MAGIC is the continuation of politics by other means. This, at least, has been the case in the world since the political advent. The strategies pursued by the elite to obtain lucrative positions of authority are thus seen to be motivated by sorcery from political rivals and spiritual guidance from spiritual guides. Time has shown how sorcery plays an integral part in the new politics of democratization in Zimbabwe.
Political sorcery thrives, in a complex moral economy that mixes local ideas of sociality, political practices of patrimonialism, and global discourses of democracy. Sorcery and corruption are part of the same political imagination, because both speak ambivalently to the problems of power in times of change. Rather than being anathema to democracy, as the new global discourse on transparency would have it, the occult politics of corruption and sorcery are among the means through which a contested form of democracy is conceptualized and implemented in Zimbabwe and afar.
The politicians use black-magic in a belief to influence the mass consciousness for their political mileage. The sorcerers use this evil intention to earn tons of money to sponsor their evil deeds while keeping full control on the politicians. The latest example has been the utterances of Thembani Mliswa Norton MP who caused a stir in a spread audio where he was accusing minister Ziyambi Ziyambi of consulting a faith healer for spiritual powers.
Themba ironically charges that the minister has visited a Mupositori with the intention of wanting to kill Temba and his sister. The irony of it is that only two months ago Suzan Mutami Thembi’s girlfriend told the. Action that Temba Mliswa travels all over Zimbabwe seeking spiritual healers to give him power and shockingly Suzan reveals that Temba in particular has requested the traditional healers to kill two ministers namely July Moyo the minister of local government and Owen NCUBE the minister of State security.
This idea of politicians seeking the blood of others through witch doctors has been the common thing in our country with allegations that the former Vice President Mai Mujuru slaughtered dozens of chicken and sprinkled the blood with the aim of killing the former president cde Mugabe and his then minister of Justice the current president Cde Mnangagwa.
The issue of wanting to kill another is the speciality of Temba Mliswa as Suzan Mutami would say it. We are told that Temba has an alter where he has placed the photos of July Moyo and Owen NCUBE . The gruesome information which emerges talks of Temba poking the photos of these two men sprinkling blood on their photos praying to his ancestors that they die. This he did in the presence of Mutami. Mutami continues to explain that Temba will then engage in some sexual rituals where he sleeps with both men and women.
What Temba describes in his audio against Ziyambi is exactly what we were told that he did and is still doing. So his accusations against Ziyambi are just a transfer of his acts and outing them all on Ziyambi. Temba believes that he is superior being. This is because of his overdose of Saru dry and witchcraft. Because he believe that he is above any reproach he attacks people with impunity.
Yes in his constituency Temba works very hard and he is the only MP who takes his time on social media giving his constituency parliamentary feedback. His hard work is motivated by the false hope he gets from these traditional healers he spends his time on. Projecting himself as a non-believer of superstitions Temba is a big time practitioner of black-magic and supported by many for this evil deeds. Now while this sounds odd, it is equally shocking and needs explanation. How could a Christian Mupostori be consulted for killing business. This Temba can explain better to us.
First of all, Temba Mliswa creates a political “aura” around himself creating a certain impression of character. Now this politician instead of creating a neutral aura, is trying to create a too positive aura and specific in the directions of what he is actually practicing secretly. He then finds comfort in shifting his fly by night business to Ziyambi so that attention does not go to him.
Anyway, coming to the point, he is a big time practioner of black magic and this gives him some courage to behave insane towards others yet he has a demonic origin and an expert sorcerer. This seer through well planned takeover in Temba’s mind. This witchcraft mashup has captured the highest position in the Political life and is in full control of the deity power. This literally means that he can use its power to his selfish desires and that is exactly what this politician Temba Mliswa has done in the last elections and in his daily life.
By demonic links, the Temba is linked to the demonic seer and in turn the seer is linked further to his demonic masters who keep Temba “locked” in the chain of mental self destruction to ensure the demonic acts sustain. There is a bigger hierarchy but that is not important now.
Temba Mliswa is a case in point. He is said to be holding different powers corresponding to three kinds of ritual — the to conquer death), (to eliminate enemies) and (to do harm to one’s adversaries).Temba is remarkably popular across the board of Zimbabwean politics. He is very well known by Patrick Zhuwawo who described him as a great person who had supernatural powers”.
