August's Heroes, Villians and Clowns

Heroes
August is the month we celebrate the lives of the heroes and heroines of all phases of Chimurenga. It is s month to remember the people who have made Zimbabwe a better place for our people. Our collective memories of the struggle of our people from the first Chimurenga to our present struggle against detractors is reinforced and reinvented every second week of August.

It is important to note that this past month has been an eye-opener and lessons have been learnt. People have learnt that the freedom and peace we enjoy came at a high price. The liberation war was not a walk in the park, lives were lost, families destroyed and a country was found.  This country,  our country, our Zimbabwe is a product of a bloody revolution.


Defending the Revolution
On July 30, the people of Zimbabwe went to the polls to defend the revolution. The people of Zimbabwe knew what they wanted, and they voted. The people's vote was a true reflection of the wishes of all Zimbabweans. The people defended the revolution by voting for Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa.

Defending the Vote
Nelson Chamisa was not happy with the outcome of the elections. Nelson Chamisa the self-declared leader of the opposition alliance had indicated that he would dispute the elections if he loses. He did just as he had said during his campaign rallies. 
This was a reckless and provocative move to instigate demonstrations in the urban areas where he had garnered a majority of the vote. He declared himself the President of Zimbabwe and called for the urban voters to defend their vote.
It was  Nelson Chamisa belief that the very act of sending the MDC militia, the Vanguards, into the streets of Harare,  would result in the reversal of the elections results.
The convert operation of trying to overturn the will and wishes of the people of Zimbabwe started as a drunken orgy at Harvest House and ended tragically in the streets of Harare. The blood of innocent people was split in the process of trying to defend lost votes.

ConCourt Circus
Nelson Chamisa's, Vanguard instigated demonstrations were successful controlled and contained by the security forces. Nelson Chamisa learnt that the illegal route of going to the State House by force was futile.

Nelson Chamisa then resorted to the option which he should have done immediately after the elections, the legal option. He should have had the ballot boxes opened and a recount done within forty - eight hours of the announcement of the elections results. This option could have exposed him as he knew he had lost the elections.

Nelson Chamisa's petition at the ConCourt was a circus. It was well that it was broadcasted live for the whole nation to expose him as a  fool and a clown. The ConCourt was justified to dismiss his petition with costs.

Sanctions: MDC Alliance's Secret Weapon

 WIN OR SANCTIONS THREAT
I am not surprised at all that Nelson Chamisa, Tendai Biti, Dewa Mavhinga and Peter Godwin were in the USA in February and appeared before the USA Senate and called for the extension of ZIDERA sanctions on Zimbabwe. We should note that the visit and appearance were not in the public interest of the ordinary Zimbabwean. The four were there to push for the long-term project of reversing the land reform and returning the land to the Rhodesian settlers.

The objective of the visit was to smuggle the MDC into government at all cost. The MDC leadership did not hide this at all. Nelson Chamisa rhetoric on the outcome of the elections are well known and he repeated this at each and every rally in his campaign. He had to win the election or he would not accept the results. He said if he lost the elections every Zimbabwean would suffer.

THE SECRET WEAPON
He knew very well he could never win the elections but he said that he had a "secret weapon". The secret weapon as far as every Zimbabwean now knows are the ZIDERA sanctions. Mr Chamisa is the sanctions in working in the public interest or for your power hungry ego? Is inflicting pain on your fellow countrymen going to propel you to the Presidency of Zimbabwe? Do you mean that the 16 million Zimbabweans stole the elections from you? 

SANCTIONS AND THE ORDINARY PEOPLE
The question we should all ask and answer ourselves is: Do Nelson Chamisa and Tendai Biti really care about us ordinary Zimbabweans? If our answer is no, no sane person should be found putting their life on the firing line for these heartless politicians! What is even more saddening is to find many Zimbabweans who have been made poor by the first round of ZIDERA sanctions are celebrating the imposition of such evil measures on Zimbabwe. 



It is a fact that sanctions are there to punish us as a nation. It is the ordinary Zimbabweans who are suffering when it comes to the cash shortages. It is not the so-called targeted politicians that are suffering. When Nostro accounts are closed it is that business or entity that the poor Zimbabweans works for that closes. It is the ordinary Zimbabwean that ends up in the street jobless. The sanctions are targeted against all Zimbabweans, not individuals as the likes of Nelson Chamisa and Tendai Biti has led some of us to believe.


 ZANU PF, THE GOVERNMENT AND PEOPLE ARE NOT THE SAME

The people of Zimbabwe vote for one arm of Government which is the legislature. The legislature only last for five years. The legislature is made up of politicians. There are two other permanent arms of government the executive and the judiciary. The executive is made up of civil servants i.e teachers, nurses, soldiers etc. Please note that these are professionals and technocrats that are permanently employed in the executive and judiciary.

 My point is that sanctions affect the voters (never mind your party or who you voted for). The Bitis and the Chamisas are not calling only for the sanctions against 16 million Zimbabweans, but are blackmailing and threatening them as well. The sanctions are not against the Government of Zimbabwe but are against the people of Zimbabwe, that includes you.


