Opinion: Tendai Biti is another casualty of the reign of Mnangagwa!

If your where thinking there was coming a new Zimbabwe in November 2017, you where wrong, we’re all wrong. The goblin, Robert Mugabe might not be in office in his advanced age, but his henchmen and his military leadership is there. Therefore, the ZANU-PF isn’t acting better. They are even more retaliating heavier against the opposition.

The latest casualty is Movement for Democratic Change – Alliance (MDC-A) own Tendai Biti, who has been a vocal critic of the regime. He was last year because of the Post-Election Violence. As he tried to flee to Zambia for asylum, the authorities retrieved him and deported him back to Zimbabwe. They “assisted” him back for investigation into the Post-Election Violence, that rocked the capital on the 1st August 2018.

However, what has happen today is an extension of the actions of the authorities last year. They are continuing to pursuit unhappiness for the opposition leader.

Which said this on the 31st August 2018 after the polls:

The results show beyond reasonable doubt that we have won this election and that the next President of Zimbabwe is Advocate Nelson Chamisa. These results were extrapolated from V11 forms that in some cases were posted outside posted outside polling stations in compliance with the law and in some cases handed over to our candidates’ agents in compliance with the law. We now hope that the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) will follow its Constitutional and legal obligation defined in the Electoral Act of formally announcing the result that is consistent with what we have gathered through our own parallel voter tabulation process. As you know we set up command centres in every constituency…” (Xaxa – ‘Nelson Chamisa Has Won Election And Must Be Sworn In: Biti’ 31.08.2018, link: https://news.pindula.co.zw/2018/07/31/nelson-chamisa-has-won-election-and-must-be-sworn-in-biti/).

Because, the Opposition leader said this at the Press Conference on the 31st August 2018 at the Morgan Tsvangirai House in Harare. He has gotten into legal jeopardy, as his words are used against him. As the challenge of the election and the polls are contended. Since, the state and regime is going after him for saying it. It touched a nerve, as they are taking way his rights to say or announce results, which is not done by ZEC. That is what the state says today to all citizens.

Today, the Harare Magistrate Gloria Takundwa charged him on two counts, where the lawyer broke the Electoral Law. As he today either had to pay $200 or spend a week in jail. So, he was found guilty of crimes. The Second count, which is yet not fixed is where he could spend 6 months in jail.

This is all because he said Chamisa won, instead of Emmerson Mnangagwa, a President incumbent who also said this on the 31st August 2018: “Good morning Zimbabwe, I am delighted by the high turnout and citizen engagement so far. The information from our reps on the ground is extremely positive! Waiting patiently for official results as per constitution” (Takunda Shumba – ‘ED Mnangagwa claims victory? Chamisa warned elections could be reversed, rigged’ 31.08.2018, link: https://zwnews.com/ed-mnangagwa-claims-victory-chamisa-warned-elections-could-be-reversed-rigged/ ).

So, we can see that Mnangagwa was allowed and got into no issues proclaiming victory. He came with an online video on the same day as Tendai Biti said his peace at a Press Conference. This again, shows he different use of law and how it always sticks directly to the MDC-A, but ZANU-PF gets off the hook.

Well, we know that this regime is a type that retaliates and is vicious. That the ZANU-PF has shown, again and again. This is just another one, who is picked out and shown as political target by the regime. Because, the state are not initiating anything against the President or even a warning for his words about this, but Tendai Biti is fair game. Peace.

Opinion: Nduna MP, there is no honour among thieves…

“Don’t call me a thief, I am saying this for the last time, don’t call me a thief, I have people who I killed who I don’t even know,”Dexter Nduna MP

I don’t know if Dexter Nduna, the Chegutu MP, the Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) noble and representative said in Parliament, as there was a heated discussion on Monday, the 11th of February 2019.

What is striking how easy it was for the man to say this, that he had killed. That he says he is responsible to taken lives, that he doesn’t even know. That means subjectively, that there are plenty of people, which he have killed without people knowing. Also, that he has gotten away with it too.

