Opinion: Mwonzora wants to rule in two houses…

Douglas Mwonzora the Secretary General of the MDC-T wants to also run the MDC-Alliance. He wants to be the big-man both places just like his boss Thokozani Khupe. Mwonzora wants to have the ability to recall and change the leadership within the MDC-Alliance and the MDC-T. Playing to parties at the same time. While claiming to do it after the 2014 structures. Which by itself is ridiculous.

Not weird the state is sanctioning it and letting bygones be bygones, as they are getting a field day. Mwonzora get to be crowned king and spend time in the media. He looks the chief, the crowned mastermind and head honcho. Douglas make it seems so easy, but does he think the world is stupid?

We all know the government and the state wants to assault and silence the MDC-Alliance. That is why Khupe and Mwonzora are useful pawns. They are tools for destruction, their own self-destruction for a few pieces of silver. While they are causing havoc with the MDC-Alliance. It is double whammy and ZANU-PF can laugh to the bank. A bank they have robbed, skimmed from and left nothing behind for the public share.

Mwonzora wants to rule supreme in two houses. Unless he has an open relationship, if his a swinger and the wife allows him to bang other chicks on the side. It is unjustified to be like that. Think that he can run to two households and not be called out on it.

Who do you think you are? How foolish do you think the public is?

Maybe, the silver coins from ZANU-PF blinds your vision. Maybe, the flamboyant behaviour of late is facade. Douglas you cannot keep it up. The games are sooner or later over. You might look like a victor now. You maybe seem like a supreme leader in your mind. However, in reality you are still just a foot-soldier. Awaiting the trenches and the taste of blood.

The former lecturer of law at the University of Zimbabwe, the lawyer for the United Parties and former spokesperson for the MDC. Mwonzora knows the political game and what gamble he does know.

Douglas knows perfectly well the game he plays. He is maybe on the tip of the hill right now. Mwonzora is overlooking the valleys and feeling great. However, that will not be lasting. For one simple reason: You cannot rule in two houses. The MDC-T and MDC-Alliance isn’t the same thing. The parties are different for a reason, as the MDC-T is the rebellious faction who is retaliating against the victors post-Tsvangirai. It is really that easy, but they like to peasants used by Mnangagwa.

It must be nice to be used, later dropped and forgotten. These people of the MDC-T will be dropped as quick as their usage are over. They will be in the dustbin of history. All their hard work and dedication just forgotten.

Mwonzora is most likely thinking the enterprise is wise. That his so brilliant, but he cannot see how’s his fooling himself. Unless, his that stupid and thinks he can run both entities. While claiming the legitimacy. However, that is not how it works. He maybe think so and the PFee busy-bodies peddle that nonsense too. Still, that doesn’t make it a fact.

Douglas, hope you like being used and hope your bank-account is pregnant. Because, when this is all boiled over. Those envelopes got to carry you. We see you and saw what you did. This is who you are now. You have been arrested for insulting Mugabe, but at the moment your insulting your own intelligence. Peace.

Zimbabwe: MDC-Alliance – Statement on the Recall of 9 MDC Alliance MPs from Parliament (23.06.2020)

Opinion: Charamba is high on his own supply

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.

Zimbabwe: Khupe’s latest enterprise undress her motives [the MDC debacle]

President Emmerson Mnangagwa and his Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) are working in tandem with the Movement for Democratic Change – Tsvangirai (MDC-T). The MDC-T is the puppets who helps ZANU-PF to destroy the MDC as we know it.

The ones being use is Thokozani Khupe, Douglas Mwonzora, Morgen Komichi and Elias Mudzuri. They are being used to undermine the Movement for Democratic Change – Alliance (MDC-Alliance). Instead of building a strong MDC-T on their own. They initiating several of tricks to destroy and ambush the MDC-Alliance. Since, they got no morals nor credibility to fight the battle against ZANU-PF on their own.

They did it first with the Court Judgment in mid-May 2020 and over the weekend now in June they used the military to evict, arrest and takeover the Harvest House in Harare. This is happening, while the Electoral Commission has suspended elections. There will be no By-Elections for the MPs suspended to give MDC-T time to destroy MDC-Alliance.

