Zanu PF election losers spoil for blood

HARARE - Zanu Ndeyeropa (Zanu PF is for blood) is an old song but one that reveals the true vampire character of this dying party.

The past two weeks have exposed the panic and contradictions in the Zanu PF psyche.

On one hand, they seem to revel in the comfort of two misleading surveys that said support for the MDC and its leader Morgan Tsvangirai was dwindling while on the other, they talk of the prospects of a coup if Tsvangirai wins the next election.

Zanu PF must simply stick to one position; either Tsvangirai and the MDC are finished; or they adjust to the reality that Tsvangirai remains a portent threat to their ailing candidate to the extent he can only be stopped by gun-toting party apparatchiks masquerading as a people’s army!

The coup scenario is curiously coming from people who have not known how to win an election for a long time.

One of them is Patrick Chinamasa, supposedly a lawyer, a minister of Justice and a negotiator who appended his signature to the need for security sector reform.

Chinamasa has not won an election in a long time. He is currently  in office at the benevolence of the Dear Leader before to whom he wept like a child after he faced imminent dismissal following the botched coup in Dinyane.

For one who is in office without the privilege of having won an election, he is a stranger to  issues like respecting the people’s mandate.

The other loony is one Rugare Gumbo, himself a former Zanu PF dissident who did not even get to enjoy a clash with an MDC candidate in Mberengwa. This is because the Politburo member and party spokesperson was heavily clobbered by political upstart Makhosini Hlongwane in one of the biggest upsets in the Zanu PF primaries.

That was before Zanu PF itself was collectively shellacked by Tsvangirai’s MDC in the 2008 poll.

So we have two looneys who know no value of being elected making fools of themselves on international television!

As I have said before, one simply needs to look at the results, which are public, look at the voting pattern in all those cantonment areas. Just take a look at how Tsvangirai fared at the polling stations at Morris Depot, Inkomo Barracks, Thornhill Airbase, etc to see the electoral preferences of our soldiers and other members of the security forces.

If anyone dares to instigate a coup to topple a constitutionally- elected leadership in the aftermath of Mugabe’s imminent defeat in the next election, they might not even make it home that night!

I rest my case. Shut up, Jonathan I have no time for serial political harlots, but one Jonathan Moyo who has this penchant for singing for his breakfast, lunch and supper should simply shut up.

In his usual snaky and boring articles in The Sunday Mail, Moyo sought to portray a flip-flopping Tsvangirai who continuously changes goalposts on when the next election will be.

In Moyo’s own words, Tsvangirai has this “penchant display of opposing what he supports.”

Zimbabweans know only too well who has this disease; today he is Zanu PF, tomorrow he is not.

We can equally dig up past articles and quotations which will make any reader doubt his sanity.

It is Moyo himself, a man of loose political morals, who has persistently opened his zip to be laid by various political organisations that he has met on the political highway.

Zanu PF has in fact laid him twice now!!

So please, close your zip, shut up and enjoy your hunt for the UZ’s vicechancellorship!!

When Zanu PF speaks like the MDC.

The Bull Eland has a pending case of defamation against the ZBC.

This week, Paul Munyaradzi Mangwana, the  Zanu PF Copac co-chair, got a taste of what we have been enduring all these years after ZBC panellists likened him to Morris Nyathi, the legendary sell-out who caused the death of thousands of Zimbabweans in Mozambique during the liberation struggle.

He is now suing the discredited broadcaster for $1 million.

“The ZBC should know that it cannot abuse its monopoly by attacking individuals without their right to respond. They have been doing that for a long time but I kept quiet.

This time I will fight and set a precedent so that they will not continue abusing politicians,” Munyaradzi Mangwana said yesterday.

Sounds like Tsvangirai speaking, heh?

Welcome to the world of the vilified, Comrade Mangwana!! - Bull Eland
