I question Mangoma's loyalty

EDITOR — For the past few months I have been reading of Elton Mangoma’s political escapades prompted by his letter calling for MorganTsvangirai’s resignation.

He has defended his actions saying that he is doing what is right for the generations to come, that what Tsvangirai is doing is unconstitutional, that Tsvangirai has failed as a leader and that he is exercising his democratic right in a democratic party MDC.

The actions, decisions and words said by this man who has become a political main actor by calling for Tsvangirai’s resignation has led me to ask myself where exactly his loyalty lies.

Does Mangoma truly have the good of the MDC at heart?

What does he aim to achieve by his political escapades?

A fully-functional family has a father as the head of the family.

The whole family respects and is in obedience to the father.  If a family member has a problem with the father he will either approach the mother or an uncle or an aunt or an elder brother to speak his mind, problems and how he wishes them to be resolved.

In an organisation, there are channels of communication, they are leadership structures in place to take grievances, complaints up the ladder.

These structures are present in the MDC, I wonder why Mangoma didn’t use these structures to say his mind concerning his suggestions for leadership renewal.

Mangoma is acting like a male lion that is looking for a pride.

The male lion will fight off the ruling male of the pride and kill the remaining male cubs to stamp his authority. 

If Mangoma was working for the good of the party he would have used the party structures to air out his views.
