15:49 President Mugabe says Zanu-PF now has more influence in the private media than MDC.

15:47 He says the situations in Midlands and Masvingo are different and the one that needs to be handled urgently is Masvingo while Midlands will sort itself out.

"The party leader will be chosen at Congress and as a lawyer, he says he will follow the law. "I asked where Lacoste came from and ED said he did not know. Kana chiri chiCup, chirasei. Zvino munhu angafira chiCup," quizzes Pres Mugabe.

When we appoint a Minister he wants to fill up job vacancies with his relatives and the people from where he comes from."

“However, we still have issues regarding tribalism. When we appoint a Minister he wants to fill up job vacancies with his relatives and the people from where he comes from.”



he calls Kazembe Kazembe and blasts him for calling for the ouster of Kasukuwere and declares that Kasukuwere is not going anywhere. His fault is that of refusing to support Lacoste

"When it suits you, you shout nepotism by when ED left his seat he left it for his wife."

She says she refused to take part in a demo that was being organised against ED

She says Cde Paul Mangwana claimed she does not understand the Constitution but she says she understands it well.

People in Masvingo claim there are no problems but problems exist in Masvingo and Midlands.

"People cannot go around claiming that our Ice Cream poisoned ED which hurts the brand (Alpha and Omega).

"I once told Mujuru and she said I am mad but where is she? I don't know of G40 but I know Lacoste exists.

"When ED fell ill, the rumour mill pointed to President Mugabe and Amai Mugabe as the witches. I am being blamed as the instigator and that I wanted to kill ED by poisoning him so that when he is dead, VP Mphoko will then act as President but that is illogical.

She says VP Mnangagwa has been complicit as he would be seen with expelled youths drinking tea and alcohol. Some bring cups written 'I'm the Boss' and when we see it we get angry.

According to the First Lady, since the appointment of the two VPs in 2014 there has been no harmony in the party.

"Many youths have used VP Mnangagwa's name to scold President Mugabe and Amai Mugabe. The youths were saying President Mugabe is old and should leave office."

She denounces Mutsvangwa, Mahiya, Matematanda and praises the youth league for organising rallies. Amai Mugabe says the work she does in Mash Central are a tribute to Mbuya Nehanda as she came from the province. “This is the province in which they exorcise demons.

He calls Mr Hove, Ashanti Gold Mine General Manager, who has assured the province that the stadium will be renovated.

Chipanga is back on the podium and urges the youths to register as voters. He says the state of Chipadze Stadium is appalling and does not deserve to be called a Stadium because it is just an open space.
