MDC women's assembly head misses Grace's rallies

MUTASA - MDC women’s assembly leader Lynette Karenyi is distressed by the long silence of her garrulous counterpart, Zanu PF women’s league honcho First Lady Grace Mugabe.

Karenyi said Grace was doing a good job preparing the electoral ground for her party’s sweeping victory.

Addressing a belated International Women’s Day commemoration at Watsomba Business Centre on Saturday, Karenyi said the chatty first lady has been so effective in destabilising the governing party that she always looked forward to her hugely divisive rallies.

“Let her go around the country verbally abusing her fellow senior party officials. She is working our ground. Each time I open the newspaper and don’t read about her ranting, I’m distressed,” Karenyi said.

She also took a dig at former Vice President Joice Mujuru, questioning her sincerity in joining the existing opposition ranks.

“We don’t hate Joice but we are saying how many years have you been in cabinet with this person? How sincere are you to now confess that (Morgan) Tsvangirai was robbed of an electoral victory? Why did you not act then?” Karenyi asked rhetorically.

“A serpent’s offspring is a serpent and it will never be a calf,” Karenyi said as she tore into Mujuru.

She however, said her party should continue to build for an electoral victory by mobilising new voters and ensuring that they register for the watershed 2018 plebiscite.

the reason why Zimbabwe is this situation is because an average Zimbabwean doesn't want the truth. below are some of the truths that people routinely circumvent: 1. rwavhi gukurahundi Mugabe committed genocide in Zimbabwe mainly the gukurahundi atrocities of the 1980s. this is the reason why he doesn't want to vacate the throne because he knows that he will be arrested. this has nothing to do with his marriage to grace is this come well after he had committed the crimes. 2. grace is a useless slut who left her marriage to get married to rwavhi because of pecuniary gains. 3. joice mujuru was the main driver of corruption in zanu with her late hubby rex. she owns a number of farms, mine and buildings around the country. she has no positive contribution to make to the country given her horrendous performance in govt for the past 35 years. she is a liar who wants us to believe that she always had differences with Mugabe yet she begged him to stay on the eve of her official cashiering. the fact that on top of her priorities is the chasing of solo's killers shows that she is in it for her own benefit and not for national benefit. tsvangirayi lost his wife in dodgy circumstances but never has he said that he wants to avenge that. also, joice consistently said that she has no ambition to become president now she is lying that people requested her to be president. the day we learnt to accept and tell the truth, our country and ourselves shall be liberated!!! VIVA SAVE 2018 VIVA!!!

I agree with her 120%. Where was Joice all along, she is an opportunist looking to go back to loot in govt.

MDC,musaita shanje pasinai, kuti mukunde muvengi you dont need to decampaign another opposition outfit.Instead of putting your heads together to fight your common enemy you are busy talking abt the past regarding joice..surely you will need each other to dethrone the evil party .Right now you are hallucinating abt coalition yet you degrade each other before you even get anywhere ..musashorane pliz kuti mutiratidze kuti munoda kubatana nekuti mukadaro you get nowhere all of you..
