As 2018 general elections loom, Zanu PF has started preparations for the elections campaign as evidenced by Mnangagwa regalia fabric pictured below. This follows his endorsement by Zanu PF party members as their presidential candidate.
The MDC-T has once again exposed its puppet nature and lack of direction in sending its leadership to the United States of America to lobby for electoral reforms in Zimbabwe when other political parties like Zanu-PF are on the ground oiling their electoral machines for a landslide victory come 2018, political analysts have said. MDC-T vice president Mr Nelson Chamisa yesterday posted on his Twitter account: “In the US – I’m with bro& Cde Biti on a vital global advocacy and diplomatic outreach. Our meetings are high level with the State Department, Congress, global business and US civil society. Our focus is repositioning opposition & global coalition for free and fair elections in 2018.”
Norton legislator Mr Temba Mliswa said by flying to the US at a time Zimbabweans are enjoying a new political dispensation under the leadership of Cde Emmerson Mnangagwa, which is promising a positive turn for the nation, the MDC-T had proven it is not good for Zimbabwe.
“They are not for the good of Zimbabweans. They are for themselves. They have not talked to the current President yet they rush to engage America. They must understand that we are a sovereign nation and so is America. They did not even engage Sadc or the AU. They have made Sadc and the AU useless. They are totally not pan-Africanists. The West is looking for partners and not puppets. It is sad,” said Mr Mliswa.
“This shows that the sanctions that the people of Zimbabwe suffered are at their hands. It is pretty clear. They advocated sanctions so that we suffer. I am disappointed with a young man like Chamisa who seems to be part of that. These are male chauvinists hungry for power. Some of them cannot even win a ward let alone a constituency. Who are they representing in America? Trump must remember that these are the same people who were supporting Hillary Clinton and are now jumping ship. Their DNA is certainly not Zimbabwean.” Tanzania-based political analysts Mr Tafadzwa Mugwadi said the MDC was exposing itself as a Trojan horse of imperialists, said Mr Mliswa
