News:Gutu, Mafume And Mawarire Comment On Mugabe's Trip To Dubai

<vote /> Opposition parties have commented on Mugabe's visit to Dubai where NewsDay sources revealed that he picked his family en route to Singapore where he has received medical attention over the years.

MDC-T spokesperson, Obert Gutu said Mugabe’s trip to Dubai was a serious source of financial leakages for a Treasury that was already broke.

Gutu said that,

In as much as we sympathise with Mugabe over his health problems, we urge him to search his soul and conscience, so that he sees that in his current physical shape and going towards 93, it is not good to cling onto power. He should go and rest and allow the nation to move forward in capable hands.

People’s Democratic Party spokesperson, Jacob Mafume said the Dubai trip showed that Mugabe had lost touch with reality and had misplaced priorities.

He said,

The President is no longer in touch with the priorities of the nation. We need a President, who is in good health, and not one who needs to be mended now and again. We, as a nation, should hang our heads in shame at this display by the one who is supposed to be our chief diplomat.

But Zimbabwe People First (ZimPF) spokesperson, Jealous Mawarire said the nation should not be worried about Mugabe’s trip to Dubai because he was now of little value to the nation.

Mawarire said,

It doesn’t mean anything that Mugabe cut short an important State visit not to attend anything pressing here at home or anything pressing in Dubai, because even when he is here at home, he would be sleeping.

Mugabe's spokesperson George Charamba refused to give NewsDay the reason behind Mugabe's visit. Read more here.
