Zanu-PF shouldn’t be bothered by coalition
EDITOR — News of Mrs Joice Mujuru and Mr Morgan Tsvangirai’s public show of political romance took priority space in private and foreign funded media.
They tried to propel the event to relevance, with some even suggesting the union marked the end of Zanu PF’s political reign, the worst joke ever told.
That event was confirmation of all the prior suggestions that Mrs Mujuru had been working with the opposition and regime change agents from the days she was part of the Government.
If those who itch for regime change had placed their bets on the so-called coalition to dispose of the current government then they should go and claim their money back.
A coalition between a confused trade unionist and a disgruntled insubordinate will not bear any fruit even in the wildest form of irrational imagination.
Tsvangirai is already sitting on a time bomb with the party presidium mess he created by unconstitutionally elevating Mr Elias Mudzuri and Nelson Chamisa to the presidency.
Even if he enters into a coalition with another party, a dispute will remain an event-inwaiting.
Also, clueless as they are, their solidarity will be nothing short of a circus. People who haven’t said anything more substantial than criticising the current Government will only stammer and wallow when it’s time to lay policies on the ground for the electorate to choose.
Local voters are unforgiving of ‘rhetoricians’ who do not present sound policies. The 2013 harmonised elections were indisputable evidence as Mr Tsvangirai and the opposition were humbled by the policy laden Zanu-PF manifesto.
As we approach election season, Zanu-PF supporters should not be fazed by these coalitions of confused political failures who do not have visible structures at grassroots level.
The people’s party should remind the opposition that holding a rally and taking carefully framed images to forge numbers is different from getting people to vote for them. Benard Mazuruke
