Mugabe’s Eldest Comes To Daddy’s Defense On Social Media, ‘You Cannot Fire My Daddy, Never’

 

 

Chatunga Bellamine Mugabe, Robert’s eldest son by second wife Grace, wrote on Facebook:

‘You can’t fire a Revolutionary leader! Zanu PF is nothing without President Mugabe.”Proud of you Gushungo. Proud of Dad. Gushungo always and forever to death.’

Chatunga and Robert Jr are known for their party-hard lifestyle funded by their father’s money which they regularly flaunt on social media.

Just after, Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe made a broadcast to his people on Sunday night, but he did the unexpected: he did not resign as widely expected.

Instead he said he would preside over a ZANU-PF congress next month even though the ruling party had removed him as its leader hours earlier.

The broadcast was witnessed by the military leaders who had taken control of Zimbabwean affairs, but who kept denying that they had executed a coup.

ZANU-PF had given the 93-year-old less than 24 hours to quit as head of state or face impeachment, an attempt to secure a peaceful end to his tenure after a de facto coup.

Mugabe said in a address on state television that he acknowledged criticism against him from ZANU-PF, the military and the public, but did not comment on the possibility of standing down.

It was widely thought that Mugabe would have no choice but to go after the army seized power, opened the floodgates of citizen protest and his once-loyal party told him to quit.
