ZANU PF Blames Mugabe For Electricity Crisis

ZANU PF Blames Mugabe For Electricity Crisis

ZANU PF has blamed the late former president Robert Mugabe who was ousted in a military coup in November 2017 for the prolonged power blackouts currently being experienced in Zimbabwe.

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.

Zimbabweans are spending at least 18 hours a day without electricity and this has severely negatively affected business.

The state-owned power company, Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (ZESA), says low water levels at the Kariba Dam are triggering the country’s current blackouts.

The failure of ageing equipment at its Hwange Thermal Power Stations has also played a part. | eNCA

Zanupf supporters, MP's, ministers and leaders are to blame for their incompetence and lack of intelligence for the situation we find themselves in.

now you blaming him come on, who was advicing him back then. Why blame the old man blame his close man, it's point less to point fingers at the former president because that doesn't change anything.
those who were there also should be blamed for enforcing developments..

Mutsvangwa is empty upstairs, his mentality shows we have the wrong people in political offices as we speak. Mutsvangwa has been part of zanupf since before independence, he has been sitting in the decision making bodies of zanupf and gvt for ages, the failure to plan is not a one man responsibility, it's a collective responsibility. Idhi has been in cabinet since independence and can't be exonerated from what zanupf and it's gvts have been doing since then.
Mustvangwa thinks we are all fools, right now instead of focusing of the energy crisis affecting the nation they have given each other loans of $500k, $350k and $40k, with that they can install the best solar systems and power generators available on the market, they will never think of Zesa they will never know blackouts and they will never think of fixing the power shortages. For the povo it's indoda iyazibonela for them it's us taking care of their welfare.
What are we getting for keeping these people in office?

Mutsvangwa is right in saying tht Mugabe is responsible for the power crisis and others we have in country. What he omits is that 80 % of the politicians and bereaucrats we have in gvt (including Chris) were part of tht gvt. He was an ambassador to China at one point. He was a cheerleader to Mugabe. Mugabe could fart and they will be clapping hands. The current president was a very senior politician during Mugabe s era and Mugabe dd nt make decisions alone. At one point they said they d die for Mugabe the same way the are saying they will die for the current leader.

In the United States of America there is a plaque which announces "The buck stops here", meaning that the President of the USA is accountable for everything that goes on in the nation. Meaning that the President cannot blame anybody else for anything that goes wrong in the nation. That is accountability.

In our basket case called Zimbabwe, Mugabe used to blame everything on colonialism. We got so indoctrinated about "Zimbabwe will never be a colony again" mantra. Yet we never acknowledged the sound infrastructure of inter alia, roads, dams, electricity, water, railways and airlines that the Smith regime endowed us with. With the passage of time we began to blame sanctions.

The new Deception came in, riding on sanctions which is wearing thin. ED started blaming sabotage by business, opposition, civil service, and literally everyone else. Now that doesn't wash anymore. The latest is to blame Mugabe. Who else are we going to blame tomorrow?

When shall we learn about accountability? Until and unless we learn to say "THE BUCK STOPS HERE" we aren't going anywhere.

The situation in Zimbabwe is that of underwear. During the Mugabe era they were pooping inside the underwear, including the incumbent and we could not see it, however after Mugabes removal the underwater was put on inside out now all the 💩$hit stains are now visible for all to see.

The problem of power generation must be solved at regional level. SADC must not exist to protect some errant leaders but must come up with synergies for regional development.
