Political bigotry and not ethnic diversity the problem

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.

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 toContinue reading “Tsvangirai: The curse of an unchanging dictator trying to lead change”

Zimbabwe’s political future is bigger than any one man

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. HeContinue reading “Zimbabwe’s political future is bigger than any one man”

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 actedContinue reading “Tsvangirai’s media fans maybe doing him a disservice”

Biased media helping suppress any hope for democracy in Zimbabwe

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. 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 leastContinue reading “Biased media helping suppress any hope for democracy in Zimbabwe”

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 partyContinue reading “MDC-T leadership renewal”

Morgan Tsvangirai’s ‘God-chosen’ clanger

Tsvangirai has just pulled yet another rabbit out of the hat in his now openly desperate pursuit for presidency, this time telling a church congregation that he and Mugabe were chosen by God to lead Zimbabwe and requesting that Zimbabweans pray for them!  How has Tsvangirai arrived at the conclusion that he and his presidentContinue reading “Morgan Tsvangirai’s ‘God-chosen’ clanger”

Tsvangirai mustn’t be allowed an easy political ride

I do not know whether to say I have enjoyed the media coverage on Tsvangirai’s latest socio-political judgement (or misjudgement, to capture the right context) or I have been disappointed by the behaviour of a man seen by many in his party as the next president of the Republic of Zimbabwe. The catalogue of errors has rangedContinue reading “Tsvangirai mustn’t be allowed an easy political ride”
