Zanu-PF MP for Harare East Terence Mukupe has explained why he turned into a fierce critic of former ally Saviour Kasukuwere, the man who helped him to win the by-election.

I have so much respect for NPC Kasukuwere as he is definitely an up-to-date card-carrying member of Zanu PF. My misunderstandings with him are purely ideological and his clear lack of understanding of the mood of the masses.
I’m afraid if he does not reconnect with the grassroots, the army and especially the war veterans, he will be found on the wrong side of history, which will be a tragedy of epic proportions given his zeal for Zanu PF.
NPC Kasukuwere is a good person when you get to know him, but the problem is how Prof Jonathan Moyo supposedly manipulates him and makes him do stupid things without thinking, some of which I’ve witnessed first-hand.
He needs to humble himself and reconnect with the masses and leave name-calling and antics of aloofness to Prof Jonathan Moyo, who really is a non-entity with the grassroots.
