‘I am the Head of State and Government and the Commander in Chief of the Defence Forces’ – Mugabe thumbnail

Harare(ZimEye)- Zimbabwe-President Mugabe has instructed the Herald and the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation to refer him as the Head of State, Government and Commander in Chief of the Defence forces whenever a report is made.

Mugabe’s spokesman George Charamba wrote to the two state media instructing them to refer Mugabe with the titles following continued referral of Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai as the head of Government.

According to the political agreement, Tsvangirai is supposed to be the head of Government as he oversees Government business and policies.

After the formation of the new Government, Tsvangirai was referred to as the head of Government.

Mugabe is understood to have been angered after the state media reported that Tsvangirai met his counterpart Gordon Brown during his tour of Europe.

Brown is the Prime Minister of Britain and he is the head of state and Government.

“The feeling at Mugabe’s office was that Tsvangirai was treated as the head of state when he visited the US and Europe last month. In Germany he was given the honour of inspecting a Guard of Honour. This did not go down well with Mugabe and he made it clear that it must be cleared who is in charge. That is why every time he is now referred as the Head of State and Government and the Commander in Chief,” a source at ZBC said.

The source said Charamba has instructed the state broadcaster “to send the message clear to the people.”

Charamba was quoted in the state media saying it must be noted that Tsvangirai was “just a senior minister.”

It has never been clear on what powers Mugabe and Tsvangirai will both wield in the Government.

On most cases, the two have said conflicting statements indicating confusing the country on who had the final say on may issues. At one time Mugabe was quoted saying he would introduce the Zimbabwe dollar but Tsvangirai later said this was impossible leaving the country confused on what was the final position.

    It shows how confused people at the top are. Who is in charge Mugabe or Charamba and is it true Mugabe is worried about these trivialities or its these idiots around him. Oh by the way they forgot to add Supreme Leader and First Secretary

Kasi Kulu vanenge vakutwanya coz he once commented kuti they are tripplets with the two MDC’s, saka handizive hangu kuti pamatripplets pane mukuru here, kana aripo handiti zvinonzi anopedzisira kubuda ndiye mukuru, so in this case it will be the PM coz he was the last born.