SANCTIONS ARE ACTS OF VOTER TERRORISM
Why should ordinary people suffer? Why should we suffer because Nelson Chamisa and Tendai Biti have lost an election? Why are we made to suffer for exercising our democratic right to chose our leaders? The very act of calling for sanctions against the people of Zimbabwe is a betrayal of the people of Zimbabwe. Can we trust anyone in the MDC alliance to lead this country? No. The people have said that by voting for the leaders they trust.


The very act of the USA imposing sanctions on Zimbabwe is an act of terrorism. The sanctions are a direct attack against Zimbabwe. The sanctions are a tool for regime change and are equal to an act of colonialism by the USA government. The USA wants to dictate who should govern Zimbabwe. The people of Zimbabwe have spoken, they have chosen their leadership.

MDC Alliance Dilemna is To Vote Or Not To Vote

A timeline of confusion
The Doubting Thomas Or Nelson
We have been told that they are going to be no elections by the MDC alliance that there are no elections unless ZEC reform itself. The same MDC Alliance has been telling people(note that I do not call rally attendants supporters) at rallies that the must go and vote for Nelson Chamisa on the 30th of July.

If you are a potential voter for the MDC Alliance I know you are just as confused by the mixed up messages from the patched-up Alliance.

ZEC Bashing
The Zimbabwe Election Commission has openly be labelled as an extension of ZANU Pf political commissariat by Nelson Chamisa at all his political rallies. The rally attendants are being conditioned to the extent that they are no longer able to distinguish the line between ZEC and ZANU Pf.

The danger is to ruffle the feathers of the referee, which is ZEC, before the match. The sole aim is to provoke members of the commission. The labelling of the commission is aimed as to tarnish its image and to ultimately blame it, for the inevitable loss of the elections.

The Battle has been lost before 30th July
Passion OR Apathy
The ordinary man in the street is not sure if the MDC alliance is aware of the Zimbabwe electoral processes. The MDC alliance is not happy with the voters'roll. It is not even aware of the postal voters as witnessed in the Ross Camp debacle. The MDC Alliance is confused even with the number of polling stations. It also does not know exactly the number of its candidates participating in the elections.

The confusion in the MDC ranks drives the passion and hope in the ZANU Pf support base and will be the source of apathy for some potential voters.

Protesting Or Participating
 It is my belief that the MDC Alliance is protesting on everything on this elections. The voters are told that MDC is not happy with the

elections process but still want the same voters to participate. The voters and MDC supporters are not where the Alliance.

 Is the Alliance participating or protesting?

The Independent Candidates Syndrome

There is a wind sweeping our politically landscape. It is the rise of independent candidates who feel they can compete with established parties candidates . We will not only have a record number of political parties but we will have record number of independent candidates too.

CONSENSUS OR IMPOSITION

 The MDC alliance unclear method of electing candidates by consensus has not helped the situation. We have seen the likes of Majome of Harare West constituency elect to stand as an independent. It was not by choice but the policy of consensus on primaries has not gone down well with members of the MDC alliance. The consensus method, which has been a covert way of imposing candidates on the people, has resulted in disruption of the MDC alliance primaries. 

INDEPENDENTS IN THE MDC ALLIANCE 

The MDC alliance supporters has violently rejected the imposition of candidates by Nelson Chamisa. The likes of relatives of the late Morgan Tsvangirai imposed in certain constituencies by Chamisa has been rejected by the people. It is this move which will generate more independent candidates from the MDC alliance. 

NO PARTY IS SAFE

The independent candidates syndrome is not only restricted to the opposition , it will affect the ruling ZANUPF party too. ZANUPF recently held primaries had some disgruntled losing members threatening to stand as independents. It takes a brave person to stand as an independent. It is this bravado that is baffling. The independent candidates are not afraid to take on the established parties despite limited resources and lack of grassroots support .

I wish the independent candidates good luck.

Nelson Chamisa's Battle Between Legitimacy and idiocy

Fighting for Legitimacy
Jumping the Queue
Nelson Chamisa is in a very long fight for legitimacy, the battle started when he anointed himself heir to the late Morgan Tsvangirai. He catapulted himself into the MDC-T presidium and caused disillusionment amongst the leadership and MDC-T followers. It is an open secret that Nelson Chamisa is illegitimately holding on to the MDC-T presidency.

Congress or Coup
The disillusioned party members have gone ahead and held a congress and legally took the name MDC-T from Nelson Chamisa and his cabal.
The very move by Ms Khupe to hold a congress leaves Nelson Chamisa in a very awkward position in terms of legitimacy. If Nelson Chamisa is as popular as he thinks, why can he not call for a congress?  Ms Khupe has categorical said that Nelson Chamisa got the presidency through a coup.
Nelson Chamisa presidency is unconstitutional and he knows it.

