Tsvangirai demands "conditions first and positions later" of others yet has no clue what reforms. By Wilbert Mukori

The people calling for the coalition in the opposition have all one thing in common, whether they care to admit it or not is irrelevant; they know there is no quality in the opposition and so they hope by bringing as many of the mediocre opposition parties together, quantity will trounce quality! Instead of the coalition’s strength being the sum of the individual parties in these circumstances it is as strong as the weakest individual party or worse!


Getting these corrupt and incompetent individuals to agree on anything as trivial as what name to call themselves is tough; getting them to agree on anything of substance in near impossible!


It is laughable that Tsvangirai should be accusing other opposition leaders of being obsessed with position and neglecting the task of ensuring the elections are free and fair.


"The question of a coalition is neither here nor there. We know that there are people that are putting the coalition discussions first, but we believe what is important is to fight for good electoral conditions. It will not help to have 10-15 parties uniting but going into elections under conditions which will provide the same result. That's why for us, the priority is conditions first and positions later," said Tsvangirai.


He has never fought for good electoral conditions in his whole political career.


If he cared about good electoral conditions then why the devil did he not implement the democratic reforms necessary for free and fair elections when he had the golden opportunity to do so during the GNU?


Even today, two years since the rigged July 2013 elections, he grudgingly admitted were rigged because MDC had failed to implement the reforms; still not even one reform has been implemented. He does not even know himself what reforms should be implemented as he has called for electoral law reforms initially but has recently called for electoral law reforms and “substantive reforms” without saying what these are!


So Tsvangirai want a coalition with other opposition parties but also want them to concentrate of creating the condition for free and fair elections by demanding the implementing of reforms which he himself is not clear what they are! What a waste of time and space!


Morgan Tsvangirai failed to get even one reform implemented during the GNU when MDC had the tramp-cards with the majority in parliament and cabinet and had SADC backing. Since the July 2013 elections it is Mugabe who now has the tramp-cards; the GPA has expired MDC has but a token number of MPs in parliament. It is not as if Tsvangirai is even trying to get the reforms implemented; he clearly has no idea where to start and so he has given up.

If the people of Zimbabwe want free and fair elections in 2018; then it is for them, not the corrupt and incompetent opposition, to demand the implementation of the democratic reforms. One thing the people should know upfront: Zimbabwe cannot afford to have yet another rigged elections in 2018, another five years of the economic meltdown and political chaos thereafter is simply unthinkable.


  1. If there was ever a time the nation needed a quality electorate and/or leaders it is now. I hate to think what will happen to the nation if the next elections brings back this corrupt and tyrannical Zanu PF government. Another five years of this! S***t! Yet given the comatose state of the electorate and the confusion in the opposition this is almost a forgone conclusion!

    No doubt MDC-T leaders have discussed the question of whether or not to form a coalition and the confusion in the party is to be expected, leaders like Tsvangirai are just as confused. He has said one thing today and the exact opposite the follow day!

    1. I thought there was a lot of dead wood in MDC, one had only to look at characters like Tsvangirai and Sibanda in the ZCTU days, Douglas Mwonzora in his ZUM days, etc. It was MDC's failure to get even one reform implemented during the GNU and drafting a weak and feeble constitution that showed me that it was not a matter of some deadwood in MDC the whole party was full of deadwood and nothing else.

      I still cannot believe someone like Senator Coltart, even with the benefit of hindsight still believes that the 2013 constitution is good even after admitting in his book that it gives excessive powers to the state president with no checks and balances. How stupid is that?

      So we have corrupt and incompetent leaders like Tsvangirai and his MDC friends on the one hand and a throng of mindless supporters like our friend here Mudhara of the other. You are right Patrick, we are is serious trouble alright; when we needed quality leaders and voters we have the worst one can ever imagine!

  2. Kudzai Mbudzi say he is publishing a book which will reveal the corruption and abuse of power by Zanu PF.

    "Renemanyanga hariputirwi!" so says a Shona saying. (The truth can never be concealed forever!)

