Zanu PF central committee member
and former senator Clemence Makwarimba last week pulled all bootlicking stops
and went on an unhinged praising spree of President Emmerson Mnangagwa,
describing him as God-sent as proven by his ‘remarkable’ response to the Covid-19
Makwarimba said that God knew
that coronavirus will come to Zimbabwe and send President Mnangagwa to fight it
and protect the people.
Makwarimba, who was given a
platform to give a vote of thanks after Vice President Mohadi’s visit to Masvingo,
said Mnangagwa’s government was anointed by God, adding that the coronavirus

Covid-19 had already earned him clean victory.
Makwarimba once served as
Masvingo Rural District Council (RDC) Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
