Ephraim Tapa begs ZimEye to remove Tsvangirai article thumbnail

London(ZimEye)Disgraced ex-MDC Chairman, Ephraim Tapa has repeatedly begged the ZimEye to remove an article in which he insulted Zimbabwe’s Prime minister, Morgan Tsvangirai.

 

For the past 4 weeks, Ephraim Tapa has made repeated calls to the ZimEye requesting the publication to remove his anti-Tsvangirai article in which he labelled Tsvangirai ‘an ill-witted politician who has no confidence in himself’. Tapa has categorically denied having in any way insulted Zimbabwe’s Prime Minister. He said:

 

‘My Christian values do not allow me to say such things. But what I do agree to have done is to contest on ideologies. So in that case if the article was written like that, then it is offending even to me. As if threatening ZimEye with legal action, Tapa then ordered our reporter to ‘remove the article’

 

 When asked by our reporter,

‘Are you now suggesting that we fabricated this story?’ Tapa replied:

 

‘That conversation yatakaita ka iyo,which we had…was a private conversation. OK. And I did not give anyone authority to publish it.’ After this, the ROHR leader then quiety admitted insulting Mrogan Tsvangirai.

 

However, immediately after this, Tapa went on to debate his way and ‘stretching his tongue’ further to call our reporter his ‘best friend’ Our reporter and Tapa are strangers, having had only two interviews over a one month-space period in October last year.

 

At the end of the convesation, the former MDC chairman staged another persuasive twist when he began to describe his relationship with ZimEye as that between husband and wife, saying there are certain things that are ‘spoken in the house which should not be made known to the rest of the world.’

 

On Saturday, Tapa also called for a demonstration at Zimbabwe House in London, claiming to protest against the Zimbabwean government after Morgan Tsvangirai’s accident. The MDC has distanced itself from this protest saying that Mr Tapa is acting on his own accord. 

 

In August 2007, Ephraim Tapa was sacked from leadership for incompetence, when the new Speaker of parliament Lovemore Moyo came from Harare and disbanded his committee. Since then, Tapa formed a protest organisation by the name of Restoration Of Human Rights (ROHR) He also launched an online strategy attempting to destroy Tsvangirai’s image while at the same time bringing his own image back on the political screens (ZimEye, Zimbabwe)

    Evidently, Tapa is a pure PHONY! He’s going nowhere. He should stop this politicking and sort his personality out before coming back…

    Unbelievable, unbelievable, vakomana vanofawo ava, Late Vitalis Musungwa Gava Zvinavashe

    Outspoken retired army general Vitalis Musungwa Gava Zvinavashe who recently accused President Robert Mugabe’s government and ZANU PF for lying about the status of the country’s political and economic developments, has died.
    Zvinavashe was 68. Zvinavashe who was one of the top crop of nationalist freedom fighters when he joined his colleagues in Zambia in 1967 died on Tuesday morning at Manyame Airbase in Harare after a long illness.
    The late former army chief, who once declared in 2002 that the armed forcers will not salute anyone without liberation war credentials in apparent reference to now Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, had just returned from Cuba where he had gone to seek medical assistance for liver cancer

    Yes, I seem to recall there was some very dodgy wrangling and jostling by Tapa at the london forums and the vigil./

    Ohh Mai Tsvangirai`s pillow, Zvinavashe.
    It shows kuti pafa vakuru, Amai fambai Zvakanaka muri Vahombe. Ndatenda zvangu.

    You have just missed the Hague but watch – out , “Shefu” it’s the Lord’s time to judge you now. No one lives for ever. Judgment day comes when you least expect it.
    The people of Zimbabwe will never forget or forgive you for the suffering and deaths under your command

  6. The Serpent on Tue, 10th Mar 2009 1:21 pm 

    Tapa beware in Politics. Look, hear, open your ears not your ass, you idiot.

    Hebert Ushewokunze warned Mugabe, “Now that you are killing and burying everyone, who shall be left to bury you when you die?” Others who died in road accidents included Zanu PF politicians Moven Mahachi, Border Gezi, Witness Rukarwa, William Ndangana, Elliot Manyika, Ntandazo Ngwenya and Zororo Duri. Many suspected they had been done away with because of bitter intra-party feuding.

    Bitter intra-party feuding, Tapa, you will depart soon to hell.

    I am just caughting one anylist onthe issue of that accident, SERPENT WHAT DO YU TINK OF THIS? WHAT SAY YU, YOUR COMMENTS PLIZ

    (It is true that the accident was planned. The driver was hired. Initially he refused but was told he will be eliminated. He had no option but to execute the plan. He was told to express shock at the news and pretend that he wants to commit suicide etc etc. The USAID trucks are being used to create the impression that Morgan’s master are planning to kill him for oining hands with Mugabe. At face value, it apperas an ordinary accident where only one very strong vehicle is extensively damaged. Time will tell. It was 100% organised by the CIO. Happyson bonyongwe was at the Avenues Clinic with Mugabe to brief him of the nfailed attempt before visiting the “patient” Tsvangirai. within a v month most of the hidden details will surface. There are chances that the driver will be forced to commit suicide so that he will not reveal the identities of the CIO operatives he was working with. This onformation was leaked by one of the top CIO agents not happy with the plan to harass Morgan. Actually there are about 4 USAID drivers who have been put under pressure.)

