Zanu Pf Youth Blast ‘Old Mugabe’ For ‘Hallucinations’
The fallen Zanu pf icon, former President Robert Mugabe’s is now history and we will not dare listen to his rantings, ruling party’s youth league member has said.
Addressing journalists, politburo deputy secretary for youth affairs Lewis Matutu said Mugabe failed Zanu PF and the country, adding his dismissal from power was been long overdue.
“It’s a waste of time to talk about Mugabe. He is old and at 94 nobody will listen to his hallucinations,” Matutu said.
“We will not be worried even if Mugabe were to associate himself with the MDC-T, we will not waste our time with him. In the early years of independence, he did some good things, but lost his way after marrying a young wife who was controlling him,” the youth league deputy secretary said.
Zanu PF youth league secretary for administration, Tendai Chirau concurred with Matutu adding that Mugabe belonged to the past.
“Mugabe is the past and Cde Mnangagwa is the future. Zanu PF is and was not a family pet project owned by Mugabe. It is a people’s project that is moving forward. People will come and go but the party will remain,” he said.
“Every Zimbabwean was fed up with Mugabe and Mnangagwa was the one who removed the old leader. Youths owe him their vote, if not for anything, then for that alone. The independence we will be celebrating this week is two-fold, freedom from colonial rule and from Mugabe.
“Mnangagwa has the future of the youths at heart and has humbled himself to return the country to the table of nations where it belongs rather than shouting at everyone,” Matutu said.
It is reported that Mugabe turned Zimbabwe into basket case after adopting controversial policies that brought a once thriving economy to its knees.