Remember Temba was slapped by Zhuwawo’s wife in a meeting in Mashonaland West where his powers failed to work.
But Suzan Mutami was perhaps his most prestigious follower. Mutami declared that when she visited him at his official residence he attended to his alters together with Suzan which was a highly exceptional privilege.
Temba used his status as an close ally to the president as he allege to accuse any one without respect. With disciples in the business world, he is well placed to intervene and spill beans and fabricate stories on any politician.
Africa continent has remained one place of shadow shredded in the mystery of progressive setbacks. Many individuals had tried to demystify the ever setbacks that have confounded the continent over centuries but to no avail.
The pattern of Africa’s distraught is seen in all her countries. There is such a constant shadow that had refused to give way to a dawn of new age, glory and honour. The thick nature of these dark shadows continues to haunt and taunt the continent and has left it with little or no room to find answers to many recurring questions.
The belief in Juju is still holding Zimbabwe back from realizing its full potentials. Africa has remained a fertile ground where all forms of human discomforts are grown. Self-denial and lack of faith in its people continue to be a major illusion deluding the continent. Zimbabwe continues to sit in a mud and has not thought of rising up to wash off the dirt. How can we rise with people in our parliament who believe in some magic to improve our economy. With members of parliament who believe that they are about to be killed by a mupository in Chiweshe.
A country clothed in sacks wailing and weeping for her many pains and hopelessness. What has been the burden of darkness of the country? A veil of superstition still covers the face of the country allowing for constant darkness, mystery and illusion which nurture her dissipations.
Zimbabwe has long standing history of deep superstition composed in the beliefs of many uncertainties.
Strong beliefs in witchcraft, juju, gods, ancestors, black magic, sorcery, necromancy, ghost have converged as thick cloud over the minds of her citizens. Many Zimbabweans live in constant fear of these beliefs and strongly embrace them as a way of life. Witchcraft and wizardly prevail across the country and are employed largely to haul people down and even end their lives.
People use juju to procure fast riches and trigger their businesses and fight others in the contest of life. People put faith in juju in solving life problems on this part of the continent. Strong beliefs in gods and ancestors are found in almost all the countries in Africa. The gods according to strong Africa tradition dictate the pace of men and order their steps and above all control the affairs of men.
Huge sacrifices are made to these deities as well as the ancestors to avert misfortunes which are purely natural such as earthquake, flooding, outbreak of diseases, hunger. People invoke curses on their enemies in the name of God or of the gods and ancestors. Sorcery, necromancy and glare occultism prevail across the continent unabated. These are the roots of African superstition and it is deep seated in the minds of people and in the heart of the continent. So Temba Mliswa seek to absolve himself from his witchcraft antiques by blaming others.
Zimbabwe has become the breeding ground for demons and dark spirits because most of the practices invite the presence of these forces of darkness. The devil walks straight in the parliament. The seat of decisions is veiled in witchcraft.
Everything associated with misfortunes is hugely represented on the African continent. Hard-core poverty; hunger, diseases, wars, atrocities and sharing of innocent blood have found their seats on the continent. Religion, especially Christianity, teaches us that evil spirits have the tendency to torment; harass, destroy and even kill. These evil spirits draw their strength from placing strong faith in them. Evil spirits are call upon openly and libation made to them to employ their blessings.
Traditional priests and priestess known as Masvikiro are turning into preachers, some of them backing their teachings with the bible. The people are told that riches is brought by a wrist band. That water can make you Rich and can make you strong.
People have been conned in the name of God and nothing is done by those in power because they believe in the nonsense as well. Their worship is nothing more than traditional practices polished to suit modern age. Juju men call themselves prophets and assist people in getting juju to aid them in life.
There is open witchcraft on some parts of the continent. Religion has in some way come to deepen the superstition as critical and scientific or natural thinking have giving way to spirit-way-solution to all problems of life. There is a huge veil of superstition covering the face of the continent.
If a mighty hand had not moved against the country then how come the continent lacks the ability to utilize its numerous resources blessed with it by nature? How come wickedness continues to prevail across the country?
The veil of superstition is Zimbabwe’s huge burden which continues to constantly draw the continent into dissipation and hopelessness.
