“ZANU PF Disowned Mugabe,” Alex Magaisa

Dr Alex Tawanda Magaisa, a Zimbabwean lawyer and lecturer of law in the United Kingdom has claimed that ZANU PF disowned Zimbabwe’s founding leader, the late Robert Mugabe.

Mugabe was fired from the ruling party during the military coup in November 2017 which toppled him from power. He was replaced by his long-time apprentice, President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Magaisa notes that the party went on to remove the “CDE” title which is a sign of inclusion in the party.

He added that it is ironical that ZANU PF is now trying to reclaim his body when they rejected him and associated him with the opposition MDC Alliance in a bid to make him a sellout. Magaisa added:

Ever the calculating and cunning one who always saw farther than most of his peers, he had foreseen how they would try to make political capital out of his death. We were told he had signalled his intention not to be buried at the National Heroes Acre, the site of internment for those they declare to be heroes of the nation.

The former adviser to MDC’s late founding father and former Prime Minister of Zimbabwe, Morgan Tsvangirai, further opined that the treatment Mugabe is receiving from the party he helped found shows how divided Zimbabweans are about his legacy.

Magaisa claims that some revere Mugabe whilst some found him monstrous.

  1. That is true ZANU PF disowned Mugabe now they want to claim his body that he was ZANU PF. He told them that he does not want to be buried at the Heroes acre his last days. Mugabe was removed on power by notorious military junta and they later declared ED as president. ZANU PF is under military junta control and military is the Zimbabwean pain on the ass. Zimbabwe was better off during Smith regime than what it is now. The corrupt cult party called ZANU PF is the problem at the moment. No one trust them because of their past. Mugabe wanted to die on power same with Mnangagwa also want to die on power. Removing a problem replacing with another worse problem.
    Bob will be buried at Zvimba rural area next to his mother,s grave that is what he said. He does not want ED to Preside on his funeral. ED must be aware of that by now.

  2. No one could take away the ZANU Pf from Mugabe or vis versa! The late Mugabe was just too old to understand reality. He was just no longer fit to govern the country, and trying to anoint Grace Mugabe as his successor just backfired. Why can’t people see this simple analysis!? The late Robert Mugabe was never under threat from his former colleagues in Zanu Pf and government ever since he was dethroned!
