‘Tsvangirai a pathological liar’

MDC-T leader Mr Morgan Tsvangirai has been labelled a pathological liar, who professes ignorance of the fact that he is being sued by his home boy over the failed 2013 “grand coalition” against President Mugabe, when newspapers were awash with the court case since mid this year. Mr Moreprecision Muzadzi, who was used as an emissary to engage and to mobilise opposition political parties against President Mugabe in the 2013 election, last week got a default judgment for payment of $7 800 and a Nissan NP200 he had been promised by Mr Tsvangirai for services rendered.

Mr Tsvangirai, his brother Manasa and the party’s deputy chairman Mr Morgan Komichi, were also ordered to pay $50 000 as damages for the physical attack on Mr Muzadzi when he visited the political leader’s Highlands home to claim his emissary fees.

Mr Muzadzi said when service was effected at Harvest House, the Sheriff of the High Court was assaulted by some thugs, a development that spread like veld fire nationally and internationally through conventional and several online media reports.

After the default judgment, Mr Tsvangirai and the two others filed an application for rescission of the default judgment on the basis that they were not aware of the suit and that the Sheriff never served them.

This was despite the fact that a report was made to the police and the MDC-T party leadership was approached during police investigations on the assault case.

In his affidavit opposing the rescission application, Mr Muzadzi said the lies by the three men bordered on contempt of court and should be dismissed.

“The application for rescission is perjured and is a plethora of lies since applicants premise their alibi on shameless falsehoods that the Sheriff of the High Court did not serve them the summons when the truth and fact of the matter is that their party thugs assaulted and battered the Sheriff as he effected the service on June 15, 2017,” he said.

“Applicants have connived to commit perjury, which is an act of swearing a false oath — a crime against justice. “The court should dismiss these liars’ claims with severe punitive costs as it is contempt of court in total.”

Mr Muzadzi said the media coverage of the court case was so extensive and it was childish for Mr Tsvangirai and the other two to profess ignorance of the matter.

“This is sad for someone who was the Prime Minister of Zimbabwe to fabricate kindergarten lies to escape paying a youth who, by genius, organised his 2013 grand coalition,” reads the opposing affidavit.

In the rescission application, Mr Tsvangirai, together with his brother Manasa and Mr Komichi, argued that they were never served with the summons and that they only learnt of the default judgment through the Press.

“I verily assert that I was never served with the summons by the respondent through the Deputy Sheriff and, therefore, had no knowledge of this claim,” said Mr Tsvangirai.

He argued that the Sheriff, if he served the papers on a receptionist at Harvest House, erred because he should have served him at his home.

Mr Tsvangirai said his brother Manasa was not an MDC-T official.

Mr Komichi, it is argued, is the party’s deputy chairperson, but does not stay at Harvest House.

The three argued that the default judgment was obtained fraudulently and that their prospects of success if the matter is referred to trial were high.

    Why did your MDCT leader not agree to a re-run.? Be reminded that he admitted that he was not aware of the constitutional provisions of the need to gunner 51% votes. I am not given to your speculation about the 2008 elections results. What then happened to Tsvangirai`s support in 2013? Did it vanish and if so, why?Until your sellout party learns the political art of the possible,it will remain the champion of political opposition. be guided accordingly.

    I am just performing my national duty to educate mentally upside down Moe. He is given to waffling hogwash on this forum. He should support his views by improving his sellout party to be attractive to voters. Why should I brook wiseacres like him/her?

    Are you saying Zanupf duped its own supporters by lying that it would create 2.2million jobs well-knowing that this would not materialize because of so-called sanctions? Very lame.

    • Cde Mzvinavhu(Prof)

      ZANU PF “ well- knowing“? My foot! It is only MDCT who knew well the sinister plans of their handlers. The point is sanctions are not justified to continue because our land reform that triggered the Western sanctions , that was baptized and entrenched in our new constitution was a the product of GNU. We expected sanctions to go after the 2013 elections .

  • Cde Mzvinavhu(Prof)

    Leadership in ZANU PF is elected . Both so called Lacoste and G40 elected the current leadership. If you want to see otherwise ,you can democratically lobby the ZANU PF provinces . Barking elsewhere, is not effective ,as Mr Mutsvangwa and company now bitterly know while sitting outside ZANU PF. Why should ZANU PF supporters forget MDC. It is akin to advise Christians to forget Lucifer and his lot! Unthinkable !

  • Cde Mzvinavhu(Prof)

    Stop showing your ignorance. Yes I blame sanctions ! The issue of $15 billion is not a fact but speculation on how the country may have lost due to transfer pricing in our diamond trade by the companies involved , not the government per se, you idiot. With the current international law on money laundering why cant that money be located if its a fact?

  • Cde Mzvinavhu(Prof)

    Tsvangirai did not get the necessary votes to avoid a re-run of Presidential election. That was the official position.

    I am not off topic, I’m seeing the bigger picture. Judging from your offensive rhetoric I don’t expect you to see it.You think we don’t know that you have a tendency of paying people to forward your anti-Zimbabwe agenda. In 2013 you ran on Zimasset which was meant to “defeat sanctions” What happened between 2013 and now that at your rallies you are again whining about sanctions. You asked for a mandate to defeat sanctions. If you successfully governed then “sanctions are history.”
    Why are the sanctions not preventing your children from enjoying expensive wines from expensive hotels? Why are they not stopping YOU from buying $1.3million rings. Why are they not stopping YOU from building 51 roomed houses? Why are they not stopping YOU from attending low profile meetings abroad. You are a brave man/woman to call this brood of vipers a “government”.
