The MDC takes great exception to the Minister of Home Affairs, Ignatious Chombo’s reckless, ill – conceived and careless statement, apportioning blame of the ongoing citizen protest to Morgan Tsvangirai.

Chombo’s misplaced utterances are typical of the Zanu PF regime’s culture of denialism of the deepening political and socio-economic crisis that the regime has created through decades of economic mismanagement,looting of State resources ,rampant corruption and misgovernance.

When Chombo and his fellow Zanu PF corrupt elites were involved in the unrestrained and unmitigated looting of state coffers and other public resources,they should have known better that the down-trodden and oppressed citizens of Zimbabwe would one day rightfully demand their share of the national cake.

The MDC is completely unfazed by such ill-conceived and unreasonable utterances by corrupt ruling party politicians in the mould of Ignatious Chombo. Instead, we call upon Chombo and his coterie of corrupt and failed Zanu PF regime apologists to listen to the people and immediately address pressing national issues such as the deepening socio-economic crisis where millions of young Zimbabweans are facing a bleak future of joblessness and hopelessness.

Chombo might be an unparalleled champion of corruption and looting but then,we would like to draw it to his attention that he cannot succeed in intimidating and bullying the toiling masses of Zimbabweans into accepting and sanitising an obviously corrupt system which has plunged them to unprecedented levels of poverty and penury.

The overly arrogant Minister of Home affairs of the illegitimate, bankrupt and crumbling Zanu PF regime is clearly behaving like a village bully and shameless political thug. Chombo should be reminded that one day,very soon,he shall be called upon to account for the loot and filthy wealth that he has accumulated as one of the leading members of the collapsing Zanu PF regime.

The people of Zimbabwe are not fools. They know, who, exactly, is behind their suffering and daily life of strife.