    As for Zvinavashe this igood for him, he asked for it.

  10. Bruce Derere on Tue, 10th Mar 2009 8:43 pm 

    Come on. Let’s not be so cruel. WHy revenge Evil for Evil?

    Zvinavashe repented of his sins. Don’t yuo remember last year? You neveknow he could be in heaven today

  11. The Serpent on Tue, 10th Mar 2009 11:13 pm 

    Zvinavashe will never enter heaven but will forever and ever live in hell Amen.

    whats you your source for all that samukeliso

  14. The Jackal on Wed, 11th Mar 2009 2:37 pm 

    Tapa listen, i want you write a letter of apology to our Prime Minister. Until you have done that i promise you we i will descend on you like hail storm. I want you to copy that letter to this website.This is the best you can do to you and your family.

  15. Rasmoses on Wed, 11th Mar 2009 2:59 pm 

    Well all decenting voices can be hardly heard but our views can not be taken for granted. Mr E Tapa we need people who are can lead by examples stop trying to brianwash the cause of justice and democracy process witnessed by many as only alternative option available so far . This is for the best intrest for Zimbabwe to pull out of two decades of wasted years, economically and politicaly which can be witnessed even by unborn kids on this earth. People have suffered , no question on that but you need to contribute positively to return our country to its international position. Having your good time and bad times with the UK MDC leadership or the masses who voted you out should not lead you into evil but l ope should deliver you from it. Till you stand as a leader we will not live you alone.

  16. The Serpent on Wed, 11th Mar 2009 3:16 pm 

    Tapa Unongotaura semunhu angoti pfocho kubva musango kunomama, dont go on the media and waffle later you cry to be exonerated from what you say.

    There is no friend in journalism you idiot. This reporter did his best to expose your other side of Political thinking. Also Shepherd Juda highlited us on your dealings behind the suffering masses of Zimbabwe which is BAD.

    We were surprised that you were a sellout and also the links with the Mutyambizis who dominate the top CIO hierarchy explains a lot. You definately jeopadised MDC activists` lives back home, a far worse serpent Tapa.

    Foul Play Is Suspected, Why USAID?

    Gono and Zanu PF , the cold calculating
    villains of organized crime who kill and corrupt for cash. Love of money is the root of all evil.

    Air Force Commander Perence Shiri survived assassination attempt. Military intelligence investigators, the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) and police are all said to be involved in the investigation to track down the attackers and establish a motive.

    Just a few days after, Frank Muchirahondo, an employee of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) was captured at the Forbes border post in Mutare on January 22nd whilst trying to flee the country.

    A few days later, We heard devastating news that Morgan Tsvangirai’s wife, Susan, died from her injuries sustained in a car accident on a Friday afternoon.

    Chinoona Chimwanda, (35) was the driver of the Nissan UD box truck involved
    in the accident. The vehicle belongs to USAID. US embassy officials
    confirmed that the lorry belonged to a partner organisation of USAID, the US
    government aid agency.

    In Masvingo, March 11 2009 – The Minister of Defence and a member of the
    Zanu PF politburo Emmerson Mnangagwa, has accused America and Britain of
    trying to eliminate Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai.

    Addressing a meeting in Masvingo, Mnangagwa is said to have told a
    group of Zanu PF supporters while explaining the new inclusive government at the weekend, that Tsvangirai’s accident had been an attempt to take his life by Americans and the British.

    Mnangagwa said the West was not pleased
    with Tsvangirai’s decision to join the unity government and had sent the
    USAID truck driver, who was involved in an accident which killed
    Tsvangirai’s wife, Susan on Friday, to eliminate him.

    Mnangagwa told the meeting that the West wanted to kill Tsvangirai and not his wife and that they might attempt to kill him again.

    This is a warning to Sabi who denied Zanu PF plot to eliminate him.

    OHHHHH HOW I LIKE THIS THANK YOU MAZIMBABWE THANK YOU.

    Chen on Wed, 11th Mar 2009 2:42 pm

    My sixth sense tells me that this accident was well planned but the last man in action(the driver) had misgivings about the assignment and that is why the main target was missed.Consider these observations:
    1. A USAID vehicle was chosen so as not to think that it was ZANU PF. How would ZANU get hold of an American car? (But we know that driver is Zimbabwean and can be forced, threatened etc)
    2. Have you seen the CIO boss rushing to a ZANU PF accident victim before?
    3. What about the entire politburo making a bee line to Avenues clinic (they wanted to see the extent of damage in order to either celebrate or go back to the drawing board)
    4. When Mugabe gets what he wants he always preaches light when infact orders darkness. Go back to his inauguration speech in June last year against the horror movie he created in the run-off.
    5. Since when has ZANU PF started allowing its TV and radio stations air condolences to death of ‘zvimbwasungata’? Imagine someone being allowed to phone and wail about death of the PM’s wife. The PM happens to be enemy No.1 of the TV and Radio stations owner!!!

