We need a new leader

EDITOR — In my view Tendai Biti is too weak to challenge Morgan Tsvangirai.

Promise Mkwananzi and Elton Mangoma are undisputed democrats who should be applauded for their bold stance on Tsvangirai.

The future of the MDC does not lie in the hands of people like Biti, Nelson Chamisa or Ian Makone but in fair minded leaders like Mangoma and youth secretary general Promise Mkwananzi.

What is the real truth for now is that Tsvangirai has collapsed and only those believing that a rock can produce water will continue to support him.

Tsvangirai is not a brand that is worth funding or to expect to win future elections considering all the scandals he was involved in with women during the last elections.

Tsvangirai is likely to be left with the smallest party since those calling for his ouster are powerful individuals.

Roy Bennett and Ian Kay are key members of the party that deserve respect rather than abuse.

History should judge Tsvangirai for now and those with eyes to see and brains will understand why powerful founder members of the party like Welshman Ncube, Gibson Sibanda, Renson Gasela and others dumped him.

Ncube is one leader with undisputable capacity to lead Zimbabwe and change any game plan in order to produce results.

I read that he has now produced a comprehensive road map to win the 2018 presidential and parliamentary elections.

Tsvangirai has turned the MDC into his personal village political party.

Gugugu Magorira,

I will not be voting for either of the two main political parties if the current leaders are still in office. Zimbabwe needs new blood as both parties have run out of gas. Surely we have a Martin Luther King amongst us somewhere.

It is clear that the writer has little if any story here. Tsvangirai is the onlt brand worth selling in Zimbabwe's political arena, the only who has a truly people's support base and ZANU PF knowns that since Mugabe is on his way out, anyone who is only Tsvangirai would be preferred in another election because it is a sure thing that they would not win if he, Tsvangirai is still the leader of MDC. Who amongst the leaders that the writer supports, is strong enough to command the trust and respect of Zimbabweans other than Tsvangirai? Let alone win an election against ZANU PF. We all know for a fact that MDC 's Tsvangirai has not lost the past elections, that's a fact that the writer chooses to ignore. All the past elections were stolen from him. The Mangoma's were the negotiator's in the negotiations on behalf of MDC, what did they come up with? Don't fool Zimbabweans, if there is a need to change leadership, look at ZANU PF and advise them, we in the MDC do not require such stupid stories by stupid writers like Gugugu, utter stupidity and rubbish. The writer is trying to make people get rid of a true leader so the competition against ZANU PF lessens

Form your own party Mangoma and see if you can even get one vote?

Harris - 3 March 2014

Tsvangirayi must be the first(only) african leader to lose votes due to womanising...I did not vote for him in July 2013 for that reason....So it cost him my vote(at least). The fact that Mangoma questioned Tsvangirayi's leadership does not mean he wants to be President... I don't understand Mangoma's critics....Are we saying Tsvangirayi's leadership should not be questioned?????????????

Vanhuwe wake up. Tsvangirai is finished sehondo yemuseve. Hanging on to Tsvangirai is like being on a sinking ship....
