Close to a decade ago, President Mnangagwa, while he was still the minister of defence, said before he turned to Jesus he was a trained killer. Newsday reports
Mnangagwa said this while addressing mourners at his brother’s funeral in Kwekwe:
For those of us comrades who were taught to destroy and kill and have seen the light in the last days of our lives, and will die in Christ, our rewards are in heaven. I am a gentleman and have found favour in the eyes of God because I have accepted Him with all my heart.
Mnangagwa who is called Ngwena(crocodile) has been fingered in the 1980s killings of Matabeleland people in a genocide known as Gukurahundi and he has over the last few years presided over a government that thwarts opposition protests with an iron fist despite describing himself as soft as wool.
