Robert Mugabe’s Nephew Applies For EFF Membership

Exiled former Zimbabwe Cabinet Minister, Patrick Zhuwao, has applied to join South Africa’s Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) as “a fighter and ordinary card-carrying member in a branch within Gauteng”.

The development comes after EFF leader, Julius Sello Malema urged exiled former Zimbabwean ministers to join the Red Berets to enhance their chances in “overthrowing” the current administration led by President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Speaking to City Press, the nephew to the former president of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe said:

Consequently, I have applied to join EFF as a fighter and ordinary card-carrying member in a branch within Gauteng Province. I am happy to work as a ground fighter. I do not seek elected office; as a refugee, I am not eligible anyway.

He said that his move was inspired by the desire to help “Africa develop a political culture that detracts from the entitlement mantra that has become so pervasive in liberation movements.”

Zhuwao and a handful of Mugabe loyalists skipped the country’s borders in 2017 when the late veteran leader was forced to resign from power.
