Deputy president of the breakaway MDC-T party led by Thokozani Khupe, Obert Gutu has threatened to go after social media trolls whom he referred to as social media terrorists. Gutu who seems to be a favourite target for social media critics and trolls vowed to single-handedly go after the trolls and to silence them one at a time. Writing on microblogging site Twitter, Gutu said,
I’m hunting you down…you paid mercenary social media terrorists broadcasting from within and outside Zimbabwe. I don’t fear you. I will come for you one by one until you repent from spewing garbage, insults and vulgarities. I will single-handedly silence you. It’s GAME ON!…Day of reckoning is coming very, very soon.MDC-T will be vindicated as a genuinely patriotic, progressive and democratic political party. When skeletons start tumbling from various hidden wardrobes, we’re going to be vindicated.
Gutu also said that he is never going to leave the social media site despite the attention from what he termed social media bullies. Said Gutu,
Pano paTwitter ndakagara zvangu kuti zete… Lol. Hapana kwandiri kuenda. I’m going nowhere! I have got the resilience and energy to take on the social media bullies one by one. Pound for pound, I’m taking them on. I will sent (sic) these bullies away crying and screaming for cover
