Power Crisis: Mliswa Says ZANU PF Must Let Mugabe Rest

Power Crisis: Mliswa Says ZANU PF Must Let Mugabe Rest

Norton legislator (independent), Temba Mliswa, has said the ruling ZANU PF must let the late former president Robert Mugabe rest after the party blamed Zimbabwe’s founding leader for the power crisis.

Speaking in a recent interview with South African broadcaster eNCA, ZANU PF spokesperson Christopher Mutsvangwa said Mugabe’s mismanagement of the country over the past two decades was to blame for the current energy crisis. He said:

The power crisis that the country is facing currently is a product of years of neglect within Zimbabwe in particular.

The mismanagement, the arm-fisted mismanagement of the last two decades of Mugabe and his G40s obviously has a negative pull.

It is retarding the speed of recovery, but you can’t doubt that recovery is going on.

In response, Mliswa said ZANU PF must just admit failure to rectify the problem. Mliswa, a former ZAU PF MP said:

These guys governed together with Mugabe for 37 years. They even had slogans, Mugabe tofa naye [we’ll die with him]. Now he is gone they want to blame him for the rot. It’s rather sad. The honorable thing would be to admit that we made mistakes and will work to rectify them.

It’s an indictment of poor leadership, failing to take responsibility for anything, always finding scapegoats. Is there evidence that you tried to correct Mugabe from making the error? Without that you are equally culpable. Let the man rest in peace.

Zimbabwe’s power crisis is affecting people from all walks of life including businesses, miners and households.

First step in correction of a mistake is admission. Mutsvangwa's statement simply means he is not admitting that he had a role in the mess together with what is being called the 2nd republic. He wants us to believe we got a new zanupf after the coup in 2017. You can't fix what you don't admit is wrong. Mutsvangwa and the 2nd republic are telling us they are it responsible so they would rather cushion themselves with solar systems and diesel generators in their places of residence and business rather than fix the national crisis.
Those who have the brains to understand and are interested in fixing the problem will vote the whole zanupf out or bring in a completely new zanupf with visionaries and not looters.

The world outside knows that Zanu(PF) is Mugabe, and Mugabe is Zanu(PF). To them, whoever talks bad about Mugabe is an enemy of Zanu(PF), and, whoever talks bad about Zanu(PF) was never a sincere follower of Mugabe. They cheated and betrayed him, and feared him when he was alive. Margaret Dongo said something to that effect. I hope we of the members of that party are also not lying to the present President, and will only come out in the near future. It is such people who make it difficult for the leader to lead as, in African fashion, the leader has to protect the dignity of those elders under him, even if they exhibit some form of delusion or insanity.

I used to view ZANU PF spokesperson, Christopher Mutsvangwa, with envy. Now it has all evaporated into thin air.

Christopher Mutsvangwa is an educated man in ZANU PF colours. He should know management principles that when taking a post, you takeover everything including debts.

Their so called second administration has been in power for the past 4 years. This is more than ample time to correct all anomalies. Temba Mliswa is a hundred per cent correct. Yesterday they blamed Sanctions for their failures and today they are blaming the dead for their failures.

Mliswa is very sensible sometimes ,though I think he only speaks to gain political mileage as he too is part of the rot.
The incumbent regime never has foresight and if any will just be a gimmick as is Vision 2030 not attainable at all with such rampart corruption and all.
Theirs is crisis management or rather management by crisis as the case now to invest in solar power,etc .Have they known just now that solar has and is energy?
Hence the voice of reason is crying out for change, but alas a change will not be now for the beast time is not yet up.
