How is someone like Kembo Mohadi the Vice President of a country?

Last week Kembo Mohadi was quoted essentially justifying the militarisation of the Zimbabwean government and suggested that the military were good for the economy because soldiers make good managers.

Kembo Mohadi – goodness me!

I am absolutely sure I’m not the only person puzzled by this man’s presence in high office. Honestly, what exactly did he do to get the position of Vice President?

Internet sources say Mohadi is 71 years old, so like a lot of these people in Zanu he is an old men who should be retired. But for someone who is 71 years old and a Vice President of a country, there really isn’t much of a back story about this man. During my secondary school studying history of Zimbabwe in particular the liberation struggle, there was no mention of Kembo Mohadi. Come to think of it there was no mention of Mnangagwa, Chiwenga and definitely not a whiff about Victor Matemadanda. Perhaps, as some people have said, Kembo Mohadi may not be the only liberation war imposter at the top of the Zimbabwean government. Anyway, the point is that Mohadi seemed to have sprung up from nowhere.

I did a google search about his credentials, and on the site Pindula it says he did not finish his secondary, but there was no mention of him topping up his qualifications at any point since then. Maybe he did, maybe he did not. Perhaps he didn’t which is why he made ignorant statements like the ones he made about the military and economics, while grand opening a bridge in Muzarabani.

So what exactly did he do to occupy such high office? Even a place holder should have some sort of interesting back story. The only notable thing Kembo Mohadi was involved in is that infamous moment that captured the stupidity and backwardness of ZANU when a bunch of old fools from the party were hoodwinked by an enterprising lady sangoma that diesel would come out of a rock. We all watched in astonishment seeing government ministers, sitting barefooted, expecting diesel to squirt out of a rock.

To sum up, who is Kembo Mohadi? What is so special about this 71 year old man that he would be Vice President of a country? His liberation war credentials are pretty much non-existent. His educational credentials are questionable to say the least, and he has a habit of saying ignorant statements and being present were ignorance is being exposed. I don’t know, maybe I am being unfair to the man. After all, the questions I posed about him can be equally posed to several other old men who rule Zimbabwe including the president.

This is one of the many reasons why Zanu pf must go.

Interesting points from the leaked audio involving Temba Mliswa

Kuda Tagwirei (left picture), Temba Mliswa (right picture)

Listen to the phone conversation here (MP4 file), leaked by Jonathan Moyo.

There is an audio on twitter that has been released by Jonathan Moyo which is a phone conversation between Temba Mliswa and another guy who is said to be Kuda Tagwirei, the mysterious businessman who is believed by many to be a key benefactor of Zanu schemes of corruption. I know Temba Mliswa’s voice, but I can’t say the same about this Tagwirei guy. Anyway, without wasting much time, these are the 10 key takeaways from the chat.

  1. Mnangagwa is an incompetent leader. Both Temba and the other guy on the phone make the same observation that Mnangagwa appoints people he doesn’t know. Temba kept praising Mugabe’s leadership style, a clear dig at Mnangagwa’s rubbish leadership.

2. The Zimbabwean government is in a mess also because of a lack of competent leadership.

3. Temba and the other guy are outsiders when it comes to Zanu internal politics. With reference to point 1 and 2 above, maybe the two men are implying that Mnangagwa is incompetent because they don’t know how Zanu ministers are appointed. Which brings me to the point that Temba Mliswa and the other guy on the phone are outsiders when it comes to internal Zanu politics. Temba sort of indicates his disgust at the tribalist appointments of minsters in Zanu, so maybe he has an idea of how this evil party appoints ministers.

4. Patrick Chinamasa is a yes man who is not happy with his demotion.

5. It sounds like Temba is trying to get a Thabani Mpofu off his back probably because this Thabani is investigating Temba for something that could send the loudmouth Norton MP to prison. It’s possible that Temba used this phone call to brief against Thabani and get him in trouble because he knows if he tells the other guy about alleged misconduct by this Thabani, the intel will reach high places.

