1] The key thing to read from this cryptic tweet is that there's a #Leadership vacuum in the so called #MDC of #Tsvangirai

Knowing too well that some #MDC-T supporters feel very strongly against her, the intention is to politically pronounce that #Khupe is a transitional Leader.
2] It's hilarious for EM, who accepted an appointment outside #Congress, to lecture #MDC-T supporters on #Khupe's #2014Congress #legitimacy

Defeats the whole purpose of the new argument

Why does it matter now?

Had the powers of #Congress #legitimacy been lost to him all long?
3] Back to the cryptic tweet..

EM is making political notification to MDC-T supporters, that MaKhupe should be accommodated for the duration of the EOC preparations.

Politically,it cannot happen.

There is no judgement that can erase the political realities of the past 2 years.

USE THIS #Thread #Paradox of #AntiracistEdLeadership in #Edsystems- thoughts I've been really mulling abt in the past while. Have to admit, I've been sitting on this for a couple weeks. Grateful to those who helped me sift through my thinking <3 Here's to #courageousconversations
True #AntiRacist Leadership can only happen when you are anchored in #communities and you do the work #buildrelationships #seekadvice #love & #beLoved by those who give you #permission & #legitimacy to continue the struggle in boardrooms.
When I became a senior leader in Edu. I was advised that - You cannot be on the streets & in the boardrooms. "its time to choose. Its a different struggle." I didnt choose bc WE deserve to be in the boardroom but THAT choice comes at a #price

1] At face value, you would think, we need to fully open #Parliament.

Gov needs to be kept on check.

Policy discussion & dissemination of info,all point towards the need to #ReopenZimParliament

However,the more you watch it, the less you're convinced we need Parliament at all.
2] Was laughing at #Mwonzora as he castigated #MDC_A #MPs who have defied his court granted authority, to continue going to #Parliament.

His argument was, gvt needs to be kept in check.

A few hours back, #ZiyambiZiyambi had embarrassingly belittled him in that same #Parliament.
3] If #Mwonzora is to be honest with himself, he hasn't achieved anything in that #Parliament as #Senator.

Not even because he isn't effective, but because the people they are supposed to be playing #watchdog on, are just unrelenting.

You barely see any meaningful engagements.

China abandons GDP target for first time in decades. Historical decision, significance goes beyond current COVID-19 crisis. (1/5) #GDP #China #TwoSessions

Very wise to drop GDP target. Many, including Liu He, probably want to see it disappear permanently. But GDP target much more than a policy goal. GDP growth = foundation CCP's legitimacy for over 30 yrs. Scrapping 2020 target also affects CCPs long-term promises and goals.. (2/5)
What is next? Do GDP targets (including long term 2020-target) permanently disappear? Simply postpone achieving 'moderately prosperous society' for 1 year? Or further redefine this long-term goal? Shift to (more) environment, health, well-being targets? (3/5)

The #legitimacy of any form of #government is not and cannot be based upon #consent, but upon how well it protects the rights of those who refuse to consent.
When the bullshit is stripped away, #Socialism is #theft, and can never be a moral form of political economy, because it cannot protect the rights of those who refuse to consent to the theft of their earned wealth. Those who do consent are not prevented under any other system…
from engaging in #voluntary #cooperative #ownership of #capital. Therefore, #Socialism is not defined by voluntary participation, but by #coercion, or #theft, a universal #moral harm. #Intent is not #magic. Good intent and good works do not and cannot excuse the theft.
