MP chides war vets

HIGHFIELD West MP Psychology Maziwisa (Zanu PF) yesterday savaged “uneducated war veterans” for threatening a showdown with party leader President Robert Mugabe and challenged them for a physical confrontation.

BY Everson Mushava

Maziwisa, a self-confessed G40 faction member, made the remarks after Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association spokesperson Douglas Mahiya threatened to doorstep and embarrass Mugabe at their Thursday meeting in Harare.

“We are sick and tired of people who think the President must bow down to them all the time. Who the hell do they think they are?” Maziwisa said.

“Make no mistake, we respect those who fought to bring about the independence of this country, but we equally expect them to respect our party constitution and especially our President. Any insult to the President is an insult to all patriotic Zimbabweans.”

He added: Will they win the war? They must refuse to be used or soon we will clash with them and it is not going to be a pleasant sight at all. If they think that these are just empty words, I dare them to utter just one more word of disrespect towards President Mugabe and see if all hell will not break loose.”

Maziwisa is not the first one to threaten the war veterans.

Zanu PF deputy secretary for youth affairs Kudzai Chipanga in February called youths to mobilise and prepare for war with war veterans who continued to “disrespect” Mugabe and his wife First Lady Grace Mugabe.

Maziwisa said: “But that is all the more reason why they should learn to shut up when the learned are talking.”

Mahiya yesterday refused to comment, saying Maziwisa was entitled to his views.

    Someone needs to make it clear to this idiot MP from the so called G40 Faction. That if it was not for those so called uneducated War Vets. Your disrespectful young Ass would not have an education today as the white people didn’t want you to have. You have this education not because of what your President did, but only because of what War Vets did give their lives for you disrespectful young ungrateful ass. Your President never fought on day in any battle for liberation of this country. He was not even a soldier. His claim he spent 10 years in prison while those War Vets men and women shed their blood for the liberation of Zimbabwe. These are the facts. How many times have your President met with his liberators over the past 36 years to help these hero’s. This will be only the second time in 36 years. They get nothing from this government as they suffer through this life of freedom that they gave this country. Will your President appoints Ministers in key positions and loot the country and live lavish life styles. While those, as you say uneducated Vets suffer and die in poverty. Your President should be on his hands and knees. As he owes his position to these vets. And the only reason that the G40 kisses the President Ass is to stay in good grace with him as those seek higher positions so they can live lavish life styles so the people of this country can go on and continue suffering. How do you open your mouth and disrespect an Elder for any reason. You fight for the respect of your President. But your President has never fought for those freedom fighter who mad that position he stands in possible for him. While Bob worship the God of his oppressors and has turned his back on his own ancestors. This is why this country is screwed up. A leader that teaches his people to worship a white man God. Really. How can a Slave and a Slave Master worship the same God. He hates white people so much, but he and his wife teaches the people yo now down to your enemies God. This is why this country continues to suffer. It is said God created man in his own image. So why do you not have the image of God in your image as a black person. But in this country you have the image of a white man as your God? And you wonder why this country and our people world wide still are suffering. You should always remember yesterday. As it will be the only road for you today and have a future for your children tomorrow. Loyalty to only an individual only creates an idol. Loyalty to your people and culture gets you the blessing of the Ancestors. Use some of that education that others dead for you to get. And start showing respect to all your Elders. Because in the end. Those are the only Gods that will save you.

        You are absolutely correct. The truth hurt people who try to deceive the people. Best they know their time is running sort. They just want to rob the people some more to secure their worthless families when Bob is gone. Vets have nothing from this government but 35 years of suffering. It is time for a change.

    True about disrespecting all who 52years old and above who liberated Zimbabwe in different roles. God however has no colour. The whites were marketing themselves and liken their melanin free skin to the Almighty. As for nonsense Grace’s G40 and Zim1, more fire from all liberators. We can’t continue to be in the economic wilderness for 40 years(G40) due to their madness. Let the worst looters after the top 2 and Gono namely Chombo and Mpofu protect the million youth march with our ZRP while we organise a 14million march. Hell will break loose and there will be no GOVERNMENT to talk about if anyone stops IT. Wait and see. I travelled the width and breath of Zim mukaona vokumusha voti zvakwanavo aah zvanyanya kuipa. Pack your bags muende kuIsland yenyu kuMalaysia pachinenguva. You will surely fit all looters!!! VaChihera: Professor

    Please don’t put God into the same box as us mortals. If you read the bible you will see that the book has no bias towards one colour or another. It is definitely not a “white mans” God. There is not one reference in the book to this opinion. Read what Jesus has to say about it. There is no proof as to what colour he was. It is totally irrelevant to God anyway and should be irrelevant to us.

      I have done more for this country than any of these thieves. Save your emotional outrage for a fools who don’t know the truth. At any case fear are for those who do not want freedom. So keep your ranting to someone weak. Facts are facts. Unless they are God. They still are boot licking thieves. Deal with the facts, not your emotions.

    Mugabe is important? Who is not? Your brother is not important? Your mother is not important? You wonder if these people who write these things are really Zimbabweans. Everybody is important. Why support imbwa that does not have any heart for its people whatsoever?. We can have new leadership please. With all his failures, he still is more important than the rest of Zim? What makes him more important?

      Importance. Just the sociological teachings of a person. Supported by a lazy mental attitude of dependence of something better. Without actually teaching one to work for things. There are no important people in Zimbabwe at this time. Just a generation passing on its way to change. Patience is the key with reality. All will be well. Incompetence in leadership always pass. The greater picture has always been there. The people.
