Zanu-PF shouldn’t be both­ered by coali­tion

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

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
