'Gays hijack Zanu PF'

HARARE - There are real fears that the ugly infighting within President Robert Mugabe’s Zanu PF party has now come perilously close to degenerating into a fatal war that could see opponents organising hits against each other.

This emerged after motormouth Hurungwe West legislator Temba Mliswa convened a media conference in Harare yesterday where he made sensational claims as the fallout from the party’s deadly factional and succession battle escalates.

Among Mliswa’s myriad bombshell allegations was his below-the-belt claim that politburo members and Cabinet ministers Jonathan Moyo and Saviour Kasukuwere were “gay gangsters who have hijacked the ruling party”.

The fiery Zanu PF Mashonaland West provincial chairperson’s acerbic attack on his party colleagues follows recent State media accusations that he was allegedly a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) mole.

His broadside yesterday also came in the wake of worsening factional fights in the party that have seen deputy Foreign Affairs minister Christopher Mutsvangwa taking the unprecedented step of questioning Vice President Joice Mujuru’s war credentials.

“The question… is whether the party has become a party of gay gangsters because it is not a secret that Kasukuwere and Jonathan Moyo are close,” Mliswa said.

“It is a whole syndicate of gay people, otherwise what would you be doing shopping in New York with another man, leaving your wife behind and the man is excited about having to go shopping with you?” Mliswa asked rhetorically, adding that this was the reason why suspended Sunday Mail Editor Edmund Kudzayi, “a 29 year-old man without a wife” had been hired by Moyo.

Mliswa alleged that Moyo was behind a smear campaign against him, which was meant to mask his (Moyo’s) own links to the American spy agency.

As the Hurungwe West legislator claimed Moyo’s stint with Ford Foundation revealed that he was one of the CIA’s operatives, Mliswa produced a document which he claimed showed the link between the CIA and the American institute.

Mliswa also said Moyo was receiving funds to destabilise Zanu PF from within.

“You cannot be part of this organisation without their initiation,” Mliswa said, adding that Zanu PF deputy director of information Psychology Maziwisa had also allegedly been roped in by Moyo because of his alleged “homosexual orientation.”

While Moyo was not picking up his mobile when the Daily News tried to contact him yesterday, Kasukuwere laughed off the allegations, suggesting that Mliswa had lost control of his mental faculties.

Maziwisa declined to comment saying he wanted to see the story first before doing so.

Kasukuwere said: “That one is now crazy, I don’t take him seriously,” he said before hanging up.

Further efforts to talk to him were fruitless as he was no longer picking up his mobile phone. 

Continued Mliswa: “Some of us wonder if the party has been hijacked by these homosexuals but it is now time we stop it. We cannot go to congress in December with gays in our midst. We, the young in the party should put a stop to that.

“We will not allow the party to be run by gay gangsters. They are constantly given money by the CIA and we have proof that they are gay, people like Maziwisa, I can prove it to the president”.

Mliswa said the Zanu PF central committee, in which he is a member by virtue of being provincial chairperson, had been rendered useless as the politburo no longer reports to it.

Mliswa also tore into another politburo member and Mugabe’s nephew Patrick Zhuwao, whom he accused of plotting to oust his uncle, Mugabe.

He said Zhuwao was being used by Moyo to pursue factional agendas to the detriment of the party and the First Family.

The maverick legislator said it was ironic that both Moyo and Zhuwao were at the forefront of the campaign to force Mugabe to resign owing to advanced age, yet they now wanted to be seen to be championing the nonagenarian’s continued stay at the helm of the party and the country more than anyone else.

The businessman-cum-politician said the two were falsely posing as power-brokers in the beleaguered Zanu PF when in fact they were “kings without kingdoms and castles.”

“It is because some of us were not in positions of authority when they ran the show but now that we are here, we are there to protect the leadership,” Mliswa said.

He said Zhuwao particularly wanted the Zanu PF youth league to have the same influence as South Africa’s ANC youth league “where Julius Malema had (had) the power to recall the then president Thabo Mbeki.

“Zhuwao is being used by a faction and yet he talks about a palace coup but we are saying to him come let us work in the constituencies because that is the only way of preventing it,” Mliswa said.

“I challenged him in one of our meetings to stand by his uncle as some of us do. We stand by our uncles through thick and thin.

“They believe controlling the youths will help them achieve their goal to change the presidium at congress but we are staying with the status quo.”

While refusing to blame Mugabe for failing to follow party rules that provide that the politburo reports to the central committee, Mliswa said the president needed to reconsider Moyo’s appointment.

“The president is an ardent believer and follower of the rules and he has asked us in the central committee to make the politburo accountable but maybe it is about the composition of the central committee that we have to look at,” he said.

“What is probably worrying is that Moyo stood as independent, he was rehired and he lost elections but was still appointed and we ask, ‘what is he doing amongst us?’” Mliswa told dozens of gathered journalists.

He also suggested that some of the country’s security chiefs are heavily compromised because of their association with Moyo.

Mliswa also launched a scathing attack on Mutsvangwa, calling him an undisciplined war veteran who must be reined in.