This is all done to undermine the MDC-Alliance. That is the reality of it all. If you don’t see that, then your following the drill. The state is using all means to distress to and hijack MDC. That Khupe, Mzonzora, Komichi and Mudzuri doesn’t see it. Maybe, the dollar signs and the POLAD talks have blinded their view. So, they don’t get common sense.

The only thing I see, other than the misuse of power from the state. The inflicting terror on the leadership of MDC-Alliance and activists connected to it. What I do see is some useful stooges. Stooges willingly being played and used by the state to wreck the MDC-Alliance. There isn’t anything else too this.

We could toy around and make conspiracies, but that wouldn’t make sense at this point. Since this is very simple and the motivation is to ensure the MDC-Alliance is busy fixing itself. Than actually being an active opposition. Who has the time to actually fight oppression and a junta, when your under fire every single minute?

These people will never have the time, just to mention a few, these being: Nelson Chamisa, Tendai Biti, Douglas Coltart and Fadzayi Mahere. These people are in trouble no matter what they do. If they are trying to occupy their own offices, if they are trying to get their people out on bond or just speaking out. Since, the ZANU-PF always see a fault and its never good enough. They are not the willing servants of the state. Therefore, they are getting burned at every single step they take.

ZANU-PF and MDC-T are using all the tools of their disposal. The whole shed in the garden is put out. Soon several of the leaders of MDC-Alliance will be in one of the court rooms at Rotten Row on botched up charges or some sort of forged criminal conspiracy. Which is only made, because they want to silence these people at any cost.

They have already decided the leadership and which conference that matters. They have issued orders to intervene and takeover the offices at Harvest House. Next up is just ensuring the ones who defies this pays a price. That is the only thing making sense. Since, they have gotten this far and the MDC-T working in tandem with the state. Want to win and their victory is near. Even if the victory is short-sighted and without merit. They haven’t done it internally, neither with means of popularity from within. No, they have used outsiders to breach the peace and conquer someone else.

If Khupe, the other comrades thinks this is wise. I hate to say it, but its a foolish enterprise. They might get the logo, the title and the house. Nevertheless, they are not getting the glory. They are not owning the support nor the backing that MDC-Alliance really has.

You can fool someone once, but you cannot fool them twice. Then they see through you. They are now seeing the MDC-T as a tool for oppression and following government agenda. If they think this smart. It’s not and will only be their downfall. They might be crowned kings temporarily, but their kingdom will not be real. It’s more likely that Khupe and company arrives without wounds in Narnia, than they become royalties in the real world. Peace.

Opinion: Mnangagwa’s Indefinitely lockdown is a perfect tool for oppression

That President Emmerson Mnangagwa today revealed in a National Address that the state are prolonging the lockdown in the Republic. Not that’s unheard of or without reasons to do. This been done worldwide. However, when you continue the lockdown indefinitely. That opens up whole other can of worms.

Especially, when the ZANU-PF and President Mnangagwa has sent his enemies and the ones his fallen out into the Court system. The MDC-Alliance is under fire from all angles and his friends in the MDC-T is trying a coup d’etat on that one. By using the external forces and the support system of ZANU-PF to control the MDC and the MDC-Alliance. Just to signal a red flag and a warning, as Nelson Chamisa and his team is seeing their folks and activists suddenly vanishing, arrested and tortured in the midsts of the lockdown.

That is why an indefinitely lockdown open up the ability to oppress in another fashion. Expect more sudden disappearances. Expect citizens in harms way as they are just trying to feed themselves. While the ZANU-PF are giving away things to their constituencies, but not even trying to do it in the areas of the opposition. And if the Opposition Members of Parliament tries to do it. Than, they are not following state directives and will get into trouble. That is how these saga’s goes.

The President is using this, while the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe is unleashing new banknotes. The economy is already crashing. There is no remedy and the Republic have not gotten a package from abroad to save it. Neither, is any foreign investors lining up to build factories nor invest in farming. They are not there and the empty promises keeps haunting the Republic.

Like the health care system is struggling to say the least. The ways of society is broken, because the state has been looted over so long time. It was just a matter of how far the President and his men could stretch it. You can just push the envelope so far, before things give in.

