Mugabe confesses, Zapu makes him ‘cry’

via Bulawayo24 NEWS | Mugabe confesses, Zapu makes him ‘cry’ 22 December 2013

Mugabe today made a passionate plea in Bulawayo to Zapu leader Dumiso Dabengwa to re-join Zanu PF claiming that the defection makes him cry always.

Mugabe said Dabengwa and those that ditched Zanu PF in protest against unfair treatment are disobeying the late Vice President Joshua Nkomo.

Nkomo died on July 1 1999.

“During the struggle you were under his command and you were very loyal to him. Now that he is gone you say the Unity Accord does not work.

“That being disloyal to Umdala Wethu… you make me cry… please come back, come back, and come back to your comrades”.

Dabengwa has maintained that all former Zapu members remaining in Zanu PF were representing their own individual interests.

Mugabe was addressing people who had come to witness the official unveiling of the North Korean curved Nkomo stature.

Nkomo’s daughter, Thandiwe said as the family they are grateful that finally the statue of their father has been unveiled.

She said there were countless challenges they encountered.

The initial statue was pulled down under cover of darkness in 2010 shortly after it had been mounted after Nkomo’s family described it as too small for a man of his stature.

The family alleged that they had not been formally consulted over the type, its characteristics and proposed location.

Civic society groups in Bulawayo joined in the protests criticising the fact that the statue was made by North Koreans, who are linked to training 5 Brigade that committed the massacre of more than 20 000 civilians in Matabeleland and the Midlands during the Gukurahundi era.

    Talk of using the dead to fight the living. Mugabe would always want to surround himself with deadwood of which Dabengwa is not one. He has his own follies though.

    Sculptured in N. Korea, my foot, is Mugabe trying to erase the contributions that country made towards kukarigamombe? Our only hope is that soon we will be unveiling his too.

    I am proud to be a Rhodesian and, until 2000, I was proud to be Zimbabwean. Now that the new Constitution appears to have stripped me of my citizenship, perhaps I should be pleased!

    Mugabe talking about Nkomo today , why ???? Getting old and old , don’t tell us , we have had enough , soon you will meet Nkomo and explain to him as to why you messed up Zimbabwe .

    Dabengwa is a man , this unity accord never worked , never developed Matebeland provinces , its all manipulation , if it was meant for really peace and fairness of the running of the conutry , why don’t we have ZBC at Montrose today- Isaac Tshisa Sibanda , Nonceba Mnkandla etc used to entertain us better in a provincial language , Byo used to shine with the best means of transport , think about ZUPCO ,that bus terminus at the city , where is it today ??? Getting old and clinging on seat , Nkomo is waiting for your explaination .

    Oh bob, you poor sniveling wretched fool, to think that we are going to be taken in by your rediculous “tears”! You have lost all credibility in this country and now you are trying to steal the credibility of Dumiso and ZAPU. You murdered the Ndebele and now you snivel up to these proud people to join you..You are truly sick in the head if you think we will join your goons.

    Since when has Bob been sincere to be taken seriously about his “un-vissible” and. “Mischievous” tears. He’s a murder that’s how we know him. Well done Zapu, this is what Nkomo would have liked it, a multi-party state, contrary to Mugabe’s one party state. Not too long ago Zapu cadres were labelled Dissidents, now he wants them to be his comrades lol, you can’t fool all ppl all times.

      Sir Simba, I guess your real name is Joseph Chinotimba. I can tell from the sh*t you posted above. Please go back to primary school where you missed a lot of classes.

    Inyaya yakanaka, let us build our country together.
    I don’t think RGM was ‘crying’ for the new opposition party ZAPU, but for war veterans whichever opposition party they now belong to – there are a few out there and they know who they are. Any party which purpots to respond to him will be an uninvited respondent- trying to make political capital out of him, he was actually referring to individual war vets- vakarwa hondo. They know what they went through and understand liberation war discipline.
