Late former President Robert Mugabe’s son, Bellarmine Chatunga has pocked fun at Vice President Constantino Chiwenga’s speech complications which often find the top government official pronounce the letter ‘L’ as ‘R’.
At a recent campaign rally ahead of the March 26 by-elections in Bulawayo’s Pumula suburb, Chiwenga ended his speech with the words, “God bress Pumura, God bress Burawayo”.
The VP, who was campaigning for Zanu PF, was trying to say, “God bless Pumula, God bless Bulawayo”.
A video clip of the VP’s statement went viral on social media with many finding the funny side of a top government official clearly mistaking ‘L’ for ‘R’.
Among those who have found amusement with Chiwenga’s pronounciation struggles
“God Bhuresi Pumura,” Chatunga posted on Twitter, accompanying the words with laughing emojis.
The funny part of the VP’s speech was made even more hilarious after a Zanu PF candidate was later thrashed by opposition CCC’s Sichelesile Mahlangu is Saturday’s Pumula by-election.
Mahlangu polled 3 092 votes against Zanu PF’s 1 212.
