HARARE - Zanu PF junior spokesperson Psychology Maziwisa has taken President Robert Mugabe bootlicking to new heights, saying the 89-year-old is closer to the son of God.
Posting on his Facebook page, Maziwisa said Mugabe is no Jesus Christ, but he shares the same vision as Christ.
“President Mugabe is no Jesus Christ, but the constant persecution which he has suffered for standing for what is right brings him closer to Christ,” said Maziwisa.
He added that; “Yet it is clear that President Mugabe comes closer than most people when it comes to applying Christ’s teachings — certainly much closer than Morgan Tsvangirai who doesn’t seem to understand that intentionally destroying people’s lives goes against the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.
“President Mugabe definitely has the same vision that Christ had, namely that you should not just stand by your beliefs when your critics persecute you, but should also continue to implement them.”
Maziwisa is not the first Zanu PF official to shower Mugabe with praises. Webster Shamu, minister of Information Communication Technology, Postal and Courier Services once said Mugabe was feared the world over because of his intelligence and was like Cremora.
“Gushungo, people say you have Cremora, the whole body. The war, the world over, is about you. They fear you and that is why they are doing all this,” Shamu said.
“There is no president the world over who has degrees like President Mugabe. He is brainy and that’s why he is feared. You fought the liberation struggle for a long time and you should also rule for as long as you want.”
Party chairman, Simon Khaya Moyo who is also a senior minister of State in the president’s Office once described Mugabe as a liberator of unparalleled proportions “who God should keep for a long time to rule Zimbabwe”.
“His Excellency you are a liberator of unparalleled audacity.
“You are a useful and amazing leader and we pray to God to make you stronger and continue to lead us from the front,” he said.
The late Stan Mudenge who was once minister of higher education also described Mugabe as one of “Africa’s all-time greatest men”, saying even enemies of the veteran leader envied his “encyclopaedic” memory, wisdom and courage.
