ZANU PF member exposes Mnangagwa, – ‘He has betrayed Zimbabwe’

Sybeth Musengezi, a ZANU PF member who is in a fight with the ruling party over membership, says that President Emmerson Mnangagwa has betrayed the country by breaking promises he made when he took office in 2017.

Musengezi is in an audacious bid to challenge Mnangagwa’s rise to power and replacing late former president, Robert Mugabe.

Mnangagwa took over after a military coup, and the Central Committee of the party backed him as the new president. Musengezi said this week at a press conference in Harare that Mnangagwa was a bad leader, even worse than a colonist.

“When we voted Mnangagwa in 2018, we expected him to be a father of everyone not only a father to Zanu PF. We are not in support of the way he been treating opposition activists, and I’m calling upon my fellow comrades to stop these kind of actions,” said Musengezi.

“Our founding values emanate from the social injustices that were being perpetrated against blacks by Ian Smith during the colonial era. Our leaders are acting like terrorists,” said Sybeth Musengezi.

The court challenge comes as the ruling party gears up for its October congress, an event expected to endorse Mnangagwa as the sole candidate for next year’s elections.

Musengezi is part of a group that has come together to help Job Sikhala, a member of the opposition who is in jail. The brave Harare resident said that Mnangagwa had taken Zanu PF away from its original goals by calling the leaders terrorists.

Godfrey Tsenengamu, a former Zanu PF youth leader, agreed with Musengezi that the party had gone rogue and thrown away the constitution and rule of law.

“I ask today to those who took part in Operation Restore Legacy, to say ‘is this what you intended to do after getting rid of president Mugabe, and those who were regarded as criminals around him?”

“It is very sad that the so called new dispensation has gone rogue, disregarding totally the rule of law and disregarding the national constitution,” said Tsenengamu. – NewZimbabwe
