Mugabe spirit 'will remain with us'

2012-03-12 15:04

Cape Town - University of Zimbabwe lecturer and Zanu-PF apologist Vimbai Gukwe Chivaura has declared President Robert Mugabe a "spirit medium" who would never die, News Day reported on Monday.

According to the report, Chivaura said Mugabe was a spirit medium like the country’s historical spirit mediums Mbuya Nehanda and Chaminuka.

"The President is a svikiro [spirit medium] which will never die. He might die physically, but his spirit will remain with us, just like Mbuya Nehanda and Chamunika. We will continue fighting the British and other imperialists using his spirit," said Chivaura.

Chivaura urged Zimbabwe's traditional chiefs to "support this great man because he will always be in us. Many youngsters are now admiring him and they want to be like him".

Mugabe has ruled Zimbabwe since independence in 1980 and his critics say the 88-year-old leader, who is in the twilight of his political career, plans to die in office.

During the Zanu-PF December 2011 annual conference, the party endorsed him as its candidate in the next elections.

    If only he was a spirit! If only we were not looking after millions of his citizens.

  • Sylvia - 2012-03-12 15:20

    Why would anyone aspire to be like Mugabe after the untold damage he's done to the once beautiful and prosperous Zimbabwe and its people?

  • Sidney Gilroy - 2012-03-12 15:20

    British and other Imperialist? God knows an african man always craves an enemy to blame - when all he really needs is a mirror.

      Michael - 2012-03-12 15:37

      Because they invented guns germs and steel and used it to destroy the whole flippen continent.

      Rob - 2012-03-12 17:12

      Michael: Well, you are one African that obviously has a very fertile and diseased imagination. Do you really believe that Europeans invented germs? Then we have guns, well you have a point there, although guns woulld have been pretty pointless without gunpowder, and that was invented by the Vhinese in the 9th century. Even conceding a small point to you about guns, it is generally recognised that the Chinese also are responsible for the earliest models called fire lances. As for steel, Europeans were as pri itive as Africans when that happened in the Middle East, followed by India's invention of crucible steel in the 1st century BCE. Maybe you should do a sanity check to see if what you think you know is anything close to reality!

      Michael - 2012-03-12 18:25

      criticallyhones. ok now this is about who invented what, cool. westerners used gunpowder(from china) and steel( india) and germs (smallpox) to mashup the continent. you havent refuted my comment you have just denied and split ish up sort of spreading the guilt across. are you denying that the west mashed up our continent? comon man , i wont stoop to you level and judge your intellect and imagination,, you have already done that.

      Jellyarse - 2012-09-05 23:37

      Michael - Africa has not contributed one single invention or tool of betterment - If it wasn,t for the other continents, you'd still be walking everywhere and spending your time in tribal warfare (as you still are today) Ignorance of the facts is how the cANCerous leaders like to keep you!

  • Victor - 2012-03-12 15:24

    Ya, looking at how he stuffed up his country, his spirit will haunt the Zimbabwians for years to come. I agree. What an idiot

  • Ayanda - 2012-03-12 15:24

    Lord have mercy!

      Penny - 2012-03-12 15:38

      Looks like their leader's syphilis has affected the minds of his followers as well. So sad ...

  • Willie - 2012-03-12 15:29

    "... imperialists using his spirit..." why don't you use his "living"spirit now and feed your people who are busy begging on the street corners in SA

  • Michele - 2012-03-12 15:29

    I think the lecturer has been partaking of to many spirits .....

  • maryana65 - 2012-03-12 15:33

    I like men who fight . Fight them British to the bitter end so that they must no this is our Africa .

  • Carlton Bana - 2012-03-12 15:33

    The headline is misleading, I thought the devil had died.

      Penny - 2012-03-12 15:38

      Did you just call Bob Mugabe the Devil?

      Carlton Bana - 2012-03-12 15:50

      Yes! Penny... And I was going to call him a 'demon', but devil sounded less offensive.

      Heibrin - 2012-03-12 17:14

      @Carlton: I feel you, I figured something was skew, but you can always hope...

  • PretoiraUnderground - 2012-03-12 15:35

    Hahaha! That's hilarious! By far the funniest thing I have read all day. We can only have a guess as to how Vimbai Gukwe Chivaura got appointed to the university of Zimbabwe (it probably wasn't his IQ). I wonder if they run a course on how best to lick bObs butt for the Zimbabwean people at the university? My only hope on the matter is that tyrant bOb sees justice by way of being kicked out and tried of crimes against humanity before that A$$hole eventually kicks the bucket.

  • africanhero - 2012-03-12 15:38

    Not his spirit, but his ideologies will one day unite and save Africa when all the coward and selfish leaders are weakned.

      Marius - 2012-03-12 15:54

      ....and your spirit is floating around over the ashes of what remains of Africa. IDIOT!

      johan.vanhoff - 2012-03-12 17:09

      DUMB C@NT.

      Heibrin - 2012-03-12 17:16

      Unfortunately more like 'unite and burn Africa'. I can't disagree about the leaders though.

