ED's Advisor Critical Of Chiwenga Over Threats To Traditional Leaders

ED's Advisor Critical Of Chiwenga Over Threats To Traditional Leaders

Trevor Ncube, a member of President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s Presidential Advisory Council (PAC), has criticised Vice President Constantino Chiwenga for threatening a traditional leader, Chief Murinye, born Ephias Munodawafa.

Chief Murinye, who is reportedly related to Mnangagwa, last week publicly warned the President he would lose the 2023 presidential election or be overthrown in a military coup if he fails to deal with corrupt officials around him.

On Friday Chiwenga warned hundreds of chiefs gathered in Harare for a meeting with Mnangagwa against ignoring protocol when raising their concerns with the Government.

Chiwenga also said Chief Murinye would be investigated by the Local Government Minister July Moyo and president of the Chiefs Council Fortune Charumbira over his remarks.

Meanwhile, Ncube, who is also chairman of Alpha Media Holdings, a media house, said Chiwenga’s threats were shocking and chilling. He said:

This is shocking, chilling, and totally unacceptable in a democracy. Chiwenga spoke like a coup leader and not Vice President of a democratic Zimbabwe.

Political analyst Pride Mkono said Chiwenga’s reaction to Chief Murinye’s comments was an embarrassment. Said Mukono:

Threats on Chief Murinye are humiliating, especially coming from a Vice President who knows people have the right and freedom to say as they please.

This is not Mnangagwa’s country, it belongs to everyone. No one should be threatened after speaking of corruption as it is clear as daylight, Zimbabwe is troubled by graft.

Addressing chiefs in Harare on Friday at the annual Chiefs’ Conference, Chiwenga said Chief Murinye had acted like a person high on “Mutoriro”, an illicit drug. Said Chiwenga:

That is only done by those who drink Mutoriro, in this country, it is never done. We have one Munhumutapa (Mnangagwa).

We have one leader and it is that leader we give our respect to, it is that leader we show the entire nation what respect is all about.

What has been done by Chief Murinye is going to be investigated by the Minister of Local Government (July Moyo), the President of the Chiefs Council (Fortune Charumbira), his deputy, and his committee and found guilty then appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.

Such foolishness is not done, I hope you understand me. Chiefs are appointed and they are removed too.

I further thank my great Munhumutapa, and no one touches him as long as I live.

NO PERSON IN HIS RIGHT CENTRED SENSES WOULD SUPPORT THE GENERAL, WHO IS ALSO OUR VICE PRESIDENT.

I WAS PERSONALLY NOT SURPRISED WITH THE LANGUAGE USED BY THE VICE PRESIDENT CHIWENGA, LIKE REFERRING TO CHIEF MURINYE AS HE BEHAVED LIKE A PERSON WHO HAD CONSUMED "MUTORIRO".

MOST FORGET THAT GENERAL CHIWENGA JOINED ZANLA AT A TENDER AGE AND GRADUATED INTO ZIMBABWE NATIONAL ARMY AT INDEPENDENCE WHERE HE ROSE THROUGH RANKS TO BECOME THE REVERED COMMANDER OF OUR NATIONAL ARMY.

I AM INFORMED THAT IN THE ARMY THEY WALK COMMAND, EAT COMMAND, SLEEP COMMAND, PLAY COMMAND. IT IS THE LANGUAGE HE IS USED TO. LET US FORGET IT.

PLEASE DO NOT MISQUOTE ME. I AM NOT DEFENDING VICE PRESIDENT CHIWENGA. I AM ONLY LAYING BARE HARD FACTS.

Munhu mutapa sounds like Enslaver of man🤐
Kutapa is like enslaving.
That's not a good title for the president especially in this day and age.

@Kakistocracy: Can you translate this phrase: The conquerer(munhumutapa) into Ndebele

Munhumutapa is from the shonaz as they are the ones who rules this zimbaremabwe from long ago. So you can't find the word munhumutapa in ndebele or English because they all came.chinja Zimbabwe to ndebele or English
