Joice Mujuru admits that Zim PF members are dying like flies in a glass trap.
“This is the history we are writing today but let me tell you this; there were many of us in People First but some are no longer with us because they passed away,” Mujuru said last week in Gweru.
“We had provincial leaders who were expelled from the party, they got sick because of the way they were treated and they died.
“If those who are alive begin to tell you about our lives, they will tell you that we are living on drugs because of high blood pressure and stress caused by the treatment we got from Zanu PF and its leader.”
Madam, please you are no longer in Zanu PF so you can say the truth! If you were all kicked out of Zanu PF and you all had the means to maintain the same luxurious lifestyles you had all become accustomed to, not one of you would be complaining of stress. You have presided over Zimbabwe’s economic collapse, you were warned of this but you have done nothing for all your 34 years at the heart of government because you thought you were insulated from the economic hardship. Well you were whilst you remained in Zanu PF. The day President Mugabe kicked you out of Zanu PF you knew grinding poverty awaited you.
After decades three course meal and worrying about piling up the weight, a new Mercedes Benz car every three years, multiple farms, etc., etc.; it is very hard to see all the looted wealth disappear like mist under the African morning sun and having to worry about having nothing to eat for the whole day. You people are dying like flies in a glass trap because you cannot cope with the hardships!
“One of the crimes that I was said to have committed when I was in Zanu PF was failing to condemn Tsvangirai and say the slogan ‘Pasi naTsvangirai’. People First and MDC can be compared to puppies of a dog which do not open their eyes and see on the same day.
“Tsvangirai was the first to see what I didn’t see then and now l have opened my eyes and I also see,” said Mujuru.
Nonsense! No puppy in the world takes more than a couple of weeks, at most, after birth to open its eyes. We are to believe that mongrel Zanu PF puppies take 34 years!
For 34 years Mai Mujuru and her Zim PF friends would not see Zanu PF mismanagement, corruption and tyranny much less the tragic economic and human consequences. It was only reality of poverty knocking at their doors, it is now killing them, which finally opened their puppy-eyes.
Whilst you remained a member of Zanu PF and enjoyed your share of the spoils of absolute power you saw nothing wrong with the party’s corrupt and tyrannical rule or the human misery and deaths it brought. It was only after you were booted out of the party and you were exposed to the reality of the economic meltdown, that you opened your eyes and criticized Zanu PF.
Mai Mujuru et al now claim that they are committed to rebuilding the country’s economy from the ruins destruction they helped cause as Zanu PF members. They are not builders, never were, they only claim to do so because they are desperate to get back on the gravy train to escape the poverty. If elected, they will be taking off with the corruption from where they left off when they were booted out of Zanu PF. We would be foolish to elect the same corrupt and incompetent Zanu PF; ZimPF are Zanu PF in all but name.
