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 More Political bigotry and not ethnic diversity the problem
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… Read More Tsvangirai: The curse of an unchanging dictator trying to lead change
For all his popularity, Morgan Tsvingirai is not a lesser dictator!

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… Read More Tsvangirai’s media fans maybe doing him a disservice
In 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.

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.
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… Read More MDC-T leadership renewal
