When the Vice President (Dr Constantino Chiwenga) was introducing me, he missed something. When I became a border jumper last year, you who had remained behind refused to accept the situation.

…The next decision that was made at that meeting was to reinstate me and you said jump the border back into Zimbabwe to become Vice President again. Meanwhile, again, a revolutionary son from Matabeleland North chaired Parliament as Speaker, undoda lo ngu Mudenda and said the former president has abandoned his executive powers and we now want to impeach him. The son of Matabeleland North, uMudenda nguye owayesesi hlalweni for the impeachment process.
