You really do not know what you are talking about, do you? So you think staying in a totally dysfunctional GNU, appeasing the dictator at every turn as long as Tsvangirai and his MDC friends keep their place on the feeding trough is the answer! The only people who have gained politically and economically in the last four years are Mugabe and his cronies.
Tsvangirai should have never signed the GPA with Mugabe; he did in the face of a chorus telling him not to, because he saw it as his last chance to taste power. He promised to withdraw from the GNU if it did not work out. As expected, it has been a totally disaster but Tsvangirai has stayed on because he is enjoying the trappings of power.
There are two good reasons Tsvangirai should have left a long time ago:
a) the GNU is not working and
b) worse still, Mugabe has used the time and space afforded him by the GNU to consolidate the dictatorship. For example, Zanu PF has used the illegal diamond mining to boost its party coffers and has completely transformed the Police, Army and CIO into Zanu PF organs.
Tsvangirai is dragging the nation through this time wasting and costly new constitution writing process knowing fully well that Mugabe and Zanu PF bullied MDC into accepting a document that will do nothing to promote freedom and justice. We all know that not even one of the democratic reforms have been implemented and every day there are reports of Zanu PF inspired political violence. Of course the next elections are NOT going to be free and fair. May be Tsvangirai is waiting for the bloodbath to start in earnest for him to final withdraw just as he did in 2008!
By pulling out of this dysfunctional GNU even now, at the eleventh hour, MDC will be acknowledging what we all know to be the reality on the ground: that Mugabe has no intention of holding free elections and MDC has failed to force him to do otherwise. By staying in the GNU, MDC is saying it has forced him to change and Zimbabwe is going to have free election.
It is high time that Tsvangirai and MDC came clean with the people of Zimbabwe, they are the ones who have paid dearly under the Mugabe dictatorship and will continue to do so as long as this dictatorship remains in power. Tsvangirai smuggled Mugabe back into office by signing the GPA in 2008 and has help the dictatorship consolidate its power ever since. He should stop, period!
The good thing is that the people of Zimbabwe are beginning to realise for themselves – the start of the great political awakening! – that MDC is in politics for their own selfish gain just like Zanu PF!
