Shall we look for another leader?

EDITOR — There is uncertainty and vexation in the minds of many Zimbabweans since the results of the disputed elections were announced.

Recently, Ralph Black, a foreign policy advisor to Morgan Tsvangirai, pointed out that, with compromised and weak national and regional institutions like the Zimbabwean Election Commission (Zec) and the Southern African Development Community (Sadc), prospects of a vibrant and viable culture of electoral democracy in Zimbabwe are bleak.

It is therefore; clear enough that the long awaited democracy in Zimbabwe has been dealt a massive blow and Tsvangirai and his team have done nothing yet to rescue the Zimbabwean populace.

As if this was not enough, President Robert Mugabe goes on to impose a bloated and uninspiring Cabinet made of recycled, tested ministers who have presided over the collapse of the economy and key State institutions since independence.

Amidst that, the apparent saviour for the past 14 years, Tsvangirai seems to have failed to deliver victory to the people of Zimbabwe.

Though Zimbabweans have been building confidence in Tsvangirai’s capabilities, every progressive Zimbabwean is perplexed by their consequent failure to witness the fulfilment of their expectations.
Worse still by his silence, questions continue to fill their minds.

Where does the struggle go from here? Is Tsvangirai the main actor or shall we begin to look for another?
We long for that reassurance.

But we hope that our faith will not fail on this matter, and we only desire to have it strengthened and confirmed.

Remember, the end matters in as much as the beginning does.

The meaningfulness of Tsvangirai’s way forward will at this time determine if he is who is to come or if we should look for another leader.

Rev S. Mudzanire,

The party is still in the bush fighting for democracy lets be firm, if we are to achieve our goal. It is a process dont be confused by your enemies they are targeting your leader knowing that if he is gone the party is dead. The information iam giving you is from the ground. Povo is against whoever is calling for change of leadership. Whoever is calling for the change of the leadership can form his own party and exercise his or her strength, we are not divided at MDC-T. Forward naTsvangirai anenge asingadi ngaajoine Maduku, Bob, Ncube kana Dabengwa.Members of the executive must know that there relevance is because you are working together as a party, split and you will see that you are of no value.
