2013 election will “be bloodier than 2008″ MDC Minister Makone admits!

“This election is going to be bloodier than 2008, the makings of a horror election is there in front of us for all to see,” admitted the MDC Home Affairs Minister, Theresa Makone on S W Radio Africa Hot Seat programme. This raises three questions:
a) MDC has been telling the people to vote yes in the referendum based on the argument that there will be no violence. So why has the party been lying to the people?
b) There were a raft of reforms agreed in the GPA which would have ended Mugabe’s dictatorial powers and freed institutions like the Police and Judiciary to carryout their statutory duties in a none partisan manner. Why were the reforms not carried out?
c) You now admit the violence will be bloodier than 2008 because MDC failed to have the reforms implemented. The only way to stop the elections going ahead now is if people vote no in the referendum. Why is MDC not campaigning for a no vote in the referendum and save the nation a “bloodier” election than 2008?
Ultimately it is the people themselves who, in this case, will cast the deciding vote. Are the people going to still vote yes and let the “bloodier” than 2008 elections go ahead? Or will they come to their senses and vote no and save the nation the “horror” they can see with their own eyes and is now within their own voting power to avoid?
