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

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

On why Matabeleland should let go of the Ncube-led MDC and ZAPU

The Zimbabwe African People’s Union (ZAPU) and the Ncube-led Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) are Zimbabwean political parties just like the MDC-T and ZANU PF; that is a fact! The delusion in some Matabeleland quarters has been that ZAPU and the MDC are the closest to Matabeleland interests as Zimbabwean political parties can possibly be. … Continue reading On why Matabeleland should let go of the Ncube-led MDC and ZAPU

Tsvangirai’s media fans maybe doing him a disservice

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 … Continue reading Tsvangirai’s media fans maybe doing him a disservice

MDC-T’s new recruits are a convenient diversion

It is not the biggest but the right crowd that Zimbabweans should be seeking to associate with. The MDC-T is the biggest opposition party but in its current form and the reputation it has built over the last fifteen years, it is just not the right crowd. It is quite surprising that Job Sikhala of MDC-99, Edward … Continue reading MDC-T’s new recruits are a convenient diversion

An incompetent dictatorship doesn’t make a democracy

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 … Continue reading An incompetent dictatorship doesn’t make a democracy

MDC-T leadership renewal

In principle and indeed in practice, I tend to agree with Elton Mangoma’s call for leadership change and in particular his call for Tsvangirai to stand down as the leader of the MDC-T. If the MDC-T is serious about wanting to change Zimbabwe’s politics, it has to look at changing itself first. Undemocratic internal party … Continue reading MDC-T leadership renewal

Time for Tsvangirai to stand down

After 14 years of major strategic mistakes and failures, I firmly believe that Mr Tsvangirai is no longer electable and thus not worth staying with. He has contradicted just about every statement he has made and broken just about every promise he has made. The latest election failure was a predictable tragedy. It is clear … Continue reading Time for Tsvangirai to stand down
