“Chris Mutsvangwa Is Ungovernable” – Mzembi

Walter Mzembi, Zimbabwe’s former Tourism minister, has opined that Chris Mutsvangwa was fired as Minister of Veterans of the Liberation Struggle Affairs because he is ungovernable and does not respect the authority of others.

The Deputy Chief Secretary of Presidential Communications in the Office of the President and Cabinet, George Charamba announced Mutsvangwa’s removal from office on Saturday 3 January 2024 but did not give reasons for the dismissal.

In his response to Mutsvangwa’s dismissal, Mzembi said:

So many theories are being thrown around as to what may have led to Cde Chris Mutsvangwa’s abrupt dismissal by @edmnangagwa President Mnangagwa. I proffer my own based on what led to his dismissal by Mugabe in 2016.

It’s simply that Chris is ungovernable and does not submit to the authority of anyone let alone the collectivity of Cabinet and the President. He is an all knowing man of many words who does not know when to mute himself.

On several occasions inside Cabinet in 2016, he would take on Mugabe to an embarrassing point where @edmnangagwa himself then Vice President would be the only one able to silence him with the strongest rebuke and I quote his below;

“Chris, Chris I said shut up, shut up Chris, I am your Commander Chris I order you to shut up!”

At this point Chris would pack his Cabinet file and leave in a huff!

Mugabe believed in the superiority of ideas and would allow exhaustive debate on any item, but our brother Chris knowing it all, would roughshod over everyone at which point Mugabe would come in to exercise his authority as Chairman to restore order & decorum and the Minister of War Veterans would refuse to recognise that authority.
