The Zanu PF organs comprising of the Women’s league and the Youth league have called on former President Robert Mugabe to “leave us alone” following his media comments at his 95th birthday celebrations where he took a swipe at President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s administration.
The Zanu PF Women’s League threw the first punch on Thursday saying alleged media reports by the former president are “calculated to bring instability in the country and put the reputation of the President in disrepute.”

RGM looted from this country, recently his workers stole millions of US dollars from his rural home and he owns many farms at the expense of other Zimbabweans,” Zanu-PF’s secretary for Youth Lewis Matutu said.
“Zanu PF youth league would like to put it on record that former President RGM has crossed the line and no longer have our respect. President Mnangagwa should stop treating this bitter, greedy and selfish old man as a small god because he doesn’t deserve it.
“Unlike other former Presidents in the region and beyond former President RGM has proved to be selfish, he wanted to die in office as if he is the only Zimbabwean and he can’t even be ashamed of his
misrule and nepotism that was so tribal and divisive”
The Zanu PF youth wing which wanted Mugabe to die in office as the party continued to temper with the two-terms majority presidential limit said Mugabe must let go.
“He must allow Zimbabwe to move on understanding that he was never a life President. We all have old relatives but they don’t behave abnormally and irresponsible, he used to be a patriot and he must
remember the need to respect those in authority as he was also
