Womanizer and bastard-baby-maker Tsvangirai

Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai on Saturday apologised to all those that were “inconvenienced” by his sexual escapades, including all his ex-lovers whom he dumped and then settled for Elizabeth Macheka.

Addressing several thousands of MDC-T supporters at White City Stadium in Bulawayo on Saturday, Tsvangirai said it was not his intention to hurt the feelings of anyone as he had been genuinely searching a life partner.

“It was a genuine search and therefore I would like to apologise to those that were inconvenienced. It was not my intention to hurt anyone,” said a remorseful Tsvangirai, to wide applause from party supporters attending the party’s 13th anniversary celebrations.

Tsvangirai also released 13 doves to mark the anniversary.

The MDC-T leader thanked his supporters for accepting Elizabeth, daughter of a Zanu PF central committee member, JJoseph Mackeka, as his wife.

“I would like to thank you all for welcoming my wife Elizabeth within the MDC family. I know the journey that I have travelled to make this choice has been rough,” said Tsvangirai.

“It has been filled with all sorts of troubles, but I am glad that eventually I have made a choice. I want to say that although the road was not easy, I had no intention of hurting anyone.”

The Premier wedded Elizabeth customarily after ex-lover Locardia Karimatsenga won a court order cancelling his marriage licence to the former.

The courts have ruled that Tsvangirai, who paid lobola to the Karimatsenga family in November last year, was still customarily married to the businesswoman.

Karimatsenga is now demanding a US$15,000 monthly maintenance from the premier.

Karimatsenga is now demanding a US$15 000 monthly maintenance from the premier.

Another ex-lover, South African Nosipho Regina Shilubane, also launched a court bid to stop the marriage, but she lost her case. Shilubane claimed she was hurt because Tsvangirai dumped her through a text message.

Tsvangirai was linked to several women following the death of first wife, Susan, who died in a car crash in 2009, shortly after Zimbabwe’s inclusive government was sworn in.

PM calls for the release of imprisoned MDC members

The MDC-T leader called for the immediate release of party youth assembly president Solomon Madzore and 28 others, who have been languishing in prison, facing charges of killing a policeman, Petros Mutedza in Harare’s Glen view suburb.

He said his arrest was political.

“Right now we do not have Madzore with us,” said Tsvangirai. “He is languishing in prison on charges of killing a cop. He is suffering because he is MDC. His arrest is just political. It is not criminal. We do not want the selective application of the law.”

The premier also accused Zanu PF of deliberately collapsing Bulawayo and the whole Matabeleland region.

“This city is decaying because of Zanu PF’s negligence. This city was the biggest employer when we were growing up. It is a deliberate policy of Zanu PF to marginalise and disenfranchise the people of this region,” he said.

Tsvangirai added: “The problems that the city faces are a manifestation of a deliberate policy by Zanu PF. I as the PM will not accept that Bulawayo should die.”

He said Zimbabwe had the potential to become a great state, had it not been for over three decades of misrule and corruption.

Earlier on, Tsvangirai had laid wreaths in remembrance of the scores of MDC T supporters who have been killed, kidnapped or died for the party since its formation 13 years ago.
