ZANU PF Director of Information Tafadzwa Mugwadi slammed United Kingdom (UK) MPs after calls for Emmerson Mnangagwa’s regime to uphold the rule of law and stop political persecution.
In the House of Lords Tuesday, the UK MPs expressed concern over the declining political situation in Zimbabwe, and the continued incarceration of MDC Alliance youth activist, Makomborero Haruzivishe and Hopewell Chin’ono.
The UK legislators said the human rights violations were seriously affecting Zimbabwe’s international re-engagement process, including rejoining the Commonwealth, a grouping of mostly former British colonies.
However, Mugwadi, who has in the past had altercations with several senior foreign government officials and journalists including those from neighbouring South Africa and the US, angrily rubbished the contributions made by the UK MPs.
However, in response, Mugwadi described the UK MPs as “Lilliputians”.
The Lilliputians are viewed as a society of people around six inches in average height, but with all the arrogance and sense of self-importance associated with full-sized men.
“We defeated regime change long ago during war-monger Tony Blair’s time. It is scandalous for these Lilliputians to make noise about a nation whose name they can hardly pronounce,” Mugwadi said.
“The UK Embassy and UK Ambassador to Zimbabwe Melanie Robinson must be the most embarrassed by such classical stupidity. Sit down pink pigs!” added Mugwadi.
