Tsvangirai Was A Sellout And Coward”:
Deputy Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Service Energy Mutodi marked the second anniversary of the death of MDC founding leader Morgan Tsvangirai by calling him a sellout and a coward. While many are remembering the former Prime Minister, Mutodi launched into an unrestrained and unprovoked attack on the man who died two years back on Valentine’s day.
Writing on social media site Twitter, seemingly out of the blue, Mutodi said,
"As we reflect on the life of Mr Morgan Tsvangirai, we believe he was a sell-out who fought to reverse the gains of the liberation struggle. For inviting sanctions, we view him as really a sell-out & a coward who believed whites are a better race than blacks."
Ironically, many members of the ruling Zanu PF party including President Emmerson Mnangagwa himself, have been pains praising Tsvangirai ever since his degree. Zanu PF senior officials have often praised Tsvangirai particularly when they went to criticize the current leader of the opposition MDC Alliance party Nelson Chamisa
Surprisingly, when Tsvangirai died in 2018, the very next day, Mutodi himself, wrote a very long post advocating for Tsvangirai to be declared a National Here. Part of the post which is titled
Politicians, political analysts and social media users were not amused by Mutodi’s utterances and quickly let the minister know what they think of him. Below are some of the responses to Mutodi’s post.
Mutodi got back last for his post
