‘Mutasa court case will fail’ – Zanu PF loyalists

HARARE – Zanu PF loyalists say embattled former Zanu PF Secretary for Administration Didymus Mutasa’s plan of a court case against the ruling party is testimony of failure to accept the reality of his fall from grace.

\n

\n

Mutasa never thought he would live to see the day that the revolution would cast him aside so disgracefully, says Advocate Martin Dinha, a Zanu PF loyalist who is referred to as legal expert.

\n

Advocate Dinha, who is also the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Justice national co-ordinator, says Mutasa’s attempts to go the legal way are futile as he has no case upon which to confront Zanu PF.

\n

“He has no case because all the party processes he wants to challenge were put up when he was there. The courts will just dismiss him,” said Advocate Dinha.

\n

Political analyst Wellington Gadzikwa says having fallen from a self-imposed position of privilege, Mutasa still cannot come to terms with the new reality which has rendered him politically obsolete.

\n

“He still cannot believe what hit him. From power to nothing, from influence to being just an ordinary being, Mutasa does not believe this is real,” Gadzikwa said.

\n

The former Zanu PF Secretary for Administration was reduced to an ordinary cad carrying member at the party’s 2014 national congress.

\n

Mutasa has since taken to the public where he has been criticising the party resulting in his expulsion last week.

\n

He is reportedly mulling court action against his former party, a move that has been described by some in the party as misdirected anger and failure to accept his new fate.
