via Kasukuwere weak in the head, says Mutasa – NewZimbabwe 22/06/2015
FORMER Zanu PF national secretary for administration, Didymus Mutasa, has attacked the party’s political commissar Saviour Kasukuwere describing him as a narrow-minded person.
Mutasa was responding to an attack by Kasukuwere who recently labelled the former intelligence minister a ‘political misfit’ for describing land reform exercise as a mistake.
Kasukuwere told a ZanuPF gathering recently in Chikanga Mutare that Mutasa was a ‘political misfit’ because he was undermining the land reform programme which was carried out by his party to empower the marginalised blacks.
“Mutasa is a political misfit because he is undermining land reform programme which has benefitted landless blacks,” said Kasukuwere.
But Mutasa said he was not moved by Kasukuwere utterances, saying “many small minds have a narrow view and opinions”.
“Why are they saying this now? Why have I become their centre of discussions and meetings in Manicaland?
“I have been a pillar of party stability from 2004-2014. There were none of the current upheavals in the party up until towards their congress,” said Mutasa.
He said the party leadership was busy peddling unfounded lies about him instead of focusing on real issues affecting the country.
“All of a sudden, unfounded lies have started flying around and they think I am a misfit. That does not worry me in anyway,” said Mutasa.
He said he was more than happy that the Zanu PF leadership views him that way because they were “shallow minded”.
With regards to land reform programme, Mutasa said he was not worried because the ruling party was saying the same things which they were criticising him for saying.
“They are saying the same, exactly what they are criticising me for. People like Kasukuwere are destroying the party and its reputation,” said Mutasa.
Mutasa recently criticised the country’s land reform exercise, describing it as a grave mistake which has since plunged the nation into hunger and paralysed the economy.
He said the few blacks who grabbed vast tracks of land formerly owned by white commercial farmers have failed to fully utilise them.