6. Temba very much still sounds Zanu pf despite his claims that he is an independent politician.

7. The other guy on the phone is an advisor of some sort to Mnangagwa, but his speciality is Agriculture and Energy, or industry in general. This is probably strong indication that it really is this mysterious Tagwirei guy.

8. Temba and Jonathan Moyo may have a friendship of some sort. The other guy on the phone poked Temba about this and Temba was too defensive about this.

9. Temba and this other guy will fall out very soon mainly because of the leak of this audio and also because the two sound like they have had some previous tiffs. There was a lot of sekuru and muzukuru name calling which does not sound genuine, those two don’t sound like they are related based on blood. It’s sounds like they use each other for different purposes. It sounds like there was another person in the room with Temba. This person tried to stifle a laugh when Temba was mocking Jonathan Moyo’s inability to take a dump in his own country – a dig at Jonathan Moyo’s life on the run. You can also here this person’s fidgeting in the background, their movements are closer to the recording device.

10. Temba briefly indicated that there is a guy who is uncle to the other guy on the phone and this sekuru, according to Temba, is the one who he believes pushed for the appointment of Chasi as Minister of Energy. Could this sekuru be Mnangagwa himself or some other influential guy in Zanu?

Whatever is going on in this conversation, the fact remains that Zanu pf are corrupt. They continue to ruin lives, as such, #Zanupfmustgo because #Zimbabweanlivesmatter.

Something really needs to be done about Nick Mangwana

Honestly, something really needs to be done about Nick Mangwana. In this article, I try to provide a few ideas on how to put this loudmouth in his place. For someone who is a newcomer to Zimbabwean politics, we are allowing Nick Mangwana to get away with a lot in such a short space of time. Aaakutijairira manje, Sesijayela kubi manje.

This is someone who is not even a war veteran, he came into Zanu ‘yesterday’. He doesn’t have the muscle. He is not a soldier and neither does he have a violent korokoza background, he probably doesn’t even have bodyguards, and if he did they probably don’t like him. So why are we allowing ourselves to be taken the meek out of by a very disposable member of this Zanu regime? I have still not got my head around his exaggerated self confidence. The way he defends the evil Zanu party is something that should be of great interest to the International Criminal Court as well as to psychiatrists. And the irony of it all is that Nick used to work as a mental health nurse in the UK. Even his brother, Paul (the one with teeth like a hippo) is not as defensive of Zanu as he is.

What should be done?
Nick needs to experience deprivation like the many Zimbabweans who are suffering at the hands of his masters. Nick needs to know what it feels like to lose what is close and dear to you. The first thing that needs to happen is a revocation of his British Citizenship. I am not a lawyer myself but I am sure there are many intelligent lawyers out there who can find an angle on this. For example, Nick Mangwana is defending a regime that is carrying out systematic human rights abuses and state sanctioned murders. Not only that, but he is doing everything in his power to mislead, confuse, facilitate and promote these human rights abuses. When people are abducted, arrested, or murdered by the Zanu government, Nick comes out like a bull defending these acts using denial and various other tactics. He is essentially, the Joseph Goebbels of this regime. Those in the UK need to keep putting pressure on the UK authorities to take away his British Citizenship. We know it is something that is part of his exit plan when the Zanu regime eventually ejects him.

The second thing that needs to happen is that Nick should be put on the sanctions list including a travel ban into the places he loves like the UK and the EU. In the meantime, if he happens to come into the UK like he did last year when he accompanied that Mnangagwa importer (SB Moyo -the coup announcer) a citizen’s arrest is warranted and will happen. We are already mobilising towards this. I say ‘Mnangagwa imposter’ because SB Moyo’s speeches are just as boring and dry as those made by Dambudzo, and both men are where they are not because of intelligence, grace or popularity but because of violence. It also turned out that SB Moyo is a coward because when he was confronted by the protesters outside Chatham House in London, he ran away like a tuck-shop cigarette thief. I was there but that’s story for another day.

