THE First Lady Amai Grace Mugabe yesterday castigated Mazowe South legislator Cde Fortune Chasi, whom she accused of terrorising her in Mazowe where she runs her Amai Grace Mugabe Children’s Home.
She said Cde Chasi was spreading falsehoods and other unfounded allegations aimed at tarnishing the name of the First Family.

Amai Mugabe made the revelations to thousands of youths who gathered at her children’s home to endorse the Women’s League resolution requesting her to lead the organ.

She said Cde Chasi moved around alleging that President Mugabe and herself wanted to take all the land in Mazowe.

“I must be open and honest,” said Amai Mugabe. “Muno muconstituency muno tina MP munyowani, ini handinyatsomuzivi anonzi (Fortune) Chasi . . .

“Ndakangonzwawo kuti ane mari sitereki saka anenge achienda kumalawyer. Zvazvakaita ndakaita apply pane conservancy iri kuseri uko which was being run by the whites.

“Ndikangoona yakagara, then I applied to use it to raise mari yekuchengeta vana pano apa ndobva ndapiwa tsamba inini. Saka vanhu vakangozvigarisa vaichera chera imomo vakanzi vabude, iye akati ‘muri kuvaburitsirei? Mugabe nemukadzi wake vari kuda kutora land yese’.

“Akaenda kucourt nevanhu vaye kuti kana hazvimboite. Iye akapiwa farm naVa (Martin) Dinha akariramba. Akatengwa nemurungu akapiwa mari akati handiride.”

Amai Mugabe said Cde Chasi also made false allegations that she engineered the eviction of a certain sangoma who was staying at Henderson Farm, yet the sangoma was expelled by the Mashonaland Central leadership.

Amai Mugabe said the sangoma was involved in gold panning at the farm.

She said she had running battles in the area with people who accused her of grabbing land, including a farm belonging to Interfresh.

Amai Mugabe said she applied for some land from the Mashonaland Central leadership and was allocated a portion of Interfresh Farm that was lying idle.

“But mukati medu futi vamwe votuma vanhu kuti endai munoshungurudza mukadzi waMugabe abve ikoko,” she said. “Kwakauya mayouths 300 ndobva vakutanga kungochera mazikomba anenge anokwana musha uno … two weeks later vakauya vave 1 000.”

Speaking at the same occasion, Zanu-PF Secretary for Women’s Affair’s Cde Oppah Muchinguri said she decided to relinquish her post after noticing nasty things that were being done by some party members.

“President vari kuti mafarm ipai ma- youths, ivo vari kutora vachipa vana vavo,” she said. “Migodhi ndeyavo, ma- diamonds ndeavo, fertiliser ndedzavo.

“Mukaona ndasvikawo neWomen’s League kuti kwete nguva yatasvika iyi zvave kutoda Mai kuti vaone zvinhu zvaita musangano, mbavha dzakaitwa nursed naPresident dzakaba mamines, dzakaba mapurazi dzanakirwa zvino dzave nematumbu akadai . . . vave kuda zvino kuti dai President vachibva vachengete loot yavo.”

The function was also attended by Zanu-PF Politburo members Cdes Nicholas Goche, Saviour Kasukuwere, Ednah Madzongwe, Edson Chakanyuka and Patrick Zhuwawo.

    ZANU implodes! You wonder whether there is any opposition in this country, here is a given, a clear opportunity, this is not even a penalty but it’s an own goal by ZANU PF functionaries that can only be disputed by the goal line technology. But Biti Mangomas Tsvangirais are missing this opportunity. Unozodei pakadayi zviri pachena izvi

      Mfundisi,you are wondering why Tsvangirai,Mangoma and Biti are missing in action and not taking advantage of the division in ZANU PF? Here is why,Tsvangirai is busy trying to fundraise for their congress slated, for the month of October.1,5mill is needed to host this congress and so far with 2 months to go he has only managed to raise$260,00.So he is busy scratch his head.Biti and Mangoma are struggling to come up with a name for their faction,and busy trying to ward off, Tsvangirai, who is trying to seize party assets, they took with them when they left. Tsvangirai has also been trying to recall them from parliament without success. So this is the sorry state of opposition parties in this country.This story also proves there is democracy in ZANU PF,pple can take each other to court.Even the first family are not above the law as most of you want the world to believe.The first lady had to apply for land like any other Zimbabwean.

      So if you are honestly saying ZANU implodes,because of internal division, what would be the suitable word to describe the MDC T,where even the speaker of parliament couldn,t figure out who is who? He had to ask them to go to court to try and resolve their differences.How would you describe the situation in MDC T,where one faction claims to have suspended the other and the other one comes back and say they expelled those who are claiming to have suspended them?Doesn,t that sound like the real implosion?How about having one faction at Mandel training holding a hearing to discipline Tsvangirai,while Tsvangirai is at the high court trying to stop the proceedings?The truth is MDC T has bigger issues, which explains why they can,t capitalise on whats going on in ZANU PF.They are busy fighting for survival. MDC T supporters are also guilty of the same things they accuse ZANU PF of doing.You claim Mugabe is undemocratic for remaining the ZANU PF presidential candidate, despite the fact that he has been endorsed by all ZANU PF provincies yr after yr,yet its ok for Tsvangiri to be the president of MDC T? You believe Tsvangirai is MDC T and you are ok with that, yet you have issues with Mugabe being ZANU PF despite the fact that ZANU PF supporters want him to remain in office. You also accuse ZANU PF of keeping talking about elections,when Tsvangirai is doing the same,all his speeches even the one in UK are about how the election was stolen a yr ago rather than looking ahead and telling us why we should vote for MDC T in next election.This election is a done deal whether he believes it was fair or not.We are tired of his election was stolen,nonsense,if you can,t figure how to keep your opponent to steal from you then let somebody else with brains get a chance,nxa.

        We may as well vote for a change because ZanuPF is not giving us the results it promised. This is what happens in countries with open fair elections
