Govt disrespecting Mugabe: Zhuwao

By Blessings Mashaya

Government is ill-treating former president Robert Mugabe, his nephew and former Public Service minister Patrick Zhuwao has sensationally said. In an interview with Voice of America (Voa) on Friday Zhuwao said the government is not respecting Mugabe.

“They are ill-treating the old man, they went to prophets and traditional healers and were told the same that they are ill-treating the old man but they failed to change, they continue to ill-treat the old man.

“We must respect him (Mugabe) he went to war; he was jailed fighting for the people.

“People are saying where is Mugabe? We elected him, but you people in Harare we heard you removed him. I cross in and out of the country on regular basis and from what I heard from the people, they are not happy with this military government. If elections come they will not win.”

Mugabe, who ruled Zimbabwe with an iron fist for close to four decades, “resigned” from the country’s highest office on November 21 last year — hours after Parliament had initiated stunning proceedings to impeach him.

This happened after he had refused to leave office during eight tense days that began with the military intervening in the governance of the country.

Zhuwao insists that Mnangagwa’s government is illegitimate and will not win a free and fair election.

“Obviously, we will go back to Zimbabwe at some point; those who took power do not want to listen to the people. They only decided that they want to rule Zimbabwe and they went on to take guns.

“Our ancestors are not happy with what is happening, this government is illegitimate, they took power by force. I cannot congratulate thieves. He (Mnangagwa) knows that he is unelectable, he was ‘beaten’ in Kwekwe and he ended up by creating his constituency.

“He managed to canvass support from the military for him to grab power. I am not going to work with murderers and those who joined him only think about their stomachs.

“They went to my house with two lorries full of soldiers to interrogate my wife, they knew that I was in Argentina, my farm workers were beaten.”

Zhuwao also said Mnangagwa was the one who backed former first lady Grace to her former position as the secretary for women’s league.

“The truth is going to come out. Our country has many youths and we must give them opportunities. Elections are coming you are going to see the truth. In a free and fair election Mnangagwa will not get 15 percent.”

Zhuwao’s sentiments on Mugabe come after government last week announced that: “The president, in terms of section 3(1) of the Presidential Pension and Retirement Benefits Act, hereby makes the following notice: “A former president of Zimbabwe, who has at any time since the 31st December 1987, been president of Zimbabwe for at least one full term of office, shall be entitled to the enjoyment of the following services, facilities and allowances — staff (a) the services of — (i) such security personnel as may be determined by the president, but no less than six, and to be increased by such number as may be determined by the president whenever and for such period as the need arises; and (ii) two drivers and (iii) two private secretaries; and (iv) two aide-de-camp officers or personal assistants; and (v) two office attendants.”

Mugabe and Grace are also entitled to diplomatic passports and private, first class international air travel up-to a maximum of four trips per year.

The nonagenarian will also receive a Mercedes Benz S500 series or any equivalent vehicle, one four-wheel drive station wagon or an equivalent vehicle, and one pick up van. Apart from maintaining and fuelling the vehicles, the government will also be obliged to replace all the vehicles after five years.

The 93-year-old also has the option of maintaining his long motorcade after the government notified that Mugabe was entitled to the provision of “such adequate number of vehicles as may be determined by the president and which must be put at the disposal of the security personnel and other staff serving the former president”.

Mugabe will also be entitled to a landline telephone, a cellphone, two computers and “such other office equipment and materials as may be determined by the president”.

In terms of accommodation, the former Zanu PF supremo will be provided with “a fully furnished official residence at any place in Harare”.

The housing benefits will also include any such befitting request made by Mugabe within two months of leaving office. According to the gazette, Mugabe may request the construction of a single private residence at any place of his choice in Zimbabwe, and it will be granted.

If he so chooses, he can also request for the payment of a lump sum which is equal or equivalent to the value of the private residence he so desires. DailyNews

    • Dennis Madzingo ndi My President’s wife . And it’s the book of history richaverengwa na Granddaughter wako

    • Yes in that history book it will be stated that the evil dictator who misruled Zimbabwe for 37 years was brought down by his stupid bitchy wife. How about that???

    • Dennis Madzingo google and listen up other african countries what they say about him.

    • I’m a Zimbabwean and don’t give a toss about what other African countries think of him. I know what Zimbabweans think of him and that’s what matters to me. Zimbabweans know Mugabe is an evil monster who should be at Chikurubi now.

  • ana zhuwao zvakurwadza ka nekuti zvakwevamwe manje mupfana uno mama chete tafanana manje wato kwiri kwiri kwauri ikoko futseki

  • Kana basa yapera rapera varume. Was is not is.let him enjoy the 15billion

  • Respecting is earned

  • You should come and stand before us neither in shame nor in arrogance but deeply conscious of your responsibilities during Mugabe era.A snake is the only animal that we were taught not to forgive according to the bible.
    A snake being evil from creation at times shades its skin looking for appreciation in society so what kind of man are you if a snake has manners better than you.
    Learn to respect Zimbabwe and its people.I love zimbabwe and am proudly zimbabwean

  • iwe Zhuwawo pfutseke mhani chimbotirega timbopa ED mukana iwe enda kuna mbuya vako DR stop it munobika ice cream kumazowe

Hospitals depended on donors for medication when the Mugabe government was buying top of the range SUVs for ministers and other officials. Those Zimbabweans still yearning for a Mugabe government are either beneficiaries of his cronyism or simply brain washed!!!

  • razor blade

    Can someone stop this shameless idiot Patrick Zhuwaro. Matibili may have contributed to our independence but he went on to abuse and murder citizens, rig elections, mismanage our country, loot and practice corruption like never before. So regardless of how he went out of power it was long overdue and well deserved. To hell with Zhuwaro or whatever his name is. Majority of Zim made their voices clear by freely coming out in unprecedented numbers to celebrate the end of Matibili era. Indeed that was a good statement on how we felt about the useless evil goblin.
    Good riddance to evil Matibili and his puppets!!
