“Mugabe Will Not Be Buried At The National Heroes’ Acre”: Chinotimba

Addressing supporters during a rally, Buhera South legislator Joseph Chinotimba (Zanu-PF) said former President Robert Mugabe will not be buried at the National Heroes Acre for “selling out”.

Chinotimba’s comments come after reports that Mugabe is behind the formation of the Ambrose Mutinhiri-led National Patriotic Front (NPF). Said Chinotimba:

If Mugabe and (National Patriotic Front leader Ambrose) Mutinhiri have sold out, then they are not fit to go to the national shrine. There are lots of people he denied the honour because he was in charge and was calling the shots. Sithole was denied the honour because he sold out during the war. Mugabe has sold out, he will not be buried there.

When contacted for comment, Zanu-PF spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo told NewsDay that the party will only comment on the matter when Mugabe dies. Chinotimba yesterday confirmed the utterances, warning Mugabe that he is playing with fire by making demands which include asking for his pension in cash at a time when Zimbabwe is going through a cash crisis. Chinotimba added that if Mugabe is no longer supporting Zanu PF, then he must lose all benefits.

  1. I am not a Lawyer or a Mugabe loyalist but people like Chinotimba do not know what they say because the Office which Mugabe was occupying was not a party office but a Gvt one and if we are to follow what the constitution says..Mugabe is entitled to a pension. This business of mixing party politics and Gvt business has led our country down the drain. A precedence must be set where the constitution of the land is upheld and party matter should be solved at party level not to spill them into Gvt business. Every Citizen has freedom of association..as long as you are not breaching the law and in that case Mugabe included..if he wants to be an NPF member it’s up to him.

  2. even you you should leave comments of mugabe to mnangagwa he not a jester like you the word vet does not give the right to be a judge let the new regime find its way without jesters

  3. Kkkkkkk kuvigwa kuHeroes acre hazvimutse munhu afa. Grow up Chinoz. Pple are interested in bread and butter issues. Not your hogwash.
