Robert Mugabe Meets The Greedy and The Liars

The war veterans did meet President Robert Mugabe. It is what transpired in the meeting that has the ordinary people of Zimbabwe talking. The war veterans and the party they belong to are at loggerheads as to how to run the affairs of the party ZANU Pf.Here is my take on the meeting.

The war veterans want total control of the party by grabbing the Commissariat Department .All party organs are now to be headed by a war veteran. They want to grab strategic organs of the party.

The recommendation that wants all the  committees  chaired by war veterans.The recommendation if adopted will have war veterans heading the Provincial Committees and the National Executives of the Youth and Women . This recommendation  will affect all post holders from the cell to the Politiburo must and must be War Veterans. It will be war veterans at all levels.

This recommendation is undemocratic in the first place and secondly what will the current pool of war veterans have the political skills to mobilse the grassroots to vote them into office.

The good that did come out of the meeting is the setting up of clear disciplinary procedures. The so called vote-of-no-confidence gimmick by the Provincial Executive Committees was rightfully banned.

This vote-of-no-confidence was one of the most undemocratic thing where an executive has the power to suspend a member of the party,without consulting the leadership or the grassroots membership.

The meeting went on to give powers to the National Disciplinary Committee to suspend or expel members in consultation with the Central Committee.

The selfishness displayed by the war veterans at the meeting was appaling to say the least. They think Zimbabwe belongs to no one else except themselves.It is 34000 against 15 million and everyone of us want a share.

The party and government must not allow this chicanery of extortion to continue. Enough is enough.These people have no long-term plans for the nation and lack social responsibility.They believe the world revolves only around them and  their well-being. What about the other 15 million of Zimbabweans.

The meeting was important and as President Robert Mugabe rightfully pointed out there is a need to meet the war veterans regularly. The President needs to meet every organs of the party after this meeting in order for him to get feedback and input from Zimbabweans .
