“… there is this lame argument around bussing people he he he! Nonsense!” wrote the insufferable Nathaniel Manheru. “Did we not see the Youth League executive addressing meetings in all the country's 10 province? Do you reach 10 provinces to raise crowds for a local rally? And were people supposed to come on foot from those provinces?
“How is it different on Election Day? Is there a law that stops bussing of voters seeking to reach a booth, assuming there will be some booths far away from the voting public? What is the point? Yes, people were bussed from all over the country, people today, voters tomorrow. And the difficulties by some in getting back to their home provinces. What does that tell?
“That resources for the million man march were sparse, hard to come by. What was abundant was the zeal, the will to march for a million. You can't argue that State resources were abused and still find people stranded in Harare. Does that make sense? What is your day like, dear critic?
“Zanu-PF will did it again! Zanu Yedu/ Tinooidaaa Zanu Yedu tinoida/ Kunyangwe zvavo/ Kunyangwe zvavo vakachema, vakarovera musoro padombo, mangopinda tinokunda.”
Such boastfulness even now with the writing of Zanu PF’s demise on the wall is typical of tyrannical regimes who have refused to accept change until it is too late to do so. Whilst they know they are staring defeat in the face, they put on a brave face and pretend their tyrannical rule will last until the donkey have horns!
No, Manheru, there is nothing wrong with bussing people from one rally to the next and, come election day, bussing the supporters to polling stations. However there is something wrong with bussing people who do not live in one constituency to another to vote. There is something wrong with increasing the number of polling stations from 2 000 to 9 000 just two days before polling day and then bussing supporters from one polling station to the next to cast multiple votes.
It is a criminal offence for the government of the day to refuse to release a voters roll although it is required by law to do so a month before voting day. Up to this day Zanu PF has refused to release the voters roll. They know the voters roll is one of the smoking guns to the vote rigging of the 2013 elections.
It is interesting to note that a few months ago the same Manheru, who is pretending today that the last elections were free and fair, was reminding the then Minister Chris Mutsvangwa that he should not be too boastful about him having the people’s mandate to govern when his election victory was fixed!
There is no doubt that people like you Manheru love Zanu PF “Zanu yedu tinoida!” you are chanting; why not you have had your fair share of the looted wealth. From your PSMAS board membership fees alone you have earned a cool $100 000 per year! You have shown any sympathy for the civil servants, whose membership subscription you are looting, who have been forced to do without the medical help because the doctors are asking them to pay cash because PSMAS, looted by the top managers, is not paying the doctors’ bills.
The poor civil servants, who earn as little as $500 a month, cannot afford to pay PSMAS membership subscriptions and then pay cash to the doctors are being forced to do without life- saving medical help!
President Mugabe has been doing his bit fleecing the Zimbabwe people. He has send his daughter overseas to study staying in a $50 million mansion, had a $5 million wedding for her, has just spent millions for her to have her baby in the Far East, etc. and yet the hospitals the rest of us ordinary mortals are forced to use are so poorly funded most of them do not have something as basic as an incubator!
Yes Comrade Manheru you, President Mugabe and all the other Zanu PF cronies have been singing “Zanu yedu tinoida!” for the last 36 years but even amongst yourselves there is discord. Where is the likes of Mai Mujuru and her supporters? There are today two factions the Mnangagwa and the G40 factions fighting it out. The one-million man march was a G40 rally in all but name. Zanu PF is imploding and the country’s worsening economic meltdown is fuelling the break up.
