1] The meeting of the 2014 structures of the #MDC of #Tsvangirai as well as its subsequent resolutions were both inevitable.

The reason is not that they have necessarily decided to implement the SC verdict, but rather that they need to stop #Mwonzora from politically abusing it.
2] As exposed by a letter circulating, #Mwonzora, #Komichi & #Mudzuri among others, who did not attend, were actually invited.

It then nonsensical for the resolutions to be declared void by #Mwonzora and his camp.

In their absence, #legally, the meeting proceeded.
3] Back to the judgement, #Mwonzora had become so dangerously excited.

He recalled MPs without any MDC-T structure meeting.
He had become the defacto MDC-T NC,SC & #Constitution.

#Komichi elevated himself without any engagement with the actual Chair, as directed by the ruling.
4] But what is actually key about the meeting is that #Mwonzora was not fired or anything.

He was simply asked to convene a legal meeting of the old MDC-T, using his new old role as SG.

#Komichi can even Chair the NC meeting.
#Mwonzora can write the minutes.

It has to happen.
5] You can choose your side, but bottom line is, a judgement doesn't self implement.

It can not equally be individually implemented by #Mwonzora who has become so busy he doesn't remember when he issued a key statement.

His claims of #constitutionalism adherence must be tested.
6] It is equally key to note that the communique maintained that #MaKhupe remains outside the old party after absconding meetings.

Obviously #Mwonzora has an option of digging in.
He can even get more court #judgements.

Bottom line is, they have brought the fight to him.
7] It will be interesting to note what the other camp decide to do.

The #NationalCouncil meeing can decided against implementing the SC ruling.

It can even decide to fire #Mwonzora & others.

What remains key is that #Mwonzora clearly lacks the backing of those structures.
8] What is key here is that the #Chamisa group is politically grounded by the i
#indefinite #lockdown.

It has to find other ways of acting.

As I've stressed, #Mwonzora has to be stopped from abusing the #SCJudgement.

Knowing #Mwonzora, he will purport to fire those people.
9] But ive already said for the past 2 years, #Mwonzora needs to work on his political arithmetics.

He keeps #miscalculating & #misfiring.

It has always been a hard fact that he lacks the support of the #MDC structures.

All MDCs he has been part of.

For now, we wait.
enkosi!!

1] Dear @ProfJNMoyo, in the spirit of engagement, I share my individual reaction to your mischief, deliberately misrepresented as a legal/intellectual argument.

I emphasize that this is my INDIVIDUAL thoughts, that shouldn't be linked to any structure nor party. 🤣

A thread....
2] Firstly, Iet me express how much I was absolutely impressed by your audacity to quote our constitution, to justify your temper tantrum.

Clearly, there's no limit to the frightening lengths you're willing to go, when your sense of superiority & self importance, is disregarded
3] Fortunately for citizens, unlike the pre-2017 era, when you had the luxury to influence state institutions against (perceived) opponents & opposition to your interests, thoughts & unholy desires, you now find yourself mostly whispering in the wind.

It's a bit of a relief.

1] Seems like debates over the structuring of CCC, just won't go away.

At face value, these conversations are political manure, that will certainly help grow our democracy.

Politically also, these conversations reinforces the position of CCC as the ultimate alternative.
2] Writing an article attached below, I did opinion that it would be naivety of the highest order, for CCC to behave, and for its supporters to equally demand that it behaves, as if Zimbabwe is a normal democracy.

Doing so, will only lead to its demise .

3] #PoliticalIdeology

I always laugh when I read that CCC has no political #Ideology.

By definition, an #ideology is a set #ideas; #beliefs; #values; and #opinions, providing #actionplans, for #public #policy making.

These spell out the party's overal #political #action.

1] Over the last couple of days, one of the most dominant topics on the blue-streets, has been the Ian Smith story

After all is said and done, what the proponents of the "Smith was better" narrative are simply expressing, is absolute disillusionment with ZanuPF's disastrous rule
2] If ZanuPF's leaders were self-respecting, they would use this debate to self introspect.

When you're a "liberation" movement, and you govern people who think you're worse than a colonial government, it means you've betrayed the liberation agenda itself.

Sit back & reflect.
3] Being combative & accusing those expressing that sentiment, of suffering from a colonial hangover, or being proponents of "a regime change agenda" is a useless, overplayed card.

Equally, claiming that those sentiments are an indictment on Chamisa, is foolishness on steroids.

1] 'Mukoma' knows all too well, that this claim of political parties being "equal partners" is political blasphemy.

It's only in church, before Christ, where humans are "equal".

Institutions, by whatever benchmark, can't be "equal", more so, those competing for popular support.
2] Mukoma knows that this very understanding of a hierarchical order was the reason why the "MDC-A agreement" which he's passionate about, allocated seats in 2017/18, unequally.

That placement, was advised by electoral weight, and what each party brought to the proverbial table.
3] Mukoma, also claimed that he had taken over the MDC-A Leadership, by virtue of being MDC-T Leader, as the latter was the "biggest party in the ALLIANCE".

By so doing, mukoma actually permanently relegated the rest of the "ALLIANCE partners", to playing "second fiddle".

1] I see that some citizens in the yellow movement couldn't resist this nonsensical invitation to draw comparisons between Dr Tsvangirai and Adv Chamisa.

The tragic part being that some even began ridiculing Dr Tsvangirai, as an expression of trust in Adv Chamisa's leadership.
2] Firstly, the G40's (many of whom didn't go to war), equally had no respect for Dr Tsvangirai whatsoever, over exaggerated 'fundamental political differences'.

For them, vitro towards Dr MRT made them feel militant & gave then a sense of belonging, in the 'liberation party'
3] Secondly, it's quite patronizing, for ex & current ZanuPF leaders, to say 'Tsvangirai had courage'.

What they actually mean is that he withstood their name calling, torture & murder, electoral theft, among other actions against him.

Saying this is anything but admiration.

1] @CCCZimbabwe continue to do unorthodox politics.

Many would recall that the citizens movement has since done away with 'VIP tents' practice, a seemingly harmless old system, which sadly carries with it, far-reaching yet strong hidden meanings. Image
2] Though not admittedly unique to us as a nation, the divide between the elected (bosses) and the electors (povho) has continously been allowed to widen.

Usually citing security concern (at times conviniently), the elected seldom use services used by those who elected them.
3] Most times, the irony of it is that the poor state of some of the services, are a direct consequence of their (the elected) inability to govern.

Frustratingly, some amongst the affected, are at the forefront of rationalizing these nonsensical practices/behaviors.
