Mugabe is to blame for Zanu PF woes

EDITOR — Zanu PF has been portraying itself as the best party and making fools of opposition parties since 1980.

The current events taking place in the revolutionary party are a sure sign that it is finished and come 2018 election it will be gone for good.

While its leader President Robert Mugabe can be seen as the only thread binding the party together, at least for now, I believe he is more to blame.

His failure to relinquish power timeously has created problems. Imagine just last week given his age, he openly says he is not going anywhere, he is here to stay. For how long?

His desire to remain at the helm of the party has resulted in the past and current impasse that is threatening to tear the party apart for good.

Zanu PF is sitting on a time bomb that can explode at any minute as the party’s stalwarts jostle to take up strategic positions.

The fight has become an open battle, with sides showing where their true allegiance lies. There is no better recipe for the destruction of such a big party.

Members are fighting each other, with accusations and counter accusations reigning supreme in the once strong party.

Everything within the party is now being determined according to faction lines, making it a dangerous situation.

Zanu PF has now been reduced to two parties using the same name, as the discord testifies of power-hungry people, who are not concerned about the general populace.

For the past 37 years, Zanu PF has been in power, the economic situation in the country has been in shambles, and now with the bickering no solutions are forthcoming.

For a party that has been in existence for several decades, one would expect it to be more organised, with proper structures and a clear succession plan on who will take over the reins in the event that Mugabe is incapacitated.

    True Mugabe is too old & Grace has assumed so much free play around the throne to an extent of exercising some of the presidential powers on behalf of husband-which is not only bad but also highly dangerous.If Grace is not stopped this country is a steep descent down into dangerous chaos.The country is running headlong into chaos. I am urging all zanu pf supporters, not to make fools of themselves,but to engage into another bhora musango to avert the impending Grace disaster.They should make all their MPs,councilors,mayors etc win the elections but Grace & husband no.no.Allow them space to retire.They are not the only ones
