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
