Mugabe reads wrong speech

via Mugabe reads wrong speech – DailyNews Live 15 September 2015

HARARE – President Robert Mugabe on Tuesday read the wrong speech at the State opening of the third session of the 8th Parliament of Zimbabwe.

He repeated a speech he read during the State of the Nation Address (SONA) address last month word for word.

Curiously, Zanu PF MPs cheered the nonagenarian as he read the rehashed speech.

    But he’s been doing that for years, and ZANU-PF never notices!

    Nothing curious about this one. We all know zanu pf MPs are certified clowns & idiots. Actually, it would have been curious if they had behaved otherwise.

    Remember, Muzenda said, “If we tell you to vote for a baboon, you must vote for that baboon”

    They did! LOL

    Unbelievable…impossible…bizarre…we don’t expect better from the ZANU PF MPs…but this incident tells us volumes about Mad Robert himself. Surely anyone with only a quarter of a brain would have realised that…hey…these words somehow sound too familiar. I expect all his idiot followers were too afraid to tell him that he was reading the wrong speech as they did not want to be his next road accident victim.

    God Bless Zimbabwe; Guard her children; Guide her leaders. And give her peace, for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen and Amen again.

    And they’ll be voting for baboons decades on. Nothing new here. Zimbabwe has been a failed state for well over a decade now and nobody seems to notice. Nobody really cares.

    MPs tell Mugabe to stop or postpone the punitive penalties for vehicles that owners have taken off roads because of corrupt police for over two years.

    Where is the opposition to challenge the idiocy we see in our beloved country. Please challenge every stupid act

    Reminds me of that story about the King’s new clothes!

    And who can now say the creature is not totally senile? He couldn’t even remember that he’d read Charamba’s speech before.

    This was even on the BBC news – they must have laughed like mad. The captain of the ship of state is (brain) dead at the wheel but no one wants to admit it.

    someone stole the right speech. Like everything in zimbabwe it was stolen. Probably on sale at ebay.
    Hes been saying the same thing for 35 years and no one noticed before in zimbabwe.
    I could name the topics.
    Gays are bad
    Rhodies ruined the country
    Whites cant own land
    Zimbabwe belongs to the blacks
    Everything going wrong is the wests fault
    Ian Smith stole his speach.
    How mugabe rescued the country and created 2 million jobs the problem is theyre all overseas jobs taken up by zimbabwean leaving zimbabwe
    China will provide a 10 trillion dollar no interest on repayment loan.

    kwv – you are dead wrong about this one. The dictator si brain dead, but so is the crowd around him. How can something like this happened? Rather – since they know nothing and specialize in that – they thought they can get away with it. When it came to light, some mysterious typist is blamed for the gaffe.

    You call that lot capable of governing a country? They cannot even organize a “piss up” in a brewery if you ask me.

      They are not trying to govern the country, They see it as a cash cow and resent every cent of revenue that is not spent on themselves.

    Why is Zimbabwe saddled with a president like this? He cannot do simple things like getting the correct speech.

    What did he think he was going to Parliament for? No wonder why the country in the mess it is.

    When some one is old he/she can easily forget even during the speech. I remember Kamuzu Banda of Malawi when he was on his 90s he used to repeat the same words at his speech, by that time Presidents used not to write speeches protocol Secretary give him the old speech.He was betrayed by his own people. It is a sign that shows that they do not like the old man. Forgive him for he does not know what he was reading.

    One thing people fail to understand is that all politicians are actors with power. They simply stand on a stage and read the speeches that are written for them. Hence why they can’t remember what they just said minutes before. If you the public really mattered to them they would be doing rather than talking.

    Tch,tch,tch,very sad indeed. But on the bright side, someone can now slip him a resignation speech the next time he takes to the podium.

    Observer wandipedza kkkkkkk, yah someone should do that and Zanuoids will still cheer vozobvunzana kuti kwanza kudii? But seriously, its very sad, those in H.E inner circle are the most cruel and abusive of the lot. Forcing the old man to still hold on despite the failing health uroyi chaihwo. Grace and Charamba hamunyari chose. Let the old man go to the Old People’s home and rest with his peers. MPs isn’t there a low to save the nation from the senile octogenarian? What does the constitution say?

    A joke has it that the late Muzenda once compained to his secretary after reading a speech that the article was too long only to be told that he was handed the speech in triplicate which he went on to read all the pages without notice. Mugabe is feared, does this mean the media and other high profile personnel had no copies? How does the state broadcaster canvass for commentators/analysts without an embargoed copy?

    Tell me everything you wish concerning me, but just tell me the truth. President Mugabe your time is over. Take a rest now.
