Tendai Biti must be serious

EDITOR — The recent announcement by former Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) secretary-general, Tendai Biti to protest against the ruling party Zanu PF claiming that the party should resign is of no significance but just a mere drop of water in the ocean.

I laughed when I read an article where Biti was begging for dialogue with Zanu PF.

What conversation do you want to engage in with the ruling party Biti? You should stop dreaming of an inclusive government.

I understand that there are many squabbles in your party that need more of your attention than wasting your time concentrating on another party.

The Bible makes it clear in Matthew 7 verse 3 that one should first solve his own problems before pointing at a neighbour’s problem.

The verse reads; “Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?”

Zanu PF has been there long before renewal team and it is still surviving. The MDC has had many splits since its formation.

Currently, it is noted that the renewal team is having party challenges to elect their leadership.

Recent reports state that the party was supposed to have its first joint congress in March this year, but they have shifted the dates to August, since the battle for positions is still on.

Biti should be quite aware that when Morgan Tsvangirai, MDC leader, once called for demonstrations last year, nothing came to pass.

The same, Biti, silenced Tsvangirai declaring that mass protests would not take the country anywhere, and that is the truth; mass demonstrations will not solve any problem.

The problems bedevilling our nation will only be solved by us Zimbabweans.

So my question to Biti still stands, is there any important difference between the mass protests that Tsvangirai called for last year and the ones you are talking about?

Instead, you should go back to the drawing board and come up with alternative strategies that can assist in the full implementation of ZimAsset.

Biti should be advised that time for demonstrations is over; it’s now time for nation building.

Zimbabweans must resist being fooled by divisive-minded politicians.

This article is in itself wastage of time and space.What has been said in this article so far that is intelligent except the very myopic view that Renewal is divisive? I wonder when shall Zimbabweans, especially those who get angry on behalf of Tsvangirai begin to smell the coffee .Renewal is the solution and the sooner this sinks in your crazy heads the better for Zimbabwe and for you

Ndauya chitaurai neni? Ndivanani vanoti Renewal team yakanaka?Who is the President of Renewal team?Yaka spliter kubva kuMDC last year and they haven't select their leader.They view Tsvangirai party as rotten.But they still want to cling into the Parliament under the rotten party ticket.There is a by-election why are they not confident enough that indeed retain those seats in their own name UMDC ?Why are they more keen on Tsvangirai supporters more than all Zimbabweans including Zanu PF supporters? Maonere angu hapana chiri Renewal pana Mangoma naBiti.Hapana zvachose.Biti wekutuka paradio uyo anoziva chii?Ndomaleader enyu.Maleader ane double standards.Moti Zanu PF iri corrupt Gedeon Gono a Zanu PF and a governor was alleged to have committed a corrupt act by his fellow Zanu PF who happen to be his former adviser.Biti of all people agreed to defend Gono in court.So dear Biti you fight corruption and all rot by restoring it? Waste of time indeed to join Renewal team kutamba nekuva kuvidza zuva chaiko hapana chinobuda.