It isn’t like there is a magically spectrum. Like the actions are changing. Because, when you have indefinite powers and lockdown measures. The public is more stuck and the society is on-hold. There is no demos or anything, because if you do. The public will be harmed and brutal force of the armed forces will be back-at-it-again. Which has happen in the past and could easily again.

With this one, the most likely scenario isn’t to use it stop COVID-19 or the Coronavirus. Because, if they did. They would have done more testing and secured the ratio of testing in areas where the spread already appeared. However, there been minimal of testing and also warning signs from the doctors and nurses associations. So, its not like the President has been a champion for their struggles or needs in this pandemic.

That is why this is a smokescreen. Because the President knows, that the dire situation is there. The government cannot fake the troubles forever and “the shit will hit the fan”. It just a matter of time, before the time-bomb of economic crash and lacking foreign reserves. They can fake it in the midst of a lockdown and emergency. As they are directly controlling it all and has the final say. Nevertheless, that doesn’t last forever. Reality will kick-in and then the salvation will not be COVID-19, but a reality check. Where the checks and balances will be touched.

The President knows this and wants to rule be decree. Using the pandemic to gain political mileage and ensure his enemies suffer. This is end-game here. He will use the means he has now to secure more power and weaken his opposition. That is what he will do and he has started already. Why can I say that? Well, the proof of the actions against the MDC MP Cecilila Joanah Mamombe and the other two. Also, the Court activity in favour of MDC-T Khupe against MDC-Alliance Chamisa. That is all to undermine the opposition while under lockdown.

Therefore, the man is stopping all rallies, all demonstrations and everything else. While using the cover of COVID-19. If he was just battling that and stopping the first wave. There would be a sort of time frame and some points on the curve the state and Health Officials would say was needed. Before the lockdown stops.

However, when you using it indefinitely, than there is a whole another game in mind. Than, its becomes a situation where you initiate special powers and usage of it. Just so you can rule and reign without ordinary precautions and oversight. Since, it is a state of emergency and the powers are all on you.

That is why Mnangagwa wants to have it like this forever ever and beyond. Because that gives him the powers to assault, use the police and authorities as he see fit and say it was his directives. That to initiate even more control and only secure passage to ones in his personal court. Peace.

Movement for Democratic Change – Alliance: Communique of the MDC Alliance Standing Committee (06.05.2020)

Opinion: Khupe is a very useful pawn…

That the Movement for Democratic Change – Alliance (MDC-A) is under fire these days is an understatement. They are battling forces from the outside and within. The power they will show is their balance of wit and of strength towards both the ZANU-PF Emmerson Mnangagwa and MDC-T with Thokozani Khupe.

Khupe and Mnangagwa is clearly the team, the buddies and the ones who are doing the bidding together. With the Court order of internal change of leadership within the MDC, the recall of MDC MPs and the 50 police officers at the Harvest House or the Tvansigirai House in Harare.

All of this is happening during the lockdown. While people are pre-occupied getting their roller-meals and food in general. They are not caring what is happening with the MDC-A. The ZANU-PF knows this and uses the free window to do this.

They are assaulting the MDC-A Headquarters, they are targeting MDC-A MPs and also elevating the Khupe team. Just in time to fix the issues for Nelson Chamisa and MDC-A.

The answer from the MDC-A is to expelled Douglas Mwonzora, Morgen Komichi and Elias Mudzuri from the party. While also, suspending all activity in Parliament from their MPs and Senators. This is a big deal, since they are biggest opposition party.

This is an direct reaction to the actions from ZANU-PF and the state, which interference directly with the party. It is also Douglas Mwonzora letter, which is the reason for the assault on the Harvest House today.

We are seeing movement and finally the MDC-A are doing direct action, not only getting moves done to it. This might cost, as this might flag the ZANU-PF and the Parliament into action. If they stops all actions over time. They are maybe opening up for By-Elections. Where the state will rig the party to a bigger chunk of MPs and such. That is a gamble the MDC-A should take, as they are only losing in the chambers of the state anyway.

