Mujuru mimic Tsvangirai in calling for "electoral law reforms", like him she too in breathtakingly incompetent. By P Guramatunhu
Many people have said Mai Mujuru is incompetent,
amongst many other weaknesses, and she did not waste time in proving them
electoral laws reformed to ensure a free and fair election. The suffering
masses need to make this loud and clear to ensure elections are not stolen or
rigged,” said Mai Mujuru at her first press conference to launch her Zimbabwe
People First party.
She has been in this Zanu PF government for 34
years; she was there throughout the years of the formative years of the
dictatorship and therefore one would expect her to the workings of the
dictatorship, if she had been awake. She would know that the Zimbabwe Republic
Police, for example, has been thoroughly indoctrinated by Zanu PF that Police
Officers across the land have been forced to subscribe to the view that
stopping regime change is part and parcel of their duty.
Again if Mai Mujuru had been awake during the GNU
years then she would know that President Mugabe saw to it that the new constitution
approved in the March 2013 referendum did not in any way weaken his dictatorial
strangle hold on any of the state institutions including the Police.
So, one has to ask Mai Mujuru, what electoral law reforms
does she want implemented that would force the Police to focus on their duty of
maintaining law and order instead of fighting in Zanu PF’s corner to ensure
there was no regime change?
A few months ago Morgan Tsvangirai launched MDC-T’s
National Electoral Reform Agenda (NERA), in which he listed eight or so
electoral law that needed to be re-aligned to the new constitution. Zimbabwe’s
opposition parties are renowned for being corrupt and incompetent but even they
saw point in supporting NERA because it was clear none of the proposed reforms
would stop the vote rigging or the political violence.
A local NGO on legal matters has describe the
electoral law reforms proposed in NERA as ineffective in delivering free and
fair elections because the reforms are “inadequate and incomplete”. NERA is
dead in the water.
If Mai Mujuru had been awake throughout the NGU
years then she would know that the comprehensive democratic reforms agreed in
the 2008 GPA are what the nation needs to implement. Being corrupt and
incompetent herself she will have good reasons to fear the implementation of
all the GPA reforms, she will not be able to compete in a democratic Zimbabwe
complete with a free press and free and fair elections.
Making sure the next elections are free, fair and
credible is the greatest political challenge in Zimbabwe today. There is no
doubt that Mai Mujuru, just like Morgan Tsvangirai, does not have a clue how to
stop Zanu PF rigging the next elections; she and Tsvangirai have one thing in
common, they are both breathtakingly incompetent!
