I Never Thought Chiwenga Would Do A Military Coup. I Thought We Had Educated Him: Robert Mugabe

Former president Robert Mugabe has said that he never thought that former Commander of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces and current Vice- President, General (Retired) Constantino Chiwenga would ever rise against him. Mugabe said that he honestly believed that the military generals, also called the Command Element, had been educated enough to know the perils of launching a military takeover. Speaking to various media houses, including the Zimbabwe Independent, on the events of the November Military Takeover, Mugabe said,

I didn’t think that commander retired General Constantino Chiwenga would do that. I thought if they had problems they would call and we sit down, talk and resolve the problem. We also thought that we had educated them enough and they wouldn’t do such things.

Mugabe also described the events of November 2017 as a coup d’etat, a term that many media houses and diplomatic personnel have been careful to avoid using. Said Mugabe,

It was a coup d’etat. It was truly a military takeover. I don’t know what you would want to call it.

Mugabe also said that the coup was not a project of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces but was instead a personal project planned and executed by President Emmerson Mnangagwa and General Constantino Chiwenga.

  1. Dindingwe rinonaka richikweva rimwe kana iron rokwehwa rakuti mavara angu……..
    Bob ngavanyarare Grace ndiye akatanga me Coup

  2. zvino ochingo vukura isu tichingo svusvura. Did this idit thing he was breeding yes man. Good they tought him a lesson. The shamelessness of this despot makes me puke!

  3. But it was a coup this was a coup can someone who is educated describe it, what was it, irreversible is not but as a country we can go back to a constitutional democracy not with Robert, not with the army commanders who instigated the coup as our presidents, not with SBM and Chiwenga as FM and VP, it taints everything as a coup, if they were genuine as they purportedly say, they should have remained in the barracks and say Mugabe remain home lets have a transitional government, hold elections in 2-3 years let the country country be lead by politics that was going to be something wonderful with ED as an interim President who will not seek elections as a presidential candidate, this was going to prove to everyone that this was a genuine concern to stop the suffering of the general Zimbabweans. But what happened another team of greed overzealous individuals have taken over and are surely keeping the little US$ from the fiscas to themselves, not only that they are busy mortgaging the country resources left right and centre. ED is on his personal ID 75years old soccer age, but what is his proper age, Mugabe is 94yrs soccer age, we are tired of being led by OLD PEOPLE S HOME SEEKERS. Yes, we can the youth of this country rise democratically without violence and take our country away from these guys who have been destroying and looting it for the past generation and 37yrs. Ngavatipe tione kuti tinoirasa here nyika yacht.
