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.

15:38 President Mugabe says Prof brought evidence that ED made Godfrey Majonga jump out of a window after meeting at a flat in Harare. He says ED refutes the allegations. "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.

15:29 President Mugabe explains how the former VP would visit Apostolic Sects seeking to position herself to lead the party and country adding that he doesn't know how Prof Moyo and ED became enemies yet they were together in the Tsholotsho declaration. "Prof Moyo chose to support Mnangagwa to take over" and adds that ED told him that he was busy with other things and that's why he never went to the ill fated meeting.

15:24 "Josaya Hungwe and Saviour Kasukuwere once had an argument in the Politburo with Hungwe accusing Kasukuwere of trying to build up his profile for eventual takeover of the party leadership."

15:02 President Mugabe explains how he invited VP Mnangagwa to join him in the party after they had spent time in jail together. "Michael Mawhema sold out Emmerson when the latter bombed a train in Masvingo. He was supposed to hang but was saved by the fact that he was under 18 and the law did not allow for that. He then left for Zambia and pursued his LLB degree.

15:01 "This is the province from which Mbuya Nehanda gave birth to the liberation spirit. She refused to be converted even as she faced the gallows. She died with her beliefs and she assured her killers that she will be rise.

14:42 President Mugabe narrates how the spirit of Mbuya Nehanda led the people to take up arms and fight for their liberation. He says tribalism is something they nipped in the bud soon after gaining independence throughout the country. "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."

鈥淗owever, 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.鈥



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. 鈥淭his 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.

"We survive on farming and mining yet the artisanal miners are being arrested." He has also made a passionate plea that when the farms are downsized can the youth and women be afforded a chance to ben beneficiaries."
The youth are saying party regalia is in short supply
