Zimbabwe: Chiwenga says “the Coup” is lasting until the polls are over!

VP Chiwenga says Operation Restore Legacy which started on Nov 17 ends with voting for Emmerson Mnangagwa & his team in Parliament & local authorities on July 30” (The Herald Zimbabwe, 17.06.2018).

Today, Vice President Constantino Chiwenga really proven his democratic will and show that the junta is fired up by the military, who brought down the presidency of Robert Mugabe in November 2017. That the VP is saying this a month ahead of the polls proves the Zimbabwean African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF), real progression is the change of the name of the President, but their action is only the military intervention. This brought in the Presidency of Mnangagwa and Chiwenga is stating, that the military are continuing their efforts until the polls are done.

This means the army is planning to interfere in the elections in favor of the ZANU-PF. Mnangagwa and the Lacoste took over with the blessing of the army. The bloodless coup of November 2017 was to make sure the Mugabe era ended, also the end of the Mugabe Family looting of the Republic. They also did this because the relationship between the army and the Mnangagwa fraction of the ZANU-PF party, as the G-40 wanted Grace Mugabe as their VP and successor of Robert. That was all put down, when the military intervened. Now the VP and former chief of the military are saying the coup will continue until the future is sealed for Mnangagwa.

That Chiwenga claims Operation Restore Legacy are continuing, means that if things doesn’t go as the military favors it. They will intervene and secure the future of the ZANU-PF they needs. This means that if the people want something else, expect the military to intervene in favor of the Mnangagwa presidency.

The Lacoste fraction and the military part of the cabinet. Shows already their position in the new formed government. The importance of the military is really there, when Chiwenga has become the VP. This is all a proof, that the election are made to legitimize Mnangagwa and his new government. The election is there to secure the future and make validate the coup. Therefore, the ZANU-PF just want to continue and not change pattern.

If they wanted to change and wanted real democracy, the ZANU-PF and Chiwenga wouldn’t say that the Operation Restore Legacy are continuing until the polls. Because then the Coup is officially still on to serve the purpose of Lacoste. Not being an official election where the goal is for the people’s real choice, but securing the will of the army.

That is what I understand when Chiwenga says Operation Restore Legacy is on and until the polls is done. That means the people’s will isn’t important. Peace.

Zimbabwe: Statement from ZAPU on Political Cooperation during and after 2018 Elections (15.06.2018)

Opinion: National Patriotic Front (NPF) is not ready to run in the upcoming elections!

I know that this should be surprising to anyone, as the National Patriotic Front (NPF), the G-40 and Robert Mugabe sponsored Opposition Party is far from ready to run in any elections. That is evident with the recent internal squabble and also news of recalling of their Interim President Ambrose Muthinhiri, while now the current president has become Eunice Sandi-Moyo. Jealousy Mawarire the spokesperson cannot flatter the situation or change the circumstances.

The NPF is not ready for this election, they are far from it, when they cannot decide direction. Not that I want a Goblin sponsored party to be associated in an alliance with Nelson Chamisa and the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC). Still, the NPF are not strong or wise enough to pick the road forward to the polls in July 2018. Its only under 2 months to final destination and now they are going in circles, instead of moving forward.

This here is gold-jar for the President Emmerson Mnangagwa, if the MDC are accepting this and plays along for the cash-cow of Mugabe. They are really just being tools for their new found place in the political landscape. ZANU-PF can spoil this and say the MDC is for no change, if they are following and accepting the Goblin supported services. If they even adds Grace Mugabe on the ticket as VP. Than, they are adding here like the late reports of 2017. When Mnangagwa was sent into exile in South Africa and reports was ready for Grace to rise to power. Then, they are back to pre-coup time.

NPF is eating out of this, even if they have internal problems and showing different fractions. This not long after the launch and being registered in the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC). The Party is fresh and not established. Therefore, changing interim President of NPF is a sign of weakness. Not that I am sad about that, because the Goblin shouldn’t be involved in politics, neither Grace. Both of them should retire and be relaxing at the Blue Roof. They have done more than enough and shouldn’t play at this high stakes game.

The MDC should favor themselves away, still they haven’t done so. This is a gold-mine for the ZANU-PF. It is like Mnangagwa got a birthday gift and anniversary present, that no one could foresee.

Clearly, the NPF are possibly comic relief with a twist of a goblin. That is worrying, but the MDC hasn’t shown character, as they could possibly be friends with former enemies. All of that is just weird. The NPF is not ready. Not ready at all, as long as they have inside issues. They should not try to gain votes. The NPF needs to fix the shop before trying to sell a product. Peace.

Opinion: The MDC & Chamisa should distance themselves from the NPF endorsement!

