MASVINGO — Chenjerai Pamhiri (38), a lecturer at Great Zimbabwe University, who insulted President Robert Mugabe two times has been fired by the state institution.

In a statement published in a local weekly accompanied by his picture, the university said Pamhiri’s contract had been terminated.

“We would like to advise the public that Pamhiri Chenjerai, who was a university employee, in the capacity of teaching assistant, is no longer a member of staff with immediate effect. Great Zimbabwe University disassociates itself completely with any statements, be they political or of any other nature, that he has made in the past or may make to the press in the future.”

Pamhiri was early this month arrested after allegedly labelling Mugabe an “impotent wife snatcher” at Chemberi Bar in Mashava.

In May this year, Pamhiri was sentenced to three months in prison after calling Mugabe “a dirty, rotten old donkey.”

He appealed against both sentence and conviction.

    Well, both statements are true of course. I think he was just stating the obvious, not trying to insult the great leader. It’s too bad that the university cannot support their employees.

    Actually, Mugabe does not seem to have any issues with his potency. Indeed, he seems to enjoy screwing all Zimbabweans on a daily basis!

    The association of Donkeys complained and threatened to go on strike.

    Universities are meant to be about freedom of thought.

      As long as you do things the Zanu-PF way, you can have all the freedom of thought you desire. After all, Zanu owns this country (that is, the parts that our Chinese masters want us to control).