Also, should be said, is that MP in question is known for using violence as an election tactic. Meaning, he has fired shots during primary elections and sponsoring it for his cause, himself. Therefore, him saying he has killed someone or somebody. Might, even be an understatement, because who knows what he did during the election campaigns in 2008 and 2013. To be elected and get in office.

Therefore, who knows what he has done and sponsored on his road, in elections and in Chegutu constituency, as he boosted so strongly about on Monday. We can clearly, see and state, that there is more to follow and there should be an investigation.

Because, the man, has a problem with thieving, but not issues with murder. Nduna has at least not pulled off the perfect crime, because he cannot keep it tight. His lips are far from sealed, when he get into an intense argument. However, these words shows to what extent, that he does to get in power. To what extent he will go, to get his way.

It is chilling and cold-blooded. Just like when the President is deflecting and saying, he needs evidence for the sinister acts during the shutdown this year. We can see a party, who promotes and who has no scruples. They are a den of thieves, crooks and killers, who are congregating in the halls of power. Instead of sealed of cells and in secrecy.

What is clear, even as vicious and vindictive the man is, he is not the brightest. Because, these words that was said, was recorded and went viral. They opens up a can of worms and he to answer for those. We knows, that ZANU-PF shields their own, but for how long, when someone as toxic as this hangs around. Peace.

Opinion: Mnangagwa’s France24 Interview is spin out of control!

“Regime change is the better word it is a regime change agenda, which is not new …which has been a phenomenon visiting Zimbabwe throughout the last 18 years”Emmerson Mnangagwa, (10.02.2019)

President Emmerson Mnangagwa at France24 TV Interview on the 10th February 2019 is now showing the true capacity, the ability and the spin, that the President is busy doing. That Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) is busy trying to change the narrative is natural. That the President want to spin and control the news is also natural. Still, that doesn’t make his stories true.

That the President, who knows perfectly well, what the army and police has done. A President that did the crackdown on the civil societies, the opposition and civilians as a result of the shutdown. The brutality and atrocities, where the amounts of dead, amounts of people shot, detained and even harassed, the rapes and whatnots has shown the sinister side of the ZANU-PF reign. However, he wants to act like it is cool and dandy, that the men and woman, who fears the authorities, are supposed to post-up at the Police Station and deliver evidence of the brutality and if they don’t. then it doesn’t count. That is initially, what the President said in his interview.

“This is where the army is directly and purposely killing people we would want to see evidence we see all this in social media. But we would want to see evidence where the 17 people were killed. Where were they buried” – Mnangagwa, 10.02.2019

It is like he is saying, the dead isn’t deceased, since it isn’t recorded. The dead, the ones who is buried, he doesn’t have faith in it. Just like he claims the rapes are staged woman who play for the NGOs and the Foreign Media, Social Media to be paraded. That is the Executive, that is the Head of State, that is the man, people are supposed to look up to is saying. The man that is supposed to shelter and secure the rights of these people. Instead the digs their grave, spit on their weak bodies and says he needs proof. That is the sort of President Mnangagwa is.

It is just sickening, how somebody can try to spin these tragedies and these actions against civilians. Certainly, he would not recall or recollect those acts. As he was busy flying in Eastern Europe, before returning home before his scheduled Davos trip. However, it still appeared, the stories and videos have been leaked. The show of aggression in midst of a media blackout, have shown the sinister acts of ZANU-PF. Even if the President tries to overshadow and look smart.

Instead, he looks like a man, who tries to play smart to Foreign Media, but falls flat. As he serves propaganda, dances on the dead bodies and the ones hurt by the crackdown and grins, as if it was nothing to begin with. That is how it look. That is what it seems and it’s beautiful.

No, it’s ugly and despicable. Mnangagwa are maybe able to fool the naïve, the ones who is not bright and the ones who eat the whole Kool-Aid. The ones who is not lost in the PFee will see past this, as we remembered the reports, the videos and the leaked stories. They are not fairy tales, but sad stories of today’s bleak reality. Peace.
