On Sunday morning, 24 February 2019, the world woke up to the most unpalatable and distasteful utterances from former president, Robert Mugabe. While celebrating his 95th birthday at his Blue Roof Mansion, Mugabe did the unthinkable by attacking President Emmerson Mnangagwa for alleged human rights abuses.

Since the formation of the MDC in 1999, that party has been riddled with power struggles. First it was the late MDC leader, Morgan Tsvangirai who was elected at the inaugural party congress in 2000. Tsvangirai repeatedly lost elections in 2000, 2002, 2008 and 2013, but was not prepared to relinquish that post to anyone, arguing that the party could not change the battalion leader mid-battle.

Former President Robert Mugabe celebrated his 95th birthday last week, a befitting occasion indeed for a man whom God granted the gifts of not only good life as a President of Zimbabwe for 37 years and seven months but also a long life as well. Instead of worshipping God for such unparalleled blessings, the old man chooses bitterness and being vitriol-tongued.

Christened President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s “secret weapon” during the 2018 electioneering, her messages and deeds resonated well with a significant percentage of the “silent vote” – the people that do not come to rallies. However, to her, it was not about votes but uplifting society as she had been in this line of work for some time. To the uplifted, she came across as a person conscious about social problems such as child marriages and cervical cancer and how they could be mitigated – the personification of the softer side of politics, a Fist Lady.

Recent utterances by former President Robert Mugabe accusing President Mnangagwa and Government of killing civilians and “feeding on death” expose sinister shenanigans by the old political horse. Speaking at his 95th birthday celebrations at his Borrowdale residence recently, Mugabe claimed that Government was indiscriminately killing civilians and anchoring its rule on repression.

The former President of the Republic of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe’s contributions to the country, pre and post-independence, can never be forgotten and his legacy will live on forever, which makes his rants at his 95th birthday celebrations at his Blue Roof mansion that much more surprising.

Wise sages observed that sometimes a person can cut off his nose to spite his face with obvious dire consequences. The MDC is behaving in much the same manner, inciting violent protests to score cheap political points. Needless to say, protests hurt none the most except the ordinary citizen on the ground, including the protestors themselves and their families and friends.
