MDC too can "cheat" threatens Mwonzora - puny dog's fart will not frighten Zanu PF P Guramatunhu.

The sheer stupidity of the MDC leaders never seize to amaze me!
“I want to say madam Chairperson of ZEC and of the portfolio committee, I want to say to everyone who is here. I know this is multiparty, gone are the days when we thought it was only the ruling party which is capable of rigging elections,” said Douglas Mwonzora, Secretary of MDC-T, Zimbabwe’s biggest opposition party.  
“We saw in Malawi, in Nigeria that the opposition can also cheat in elections. So we in the opposition are capable of cheating, you in the ruling party are capable of cheating, so let’s make rules so that we don’t cheat each other.”
Mwonzora was speaking just speaking to some minions drinking seven-days beer but to a parliamentary hearing on Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs! He had the chance to put forward a case why Zimbabwe must finally implement the raft of democratic reforms agreed in the 2008 Global Political Agreement by both Zanu PF and the two MDC factions with SADC as the guarantor. Not even one reform was ever implemented during the five years of the GNU and since its demise.
The Zanu PF cabal bend over backwards to pamper Morgan Tsvangirai and the rest of the MDC leaders during the GNU; they were given ministerial limos, generous salaries and allowances, Tsvangirai and Ncube got a $4 million mansion and former white-owned farm respectively. As co-chairperson of the parliamentary committee task to draft the new 2013 constitution Mwonzora was paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in allowances alone. He has used some of the money to build the big house, “the hotel”, as fellow MDC leader Job Sikhala once call it; because he could not think of anything better to do with all that money. This was a milk trap to the MDC cockroaches!
The MDC leaders gorged themselves on the gravy train good life they forgot implementing the democratic reforms. SADC leaders tried to remind Tsvangirai and friends of the need to implement the reforms and they were ignored!

Mugabe and his fellow Zanu PF thugs pampered MDC leaders during the GNU and continue to do so even to this day, with President Mnangagwa giving the late Tsvangirai the deeds to the $4 million mansion plus a generous pension although he was no under an legal obligation to do so; not out of the generosity of their murderous hearts. They did so out of fear. Their paid the generous bribes to stop MDC implementing the democratic reforms during the GNU. They are bribing MDC leaders to contest the flawed elections because they do not want the process declare null and void and force them to concede the need to implement the reforms.

“You can’t expect us to reform ourselves out of power,” conceded Professor Jonathan Moyo at one of Dr Ibbo Mandaza’s SAPES panel discussions, a year ago.

Those were the days when the Professor at the height of his political power as a senior Zanu PF member. He was untouchable then. Since the November 2017 coup in which the Lacoste faction of Zanu PF prevailed over the G40 faction; Professor Moyo and the other G40 members have become wanted fugitives. How Professor Moyo must now be wishing he had worked tireless to get all the democratic reforms implemented. He would have reformed himself and his fellow Zanu PF thugs out of power but allow a democratic, just and progressive Zimbabwe to emerge. His selfish dream of holding on to dictatorial power has turned into the worse nightmare he never imagined possible.

It is laughable that, even with the benefit of hindsight of GNU and all Zanu P’s Machiavellian political machinations and intrigues, a senior MDC leader like Mwonzora still fails to see the critical importance of the GPA democratic reforms and why scarred stiff of having the reforms implemented.     
“So we in the opposition are capable of cheating, you in the ruling party are capable of cheating, so let’s make rules so that we don’t cheat each other!” Yeah, right!
If MDC had as much power to rig the elections as Zanu PF has then why has MDC failed to cheat and get into power all these last 20 years?
"What kind of power was it if everybody knew that it would never be used?” asked the great African writer and intellectual, Chinua Achebe in his book Arrow of God. He too was questioning the foolishness of mystical powers that are never put to good use.
“Better to say that it was not there, that it was no more than the power in the anus of the proud dog who tried to put out a furnace with his puny fart."
Time is fast running out, the next elections are now upon us. We must implement the 2008 GPA reforms and postpone elections until this is done for holding elections without reforms is a waste of time and treasure. Mwonzora’s threat to cheat if reforms are not implemented must be ignored with the contempt it deserves; it is nothing puny fart of a proud dog!


  1. On corruption everyone with eyes could see Mnangagwa was going nowhere on this since he himself, his VP Chiwenga and many others in his regime are as corrupt as all the other Zanu PF members. He targeted G40 members not to end corruption but for political milage.

    On the delivering of free, fair and credible elections; Mnangagwa was very care not to even say a word on the matter in his message. He knows that he has done nothing. He has refused to implement the reforms without which free and fair elections are impossible!

  2. The Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Justice is holding a workshop on electoral and media reforms ahead of the 2018 elections at a local hotel in Harare.

    The event has been organised by the Southern African Parliamentary Support Trust.

    Issues under discussion include electoral, media reforms, addressing concerns of people with disabilities, among others.

    Zimbabwe Electoral Commission Chairperson Justice Priscilla Chigumba has implored Zimbabweans to shun violence and hate speech for the holding of free, fair and credible elections.

    This is just another talk-shop where the invited delegates get a free lunch and drinks and message their egos. Nothing of substance will ever come out of this. What reforms can be implemented now, less than five months before the elections?

    As for ZEC chairperson, Justice Chigumba, we all know you are there for window dressing; Zanu PF is going ahead with its plans to rig the elections. So, please spare us all the nonsense; it is not the ordinary Zimbabweans who are behind the country's culture of political violence it is Zanu PF. Instead of "implored Zimbabweans to shun violence and hate speech," implore Zanu PF to implement the democratic reforms to take away the regime's carte blanche powers to blatantly rig the vote and use violence. If you are not going to call a spade a spade then shut up!

  3. "However, dates for general elections are set by the President by way of a proclamation in terms of Section 44 of the constitution. After a proclamation on an election date, the nomination courts must sit on a day which is at least 14 days and not more than 21 days after proclamation date."

    Chigumba said the elections would then follow on a day which was at least 30 days and not more than 63 days after nomination court day.

    The July 2013 elections were rigged and since those election not even one democratic reform has been implemented to ensure free and fair elections. Without reforms Zanu PF will rig this year's elections just as it rigged the July 2013 elections.

    Zimbabwe is in this hell-hole because the country has failed to hold free and fair elections and it is not getting out of the hole until it holds free and fair elections.
