G40 cabalist and National Patriotic Front member, Mr Saviour Kasukuwere, returned home yesterday after spending six months and six days in self-imposed exile.

Mr Kasukuwere, who was aboard a South African Airways plane, landed at Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport at midday.

Dressed in a blue suit, red tie and a brown leather cap, Mr Kasukuwere immediately declared that he was staying out of politics and focusing on his businesses and farming.

He said it was sweet to be back home and also confirmed life was not rosy abroad.

Kasukuwere said he made a personal decision to come back home.

“This is a personal decision. I come to my country. This is my country. I come because I am a Zimbabwean. I was born here. I will die here,” he said.

Mr Kasukuwere confirmed he was ready for his day in court if there are any charges preferred against him.

On the re-engagement with the international community by the President Mnangagwa-led administration, Mr Kasukuwere said it was necessary and a step in the right direction.

“It is necessary for the country to be part of the community of nations. We have got to be in there. We got to move our nation forward. We’ve got to access lines of credit and so forth so that Zimbabwe moves on. I do not think anyone can be against the agenda that will bring about more opportunities for our people. Zimbabwe is for all Zimbabweans and in fact it is sad that we remain bogged down in conflict when what we should be doing is to say how do we move our nation forward. The people expect much more. They do not eat our fights. People want food on the table. They want jobs. People want a better health system; that is what must define Zimbabwe,” he said.

Mr Kasukuwere denied suggestions that he was coming back to topple Retired Brigadier General Ambrose Mutinhiri from the NPF leadership.

“Zanu-PF is led by Cde Mnangagwa. NPF Brigadier General Mutinhiri, MDC-T Chamisa, so which party are you asking me to be leading? I am not coming to push anybody out of any position,” he said. zimpapers
