I am not coming back to Zim, My Safety Is Not Guaranteed Says Mugabe’s Nephew Zhuwao

Former President Robert Mugabe’s nephew and former Minister of Public Services, Patrick Zhuwao has said that he is quitting politics and will not be returning to Zimbabwe. Zhuwao claimed that his life is at risk if he comes back to Zimbabwe alleging that his farm had already been looted and that his farm workers had been severely assaulted for their association to him

In an interview with The Standard, Zhuwao, who was speaking from a secret location in South Africa, said:

I am not coming. When one looks at attacks launched on my farm and farm workers who were frog-marched and severely beaten just for working for me, it is enough evidence that my safety is not guaranteed. My farm was looted too.

People can say I ran away, yes I did. It’s better than to wait to be killed.

Zhuwao also said that he will always be loyal to Mugabe, and because of that, he was not going to get back into politics. He claimed that the only way he can get back into politics is by being disloyal to Mugabe and attacking him, as some of Mugabe’s former subordinates are now doing.

I am proud to have served under President Robert Mugabe.

I was loyal to him during his tenure as president and I even today I am still loyal to him, much than loyalty I could have exhibited as his nephew. From a personal point of view, I am grateful to those who stood by Mugabe.

My political life existed for the duration of President Mugabe’s tenure. The options that were there politically for me was to become disloyal to him and that to me was not acceptable.

  1. Lot to Mr Mugabe by taking a walk in his sacred forest and turning a blind eye to fellow walkers in the same sacred forest.ah !and befriending them also.?

  2. Its not like you were loyal. As his relative, you had NO option. He gave you positions just because you were a NEPHEW. Your security, surely can NEVER be guaranteed, because you said a lot of nonsense during the End Times.

  3. You wanted to steal in the disguise of indeginization.Some young men told you point blank that you can not represent the youth as your intension was to abuse funds.Whereever you are if it has been proven that you have a case to answer you are going to be fished out and brought to book.Regai kutaurisa baba imi.

  4. We are after you, your nosence defence is not sustainable You looted the country how did you amass all this wealth…musatanyoko we mudzimu wako
