PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe has taken a jibe at opposition parties, particulary the MDC-T and Zimbabwe People First (ZimPF), saying they were wasting their time plotting to unseat him in the 2018 elections.

Addressing thousands of Zanu PF supporters bussed in for a campaign rally at Chamisa Primary School in Gutu on Friday, Mugabe described his foes as ideologically bankrupt and with no capacity to defeat him at the ballot box.
“We have ideology as Zanu PF, something that opposition parties do not have, whether it’s MDC-T, MDC-N or MDC-Z, I do not know or whether its Makoni’s Mavambo/Dawn/Kusile, or that small party, which calls itself People First, what is People First?” he asked rhetorically.
Mugabe said come 2018 polls, other contenders to the country’s top post will be shocked.
“The likes of (ZimPF leader Joice) Mujuru are boasting saying we have many supporters, and we said its okay, we will see come 2018. Let the likes of (Dzikamai) Mavhaire and (Kudakwashe) Bhasikiti boast, while at their People First party with Mai Mujuru there.
“Those who cross the floor, we say go, you were bringing disharmony, leave us in peace in Zanu PF. The likes of (MDC-T leader Morgan) Tsvangirai are are having pot bellies and are relaxed because of Zanu PF and you are now hoarding women and we leave you with your traits. We only ask; ‘How has Zanu PF erred? Show us then how you want to run the country’? They want to return the farms to the whites,” Mugabe charged.
He thanked party supporters in Gutu for not defecting to Mujuru’s party. Mujuru was fired last year along with several senior party officials for allegedly trying to unconstitutionally unseat Mugabe and using voodoo, charges she vehemently denies. – NewsDay
