Mujuru: Mnangagwa Was Too Young To Liberate Zimbabwe

 Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa was too young during the liberation struggle to have made any meaningful contribution it has emerged.

Speaking during her tour to the United Kingdom, Zim People First leader, Joice Mujuru told journalists, “but he wants to bring in what he was in the 1960s, which never had an impact because he was arrested before he could do anything and jailed by Ian Smith. And his parents came and demanded [his release because] he was underage and he was Zambian. He went to Zambia, he went into hiding and carried on with his education.”

Mujuru further sensationally claims of Emmerson Mnangagwa a lawyer, who has since taken over her job in Zanu PF, “Some of our commanders approached him when he was at the University of Zambia […] and he refused. But he is unelectable simply because during Gukurahundi [mass killings in Matabeleland] he was the right-hand man of Mugabe in this Fifth Brigade, which was not part of the army.

 Issues further raised in parliament by proportional representation legislator Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga, who says she is having difficulties believing the war of liberation really took place in Zimbabwe owing to the current contestation of war participants.

“First we were told Honourable Mnangagwa (Vice President) did not really run the group of five, then the next thing we were told that the former Vice-President Mai Mujuru was not in the struggle; she did not shoot down an aeroplane, Mr Mutsvangwa was stealing women’s underwear. So at the end of the day, who exactly participated in the war of liberation?” Said Misihairabwi.
