Neville Mutsvangwa’s arrest: Former Foreign Affairs Minister drops bombshell, spills the beans


Zanu PF spokesperson commits “political suicide” by blaming Mnangagwa for son’s arrest

Former Foreign Affairs Minister Walter Mzembi has strongly criticized Zanu PF spokesperson Chris Mutsvangwa for publicly accusing President Emmerson Mnangagwa of authorizing the arrest of Mutsvangwa’s son, Neville.

According to Mzembi, “no one expects the Zanu PF spokesman to commit political suicide by finger-pointing his boss, President Mnangagwa” in this manner. Mzembi, who says he speaks from the perspective of a “victim and former minister,” asserts that “no political or high-profile arrests in Zimbabwe happen unless authorized by the President.”

Mzembi explains that this has been the case from the Mugabe era to Mnangagwa’s presidency. He states that “a Vice President, unless acting President, cannot authorize the arrest of anyone” without consulting the President.

Furthermore, Mzembi notes that “the President will also never admit that he plays this nefarious role, in public, to his direct or indirect victims nor to enquiring relatives or the public.” The standard response, he says, is always “‘Handisini, handizvizivi’ (It’s not me, I don’t know).”

Mzembi suggests that Mutsvangwa and his wife, Monica, who once held two cabinet portfolios simultaneously, should be “accustomed to this tradition and modus operandi” by now. He concludes that “there is no third force more powerful than the only force to authorize arrests in Zimbabwe, and that force is an enigma.”
