MDC parliament’s failure to curb lawlessness has emboldened the thugs!

Three Soldiers assaulted two youths in Epworth,Hararefor wear MDC T-ships and then handed the two over to the notorious Zanu PF gang, Chipangano, were the youths were assaulted and tortured.
Last week a soldier had passengers in a Kombi detained for criticising the Army’s report take over the censor process in many parts of the country.
Last weekend the Police banned all MDC rallied in Mashonaland West because the party did not get clearance from local Chiefs and Headmen for the rallies.
Reports of Police, Army, CIO and Zanu PF thugs harassment, beatings, arrests and abuse of their power and authority for the political benefit of Zanu PF are pouring in everyday. It is hard to see how there can be free and fair elections and therefore the meaningful change Zimbabweans have been hoping for in this climate. This is a prelude to what is set to be the worse election violence in the country’s history.
Parliament is the only institution in the land with the power and authority to deal with this increasing lawlessness by the Police and Army. It is the failure by parliament to act timeously that has emboldened these thugs, Soldiers and Police Officers.
My advice to every Zimbabwean out there is to burn your MDC T-shirt, party membership card; everything that ties you to that party. That party betrayed and abandoned you, its supporters and the public at large; it is not worth risking one Zimbabwean beating or life.
MDC betrayed its supporters and the nation by going into a power sharing arrangement with Mugabe in which the latter had all the tyrannical powers which he is now using to institute this lawlessness. MDC has failed to deliver not even one democratic reform in all its four years in the GNU. And, to add insult to injury, MDC by its cowardly failure to use its parliamentary majority to rein in the abuse of power by people like Police Commissioner Chihuri and Mugabe himself undermined the effectiveness and purpose of parliament itself!
Yes Zimbabweans are desperate for meaningful political change still we should not let our desperation blind us to the reality that Tsvangirai and MDC have failed to bring about that change and they never will. It is typical of failed leaders like Tsvangirai to respond to their blundering by demanding even more sacrifice in turns of human suffering and blood. There must be other logical ways of achieving meaningful and lasting political change inZimbabwethan this mindless game of body bag count! Even if violence could not be avoided, because it is Mugabe who decrees its, at least we should seek the assurance that this time the tyrant or his cronies will not be invited back into power to torment the nation again.
