President Robert Mugabe yesterday attacked the chairman of the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission, Elasto Mugwadi, saying he was a stupid man.
Mugwadi had said Zanu PF was denying opposition supporters food aid. He said this was proved by investigations they had carried out in Bikita East, Buhera North, Mazowe Central and Muzarabani North and South as well as Zvimba South.However, President Mugabe said: “And the information which some stupid people and stupid spokesman of, is it human rights (Commission) that comes out to say grain is distributed along party lines is completely false, absolutely false!
If grain is going to party people and only to them, how are the others surviving there? Kungoda kuita maheadlines chete internationally and havanyare vanhu vanotaura nhema dzakadaro.“Nditwo twumari twavanopihwa. Shame!
I am sure we all must salute ourselves on the work we are doing in this disregard. Our Labour Minister (Prisca Mupfumira) will explain to us (Central Committee members) the processes and position.
But for now, we still are faced with the drought and hunger in a number of places and so we continue to distribute grain to all areas worst affected by drought to ensure that no one starves.”
