President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s press secretary George Charamba has taken a swipe at western ambassadors and said they should not act like bulldogs who bark at the moment of rats in the attic. Charamba was referring to western embassies that responded to the abduction of MDC legislator Joana Mamombe.
Using his twitter account @Jamwanda, Charamba said:
These western ambassadors must stop behaving like officious bulldogs who bark furiously at movement of rats in the master’s attic. World over, States are known to err on the side of caution than theatrics. It gives dignity and weight to the voice of the State when that voice finally comes.
Such overzealousness gets many to wonder whether these loud-mouthed ambassadors are watchers or actors in this whole fake political drama by an opposition facing an existential implosion, and thus with every reason and urge to draw a red herring. Ndini ndadaro!!
If the EU Ambassador can’t be definitive on torture claims – and we have no genuine medical reports to this hour – why not wait? Why get moved by a lousy snooze in a much-needed hospital bed at this hour of Covid-19 pandemic. Let’s get real, Mister Ambassador. The African day is not in a hurry. You will have a whole year to press home your diplomatic vociferations. And doors of host State are wide open to hear your frets. Cool it, Mister EU!!
The EU and the American Embassy have condemned the abduction of the MP and other party supporters after they went missing while protesting in Warren Park.
