Mutodi taunts VP Mphoko

HARARE - Businessman and musician-cum Zanu PF political activist Energy Mutodi has branded vice president Phelekezela Mphoko a failure who has fuelled  debilitating factional fights in the ruling party.

In his Political Personality Check List posted on his Facebook page yesterday, which ranks Zanu PF politburo members’ ability to among other things promote unity, peace and development in the party as well as “efforts to end poverty and suffering of the majority through their individual and collective work in both the party and government”, Mutodi graded Mphoko at the foot of the bottom 10 list.

Mutodi chastised Mphoko for “refusing to vacate a five-star hotel suite to occupy several houses that he was offered by the State, saying the houses were too small for him”.

“He has also torched storms by unnecessarily, discussing Gukurahundi and Unity Accord issues which he seems not to understand fully,” Mutodi said.

“He is too bossy and likes to command party officials to tow factional agendas. He is also the worst Vice President ever to be appointed by President Mugabe”.

Also ranked as poor performers along with Mphoko, are Zanu PF national political commissar Saviour Kasukuwere, Jonathan Moyo, David Parirenyatwa, Prisca Mupfumira, Eunice Sandi Moyo, Christopher Mushowe, Sithembiso Nyoni and Josiah Hungwe among several others.

The rankings were also based on the politburo members’ “confidence in articulating government and party ideology as well as their own independent understanding of freedom, media and organisational efficiency”.

Mutodi, an open supporter of the Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa faction, also claims that he took consideration of the politburo members “alertness and intuitiveness to cultures and diversity, symbols, beliefs, and the superiority of transcendental systems in organisational succession and transformation”.

The controversial musician, however, ranked Mugabe as the best performer followed by vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa, Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri, Ignatius Chombo, and Shuvai Mahofa while First Lady Grace Mugabe occupies position six on the top 10 list followed by Kembo Mohadi.

“While President Robert Mugabe remains the glue that continues to hold the party together, his deputy Emmerson Mnangagwa who is head of government business in Parliament has breathed life and hope into the economy by departing from populist policies that harm the economy such as the indigenisation policy and the farm invasions that his predecessor Joice Mujuru had promoted,” Mutodi said.

“First Lady Grace Mugabe managed to tour all the country’s ten provinces, dishing out goodies and farm equipment. Her rallies, although controversial, have managed to keep the party active and visible”.

Finance minister Patrick Chinamasa, Sydney Sekeramayi and youth league boss Pupurai Togarepi complete the rankings in that order.

Succession push and shove. As Mugabe`s succession plan becomes more visible people who are likely to lose out will make all efforts to do down their opponents. Mugabe`s (or rather Gire`s) succession plan is: Mphoko-president, Gire- first vice president and Garwe - a far second vice president. The country will be effectively run by the first vice president Gire with support of stoodges planted in the army and security wings of the state.This is the reason behind the erosion of war vets - the only people likely to offer any resonable resistance, if at all.
