Activist and media personality Acie Lumumba, real name William Mutumanje, has said that he will be stepping away from politics. Lumumba made a name for himself last year after he made a series of Facebook Live videos in which he seemed to accurately predict political events before they occured. Lumumba was initially dismissed as a loudmouth who was seeking political relevancy until he made a video in which he “predicted” that president Robert Mugabe would not be in power in 48 hours time.
Speaking about his new focus, Lumumba said,
I took a deliberate position as the new president came in to take a step back from politics. I genuinely feel I have given politics most of my work in life, I gave everything a human being can possibly give to my political beliefs and I have served my time and would like to spend more time now building businesses, in enterprise.
I encourage and support young people who participate in politics. I think it’s the right thing to do. However, I would like to take a break. I feel like I went into a relationship, got married, it was abusive it was very painful and I got a chance to leave, why would I want to jump right back into it. I am really enjoying my time away from politics.
