n an interview with France 24 on the sidelines of the 32nd Ordinary Session of the African Union Summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia over the weekend, President Mnangagwa the violent shutdown protests were part of a regime change agenda.
Regime change is the better word. It is a regime change agenda which is not new, which has been a phenomenon visiting Zimbabwe throughout the past 18 years. We are now so satisfied that this thing was pre-determined, pre-planned and well-oiled by both local NGOs who are well-funded, but also the opposition MDC-Alliance whose theme even throughout the campaign for our general elections last year said that as long as they do not win this election, in Shona they said, ‘We will put jecha musadza’; meaning that they will put sand into the food. So this is consistent with that they have been saying throughout.
