MDC-T Manicaland provincial spokesperson Trevor Saruwaka yesterday urged G40 members not to apologise to President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government since they were exercising their rights when they supported former First Lady Grace Mugabe.
Saruwaka was referring to former Manicaland Provincial Affairs minister Mandi Chimene who reportedly skipped the border to Mozambique and is reportedly seeking refuge in Burundi after escaping Operation Restore Legacy. Said Saruwaka:
When people are in power they should remember one day they will wake up out of power, hence, they must lead with honour and restraint. She (Chimene) went overboard like someone who was intoxicated. Now she is out of power reality has dawned on her. Remember she (Chimene) is someone who was used to claiming that she was a powerful war veteran. So she should come back to Zimbabwe and enjoy her freedoms. Why is she running away? We used to tell her that there is no freedom in Zimbabwe and she was scornful. No one should apologise for expressing different views. So all these G40 members who have been apologising, they should stop and come and join us and fight for our freedoms.
