PM forges alliance with MKD, Zanu Ndonga

HARARE - Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai's MDC, Mavambo Kusile Dawn (MKD), and Zanu Ndonga have officially formed a coalition to topple Zanu PF in the upcoming watershed election.

However, the tripartite coalition said they had 22 more days to recruit other parties which are in support of bringing change to Zimbabwe

In a joint press statement yesterday  Tsvangirai, Simba Makoni of MKD and Reketai Semwayo of Zanu Ndonga said the coalition had been necessitated by a shared commitment to end the country’s hardships.

If political developments were not so sad, they would be most comical. Simba Makoni, ex ZANU rep in West Germany, ex minister, ex central committee, ex politburo member teaming up with Tsvangirai!? Lord God save us, what is this country coming to? Has he become so desperate, so frustrated, so disillusioned that any suitor no matter how despicable, has become acceptable. Was he ever really a cadre? The only thing they have in common is a pathological desire for power it can only end in tears for the partnership. Tsvangirai thinks he has got a prime catch but in reality all he has is Zanu-PF's rear-end discharge. I see Simba benefiting more from the engagement, it gives him a platform to hallucinate about getting back into power corridors. In reality he has just prostituted his uninspiring political career for the love of power. No one takes 'street-women' seriously, this will hound him to his grave. Now that this homosexual liason is in the open, questions have to be asked. Is this regionalism? What does this say about the calibre of some of the cadres in positions of leadership in ZANU-PF? Are they all committed to the people's struggle for self determination and empowerment? An introspection and a purge are in order if the revolution is to be safeguarded.

Now the movie is getting more exciting, and its not use to watse time looking at what characters are being hired to climax the movie to a thrilling end. Tsvangirai is right to bring on board any one who is willing to effect regime change. Its high time Zimbos parties adopt the Nkomo (Father Zim)'s spirit of self sacrifice, but unite for the sack of progress. Mapato ose anoda shanduko ngaauye abatane pamwe chete kuti gomo riwe iro ranetsa kuwisira pasi. Its now or never, but the only way to achieve change is to unite all other parties great or small for a stronger coalition. Remember when the freedom fighters went to Lancster House they went as a united front and their was easily achieved thats the spirit I am talking about. Please, lets have all committed parties come together and effect change once and for all. This country is no monarch even the United Kingdom of the Great Britain the Queen has Prime Ministers changed over and over again. 33years is a quite a very long time....my wife is a so called born-free and my 4 children are also so called born-born-frees, can you imagine all these born still under one leader? Lets be serious fellow country men.
