Tsvangiari should wake up

EDITOR — The just-ended Zimbabwean elections have produced a wrong leader for Zimbabwe in President Robert Mugabe but have also taught Zimbabweans several lessons.

Zimbabweans exposed themselves by voting for Mugabe who has been in power for over 30 years.

The biggest blunder that we made as Zimbabweans is to be persuaded by party regalia and one day food forgetting that Mugabe’s empowerment programmes are for top Zanu PF leaders only and not for the ordinary people.

Under Mugabe, the country’s wealth is always distributed along partisan lines.

Zimbabweans are also tired of Morgan Tsvangirai who is just like Robert Mugabe when it comes to bad leadership.

In my view the MDC project has dismally failed.

Tsvangirai is politically dead and has very slim chances of rising again except to make a living through political noise.

He made a mistake by giving the organising portfolio to Nelson Chamisa who took all the seats that were won by Elias Mudzuri back to Zanu PF. People like Pearson Mbalekwa should rise again and try to defend Chamisa as they did during the build up to the controversial elections.

Chamisa is too junior and a political suspect in the MDC.

Some of the people around Tsvangirai have worked day and night to destroy him.

The only person with the chance to rise is Professor Welshman Ncube whose political leadership skills cannot be doudted by any level-headed politician.

I want to believe that the team around Welshman Ncube has what it takes to turn the tables and some of us will continue to support him for several reasons not the lies about him that has been peddled by the  mainstream MDC and Zanu PF.

I don’t think Ncube should think of any coalition with Tsvangirai now or in the near future.

Ncube has good chances of rising than Tsvangirai.

It is time that we think independently and constructively and start choosing leaders on the basis of their ability to effectively lead Zimbabwe not on the basis of origin, tribe or dressing.

I was surprised to hear that Joseph Chinotimba was voted into Parliament and honestly speaking the people of Buhera should not expect anything from him.

For an MDC Ncube celebrating supporter to offer advice to MDCT, an adversary smacks of misplaced arrogance and wholesale mercenary bent. Yes, Tsvangirayi might have failed to dislodge the ruling party but surely he can not be by any stretch of imagination be compared to Ncube who came out with 2% of the vote. It is quite clear to all but those who are either steeped to deep in tribal politics to see that the Ncube project failed and failed HARD. The only saving grace of this contribution above is the fact that young Chamisa, though having his heart in the right place did not command the necessary traction with the grassroot as Mudzuri before him had done. I think the fault lies squarely on the MDC leadership for kicking him up the stairs so hard and high..he needed time to be nurtured into this post. MDC lost a young and dynamic cadre in the name of Learnmore Majongwe when the party had given too large boots to wear, why repeat the same mistake. Having said this I think it would be a wise move to allow President Tsvangirayi to take a less demanding role ..I suggest letting Khupe take over deputised by either Mudzuri or Matinenga and move Biti to Mwonzora's place. They could also move the organising portfolio to somebody who has the respect across the three wings of the party..I believe Moyo (former speaker can do this) and then get Mangoma, a chartered accountant as Secretary General with Tsvangirayi as party chairman..now how does this look?

I am not surprised that Chinotimba has been voted into Parliament. That just goes to prove the educational qualifications needed to become a minister in zpf. No wonder the country is fu*#ed with fools like that running it.
