FORMER state security minister Didymus Mutasa was Wednesday humiliated by opposition MDC-T supporters who attended the electoral reform protest in Harare.
Mutasa was also part of the ruling Zanu PF party’s top four as administration secretary before he was expelled for plotting the ouster of President Robert Mugabe.
He has since joined the opposition ranks with his already fractured ZimPF party and took part in the protest as one of the National Electoral Reform Agenda (NERA) principals.
NERA brings together several political parties pushing for reforms ahead of next year’s elections.
The former Mugabe loyalist was barracked when event moderator, Joelson Mugari, invited him to give his party’s solidarity statement.
“We know your history and we do not want you here. You killed a lot of our friends and relatives and that is your legacy and you are a Zanu PF spy,” some of the MDC-T supporters who were dominating the event shouted.
Mutasa evidently felt the venom as he stammered through his short speech amid more jeers from the crowd.
“We have been working against the Mugabe government because of its anti-people policies and today we are endorsing Morgan Tsvangirai to lead the coalition of opposition parties which we are part of,” he said.
The ageing former Zanu PF heavy is blamed for State and ruling party brutality against opposition supporters in the country.
Among many other cases, the MDC-T blames him for the death of Headlands toddler and son to party supporter, Christpower Maisiri, who died in an arson attack in 2013.
