Zanu (PF) supporters walk out on Grace

via Zanu (PF) supporters walk out on Grace 9 October 2014

Scores of people walked out on President Robert Mugabe’s wife Grace as she threatened to dump all Zanu PF stalwarts appointed into senior positions by her husband.

In the midst of her address they started streaming out of Mucheke stadium, the venue of her rally, in protest over her attack on some senior Zanu PF stalwarts. She also denounced the former Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai.

“We started moving out of the stadium because she was now attacking people as well as denouncing the opposition when we thought she was going to talk of unemployment and ways of improving our tattered economy,”said Atinos Mutasa.

“We had waited for a long time to listen to her address and when she stood up we thought she was going to tackle the fundamentals of our ailing economy but to our surprise she just behaved like her husband who is known for attacking personalities instead of coming up with ways of fixing our economy,” said Mutasa.

A student at a local high school who also walked out on the president’s wife before she had finished her speech told The Zimbabwean that they were forced as students by their teachers to attend and therefore she was not even interested in Dr Mugabe’s speech.

“Our teachers forced us to attend so we just did that and when we realised that some people were streaming out we took advantage of that and also walked out,” she said.

Grace Mugabe took a swipe at some senior party members who fane factionalism and warned that they will soon be dumped.

“Remember you are appointed by the president and most of the time we see you coming to President Mugabe to take advice and if you do not listen you will regret next time,” she said.

“If you are rendered jobless you will be shocked and be warned you will be affected by stroke,” she added. “You have the tendency of buying people using cash to follow you but if you are rendered jobless where will you get the money from?” asked the first lady.

Earlier on Mugabe had told about 15 000 party supporters bussed from all corners of Masvingo province that as a women she will take on the baton because her husband and the people mentored her.

“We can take over these senior positions because as women we are many,” she said. “I heard some of you saying that they used to see me with my husband yes but remember those days I was just quiet because I was learning the ropes like a child,”she said.

“Now I am old enough and my power lies in you and the president and therefore I am not ashamed to take any position of leadership,” said Mugabe.

      Meanwhile Grace is preOccupied by taking over from the husband to safeguard their loot. Mnangagwa attends the Midlands and Masvingo rallies whereas Mutasa attends the Manicaland rallies. Mai Mujuru is quiet as a mouse. Grace is talking about taking power and not addressing the economic challenges like 96% unemployment, Electric Power Massive shortages, Poor health delivering system…poor remuneration for the few that are employed. Yes You Can Not Rig The Economy!!!!

    Mugabe created these factions so that he elevates Grace to unite them. I doubt if this will work. Remember how he retired Mujuru and Tungamirayi? He made them believe that he wants to retire so he leaves them in good business ventures. He just did not trust them in the security anymore.

    The explosion is very near. When the husband gets quiet there is something not right here. Are they limiting his TV time or is he too tired to listen to the babblings of his wife.

    I have mentioned this before the plan is going according to plan and you just wait and see. All these people making noise about Grace not taking over or etc remember Zanu does not win elections it rigs them whether its Robert, Grace, Joice or Munangagwa (I can never remember his first name). Everyone seems to forget that Mugabe has just been a figurehead for a long time and those who are really in power are somewhere else.Grace will use her surname to Mugabe’s name is more familiar to Zimbabweans than anyone else’s so the idea is to utilise that.

    Say all the negative things you can dream of, denigrate her in any imagined way, wear blinkers and pretend all you want – the truth is that Dr. Grace Mugabe has thwarted Western puppets’ ambitions to rule Zimbabwe. It is now as clear and certain as the sun will come out tomorrow that America’s sponsored puppet will not make it, and that alone is worth celebrating. I feel like the devil has been checked in its truck.

    The party is on its last legs. The need to protect the ‘gains of liberation’ is more ardent now as the leader totters into his twilight. None of the remaining thieves, long divided by the wily dictator as they jostled for favoured status, trusts his/her colleagues post-Robert Mugabe. Dr Grace Mugabe’s debut merely exposes the decay inside. Bedding a president does not correlate with succeeding him. She is desperate and terrified of what might be a very long, lonely future atop a pile of loot. The guilty are afraid. She frantically yells and throws stones into dark bushes to intimidate imagined dangers. You must feel for the girl. Clever people know their status. Stupid people don’t. Robert will leave no legacy to speak of. Soon we will pick up the pieces and thaw our long-frozen lives.

    Why avoiding addressing her rally in Bulawayo? From Gwelu she goes back to Harare. Did they warn her before hand? I wait to see the reception she will get there. That is not Zanu territory.

    Worse things will happen before the worst finally comes. Whoever imagined that Mugabe would just give his wife a PH Deegre from UZ just like pulling off a leaf from a tree and pass it on? She is going to replace him for sure. Why does she attack unknown enemies of Mugabe within the party yet all of them say he is their Savior? She claims that they are telling lies. They do not like him. The most pleasing thing would have been to read that the entire stadium walked out and not just a few individuals.

    Thank you Grace for siding with us the opposition. So far you have done a sterling job in destroying your husband’s party. Continue the good work. We off the opposition seek the downfall of Zpf, likewise you are also seeking the downfall of your husband’s party. It makes our work as opposition a lot easier. When we become a government after the next elections, we shall reward you handsomely. Ramba wakadaro usanete. Your success will be measured by the number of people who walk out on you in your current round of rallies.

    If ever there was doubt that she is an air head now we have concrete evidence. She has nothing,nothing whatsoever intelligent to say. I for one would spent all day everyday of the week watching paint dry than listen to the inane uninspiring twaddle that comes out of her mouth. She is as dull as ditch water.
