'Chiwenga bought Kasukuwere's wedding ring'

'Chiwenga bought Kasukuwere's wedding ring'
Published: 16 July 2019 (291 Views)
Ailing former Zimbabwe Defense Forces strongman Constantino Chiwenga bought a ring for exiled former ZANU PF Commissar Savior Kasukuwere during his wedding.

Hagiographer Douglas Rogers reveals in his book Two weeks in November that Chiwenga was Kaukuwere's political mentor and godfather. He narrates that due to the father-figure influence that Chiwenga had on Kasukuwere the house of the exiled former PC was designed by the same people who did Chiwenga's.

Read the narrative below:

The biggest mansion in the Borrowdale Brooke, overlooking the entire community from a high rocky promontory, is the private residence of General Constantino Chiwenga.

A neighbouring mansion on a steep hillside had no such qualms: the modern, cream-coloured, triple-storey palace of Saviour Kasukuwere, the ZANU-PF Political Commissar. With its Gatsby-like gables and reinforced walls and floor-to-ceiling bulletproof windows, it looked like something out of Malibu.

Ironically, as things were later to turn out, it was designed by the same architect as Chiwenga's home in the Brooke, for Chiwenga had been a mentor and father figure to Saviour. Indeed, ED had been too.

Saviour was a daring young intelligence agent in the late 80s and 90s during and after the period that ED, as Minister of State Security, oversaw the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO), the country's secret police.

Saviour gained renown for a hair-raising 1991 operation when, aged 21, he helicoptered into the remote mountain hideaway of Mozambique's RENAMO resistance rebels disguised as a journalist, locating the camp's coordinates. ED used to walk to Saviour's house for tea; Saviour would visit Chiwenga at the Titanic to watch Wimbledon tennis and Premiership soccer games.

Chiwenga bought Saviour his wedding band as a token of their friendship; Saviour did the same for the General. Now they were at war.
