1] As citizens wait patiently for the #HighCourt ruling on the matter regarding #MDC_T's parenthood of the #MDC_A, i fail to see how the judgement changes anything really.

This is because the #MDC_A is now a political party.
Something which a court can neither confirm nor deny.
2] The crux of this matter is more #political than it is #legal.

Though #Mwonzora & team were arguing today that the #MDC_A was an #electoral pact which merely now exists as some faction of the #MDC, only a week ago, he had people recalled for joining a party called "#MDC_A".
3] Although #Mwonzora was argues the MDC-A is a 2018 coalition, which ceased to exist post elections, nothing suggest the "individual parties" continued existing as such.

For post 2018 bi-elections,what strategy was used to choose candidates if the parties remained autonomous?

1/21 #NovemberInFebruary
"For keen students of Zimbabwean history, this February is threatening to replace November as the month of momentous events!".
29 January 2020

Strangely but tellingly, some took this metaphoric tweet as a prediction of a military coup in February. Ok!
2/21 The words of the tweet speak for themselves, despite the misplaced but understandable attempts to squeeze blood out of them. Zimbabwe is at the crossroads. The country is pregnant with change. Something is afoot. But there's no telling what it is or when it will be born!
3/21 I used the November metaphor to capture & convey the gestalt of the moment. Besides its sacred Shona myths, November has historical significance in Zimbabwe as the month of momentous events. The pioneer column of Cecil John Rhodes moved on King Lobengula in November 1893!

No episódio de hoje do #Eatwitt patrocinado pelo #MDC, vou ensinar como sempre ter um caldo de galinha/legumes caseiro fantástico à disposição para suas receitas:
Em primeiro lugar, crie o hábito de guardar legumes como o talo do salsão, do alho poró etc em sacos ziplock e guardar congelado
Sabe aquele frango de televisão do final de semana? Use o resto da carcaça dele com os legumes q você guardou, com uma cebola e coloque na panela de pressão coberto com água por 1 hora

1]It's #PoeticJustice,that i write a thread on the shenanigans in the #MDCALLIANCE on April 1st,a day loosely known as #FoolsDay.Sometimes you get the impression that some in the MDC are political fools.Are they ready to be a gvt when they aren't ready to be a political party?
2] #ZanuPF didn't win the #CowdryPark by-election,the #MDC lost it.They have learnt nothing and forgot nothing.I once argued that whoever resisted having the #MDCExtraordinaryCongress last year is a political tactician.The disaster would have been spectacular.
3]What we saw was just #MDC factional battles.It boggles ones mind how the #Mwonzora guy, misogynistic #Ndhlovu managed embarrassing votes yet he was the "official candidate".What makes the "unofficial candidate" garner more votes yet defying a party directive?

One need not hold a brief for @dewamavhinga to realise how shocking, outrageous & unacceptable it is for Strive Masiyiwa to accuse Dewa of cyberbullying his wife; & top that by peddling his crap accusation on the Internet while name dropping, in the hope of costing Dewa his job!
1/24 The self-righteous outburst by #StriveMasiyiwa, supported by his fellow bible-quoting juntapreneurs, in response to a polite & genuine concern by @dewamavhinga reveals he holds himself as an untouchable who is beyond criticism. Yet his closet is full of despicable skeletons!
2/24 #StriveMasiyiwa has escaped scrutiny, thanks to Zimbabwe's flawed public discourse which has never been about facts, truth or ideas but about "good guys" versus "bad guys"; presumed to be such by definition, not by deed. So Zimbabwe, sadly, has no culture of truth-telling!
