Information minister Christopher Mushohwe has come under fire from the Zanu PF Youth league for failing to defend President Mugabe zealously from attacks by party members and war veterans. Mushowe recently lashed out at Julius Malema, and penned a strongly worded statement when the South African had called for Mugabe to step down saying “Grandpa, it’s enough.”
The youths are peeved that Mushowe does not display the same rabid anger when locals attack Mugabe. The people who have criticised Mugabe, without attracting censure from Muchow include controversial businessman Energy Mutodi and war veterans leaders Victor Matemadanda and Douglas Mahiya.

We are also worried and concerned as youths league, but first we thank and we were impressed by the defence done by Mushohwe to our President Robert Mugabe after utterances by [South Africa opposition party Economic Freedom Fighters leader] Julius Malema. He came out clearand he defended the President, which I thank him for. He even had one hour [on national television] defending the President,
However, our concern and worry, just a week after Malema’s utterances, Energy Mutodi came out guns blazing attacking our President, but there was no word from our Minister of Information. Every week, Matemadanda and Mahiya attack our President, and there is no single word from the minister.
