Mutsvangwas under siege





Women Affairs Minister Monica Mutsvangwa claimed she is siege from political opponents following a series of tragic events which was worsened by the recent sacking of her husband from Cabinet and arrest of son Neville.


Mutsvangwa’s son was arrested when she was out of the country when her son was arrested, confirmed her misery while addressing mourners at the funeral wake of the late Nyaradzo Funeral Services Chaplain General Reverend Ellison Kamupira this week.


“I was out of the country when he (Kamupira) died. I really have a lot happening in my life right now but I saw it fit to come and give him a befitting sendoff,” she said.


According to sources, Mutsvangwa broke down when she visited Neville in remand prison and openly castigated unnamed individuals in government who she accused of targeting her family.


She was heard saying the target on her family was not the reason “we went to war” in apparent reference to her participation in the liberation struggle together with her husband who was recently fired by Mnangagwa from her Cabinet post where he was War Veterans Minister.


In a leaked audio last week, Mutsvangwa also accused unnamed political elements for her son’s arrest while questioning why they had to nab him at the time she had just left the country.


Observers say the sacking of Mutsvangwa, a once powerful figure in Zimbabwe’s political dynamics from the powerful position of War Veterans Minister was an indication of falling out of favour.


Mutsvangwa was Minister, War Veterans Association chairperson and Zanu PF spokesperson at the same time his wife was the Women Affairs Minister, making them one of the most powerful couples in local politics.


Their son, Neville, had his bail application dismissed by Harare magistrate Dennis Mangosi who advised him to return to court on May 30 for routine remand.


He was arrested together with Elias Majachani and Simbarashe Tichingana and are facing charges of dealing in foreign currency, trading in cash, money laundering and illegal possession of a Starlink router and antenna.


More so, Mutsvangwa was found in possession of 26 international debit cards which they tied to the crimes of money laundering.
