Opposition Parties Condemn Mnangagwa Over ‘Satan’ Remark

Opposition political parties have castigated President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s “blasphemous” remarks when he seemed to equate his administration with God.

In the same analogy, Mnangagwa likened opposition elements to Satan.

MDC president Nelson Chamisa’s spokesperson, Nkululeko Sibanda had this say:

President Chamisa is a prayerful and God-fearing leader whose interests are to rebuild this country’s economy and society. He does not equate earthly fiefdoms with the Kingdom of God. He is encouraged that Zimbabwe is largely a God-fearing country and will remain so.

Those who see themselves as analogous or similar to God will answer to God. The people’s president does not engage in unnecessary public insults, he remains focused in talking about the issues that affect our country, such as dialogue and all other action that can unlock political illegitimacy and drive us towards economic stabilisation and growth.

President of the United Democratic Alliance, Daniel Shumba, whose party withdrew from the Mnangagwa brokered dialogue, said:

That’s clearly an arrogant and vindictive view from a President who claims to want to forester unity but don’t take him seriously for equating himself to God, that is just a limitation of descriptive English. That is the best he could do under the circumstances.

Addressing journalist on Tuesday at the end of the South Africa-Zimbabwe Bi-National Commission, Mnangagwa said:

We will not be swayed by the negative forces because even the Lord upstairs was not able to keep his house in order, he had Satan. These things happen. He still remains there as a creator.
