Chinamasa accuses Tsvangirai of being anti-Zimbabwean

Morgan Tsvangirai and his opposition MDC is anti-Zimbabwean, the country's Justice Minister Patrick Chinamasa said on Friday, reports Sapa.

Speaking in Pretoria, he said a victory for Tsvangirai in the June 27 run-off election would be “destabilising”.

“It plunges the country into a very serious situation … it would be a destabilising event for Zimbabwe,” he said.

He blamed the opposition for wanting to turn around gains made since independence and said this would be disastrous for the country.

Chinamasa said Zanu-PF was however convinced that President Robert Mugabe would win the run-off election, “overwhelmingly”.

“The election was almost stolen from us because of the complacency and over confidence of 600 000 of our people who did not come out to vote,” he said, adding that they were encouraging these people to come and vote in the run-off.

Chinamasa blamed a third force for the political violence in Zimbabwe, saying it was clear that the British and American government were encouraging the violence.
