“ED has betrayed Zimbabwe” Mnangagwa critics
President Emmerson Mnangagwa, according to ZANU PF member Sybeth Musengezi, who is now engaged in a membership dispute with the ruling party, has betrayed the nation by breaking prior pledges he made when he first came to office in 2017.
Musengezi is making an unprecedented attempt to oppose Mnangagwa’s ascent to power and Robert Mugabe’s replacement as president.
Mnangagwa assumed power in a military takeover after receiving the support of the party’s Central Committee.
Musengezi claimed Mnangagwa was a terrible leaderworse than a colonist during a news conference this week in Harare.
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.
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.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 a member of a group that has come together in support of incarcerated opposition legislator Job Sikhala.
The daring Harare resident said Zanu PF had deviated from its founding ethos under Mnangagwa labelling the leaders terrorists.
Former Zanu PF youth leader, Godfrey Tsenengamu echoed Musengezi’s sentiments saying the party had gone rogue throwing away the constitution and rule of law.
