Mugabe’s National Patriotic Front Fires Ambrose Mutinhiri As President, In Talks With MDC Alliance (Updated)

 

The Robert Mugabe endorsed National Patriotic Front (NPF) has fired its president Brigadier General (retired) Ambrose Mutinhiri. He was accused of setting up parallel structures and not attending party meetings. Eunice Sandi Moyo will be the interim president in the meanwhile. The expulsion follows the endorsement of Nelson Chamisa by the NPF at the MDC Alliance demonstration on Tuesday.

Said Eunice Sandi Moyo,

He does not attend meetings. We send him communication but he does not reply. Now we do not know whether he had come to destabilize us or what

The only positive thing that Mutinhiri did was to resign from Parliament and nothing else. He was actually putting parallel structures as he didn’t want to work with others. He has not been active in the party.

NPF spokesperson Jealousy Mawarire denied reports that Robert Mugabe and his wife Grace were members of the party. He insisted that they only offered advice to the party as the party’s leaders frequently consulted them.  The party said that it was in talks with Nelson Chamisa’s MDC-T to join the MDC Alliance. Said  Mawarire,

We are in talks for the coalition, the talks are at an advanced stage, we will make a joint press statement maybe early next week or even Saturday.

Mutinhiri’s days appear to have been numbered from the beginning as there were reports back in April that former first lady Grace Mugabe wanted him fired because she felt that he was not competent enough to challenge President Emmerson Mnangagwa or MDC-T President Nelson Chamisa.

This was followed by reports in May that former President Robbert Mugabe was planning to have Mutinhiri replaced by prominent lawyer Farai Mutamangira because he had failed to assert his authority within the party.

This is a developing story.  More Details will be added as they come in.

  1. I used to admire Welshman NCUBE but when I discovered he was the only MDC leader who had been given a,farm under the land grabbed from white commercial farmers it opened my eyes to the character of the man He is a political PROSTITUTE at that time it was tainted gift fromMugabe to split the strong MDC. Now he is making a veiled denouncing of Mugabe yet The NPF cane at the demonstration and were given centre stage. Knowing that Mugabe is anathema to any future government in Zimbabwe he is saying we can join forces with anybody to help u sit Emmerson it’s not about ED it’s about who can bring stability peace and turnaround the economy for the better of the people a d the bad factor is that the MDC has no campaigning money Grace has plenty there is the common denominator. For a party which says Zanu squandered money like afrodesia they sure know how go save money ?, ED was gracious enough to give 1.8 million of state money to campaign Biti left 217us in state coffers even then I heard Chamisa was against helping Saves family . Vanhu musavhotera zvimaKoronyera zvisina mari in 3 Years zvinenge zvaba Mari enough to retire. What have they got to show after being put in the Government of national unity to ending in women. SORRY I DON’T BUY THEIR LIES
