Reason Why Energy Mutodi was fired?

Energy Ndombolo Mutodi was born on 4 August 1978. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Zimbabwe (UZ) in 2001. He took studies in defence management from the University of Witwatersrand graduating with a certificate. In 2011 he was at UZ doing a Masters Degree in Business Administration.

Energy Mutodi has been hogging the limelight for all sorts of reasons. He has risen in Politics to be a deputy minister of Information.  This was a feat many accomplished politicians have failed to achieve. Some national heroes have laid their heads in their graves without getting a ministerial honor from a sitting president. Such was indeed a great achievement Energy Mutodi achieved.  But who is Energy Mutodi?

Mutodi discharged himself as a busy body. In 2012 Mutodi took up singing and refused to limit himself to one type of music. He put his nose in Rhumba Sungura Gospel Jiti and even country music. He has so far released four albums. Some of the songs that made him popular are Angelina, Chigorodanda and Tozosangana.

Despite his big appetite for everything Mutodi is a politician and belongs to ZANU PF party.  It is however difficult to put Mutodi and reason in one sentence. In his political life Mutodi became well known for his wisdom or lack of it.

Mutodi is a member of the In the 2013 July 31 harmonized elections, he contested during the ZANU PF primaries to be selected to be the ZANU PF member to contest for the Goromonzi South Constituency. However he was defeated by Beatrice Nyamupinga who was selected to be the Member of Parliament during the coveted July 31 elections.

Mutodi prided himself in fiction and during Mujuru battle when it was reported that the then Vice President of Zimbabwe, Joice Mujuru and her allies were planning to assassinate the late President of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, Mutodi produced his own version of the story pinning Mujuru and her allies.

He claimed that he conducted his own investigations and discovered that Mujuru who was accused of fanning factionalism within ZANU PF was guilty of hatching a plot to assassinate Mugabe. He stated that, her allies, namely, Nicholas Goche, Tendai Savanhu and Ray Kaukonde met in South Africa where they resolved on how to kill Mugabe with the aid of a group of mercenaries known as Sandline International (formerly known as Executive Outcomes). According to Mutodi, these people devised 3 strategic ways to kill Mugabe. Mutodi was desperate to have President Mugabe in his good books.

Mutodi was to be tossed out of Mugabe’s camp when a photo of him and the then Vice President the now president Cde Mnangagwa emerged where Mutodi was having a toast. Cde Mnangagwa was holding the famous I am the boss mug which was used by Jonathan Moyo to turn Mugabe against Mnangagwa. The mug became the changing point for both Zimbabwe Mutodi and ED.

The G40 cabal used that photo to show that Mnangagwa was honoring presidential ambitions and that Mutodi was seen to be a foot soldier. Mutodi emerged as a supporter of the new faction believed to be led by Mnangagwa called Lacoste. Mutodi openly sided with this faction in its fight against the G40 faction in the race to succeed Mugabe.

So the photo of fate made Mutodi an enemy of choice and he was arrested for crimes ranging from undermining the authority of President Mugabe to fraud. He was once ejected from a rally as he was accused of undermining Mugabe.

So Mutodi by lifting a cup and paused for a photo at the right time Mutodi’s political path changed course.

When President Mnangagwa ascended to the throne Energy Mutodi was rewarded by being appointed the deputy minister of Information. Not later than he was appointed deputy minister did he start digging his own political grave.
