Tsvangirai frustrates MDC-T supporters
EDITOR — The MDC-T party has been gripped again by an act of dictatorship after party leader Morgan Tsvangirai hand-picked Nelson Chamisa and Elias Mudzuri to make them his deputies in addition to Thokozani Khupe.
This development has been challenged by some of the party’s supporters that have taken the matter to the courts.
A large number of MDC-T supporters in Bulawayo have promised to boycott all of Tsvangirai’s rallies in the city and to pull out of MDC-T and join any party that follows its laid down principles.
The majority of supporters allege that they are now fed up with Tsvangirai’s hypocrisy and lack of good leadership skills as the man is always swayed by the wind.
Honestly a true leader should be principled like President Mugabe who has proved over time that he is a man of his word, has clear-cut principles and has a vision. Tsvangirai lacks these qualities and behaves like a buffoon, a man of dubious revolutionary credentials.
That is the reason why the MDC-T has now several offshoots being led by power hungry individuals who have been frustrated by Tsvangirai.
Tsvangirai has failed dismally in leading the party to democracy and many of his supporters are contemplating joining a plethora of other ‘permanent opposition’ parties under the democratic government of President Mugabe whom they envy. A close analysis of the political landscape seems to suggest that the party is heading for doom so long as Tsvangirai remains at the helm.
The lack of democracy in the party has led the faithful cadres to think otherwise and added to apathy and some have rejoined Zanu-PF. Tsvangirai is a Machiavellian character who believes that the end justifies the means. Surely we should move away from medieval history which says in democracy there is a lot of idiocy.
