Matemadanda attacks Dabengwa,Sibanda

MATEMADANDA-WAR-VET

Victor Matemadanda

 

‘Matemadanda speaks nonsense and is a fraud,’ says Jabulani Sibanda

THE WAR of words between Zanu-PF, Zapu leader Dumiso Dabengwa and former war veterans’ leader Jabulani Sibanda is far from over!

War veterans secretary-general Victor Matemadanda on Tuesday attacked the two accusing them of vilifying the two newly-appointed vice-presidents.

But Dabengwa and Sibanda said Matemadanda a Zanu-PF central committee member is a fraud who spoke nonsense, after attacking the two while addressing war veterans in Zvishavane.

“Topical issues are what we have been hearing from opposition newspapers castigating VP Mphoko; that is Dabengwa and others,” Matemadanda was quoted as saying.

“Some are saying VP Mnangagwa cannot hold this office because he was Security minister.

“They seem not to know that a minister cannot have an individual authority to decide on ministerial issues.” But Dabengwa declined to respond saying he was not Matemadanda’s peer and would not respond to him.

Matemadanda also attacked Sibanda, saying he had misled people when he said they would march to State House to seek audience with Mugabe. He said Sibanda took advantage of civilians’ ignorance and misled them about the march, which he described as blasphemy.

Sibanda like Dabengwa also refused to be drawn into a war of words with Matemadanda.

Uproar over woman stripping Harare touts

Civic society organisations have called on law enforcement authorities to investigate and bring to book those involved in the sexual abuse of a woman at a commuter omnibus terminus in Harare yesterday.
The inhuman sexual abuse and stripping of a woman by suspected touts at a Harare commuter bus rank has drawn the ire of women groups who have called on law enforcement authorities to bring the culprits to book.

The Women’s Coalition in Zimbabwe (WCZ) called for a media conference in Harare where they urged the police to investigate and arrest such perverts as the number of similar cases are increasing.

Legal experts say the case is a classic example which calls for both criminal and civil proceedings which the victim is entitled to pursue.

Manwhile, the Zimbabwe Republic Police is appealing for information, which may lead to the identification of accused persons who molested the young woman whom they stripped and humiliated accusing her of being indecently dressed.

Mugabe named Mnangagwa and Mphoko as his deputies

Emmerson Mnangagwa

Harare – Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe on Wednesday named hardliner Emmerson Mnangagwa as his vice president, putting the former justice minister in pole position to succeed him.

Mugabe announced the appointment at party headquarters to loud applause, days after sacking one-time presidential hopeful turned rival Joice Mujuru as vice president.

Nicknamed “Ngwena” (The Crocodile) because of his ruthlessness, Mnangagwa has held various senior posts in the country’s defence and internal security apparatus.

He is also reputed to one of the richest men in the country.

The 68-year-old played a critical role in Mugabe’s crackdown against opposition supporters that claimed thousands of lives in the 1980s, and became internationally known as “Gukurahundi.”

Mnangagwa also helped Mugabe hold on to power during 2008 elections, which the opposition won in the first round, but which were in the second round boycotted because of widespread intimidation and violence.

On Wednesday 90-year-old Mugabe also named former diplomat Phelekezela Mphoko to the largely symbolic post of second vice president.

“There are two vice-presidents. From the former ZANU we have Emmerson Mnangagwa,” Mugabe said. “We say congratulations to him.”

“From the former ZAPU we have Phelekezela Mphoko.”

The ruling ZANU-PF is an amalgam of two independence struggle parties, but Mugabe’s ZANU faction has long been dominant.

Family secure

The two appointments cap Mugabe’s recent purge of rivals, a bid to end fierce infighting over who will take over from him.

Analysts say Mugabe is increasingly concerned with making sure his family is secure after he steps down or leaves power.

As part of that purge Mugabe on Tuesday announced the sacking of Mujuru and eight ministers.

He said the replacement ministers will be announced soon, “but the vice-presidents are incumbent. These I would like to be sworn-in on Friday at State House.”

Rumours had swirled that Mugabe may seek to appoint his wife Grace to one of the vice presidential posts, a move commentators saw as unlikely given her recent entry into politics.

In recent months she has been used as Mugabe’s attack dog, hitting out at Mujuru and her supporters as plotting to overthrow the president and alleging dodgy business dealings.

Mugabe fires Vice President and eight Ministers

First Lady Grace Mugabe (far right) is using the “pull her down” tactics to annihilate Vice-President Joice Mujuru (left) from Zanu PF and government

It’s official! President Robert Mugabe has fired his deputy Joice Mujuru and eight ministers accused of being behind a plot to topple him from power.

The official list released Tuesday afternoon shows Mugabe has sacked eight ministers all linked to Mujuru.

Those fired include Presidential Affairs minister Didymus Mutasa who was also party secretary for administration, Labour minister Nicholas Goche, Indigenisation minister Francis Nhema, Higher and Tertiary Education minister Olivia Muchena, ICT minister Webster Shamu (Zanu PF political Commissar) and Mahonaland East Provincial Affairs minister Simbaneuta Mudarikwa.

Earlier reports said Mugabe fired Energy minister Dzikamai Mavhaire and his deputy Munacho Mutezo.

Mujuru received her dismissal letter on Monday night after weeks of accusations that she had led a “treacherous cabal” to try to unseat Mugabe.

Mujuru, in a press statement, on Tuesday blamed “a well-orchestrated smear campaign and gross abuse of state apparatus” that led to the loss of her ruling party post and shook Zimbabwean politics.

Mujuru, who once looked likely to succeed long-ruling Mugabe, has been accused of plotting to assassinate the 90-year-old and removed from the ruling ZANU-PF party’s central committee.

She said she was being victimised after exposing infiltrators conspiring to destroy the party, which has ruled the country since independence in 1980.

“I have become the fly in the web of lies whose final objective is the destruction of ZANU-PF and what it stands for and ultimately the present government,” Mujuru said in a statement.

“A vociferous attempt has been made to portray me as ‘a traitor’, ‘murderer’ and ‘sellout’, yet no iota of evidence has been produced to give credence to the allegations.”

ZANU-PF held an elective congress last week which endorsed Mugabe as president and his wife Grace as head of the women’s wing