  3. You have raised a very important question; why am I interested in Tsvangirai if, as I have said countless of times he is corrupt and incompetent? You could have extended this by asking the same of Mugabe, I have said a million times that he is a corrupt, incompetent and murderous tyrant.

    Well here is my answer: the two have been a complete disaster as leaders and the nation must be told why they have been such failures and, even more significantly, how to remove the two. Mugabe landed us in this hell-hole and Tsvangirai had many opportunities to get us out but wasted them all.

    Many Zimbabweans now accept that Mugabe is a corrupt, incompetent and murderous tyrant and they have place their faith in Tsvangirai to end Mugabe's reign of terror. What they have yet to understand is that Tsvangirai is corrupt and incompetent, has wasted many golden chances to end Mugabe's rule and has no idea what to do now to end the tyranny.

    Tsvangirai tell the people that he will end Mugabe's dictatorship but is lying, all he really cares about is to get back on the gravy train!

    So to answer you directly, I am here to make sure that the people of Zimbabwe understand that if the want to end the Zanu PF dictatorship they must elect competent and visionary leaders and not corrupt and incompetent ones like Tsvangirai who has already them sold-out before!

    I accept that are slow learners like you Mudhara whom left to discovery the truth for themselves will fol-low failed leaders like Tsvangirai for another ten or twenty years before the penny finally drops. There just to much at stake, the human suffering in the country has reached intolerable levels already and getting worse by the day, we do not have ten years to waste!

    “Zimbabweans are in the process of freeing its themselves and everyone in different political parties are doing it their way which you cannot understand pal,” you say.

    Zimbabwe has been sinking into the abyss these last 36 years and will continue to do so as long as the country continues to be ruled by corrupt and incompetent men and women cheered on by a throng of village idiots like you Mudhara.

  4. Madhuku and his NCA to stage a protest march against the introduction on bond notes.

    NCA accepted the bond coins and now it is objecting to bond notes? Would NCA accept it is the govern-ment increase the bond coins by the same amount as the bond notes they are proposing?

    This is just a case of closing the stable door when the horse has already bolted. When the regime intro-duced the bond coins it was then that it let the gene out of the bottle and there was no putting it back!

    Professor Madhuku and his followers need some physical exercise because this bond notes protest march is completely point otherwise. There are many, many national issues NCA could be protest to demand democratic reforms to stop Zanu PF looting billions of dollars from Marange to finance the party’s elaborate vote rigging schemes, for example. NCA has been contesting elections and surely it has a huge invested interest in making sure elections are free, fair and credible!

  5. Zanu PF top spin doctor Professor Jonathan Moyo has claimed that opposition Zimbabwe Peo-ple First leader Joice Mujuru dashed to Dubai on Friday evening to source funding.

    - See more at:

    Dubai has been buying Zimbabwe's diamonds for a song giving the litany of looting and plundering that has been going on in this industry. Is Mai Mujuru in Dubai to get some of her corrupt contacts there to bankroll her ZimPF with a view of granting them even more lucrative deals in future?

    Mai Mujuru is corrupt and she owes the nation a detailed explanation of how she and her late husband accumulated their huge fortune. It would be an outrage if she should use her ill-got wealth to finance the establishment of her own corrupt and tyrannical political party.

    We are fighting to end the corrupt and tyrannical Zanu PF system and not merely for the change of name from Zanu PF to ZimPF.

  6. You are NOT fighting to free yourself you nincompoop. How does electing an incompetent and corrupt individual like Tsvangirai who then sells-out to the tyrant help free the nation? How does continued support of the same corrupt, incompetent and sell-out help free the nation.

    The task of drumming the truth about failed leaders like Tsvangirai into thick headed nincompoops like you Mudhara is tough work. This nation will never ever get out of this hell-hole as long as we have voters like you who will not think. I am determined to get this nation out of this mess and if that means kick the backsides of nincompoops like you until you open your eyes then so be it!

    So if there is no alternative leader is that your excuse for following a corrupt and incompetent one who has just sold-out the nation for a $4 million Highlands mansion? How any human being can be so shockingly stupid is the great mystery here!
