“You’re Not Fit To Preach To Us,” President Mnangagwa Attacked Over His Christmas Message

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has been denounced over his Christmas holiday message in which he wished “Zimbabweans and our friends around the world a peaceful and merry Christmas.”

Responding to the message, one social media user, @docfarai said:

You are not fit to preach to us about peace -Gukurahundi -2008 violence -Aug shootings -Jan shootings You were involved in all the above yet moda kutiita vana pano with the PR tweets. Tinyareiwo purizi, Xmas yakatama muZim coz of your poor governance. Dark Xmas is what we have.

Wishing all Zimbabweans and our friends around the world a peaceful and merry Christmas. God bless you all and God bless Zimbabwe

Fellow Zimbabweans,

During this time when we celebrate the life of Jesus Christ, let us internalise the values he left for us. The values of loving our neighbours, of protecting and caring for the poor, and of peace and unity.

Since the beginning of the new dispensation, we have worked hard daily, guided by these values. Indeed, at all times we must be guided by Holy Scripture, by a desire and determination for justice, peace and prosperity for all.

This Christmas, let us look forward not backward; inwards not outwards. Let us focus on how best we can look after our families, our communities and our nation. How we can make Zimbabwe a better place for all.

I know that many of you still suffer. I am not blind to your situation, nor am I deaf to your cries.

I commit to you that we will continue to reform with an eye on the long term; for we must not reform only for ourselves, but for our children and our children’s children.

We are undertaking deep, broad, and meaningful reforms. We have put the economic fundamentals in place. We have balance the budget. We are engaging the world. We are continuing to open up the political and media spaces. We are clamping down on corruption. And we are building a new Zimbabwe where the people come first.

Whilst we have much more work to do, my promise to you is that we will continue to work with modesty and humility, guided by our faith and scripture, day and night, to build a better future for all.

I wish you all a peaceful and merry Christmas. God Bless you all and God Bless the nation of Zimbabwe.

  1. “Let us focus on how best we can look after our families, our communities and our nation. ” You, Mr president have the task of looking after the nation. How can you, on the one hand, say you are concerned about the suffering of the people and on the other hand, be comfortable hiring extravagantly luxurious jets to travel the world?
    “We are undertaking deep, broad, and meaningful reforms. We have put the economic fundamentals in place.” Where? Only a few days ago the Japanese amn]bassador posed the same question and he would know better than I.
    ” We are engaging the world. We are continuing to open up the political and media spaces.” Again, what reforms? Which poilitical spaces are being opened? Surely you are not referring to POLAD? And media? What of the journalists who have been harrasssed, arrested? What of the doctor who was abducted?
    Mr President, we were not born yesterday. You cannot fool all of the people all of the time.
