Khupe’s Former Deputy Slams Chamisa’s Remarks Over Mbuya Nehanda Effigy

Former MDC-T vice president Obert Gutu has condemned MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa over his remarks concerning the erection of a memorial statue for First Chimurenga heroine Mbuya Nehanda.

Gutu said it is disturbing that Chamisa should attack the government’s move to erect the statue saying statues of heroes are found worldwide even in countries such as Russia and the United States of America (USA). Said Gutu:

Such sentiments which Chamisa made have no place in our African culture, even in all progressive countries internationally, leaders there respect their founding heroes and statue of heroes are worldwide be it in Russia, USA, among others.

So it is shocking and disrespectful of Chamisa uttering that, we know in our Zimbabwean culture that is the norm that “Wafa Anaka” so it is disturbing to have Chamisa misfiring like that, this should be condemned with the seriousness it deserves.

Speaking during an online rally on Sunday afternoon, Chamisa called upon the government to prioritise the construction of infrastructure instead of effigies, which according to reports, will take over a month to erect.

  1. It is not surprising that Khamisa uttered in that manner. The West which holds the ideological mental strings of MDCA, killed and hanged Ambuya Nehanda. Khamisa is just playing safe to please the West. Did he criticize our government for mounting Chibwechitedza, Father Zimbabwe`s statue in the City of Kings?

  2. as much as mbuya nehanda is our heroine there are more pressing issues in ths country that need to be adressed building a statue when nurses are on strike , not even a paracetamol is found in hospitals honestly plzzzz
