Zimbabwe is facing a serious economic meltdown; with unemployment soaring to nauseating heights of 90% plus, no clean running water in most cities and town, government failing to pay civil servants, rampant corruption with $15 billion being looted and no one arrested, etc. The people of Budiriro voted for MDC-T politician Costa Machingauta, like millions of other Zimbabweans up and down the country, to save them from the nightmare of the economic meltdown.
The economic meltdown is getting worse and worse, not better. There is no doubt that MDC-T, for all their claim that they will improve the people’s lives, have no idea what to do.
The key to Zimbabwe’s economic recovery is making sure the nation has competent and democratically accountable leaders which is only possible if the nation has free, fair and credible elections. The nation has to implement a raft of democratic reforms designed to dismantle the Zanu PF vote rigging machinery if there are going to be free and fair elections.
Nothing of any substance or meaning can ever be achieved until we cure ourselves of this intractable political system that has allowed incompetent, corrupt and tyrannical politicians to stay in power by denying the people their basic freedoms and rights including the right to a meaningful vote!
Morgan Tsvangirai and his MDC friends had the golden opportunity to implement the democratic reforms during the GNU. After five years, they failed to get even one reform implemented. Not one!
Even since the July 2013 elections MDC-T has vowed the party will not take part in any future elections until reforms are implemented. Sadly, three years later, they have failed to get even one reform implemented and it is clear they have given up hope of getting any reforms implemented. And, as noted above, the economic meltdown is getting worse and not better.
No doubt MP Machingauta would want to be re-elected in 2018 but, like everyone else in MDC-T, has precious little to show for all his years in parliament. MDC-T politicians know they are corrupt and/or incompetent and since they cannot dazzle the electorate with brilliance they have decided to baffle the people with bull! MP Machingauta decided to amuse us by turning up in parliament dressed as a clown!
Quick, send in the MP …… don’t bother the clown are here!
Zanu PF is party of corrupt and murderous thugs and it took the nation nearly 20 years to realize this. For the last 17 years the people of Zimbabwe have risked life and limb to elect MDC members into power in the hope that they will bring about meaningful democratic change. It has turned out that MDC is a party of incompetent and corrupt clowns. The question is how long will it take the people of Zimbabwe to finally admit the MDC clowns will never get them out of the economic mess Zanu PF landed the nation into?
The Zimbabwe electorate elected corrupt and murderous Zanu PF thugs in 1980 and for the last 17 years the people have put their trust in incompetent and corrupt clowns to end the Zanu PF dictatorship. If the people are serious about getting out of the hell-hole Mugabe has landed the nation into then it is clear that they must take the task of electing competent and quality leaders with the seriousness the matter demands.
It was downright foolish to have entrusted the destiny of the nation in a corrupt and murderous thug like Mugabe but only a fool will then go on to elect a corrupt and incompetent clown like Tsvangirai to get the nation out of the hell-hole. Zimbabwe is desperate for meaningful change, is dying for economic recovery; we would not be in this hell-hole if we had not elected thugs in 1980 and clowns will never lead us out of the hellhole.