Our leaders are heartless and self-centered instead of human-centered. Some of them have dead conscience and have contributed largely to the sufferings of their citizens. Some of them employ juju (black magic) to ascend to power and use atrocities to curb their fellow countrymen. Hugely resourced but constantly begging for aid or assistance paint a clear picture of a damned country.
Superstition has robbed the politician from presenting himself a capable individual of leading his or her country; it has also robbed the businessman from generating new ideas as well as working hard to boost his business; the young man from pursuing healthy living but seek after juju for quick money.
Superstition has encouraged the religious leader to use black magic to rob the ignorant; it has robbed some religious folks from enlightenment and continues to rob the continent of all good things that man through purpose, commitment and critical thinking or natural thinking could have acquired for himself. Superstition is the king of Zimbabwe who sits right in the minds of many people and dictates their pace in life.
Superstition will tell you that many sicknesses in the country are spirit borne; they were not there until some witches brought them. Think of this: pornography did not start in Zimbabwe but it has the highest prevailing sexual transmitted diseases.
Superstition will tell you people are poor because they are blindfolded or being pursued by evil spirits who will never permit them to come out even if an individual is given $1million. He will squander it and come back to enjoy his poverty.
Superstition has prevented many people from coming out from poverty. Superstition has made our leaders heartless and constantly employing black magic in politics to win power rather than presenting themselves as worthy serving citizens. The veil of superstition is so huge that a Zimbabwean dream of deliverance is long fetched.
A country of bloodshed, juju, and witchcraft and wizardly, occultism, ancestral worship, gods and false prophets and enchantments is full of darkness. Zimbabweans forward to the time where she will be purged completely from these superstitious stains which has crippled its development and uplifting. Everywhere in the Country has some level of superstitious stains which continue to darken the minds of people and prevent any critical or natural thinking as well as scientific thinking which is the main force behind the development of many countries of the world.
The shame cast upon us by the Zvimba people is too thick. The belief that a dead president is still powerful is embarrassing and idiotic. A country which has more churches than the worshipers is the most evil one on earth
Ohhhh. Cry the beloved country.
Now, the interesting part is that the deity is the one who imparts knowledge has been misused to influence the mass by this MP Mliswa while he believes that the power of prayers of millions who believe in the real God has also been hijacked and diverted for evil deeds.The prophets who are supposed to guide us spiritually in turn gets the political favors to carry out his demonic deeds now at larger ever scale.
This has been supported by evangelists (actually expert sorcerers in disguise) from Tembas belief and the love of money. Now with people like Temba workers who enter the premises, are horrified to find lemon, chilly, vermilion and unknown materials wrapped in red cloth meant to protect Temba. Suzan Mutami can tell you more about Temba.
Temba’s behaviour explains why he thinks he is a bull.
Last month he took time to insult the hard working Police General Commissioner Matanga. Temba was boasting of his supernatural powers. He again leaked an audio where he was scandalising the president while he was talking to Tagwirei. He again leaked an audio he was purporting to be giving advice to the sons of the president.
His rotten system is to record himself then leak the audio. It was not a surprise that he recorded himself spewing rubbish on the minister of Justice.
A person who knows the road in a desert is the one who uses it. Temba took us in his dark world but this time but unfortunately he was using Ziyambi as a scape goat.
Temba knows very well that cars for the Members of parliament are their own personal property. They have purchased them through a parliamentary scheme. You do not need a government authority to drive those cars.
Can a lemon or a sliced pumpkin or a doll help defeat a candidate? To gain an upper hand in this high-stake electoral battle at the grassroots, so several candidates are turning to black magic as a means to trounce their opponents. Temba believes in black magic but he must not try to share his belief with the honourable minister.
It is true that polls have assumed significance with the involvement of several top politicians in the campaigning. Lemons, sliced pumpkin, chillies, coconuts, brown colour powder, dolls, etc. are being kept near a rival candidate’s house or at the junctions closeby. Pictures of enemies are kept on alters like the alter in Temba’s house.
The leaked audio which only has Temba talking shows the way Temba believes that he is the most powerful one.
Temba has no right to be the chief whip of ZANU PF. His bully mentality shows his romance with the dark world.
