Chamisa mocks Mnangagwa

HARARE - MDC leader Nelson Chamisa has mocked President Emmerson Mnangagwa over his scarf, adding that the 75-year-old politician does not even know what Wi-Fi is.

Speaking at a rally in the capital this week, Chamisa said “He (Mnangagwa) is going around putting a scarf even when it is hot”.

“I said old man yarova sei chinja yakupfekedza scarf nekunopisa (you are being frightened by MDC to an extent of putting on a scarf even in hot weather),” he said, adding “we don’t have anything to do with that old man as we are going to defeat him in this year’s election”.

Mnangagwa has made the Zimbabwe flag-designed scarf part of his fashion statement.

Since the time he went to Davos, Switzerland, Mnangagwa has consistently worn the scarf, be it at party events or government engagements.

Chamisa went on to say Mnangagwa could not pretend to be the solution to Zimbabwe’s problems.

“We have the keys to unlock the economy, we are the young generation we can work with the international community we can call (France president Emmanuel) Macron and say can you please help us to grow our economy. Do you think Mnangagwa can do that if Macron asked him about Wi-Fi he will think that Macron is asking him about his wife,” Chamisa said, adding “this is an old generation, we are going to give them a rest in the next election, we are going to say our elders you did a great job go and rest”.

“There is no question we are going to win this year but we are demanding electoral reforms,” Chamisa said. This comes as a leading political analyst, Ibbo Mandaza, recently predicted a victory for Chamisa in the forthcoming elections, as long as the polls are free and fair.

For the first time in two decades, the forthcoming elections will not feature ousted former president Robert Mugabe and the popular late MDC leader, Morgan Tsvangirai — who lost his valiant battle with colon cancer in February this year.

Mugabe’s 37-year, iron-fisted rule was dramatically ended by the intervention of the military last November, paving way for the installation of his long-time aide, Mnangagwa, as his successor both in government and in Zanu PF.

I think Chamisa needs to listen to states men like the Ghananian President Nana Akufo-Addo, when it comes to getting help from countries like France. If ever he is going to be the President of Zimbabwe he needs to know that no country on this earth, will help another country if there is nothing in it for them. I've attached a link of the video on the wise words spoken by the Ghananian President.

He seems not to understand what he is saying -he naively think the rest of the youths (other than those of mdc-t) have blinkers in their heads- they can't differentiate between black & white! lets only wait& see what will come of july or august-but wise people don't vote only for age but results oriented wisdom.People really asses the practicality of all his claims

I feel Chamisa. The young man is right! Its time for the old garments to be done away with. seriously Zimbabwe cant be ruled by Zanu PF for 50years. Its good for the youth of Zimbabwe to take over their destiny at this time. most of the zanu pf oldies cant even read and understand. The youth are more educated intouch with the current events to take Zim Forward very fast. Its about a new Zimbabwe with new faces in Leadership that would be very be awesome

Tired of Chinotimba and Chinamasa. Zim should wake up and vote in a new government. Zanu has failed for the past 40years. Surely we can't have Zanu for another dacade. Lets give others a chance lead. Its a better risk to take. Vote anyone not Zanu please. But Chamisa is a good take. i mean his a good cake. Good for Zimbabwe. Those voting Zanu are bringing Zimbabwe Backwards. WE have tried Zanu for 40years. Its been lies, suffering, and cheating. Rather just clean out everything and start afresh NEW! I'm not voting ZANU. ARE YOU?

Point of correction: The Mnangagwa scarf is not Zimbabwean flag, but rastafarian colours which symbolises black resstance. so that scarf is sending a message to whoever cares to listen

Chamisa , you are a big joke . Please when you address these meetings , make sure you prepare and even consult others . You really believe when you want help from other countries you will just make a call . You the the French president would ask about wi-fi ? Kkkkkkkkkk...... Shame . Move away from the silly and childish statements and demonstrate that you can lead Zimbabwe . If you continue to make such silly statements , people will not take you as a serious candidate . Biti assist the small boy . The scarf depends on the material used . The one he thinks is for warming up oneself is actual not for warmth . You do not even know about that . Please ask before you make a fool of yourself Mr Chamisa .