The MDC-A are the ones whose the force of change and needs to be on the forefront. Not only live within the parimeters of the ZANU-PF. Both show another face to the reality produced by ZANU-PF. Which they are by defying the Parliament and their work. They are showing force with this. Peaceful defiance against the authorities who are all against it. Not even needing court orders or warrants to go with Police Officers to the Harvest House. This is just the reality.

That the ZANU-PF does this is clear. That they are using Khupe as pawn is clear too. Just like she like being used. She will neither be welcome by the real MDC nor respected, because they know she’s a pawn of Mnangagwa. She’s being used and will be remembered as such. There is nothing she can do. Khupe is a tool and a useful one, but not a righteous one. A Molotov Cocktail into a dry-grass and hoping it burns down the house. Peace.

Opinion: Someone should petition the Courts over “Operation Restore Legacy”

We are seeing these days how Nelson Chamisa and the Movement for Democratic Change – Alliance (MDC-Alliance) and Thokozani Khupe of the Movement for Democratic Change – T (MDC-T) fought in the Courts. Khupe won in the Supreme Court and has the rights of the MDC-A or the MDC. As this is happening and the Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) high ranking officials and cronies are cheering to this. The drama the and troubles caused by this Court Judgement.

However, they are throwing stones in a glass house. Even worse, as there was reasons for the choice and election of Chamisa as a succession of Morgan Tsvangirai. There was no automatic place for Khupe, that is why she haven’t made herself a big-shot after making MDC-T. This is just a fact.

Now, why do I say this now. Well, the ZANU-PF, the apologists and voices of the PFee. Better Netflix and chill. Better sit in the SUVs and on enjoy their looted funds. Because, their patting their backs and saying: “look at MDC and how they are not following codes and respecting the laws”.

However, the ZANU-PF as it is today wasn’t build on the Party Constitution nor the possible natural succession. That is why President Emmerson Mnangagwa is on his first official term from 2018. While he took power in November 2017. That November 2017 had the acts of sending Mnangagwa to exile in South Africa, getting started and being a part of the “Operation Restore Legacy” which was started on the 13th November 2017. On the 15th November the “Coup that wasn’t a Coup” happen. They house-arrested Mugabe and other associates. On the 19th November the Central Committee of the Party removed Mugabe and replaced him with Mnangagwa. Already by 21st November 2017 Mugabe sent the resignation letter, as the Party pressured for impeachment proceedings against him. By 21st November 2017 Mnangagwa was inaugurated as interim President.

As you see, the Operation Restore Legacy wasn’t even following the needs of the ZANU-PF Party. They used measures and means, which isn’t in the protocol of the ruling regime. The Party itself has an Constitution. A Constitution, which states that the Congress has the powers to elect the Party President. Which in November 2017 was Mugabe. Secondly, the Extraordinary Congress could convene with Three Quarters to be held for a specific matters, which could have been succession. However, the Central Committee is a part of both of these, but they are not the governing body. The Central Committee, which has a fixed Program made by the Politburo. The Central Committee can nominate a President and First Secretary of the Party, but they cannot elect. The election happens at a Congress or an Extraordinary Congress. Therefore, by these means, its an easy argument to say that the “Operation Restore Legacy” of General Constantino Chiwenga and Emmerson Mnangagwa.

This is very easy to track and show, as the dates of November 2017 shows the neglect, the lack of protocol and the way they took down Mugabe. Even though Mugabe was a dictator for 37 years. There was no other way to get rid of him in Office. However, that doesn’t mean Mnangagwa was righteous and following protocol. Not even the protocol of the Party, which he represents. That is very simple.

Chiwenga and Mnangagwa did this because of the G-40 was purging their allies and friends of Lacoste in ZANU-PF. They retaliated and did the Coup, because they had the means to do this. They got the price of the state and running the nation after Mugabe. Not they are a real change, more of the same, the same ills and just a new Head. That is the reality.

The courts did this to Chamisa, to humiliate him and his position. As his the main target in Opposition. However, there should be someone with the courage and balls to petition the Courts to challenge “Operation Restore Legacy” and the succession in the ZANU-PF. That would have been golden at this very moment. If the Courts can look into MDC and their internal affairs. Than, they should do the same with ZANU-PF. Who had even a more contested succession, than what the MDC had.

