I snubbed Gumbura's wives — Mujuru

HARARE - Acting president Joice Mujuru has said she snubbed five of jailed rapist Robert Gumbura’s wives who were seeking their husband’s amnesty.

Mujuru told delegates at the National Women’s Constitution Conference yesterday that some of Gumbura’s wives visited her office to try and secure his release, but she refused to entertain them. Gumbura is serving an effective 40 years in jail on five counts of raping his congregants.

“Five of Gumbura’s wives came to my office and I refused to see them,” Mujuru said. “I delegated an officer to see them because they were in support of their animal husband who abused women.

Some of Gumbura's wives.

“The wives said they encouraged Gumbura to do what he did because it was correct. Further, they said they were the ones who were giving him sexually-enhancing pills, arguing that they wanted the family to be big. This was wrong and we need to punish such people.”

Women and men who aid the abuse of females should be punished, Mujuru said.

She said the culture of child marriages should end as it was unconstitutional.

The ministry of Justice should align more than 400 laws in the wake of the adoption of a new Constitution to empower women, Mujuru said.

Mujuru directed that all government ministries should work to mainstream gender equality and equity.

This is WRONG. Totally wrong for Mai Mujuru to ignore the Gumbura's. Your true motherless character colours are showing up. You are not a LEADER! Mai Mujuru you know Gumbura is falsely accused because you are one of the architects of the scheme to destroy Gumbura. Remember, God is in Heaven.

This is indeed the right thing to do. No need to entertain such issues. The women must go back to the Courts
