1/5 Outrageous & false assertions were made at yesterday's Sapes Zoom debate on the implications of the recall of MDC-A MPs. For example Paul Mnangagwa lied that Zim's electoral system is based on the primacy of the party. Balderdash from a lawyer who claims to have co-led COPAC!
2/5 Zim elections are based on a first past the post electoral system. Party list results for electing senators & women's quota in the National Assembly, using a special "proportional representation formula" in the Electoral Act, rely on first past the post constituency results! Image
3/5 The only MANDATORY requirement for candidates in the 210 constituencies is that they must be nominated by at least five registered VOTERS in the constituency they're contesting in & must countersign to accept their nomination. The VOTER is thus more important than the PARTY! Image
4/5 Prof @drDendere is right & @DMwonzora is waffling. In terms of the law the VOTER, not the Party, is supreme. VOTERS vote for a candidate, not for a party. For a candidate to be nominated, they must be registered as a VOTER but don't need to be a member of a political party!
5/5 From a lawyer, @DMwonzora's inane explanation is breathtaking. The issue is not that the recall of MPs has not been done before by the MDC-T; but that for the first time, the recalls are weird as they're ZanuPF led via the Bench & Parly for a rival MDC-T that lost the poll!

1/24 Thank you @ProfMadhuku for an interesting but wrong opinion that s96(2) of the Constitution applies only to vps who're running mates & not current vps who're appointed. I offer my rejoinder because I triggered the debate👇🏿


@adv_fulcrum & @Wamagaisa
2/24 You fatally misunderstand the IMPORT of s96(2) by linking the public notice of a resignation of a vp to HOW they ASSUMED office, when it is about announcing a VACANCY that affects SUCCESSION to the Presidency; regardless of whether the resigning vp was ELECTED or APPOINTED!
3/24 I will elaborate on the above key point later, but first some points in limine on some surrounding observations. Firstly, I don't understand why you thought it necessary to present your opinion as an "extract from an academic manuscript". Is it a peer reviewed "extract"?

#KudosZimLive
1/17 It's outrageous & unfortunate that some quarters are alleging, with no proof, that @zimlive got the Mohadi audios from a #ZanuPF faction linked to the #CIO or #MID. The allegation is aimed at discrediting @zimlive. It's a bizarre case of shooting the messenger!
2/17 The bizarre claim is that, so as not to be duped by a ZanuPF faction as happened in the 2017 coup, the opposition shouldn't be excited about @zimlive's historic exposé of Mohadi's salacious phone-chats with women, one married, which led to his resignation as Vice President!
3/17 The claim is bizarre not only because its peddlers purport to know @zimlive's sources of the Mohadi audios, but also because they seek to appropriate and own @zimlive; as part of their political agenda, whatever that agenda is, in Zim's current toxic & treacherous politics!

1/9 Dear Hatred Zenenga
Editor, @HeraldZimbabwe

Hatred, I refer to your scurrilously defamatory story in the @HeraldZimbabwe today (18 January 2021) in which you allege that I face rape accusations. I take your scandalously false allegations seriously!

google.com/amp/s/www.hera…
2/9 Your story alleges that Mrs Sipho Mazibuko claims in a Facebook post that I "RAPED" her 11 years ago. Her attached Facebook post that I've seen alleges that I "SEXUALLY ABUSED" her, which I categorically & emphatically deny. You've elevated her "sexual abuse" claims to RAPE!
3/9 On 13 January 2021, your @HeraldZimbabwe published a revealing article about Mrs Sipho Mazibuko and her issues that I am attaching herewith, whose contents speak for themselves, as a background to your scurrilously defamatory story published today👇🏿!

1/6 @TeeMuchehiwa, nephew of @zimlive editor, @Mathuthu, was abducted on 30 July 2020 by Mnangagwa's Ferret Force, which tortured him for three days. The Ferret Force was/is looking for @Mathuthu to get him to name the source who fingered Auxillia Mnangagwa in the Drax drug scam!
2/6 This is part of the FERRET FORCE that abducted @TeeMuchehiwa. The team has been separated & redeployed around the country, to hide them. For example Frank Muzembe is now in Mash West; Innocent Chigona in Mash Central; Joshua Zingwe in Masvingo; Ronald Musarurwa still in Byo!
3/6 Another ferret in @TeeMuchehiwa's abduction who deleted his pictures when others were outed is Loveridge "Chief Svosve" Chinyanga, Officer in Charge of #CIO's Matapi station. He is said to be notoriously ruthless & muscles his way to be part of abduction & torture operations!

#MnangagwaAndAuxilliaExposed
1/21 I'm uploading herewith raw evidence which exposes Mnangagwa & his wife Auxillia as the barons & beneficiaries of money laundering & gold smuggling by one Mohamed Zakariya Patel. The evidence covers the period from 24 May 2018 to 14 January 2019!
2/21 As is often the case in such matters, the main enabler tends to vary either their name by use of different spellings or even use of different names. So, here you get Mohamed Zakariya Patel, or Mohamed Zakaraya Patel or Mohammed Zackaraya Patel commonly known as "Zaks Patel"!
3/21 The raw evidence consists of WhatsApp chats between Mohamed Zakariya Patel & Ishamaiel Mossa Lunat; along with key documents that backup the content of the chats. The chats specifically refer to "Number 1" (Mnangagwa), "first lady" (Auxillia) & "Pres (President's) Office"!

1/24 @MinisterSBMoyo's PA Lynette Mahlaba has been AWOL from circa Feb 2020 & not seen at the Ministry since lockdown. Staff say she's training for posting in SA or on maternity leave. Truth is SB lied to wifey that he fired his PA in Feb yet he moved her to a Kuda Tagwirei bldg!
2/24 The Kuda Tagwirei bldg is on 11 Argyle Drive, Newlands, Harare. That's where @MinisterSBMoyo, who has a private office there, has literally been hiding his PA from his wife, under the false pretext that he fired her in Feb; yet she's still with him on the Ministry's payroll!
3/24 It is an open secret in the foreign affairs ministry that @MinisterSBMoyo is in a relationship with his PA. Things came to a head in Feb when SB's wife said she didn't want to see the PA at the Ministry. SB then moved her to a Tagwirei bldg, but lied that he had fired her!
