MDC spokesperson, Luke Tamborinyoka has expressed doubts on claims that president Emmerson Mnangagwa is a trained lawyer.
Tamborinyoka says that decisions made by the president so far are indicative that Mnangagwa is not learned. He said:
For Emmerson Mnangagwa is not only content-free, despite claiming he is a lawyer. I have surmised in a previous installment that it is highly likely the guy underwent some paralegal course at a backwater college in the Copper-belt region in Zambia and returned home claiming to have a Law degree.
For how could a leader of substance, with proper legal aptitude, appoint more than the required number of non-constituency MPs, only to fire them hours later as he did to the likes of Chris Mutsvangwa soon after he pilfered his way into office in 2017?
Tamborinyoka further observed the lack of rationality in a number of other decisions which the president made saying a legal expert could not have done what he did.
He added that Mnangagwa who is “not politically charming” will “leave behind a legacy of emptiness” as already seen at the New York when he addressed an “empty auditorium” at the United Nations General Assembly and during the anti-sanctions march where “he once again indigenized the emptiness.”
