Joseph Makamba Busha the leader the FreeZim Congress (FZM) has cautioned Zimbabweans that voting for President Emmerson Mnangagwa will result in extreme poverty. He said that there is no reason to be optimistic as Mnangagwa was Mugabe’s protege for over 37 years. He added that Zimbabweans should trust people with a proven record. Said Busha,
When Robert Mugabe emerged from the bush war, he had not run even a tuckshop. We nonetheless entrusted him with state power because of the circumstances of the time, and look where we are today. Look where he has left us as a country.
Equally, his protégé [President Emmerson Mnangagwa] can only lead us to more penury. More so because of his 38-year apprenticeship under Mugabe. Is there reason for optimism under ED? Absolutely not. Tell me what he has ever run that has succeeded that can now make him succeed in running a country. Being a Mugabe protégé is the worst ever qualification. Zimbabweans must appreciate that running a country is like running a business. A CEO of a company must create value for investors. If they spend and spend the owner’s equity without creating value, the business is destroyed.
