Gweru: Higher Education minister Jonathan Moyo yesterday embarrassed guests at Gweru Polytechnic College after he turned down their request for him to sing Jah Prayzah’s Mudhara Vachauya, a song widely associated with Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s bid to succeed President Robert Mugabe.

Moyo, who was the guest of honour at a graduation ceremony at the college, had asked graduands what song they wanted him to sing to mark their special day.

 When they shouted that he sings Mudhara Vachauya, Moyo hit back, saying: “Mudhara is already there”, suggesting there was no need to talk of Mugabe’s successor, as he was still serving his term.

“The old man is coming and where is he coming from when he is already there?” Moyo quipped.

 The song has often been played at many State and Zanu PF functions where Mnangagwa would be the guest of honour. Newsday
