Only now Mutsvangwa condemns violence - hyena moaning mauling but still love goat meat.

The lump rose in my throat to hear Mutsvangwa and Mujuru condemning Mugabe’s increasingly bullish behaviour not because they were wrong to condemn the tyrant but at the sheer hypocrisy of the other two!

"The violence in that language is totally uncalled for in a State that aspires to be a modern constitutional republic. Even unpleasant views should be entertained unless they carry with them the threat of illicit armed enforcement," said Mutsvangwa in response to Mugabe’s threats against the war veterans who have asked him to step down.

"To invoke the danger of armed mutiny among people that were demobilised and disarmed nearly four decades ago and are in their 60s is just misplaced."

Mutsvangwa and his rogue war veterans have terrorized defenceless povo for the last 16 years denying the people their freedoms and basic rights including the right to a meaningful free vote to impose this de facto one-party cum one-man dictatorship. As the regime’s storm troopers, the war veterans led from the front in the violent white farm invasions and corralled civilians, especially in the rural areas, to attend Zanu PF rallies and vote for the party; they did not think of their advanced ages then.

The war veterans have played a key role is keeping Mugabe is power using brute force and it was none other than the war veterans themselves who administered the violence. They made Mugabe the monster he is today and it is rich for them to object now that the tyrant is using the same brute violence on them.

If anyone deserves to be roughed up then it is these rogue war veterans!

"We are shocked as ZimPF by President Robert Mugabe's rants against political opponents, especially his revelation that he used to throw political opponents from within his then Zanu into dungeons packed like mice,” added former VP Joice Mujuru.

"It is quite alarming that, of late, Mugabe has been using the spectre of macabre and grossly horrifying human rights abuses perpetrated by him, his government and his merchants of violence to ward off political opposition to his rule.”

This woman has been in Zanu PF throughout the war of independence and then was in Mugabe’s cabinet for 34 years, the last ten years of which she was the number two and she is shocked and alarmed that Mugabe has used violence against his political opponents! The regime has murdered over 30 000 innocent Zimbabweans in its 36 years in power for Pete’s sake!

If she really did not know Mugabe was a vote rigging and murderous tyrant all these years then what the hell has she been doing other than looting and piling up the pounds in weight! And now she is out campaigning for the nation to put her back into office; what a sick joke.

Zimbabwe is in this economic mess with unemployment a world beating record at 90% plus and millions of our people living in abject poverty and despair because of decades of gross mismanagement and rampant corruption. The people realised as far back as the mid-1980s that Zanu PF was taking the nation where we did not want to go but failed to force Mugabe to first of all change course and when that failed to remove Zanu PF from office. We would not be in this economic mess is the nation was able to hold Mugabe and Zanu PF to account in free, fair and credible elections.

The economic meltdown has not space Zanu PF leaders other than Mugabe, his family and a select few. It is no secret that Zanu PF grandees like the late Nathan Shamuyarira and Enos Nkala lived the last years and died in abject poverty. Zanu PF, with the cynicism of George Orwell’s Animal Farm, painted Shamuyarira’s Borrowdale house and filled the pot-holes in the road to his house to hide the decades of rot and decay betraying the sorry state of those who dwelt there.

The economic meltdown has been so serious Zanu PF members are fighting over the dwindling wealth like clans of hyenas fighting bones of any elephant whose flesh was picked clean a long time ago. Mai Mujuru and her ZimPF friends were the first to be booted out of the imploding Zanu PF and now it is Mutsvangwa and his rogue war veterans’ turn.

For Mai Mujuru and Mutsvangwa to accuse Mugabe now of being a corrupt, vote rigging and murderous tyrant is as nonsensical as a hyena accusing another of being a ruthless killer. It would be foolish for the long suffering Zimbabweans to have any sympathy for Mai Mujuru or Mutsvangwa for any ill treatment they now getting from Mugabe, they dished out the same to us during the Zanu PF days.

It is not for the goat to feel sorry for a hyena that has just received a serious mauling from another hyena; a hyena is a hyena mauled or not it still loves goat meat, any goat foolish enough to think mauled hyena is a vegetarian will never live to tell the tale!
