“Advocate Thabani Mpofu, Nelson Chamisa’s lawyer, says he got a call from MDC-T leader Thokozani Khupe seeking “my assistance” on her party’s congress after mistaking him with his namesake Thabani Vusa Mpofu, who works in President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s office; a dead giveaway” (TheNewsHawks, 27.12.2020).
The Movement for Democratic Change – Tsvangirai (MDC-T) are today holding MDC-T Congress. Which they have been allowed to do by the Courts. The MDC-T have been a useful tool for the ZANU-PF as a coordinated way of stifling the MDC-Alliance after the last election in the 2nd Republic. The MDC-T two leaders have been served kindly by the state. Today’s Congress was supposed to settle this.
“The MDC-T has made some “special arrangements” with public transporter, ZUPCO to ferry delegates to its extraordinary congress in Harare this Sunday amid reports of some missing party funds” (My Gowke Media, 27.12.2020).
However, what it has showed that you cannot trust crooks. As they are busy rigging and scheming behind the scenes. The two main candidates and the ones in-charge. Douglas Mwonzora and Thokozani Khupe are both using various of tactics to get total control of the party. They are even adding delegates and fighting over supplementary rolls. These two cannot even agree on who is leading the party and who is the deputy.
The skeleton of a party and a tool in the shed of the regime. Is clearly not seeing that they are pawns and thinking they are more vital than they really are. No matter who would win of Mwonzora or Khupe. These are both projects and supported by the regime. They are both eating on the plate of the state and will be meal-ticket politicians.
These two are just being used and their legacy will be thereafter. They might not think like that right now. As their egos and wish to be supreme. No matter if the party isn’t all that and only a pawn in the grand scheme of things. It has served its purpose to weaken the MDC-Alliance. However, these sort of games delivered today. Only shows the bleak reality and that these folks isn’t there to regain power or be a viable opposition.
No, they have just found their day-job and a way to eat. They need the titles and the possibility to rule in a party like that. So that they can answer to the ZANU-PF and the President. Peace.
“‘What other fasting do you want Mr Mnangagwa? Zimbabweans are fasting already, they are hungry” (…) ”BULAWAYO – A man appeared in court on Tuesday accused of “insulting the president” after posting a video WhatsApp status of a woman criticising a call by President Emmerson Mnangagwa to “pray and fast” for divine intervention against the coronavirus in June” (Sipho Mabuza – ‘Man in court over WhatsApp status blasting Mnangagwa call for fasting’ 13.10.2020, Zimlive.com).
The New Dispensation was just a charade, a false promise, dammit, it was even false hope. The Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) and Second Republic is the regime of the henchmen of Mugabe. The henchmen who was vindicated by the overthrow of Mugabe, but coming with brutal force against his own.
President Emmerson Mnangagwa shows why he never shown any remorse for the Gukurahundi genocide in 1980s. The man who was in the forefront of that and delivering retribution on behalf of the state. Now, his in-charge and showing the same mentality. Using force, being a tyrant and going against the ones who stands in his way.
Mnangagwa cannot even stomach a quote, a citation or a blunt comment on social media. That is how small of man he is. That he cannot bare the content on social media. This is why he has arrested a man for mocking him online.
A President and his cronies should manage some mocking, jokes and criticism. However, there is proof that plenty of leaders are shallow and beneath their office. They cannot manage words or arguments against them. That is why they arrest dissidents and the ones exposing them. Something, the ZANU-PF have done to journalists and activists.
The arrest over a WhatsApp status shows how little of a man Mnangagwa is. His the man of Command Agriculture, Command Health Care and Command Fasting. He might not say it, but that is the truth. He wants to steam-roll and wants to be the honoured commander-in-chief. The President wants to be respected and glorified. However, there is no proof that his worthy of that.
Instead, his a man of military precision and expect people to be behind him. They are supposed to follow his orders and be praising his noble kind. Nevertheless, with his track-record and what he has delivered. There isn’t much to sing psalms about, neither to write a haiku about either. Only sentences of mocking and ask for a divine intervention from this wholly that is bestowed on the public.
President Mnangagwa should care that the currency reforms are fucked. That the inflation is infamous and that the salaries is in a deep incapacitation of civil servants. This is what he has delivered in combination with lack of freedom, liberty and association with dissidents. The state is going after them and using forceful means to silence its opponents.
Mnangagwa is going as far as arresting and charging a man over a WhatsApp status. The President must be proud of his work. He can be jolly and eat in a feast. While he lets the peasants starve. This is why his eating and they are getting scraps.
How dare they mock him, when they should praise him. They should be singing songs of wonders, of his beauty and of his greatness. Alas, that would only happen, if he actually did something and was sincere. Nevertheless, that isn’t the kind of man Mnangagwa is. It is easier to arrest people, than to actually develop society and make a difference. Peace.
