The death of Zanu pf member Absalom Sikhosana marked the end of the sacked Deputy Minister of Information Energy Mutodi activeness on twitter.

Mutodi is well known for posting off topic issues and unverified positions of his party which led to the fight between him, his boss Mornica Mutsvangwa  and Foreign Affairs Minister Sibusiso Moyo over contradictory statements.

He also posted  negative about opposition members.

Before he was sacked from the Information Ministry, he posted defamatory statement on MDC Alliance Youths who were abducted and tortured.

He posted, "Details emerge MDC youths Joana Mamombe, Netsai Marova and Cecilia Chimbiri went out for a romantic night in Bindura with their lovers who are artisanal miners. They parked their car at a police station for safety but tragedy struck when they demanded foreign currency for services."

He has since deleted the tweet but we had already taken screenshots.

Mutodi's tweets now ends on 21 May, where Emerson Mnangagwa was presiding over Sikhosana's burial.

"His Excellency President Emmerson Mnangagwa has presided over the burial proceedings of Cde Absalom Sikhosana, describing the late National Hero as a loyal, humble & ever-smiling cadre & a champion of trade unionism. Cde Sikhosana is survived by a wife & several children", said Mutodi in his tweet.

From the day he was fired, he stops being on Twitter like what he used to be before. He even deleted the deputy Minister post on his bio to just a Member of Parliament.

Meanwhile, some organizations which stands for women's rights have written a petition to Mnangagwa so that he recalls Mutodi from Parliament over his sentiments towards the abducted women activists.
