Minister of Justice Patrick Chinamasa brings his Zanu PF violence to London.
Chinamasa had to be held back by Zimbabwe Ambassador to UK Gabriel Machinga from causing harm to Kate Hoey, the Labour MP for Vauxall in London. Nobody knows exactly what triggered the fight, but sources told SW Radio Africa that the incident happened as soon as Hoey went over to greet Chinamasa.
‘They had barely exchanged pleasantries when Chinamasa raised his voice and charged at Hoey accusing her of ‘speaking like an imperialist.’ Ambassador Machinga quickly moved in and separated them,’ a source said
Zanu PF is itching for a fight with the West, Britain in particularly. The party is going to do ride rough shod over the people of Zimbabwe once again deny them their right to a meaningful vote in the coming elections by using all manner of dirty tricks including violence. The party is not going to tolerate regime change and it is not going to stop at anything to ensure there is no regime change. And when the criticism starts, the party will have a ready-made lightening conductor - the fight it has just picked with the West.
For the last ten years Zanu PF has hidden its repressive political agenda by accusing the West of seeking regime change in Zimbabwe before the party had seized farms from the white farms. Now with all but a handful the white farms still left in the hands of whites; Mugabe has to find something else to quarrel with the West over and he is not going to rest until he has found it.
PM Tsvangirai and his MDC friends were real naïve in allowing Mugabe and Zanu PF to retain their dictatorial powers and, worse still, the people of Zimbabwe were foolish enough to believe Tsvangirai’s lies that the rubbish Copac constitution would bring free and fair elections in Zimbabwe. The nation is now at Mugabe and Zanu PF’s mercy and they are a merciless lot!