That is why Khupe even as a winner is a giant looser. Since, she might have the legal rights and jurisdiction, but she doesn’t have the support nor the popularity of Chamisa. She is a empty vessel and cannot bring anything to port. MDC is Chamisa and his team, not Khupe and the MDC-T of deflectors.

That is why the G-40 might not own or be apart of the ZANU-PF today. However, Mnangagwa should be challenged by the same means. Because, it is easy to see in their Constitution that the conduct to the “Operation Restore Legacy” is wrong and not right. Therefore, ZANU-PF should answer and show legality of the Head of State and him being the President of ZANU-PF. That would just be fair, especially if this Courts are partial and not only mere puppets like PFee claims.

However someone has to challenge it and petition the Courts. It might be dismissed straight away. That proves the mute point of the puppets there. It proves the singular state, where all institutions are absorbed by the ZANU-PF. They are all appointed and works for them, that is why the judgement wouldn’t work against it. However, the idea of doing it, shows flex and force. Maybe even Chamisa should do it?

So, he could flex with his comrades. Peace.

Opinion: Khupe is the lucky loser and Chamisa is still the heir

Sometimes, you know your a pawn and acts like a pawn. Thokozani Khupe of the Movement for Democratic Change – T (MDC-T) is now the sole proprietor of MDC-Alliance (MDC-A) after a victory in the Supreme Court today. This reinstating him, however, he will not been seen as a winner nor a justified ruler. Even if the Courts delivered this. This is just the Supreme Court doing the bidding of the ZANU-PF and their compatriots who wants the remains of Morgan Tsvangirai gone and let POLAD mission continue.

The verdict today:

THE Supreme Court has ruled that Nelson Chamisa is not the legitimate MDC leader in a judgment that settles the drawn out leadership wrangle between him and Thokozani Khupe. In his ruling, Chief Justice Luke Malaba also reinstated the MDC (then MDC-T)’s 2014 structures. The ruling could also be triumph for tormented top MDC politician Douglas Mwonzora, who was then secretary general” (Costa Nkomo – ‘UPDATED: WATCH – Khupe Triumph As Supreme Court Rules Chamisa Not Legitimate MDC Leader’ 31.03.2020).

Khupe might seem like a winner, but he isn’t, she’s actually a lucky loser. Even with the victory, whose behind him and what sort of support will he have?

She’s slowly digging her own grave. The party structure and the MDC-Alliance has all been behind Nelson Chamisa. They have been so, because he was the heir of Tsvangirai. The man who prepared Chamisa.

Khupe had problem with Chamisa back in February 2018 when Tsvangirai appointed Chamisa as acting President of the Party. Therefore, we knew that she would take it ill, as the co-VP would be anointed and put on the back-burner. So, today in March 2020 is a vindication, but a empty victory.

She is now a pawn of the regime. Instead of being someone who keeps the mantle of Tsvangirai and continue to work towards the regime change. She’s instead doing the state favours by taking Chamisa and his team away. By disenfranchising the biggest obstacle of the state. She’s weakening the opposition and even making the MDC-A less relevant by taken power over it. It’s like she wants to be Queen, but isn’t even a Duchess.

Khupe your a pawn, a useful pawn, but you will not have not have a legacy worth the paper the titles are written on it. It will all wither, because you destroyed MDC for your gains and not for furthering the struggle against ZANU-PF. You became a useful tool and they used you. Hope it was worth it. Since, we will not remember you in favourable terms. Peace.

Opinion: Tsvangirai, the man who had deserved to be President!

There are some fellows walking on this earth, who has deserved with their persistence and leadership, with their potential and their spirit. That they are justified to become President. The way they are and their aura. It is rare and unique. Morgan Tsvangirai and his Movement for Democratic Change – T (MDC-T) had deserved to carry that mantle. The way he carried himself through the oppression and the hacks who took him for granted.

Tsvangirai has proven to resilient and strong, he got played, but still showed his character. No one would have judged him if he had given up after the Second Round Elections and the rigged affair of 2008. With all the merciless use of force and the obvious stolen elections. Someone could have given in and said enough. Instead, he shown his leadership abilities. The way he continued to build his party and take a path towards a better tomorrow.

