Mnangagwa lied about his arrest by whites?
Published: 22 April 2019 (61 Views)
President Emmerson Mnangagwa allegedly misled the nation when he created a narrative that he was arrested by the white minority regime for derailing a goods train and sentenced to death but was spared the gallows because he was below the age of 21.

National Patriotic Front Spokesperson Jealousy Mawarire alleges that, "He (Mnangagwa)  was arrested when he was an adult (22 years). Legal age of majority was 21 in1965 when he was arrested for allegedly derailing a goods train in Fort Victoria (Masvingo), not Melsetter where the Crocodile Gang operated from between 1 and 22 July 1964."

President Mnangagwa was born in 1942 and would have been 22/23 years if he was arrested in 1965.

Mawarire further emphasised his assertion that Mnangagwa was not part of the Crocodile Gang as has always been the narrative that earned him the nickname Crocodile.

"The derailing of a goods train doesn't make ED a member of the Crocodile Gang. Even Solomon Gwitira and Amos Rwodzi, two elders who helped the gang attack Nyanyadzi police station, have never claimed to be members of  the Gang.  The Gang had 5 members, Ndangana, Mlambo, Mazwani, Kademaunga and Dhlamini.

One Roman Catholic priest Father Emmanuel Ribeiro in 2017 gave a narrative that shows that the whites never confirmed Mnangagwa's age when the arrested him.

Speaking in 2017 during a meeting of the Inter-Ministerial Task-force on Enshrinement formed to develop a shrine known as Trabablas Trail at the Masvingo Railway station in remembrance of President Emmerson Mnangagwa's liberation history Riberio said,"I went to his (Mnangagwa) holding at Harare Central Prison and asked him whether he had written a letter to President Clifford Dupont  and he said to me why should I waste my time writing the letter, what will it change.

"I went to his cell again when things had really gotten tough in the country and looked at him and said to myself, but this is just a boy. I don't want to say much about the other things, but I went to the doctor at the prison Dr Lavaccoco and told him that he (Mnangagwa) was just a boy and he went and looked at him. After looking at him and he was convinced that he was indeed just a boy he (Dr Lavaccoco) wrote his report that was attached to the other papers that were sent to president Dupont. I was surprised to see him after two weeks walking freely inside the prison complex having been removed from death row his sentence commuted to some years in jail."