    The above are just a few of the observations that point to the fact that this accident was man-made and allowed to proceed by the devil. Of course God will level the playing field kana nguva yakwana.

    Tichaona kwazvinosvika. Sungai dzisimbe.

    AHHHH THI IS VERY NICE GUYS KEEP UP THE GOOD SPIRIT, LET THE TRUTH COME OUT, GIVE PRAISE WHERE IT IS DESERVED.

    chematsenganzungu on Thu, 12th Mar 2009 2:36 pm

    Yes the truth is unfolding bit by bit………………

    The United States Government has extended its deepest condolences to the Prime Minister and his family, and the people of Zimbabwe, over the tragic loss of Susan Nyaradzo Tsvangirai. We understand the car crash that caused Mrs. Tsvangirai’s death is currently the subject of an investigation.

    The truck that was involved in the accident with the Prime Minister’s vehicle on Friday, March 6th does not belong to the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). It was purchased with USAID funds by a contractor and belonged to the contractor. The contractor was delivering essential HIV and AIDS drugs and medical supplies to health clinics under an effort co-financed by USAID and the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DfID). The driver of the truck, a Zimbabwean national, was an employee of the contractor, not a USAID employee.
    The U.S. government remains committed to helping the people of Zimbabwe as it has done for decades. The United States provided over $260 million for emergency programs since October 2007, providing food, health care, safe water, and HIV/AIDS prevention, care and treatment. Most recently, the United States has supported major activities to control and treat cholera and malaria.

    LET THE TRUTH BE SAID AND WE SHAME THE DEVIL.

    wos on Thu, 12th Mar 2009 2:31 pm

    In fact it is Mnangagwa who hired the hitman. A two way radio was used. If you look to the left of the so called blackspot, there is hill, on the hill were some CIO’s with binoculars and a two way radio, communicating with the driver of the truck used to transport relief supplies by USAID. Two miles behind the Prime Minister’s convoy were two CIO cars and in one of the cars a CIO was on the cell phone talking to one of the CIO’s on the hill updating them on the location of the PM’s convoy. The CIO’s on the hill, when they had view of both the “hit truck” and the PM’s convoy indicated to the “hit truck” at exactly what time to strike. See, it was simple for them, except it was the wrong victim.

    Tapa, one thing you should know is Morgan the now PM of Zim has got balls and as for you I have got no comment.

  24. Mudhara mike on Sun, 15th Mar 2009 6:47 pm 

    Tapa is nothing but a rogue politician. He is a disgraced corrupt former MDC UK Chairman. I wish tour reporter could have gone further and exposed him for his outright robbery and thieving. This writer can offer you more info. His ROHR org is stealing money from desperate and suffering ZIMBOS in the UK and other places promising them that he will help them regularise their stay in the different countries. They are being made to pay at least £120.00 for a letter to take to the Home office. If you check on the register of charity and non-govt orgs, ROHR is not even registered. How then does he criticise Mugabe as illegitimate when he is equally bad if not worse? There are only 2 people at the helm of ROHR UK. The org has no physical address. Thank you for good journalism but you could do more to expose these Shylocks. Taneta nemapere anofamba akapfeka mvere dzehwayi. Would you be able to investigate his claim that he was abducted and tortured by ZANU PF thugs at Mushumbi hills in Murehwa where several opposition supporters were murdered. That was before he escaped to the UK. Munhu uyu anonyebera vanhu mhani. His party yaari kuda kufoma is doomed before its even started. Pamberi neinvestigave journalism It is the 4th arm of democracy.

    IF YOU WANA KNOW MORE ABOUT THIS ROGUE MORON OF A POLITICIAN, ASK CESA, MARONDERA WHERE HE LAST WORKED. THERE HE WAS A DOUBLE STANDARD MERCHANT, IN POWER IN CESA, YET *****ING THE CIVIL SERVANTS AS AN EO IN GVT.

    HE IS A POWER HUNGRY ORATOR. HE WOMANISES FOR FUN. TO SAY HE IS A MAN OF GOD SHOWS HIS HEIGHT OF HYPOCRISY.

    QUITE HOW MDC ALLOWED THIS MAN TO RISE ALL THE WAY TO UK CHAIRMAN IS BEYOND ME. I SUPPOSE HIS ORATORIAL SKILLS(A LITTLE MUGABE) MAKES IT EASY FOR HIM.

    TAPA CANT DO IT FOR ZIMBABWE – ITS NOT ABOUT TALKING. TAPA FAILED TO RUN HIS SMALL OFFICE AT WORK, HOW HE WOULD MANAGE A COUNTRY IS BEYOND IMAGINATION.

    IAM NOT SURPRISED HE IS SELLING HOME OFFICE ASSISTANCE LETTERS. THAT SAYS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE MAN.