Thirdly, Nick’s life up and about in Zimbabwe should be filled with paranoia and inconvenience. There are a number of things those in Zimbabwe fed up with this man can do to achieve this. For example, if you work in a restaurant and Nick orders some food, you could add a bit of extra ‘matter’ to his food to improve the flavouring. If you see his car parked outside, it’s quite justifiable to put some political or personal graffiti around the state funded motor. If he has any small houses around, let’s expose that including with visual imagery. If you have any evidence that gets him in trouble with his masters share it on social media. Nick needs to know how it feels to sleep with one eye open. Lets hasten his eventual residency at Chikurubi prison, we all know that’s where he is going to end up if he is lucky.

The human skid mark that is Nick Mangwana.

To sum up, we cannot allow this human skid mark to mock us in a very obvious way. The time has come now to do something about Nick Mangwana. If we cannot bring considerable inconvenience to this idiot then we have no chance against the gun carrying junta.

The MDC Alliance need to build strong alliances in and outside of Zimbabwe to remove this thing

We are seeing how the support for the Mnangagwa regime is faltering in the SADC region, and understandably so. Who in their right mind would support such a disgusting human being (I use the phrase human being loosely because the evidence shows that he is a probably Lucifer in the flesh). Anyway, casting that aside, in addition to his misrule of Zimbabwe, the human rights abuses and the systematic corruption, Mnangagwa is simplunot a likeable character. He is not an African hero. His life story lacks heroism or any of the pan Africanism from which Mugabe derived a lot of his support in Africa. Mnangagwa’s political history is that of using violence and intimidation. There is not a single moment in history where you can say Mnangagwa did this for the Zimbabwean people, not a single one. That’s says a lot about him. How can someone who has been at the top of government since 1980 not have a single moment of heroism or decency towards his own people? This lack of a humane back story makes it easy for people around the region and even in his own party to stop supporting this man.

In the light of this, I believe that Chamisa needs to build alliances with people within SADC, starting with the various opposition parties in those countries. Yes, Chamisa needs to make friends with influential bodies in Zimbabwe as well. He needs to find common ground with influential people who are also frustrated by Mnangagwa and his government – and that list of people is growing. The Zimbabwean people already don’t like this man, and have made that very clear, but those in Zimbabwe are being battered for having that point of view. The world at large is realising that this man is a fraud and worse than Mugabe, which takes some doing by the way. The people in the region are finding it hard to defend him and his party. This gives the MDC Alliance an opportunity to make new friends and strengthen allegiances. The more Mnangagwa is alienated from influential people within the region, the faster his removal will be. Even the Chinese need to realise that this guy is not wanted by his own people. Who would have thought that someone like Malema would publicly expose Mnangagwa in this manner?

Some of the ways diaspora can put political pressure on Zanu pf

Last week Mnangagwa conducted a press conference in which he essentially threatened the MDC Alliance and anyone who stands up against his government’s systematic corruption and human rights abuses. Many political observers believe he plans to carry out another brutal crackdown on anyone who dares to speak up against his misrule of Zimbabwe. There is even talk that he wants to make it a serious criminal offence to expose government corruption or saying anything that questions his authority. All this is aimed at crushing any dissent in the country, whether it’s a demo or social media campaign against human rights abuses or a tweet bemoaning the government’s terrible running of the country, Mnangagwa is confirming that he is just like Saddam Hussein.

Those of us in the diaspora are in a position to organise a demo and within minutes actually carry it out without fear of police brutality or abductions at the hands of Zanu agents. These are freedoms millions of our people in Zimbabwe can only dream of. Let’s not waste these liberties. People like Hopewell and many others are in prison for exercising these freedoms. If every single day everyone in the diaspora did something to raise awareness of the suffering in Zimbabwe to their fellow residents and to the authorities in the country they live in, governments around the world will treat the situation with urgency. We have seen the wonderful things that the #Zimbabweanlivesmatter has done in a short space of time. We need to keep pushing. Below are a number of ways the diaspora can put political pressure on Zanu pf.

