In an interview with Voice of Africa Studio 7, former Public Service Minister Patrick Zhuwao said his uncle Robert Mugabe is being grossly mistreated by Mnangagwa’s Government. Zhuwao said that he has been able to sneak into the country a number of times and has had conversations with people who do not approve of the current administration. He said the current administration is unpopular and must be removed.
Zhuwao who is believed to be hiding in South Africa, also denied news that he sneaked into Zimbabwe in Mugabe’s company. He said he fears for his life and could not disclose where he is currently and pleaded with the media to report responsibly. Said Zhuwao:
Ndinofunga zvandingati ndikumbire ndezvekuti ivo vemapepanhau ngavavevo vanhu vane hany’a nenyaya dzehupenyu hwevamwe vanhu kuti vasanyanyokuda kufara kuda kukanganisa mararamiro evamwe. Vacherechedze zvavanokurukura, zvavanotaura nekuti nedzimwe nguva vanoburitsa zvinhu zvinoita kuti mumwe munhu azopinda patsikwende kana kutotsakatika,
Zhuwao said he hopes to return to Zimbabwe one day but only when President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s administration has been removed. He said the people of Zimbabwe do not approve the current administration and that Mnangagwa will not win a free and fair election and that he will fail to get 15% of the votes.
He said that people in the rural areas still yearn for Mugabe and want to know what became of him. Zhuwao said Mnangagwa’s Government is not legitimate and that he will not congratulate him for “robbing” the people of Zimbabwe. He said Mnangagwa has never won an election and said that he will not work with Team Lacoste and said those that are working with Mnangagwa are only selfish and are only concerned with their upkeep. Zhuwao said the time of reckoning will come for Mnangagwa and his cronies. He said Grace Mugabe was only retaliating when she attacked Mnangagwa.
