MDC fighting for gravy train seat: ignoring the orgy of violence storm ahead!

January 23, 2013 in Uncategorized

“We have a rich menu and an excellent combination of young and dynamic, tried and tested leaders, experienced senior citizens and skilled Zimbabweans who want to be MDC candidates come elections,” said Nelson Chamisa, a senior MDC-T leader.

“Kukangamwa chezuro nehope!” – They go to sleep and forget yesterday’s troubles!

In 2008 hundreds of thousands of Zimbabweans, mostly MDC supporters, were beaten and/or raped and over 500 were murdered in the orgy of political violence. For the last five years Prime Minister Tsvangirai and his MDC Ministers and MPs single most important task should have been implementing the agreed democratic reforms to ensure the next elections are free and fair and the orgy of violence of 2008 is never repeated ever again.

Sadly the PM and his MDC friends took off their eyes from the critical task in hand. Not even one reform has been implemented. They had the snouts in the feeding trough and enjoying the good life on offered on the gravy train.

The seating MDC leaders are completely focused on retaining their seats on the gravy train whilst thousands new faces are equally focused on unseating them. They are both ignoring the dark clouds of the orgy of violence threatening the whole nation.

The political violence can still be avoided, even now at this the eleventh hour, by Zimbabweans rejecting the Copac constitution in the upcoming referendum. PM Tsvangirai and his MDC friends are not going to listen to reason on this matter; their minds are totally focused on securing a seat on the gravy train regardless the high price in life and limb to povo or in lost opportunity to the nation!