Constitutionality or Crook
It is, not a secret that Nelson Chamisa is not concerned with what the MDC-T constitution say on how a President of the party is elected, he as an advocate is the best person to interpret and follow it.
Instead, he pretends to be a village idiot. He is playing to the gallery at the expense of party members and other voters in general. Nelson Chamisa got to the MDC-T presidency by hook and crook. This idiocy will be his downfall and will cost the MDC alliance.

Idiocy On Hard Talk
The BBC Hard Talk interview exposed the shortcomings of Nelson Chamisa. He failed to articulate his policies. The presenter wanted Nelson Chamisa to tell the world what he had for Zimbabwe if he was elected as President of Zimbabwe. He had nothing except empty criticism of Emmerson Mnangagwa. He proved himself as the perfect idiot.

Time is running out for Nelson Chamisa and the MDC alliance. It is a fact that the general election will be held before the 31st  of July. The question of Nelson Chamisa's legitimacy has to be resolved, and it needs to be resolved fast. It either the MDC alliance will have to go into the elections with Nelson Chamisa's idiocy or eject him from the alliance for credibility and legitimacy.

The Primaries And The Undemocratic Process

Where is the democracy in MDC?




The election is a democratic process of choosing a person to get into a public office.The process here in Zimbabwe normal starts at the grassroots level. What the MDC alliance is doing is to impose candidates. Imposition of candidates is a sure way to lose an election. 

Our questions as Zimbabweans to the MDC is;
 Where is the democracy in your name? 

Who is the democratically elected leader of MDC?

Where are the primary elections of aspiring members of parliament?



Bribing The Leader And Forgetting the Voter
The opposition MDC has sitting Members of Parliament paying $1000 to the self-imposed Nelson Chamisa, so as to get their place in the next election. The question here is, is this a democratic process? Are same MPs going to pay the voters in their constituency? The MDC approach to the election process is undemocratic and it will cost them voters and they will definitely lose the elections.

The MPs have bribed their leader and forget the people who are going to vote for them.




The Parties and Primaries

The Zanu-PF primaries are the true democracy at play. Let the masses elect their leaders, young, middle-aged or old. The crux of the matter is the ability of the chosen candidate to perform. The general public must question the way the MDC alliance is handling the election process. Those shadowy NGOs and fake civic organisation must comment on the going on in the MDC.

Youth Vote And Generational Renewal

This notion of thinking that the youngsters are the alternative leadership is misplaced. The Zanu-PF primaries are a good indicator that a party can undergo generational renewal using the available democratic processes. A good leader will always be identified by the electorate.

The youth vote is not the monopoly of the opposition parties as seen by the youth participating as voters and candidates in the Zanu-Pf primaries. The MDC must look at itself if they need to be relevant and appealing to the youths of Zimbabwe.

We the people of Zimbabwe are all for the youth. The future of the country and the revolution is in their hands. Let the youths play a role in all our democratic processes.

Zimbabwe is forever!!

Zimbabwe's Politics Prophecy or Predictions

 I wrote on the following before the coup, the renewal of ZIDERA sanctions and Morgan Tsvangirayi's death in February 2018. This is not a prophecy but events that lead to a predictable end.I wrote those events on my blog and history has proved me right on the following.


Saviour Tyson Kasukuwere

'The political commissar has been accused by both the war veterans and youths, as out of touch with the grassroots of the party.
He might be the saviour of the party or as destructive as  Mike Tyson." I wrote last year.

 OUTCOME: 

Saviour Tyson Kasukuwere is no longer Zanu-PF political commissar. He fled into exile after the coup. 


"The USA ZIDERA  sanctions on Zimbabwe have been routinely been renewed in February since 2001. The sanctions are bound to be renewed again by a fool of a President,  Donald Trump.

It is also good to note that we sent our fools to the USA, in the form of Nelson Chamisa,  Tendai Biti,  Dewah Mavhunga and that diehard Rhodesian Godwin. The four advised the USA not remove the sanctions but to tighten them, despite us having got rid of Robert Gabriel Mugabe.

The result of the treacherous action by those four will be felt after the USA President renew and tighten the sanctions on Zimbabwe. Each and every 14 million Zimbabweans will continue to suffer under those sanctions." I said that.


OUTCOME

The sanctions were renewed at the behest of the MDC T and Rhodesian sympathisers.



"It is a fools month and the MDC cannot be seen to be left out. Chamisa has unilaterally declared himself the de facto successor to the ailing Tsvangirai.He is the president of the MDC and the broken coalition. Mudzuri, Khupe and other congress elected leaders have been relegated to the backseat.

This month is going to end up badly for the opposition, we wait to see which fool will lead the MDC and the clueless coalition." I wrote.

OUTCOME

Nelson Chamisa lied his way to the MDC T leadership. He now is the de facto leader of the MDC alliance



"While one heroine was dancing with the devil, this other heroine from Manicaland was burning the chair she was sitting on. She could see the smoke but could not identify where the fire was coming from.
The smoke is still blowing but our heroine has ungracefully retreated to her honourable office. It is a month of utter madness." I said that last year.

OUTCOME

Mandi is now in exile and the person she insulted at a rally is now the President of Zimbabwe.
