President Mugabe has revealed that ex State Security minister Didymus Mutasa called him out of the blue last week to check on his health.
“Mutasa called me as I came in from Morocco and I spoke to him,” the 92-year-old ruler said.“He asked over my health and that of my family and I in turned asked over his health and that of his family. I also asked about the health of his mother-in-law who I had heard was not feeling well,” he told war collaborators.
“I also said to him, yes, it’s been quite a while, then I asked if it was all he wanted. He said yes, it’s all, but I am not stupid. I know there was something he was looking for,” he said.Mugabe went on to attack Mutasa, saying he was involved in massive corruption while he was responsible for the land reform programme.
“He gave only his relatives from Makoni land and he would be lying saying he supported me. His slogan was vaMugabe chete chete [Mugabe alone], yet he left the party without even telling me.
I just heard that he was gone but he never said anything to me,” he said.
