Msipa delu­sional

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

ED­I­TOR — Former Zanu-PF Polit­buro mem­ber and Mid­lands Gover­nor Cephas Msipa is hal­lu­ci­nat­ing and liv­ing in a world of delu­sion.

Msipa al­leges that Zanu-PF will not re­form it­self un­less out of power. He is say­ing this to try and se­cure a po­si­tion within the pro­posed coali­tion fronted by Mu­juru and Ts­van­gi­rai.

Msipa is a so­cial mis­fit! That is the rea­son why he has failed to build and con­sol­i­date a fol­low­ing with the elec­torate af­ter leav­ing Zanu-PF. He is viewed as some­one who is power hun­gry, my­opic and lack­ing in the na­tional vi­sion.

It is mis­lead­ing for Msipa to al­lege that elec­tions in Zim­babwe have been mil­i­tarised.

Some­body please tell him that the mil­i­tary is not in­volved in elec­tions but that there is an in­de­pen­dent body known as the Zim­babwe Elec­toral Com­mis­sion (ZEC) that ad­min­is­ters the polls. Msipa should not take us for a ride.

This shows the man has run out of ideas and is des­per­ately seek­ing po­lit­i­cal rel­e­vance. It is a known fact that Zim­babwe has been ful­fill­ing one of the tenets of democ­racy; that is hold­ing elec­tions at pre­scribed in­ter­vals.

Th­ese elec­tions have been held un­der free and fair con­di­tions and they have been in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised.

Msipa is a clear and present dan­ger, not only to the na­tion through bla­tant mis­in­for­ma­tion, but to him­self be­cause he has come to be­lieve his warped pro­pa­ganda.

He is sim­ply un­fit to lead a non­de­script party, let alone to govern a coun­try with such a rich his­tory as Zim­babwe.

His per­cep­tion of self as hav­ing lead­er­ship qual­i­ties is as laugh­able and mis­placed as it is piti­fully fright­en­ing.

It is a fact that de­spite him­self, Msipa ex­presses ad­mi­ra­tion and envy for the lead­er­ship qual­i­ties of Pres­i­dent Mu­gabe. His at­tempts at slight­ing Pres­i­dent Mu­gabe’s eco­nomic poli­cies are a ques­tion of sour grapes. Sim­ply put, Msipa is a light­weight on is­sues of eco­nomic im­por­tance. Ste­wart Mre­hwa
