President Robert Mugabe was yesterday embarrassed and humiliated by 2010 World Cup organisers when a large delegation accompanying him was denied entry into Soccer City stadium for the official opening of the soccer showcase, Zimdiaspora can reveal. Sources at the Zimbabwean embassy in South Africa told Zimdiaspora that Mugabe was accompanied by a delegation of over 50 people, but organisers barred all of them saying they were not invited and therefore unwelcome. An official at the embassy said only Mugabe himself, the first lady Grace and foreign affairs minister Simbarashe Mumbengegwi were allowed into Soccer City for the Official opening of the World Cup. “It was a very embarrassing moment as Mugabe’s people tried to force themselves into the stadium arguing that they were VIP’s by virtue of being part of a Presidential delegation. However, the organisers could have none of that and they were calmly told to leave as they were not invited,” he said. The Embassy Official said those denied entry into Soccer City were Mugabe’s Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) agents, senior Zanu PF officials, the dictator’s children and relatives, as well as state journalists. Senior government officials close to Mugabe among them the rabid permanent secretary of media, information and publicity George Charamba were also denied entry. Charamba is now considered a threat to the Government of National Unity due to his constant personal attacks and undermining of Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai through the Zanu PF propaganda mouthpiece, the Herald and ZBC. The Embassy Official said soon after being denied entry to the official opening of the World Cup, Mugabe’s people rushed to open shopping malls in Sandton to spend the thousands of dollars they were given in travel and subsistence allowances. “Zimbabwe Embassy staff all over the world are struggling to survive because of inadequate funding but Mugabe prefers to waste taxpayers money by coming along with such a huge delegation of cronies. This is typical of dictators. They only reward relatives and people who keep them in power,” he said. Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai and his deputy Professor Arthur Mutambara were also at the official opening of the World Cup, but they both traveled separately with Mugabe. Tsvangirai reportedly traveled with his new found love Locadia Tembo, a local businesswoman. Cheeky Chappie!!!
