Sikhala scoffs at Mugabe ouster claim

HARARE - Job Sikhala has scoffed at claims that he met Vice President Joice Mujuru’s emissaries to discuss a plot to oust President Robert Mugabe.

The State media yesterday reported that the firebrand politician had met the emissaries at an undisclosed location in Harare.

However, Sikhala, whose phone went on voicemail each time the Daily News sought to get a comment from him, later posted on his Facebook page ridiculing the claims.

“When your country is under the stewardship of the demented they always fear their shadows. Today I laughed my lungs out kuti mai vangu chavakafira hapana chavakaona. (The dead are missing out on this circus).

“Kwanzi (they say) we have a recorded tape when Sikhala was talking to vice president Joice Mujuru’s emissaries trying to find ways how we should work together to deal with the demented Presidency before us,” he said.

He said the details were a concocted conversation propelled by a desperate faction of the wicked.

“Ngavangoshungurudza (They can harass) our Vice President without creating non-existent emissaries and illusionary meetings.

“The frightened gang ...want to take control of our country. Some of us will never watch it happening. This gang is evil and satanic. It can only govern hell and Satan’s Kingdom, not our beloved Zimbabwe,” Sikhala said.

According to The Sunday Mail report, during the alleged meeting, Sikhala discussed the formation of a coalition to topple Mugabe and also a plan to launch a Constitutional Court application against Mugabe’s wife Grace.

The report claims the objective on the court application was to humiliate Mugabe.

Part of the alleged conversation reads, “We take chiConstitutional Court (challenge) chekuti: ‘Zvakuratidza President is failing to run Executive yake yaanayo. Honayi zvakataura Grace apa.

“It shows this and its implications inoreva zvakati, zvakati because for Grace to call (for) the removal of a VP who is constitutionally-appointed, it shows kuti Mugabe is no longer running, so automatically it disqualifies him to make any decision because the decisions are no longer made by him but by the wife and Zimbabwe cannot continue to be a State with a wife of the President making decisions.”

According to the alleged conversation which Sikhala disputes, the parties in the so-called meeting went on to discuss how Mujuru and MDC president Morgan Tsvangirai could work together, adding that whatever move would be made, it was to involve former Finance minister Simba Makoni.

Mujuru, Tsvangirai na Makoni in a Government of National Unity ndizvo. Our country needs to move forward and clearly what we are seeing in ZANU PF is regressive and the last nail on democracy. The dictator reasserting himself.

Mujuru, Goche, Mutasa, Mavhaire, Mnangagwa, Mutsvangwa and all other ancients, don't you see what is happening here? The so called 'Generation 40' fronted by Jonathan Moyo is getting rid of all of you one by one to pave way for themselves. Take a leaf from Mugabe who is preparing for his wife's future when he informs us of his retirement on his 21st Feb. birthday address to the nation. You heard me right, Mugabe is not planning to stay in office a day longer after his birthday next year. It's time to rest old men and women, don't you think you've done an excellent job plundering the country's resources and potential and making us the laughing stock of the world? Mark my words.

politics is about who wills more power anhuwee. its about who decides what happens when and how it should happen so in all your comments think about that first.

ava ndevamwe futi biggers vanoziva kuti it should not always be a situation of yes knosi. it would seem normal thinking people are losing their positions in the party but it is better for people to express thier choices of who they are aligned to. that would determine the change in our political landscape. the future is bearable if we are going to have politicians who can stand their ground defending what they percieve to be right not partisan politicing like it has been all along. well done gumbo and goche.

There is no place for Mujuru in Mugabe's government. She should just form ZANU-PF M and all followers with her. This will make make a major split in ZANU-PF. If Munangagwa once got less than 5% even fronting Grace will reap less than 1%. Mujuru should take them head on. Needs courage.

Mamutsva (Makoni, Mujuru and Tsvangirai) sound good on paper... Kana danga rasatani rave kutsva munofuratira asi zvanzi musazovarairwa nokuti moto wacho unogona kupauka..
