Tsvangirai is in Dovas wittering about maximum presidential term: the penny has not dropped!

This man simply does not get it does he? He keeps wittering about the president will now serve a maximum of two-five terms the most important issue here and has been all along is that elections must be free and fair.
When the Copac draft as first released in July 2012, Tsvangirai said the new constitution would deliver free and fair elections but when corned to quote the clause that would force the Police to arrest those responsible for the violence; he failed to do so because there is no such in Copac clause. Copac is a very feeble and weak constitution not worth the paper it is written on.
The Pm conceded it would be necessary to implement the democratic reforms agreed in the GPA if the nation was to have free and fair elections. He would get SADC to force Mugabe to implement the reforms. Considering MDC had failed to get the reforms implemented in the last four years the whole world doubted the party succeed now in the remaining few months before the new elections.
Mr Prime Minister Tsvangirai; are you going to have the reforms implemented BEFORE the elections? Yes or no?
Of course the answer is no. He is too weak and feeble to have ever get the reforms past Mugabe.
So Zimbabwe is being dragged into new elections certain of one thing that there will be a repeat of the orgy of violence of 2008 or worse! And the very man who has led the nation into this nightmare keeps wittering about the next president serving a maximum of ten years.
Tsvangirai is in Dovas Switzerland attending the World Economic Forum. He told the Bloomberg reporter, “Since there is a national consensus (on the Copac constitution) by all parties, the referendum will be a formality.”
Mugabe is 88 years old and sickly; he was not going to make a fuss over being told he could rule for a further ten years maximum. He knows he would never win free and fair elections; force him to implement the reform and thus make it impossible for him to use violence to force the electorate to vote for him and he would fought like a tiger resisting the reforms!
This is like telling a woman she will be forced to marry a man she hates and who will abuse her but not to worry because she can divorce him in ten years when another brute will be imposed on her! How I wish the Zimbabwean people had had someone in their corner for their basic rights, human dignity and a democratic constitution and not this Copac rubbish!
