Mahere tells Matutu, Tsenengamu to shut up

Mahere said Matutu and Tsenengamu, if they were genuine about tackling corruption and State capture, must fight for stronger and democratic national institutions instead of fighting from the corner of a Zanu-PF faction.

OPPOSITION MDC’s secretary for education, Advocate Fadzayi Mahere, hS warned Zanu-PF leaders Lewis Matutu and Godfrey Tsenengamu that they risked being used by “wasted old men” in Zanu-PF factional fights, only to be spit out as happened with former ruling party youth leader Kudzanai Chipanga.

Mahere said Matutu and Tsenengamu, if they were genuine about tackling corruption and State capture, must fight for stronger and democratic national institutions instead of fighting from the corner of a Zanu-PF faction.

Mahere’s comments come after the Zanu-PF Youth League deputy secretary Matutu and political commissar Tsenengamu yesterday held a press briefing at the Media Centre in Harare where they named three businessmen of wreaking havoc in the national economy through corruption and underhand dealings.

But Mahere was not amused, and challenged Matutu and Tsenengamu to instead direct their energy to fighting for stronger national institutions instead of fighting from the corner of certain politicians on Zanu-PF.

“Zanu PF youths have no agency of their own. They are lapdogs for the old, wasted men at the top for whom they bark in return for trinkets. Their poorly choreographed slideshows are a weak attempt to distract us from the real issues.

“We want food, fuel and forex.

Musatinyaudze ! (Shut up)
“Zanu PF youths learnt nothing from Kudzai Chipanga. These old men will use you then spit you out.

“You’re better off fighting for a constitutional democracy made of strong institutions so that you are safe when disaster strikes,” Mahere said.

Meanwhile, the Zanu-PF Youth League has distanced itself from the statements by Matutu and Tsenengamu, saying they were expressing personal views.