He claimed that it was Mutsvangwa’s recklessness which had led to the premature termination of his tour of duty in China as Zimbabwe’s envoy to Beijing.

Mliswa denied taking money from the Americans as alleged, but said he welcomed any aid to his constituency because it was “poor and in need of aid”.

Analyst Shepherd Mntungwa warned last night that Zanu PF was close to a deadly internal war.

“Make no mistake about it, Mugabe has lost control of the party and the feuding factions. Unless something happens soon to mitigate the situation, it may be a matter of time before body bags begin to pop up. The situation is that bad,” he said.

I have tried to post via Herald also expressing my sentiments of total disgust against the Zhuwawaos, if they didnt allow me space it means my comment was perhaps deemed a nuisance.all the same keep temba Mliswa for speaking your mind out,who in Zanu hasnt been involved with Americans?Even the President is said to have been with his difficult time ally Gono to America trying to bribe some senior people there to help scratch sanctions.Now this behaviour of this Zhuwawos wife is typical of the Jezebel type of reaction to issues,rather criminal.we dont want street fighters in the name of leaders.Our leaders ought to be role models

Sometime back Moyo appointed a certain guy as CEO of ZBC and the guy was later found doing it with a male partner somewhere at a night club in the avenues.The guy was arrested by the security guard and only to be found out that he was the ZBC CEO.Well he was fired. Mliswa could be right after all.

Mugabe himself appointed GAY SODOMIST Rev BANANA to be our first president in 1980.GALZ was legally registered in Zimbabwe long before the birth of MDC. Hypocritical ZANU PF is full of homosexuals but foolishly accuse MDC T on gay issues which is not at all a national problem.Themba Mliswa knows all the gays in ZANU PF.

Hooo, heya ingochani zvadzo? Temba Mliswa has committed serious crimes against humanity. In Zanu, its the leadership that matters, coming down to the people and improving their livelihoods is a serious crime. he should leave the people of Hurungwe to the dogs and he will rise in zanu.

How come you have not reported about Mugabe bootlicker, Mliswa, being slapped by Joao's (Zhuwao) wife in Chinhoyi? And why do you keep on writing “Zhuwao” when it is “Joao”? I am a stickler for accuracy. It's good that Mliswa is ruffling a lot of feathers - which I think is good. The truth must come out. Mliswa, like all others, is sucking up to Mugabe. Mliswa says, “…we are there to protect the leadership”. This is a contest to see which minion bootlicks Mugabe more. Mliswa goes on to fawn that, “The president is an ardent believer and follower of the rules…”. Nonsense.

It is well known that Moyo is ndlama madoda Kasukuwere is his small house . some time ago he bonked Aaron Mpofu a South African who he had appointed zbc boss who was fired after he was seen in a car on top of Kelvin KaNcube at a Harare night club. If they say Themba is lying then sue him yes sue him . Bcoz you know very well that you rub bell or its batocks with other man you will not sue him as he will spill more beans .We told you chaona munzako chapita mawa chili kwayiwe when MDC chased away sell out whom you had bribed to destroy the party you were singing day and night that mdc was finished now who is finished eeh? Remember Moyo is also a wife batterer bcoz a gay does not enjoy woman association

It is common knowledge that Jonathan Moyo and Kasukuwere are gay , have been and will always be. Any appointement or close associates of these two are all gay. Hapana news apa. Mugabe knows about it becoz iye Mugabe was, it is believed, abused as a boy. Saka zvekuti ZANU PF is full of gay people is well known to those who know the party and its leaders. Sorry for those who are not. Muhondo maibatwa twakawanda hama dzangu. Vasikana vaiva vashoma saka varume vaibatana magaro. Jonathan is well known for gay orgies.

Simon Khaya-Moyo, ZanuPF chairman, is of Ndebele extraction. The Ndebele came to live on what is now the south west of Zimbabwe in October 1837 from Zululand. The whites came in 1890 and set up the nation-state. In Havana, Cuba, yesterday Khaya-Moyo said, “Zimbabwe undertook the land reform programme which took more than 12 million hectares of land owned by about 4,000 British settlers and corporations and gave it back to millions of Zimbabweans after almost 100 years of being dispossessed”. This is preposterous anachronism and deliberate lies because there was NO nation-state called Zimbabwe before 1890. His tribe came from Zululand and settled on the south west. The Shangaan came from Zululand before the Ndebele in 1820 and settled on the now south east. The Manyika, Karanga and others also moved west in the now Zimbabwe away from the Portuguese who had occupied Mozambique. That is the history I know recorded by whites who could read and write at the time. I am a stickler for accuracy.

Actually it all makes sense especially about Mugabe being abused as a young boy or man. It explain his frothing at the mouth regarding gays. Tough going that his party is now full of gays. What is funny though is that he appointed Banana as first president of Zimbabwe, could he have been so blind as not to see the obvious. Mugabe is not as intelligent as most people think, madegrees obtained in prison do not count!
