“You Will Never Win That Spiritual War,” Mugabe’s Nephew Warns Mnangagwa

Exiled Patrick Zhuwawo, the nephew of the late former president of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, has warned president Mnangagwa against violating deathbed wishes of his uncle saying that they would be attracting the wrath of the vengeful spirit (ngozi).

Writing on his personal blog, Zhuwawo said:

As muzukuru and dunzvi (nephew) of the Gushungo clan, I am very aware of the spiritual power that vanaGushungo have over matters to do with their wishes, traditions and legacy. Let those who think they can torment President Mugabe’s departed soul and subjugate the wishes of the Gushungo ancestors know that they are inviting the spiritual wrath of the whole clan. Be warned; you will never win that spiritual war; kuzvikokera ngozi (that is inviting a curse on oneself).

His remarks come when the government and Mugabe’s family are reportedly conflicting over where to bury Zimbabwe’s founding leader. The State, by all means, wants Mugabe buried at the National Heroes Acre whilst the family is reportedly demanding that he be buried at his rural home in Zvimba.

Some reports, which were refuted by Mugabe’s nephew and family spokesperson, Leo Mugabe, suggest that Mugabe announced before he died that he would not want to be buried at the National Heroes Acre merely because he does not want those who removed him from power (Mnangagwa and army) to preside over his funeral.

Mugabe resigned in November 2017 following the army’s Operation Restore Legacy saying that he wanted to avoid bloodshed in the country.

  1. But traditionally, they can do “kunokora ivhu“ and simulate another grave at Zvimba. How was Chief Tangwena buried to satisfy whatever spiritual politics? We had a member of our family who died in the bush during the our armed struggle. We brought his spirit home by going through the traditional rites. Muzukuru may not be Shona and not aware of how such contradictions can be resolved.

  2. I guess Patrick Zhuwawo also acknowledges the power of the spirits of those the late Robert Mugabe also tormented. What’s so special about the Gushungo spirits!? Actually they are misguided spirits, ngozi chaidzo as they made the late Mugabe into a monster!

  3. Regai avigwe kumusha kwake chete. Munomutambudzirei mweya wake. Moda kutambudza mweya wemudhara uyu kangani. Hamuguti kutuka vanhu neiko.Munonyepa sitereki kuti akazobvuma kuiswa paHeroes.

Zvinhu zvese ndezvekumanikidza chete nokunyepera rudo kumufi. Haa hamunyari so. Iye Emmerson kusanyara chete.
