HARARE – Former ZANU PF youth league political commissar Godfrey Tsenengamu savages President Emmerson Mnangagwa while backing Citizens Coaliation for Change (CCC) energetic leader Nelson Chamisa at the CCC star rally held at the historic Zimbabwe Grounds in Harare’s Highfields surburb Sunday afternoon.
Tsenengamu who was among the guests at Chamisa’s rally was given a chance to speak by Chamisa and he denounced his former boss Mnangagwa before admitting that Chamisa is the people’s favourite.
“I would like to tell you that baba two or Garwe (Mnangagwa) is overrated l worked with him of late we thought the late former President Robert Mugabe was corrput and bad but we realized after endorsing Mnangagwa that he was worse than Mugabe hence we are here to support Advocate Chamisa because he is way ahead of us in opposition parties,” Tsenengamu said amid thunderous cheering.
Godfrey Tsenengamu in November last year launched his own political outfit, the Front for Economic Emancipation in Zimbabwe (FEEZ).
The youthful FEEZ leader played an instrumental row in selling Mnangagwa’s Team Lacoste brand during the factional wars that rocked the Robert Mugabe led ZANU-PF between 2016 to 2017.
Prior to the coup that toppled Mugabe, Tsenengamu had been in and out of police detention as he used to hold press conferences propping up Mnangagwa’s admiration over corrupt tendencies.
In most cases, the police detectives from the law and order would lie in wait only to pounce at him after addressing the press.
Chamisa also called the late Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) founder Morgan Tsvangirai’s son Richard who remained with Chamisa’s party after the new formation.
“I did not impose my self as the leader of opposition l was endorsed by Tsvangirai and he told me to lead people to Canaan and today we have his son who is moving with us in this yellow party Richard come foward,” Chamisa said.
When Richard came to the podium he urged people to vote for Chamisa since the economy was collapsing.
“Our economy is so pathetic look at the education system, transport and other sectors it is not fashionable to be here but we believe President Chamisa can redeem the collapsing economy,” Tsvangirai said.
However, Chamisa did not take long to address his people as he said the party’s ideology is still being worked on from the grassroot level and soon they will tell the people their road map.
Chamisa’s star rally was attended by over 30 000 people despite police blocks some party supporters to access Zimbabwe Grounds.
