Musengezi Vowed To Continue Challenging Mnangagwa's Ascendancy

Musengezi Vowed To Continue Challenging Mnangagwa's Ascendancy

ZANU PF activist, Sybeth Musengezi, Friday vowed to continue with his court action where he is challenging the constitutionality of President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s ascendancy as ZANU PF leader in 2017.

Mnangagwa and Zanu-PF recently threatened to sue Musengezi’s lawyers demanding withdrawal of the court challenge.

Musengezi’s lawyers have accused Mnangagwa and ZANU PF’s lawyers of using bullying tactics and reported them to the Law Society of Zimbabwe.

The ZANU PF activist is seeking a court order declaring null and void a November 19, 2017, ZANU PF central committee meeting that elected Mnangagwa as party leader after the late Robert Mugabe’s dismissal.

In an opposing affidavit, ZANU PF secretary for administration Obert Mpofu argued that Mnangagwa enjoyed presidential immunity. He also dismissed Musengezi as a bogus ZANU PF member.

Musengezi cited ZANU PF, Mnangagwa, Mpofu, acting finance secretary Patrick Chinamasa, former Vice-President Phelekezela Mphoko and ex-ZANU PF finance secretary Ignatius Chombo as the first to fifth respondents respectively in his application. Musengezi said in his answering affidavit filed through his lawyers Ncube Attorneys:

Applicant clearly has sued the second respondent in his official capacity as the President and first secretary of the first respondent. To suggest that the applicant is thereby suing the office of the President is self-servingly misleading.

He said the fact that Mnangagwa is the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe does not bar a suit against him in his capacity as President and 1st Secretary of ZANU PF.

Something tells me that this is nothing but a factionally-orienteted,ego-driven ordeal with no signs of being of national concern. Kana ED akaruza kucourt anoedapo ndiye anenge akatuma Musengexi.

THOSE WHO FOLLOW MY COMMENTARIES ARE AWARE THAT I SAID PRESIDENT ED MNANGAGWA'S LAWYERS MUST NOT EMPLOY THREATS OR INTIMIDATION TACTICS. THEY SHOULD GO TO COURT AND DEFEND THE PRESIDENT SO THAT HE RULES HIS CITIZENS WITH A CLEAN RECORD AND FREE CONSCIENCE. THE PRESIDENT IS A TRAINED LAWYER. HIS LAWYERS MUST NOT INFLUENCE HIM TO SOIL HIS IMMACULATE RECORD.

I AM HAPPY THAT MR MUSENGEZI'S LAWYERS DID NOT SACCUMB TO INTIMIDATION AND HAVE REPORTED PRESIDENT ED MNANGAGWA'S LAWYERS TO THE LAW SOCIETY OF ZIMBABWE. I AM NOT A TRAINED LAWYER, BUT WITH THE BUSH LAW KNOWLEDGE I HAVE, THE LEARNED LAWYERS WILL BE INVESTIGATED. I HOPE THE LAW SOCIETY OF ZIMBABWE WILL INVESTIGATE THE LAWYERS WITHOUT FEAR OR FAVOUR TO CLEAR PRESIDENT ED MNANGAGWA'S RECORD.

INI NDINI, IWE NDIWE !!!!!

MR MSENGEZ, YOU ARE ROASTING YOUR RUMP STEAK ON A TORCH MY FRIEND.

ALL THE COURTS YOU ARE TRYING TO RELY ON ARE ALL UNDER A COUP RULE.

WHO WILL SAY YOU ARE INNOCENT AND LIVE LONGER HERE IN ZIMBABWE

ALL LAWYERS ARE ALSO AFRAID OF BEING ABDUCTED, TORTURED, ARRESTED OR KILLED, SO WHOM DO YOU THINK WILL HELP YOU TO WIN YOUR CASE

IF WERE ME, I WAS TO LIVE THIS TYPE OF POLITICS YOU ARE TRYING TO COMMENCE.

JUST REGRET AND STAY AWAY FROM THESE CRUEL GUYS. YOU WILL DIE LIKE A CHICKEN

LIVE THEM ALONE. IF YOU WANT TO CONTEST ON THE VOTING PERIOD, IAM SURE THAT YOU KNOW THE PROCEDURE.

DO YOU STILL REMEMBER HOW MUGABE WAS, THEN MUST KNOW THIS TO SERVE YOUR LIFE, WE LIKE YOU MUZENGEZI.

BECAREFUL.

ITS ONLY AN HOUR FOR YOU TO LEAVE YOUR LOVED ONES FOR EVER SO KEEP QUITE

BEWARE TO DIE FOR CRUMBS LIKE A RAT CHOMI

BY THE DEMAGOGUE OF A SYNAGOGUE

I THANK YOU MUZENGEZI, KEEP QUITE IF YOU WANT TO LIVE LONGER
