Ncube likened to Idi Amin

HARARE - Francis Mufambi, who has resigned from the Welshman Ncube-led MDC, has likened the opposition party president to the late Uganda authoritarian leader Idi Amin.

Mufambi, who was the party’s national youth secretary for international relations, told the Daily News that he was resigning from the party because it had deviated from its initial values and norms.

“I am actually sad that I am leaving the MDC but I have to do it after realising that we are creating a monster more than Idi Amin,” Mufambi said.

“The innocent are actually suffering, while the guilty are rejoicing.

“The president of the party (Ncube) is surrounded by a very dangerous and destructive cabal led by Edwin Mushoriwa and the president just accommodates them because they are people who sing for their supper and dance for sadza.”

Mufambi becomes the latest official to jump ship in the wake of the resignation by Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga, who was the organisation’s secretary-general and lately Nhlanhla Dube, the spokesperson.

Other officials that have left are Frank Chamunorwa, who was the vice national chairman.

Mufambi, who has also served in the international relations implementation committee of the United MDC, has been holding a senior position in the Ncube-led MDC since 2011.

“I am terminating my membership with the MDC,” he said.

“There are factional issues that I am not happy with. As one of the senior youth leaders, I was faced with a lot of blemishes and faults.

“If you are thought to be in Misihairabwi-Mushonga’s camp, you are treated like a leper. The way they treated Priscilla’s issue was unconstitutional.

“They said the presidency has accepted the resignation when in actual fact there is no organ called the presidency in the MDC.”

He said the party was condoning hate speech and other unconstitutional acts.

He added that there were other party members who had done a hatchet job of copying and pasting Zanu PF’s tactics in pursuit of power, adding that Misihairabwi-Mushonga was being treated in the same way former Vice President Joice Mujuru was treated in Zanu PF.

“This is the biggest castration of democratic order of our times. I will be happy to leave the organisation whose chances to win after such acts are between slim and none. It’s possible for my grandmother to be a goalkeeper for Dynamos than Welshman to be president of this country,” he said.

He said there was need for opposition parties to work together and have unity of purpose.

“There is ego among leaders. They are selfish. Most of them are running political parties to fund raise for their private projects. We can only talk of winning on the day that all opposition parties will come together and fight Zanu PF as a united force,” he said.

Mufambi said he was fighting for democracy in the country and had lost several of his relatives through Zanu PF’s iron-fisted actions.

“My mother was beaten by Zanu PF thugs, who caused her sickness, culminating into her death. There is need for a very radical programme of action characterised by mass action,” he said.

Idi Amin.hated Sikhs / Indians and deported them to the UK. Zanu pf have the same sentiments of disdain against non-indigenous people. They rip them off & beat them up and rob them to drive them out of the country. Welshman Ncube's problem is his arrogance and lack of policy to rid the nation of the prime-evil dynasty.
