ZANU PF Youth League vice chairperson, Tongai Matutu has lashed at out the United States of America (US) following a statement by the US Embassy in Harare which rebuked the government of Zimbabwe for its “harassment and targeted arrests of civil society leaders”. Said Matutu:
To hell with you a hypocrite and devil of double evil standards, you have imposed sanctions on our country, you are funding economic saboteurs against our country, you organize midnight meetings plotting on destabilising our country and now you pretend to care, really? Be ashamed!
The statement by the US Embassy in Harare that generated Matutu’s sharp rebuke reads as follows:
Harassment and targeted arrests of civil society leaders damage Zimbabwe’s reputation and economic future. We call on the Zimbabwean government to uphold its constitution, respect rule of law and foster an environment where all can contribute to the nation’s progress.
However, Matutu’s acerbic remarks towards the United States of America were met in kind by Zimbabweans on Twitter. Here are some of the responses:
Shame on you Lewis. You are protecting murderers & corruption. If the US doesn’t want to fund Zim why not China or Russia. Did they impose sanction on Zim? They know how corrupt yr bosses are. Yr comments won’t yield anything. Simbisanai muzvikona. Alby
Did they plot with you to remove Bob in 2017? Did they plot with you to give Wicknell millions in USD? Did they plot with you to bring Bond Notes? Khumbulani M
My concern with you Lewis is you need to go to school a little bit… Just to open perspectives. Your ignorance is legendary. You are a qualified dunderhead! Gibson Nyikadzino
