If 2018 elections are rigged; MDC lot will walk the plank to join Mutambara – will put them to the sword!
MDC-T is scheduled to hold a demo in Bindura on Friday with another one chalked in on 25 June 2016 in Mutare.
“This came as the MDC-T continues to roll out protest marches in all parts of the country as part of efforts to force President Robert Mugabe's Zanu PF-led government to quit over its failed policies. To date, MDC-T supporters have held similar demonstrations in Harare and Bulawayo,” Bulawayo 24 reported.
“On June 25, the party plans to hold another protest march in Mutare where members have reportedly embarked on a door-to-door campaign to ensure a large turnout.”
What exactly is MDC hoping to accomplish with these demos? Zanu PF had its own one-million man march last month where the party faithful called on President Mugabe to not only stay on president but to stand as the party’s presidential candidate for the 2018 elections. So these follow up MDC demos call on President Mugabe to go will be of no real political consequences and will be ignored.
The next pertinent question is why is MDC-T wasting time in this rat-race, especially when the party has done nothing to implement the democratic reforms designed to stop Zanu PF rigging elections – the real political game changer?
The primary purpose of the 2008 GNU was to implement the raft of democratic reforms everyone agreed were necessary to ensure Zimbabwe’s future elections were free, fair and credible and not a repeat of that year’s elections which were marred by vote rigging and wanton violence. SADC Heads of State reminded MDC leaders to implement the reforms but were ignored. President Mugabe went on to blatantly rig the 2013 elections precisely because not even one of the democratic reforms had been implemented.
MDC leaders complained that Zanu PF had rigged the 2013 elections and vowed to boycott all future elections until the reforms are implemented. We are two years away from the next elections and yet there have not been any moves to get the reforms finally implemented. Needless to say that with no reforms implemented, Zanu PF will once again blatantly rig the next elections!
If the 2018 elections are rigged then Morgan Tsvangirai and his MDC friends will walk the plank to join Arthur Mutambara into political retirement because they would have proven beyond doubt that they corrupt, incompetent and useless! I will put them to the sword myself just to be absolutely certain that this time these useless politicians finally retire from all public life for good!