Contact your local parliamentarians
In addition to social media campaigns, let’s also use more formal channels of democracy in the countries that we live in. Let’s send emails and letters directly to our local MPs, Congress people and councillors so that they formally table the Zimbabwean issue in parliament or congress. In our correspondence with these authorities we need to provide clear and strong evidence about the human rights abuses in Zimbabwe. In our emails, let’s attach video links of the police brutality being carried out by ZRP, testimonies by people who have been abducted, tortured and sexually assaulted by Zanu agents. Don’t forget to show them Mnangagwa’s threatening speeches as well so that they can see for themselves that this man is actually worse than Mugabe.

The issue of e-petitions
While e-petitions seem to be a quick and easy way of endorsing a campaign, they are limited in that they need to meet a very high threshold. For example, in the UK, an e-petition needs at least 100 000 signatures for it to be debated in parliament. That is a lot of signatures, and that is made even more difficult by the fact that there would be a number of petitions basically highlighting the same issue, which makes it even harder to reach the required threshold. Yes, e-petitions are quick and easy, but signing them is not a guarantee that they will be debated in parliament because the threshold is so high. Perhaps, there is need for a single e-petition on Zimbabwe every six months which is then advertised thoroughly just like the #Zimbabweanlivesmatter.

Street demos
In many people’s eyes, street demos remain the bog standard approach to activism. Obviously, in the current climate where the fight against Coronavirus requires people to observe social distancing, it’s going to be tricky. But so long as people are operating within the country guidelines, they should carry on picketing and holding demos across the country. You could hold a demo by yourself, with friends or family, holding placards. We have seen inspirational images of this online and it is wonderful to see. We need to let the ordinary people of the UK, Canada, USA, South Africa etc see us on the street raising awareness about this cruel Zanu government.

To sum up, we really need to keep the foot on the pedal; we should not relent when it comes to raising awareness about the suffering in Zimbabwe. It is the least we can do for our people who are being choked by Zanu.

With this appointment, Chiwenga is being marinated alive by Mnangagwa…

and the people of Zimbabwe are being set up for mass deaths.

Everyone who is normal is reacting with shock and disgust at Mnangagwa’s appointment of Chiwenga as the Minister of Health and Childcare. Everyone including those who are not normal will be aware that Chiwenga is not well which is why he is always on the plane to China or South Africa for treatment. Zimbabwe right now is hopelessly facing the Coronavirus and many are dying. So when Mnangagwa, a man who is famous for bringing suffering to human beings, appoints a sick man to be Minister of Health and Childcare, there is something sinister about it. One of the reasons could be a simple one – Mnangagwa wants to appoint someone absent to be Minister of Health and Childcare at a time the country is facing a serious health crisis so that more and more people die. To put it simply, Mnangagwa is appointing ‘no one’ to be in charge of health so that many more people die, because he just doesn’t care about Zimbabwean lives.

But when you talk to the learned political people some are saying something less sinister is happening. They say Mnangagwa has made this appointment as way of forcing Chiwenga to come back from China or stop going to China. The reasons for this are two; to keep Chiwenga away from the China where he plotted the coup that removed Mugabe I. 2017, and to make sure he stays longer in Zimbabwe and eventually dies from a lack of treatment. Others are saying Mnangagwa is trying to throw a live snake at Chiwenga in order to humiliate him and make him less popular. This of course is based on rumours that Chiwenga has a faction that wants to remove Mnangagwa. Some are saying the longer Chiwenga stays in Zimbabwe the higher the risk of his death because he needs specialist treatment which cannot be found in Zimbabwe.

To sum up, I personally think Mnangagwa has made this appointment for two reasons:

  1. To force Chiwenga to come back from China or wherever he is so that he eventually falls sick in Zimbabwe, receives treatment in the country, and inevitably dies
  2. By putting Chiwenga in charge of the biggest health crisis in Zimbabwe’s history, Mnangagwa would be completely destroying the small amount of popularity that Chiwenga has which the generari is hoping to use when carrying out another coup.

