Mthwakazi Liberation Front spokesperson Chrispen Nyoni has attacked President Robert Mugabe and his wife Grace for shifting their focus from issues affecting youths to dwell much on Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa attacking him for fueling divisions.

Nyoni said the Zanu PF political games are annoying to the extent that they openly pledge to make Mthwakazi peoples think that they matter when that is not true.

"It's a political survival scheme. Well we have come to expect this hate speech from them, about themselves. Mugabe, coming all the way to Mthwakazi to scoff at his own VP, who is a known Gukurahundi architect, was a method done to appease Mthwakazi people who seriously hate the man," he said.

"It was meant to add more hatred. Thus the following day, Zanu PF Bulawayo province endorsed his expulsion and other Mthwakazi Zanu PF provinces will follow suit to appease the oldman. It's so ridiculous to hear what they are telling us and we do not want to hear their dirty, we are not interested. Also, Mugabe's coming was to indirectly ask for help in dislodging Mnangagwa because all the Mashonaland provinces, to him, had endorsed the expulsion, so the Mthwakazi involvement was critical and critical for endorsement of their plan."

He said if friends have started to discredit each other openly, we see that as not a commitment to saying the truth.

"As time rolls on, they will start to accuse each other of being butchers of the Mthwakazi peoples during the Gukurahundi era. See what the Mutswangas of this world are doing. The Mutswangas are also trying to lure the Mthwakazi peoples to their filthy corner. Yesterday they were defending each other in Zanu PF while the Mthwakazi peoples were pummeled by them in favour of their tribal political skewed policies. Now they want to sweet talk the peoples," he said.

"To hell with that. They have no credibility on factual issues that spell our political discourse as Mthwakazi. They have no values that will coerce the people to start seeing relevance from them. They have become decadent and irrelevant to the political order that we are pulling towards. Mugabe was trying to be politically correct."

He said there is this notion again coming from other quarters that Mugabe aimed at diverting the attention of the peoples in this region away from the Restoration wave that has engulfed Matabeleland.

"That is true judging by what happened to Stanley Khumalo and team. The presence of the security personnel was still there, still trying to mop up the area as an after math of Mugabe's rally," he said.
