"Treason Is A Criminal Offence Punishable By Capital Punishment," Chamisa, Biti Told

Zimbabwe’s governing party, ZANU PF, has told MDC Alliance president, Nelson Chamisa and his deputy, Tendai Biti, that treason is a criminal offence punishable by capital punishment.

These remarks were said by former Finance Minister, Patrick Chinamasa, who said the duo has remained adamant that sanctions imposed on the country at the turn of the millennium should remain and also should be intensified. Pindula News presents Chinamasa’s statement:

I address this tweet to Messrs Nelson Chamisa & Tendai Biti in their capacities as lawyers (although the first mentioned is a lawyer more in title than substance, skill & experience) & not as political leaders. I just want to remind them of 2 things:

First, that when they asked foreign countries to impose sanctions against Zimbabwe & for foreign forces to intervene militarily to stop the revolutionary land redistribution programme not only did they dig their own political grave but they committed unpardonable acts of treason

Treason is a criminal offense punishable by capital punishment. As lawyers, they should know that what I have just stated is elementary criminal law.

Second, that in terms of our National Constitution & Electoral Law the Americans, the British & the Europeans, who have supported & sustained them from their formation & who, at the request & instigation of MDC, imposed, extended & intensified the sanctions against Zimbabwe & its population have no right to vote in the forthcoming Parliamentary & Local Authority By-Elections gazetted to take place on 26 March 2022. Nyika inotongwa nevene vayo.

They ought to know that being regular invited honoured guests to the CIA & Pentagon (USA) HQ & M15 (UK) HQ gives them no political capital that can translate into votes for them & will not save the MDC Alliance from the political rout that awaits them come 26 March 2022.

The people of Zimbabwe say a big NO to quislings. In the words of President ED Mnangagwa in his address to the 359th Ordinary Session of the Politburo on 15 January 2022: “ZanuPF ichasvasvanga MDC pama By-Elections musi wa 26 March 2022, yozo irakasha pa2023 Harmonised Elections” [ZANU PF will defeat MDC in both the 26 March by-elections and 2023 harmonised elections]

Messrs Chamisa & Biti remain adamant, since the formation of their British founded, sponsored & funded Party, that sanctions shouldn’t only remain but be intensified. They are unrepentant & have refused to recant.

For this treachery, the Mass Revolutionary Party ZanuPF will execute its revolutionary mandate & politically bury the MDCA & its allies in the forthcoming By-Elections on March 26. Nyika inotongwa nevene vayo. Those who have eyes let them ‘eye’ & those who have ears let them ‘ear’

Bush Lawyer unoruma uchifuridzira. Usarova bhoki wakaviga mupinyu. Learn to call a spade a spade. Theres nothing remarkable about Chinamasa's legal career. Which ground breaking cases has he ever won? I mean cases that shape Zimbabwe's jurisprudence. Cases that appear as legal precedents in law reports. Chinamasa mispronounces words and he seems not to know the difference between an L and an R. He used to say Kwindiriyon instead of quintillion when he was Minister of Finance circa 2008. Chinamasa never participated in the liberation struggle and he covers it up by blurbbing crap to appear more loyal others in Zanu Pf. Thats why ED overlooks him. He should cite the Legislation and the section/s thereof, which defines treason. Zanu Pf also lobbied for foreign support against the Smith regime before independence in 1980. Was that treason???

You can say that again and louder.
In any case "Olympus Has Fallen" was one of the greatest act of treason a certain country South of Sahara has ever experienced and the once that ochestrated it are accusing certain individuals of treason. The epitome of hypocrisy from Sekuru Chinamasa.

I AGREE WITH SENIOR LAWYER PATRICK CHINAMASA THAT HE IS LEARNED, EXPERIENCED AND VERSATILE IN LEGAL MATTERS. BUT MAY I REMIND LAWYER CHINAMASA THAT BELITTLING ANOTHER LAWYER ON A PUBLIC PLATFORM DIMINISHES ONE'S VERSATILITY AND EXPERIENCE TO THE EXTENT OF BECOMING ZERO.

YES, TREASON IN ZIMBABWE IS A CRIME PUNISHABLE BY DEATH {CAPITAL PUNISHMENT}. I STARTED HEARING ABOUT THIS HEINOUS CRIME FROM THE TIME OF OUR INDEPENDENCE IN 1980.

SINCE THEN, IF MY MEMORY SERVES ME WELL, ONLY THE LATE MORGAN TSVANGIREI WAS DRAGGED TO COURT ON THIS CHARGE. HE CAME OUT UNSCATHED. I AM NOT SAYING THAT THE LATE TSVANGIREI OR HIS LAWYERS WERE CLEVERER THAN STATE LAWYERS, NO. I AM SAYING THIS CRIME IS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT CRIMES TO PROVE IN AN UNCATURED COURT OF LAW.

ALL LAWYERS, UNLIKE BUSH LAWYERS ANYWAY, STARTED FROM A LAW SCHOOL FROM WHICH THEY GRADUATED INTO PRACTICE. THEY ALL STARTED AS NOVICE LAWYERS BEFORE BLOSSOMING INTO THE CHINAMASAS, MADHUKUS, MTETWAS. WE KNOW OF TODAY.

I HUMBLY ASK CAMARADA NELSON CHAMISA NOT TO TAKE COMMENTS BY HIS SENIOR COLLEAGUE SERIOUSLY. IT MUST HAVE BEEN A SLIP OF A LONG TONGUE.

SENIOR ADVOCATE PATRICK CHINAMASA WENT ON TO BOAST THAT HIS ZANU PF WILL TROUNCE {KUSVASVANGA} MDC ALLIANCE COME 26 MARCH 2022 AND HARMONISED ELECTIONS IN 2023. NELSON CHAMISA WITH HIS YOUNGISH AND UNAMUSED MDC ALLIANCE PARTY IS ALSO PROMISING FIREWORKS. { PANE MAKUWERERE APA }.

I WISH IF I COULD LIVE LONG ENOUGH TO WITNESS THESE POLITICAL PARTIES PUMMELLING ONE ANOTHER IN 2023.

I AM SORRY THAT I DID NOT MENTION TOGARASEYI'S POLITICAL PARTY IN THE EQUATION. HIS POLITICAL PARTY IS IN DISARRAY.

{ TEMPUS FUGIT, TEMPUS EST PECUNIA }

YOURS FAITHFULLY
CDE KUFA KWANGU ZVAROVA