Whatever the case is, both men are awful human beings who have ruined our country and because of that, #Zanupfmustgo because #Zimbabweanlivesmatter

We have to keep doing what Zanu hates: exposing corruption and theft

I am no political strategists, but it seems to me that when Hopewell Chin’ono, Alex Magaisa and many other brave men and women of Zimbabwe exposed corruption by Zanu, the party got into panic mode.

They really hate it when their business gets exposed for the filth that it is. It maybe a coincidence, but ever since the revelations about corruption gained steam amongst Zimbabweans, Zanu has been experiencing levels of discontent within its ranks. We hear and read stories about how the leadership have been pointing fingers of blame at each other. In the midst of that at least two of the big fish died in unclear circumstances.

This is why I think people like me and you who want democracy, justice and ending corruption in Zimbabwe should keep digging for more information about the theft of our money. And the #paybackthemoney needs to continue. Many will agree that anything that causes discord in Zanu pf is a positive thing. So let’s keep on inconveniencing them with these corruption exposés.
This time I really think we need to focus even more on the alpha and omega of corruption in Zimbabwe, the thief in chief, the man who cannot help himself but steal steal steal. I am talking about Mnangagwa himself, of course. We need to dig up his files. Actually, there are so many reports and evidence about his thieving activities, it’s not so much digging up but taking swabs at the surface because his wrinkly hands are all over everything from mining, banking and probably pimping.
Another one is SB Moyo, the coup announcer, the one who ran away from in London when we tried to have a word with him outside Chatham House.

Let’s keep putting these expose’s out please. Let’s not lose heart. The fight is on!

Getting ready for the anti Zanu demo tomorrow

The time is hear. Our moment has arrived. The day we have all been waiting for is upon us. I urge every Zimbabwean and every human rights activist in the UK to attend the anti-Zanu of demo tomorrow 31/07/2020 outside the Zimbabwean Embassy at 11am.
Let’s go and tell the world about Mnangagwa and his beastly regime. Let’s go and show Mnangagwa and his thugs that they cannot intimidate us.
Let’s go and show our people back home what freedom to protest looks like. Let’s go and demonstrate on behalf of our people back home who are being intimidated by Zanu pf from protesting against Its misrule of the country.

I urge you all to carry placards that reveal to the world what a nasty man Mnangagwa is. Tell the world Mnangagwa is worse than Coronavirus.
I urge you all to create their own makeshift placards and tell it like it is. Let’s call a spade a spade. Let’s call Mnangagwa the devil because that is what he is. Let’s call Chinamasa a fool because he behaves and looks like one. Let’s call Matemadanda an idiot because that’s what he embodies and more. Take a picture of Mnangagwa and draw a massive lump of poo on his head. Let’s use the freedoms we have here in the UK to protest. Our people back home are dying for this freedom. Hopewell Chin’ono is in jail because of speaking out against Zanu. Let’s do it for Hopewell and many others killed by this brutal gang of thugs.

Below is a list of messages I urge all my followers and everyone reading this post to print out and bring to the demo:

Zanu pf must go!

Zanu pf is finished!

Mnangagwa is the Devil!

Zanu pf is worse than the Coronavirus!

Mnangagwa is worse than Coronavirus

Chinamasa is a fool!

Matemadanda is an idiot!

Mnangagwa hates young people

Mnangagwa should be tried at The Hague

Matemadanda’s children are ashamed of him

Matemadanda’s wife probably hates him

Today I’ve spent the whole day preparing my placards and demo literature. This is a huge moment in history and I am doing my part, so should you!

