Mnangagwa Defends Congress, Calls Mutasa A Sick Man

Acting President Emmerson Mnangagwa has dismissed former Zanu PF Secretary for Administration Didymus Mutasa as a sick man who cannot be taken seriously.

Mnangagwa who was speaking at the Zanu PF Midlands Provincial Coordinating Committee in Gweru said contrary to Mutasa’s misplaced sentiments, the 6th National People’s Congress was democratic.

Mutasa’s political career continues to disintegrate with the Acting President Mnangagwa being the latest to tear into his battered image.

Mnangagwa described Mutasa as a sick man who is discrediting the congress despite inviting the people himself.

 “No one is above the party’s constitution and principles…loyalty and perseverance are key for one to rise in Zanu PF,” said Mnangagwa.

Mutasa’s constituency wants him recalled while Manicaland province wants him expelled from the party.

Zanu PF National Political Commissar Saviour Kasukuwere told the PCC the politburo will not stand in the way of people’s wishes.

Meanwhile,Mnangagwa said the party should demonstrate unity at the by-elections by winning resoundingly.

Elections will be held in Chirumanzu-Zibagwe constituency which fell vacant after its legislator Cde Mnangagwa was elevated to be vice president.


The other by-election will be held in Mt Darwin West following former Vice President Dr Joice Mujuru’s removal from government.
