Shut up, Zanu PF bigwig tells ZPF

HARARE - Zanu PF politburo member Pupurayi Togarepi has warned senior Zimbabwe People First (ZPF) officials to stop forthwith their diatribe against President Robert Mugabe and his wife Grace.

In an unsolicited interview Togarepi, who is the chairperson of the ruling party’s youth league, said he felt obliged to respond on behalf of Zanu PF after ZPF secretary for mobilisation Dzikamai Mavhaire described Mugabe as an “ancestor”.

Speaking at the Joice Mujuru rally that was held in Harare last week, Mavhaire said Mugabe has lost touch with reality because of his advanced age.

But Togarepi leapt to his boss’ defence saying that in 2013, Zimbabweans voted for Mugabe, 92, notwithstanding his advanced age.

“Mavhaire should just shut up. He, just like everyone in that so-called People First party are failed politicians who have nothing to offer to Zimbabweans. I come from Masvingo and I know him as a failed politician,” Togarepi said.

ZPF is packed with former Zanu PF top guns, who, led by Mujuru, are now aiming at challenging Mugabe come 2018 elections.

Then, Mugabe will be 94, and his opponents like Mavhaire are of the view that the nonagenarian has nothing to offer to long-suffering Zimbabweans.

At the rally that was held in Harare last week, Mavhaire reminded the gathering that long before his public disillusionment with Mugabe’s policies became widespread, he announced that the Zanu PF leader was a liability and had to go but no one took him seriously.

But Togarepi said his erstwhile comrades in ZPF are “lost souls” that have no policies to offer to the country but throwing salvos at Mugabe, the man he claimed was destined to rule forever.

“Those people left Zanu PF because they were told to leave. They would not have left on their own and now they are making unnecessary noise. They should not assume that they are clean when they are not. We are going to expose them if they don’t stop making noise,” he said.

Togarepi said Mujuru and her partners are “political midgets” who would never bring anything meaningful to the table, let alone sound policies “to match those championed by our president.”

“I worked with them for a long time and they are all empty vessels. The thing respectable for them is just to shut up or we will expose them more,” Togarepi said.

Pupurayi Togarepi have you been adopted by Bob as his child. You are brain washed idiot without any future. Above all, you are very selfish and myopic.

"...We are going to expose them if they don't stop making noise." Togarepi, you are the one exposing yourself here. Do you really need to be provoked to deal with criminals. We, logical Zimbabweans, then wonder, "How many criminals roam our streets scot free simply because they are loyal to ZANU PF and 'don't make a noise." You sound stupid and silly at the same time. Do you think one Zimbabwean will believe you on this? If so, then you belong to the psychiatric ward and there you must be put in the Intensive Care Unit, if they have one. The best you show is that if Mujuru is guilty, then you acted in cahoots and you know she has superior weaponry against anyone in ZANU PF today. So 'shut up and fuck off' and stop taking Zimbabweans for granted. You really provoke every Zimbabwean by your silly statements. Maybe it follows to show that ALL the people in ZANU PF are criminals and because of their loyalty to the thieving squad they remain the untochable. It doesn't sound good when the governmen purports to have no cash to pay the hard working civil servants and someone sits pretty out of nothing more than that you are ZANU PF and 'don't make a noise.'

Im not ashamed to call her Mother Zimbabwe,because she was there in the bushes pamwe nava Mugabe,no doubt about that and she deserve that name. Shame on you Togarepi..

Togarepi should shut up,he is in fact the zanu pf political imbecile of the 21st century.He will one day account for his unsolicitated hostile and reckless statements which seek to glorify the dynastic family which had invested heavily in residential properties in foreign lands in anticipation of an uprising against its decaying and corrupt rule. Does Togarepi think that when that time of reckoning arrives,the first family would carry him at its back when it flees to its safe destination? Political events which unfolded in countries like Burkina Faso,Zaire,and several African states should send a clear signal to him that the patience of the civil populace could be stretched to a certain limit not further than that.Uzwile Ndoda stop it.
