Chinja at State House

HARARE - Prime Minister Morgan  Tsvangirai shouted Chinja to the bemusement of Zanu PF ministers who attended the signing ceremony of the new Constitution.

When the President raised his clenched fist, he asked the PM why he had not joined him, to which the PM said the slogan of the MDC was “Chinja”, which slogan he shouted and waved the open palm.

This is unheard of — an MDC cadre shouting chinja at State House!

It must be a foreboding of things about to come!

And when it was time for the prime minister to speak at the signing ceremony, he said Mugabe must have signed the Lancaster House constitution with a heavy heart.

He added Mugabe must have signed this new Constitution with joy, knowing that he would “go down” a satisfied man.

The Bull Eland is reliably informed one of Mugabe’s top aides wanted to know what the prime minister meant by “go down.”

Let’s leave it there for now!
Zanu PF not ready for elections

As I said last week, Zanu PF is not ready for elections despite the public posturing.

We were told on Thursday that the party is yet to finalise on the guidelines for primary elections and has asked its legal team and the Women’s League to continue to consulting each other following new requirements by the Women’s League.

So there are still no guidelines for Zanu PF’s internal primary elections.

They will have to agree on these guidelines and then set a date for primaries.

And this is a party that says it is ready for a national election in five weeks’ time.

We will still be watching this imminent split in the opposition. I hear there is a proposed special congress that will prop-up one faction at the expense of the other!

And the party has the audacity to say this time there will be no bhora musango!

It is The Bull Eland’s contention that this time there is no need to kick the ball into the forest.

In fact the whole match is being played there (in the forest), anyway. - Bull Eland
