VP yrs most frustrating in my career, Mujuru

VP yrs most frustrating in my career, Mujuru – NewZimbabwe 14/04/2016

ZIMBABWE People First (ZPF) leader, Joice Mujuru, says the years she spent as vice president were the most frustrating of her political career as President Robert Mugabe never listened to her advice and neither did he listen to anyone else.

Mujuru said this Wednesday during a meeting with ZPF Harare province youths. She told the youths that she was guided by traditional and Christian values and, as such, she was not interested in slogans denouncing other people.

“Pasina na Tsvangirai or someone like that means that person must die. This is what we were taught during the liberation war training and it was meant for the people that we were fighting against and was never meant to be repeated later.

“This is why I am appealing to all the youths who are gathered here to desist from uttering slogans such as being used by Zanu PF. Never use such slogans; they promote hate and disharmony within the country.”

Mujuru also said that she was never part of any Zanu PF political dirty games that were played against opposition leaders and their followers.

She also told the youths that between April and June ZPF will be registering new members. Mujuru said a membership card similar to a visa card with a chip was being designed and would be unveiled soon.

“In July, there shall be ward elections followed by elections at constituency level in August; come September provincial polls and then October elective congress,” said Mujuru.

The former Zanu PF number two was sacked from the ruling party in December 2014 during the run up to the party’s congress. She alongside other Zanu PF stalwarts, were fired on allegations of plotting to remove Mugabe from power, witchcraft and fanning factionalism.

    “Pasina na Tsvangirai or someone like that means that person must die. This is what we were taught during the liberation war training and it was meant for the people that we were fighting against and was never meant to be repeated later….”

    So it took, not only 35 yrs, but herself(Mujuru) being fired to realize that zanu pf was a murderous party that thrives on shedding innocent blood; ehee?

    If anything, can anyone with any shred of principle associate with a bloodsucking vampire regime for over a generation; and only to turn around after being forcefully ejected from the organization & proclaim innocence with a straight face?

    Surely this is hogwash. Nxaaaa!

      You have to realise, Mapingu, that Mai Mujuru is not an intelligent person, which is why it is impossible for her to understand that others are able to see through her deceptions.

      Unfortunately, however, too many fools appear to be supporting her, so we might end up with another Zanu PF with the letters transposed.

    We lose our objectivity when we do not take general statements for what they are. It is a fact, hate speech is bad. You don’t have to like or hate Mai Mujuru, in order to realize that ‘down with so and so’ epitomizes hate speech.

    We do not all have to support Mujuru, it’s not even desirable that we do so if democratization is our goal. What is important is to realize the critical role she can play, i.e., weaken and dismantle the ZunuPF hegemony. With Morgan now showing some teeth these are politically exciting times for our country. We the ordinary folk need to encourage the politicians as much as we can with the objective to develop a better Zimbabwe. Dwelling on the past will not solve anything. Looking for saints among our politicians will not help either as none exist. In the case of Mujuru, it may help to remind ourselves that some of the most successful reformers emerged from dubious and rotten systems – think of Ataturk and the Ottomans, Deng after the chaos of Mao and, closer to home, Mwanawasa after the corruption of Chiluba. Let’s give all democratic forces a chance and let the baggage they carry decide their fate at the polls.
