It is sickening what Thabo Mbeki said, callers tell Eusebius

18 September 2019 10:55 AM
Callers on the open line critique the former president's tribute to Robert Mugabe and say he rewrote history.

I never met one single Zimbabwean who said I want Mugabe deposed. The ones who spoke to us the MDC didn't say depose Mugabe, they said help us to find one another.

Thabo Mbeki, Former SA president

Former president Thabo Mbeki has been criticised by Zimbabweans on the Eusebius McKaiser show for what they say is rewriting history.

During a keynote address at the KwaZulu-Natal African National Congress (ANC)'s memorial service of the late former Zimbabwean leader, Mbeki said he never met a Zimbwbean who wanted to remove Mugabe from office.

He also said Mugabe was his comrade and a leader who would never leave the struggle for liberation.

The issue of our comrade Thabo Mbeki is quite disgusting. Zimbabweans suffered a lot during the tenure of Mugabe.

Clifford, Caller

It is sickening what Mbeki said. I had little respect for him and now it is gone for good.

Walter, Caller

Nompilo went into detail to explain how she and her friends suffered in Zimbabwe.

The speech that former president Thabo Mbeki made really upset me. I thought for once in history someone from the ANC and Umkhonto weSizwe would tell the truth. Mugabe loathed ANC. What upsets me is that at this point in history people like Thabo Mbeki can't even stand up and tell the truth. Mugabe was a monster. Zimbabwe never supported the revolution of the ANC.
