Unity without direction doomed
EDITOR – Lack of a nationalist and people-oriented vision has cost the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) dearly.
The party has simply become the radar-less ship adrift the high seas of political denial. Mr Morgan Tsvangirai has been thrown into confusion after failing dismally in the 2013 July elections.
The party and its supporters are now in a crisis of expectation.
Tsvangirai does not even realise that the country is under sanctions. All people in this country agree that there is a crisis in the economy leading to a serious liquidity crunch while revenue collections have drastically dwindled.
The MDC leader is the one who boldly campaigned and invited his Western handlers to impose sanctions.
The sanctions are hurting everyone in this country whether you are Zanu-PF or MDC. We should desist from inviting foreigners to solve our problems as the westerners do not invite us to solve theirs. So, Mr Tsvangirai, when you invited sanctions was it your wisdom or lack thereof?
As prime minister in the Government of National Unity (GNU), the man was overwhelmed with the little power given to him by President Mugabe and forgot that he was given the mandate by the people to implement government policies.
Right now the original MDC is no more and the splinters cannot be reconciled.
It is clear that Mr Tsvangirai is very thin on political strategy and political judgment. His limited educational background has been used as cannon fodder by his opponents to question his leadership credentials.
The coming aboard of Joice Mujuru’s Zimbabwe People First will only make matters worse as both leaders are power-hungry.
Tendai Biti of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) seems to be a political novice who has not graduated from Great Hall politics. A grand coalition will remain a tall order. Steward Murewa, Via email.
