ZANU PF Political Commissar, Victor Matemadanda who is also the Deputy Minister of Defense and War Veterans has described as stupidity and desperation, the offer by Julius Malema, the leader of South Africa’s Economic Freedom Fighters to mediate between President Emmerson Mnangagwa and Nelson Chamisa.
Speaking to the Chronicle in an interview in Bulawayo, Matemadanda said that Malema was being paid the same way the Generation 40 (G40) party was being paid to champion the interests of Western countries. He said:
The Tysons, the Jonathan Moyos are being used. (Economic Freedom Fighters leader Mr Julius) Malema (from South Africa) has also been put in the same line.

He becomes a big brand that boy, that stupid young boy thinks he can negotiate, he goes at the centre of vaMnangagwa and Chamisa and says you guy come I want you to make a settlement, what stupid thinking is that. Where does Malema come from in the revolution of Zimbabwe?
Malema had offered to mediate so as to solve the standoff that exists between the ruling ZANU PF and the MDC over the 2018 elections.
Some analysts have said that the impasse caused and or was worsening the country’s socio-economic crisis.
