Former Foreign Affairs minister Walter Mzembi, who is now living in self-imposed exile in South Africa, has said MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa avoided taking tea during cabinet meetings during the GNU era for fear of being poisoned.
Chamisa and Mzembi were cabinet ministers during the all-inclusive government between 2009 and 2013.
Mzembi suggested that opposition political activists, and even ruling party bigwigs who have succumbed to cancer may have been poisoned, therefore, jailed activists should be wary. Mzembi posted on Twitter:
I sat next to Nelson Chamisa in Cabinet, he drank Fanta while we guggled tea for the 5 years and explained to me his poison fears. However, his reference to Mugabe may mean the System and its targets, look where I am, happy he pronounced himself on this!
Casper Tsvangirayi, Dr Patson Dzamara phoned me apprehensive about these cancers which only attack you after incarceration, I have warned Job Sikhala of the same, no food, water etc from prison and asked him to warn his colleagues inside.
This issue of biological agents and other suspicions may sound like a myth but it’s real, in the last two years of my Cabinet sitting I had stopped teas as well, it may have been too late, the Silver Jug of ice-cold water for each member was suspect too!
One sitting I exclaimed in horror when I opened my Silver Jug and found a thick bed of dead black cockroaches at the base, fumed at Mapingire and staff how this could be, but it was my first hint Chamisa could have been right.
Take stock since 1980 causes of death of Cabinet Members, gastrointestinal disorders and accidents, Zanu PF is cannibalistic, before we even go to Opposition, isinjonjo as they say it amongst themselves, a game of elimination!
Meanwhile, President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s spokesperson, George Charamba, has laughed off Sikhala and Chamisa, saying they are in a competition for victimhood. He said:
There is an uncanny competition for victimhood between one Jobho-drops-from-ceiling-Sarowiwa, and one partyless-Nelson-Wamba-Chamisa, for victimhood.
The one purports to write – in bad English – from Chikurubi, hoping for incarceration fame; the other claims he never tested any tea during the MUGABE days!
Both hope the internally competing acts within their sharded MDC brings fame and recognition!
Meanwhile, the rest of Zimbabweans know them for what they truly are: little men pimping and trawling for undeserved fame!