If your sincere, you know that Robert Mugabe is a supposed veteran and also a relic on the blue-roof. He has supported and is still active behind the scenes. That is why he suddenly has created with his fraction a new Political Party called the National Patriotic Front. However, they have now endorsed the Movement for Democratic Change and Nelson Chamisa for President. Do the MDC and Chamisa want this?

Mugabe has been looting and destroying lives for 37 years. Yes, his cadres and close cronies has eaten in these years. But the histories of misery and the rotten state. Should make you vomit and wonder why Mugabe isn’t litigated or on trial. That is why I wonder, why the MDC isn’t reacting to this or distance themselves. They should. They should blaze guns and say: “We don’t need the endorsement of NPF”. Because then they are silently accepting the fate and the place of Mugabe in politics. Even after he stepped down and supposed to be in retirement. Then the long years of fighting him was futile. Since you still needs his kiss of death, even after he was kicked out of office.

The MDC and Chamisa. Step your game up. This is a slip-up, this is worse than anything. This is getting support from the man you celebrated in November 2017 was ended. That his time was over and time for a New Zimbabwe. If you believe in a new Zimbabwe, you cannot be associated with people who are jumping in bed Mugabe. What difference does that do?

Not that President Emmerson Mnangagwa or anyone of the ZANU-PF is any different from Mugabe at this point. But if your supposed to challenge the ruling regime and their ways. You need to be different. Not more of the same. Then there is no difference between the Crocodile and the newcomer Chamisa. You don’t want that. Then it is just a continuation of the 37 years. There will be nothing significantly different. Accept for the name on the billing and the supposed party structure.

Anyone with sense. Would distance themselves from the NPF endorsement. The Mugabe association should be distanced, they should call it out and say they don’t want this cold-coffee. They want the straight brew from someone legit.

Chamisa step-up if you care. No PR Stunt, No big play of words. Just say “Hell No, I don’t want to associated with Mugabe and his new party”. That is not hard, but very important. Peace.

ZHLR: Fresh Clampdown on Dissent as Zim Authorities Charge Man for Undermining Mnangagwa (28.05.2018)

Opinion: Mugabe your are so lucky, so stop complaining!

Mr. Robert Gabriel Mugabe, I know your old and in advanced age, but someone have to learn you how to be silent. You should be silent and not even whistle in public. Your lucky to have your life, have a giant pension and also still keep your wealth. Your extremely lucky that the current administration and the current leadership wasn’t flogging you and taking you to court after the coup d’etat in November 2017.

Your extremely lucky, so reading that your bitching again about your life post-presidency. You better know better. You are living life and lavishly, while the ones who haven’t eaten the 37 years of rule. Are still struggling day to day, there is still problems within the state and its organizations. What you have left behind is dozens of people who don’t know where their family members are, the activists and political opponents you ordered to vanish or get rid off. They are worse off and knows nothing.

You have claimed dozens of lives, while living life of luxury, eating the best of best food, while others are awaiting donations and food relief from foreign sources. The rule of yours has destroyed the economy and even the currency. Still, you have the audacity to complain and bitch to a fellow dictator for life. How dare you?

Your lucky your not in bracelets, that your reign ended without bloodshed and without insecurity. Because you took it all and expected to get away with it all. That you could loot, celebrate and get rid of the ones standing in your way. It is insane that your living in your mansion, have your cars and owns the various estates. While the state is lacking funds and struggles to pay civil servants. When you have over the years stolen millions upon millions dollars. Which could help all the working families within the state and generate better services.

Your are lucky to keep all of that, that your not going to court every single day answering litigation’s and cases of corruptions, kidnappings and violations of human rights, because there are dozens of people who would enjoy seeing your answering for your crimes. Because you hurt so many people’s lives, you ate their plate and enjoyed yourself on others people’s hardship.

Therefore, you should be silent and pray to the almighty God, that the leadership and administration, haven’t touched you and haven’t acted upon at all. They haven’t taken away or even whisked away anything, which you have stolen during the years. You have gotten away with major crimes and not have to answer. You have been in charge of grand corruption and still breathing the free air and not being behind bars.

You are lucky, super lucky that Mnangagwa and the Lacoste didn’t do you harm. They stripped your title and your office, but have kept everything else. You are a bit to lucky, you would deserve a public trial and answer for the ills you have committed to others on your watch. That would have justice, because all the other citizens answer for their bad activity and trespassing of the law. So he should answer for that too.

Your damn lucky your not behind closed doors not seeing or feeling the sun, not hearing the rain or the thunder. But being free at the Blue Roof and enjoying retirement in wealth. Other people wouldn’t get that well off after what you have done and did.

So please. Do yourself a favor. Become silent and enjoy it. Your bitching isn’t doing any good. It is just making more people more eager to retaliate and your don’t want to a prison guards bitch do you?

No, I didn’t think so. Peace.
