British MP Wishes "Zimbabwe Had A Leader Like Hakainde Hichilema"

British MP Wishes

A former British cabinet, Catharine Letitia Hoey, better known as Kate Hoey, said that she wished Zimbabwe had a president of a high calibre like the recently elected Zambian leader Hakainde Hichilema.

Hoey made the comparisons between Hichilema and Mnangagwa on Saturday after Zambia’s president had met UK business and opinion leaders at the Chatham House in the UK where he made a commitment to the southern African nation’s economic recovery. She tweeted:

If only Zimbabwe had a leader like Hakainde Hichilema. Instead, they have Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa, who has ignored the rule of law, allowed corruption to flourish, used COVID-19 as an excuse to stop by-elections and encouraged attacks on Nelson Chamisa and the MDC Alliance.

Last week, Mnangagwa attended the United Nations (UN) climate change conference (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland, where he had brief interactions with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

On his return home on Thursday, Mnangagwa bragged to ZANU PF supporters who had been bussed to welcome him at the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport, saying Johnson was excited to meet him. He said:

So, the RT Hon. Prime Minister (Johnson), did not only extend his hand to me; he also grinned and grinned; that’s when I also extended my hand to him, you saw how it started. We became friendly to each other. Boris Johnson will send his minister.

But Hoey’s remarks pour cold water on Mnangagwa and his administration’s claims that diplomatic relations between the United Kingdom and Zimbabwe, are on the mend, breaking a two-decade deadlock.

Hoey (75) served as Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Home Affairs from 1998 to 1999 and Minister for Sport from 1999 to 2001.

A former member of the Labour Party, Hoey was a Member of Parliament (MP) for Vauxhall from 1989 to 2019.

PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA, HAKAINDE HICHILEMA, HAS WON WORLD PRAISE. PRESIDENT MNANGAGWA MUST CORRECT WHAT MRS CATHERINE HOEY SAID THAT [1] HAS IGNORED THE RULE OF LAW,
[2] HAS ALLOWED CORRUPTION TO FLOURISH,
[3] USED COVID19 AS AN EXCUSE TO STOP BYELECTIONS
[4] DENY OTHER POLITICAL PARTIES TO CAMPAIGN.

BORIS JOHNSON WILL NOT COME TO ZIMBABWE WITHOUT DEBATE IN THE BRITISH PARLIAMENT. THEREFORE COMMENTS BY MRS CATHERINE HOEY MUST BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY.

PRESIDENT MNANGAGWA IS NOT A BAD PRESIDENT. HE MUST RESHUFFLE HIS SECRETARIAL DEPARTMENT. IT IS FULL OF BLABBER MOUTHS. THEY JUST OPEN THEIR MOUTHS WITHOUT WEIGHING WHAT THEY WANT TO SAY.

AS OUR PRESIDENT, HE MUST APPEAR AT PRESS CONFERENCES IN PERSON, AND AVOID DELEGATING PRESS CONFERENCES TO THE CHARAMBAS, THE MANGWANAS AND THE MUTSVANGWAS.

I hear you comrade but its very difficult to support our president without looking foolish. He says one thing then does the opposite a lot of times. He took 130 people to glasglow and came back empty handed while other countries secured legit billion dollar deals. Yet he gathered people to celebrate his return. Personally that's difficult for me condone, I stand for what is right and I cannot support mediocrity. In the end it is our youths that will suffer in the future for the bad leardership we support today
