If You Have Issues With The Military, Take Up Arms And Fight – Mutsvangwa

Contributing on the topic ‘Making Elections Make Sense’ debate organised by Zimbabwe Election Support Network (ZESN) in Harare, Mutsvangwa said those that have an issue with the military in Zimbabwe should go into exile and take up arms to fight it.

Mutsvangwa was speaking on the apparent presence of the military in rural communities ahead of the 2018 Harmonised Elections. He said as young people that’s how they had dealt with the Rhodesian government and army:

If you have any issues with the military and you hate them so much, I have got one dictum for you, we had a military which we hated as young people; it was called the Rhodesian Army. We decided that we didn’t want it, but we could not deal with that army on the Zimbabwean soil, we had to go into exile as young people to Romania, Russia, China, Yugoslavia and Cuba, trained there and came back and fought it. If you have got issues with the Zimbabwean army, if you have issues with the Zimbabwean State, that’s how we removed it from power. So stop bringing it into the electoral playing field.

Our problem as Zanu PF is how do we improve the lives of Zimbabweans; there is no military which will decide the election but voters. All this hullabaloo about the military, the military, is being made by losers who cannot even win one vote.

  1. Mutsvangwa you are such a confused idiot. Your military junta lead gvt is busy preaching peace. What peace are you talking about when issues are brought on the table you call for war.

  2. When you went to war it was because you had no vote. Now there’s 1 person 1 vote why do young people have to go to war?! What an idiot. Please stop talking about war, we are past all that.

  3. Well put Mutswangwa when Mugabe was dethroned it was by the same army and no civilian was killed they were friendly. The SECURITY of the COUNTRY is seen by the Government and Chamisa cannot say today his people will not resort to violence because they are not under a command of one per5. THE Zimbabwe army has a commander and are accountable to the world at large they have demonstrated they are a disciplined arm. Now why should people be afraid of the Army if they had e ulterior motive? As a former soldier during the 1980 Elections we were deployed for peace keeping and the British monitoring forces were there to see that everything was peaceful when Mugabe won the Rhodesian Army Suported him because he was the Government of the day even when Davengwa Zipra tried the Entumbane uprising it was the exRhodesian ARMY that crushed them in support of Mugabe’s because he was the prime minister. CHAMISA AND COMPANY MUST be aware if they lose elections and they cause problems they will be kept In check by the Army. If he wins he will be supported. Word o advice Chamisa stop trashing the Army they are for a stable Zimbabwe. ED has said if he loses he will step down because Zimbabwe comes first you on the other hand have never made such a statement to say if you lose you will accept defeat. Again one thing that aches and pains me is if you win you will go on the podium and declare yourself commander in chief .I think we must chance the constitution to make sure that if s civilian President wins the elections he becomes head of state but should not be given commander in chief of the Army look at what Mugabe did he was a civilian commander in chief went and helped Kabila and got some ZIMBABWEANS killed he even wanted to put the police support unit against the army a recipe for s bloody conflict. If Chamisa wins he must undergo military training before he calls himself commander in chief. I see parallels between Chamisa and Robert Mugabe he is already criticizing the judiciary he talks of appoitng a running mate he kicks out people like Khupe as if they are nothing into end it’s going to be a 1 man show like Robert Mugabe and he lies just to get what he wants there is more bits foot Mr Instant Coffee Chamisa is going to pull out oath hat to fix our economy it will need pain yet he is already promising people a garden of Eden. People BEWARE protocol dictates that we pay our debts even if taken under Mugabe’s watch Chamisa seems to mislead people that the debts will simply disappear Ngwarai mupwere uyu will lead us into oblivion not Canaan

    1. I did not know we had so many Zanu pf leaders in dire need of psychiatric attention.Mutsvangwa should should be asked to restract his senseless utterances.

  4. Those comments are characteristic of an arrogant government and sooner alienates the regime from the population it purports to have fought for as always said. Better said it borders on anarchy and unbriddled culture of revolutionary grounded dictatorship over an overly oppressed people. Yet Our Almighty Lord the God of Abraham carefully watches over all of us through all these wonderful utterances …..in anycase revolutions including Zimbabwe Liberation war started in Heaven and God knows where it must lead Zimbabwe and not some speculative veterans we are priviledged to listen to every other second that goes into the past. .
