I helped Bona Mugabe: Mutsvangwa

HARARE - Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) chairperson Christopher Mutsvangwa has claimed that he assisted the First Family in facilitating the relocation of Bona Mugabe to Hong Kong after she was deported from Australia.

Bona was deported from Australia in 2008 and went on to study at City University in Hong Kong.

Addressing journalists on Wednesday, Mutsvangwa said he is different from Zanu PF political commissar Saviour Kasukuwere and Higher Education minister Jonathan Moyo who do not care about the first family.

“They have no respect for the family structure and we Zimbabweans we are very particular with respecting the family structure. Zimbabweans are offended by the G40. They (G40) can’t even help the first family, as their friends, to control their kids. They are preoccupied by fighting vice presidents, fighting war veterans,” Mutsvangwa said.

“This is a true story. This other day, the president (Robert Mugabe) was talking about . . .  five to six children of the most prominent politicians who were being kicked out of schools in Western countries, among those who were being kicked out was a child of the president of Zimbabwe called Bona. She was kicked out of Australia.

“I was the ambassador in Beijing, she was being taught in an English environment in Australia . . . When she was kicked out, together with (former Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe governor Gideon) Gono and (former Labour minister Nicholas) Goche’s children.

“They were thinking of taking her to Singapore. I said Singapore’s national intelligence is controlled by the Americans and I suggested and appealed to the Chinese so that Bona goes to Hong Kong, they speak English but the national security is controlled by China because Hong Kong is part of China. That’s how I managed to secure a place for her. That’s how she managed to become what she is today,” Mutsvangwa said.

“That’s what friends do. Kasukuwere and Jonathan want the mother. They don’t want to help the family,” he added.

Mutsvangwa further said Bona “is the only level-headed child of the president”.

He said Kasukuwere and Moyo were now destroying Mugabe’s legacy.

“Kasukuwere and Moyo are destroying the legacy of the president. Moyo is trying to rewrite the history of the liberation struggle.

“On this other day, the president claims that he received me in Chimoio. I said why Mr president, why do you change history like that? I am the one who received him in Chimoio. The president was starving, the president had no shoes, his suits were torn, he was trying to listen to the radio, he was joining batteries until they were long like my hands, by then he could not buy batteries, this is real. He was not part of the resumption of the war in 1975.”

“The Mgagao comrades made him the president, now you are saying you don’t want guns, but they made you. You use a ladder to ascend and when you are at the top you push off that ladder. One day you will want to descent, you will have problems because the ladder will be not there,” Mutsvangwa said.

The war was 38 years ago. why not invent new and progressive narratives or Zimbabwe? G40 is indeed a foolish idea but so is Lacoste.

@Simoko: You are an idiot and ndiwe unotofunga nezasi chaiko. Akakuudza kuti kuva dhodhi re zanu pf ndokungona kufunga and ndokuvenga varungu ndiyani? If being zanu pf means hating whites then how come all zanu pf thieves who can afford, including Mugabe your god, are all dying to be in the whitemen's countries. Becoz you are an ignorant lunatic, you can't even realise the iron that there is nothing black about Australia, which Chris refers toright here. So, what were Mugabe,, Goche, Gono's children doing there if you zanoids hate whites? We all know that you killed a few whites during your party-sanctioned violence & murders. But again we know it was all about robbery (humbavha bwenyu) and political vegence - nothing with hating their colour at all. Those were politically & robbery inspired killings. Full stop. In fact, during your sanctioned orgy of violence & killings you even killed and injured more blacks than whites - clearly, showing your murders & violence were never at all inspired by hatred of colour. So, spare us you stupid foolery. Bullshit!

Cde Mutsvangwa stop telling people lies. R G Mugabe is not the father of Grace's children. The children are from all over that is why they behave in such a weird fashion. I trust that you are father, can you not see some family traits running through your children. Grace is a combo, every child has got his/her own signature, Peter Pamhire, James Makamba, Ray Kaukonde etc, she is just like some public swimming pool

I wish Mutsvangwa knew that those kids were on foreignland learning on taxpayers' money thats why those host countries were kicking them out. While the rest of the citizenry has to grapple with whats left of the education sector..SHIT! Zimbabweans will remember you for that.
