Eddie Cross speaks out against Mnangagwa's 'humiliation,' says he is one of the least corrupt ministers

Eddie Cross the MDC member of parliament for Bulawayo South has praised Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa and decried the way he has been treated of late by his factional rivals within Zanu-PF as well as by President Robert Mugabe. Cross also described Mnangagwa as one of the least corrupt Zanu-PF Ministers who had dedicated his life to protecting President Mugabe and Zanu-PF. Cross was comparing Mnangagwa’s woes to Tsvangirai’s health situation saying that “Life can be a bastard at times.”

Writting on his personal blog over the weekend, Cross said:

And if you think that is a tough situation – just think about Emmerson Mnangagwa who in the past two weeks has just recovered from being poisoned at a Zanu PF Rally, been lambasted publicly on several occasions by the so called “First Lady” and now humiliated in public by the President – someone whom he has loyally supported all his life.

So often in the past 50 years, Emmerson Mnangagwa has taken the heat for Mr. Mugabe, it was the Vice President as Chairman of the Joint Operations Command who gave Zanu PF their two thirds majority in 2013 and returned Mr. Mugabe to State House for another 5-year term. An effective, even brilliant organizer he has held the State captive for Zanu PF. One of the very few Zanu PF Ministers whose hands are relatively clean of corruption he has survived in the Shark Tank – but now is under sustained and coordinated attack.

Many will argue that those who live by the sword will die in the same way, but still it’s a tough call for a man whose whole life has been dedicated to his Party and the State President, even though he knows full well, that the President, more than any other person, is at the very center of our problems and must go or the country runs the risk of either armed conflict, a coup or simply becoming a failed State.
