Zimbabweans have reacted to an audio clip which purports that First Lady, Auxillia Mnangagwa, in a recorded phone call ranted at Zimbabwe National army boss, Lieutenant Colonel Murombo. The director of the Harare-based Zimbabwe Democracy Institute (ZDI), Dr Pedzisai Ruhanya believes the first lady’s remarks may result in chaos in the country. We present below a full thread.
If the audio circulating is that of First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa then Zimbabwe hasn’t seen anything yet. If it is true then Grace Mugabe was just kindergarten. I said it way back that Zim was in trouble with such an ignoramus First Lady. If true again, ED must rein this BS!
The state cannot be run in the manner Auxillia Mnangagwa rants against security forces. Remember Grace Mugabe once did the same nonsense. Zimbabwe is not a personal project. The conflation between the family and the state must be stopped. Lets create a Weberian ideal type State!
Pres Mnangagwa has a national obligation to put to order his wife. Her rants against one Murombo a ZNA member exposes deeper schisms in the party/state/military complex. This country deserves better than this Auxilia Nonsense. Grace did that against Chiwenga, ED, Charamba!
Auxilia has absolutely no right to attack security forces in the manner alleged in the circulating audio. Her language is uncouth, unprofessional and have grave consequences on cohesion in party, government and state. This lady must be far away from public office. Its sad!
ALLEGING that a member of the ZNA one Murombo wants to topple the President of Zimbabwe is beyond banter. Auxillia Mnangagwa must be schooled on how the state is run. What she did is dangerous, very dangerous. This country does not deserve this rubbish. She is brewing instability
If ruling class has lost its consensus, i.e. is no longer “leading” but only “dominant”, exercising coercive force alone, this means precisely that the great masses have become detached from their traditional ideologies, and no longer believe, what they used to believe previouslyThe crisis consists precisely in the fact that the old is dying and the new cannot be born; in this interregnum a great variety of morbid symptoms appear – Antonio Gramsci, State and Civil Society. Auxillia Mnangagwa rants captures this succinctly
Auxilia Mnangagwa is paranoid completely, it is the role of the security to know and then protect VIPs. Her rants are rubbish. She must know that she is not the State. This idea of attacking state workers as we hear by Auxilia is just nonsense. Stop it Auxxilia!
