Addressing mourners at the burial of national heroine Gogo Maria Msika at the National Heroes Acre today, President Robert Mugabe attacked “economic saboteurs” saying
Ndovaya vakataurwa naJesu pa last supper kuti vandinodya navo ndovachandipandukira. Vana Judas Iscariot varipo pakati pedu. Ivavo kongativadzukureika, tivanyadzise. Ivavo ndovanoda kuti kudzipurwe hurumende, kuuye vamwe. President vabve pachigaro. Ko ini chigaro ichi handina kuita zvekubvuta, ndakachipiwa nevanhu, ndechevanhu saka handidi nacho.
(They are like Biblical Judas Iscariot, who Jesus talked about during the last supper that he will betray him. We have such people in our midst but we should uproot and shame them. They want regime change but I am saying I was given the mandate to rule by the people so I am vacating the post.)
Mbuya Msika was the widow of the late vice president Joseph Msika.
