Zimbabwe: President Sacks Deputy Information Minister Mutodi

European Union Promises Better Relationship With Zimbabwe

Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa has sacked another high profile government official following the removal of former tourism minister Prisca Mupfumira last year.

Naija news learnt Mnangagwa fired the outspoken deputy information minister Energy Mutodi hours after he insulted three “abducted” opposition officials in a tweet.

A statement from the presidency did not give reasons for the immediate “termination of employment” of Mutodi.

A prominent opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) lawmaker and two-party officials were originally arrested for protesting over food shortages experienced during the coronavirus lockdown.

The all-female trio were then abducted from the police station by unidentified men and taken out of the capital where they said they were beaten up and sexually assaulted.

They were later dumped by a roadside where they were found by party colleagues and taken to hospital.

In his tweet Mutodi claimed the three opposition officials “went out for a romantic night to Bindura (a small town) with their lovers,” a couple of miners. He said the women were beaten up “when they demanded foreign currency for their services.”

The incident attracted condemnation from international rights groups and western diplomats.

Heads of mission of the European Union countries and the US based in Harare on Wednesday said they “expect from the government of Zimbabwe a swift, thorough and credible investigation into the abduction and torture” of the opposition members and two others assaulted in the second city of Bulawayo.
