President Emmerson Mnangagwa is the biggest thief, says Chimurenga music star Thomas Mukanya Mapfumo.
Mapfumo, whose hard-hitting songs have become legendary for speaking truth to power, accuses politicians of sending money to foreign banks. Mapfumo says Mnangagwa is the biggest thief in Zimbabwe and his juniors are emulating him which makes it difficult for him to reprimand his subjects.
Mapfumo added that political elites were busy destroying the country’s future by taking both the fruit and the branch from the tree yet they want to eat the fruit only.
Mapfumo went into self-imposed exile under Mugabe’s rule and resurfaced back home after the November military coup that ushered in Mnangagwa’s rule.
Some believed it was a sign that he was warming up to Mnangagwa’s rule.
However, Mapfumo has not changed his stance against the Zanu PF government, blasting it for its failure to restore the country’s economy.
