Mliswa urges prayers for Grace, Mugabe

HARARE – Outspoken MP for Norton Temba Mliswa yesterday said he was sympathising with President Robert Mugabe because he did not deserve the current attention and drama surrounding his family.

This comes as Mugabe, 93, has had to endure embarrassment due to the conduct of his two sons — Robert Junior and Chatunga Bellarmine — whose wayward behaviour led to their mother’s alleged assault of a 20-year-old South African model found in their hotel room on Sunday night, in Johannesburg.

Grace has been charged for the alleged assault of Gabriella Engels who suffered multiple injuries which she said were caused by an extension cord that was used by the first lady to strike her.

Yesterday, Mliswa said the saga surrounding Mugabe’s family had the potential of adversely affecting the health of the 93-year-old.

“I am not a person to kick someone who is down and I am sincere about this. But I feel for his excellency, he is a good man, despite what we are facing from the economic point of view, despite him being in power for a long time.

“But his excellency is also getting old and you don’t want him being stressed. I feel for him. He doesn’t deserve this at this moment. We have to make sure we comfort him and I am hoping that discussions going on in South Africa are positive for his excellency,” said Mliswa.

Mliswa also said Grace needed anger management and prayers, adding that he went through the same route on his way to be becoming “a peaceful” citizen.

“I don’t want to celebrate her downfall because she is the first lady. I wanna offer a solution, one, anger management and two, prayer,” Mliswa said.

“I went through Bishop Noah Pashapa because I was very temperamental, but he worked on it through God and I am appealing to all churches in the country to pray for the first lady in terms of the anger that she has and for her to be forgiven.”

Shamwari she has to be accountable for her own behaviour, you surely are not asking the whole country to carry the burden of praying for an adult who can surely make a better decision than what she did. We don't owe disGrace anything. You're only trying to get some favours, haunyare?

Lets hope Mr Mliswa is just kidding. Who would worry much about an abusive first lady.People are suffering because of such tendencies.Serves her right to feel the reality of what people go through when they are harassed for petty crimes

The Pres doesn't deserve the stress put on him, really? This is stress he puts on himself idiot. H should have resigned long ago to tend to his growing sons. Now it's too late. What about the stress he has put on the whole nation since 2000? I feel sorry for him but I really don't. With his jet-setting ways around the globe, and Grace right next to him, the boys let the streets raise them. This is home grown, have you ever heard that woman talking, you run for covers!!

I did not even bother read this article. By the way who is Mliswa ? Are we running short of talent at DN for them to picth-up this rubbish as a subheading ? Come on you guys at DN. Zvasiyanepi naGrace the mad cow revels by the women`s leaue and Chipanga as the mother of the nation. Iyo nation yacho ndeyekupiko ? Zimbabwe yandinoziva haibvume madhoti echidembo akaita so. NEVER !

Iwe we have better things to pray for. Munamatire iwewe. Ibva apo. Kutsvaka relevance here? Tibvirwe zvedu apa. What was Mugabe doing marrying a psychopath? Fokoro mhani. Vanhu vari kushupika muno imu because of this couple from hell waiva kuti pwetere pwetere kutaura zvisina maturo pano. NXA
