PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe is an “evil and hard hearted” man who “does not feel for others”, the MDC-T has said in response to the aged leader’s recent comments on ailing Morgan Tsvangirai.

Addressing Zanu PF youths at the weekend, Mugabe said Tsvangirai’s illness was a result of his failure to defeat Zanu PF in successive elections since 2000.

Mugabe ordered Tsvangirai to stop challenging him and his party because his MDC-T will never succeed.

He said, “Tsvangirai wanted to take-over this country but he failed. The failure to beat Zanu PF in any election has led to his current illness.”

“Kandai mapfumo pasi hamuna kwamunosvika.(Surrender your swords, you are not going to win any fight). Zanu PF is a mammoth party. Look! Where did we come from?” added Mugabe.

Tsvangirai, who is battling colon cancer, defeated Mugabe in the first round of the 2008 election but did not garner enough seats to be declared the leader of the country. But in 2015, former CIO minister, Didymus Mutasa, declared that in actual fact Tsvangirai had won by a wider imagine and all he needed to do was to march to the State House to seize power.

Reacting to Mugabe’s comments on Tsvangirai, MDC-T Secretary General Douglas Mwonzora told New Zimbabwe that Mugabe’s comments on his boss’s illness were irresponsible for a man of his stature.

“That was very evil of President Mugabe but, we are not surprised that he will have such kind of an attitude. He has always been a hard hearted man who does not feel for others.

“The good news for the people of Zimbabwe is that President Tsvangirai is now well and will be resuming his duties soon,” Mwonzora said.

Mwonzora said Tsvangirai, who is still in South Africa, will be coming home soon.

“I spoke to him. He is very energetic and he is past the worst now,” said Mwonzora.

Asked on how far the MDC-Alliance has gone regarding election preparedness, Mwonzora admitted that Zanu PF is well resourced and his party does not have any resources at all but, MDC-T was working around the clock to prepare for the elections.

Tsvangirai was flown to South Africa a month ago after he fell ill during an MDC- Alliance in Kadoma. He has remained in South Africa since then even though he is out of hospital.

Early this week, Eddie Cross, an MDC-T national executive member, said he thought his boss was so unwell that he couldn’t neither run for office nor lead a country.
