GRACE Mugabe lacked grooming and true motherhood as shown by her foul language during interface rallies, the Zanu-PF Youth League said yesterday. The wing also called for the expulsion of Dr Mugabe from Zanu-PF and for President Robert Mugabe to step down as President and First Secretary of the party and President of Zimbabwe.

It further resolved to expel Youth League secretary Kudzanai Chipanga, his deputy Mpehlabayo Malinga, its commissar, Innocent Hamandishe, secretary for finance Tongai Kasukuwere, the wing’s secretary for external affairs, Anastancia Ndhlovu, and deputy secretary for Administration, Xavier Kazizi.

Addressing a press conference at the Zanu-PF Headquarters in Harare yesterday, Youth League spokesperson Cde Yeukai Simbanegavi distanced the Youth League from the statement made by Cde Chipanga denouncing the Zimbabwe Defence Forces Commander, General Constantino Chiwenga.

“We, as the progressive members of the Zanu-PF Youth League, who clearly understand the ethos and values of our liberation struggle, pledge our undivided solidarity and support to the ZDF for decisively dealing with economic criminals who have intentions of reversing our hard-won independence through their corrupt and unethical dealings.

“The Zanu-PF Youth League subscribes to the African values of the ubuntu/hunhu. We have been raised to respect our elders and revere our liberation fighters. However, of recent times the Youth League had been hijacked by counter-revolutionaries bent on misleading and confusing the youth,” she said.

They castigated Chipanga for siding with the First Lady instead of belonging to the revolution.

“The likes of Kudzanai Chipanga, his deputy Mpehlabayo Malinga, Youth League commissar Innocent Hamandishe, Youth League secretary for finance, Tongai Kasukuwere, and the wing’s secretary for external affairs, Anastancia Ndhlovu had become the voice and face of the Youth League, looting and plundering at the expense of millions of grassroots youth they purported to represent. They would say ‘Pana Amai ndopane Mwana’, but we say the youths belong to the revolution and not to individuals.

“We take exception to the vulgar language which had become part of Mrs Mugabe’s vocabulary and clearly showed that she lacked grooming and true motherhood. It is unfortunate that the President allowed her to usurp executive authority from him thereby destroying both the party and Government,” she said.

The Youth League said it would investigate activities and assets of Chipanga and his allies. They called on President Mugabe to rest and become an elder statesman.

“The course of justice should take its path without fear or favour.

“All criminals, particularly the likes of Saviour Kasukuwere, Jonathan Moyo, Patrick Zhuwao, Ignatius Chombo, Letina Undenge, Mandiitawepi Chimene and others should pay dearly for causing untold suffering to Zimbabweans.

“Upholding of the party and national constitution is of paramount importance as such we are recommending that all the expulsions which were done in the Youth League from 2014 onwards be declared null and void.

“We also strongly condemn the unprocedural expulsion of our Vice President and Second Secretary, Cde Emmerson Mnangagwa from both the party and Government and recommend immediate reinstatement,” she said.

    Watanga manje with your big bag of bone lies. People like you belong to the dustbin where your Mugabe and his degree thieving wife belong. Where did I say I support MDC? Don’t support idiotic programmes that Mugabe initiated simply to stay in power. Fool. We want to move into the 21st century like other nations. Hatidye zvima fake slogans zvenyu

    There is nothing different here. Expulsions after expulsion without following due process from both factions. Foolish people.

    The generals clearly said the suffering of ordinary citizens was being caused by our own incompetent gov’t,and the corrupt inner circle of the president. This explains why the army had to intervene. The human violations by the regime are the reason why sanctions were imposed on us by the west and not the land redistribution like you want us to believe. It’s a shame that the army had to intervene to force the regime to respect the rule of law and for it to uphold our constitution. How do you explain the president’s inner circle awarding itself thousands of hectares of land at the expense of ordinary citizens? Is that why we fought the liberation struggle? When are you going to stop making yourself a joke on this platform? You are beyond redemption.

  • Kwangwari Gwayendepi

    These are the same idiots whose slogan used to be “vanhu vese kuna amai.” Vana gunda musaira. They are on the side of whoever they feel has the momentum at that particular time rather than on what’s right.

      There was another fool on here called Mugabeism spewing garbage. Wonder what happened to him. Or that other one writing from the comfort of Sydney Australia talking about homeland or death. Fools.

    Herald: Now that it is clear that Mugabe and his wife have lost power, the Herald has started singing praises for Mnangangwa. G40 has now become the target.

    She learnt that kind of language from none other than the man himself. He is the one who is foul mouthed, uncultured and does not respect the will of the people.

    Agreed…but you do not humiliate outgoing leaders in the manner Chris Mutsvangwa is doing. Each vote you want to throw away will haunt you. 50 + 1.

    How can expelled Persons expel sitting members? The ZANU PF of today, like you, is not principled and highly opportunistic. You now rubbish RGM’s legacy. The army said it is targeting criminals…who then was being targeted when those on show yesterday have been accused of this or that crime? We also fought in the war of liberation but have not asked for anything from anyone in return. We fought for every person and it was never part of the plan that there would be discrimination of any kind or that a President can only be a war veteran. Kana zvakadaro, Tongan tione.

    Do you silly people not realise that I am President Comrade of Zimbabwe FOR LIFE?

    By the dear names of God, if any naughty, wicked scoundrels try to depose me, they will be beaten most harshly with a stick.

    Le it be known that not supporting me is a one-way ticket to Hell…

    I don’t listen to these fakes. Just yesterday, they were at the forefront applauding and ululating to every word from her mouth, vowing to be ready to die for them, then suddenly,, because the wind has shifted, they say it is uncultured.

    I said it that that woman is an empty gourd that represents everything uncultured and reminded of a cautionary tale of the Gang of Four. It is disingenuous for the Youth League, and indeed any ZANU PF league, to now turn around when they have been giving her and RGM a free pass for a long time and were the cheerleaders.

    The second Chimurenga or Umvukela was basically about to free our land, freedom to black persons, National independence, statehood, territorial integrity, and sovereignty.
    And, the Mdc-t or m, n, or 99 wasn’t yet conceived. Please do not try to re-write and distort our history.

    The Lancaster House agreement made it possible to delay us to have access or reclaim our land from the invaders of the 1890s, period.
    The dynamics in Zanu P.F. were bound to happen at some stage in order to safeguard our vanguard party. From these changes the party will emerge stronger than before. Our President and First Secretary is compelled to rest in order to reinvigorate the ruling party lest, we unnecessarily lose power to renegades and political quislings in opposition goons.
