MDC prepares sucker punch for Zanu PF

HARARE - The Morgan Tsvangirai-led MDC’s planned nationwide demonstrations will provide a sucker punch that will end President Robert Mugabe’s misrule, the opposition party spokesperson Obert Gutu said.

After shaking Zanu PF from its slumber with a peaceful demonstration last week, Gutu said the planned series of rallies in each province will culminate in a “grandmaster of all demonstrations” that will force the governing party to call for early elections.

“The ‘mother of all demonstrations’ that was held on April 14 was just an appetiser, a teaser so to speak. That demo clearly showed that the MDC is the real deal, the only game in town.

“Zimbabweans are sick and tired of the Zanu PF regime’s unmitigated and rampant corruption and misrule. We are going to spread the demos to all provinces soon.

“Everything is being planned methodically and strategically. Before the Zanu PF regime gets to know what, exactly, is happening, Zimbabwe will witness the ‘grand master of all demonstrations’ to be staged by the MDC. Just watch this space.”

With Zanu PF apparently failing to solve the country’s myriad of challenges Gutu claimed that solutions can only come from the opposition.

“We are not going to fail the toiling masses of Zimbabwe.  We are ready, willing and capable of governing Zimbabwe to make the country get out of the prevailing socio-economic mess.

“Unlike the crumbling Zanu PF regime, the MDC is going to lead and not to rule the country. We are social democrats who are adequately equipped with the requisite technical and intellectual gravitas to take Zimbabwe to the next level.

“It is against this background that we are planning the ultimate sucker punch; the knock-out punch that we have aptly dubbed the grand master of all demonstrations.”

In dramatic fashion, Gutu said due to the current economic woes, Mugabe’s exit is now imminent and the MDC is ready to take over.

“Fasten your seat belts, relax and just wait for the moment when the MDC is going to re-define Zimbabwe’s political landscape. There’s no going back. There’s neither fear nor surrender. Defeat is not on the agenda,” added Gutu.

The MDC is protesting against a number of issues, including Zanu PF’s failure to fulfil its promise to create 2, 2 million jobs as espoused in the ruling party’s 2013 election manifesto, as well as demand answers following Mugabe’s recent claim that $15 billion had been stolen from the Chiadzwa diamond mining fields.

You guys are in are always brushing shoulders with these Zanu pf guys,drinking and eating together.Corruption has now reached alarming levels in government and outside government.We are sick and tired of you guys.We need a very strong opposition political party here in Zimbabwe.Look what is happening in South Sudan.A real unity government of national unity is about to be born out of a two year brutal struggle,thats real opposition,meaningful.You are now taking people for a real ride you MDC.The people needs your leadership in everything in order to dislodge the despotic regime.The people have voted for you so many times and you won severals times, but you were clueless on how you are supposed to claim your victory.Useless!Do you think you are going to get power on a silver platter?Right now the government has resorted to stealing from the masses by merely using police uniform together with dirty pieces of paper called statutory instruments on the public roads, in order to extorte money from poor motorists.This is happening day in day out, and you are watching.There is not even a single day you have come out strongly inside or outside Parliament to condemn this.We want serious people.Zanu pf worked tireless to dislodge the white minority rule and at the end of the day it worked well for them.Now its your turn.
