"We Dealt With Mugabe In A Very Surgical Manner" - Mutsvangwa Speaks On Tsvangirai's Role

ZANU PF spokesperson, Ambassador Christopher Mutsvangwa said they protected Zimbabwe’s founding leader, the late Robert Mugabe from persecution from the “country’s enemies” and later “dealt with” him in “a very surgical manner.”

Mugabe who resigned in 2017 after the citizenry marched demanding his ouster, later claimed that year that he resigned under duress amid reports that the army had him under house arrest.

Just before Mugabe resigned, the late Morgan Tsvangirai, a former Prime Minister (2009 to 2013) and former leader of the opposition MDC addressed thousands of people gathered outside the Parliament building where he urged Mugabe to “step down immediately to avoid impeachment”.

Mugabe resigned before he was impeached.

Zanu-PF spokesperson Christopher Mutsvangwa on Thursday told HStv, a digital television station run by Alpha Media Holdings that Tsvangirai played a crucial role in President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s ascendancy. He said:

We kept Mugabe in office when the threat was from the West. You do not open your armpits when the enemy is at the gate. So when we saw that there was a chance to deal with Mugabe we dealt with Mugabe in a very surgical manner where even themselves (opposition) became part of that process.

We built a broad, united front and it is also to their credit that for a change there was wisdom just that the wisdom died with the demise of Tsvangirai then afterwards the party was afflicted with its usual falling to the Western countries.

At the time, Tsvangirai is alleged to have lobbied Western diplomats to play down Mugabe’s ouster, which he described as a citizens’ doing, and embrace Mnangagwa.

Tsvangirai succumbed to cancer of the colon in South Africa in February 2018.

1You should read your history, During the war Britain was on our side kkkkkk. The war was fought between Rhodesian that is Smith's govt yanga yatonetsana ne Britain ikanyora document rainzi Unilateral Declaration of Independence/ UDI.. Smith akazvirumura from Britain ,Rhodesia ikatopiwa ma sanctions ne Britain because of that..ma sanctions aya akanokumbirwa nema comrades e Zanu vana Mugabe nana Zvobgo, so during the war u never fought with Britain but with Rhodesian forces who were loyal to Ian Smith(a Rhodesian not a british)

Had it not bern for UDI plus Sanctions from British Mugabe have no prospects dreaming of winning the war never

To silence the guns Mugabe was introduced to Zanupf by Britain from Ghana to do away with the likes of Hebert Chitepo,, Joshua Nkomo,,Tongogaraand many freedom fighters.Pple went to Uk for talks to transfer power to Mugabe so that whites remaining would keep their farms undisturbed.Nkomo was tricked to sign the Unity Accord to bury the hatchet between Mugabe and the Ndebele pple .No one was spared Zvobgo was used to draft the Constitution of Zim ,Tekere was sent to the political wilderness .But These gurus were there before Robert.Pple cry about sunctions Ian Douglas Smith was under sunctions but his currency was stronger than the USD .Why he used cheap cars avoided overseas trips . Had a very small cabinet .Agric he threw all his finances into it ,, had local car assemblies Mutare ,Harare eg.Layland ,, Willovale,,Tinto industries ,, Zambezi coachworks .Big military camps today were built by Ian smith.41 Infantry battalion ,,KG VI ,,11Infantry not forgetting ,,Big projects like Kyle dam,Kariba Dam, Berchnough bridge this keeps me wondering 40 yrs down the line most infrastructure was done by whites .Pliz help me how many great things were done by our gvt up to date 1dead bc tv station .Agric down on its knees and in the intensive care unit and on life support system.We are talking more than action . Let's move away from talking and do the work on the ground .

zimbabwe never defeated britain
zimbabwe defeated white settlers who were no longer under the control of britain
they signed a UDI ( unileteral declaration of independence) im 1963 soon after the federation collapsed

Britain never controlled zimbabwe since 1963,the white settlers were on their own,in fact they were under sanctions from britain
