‘Mugabe Was Bad But At Least He Kept Prices Down & The Military Out Of Civilian Affairs’

MDC Alliance Bulawayo spokesperson Swethern Chiroodza said the late former President Robert Mugabe‘s life should not be celebrated as he presided over the massacre of thousands of civilians in the 1980s in Zimbabwe’s southern regions.

Speaking to NewZimbabwe.com ahead of the Robert Gabriel Mugabe National Youth Day commemorations, Chiroodza castigated Mugabe and his successor, President Emmerson Mnangagwa for being the authors of the country’s current problems. Chiroodza said:

Mugabe is the tale of a man who as President in post-independence, with Emmerson Mnangagwa as Defence chief, presided over the murder more of black people than the total number of casualties in the pre-independence liberation struggle.

Mugabe is the tale of a man who together with Mnangagwa and other Zanu PF leaders tried to exterminate the entire Ndebele nation.

Mugabe is the tale of a man who, in the words of Morgan Tsvangirai, reduced Zimbabwe from a bread basket to a basket case.

Chiroodza, however, had a few kind words for the late first Prime Minister of independent Zimbabwe. He said Mugabe was able to manage the overpricing of goods and separating civilian rule from the military, an apparent dig on Mnangagwa.
