ZANU PF has a huge advantage over the forthcoming harmonised elections , with huge billboards and banners of President Emmerson Mnangagwa on buildings, in streets of towns and cities across the country, imported hundreds of new vehicles for the campaign from a reported US$200 million war chest along with receiving US$6m from Zimbabwe’s treasury in April 2018 this year under the country’s political parties finance legislation.
The MDC Alliance spokesperson Prof Welshman Ncube while speaking at Silobela , said the Zimbabwe’s deep economic crisis goes beyond the removal of deposed former President Robert Mugabe from power and replacing him with president Emmerson Mnangagwa, whereas the election must aim at totally dismantling the Zanu-PF system which kept Mugabe in power at , it is still intact.
Welshman Ncube said, “We marched and removed Mugabe from power last year. Mugabe left but the system which kept Mugabe in power for that long is still in-tact,” .
“The system of rampant corruption, misrule and repression is still and very much intact.”
According to the MDC leader Welshman Ncube, the way forward Ncube said is to dismantle the whole Zanu pf system through the ballot.
Ncube confident delved into the most controversial political topic in Zimbabwe, that of Chamisa grabbing power and edging out Khuphe, when he went on to say, to Zimbabwean’s “You have to be wary of Khupe. She is only there to muddy the waters and split the MDC vote. We can defend that vote by voting for Chamisa,” he said.
WWW.NEWZIMBABWEVISION.COM, says that, it is impractical in the history of this world to remove a military regime through the ballot. The point is that a bullet is always mightier than the pen to these people, and twice since the sixties they liberated Zimbabwe, forstly through the liberation struggle for independance from the White ian Smith Rhodesian regime ending in 1979, which launched Mugabe into 37 years of rule till Mnangagwa removed him with the military in November 2017.Clearly the military, believe they own Zimbabwe and they are there to defend the legacy of black freedom, black empowerment, indepenadance and all that comes along with it. It is in a sense , understandable that they will never view opposition, particularly Chamisa and other foreign funded opposition as true liberators, hence deep down inside, they are prepared to lead Zimbabwe to war than hand over power to Chamisa.
The only way forward is for leading opposition like Chamisa, to call for a round table talk with the military and assure them that there will not be any reversal of gains of the liberation struggle and what Mugabe gave to the ordinary Zimbabwean such as freedom from white settler rule, black empowerment, economic empowerment, land to the indigenous black people of Zimbabwe along with businesses, assure the army that their farms, houses, businesses and past crimes against humanity, are a closed chapter, although it must be clear that those who possess multiple farms including Mugabe, must give them back to government, for redistribution to those in need on the waiting list for land.
Nothing short of such assurances, can help lead to the military stepping down, even though we know, they will want a share of the futiure of Zimbabwe, by having some power such as being the voice of elders in parliament…Wake up Zimbabwe, do you really think, Mnangagwa and Chiwenga will walk away from being president and Vice president, and the military walk away from the riches in Zimbabwe including land and minerals,..really? No ballot will ever remove a military! More news to follow. By Sibusiso Ngwenya