***Please wear a mask and gloves, bring hand sanitizer and maintain social distance!

Diaspora: Use the freedoms you have to raise awareness about the human abuses in Zimbabwe

Some people will say they don’t do politics, others will say demonstrating is pointless because nothing will ever change. Some will have a go at the MDC and find faults in their approach and somehow use those to draw similarities between the party and the Zanu. Some of these reasons are avoidance tactics, some of them are just sheer arrogance. Nonetheless, what is real is that Zimbabwe is being ruined at a faster rate than ever before and if we don’t do anything we will regret our inaction sooner that we think.

Therefore, I urge people in the diaspora to use the freedoms they enjoy to demonstrate and raise awareness about the Zanu abuses in Zimbabwe. There is no limit to what Mnangagwa is doing, our friends and relatives in Zimbabwe can fall victim to the many acts of violence and cruelty this Zanu government is dishing out. And when these people are not using fear and violence to subdue them, they are running down the country with corruption causing more suffering.

On the 31st July, wherever you are, be it in the USA, UK, Canada, South Africa, European Union, do something that raises awareness about the human rights abuses and criminality being carried out by this Zanu government. If you can, organise and demonstrate outside the Zimbabwean embassy in your country. Not only that, you can write an email to your local MP or Congressmen telling them about what’s happening in Zimbabwe. Tell them Mnangagwa and his government are actually worse than Mugabe. You can do the same on twitter, attach links and videos and let them see what these animals are doing to their own people.

Doing nothing is inexcusable. You can not be neutral when abuses are happening. Let’s do something, let’s raise awareness!

Why Zanu hates young people

A few months ago, this Zanu government, using its agents, abducted and abused Joana Mamombe, Cecillia Chimbiri and Netsai Marova, three young women from the MDC Alliance. What’s even more sinister is that the three are still being held on house arrests despite requiring medical and psychological treatment, and JUSTICE. The state is charging them of faking their own abduction and sexual assault – how wretched can Zanu get?. More recently we have seen MDC youths being assaulted and arrested in trumped up charges, to name a few, Godfrey Kurauone, Judith Tobaiwa, Sekai Muchaina.

These terrible events got me thinking and I quickly realised that Zanu really has a problem with the youth i.e Zanu really hates young people! To get a better understanding of this issue, I began to read a bit and spoke to a few political observers who had their own theories as to why Zanu is doing this. Eventually, I came to the following conclusion;

Zanu pf especially the old men at the top of the party, hate young people because young people have their whole lives ahead of them; they are forward looking, they worry about their future and the future of Zimbabwe. Young people are generally an innovative demography, constantly coming up with better ideas on how the country should be run. They do not have blood on their hands, and so sleep peacefully. They are physically fit and have much more bearable faces and are fancied by the young mistresses who are entangled with the old men of Zanu.

If you look at the elderly men running Zimbabwe , none of them possess these characteristics, in fact they are the complete opposite of youthness like the devil is to Jesus. They have blood on their hands, which probably means they get unannounced nightly visitations from the people they killed in the last 40 years. They are backward looking because they lack innovation. They lack innovation because they have never had to innovate to survive, they feed off other people’s hard work. They don’t care about the future of Zimbabwe because they are not part of it – a lot of them are 10 years deep into retirement age. To the eye they look hellish, and on top of that they don’t look like a bundle of health either, many of them are allegedly riddled with all sorts of conditions.

Because of their huge stake in the future of Zimbabwe, the fight for a better Zimbabwe will mostly come from the youth just as it was against the Rhodesians in the 1960s and 70s. In the next 10-20 years the youth will be in their 30s, 40s and early 50s, while a majority of the old men in Zanu will be rooming with Mugabe in the depths of hell. The few who will still be around will be feeding from a tube, hopefully in receipt of prison style domiciliary care in Chikurubi or at The Hague. I think this is why these old men are so bitter and hateful towards the young people of Zimbabwe or anyone resembling youthness both physically and in terms of ideas. This is probably one of the reasons why Zanu leaders hate Nelson Chamisa so much. This is probably why Zanu youth leaders are dried up middle aged men in their 50s.

Long live, the youth of Zimbabwe!!
