MDC are liars: Langa

Andrew Langa

ZANU PF in Matabeleland South yesterday denied reports that its members issued death threats to an MDC councillor in Insiza North resulting in him fleeing his homestead.

Report by Nduduzo Tshuma

MDC wrote to Jomic on Sunday complaining that its Insiza North councillor had been issued with death threats.

But Zanu PF Insiza North MP Andrew Langa said Jomic was free to go and investigate the reports as there had never been any incidents of violence.

“That’s not true. Zanu PF is an organised and peaceful party that respects the rule of law and will win elections,” he said.
“We have a clear policy of non-violence as a province, in line with that of President Robert Mugabe.”

Langa, who is the Matabeleland South Zanu PF chairman and has been fingered as responsible for the threats, said it was impossible for him to condone violence as he could not win an election by intimidating voters.

Langa insisted that there had not been a single incident of violence in the area.

“Since the MDC has written to Jomic, the organisation is free to come and investigate the matter so that we know who is lying and who is not,” he said.

“I would like to urge the MDC to stop portraying our country as a violent nation to further their interests. That is wrong.”

On Sunday, MDC secretary-general Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga wrote to Jomic complaining about the intimidation of the party supporters in the area by alleged Zanu PF activists and the arrest of its members while conducting door-to-door campaigns at the weekend.

In a letter dated June 9, Misihairabwi-Mushonga said Zanu PF activists sent Nqaba Khumalo, their councillor for Ward 21, threatening messages, ordering him to leave his homestead.

Misihairabwi-Mushonga said Khumalo fled from his homestead and walked for more than 20km during the night to seek refuge from a relative.


  1. Beware of a company Chycry Trading a company in Bulawayo which claim to import cars on your behalf. On condition that you pay 40% deposit and they tell you we deliver within 21 days and the balance will be payable in 24 months. They always advertise in the local newspapers. What they do is they take your deposit and after that they start playing hide and seek. There are more than 20 people who deposited their money last year 2012 but up to now they haven’t received their cars or money back. The directors phone number Mr. Mutoreri (0772 712 583, 0777 150 776 or 0772 712 855) is always off he also owns Club Vegas999.
    They are located at 2nd Floor Parham House, J. Tongogara Street, between 8th and 9th Ave.
    If you visit their offices there is a Mr Tshuma who is a very arrogant fellow. The most painful thing is that they will always tell you that the car will be delivered after a few weeks, but these “few weeks” never materialize. He is never apologetic and repentant.
