Former president Robert Mugabe’s nephew Patrick Zhuwao has threatened to humiliate President Emmerson Mnangagwa in front of world leaders at the 48th World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland. Zhuwao who was a cabinet minister in his uncle’s government, is in exile, saying that he fears for his life since Mugabe lost power last year. However, that has not deterred him from taking potshots at President Mnangagwa’s government which he refers to as “coup conspirators and the terrorist junta.”
Writing in his weekly column, called the Zhuwao Brief Reloaded, the former cabinet minister says:
I actually saw the coup conspirators and terrorist junta’s senior officials at Dubai airport on January 20, 2018, on their way to Davos. Handei tione tonosangana ikoko (Let’s go on ahead to meet there).
ED’s (Mnangagwa) primary objective at Davos is the recruitment of more EDiots (a derogative name for the President’s supporters), who will be conned and deprived of their wealth and resources.
He will find #2018Resistance waiting for him there; working the conference behind the scenes, thanks to the experience gathered within Zanu PF.
The regime of the coup conspirators and terrorist junta is so kleptocratic that only EDiots will trust it, especially at Davos. #2018Resistance will be in full force at Davos taking note of those EDiots engaging and dealing with the kleptocrats of the coup conspirators and the terrorist junta.
“#2018Resistance to kleptocratic primitive accumulation will take to task any and all individuals, who represent public institutions like governments or listed companies and bring such untoward engagement and dealings to the attention of their various stakeholders.
“The regime of coup conspirators and terrorist junta is not only kleptocratic but is so ideologically vacuous that its only guiding principle is primitive accumulation.
The regime is made up of the very same characters that were cited by the United Nations report on the Plundering of DR Congo Natural Resources: Final Report of the Panel of Experts (S/2002/1146), with particular reference to paragraphs 27 and 28.
How can any right-thinking person take such kleptocrats seriously?
These kleptocrats are steeped in the processes of primitive accumulation dating back to the war in the Democratic Republic of Congo two decades ago.
Mnangagwa is one of only 10 African Heads of State, who have been invited to the WEF.
