nw they have changed y didnt they talk bout this whilst stil party members shame on u and mutsvangwa

    • Inzara yakuvaitisa noise vana Mutsvangwa ava

  • Lazy party timers nxaa

  • nelson ndlovu

    true to Mutsvanga’s words ZPF supporters are, what Babu Owino called Uhuru Kenyata,’mtoto wambwa’-puppies. their only strange characteristics is that it took them 37 years kusvinura or kusunura whichever thona tribe or dialect it suits.

  • Who cares. Zanu Pf terrorised and killed poor people. I won’t shed any tears for the Crocodile. Pedzeranai ikoko.

  • ED is a leader, a man of unquestionable courage n loyalty coz he served Mugabe for 50 long years n he… https://t.co/HflPllH3ft

  • but these guyz have been with Mugabe for a very long time helping in making him what he is today now that they have been fired by him they start to say all these things makuwara mugabe arrest these fools finish them off zim doesnt need them

  • Of all the places why choose Sandton? Come to state House and say out loud your concerns if you still have balls. Whether you gave Mugabe food or not we are not worried about it. Matakadya kare haanyaradzi mwana. Why are you crying loudest than the bereaved?
