Presidential Spokesperson George Charamba is delusional. Maybe there is something in the water his drinking in his office. Since, the article released or edited today named ‘Chamisa is Hindering Talks With ED – Govt’ published in the Daily News by Sindiso Mhlope. If it wasn’t for that piece and the quotes from Charamba, I wouldn’t even retort to him today.
Now that the cat is out of the bag. Let’s be clear here. It is not a level playing field. Neither is the POLAD anything else than PR stunts by the government, which Charamba represent. He will not state that, but what has it achieved? Well, pretty little to nothing. Except for feeding the fuel of the useful puppets of the regime within the rest of the opposition.
So, the supposed talks there between Chamisa and Mnangagwa would be fruitless. The premise and the platform is only for press releases and statements. It isn’t made for true reforms or changes within the institutions of the state. No, it is just a work-shop with no tools, no mandate and no results to speak off. That is the state of POLAD and the “talks” with Mnangagwa.
In my mind hindering these talks isn’t a real bother, because what is anyone getting in return? Your putting in no work and you still expect a feast? That isn’t feasible. You need to harvest the food, prepare it and then serve it. However, the state expect a three course meal with fine wine without any burden.
Why do I say it like that?
Well, if ZANU-PF had any legal issues, pounding pressure and was squeezed by the state at every turn. Would you talk to anyone? Would you give way? When the opposing party owns the state and has all power. The ZANU-PF runs everything and has all the advantages. They got everyone pinned their way. Nothing is going in favour of Chamisa and the MDC-Alliance. It is like they cannot even speak before going directly to prison. The MDC-Alliance cannot even be a running party without have some sort of play from the state to stifle their every move.
Therefore, Charamba wouldn’t be all high and mighty if he worked on the toils, the sweat and the hardships, which Chamisa and his comrades are doing. He would be running across the border into exile.
It is like the guys of ZANU-PF is obliviously blind to their own actions towards others. Nevertheless, expect someone like Chamisa to kiss the ground that ED walks. ZANU-PF expect the opposition to just dance to their tune and play along. That is how it looks like with this interview. The spokesperson trying to pin it to be a battle of the ego’s of Chamisa and Khupe. In that regard, Khupe is a pawn of ED at this point. Chamisa is independent, Khupe needs the state to fuel her tank to get anywhere. Therefore, the thought that this is stifling the talks is obnoxious.
Even if there was talks, they would be futile, because what part would the state offer to Chamisa and the MDC-Alliance? What would they give or offer to contribute to the damage, the hurt and the suffering put upon them?
Most likely they are not planning to do that. Since that would mean they need to humble themselves and actually give something up. That is not how this government operates or behaves. They rather bury their enemies, than actually talk to them. That’s why the delusion of the spokesperson is as clear as day. Peace.
