Mugabe leads bootlicking contest

HARARE - As the Zanu PF apparatchiks fell over each other in a President Robert Mugabe bootlicking contest at the ongoing party congress, the man himself was showering praises on his wife Grace whom he excitedly described as explosive.

The damb squib congress has been dubbed the “Mugabe praise and worship” show after the Zanu PF strongman banned elections preferring to appointing the party’s presidium.

Addressing his party’s central committee on Wednesday, the 90-year-old set the bootlicking tone when he told all who cared to listen that Grace was as explosive as dynamite.

This followed, sensational claims by the First Lady in recent months to the effect that Vice President Joice Mujuru was corrupt and inept and deserved to be booted out.

Mugabe said while he wanted to keep the allegations against his number two under wraps, his wife was adamant that the information be made public.

“You must understand that VaMugabe wedded dynamite so we could not keep it secret as she (Grace) insisted that we cannot sweep corruption under the carpet,” said Mugabe adding that what incensed his wife was the fact that she discovered that Mujuru’s allies wanted to block her ascendancy to become the women’s league boss.

Not to be outdone, Jacob Mudenda, the Speaker of Parliament took bootlicking to another level describing the First Lady as the “mother of revelations” when he reported to congress on the state of the party.

Mudenda, thanked Grace for unearthing “the rot” in the party while attacking Mujuru and party secretary for administration Didymus Mutasa.

Usually reserved and sober looking, Mudenda threw diplomacy out of the window as he went a gear up, pummelling Mujuru and Mutasa left right and centre.

Occupying the chairs that are normally reserved for Mujuru and Mutasa, Mudenda and Senate president Edna Madzongwe blamed the duo for causing discord in the party.

“Congress delegates, this is the state of the party leading to this congress and we know this thanks to the revelations by the mother of revelations the First Lady, Amai Dr Grace Mugabe  who was unleashed to sweep away the conspirators…,” Mudenda said to thunderous applause from the thousands who seemed to love every bit of his praise singing.

While Grace’s “praise and worship team” led by her husband could easily have won gold in the bootlicking contest, one could not have missed the drama that the congress was reduced to with supporters competing to please Mugabe as they took turns to denounce those accused of planning to topple him.

It is abundantly clear that the pharaoh's increasingly brutal and repressive strategy of divide and rule has succeeded in keeping him in power up to now. The tradeoff being that he has no real friends or trusted allies. To his strategic advantage most Zimbabweans, particularly Zanu pf acolytes, is that they are well known for their stunted intellect and deranged depravity. A part of his legacy will be the circus he created with his swarms of cloned leaches and louts who are aspiring to grab the reigns of the gravy train. Since all of the power and loot hungry contenders are unfit for purpose, he eventually will be leaving a country that is actually now well beyond redemption or rehabilitation. In order to protect his family's loot and assets he is now belatedly trying to set up a ring-fenced dynasty. The less than worthy credentials of his family members are well tabulated. None of these 'candidates' qualify for being the new “visionary leader” that would steer Zimbabwe away from the abyss of being a thoroughbred basket case state to one that can one day join the international civilized community. Another anxiety that must be present is whether enough of the potential threats have been neutralized to avoid a repeat of history such as that of the late communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu's and his wife. >>> the villainous Ceau?escu and his wife, Elena, fled the capital in a helicopter but were captured by the armed forces. On 25 December the couple were hastily tried and convicted by a special military tribunal on charges of genocide and sabotage of the Romanian economy in a two-hour court session. Ceau?escu and his wife were then shot by a firing squad

Nicolae Ceausescu's and his wife Elena were not only killed, their bodies were cremated and the ashes thrown into the Black Sea...they we not leave any legacy so Bob and DisGrace you are destined for the Zambezi River and down to the Indian Ocean...unfortunately we are land-locked so cannot bury you at sea like Bin Laden was buried or in the desert like your friend Gadafi. The military is watching the drama, The people in the ZNA and Air-force are not stupid to buy into this circus!!!
