“Isu tinozvida izvi. Pamberi nechimurenga (We love this. Forward with the struggle).”
Almost all parastatals, even loss-making ones, among them Zimpost, CMED, ZESA Holdings, Net One, ZUPCO, Hwange Colliery Company, ZINWA, ZIMDEF, POSB, NSSA,issued full colour adverts celebrating Mujuru’s “incredible feat” as “the first woman Vice President.”

The messages were laced with nauseating bootlicking extolling the virtues of a vice president who has recently been named in a corruption scandal at Ziscosteel.
