Mutasa dismisses ‘absurd’ hearing

via Mutasa dismisses ‘absurd’ hearing – NewsDay January 30, 2015

FORMER Zanu PF secretary for administration Didymus Mutasa has scoffed at plans by the party’s politburo to drag him to a disciplinary hearing over his alleged acts of misconduct, saying he did not recognise the “so-called disciplinary team” appointed to preside over this case.

The politburo on Wednesday set up a six-member disciplinary committee chaired by Vice-President Phelekezela Mphoko to grill Mutasa for allegedly threatening to take Zanu PF to court and roping in Sadc and the African Union in a bid to seek nullification of the party’s December congress resolutions.

Former Zanu PF spokesperson Rugare Gumbo, who spoke on behalf of Mutasa, yesterday described the committee as illegal.

“As far as we are concerned and as far as he is concerned, the so-called team is illegal and he does not recognise the congress that took place in December,” Gumbo said.

Other members of the committee include First Lady Grace Mugabe, political commissar Saviour Kasukuwere, legal affairs secretary Patrick Chinamasa, Youth League secretary Pupurai Togarepi and secretary for security Kembo Mohadi.

“His (Mutasa’s) position is very clear that he doesn’t recognise the congress because it was done illegally and there is little they can do. That will remain his position until things are rectified,” Gumbo said.

“Chinamasa has made his position known on Mutasa and regards him as an enemy. He has his position already. There is also Grace, who is the President’s wife, and how can Mutasa be tried by the President’s wife? Kasukuwere has made public statements against Mutasa and it doesn’t work.”

While Kasukuwere, Grace and Togarepi have publicly denounced Mutasa and labelled him “Gamatox”, Chinamasa went a step further and moved a motion in Manicaland last weekend calling for Mutasa’s expulsion.

Gumbo added that preparations of Mutasa’s court challenge of the congress resolutions were at an advanced stage.

He, however, declined to reveal when they would file the court papers.

    So Mugabe is worried though publicly he talks tough and vomits insults.
    A quote from Mutasa on interview with SA Mail&Guardian.. ‘Do you
    regret any policies during the time you were in government? ‘’In a way, yes. We have taken away
    people’s land and we are not making good use of those farms.
    When you see how many
    Zimbabweans are in South Africa, it’s millions. What are they going there for? It’s work. We draw up fantastic blueprints but with no money to achieve them. It makes me very sad. I have always wondered about our Look East policy that confines Zimbabwe to
    Russia and China. You then
    see how faulty some of our policies are. You never think about them clearly and they are given to you in a memorandum and when you meet your Cabinet and politburo
    colleagues to discuss them, you are told there is no time and we move to other issues’’.
    This explains why his group has been ditched by the party, the guys were not in favour of what the
    party and government are doing.
    Hence they were labelled as plotting to kill Mugarbage. Undemocratic Mugarbage, truth will prevail and you will be seriously exposed no matter how much people think you are wily. There is an adage that goes..’You can fool some people most of the time, you can fool some people some of the times, but you can never fool all people all the time’ and this is the issue you faced with. You fooled people all along but some of your own have said no to your fooling.

    haha!!! kambe umuntu omdala angahlaliswa phansi ngokungabantwana lokhu. Dont they even have shame considering that all the charges are trumped up and obviously ridiculous. If I were Mutasa I would NOT even dignify the nonsense by going. They have made up their minds anyways and declared him guilty so he should not further embarass himself. Not that I support him in any way as this is only a portion of the results of the bitter concoction that he helped cook himself for all these years.

    Interestingly Mutasa and Gumbo are now crying illegeal, illegal. Yet they were dismissing Chamatama whenever he cried “illegal”. It seems these 2 buffoons forget how their party works, Zanu does not recognise any laws therefore nothing is legal or illegal in their eyes.

    Didmus and Rugare sound pathetic if you ask me.