Tsvangirai shouldn’t just be remembered for being the main opposition of former dictator Robert Mugabe, who ruled until last November 2017. Who kept him away from the office and from the Presidency, by all means. Tsvangirai tried by all means to get there and used with peace. He didn’t want to take power by the guns, like Mugabe did and never left. He was tricked by the Global Political Agreement that made him Prime Minister, even if he won the 2008 election. That shows the conning ways of Mugabe and the Southern African Development Community (SADC) helper Thabo Mbeki. His weakness of Mbeki and wishes for stability by any means. That gave Mugabe a freeway to stay in power.

Therefore, Tsvangirai was risked on the alter and ZANU-PF, the Mugabe Presidency lingered on and the MDC-T and the MDC turned into different fractions. That is why it’s with time become the MDC-Alliance. Where some has given up Tsvangirai and others still has hope for the man. Even if he has been sickly and weak, there has still been hope that he could run against ZANU-PF new President Emmerson Mnangagwa. However, today we know, that Mnangagwa doesn’t need to fear Tsvangirai. His body gave way and he finally got peace.

Tsvangirai has fought a battle, he has risked it all and seen comrades die in the street. He has campaigned for a just cause, he has done it with swift actions and persistence. No one can take that away from him.

He has often spoken of not retribution against the regime, against Zanu-PF and Mugabe. Even as he has used the military and police to stifle the MDC. This Tsvangirai did even with the International Community and with communications, which been leaked in United States Embassy Cables. Therefore, Tsvangirai proved his legacy and his wishes of peaceful transition. Not making the same mistakes as in the past of violence and retribution. That could have been understandable with the violations and the harassment of the MDC. Still, he wouldn’t budge and give-in.

That is leadership and consistency. He had deserved to win in 2008, he won it in 2008 by my definition. It was ZANU-PF and SADC who gave it Mugabe. Tsvangirai knew this, but on the alter of International Pressure and a transition, while struggling with hyper-inflation. He gave in and gave way to Mugabe. This is sooner used and his men got the powerful positions. While Tsvangirai was the galleon figure to the international community.

There are people who says he lost 2013 because the party was confused, well, it wasn’t like he would have had the same backing or powerful message after been in power as Prime Minister. A position made to shut him down and not give him enough to be a problem for Mugabe.

Tsvangirai has run against Mugabe since 2002 and has had decent results, he shown that character and resilience matters. I think that he would have been a worthy successor and would have made changes worthwhile. He wasn’t an international stooge, but the world wanted someone else than Mugabe. Mugabe had gone from Liberation Hero into a totalitarian dictator. He had shown his despicable ways. That Tsvangirai proven to different from and wanting a peaceful transition.

Tsvangirai tried to cross the bridge, he tried to find the peaceful means to cross and get there. He worked for over a decade as a Presidential Candidate in the MDC-T. He had deserved to win and be it. Even during the worst economic crisis in near history. MDC could have mustered a direct change and not just a challenge to Mugabe.

Tsvangirai seemed like much more. MDC-T and could have been a great President. However he never got to call the shots, he got played and was tricked. If he in the end became tired and not as fierce as in the past. That comes with age and with experience. There is just as many times you can try the same thing and seeing no change.

Tsvangirai died today, not fool, not a loser, but a legendary politician who fought for the betterment of Zimbabwe and for its people. His service to the country should be remembered. Also his trials and tribulations. The MDC wouldn’t have a power struggle and leadership question of late, if it wouldn’t be for the foundation built by Tsvangirai.

That is just the result of the work done by Tsvangirai. This shouldn’t be forgotten.

Tsvangirai shall not be remembered because of Mugabe, but because of how he fought and did what he could to stand against him day in and day out for years. If people give up and start farming, instead of fighting dictatorship. That would be natural, but Tsvangirai didn’t. That is inspirational and should show us all. How to carry and try to make change into the society you wish for. Not that all tricks and all sorts of play work. However, you cannot deny that he didn’t do what he could.

Tsvangirai, your a hero and a lost one now. But your legacy and your achievements will be inspirational for generations to come. Peace.