      Jellyarse - 2012-09-05 23:39

      Ignorant tw@

      Jellyarse - 2012-09-05 23:41 Great things he's doing foe the future of Zimbabwe - or maybe you think that's the way Africans should remain - dumb and pigsh*t ignorant?

  • christian.helberg - 2012-03-12 15:38

    LOL, what a load of feces

  • Vegi - 2012-03-12 15:45

    There is no doubt

  • wesleywt - 2012-03-12 15:45

    A stupid person saying a stupid thing.... News? I think not.

  • Samuel - 2012-03-12 15:54

    LoL, oh but of course he is!

  • betsy.compaan - 2012-03-12 15:56

    Obviously they are preparing their country for Mugabe's death, by convincing all his vulnarable followers that he is a spirit medium they will be able to hold on to power even after their death claiming that their party is "guided" by their soon dead president. That’s what the spirits are telling me Mr. President.

  • David - 2012-03-12 15:59

    " Die in office...." I would prefer it if he died in extreme agony.

  • stoute.babuseng - 2012-03-12 16:00

    Man this headline is missing leading for a second i thought the old bastard is dead how nice that would have been

  • stoute.babuseng - 2012-03-12 16:08

    Man this headline is missing leading for a second i thought the old bastard is dead how nice that would have been

  • James - 2012-03-12 16:08

    Cornell U study by Prof. Dunning; Some people are too stupid to realise that they are stupid. Add to this DNA problems and Chivaura suffers adouble whammy.

  • jurgen.eksteen - 2012-03-12 16:10

    It's because of your 'spirit mediums' that your country is in the state it is.

  • Gavin - 2012-03-12 16:23

    I can imagine parents scaring their children in years to come - if you don't hide your pocket money, rob mugabe will come and rob you. I hope he burns in hell.

  • Mark - 2012-03-12 16:37

    I have some news for you boet - he is going to die, as surely as the sun goes down in the evening. The only real question to be asked is whether Zim will still exist by that time as his people all seem to be living in SA, you have no currency, no value and are of no real use to anybody. See what the spirits have to say about that.......

  • Den - 2012-03-12 16:39

    only that will remain is the theiving spirit of his leadership

  • Nigel - 2012-03-12 16:44

    Piss off idiot !!!

  • Gary - 2012-03-12 16:48

    Maybe they can feature his spirit on "most Haunted" lol

  • Ashuvha - 2012-03-12 16:48

    President Mugabe is my hero too and should be to every self respecting African.

      Heibrin - 2012-03-12 17:26

      Aahh.. would you say that to the black Zimbabweans killed during the 1983 Matabeleland genocide? How conveniently you forget that he is responsible for the torture and killing of thousands of his own countrymen.

  • VanWyk - 2012-03-12 16:51

    So Mugabe is now declared a spirit medium by some poor deluded fool? In that case, I declare David Cameron as a godlike being who can possess any white person at will, and he can vaporize anyone by simply thinking about them. I also declare that he shoots lasers from his eyes and can summon meteors to crush those who dare oppose him. Credible information, folks!

      Heibrin - 2012-03-12 17:18

      We all wish, I think. Just imagine.... that's Bob gone, and Malema...

  • Wilbert - 2012-03-12 17:06

    Zimbabwe has more than its fair share of University Lecturers whose public utterances, particularly on political issues, has left many wondering whether their really deserve their intellectual status. Vimbai Chivaura is just one more mentally retarded University Lecturers; Professors Arthur Mutambara, Wellish Ncube, Jonathan Moyo and John Makumbe are but a few of the others!

  • craig.thom1 - 2012-03-12 17:19

    Would be great if he could hurry up now, with the becoming "spirit part"

  • Geoff - 2012-03-12 17:56

    Mr Chivaura, it sounds like you are on spirits yourself. Could it be "Mainstay?".....or maybe just "Brainslay"

  • Evan - 2012-03-12 19:32

    Great theory, the real question remains, HOW SOON CAN WE TEST YOUR THEORY?

  • Chappies ZA - 2012-03-13 20:04

    Bob gaan gaan kole gooi! Besig om die vroot vuur te stook !!!

  • susan.lennox.98 - 2012-08-23 09:21

    I wouls like to point out to one of the guys on this forum.....when "advanced" countries left their shores, which were populated with towns , roads, streets etc, which had horses pulling carts and wagons, gas lighting etc... in ships they built...and came to the shores of the vast backward uncivilised black continent...they realised its potential...especially when they saw the unclothed wild bunch that "greeted" them. We have all been on this earth for the same length of time....AFRICA keeps telling us we are all stemmed from what happened to you guys who were"left behind" while the rest of us forged on and discovered all the mod cons we have today???

    Damn! The article title got my hopes up that this ultimate scumbag has gone to Hell.... Or any of the "Happy" places that the different religions have, for the Stalins and Hitlers that this planet has spawned He clings to life like a leech. He knows where he is going... That's why he clings to life.
