Zanu PF slams Tsvangirai over visit to TB Joshua

HARARE - President Robert Mugabe’s Zanu PF has ridiculed MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai for visiting prominent Nigerian-based prophet Termitope Balogun Joshua (TB Joshua), saying he should not seek political solutions in church.

Tsvangirai attended TB Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations (Scoan) church services on Sunday, raising speculation that he was seeking divine intervention after suffering a heavy defeat to Mugabe in the July polls.

TB Joshua prayed for the former premier and when he laid his hands on him, Tsvangirai flopped into a chair.

Pyschology Maziwisa, Zanu PF deputy director of information, mocked Tsvangirai for visiting the Nigerian prophet.

“Everybody has a right to seek divine intervention,” Maziwisa said.

“President Mugabe seeks divine intervention and so does (Barack) Obama. Therefore, there is nothing wrong with Tsvangirai seeking divine intervention. But it becomes questionable if someone goes to church to seek political solutions.

“Following his landslide loss, Tsvangirai is going to TB Joshua to seek for answers as his political fortunes continue to wane. This is wrong as his misfortunes can be addressed by reviewing his failed strategies that made him lose decisively to President Mugabe. With all due respect, nothing will change the fact that Tsvangirai is a compromised leader who will never win against Mugabe.”

Maziwisa said the MDC leader should address his flawed policies if he wanted to remain relevant in the political landscape of the country.

“He can visit all churches in the world but nothing will change because the people know that he is a British puppet,” Maziwisa said.

“Tsvangirai should know that he is seriously compromised on three fronts. The first one has to do with character. He is an immoral and clueless leader who has nothing tangible to offer the people."

“Secondly, his policies do not resonate with the populace and this was reflected in his landslide loss.

“Thirdly, Tsvangirai has no national interest at heart as he believes that we can only prosper with the help of a white man. Tsvangirai needs to address these political shortcomings if he wants to be relevant.”

Luke Tamborinyoka, Tsvangirai’s spokesperson could not be reached for a comment on Maziwisa remarks, but MDC spokesperson Douglas Mwonzora hit back at the Zanu PF junior spokesperson.

“Maziwisa is offside on the matter,” Mwonzora said. “First we do not take any advice from Zanu PF because it’s like Jesus taking advice from Satan.

“There is nothing wrong with a leader attending a church service. Mugabe attended Johane Masowe church services and wore their garments on more than two occasions.

“As such, Tsvangirai is not the first leader to attend a church service and Maziwisa should know this.”

He added that his party still had confidence in Tsvangirai’s leadership and the former premier was in Zvishavane today attending to the party’s Midlands province’s 14th anniversary celebrations.

Tsvangirai political fortunes have been on the decline after losing dismally to Mugabe and his party.

In the wake of the defeat, Tsvangirai has been brushing off increasing calls within his party to pass the baton.

Maziwisa said his party remains committed to fulfilling its manifesto and promises made to people.

Stupid Pschology!!! Kembo Mohadi has been to TB Joshua and many more from this shit party ZPF and no one castigated them because its their right and what they believe in as individuals. Why then does it become an issue when anyone from the opposition does the same? Ziva zvekukwirwa nekumashure naana Jonathan usiyane nema beliefs evavhu!! There is so much corruption taking place in your shit party, Shamu killing elephants in Hwange, Chihuri and his boys, Obert Mpofu with the minerals and Chombo abusing his office to acquire vast acreage of land in the country but you never say a thing! Morgan goes to church and it becomes an issue worth commenting from pple like you? Get a life you jerk, no wonder this country will always be in this situation because of pple like you. lmbwa yemunhu!!

It's better he goes to church to seek devine intervention than some in zanu who go to n'angas & try to kill their neighbours' children as sacrifices so that they will win an election

Collin - 13 October 2013

My problem is with mugabe and zanu pf.They ve won the election and they should pay more attention to issues of improving peoples lives and not watching what those they defeated are doing.Mugabe, when given a chance to make a speech is still stuck with the vitriol of Britain,Tony Blair,bla bla bla.You ve chosen look east so be it.It is disturbing when you divorce one woman and marry another but continue talking about the ex! A lot needs to done to reverse the disasters of 33 years Mr Mugabe, leave Tsvangirai and TB Joshua alone,they are loosers!!!

Maziwisa you are doing a good job the brand Tsvangirayi must be tarnished at all cost. Ukaita zvekufungidzira kuti nyoka yafa mangwana inoku kobora. Kick Tsvangirayi more so now that he is down. This is exactly what the West and Daily news did for the past 15 years. Even this article starts with the name Robert Mugabe when its to do with Maziwisa. You cry babies should just shut up because ndiyo politics yacho. Mwonzora the MDC dis-spokesperson has selective amnesia. Just last week he gave Press Conference supposedly on Tsvangirayi but he constantly refereed to Zanu pf even naming Khaya Moyo and Mutsvangwa. Because that's the name of the game. Ofcourse mudslinging always tends to affect those aspiring for power than varikutonga otherwise naBaba Jukwa Mugabe angadai ari kutenga here. Zvino HARVESLIKIS is already taking its toll. NAYE TSVANGIRAYI musamurege ...

Zimbabweans should have the opportunity to take a look at all MDC executives in their private dwellings. They are really like Zombies. They know not what to do. Is anyone surprised that Tsvangson went to TB Joshua? Some of these people, like Biti, Chamisa, Mwonzwora and Moyo, visit Sangomas daily. They sometimes go to bed in their shoes and those with wives have often been waken up by their wives in the middle of the night when they cry in deep sleep when they have daily nightmeres. Ask Moyo's wife. Ask Chamisa. He shouts "Zanu" every night. We should feel pitty for these stupid bafoons. Their white masters are breathing on their necks asking if they had any strategy because whites cannot wait for another 5 years. Tsvangirai went to TB Joshua to ask for a variety of things, from errectile solutions to marital solutions. Biti has not had sex since July 31, and so did Chamisa, Moyo, Mwonzwora and Eveline Masaiti. MDC are in disarray.

You were there as a spy, on behalf your aged master. Little SPY, shout up!!!

Do not worry son ! Take it all with a pinch of salt.......but first check ! God will convert fifty per cent of Mogabe's followers into Serpants that will poke their noses into the Affairs of Mankind. And the other 50% into Pillars of Salt because of their inquisitive nature. So, check your Bacon and Eggs for evidence of previous incarnation by recalcitrant women into Iodised Salt.
