Opinion: VP Chiwenga Bitch-Slapped by the High Court

Today was a day of reckoning for the Vice-President Constantino Chiwenga who has trouble with his estranged wife. This being Mary Mubaiwa or Mary Chiwenga. Who has gone from being a bed-mate to brutal divorce.

Today in High Court, she has redeemed herself. Won the rights to the house, the luxurious car and the kids. The VP has to leave the premises and let her be. In mid-December 2019, the VP and his cronies was able to put her behind bars. Now, she has won in Court, a mere moth later. That is redemption and brutal bitch slap towards the all powerful VP.

The General, who has intervened in the proceedings with soldiers and whatnot. Intimidated the former wife and has been able to cause a lot of trouble for Mary. Now, bloody Mary have overcome the General and VP to humiliate him.

VP Chiwenga cannot be proud. His not allowed to interfere in the Orchid Gardens, neither touch her Toyota Lexus, Mercedes Benz S400 and Mercedes Benz E350 Black. All of them is for her to keep.

We can hope that the General have learned that your not using the army to settle, either personal or civilian matters. However, don’t expect him to learn. His not used at loosing. Anticipate more stuff in the coming time. This is not the end. His humiliated and lost in Court. He will retaliate. This man doesn’t accept things like this and will not let this be the final outcome.

VP Chiwenga will use his influence and ensure more trouble for Mary. Just like he did in December 2019. Especially, since she hurt his pride in the Courts today. The blind and naïve will think otherwise, but his a conning man. He will think of the long-con.

What is really striking here is that the General used the army and soldiers to settle matrimonial dispute. He thought this was a battlefield to take trained soldiers, to secure the well-being and shield his kids. That is what is really unique about this man. He used soldiers to settle grievances.

If he does this for his own kids, what will he not do to settle disputes across the country? What will be his response to anything, when he does this in his on matrimonial home?

Just think about that for a second and then you see what I see. Peace.

Zimbabwe: Constitutional Amendment No. 2 is a ballad of love to the President

Too much power in one mans hands

Is dangerous

She has never tasted freedom

And all the things

We take for granted

Then she looked at me and said

Son, Is this the end of our suffering?”Lucky Dube – ‘Is This Freedom?’ from ‘Soul Taker’ released: 2001.

The Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) and President Emmerson Mnangagwa is planning to control more and consolidate more power in the Head of State and the party itself, as they have gazetted the Constitutional Amendment No. 2. It is really a sad reading, as the intent is clear. To give even more power to the President.

They want the President to appoint the two Vice-Presidents and not have a “running mate” in the elections. That the Vice-President will be chosen by the President and appointed by him. Taking away the need for a VP in the elections. Also, giving the authority and the team around more directly taken from the President.

Just like the President can with the change of another clause, be able to appoint 7 Ministers outside of the Parliament, instead of 5, which is limited today. Making more way for possible cronies and loyalists from the outside.

Also, giving the President the authority to appoint vacant judges without public interview procedure. Even if he has to this through Judicial Service Commission (JSC), it still not stopping him from having more power and getting his people easily appointed without the public mechanisms, which was there before.

By just seeing these provisions or clauses in the Constitutional Amendment No. 2. says a lot about what the President and his men wants. This is to consolidate more power to the President and give him power to whose succeeding him and whose his “mates”. This is one more step for a one-man show.

I don’t even need to study the Amendment hard. The focus is clear. Give more power, get more cronies and ensure the judicial appointments are hand-picked by the President. There is nothing else too it.

So, if the Parliament votes this in, then they are all loyal minions of the President and wants to give him power. Because, they hope in the end, they will be compensated for doing so. If they go against him here, he will surely make these people suffer some way or another. Don’t expect him to give them peace of mind, if they don’t give him this.

The public should be worried about clauses in the Constitution, because it gives the President extended powers. It gives him more freedom and liberty to hire his people. He has less public scrutiny. That is a worrying sign. Not like the ZANU-PF is really tested in Parliament, but there was provisions showing something to the public before they we’re appointed.

I cannot see any provision made for the betterment of the Republic, only to empower the President. Nothing else. Peace.

Zimbabwe: ED wants the citizen’s to go vegetarian…

You should eat vegetables, they are recommended by doctors. Doctors want you to eat vegetables so that you stay healthy. Meat is not good at all. We have differed there; I listen to doctors, so I eat vegetables. They said vitamins are found in vegetables and potatoes. You see. I was advised that there are seven basic commodities which should not be scarce. We are going to make sure that these are found at affordable prices for our people. We are working on that, be patient. These things are being rolled out, we have the money to do that” – President Emmerson D. Mnangagwa on the 3rd January 2020

There are usually signs that your running a successful enterprise, when you have the options to choose and can even save something for a rainy day. However, that is not the case in Zimbabwe. Where the authorities are acting like everything is dandy, as they got the hand on the steering-wheel, while it looks it is rolling off a cliff.

The economic desperation comes hard with this one. That a President tells the crowds around him, as the citizen cannot afford meat. That they should continue to just eat vegetables. It is a reason why the state got subsidize Maize Roller Meals and other initiatives to try to get things to the public. As the citizens cannot afford the basics nor the needed consumer products. Food gets to costly and their options getting smaller.

That is why suddenly the President wants to sound like a Public Health Advisor or an Nutrition Worker. He is the man, who explains the values of roots, greens and whatever that grows from the soil. That these plants and vegetables are having nutritions values, which the body needs. This isn’t the sounds and whispering words of a President, but of someone who tells someone who has a deficiency or visiting the doctor because of fatigue.

So, Mr. President: “what’s up doc?”

What is the cure is it veganism and become vegetarian, leave all meat behind and also try to get fish. However, shouldn’t you ensure that people get protein and such too? There isn’t an substitute for that, not even with beans and lentils. So, when he says eat vegetables, his knowingly giving the public some deficiency and lack of other vital nutritions supplements in the diet, which meat has.

Nevertheless, ED and ZANU-PF will never say this, because they know they are loosing. The President should know how embarrassing this is and the sign it sets. This is not a sign of development or control. What it is signifying is a failing economy, a fragile agricultural output and lack of currency to export needed things. That is why meat becomes to expensive for the public. Plus the inflation and lack of rising salaries, make all commodities to expensive to the public too. Therefore, it is bad governing and the public is paying the price, as they cannot afford it any-more.

Mnangagwa, who are you to say these things? Veganism and vegetarians is that the new sloganeering of the government? Is that the thing of ZANU-PF for 2020?

If so, your failing and is abysmal at your job. If you don’t know that, now you know. Please, do quit your day job, Mr. President, your bad at it. Peace.
