Former Zimbabwe Deputy Prime Minister Professor Arthur Mutambara has savaged President Emmerson Mnangagwa saying that it is a tragedy that he is much worse than former President Robert Mugabe in terms of brutality, corruption and misgovernance. According to Mutambara, Mnangagwa has not done anything at all to fight corruption. In an interview with CNBC, Mutambara said,
They have done nothing. In fact, they are worse than Mugabe on every front. Chiwenga and Mnangagwa were the enforcers of Robert Mugabe. Chiwenga and Mnangagwa were the front henchmen, were the runners of the system that Mugabe created. So you don’t expect any difference between the behaviour of Mnangagwa and the behaviour of Robert Mugabe. What’s disturbing is that in fact in terms brutality, in terms of corruption, in terms of misgovernance, Mnangagwa is worse than Mugabe. What a tragedy.
