Norton Legislator Temba Mliswa has come out guns blazing attacking Tendai Mtawarira after the latter revealed why he left Zimbabwe for South Africa and decided to change citizenship.
Tendai Mtawarira revealed that he left Zimbabwe because of the land reform program which had become violent and attracted international interference.
1/ @Beast_TM I like you, you’re my man, you’ve done well in the sporting arena, however, when you don’t stand up & tell the truth about land reform, your utterances become a problem. Why don’t you make mention of the land that was really and violently grabbed from your ancestors?
2/ They were relocated to mosquito and tsetse fly ridden, barren areas. Land reform was a measure to address the economic imbalance that existed in the country. You were privileged enough to attend Peterhouse as a result of the founding principles of this country and independence
3/It’s folly to deride your country for the expedience of international media, never abandon your roots. You’re a role model to many Zimbabweans & as such, you’ve got to do right. This was a bad move and it would be important for you to find a way of correcting it. @maguranyanga
4/You’re someone who, too, would like to benefit from Zim resources just as any other Zimbabwean is entitled. For someone who’s done so well, we were looking forward to a rugby development programme by you, here back home. We need people like you to be ambassadors for our country
