Zimbabwe: Political Rivals Blast Tsvangirai’s Rhodesia Craving

Criticising President Robert Mugabe and his Zanu PF party’s handling of the economy, Tsvangirai wistfully recalled his labouring days under Ian Smith’s colonial settler regime.”When I started work I was given $450.00 which was equivalent to the same amount in pounds. A dollar could buy 5 beers. We recall those days with nostalgia,” Tsvangirai told MDC-T youths at an event held in Harare Wednesday.Head gone!, said Zanu PF spokesperson Rugare Gumbo in response.”He does not belong to Zimbabwe, but Rhodesia,” Gumbo told the Herald.”This is expected from a mentally ill person. You cannot miss a colonial regime that exploited us. His approach and outlook is colonial and there is nothing you can do about such a person.”Another Zanu PF activist Christopher Mutsvangwa added: “This is the typical language of an Uncle Tom,” he said. “You can free a slave, but cannot take the slave mentality out of him as on announcing his new freedom he timidly asks who is going to be his new master.
