Tsvangirai is yet to let me down; he is consistently clueless and will confidently display it whenever given the chance as was the case at White City Stadium in Bulawayo recently. His concerns of what he perceives to be a peace threatening culture of ethnic extremism are imaginary at best and a lie at worst. « Read the rest of this entry »


Tsvangirai: The curse of an unchanging dictator trying to lead change

17 May 2015 § Leave a comment

We deny not that ZANU PF rule has been nothing short of a socio-political disaster but so has been the Morgan Tsvangirai’s leadership of the main opposition, the Movement of Democratic Change (MDC-T). Tsvangirai’s leadership has been a monumental disaster, a giant experiment that has spectacularly failed; it is time to put this embarrassment to a halt now. « Read the rest of this entry »

Biased media and democracy deficit

10 May 2014 § Leave a comment

Expecting the media to be apolitical is rather too much to expect from any human being or any human-led institution. Ideally, one would want the media’s role to be that of providing well researched information to the people and allowing the public to make independent and informed judgement. The media should preferably not be telling people what things to see or how to think. « Read the rest of this entry »

Zimbabwe’s political future is bigger than any one man

3 May 2014 § Leave a comment

For all his popularity, Morgan Tsvingirai is not a lesser dictator! For the better part of the last 15 years he has become the face of Zimbabwe’s faltering opposition politics; he has become a political figure portraying himself as a democrat yet wilfully subverting democratic principles and processes for personal gains at every opportunity. He has become a disaster in-waiting; a political figure who requires temporary suspension of reason by the electorate as a necessity to support his policies.

Morgan Tsvangirai, leader of one MDC faction

Morgan Tsvangirai

If there is any conclusion to be drawn from reports, denials and rejection of Morgan Tsvangirai’s potential suspension as MDC-T’s president it is that the MDC-T is a chaotic organisation. The role of the media in canonizing Tsvangirai comes into question too. The independent media’s evasion of responsibility is worrying; the media has not acted as the fair monitor of the performance of political leaders on behalf of the population.

Biased media helping suppress any hope for democracy in Zimbabwe

24 Apr 2014 § Leave a comment

mediaIn the media moral realm where there is scant consensus over what constitutes a proper basis of moral behaviour I will not attempt to dictate moral codes. Media houses are free to report on anything and everything and in any which way they want for as long as ‘agreed’ ethical boundaries are respected. The least we can ask is for the media to respect the consumer of the news.

An incompetent dictatorship doesn’t make a democracy

22 Feb 2014 § Leave a comment

A lie travels halfway the world before the truth has even finished inputting its navigation coordinates. A lie has been told over and over that the MDC-T is a democratic organisation and ZANU PF is the opposite. The truth remains that the two parties are not exactly opposites; they stand on the same side of the turf, utilise identical tactics, use the same ball and aim for exactly the same goal and that goal is to keep power off the public grasp.
