Mugabe jetted in today to an anti-Didymus Mutasa demonstration with hundreds of party supporters calling for the expulsion of the former secretary for administration from the party.
Mugabe arrived with First Lady Grace Mugabe who is recovering from an operation she underwent after doctors discovered she was suffering from Appendicitis that saw her being hospitalized until Tuesday this week.
President Robert Mugabe returned home from his annual leave today and immediately fired a salvo at the party’s former Secretary for Administration, Didymus Mutasa, describing him as a straying grey ass and fool who can not be corrected.
Mugabe apologised for extending his stay abroad while his wife was receiving medical treatment.
“I would like to say we are sorry, we took a long time away from home,” he said addressing government, party officials and supporters gathered at the main airport to welcome him back.
In his address, Mugabe disparaged long-time ally Didymus Mutasa who was among a host of party officials expelled in a purge against allies of Mugabe’s former deputy Joice Mujuru.
“A stupid fool cannot be corrected,” Mugabe said referring to former presidential affairs minister Mutasa.
“There is nothing you can do to a straying grey ass. It’s a graying ass just braying. We have no time for individuals of little brains, disorganised, mentally deranged if not close to being insane.”
Mutasa issued a statement last week threatening a legal appeal against the expulsion and demotions of several Zanu-PF party officials including Mujuru and party spokesperson Rugare Gumbo.
Mujuru and Mutasa were accused along with several others of plotting to topple Mugabe in a sustained campaign of attacks by the first lady.
