Mugabe must speak out on Grace accusations

EDITOR — The past few weeks have shown the difference between Zimbabwean political rivals, President Robert Mugabe and Morgan Tsvangirai.

A few weeks ago, some MDC hooligans who were said to have been hired from Harare travelled to Bulawayo where they assaulted party officials, including deputy president Thokozani Khupe.

Tsvangirai immediately suspended the persons involved in the attack, either directly or indirectly.

Now South African media is awash with the case of First Lady Grace Mugabe who is said to have assaulted 20-year-old Gabriella Engels and instead of deploring Grace’s wayward behaviour, Mugabe has been mum.

Juxtapose the two scenarios, and show me a leader who is better trusted with running the country between the two.

Grace is the chair of the Zanu PF women’s league, Mugabe must suspend her from being Zanu PF chair just as Tsvangirai suspended his officials accused of attacking Khupe.

Some of Grace and Zanu PF’s supporters on social media are busy trying to obstruct the course of justice by denying what she is accused of when they were nowhere near the crime scene.

Zanu PF and its people, from Mugabe to his children, can never be trusted with anything.

They have squandered the country’s wealth through their corrupt deeds.

When Tsvangirai fired councillors suspected of plundering resources in councils, it was Zanu PF who reinstated those corrupt councillors.

Zimbabweans, let us open our eyes and see.

Grace, who has confessed that she runs the country on behalf of her husband Robert, will not take us any where.

We have reached the crossroads, and the Zanu PF has to be disposed of in the 2018 elections.

Let us all go and register when the time comes and vote Mugabe and his wife out for the country to start working again. 

It is my hope that justice is done to Gabriella.

while itz true that Mugabe shld have suspended Grace on her position as zanu pf woman's league chairwomanship position;itz not enough reason to support Tsvangirai presidency.While Tsvangirai might b right on this one,but he still can not do on plethora of other reasons e.g he changed the MDC constitution inorder to continue as president;what do you take of such person/leader will obviously use the two third parliamentary provision to push his presidency over time limits;what more he earlier parted ways with Ncube,Gibson Sibanda,Mushonga etc when he sided & sort to implement the decision of the minority in an MDC referendum & other reasons which are failures of his leadership

What a shameful comparison !! If people have to be fired for the reasons you are giving , then you deserve to be fired Mr Editor. How do you even compare a failure like Tsvangirai to Mugabe even old as he is ?
