Mugabe: African Union kow-tows to West
Mugabe: African Union kow-tows to West

President Robert Mugabe believes African Union policies aim to please the West, and says he will make the body a global leader if he becomes its chairperson.

Cape Town – A staunch Zanu-PF loyalist and war veterans' leader Jabulani Sibanda has urged Zimbabweans not to vote for the Movement for Democratic Change in the upcoming elections, saying the party (MDC) represented “American interests and Americans are Satanists”, according News Day.

Addressing a campaign rally at a growth point in Mhondoro, Sibanda who is known for intimidation crusades across the country, likened Zanu-PF to the biblical "first fish" from where Jesus’ disciples fished a coin when they ran out of cash.

"Zanu-PF is your first party. [President Robert] Mugabe is your first leader. Jesus said the first fish, not second, third or fourth. President Mugabe is your salvation. He represents the people’s interests, while [Morgan] Tsvangirai ...and all the other parties are puppets of the West," said Sibanda.

"They represent American interests and Americans are Satanists. Look at the back of a $1 bill, the 13 leaves that are there represent the 13 Americans who worshipped Satan. We like the whites when they are in their countries, not in Zimbabwe.

Satanic debate

"When they come here, they should respect our laws."

"As traditional leaders, you should make sure that you don’t have anyone with MDC cards in your areas," he said.

"We should work hard to ensure that we restore the country from the MDC. They don’t believe in our own God, but in Satan. I am shocked there are pastors who are in MDC structures."

But MDC spokesperson Douglas Mwonzora scoffed at Sibanda's remarks saying: "MDC respects and fears God and will not be drawn into a satanic debate which is designed to celebrate evil. Jabulani Sibanda and his Zanu-PF masters are using the Lord's name in vain. Since when has Sibanda feared God after all the suffering that he inflicted on the people of Zimbabwe? He must go to church and seek God’s forgiveness."

Sibanda's speech contradicted the stance taken by other Zanu-PF leaders, Mugabe included, who of late have at various forums advised their supporters to shun violence and the use of hate speech.
