1] By each passing day, i wonder what goes through #Mwonzora's mind as he continues to lose his #political battles with #Chamisa.

How does he think of himself as SG of a party who's supposed #MPs (majority), continue to defy his #authority?

Surely, one has to #pause & #reflect.
2] MDC supporters have seen 3 splits now.

They know that they have little to do with #constitutionalism.

When Biti left, NC, commenting on the #congress that followed mockingly said "we haven't invited Tendai & his oranges"

Fast forward to 2019, he's his closest lieutenant.
3] When Ncube left, citing certain issues, those who have left now mocked him.

The same happened when Biti & EM & even MaKhupe left.

The #constitutionalists remained.

The MDC supporters are not stupid.
They are rational.
They see through the patronizing Latin from the Lawyers.
4] Now, for all intent & purposes, those who have sided with #Chamisa, in the immediacy, they have more to personally lose.

Most of them have no stable source of income.

Perks that include cars & hotels will be lost.

But still, majority of these MPs have followed #Chamisa.
5] #Mwonzora bullishly warned after his recall of #Hwende et al that the jury on who was in charge of MPs was now out.

Almost a month later, seems like it was just a whisper in the wind.

Even the so called #MDC-T 2014 structures are defying him.

Is he SG to the SC ruling only?
6] But that is not his only headache.

The caliber of those who have followed him is worrying.

His bro from #Manicaland couldn't even answer whether or not Chamisa was till his Pres.

#PeterMoyo confusingly said he would still vote for Chamisa in 2023?

What witchcraft is this?
7] On that list, you can add Propositional MPs.
They are selected & have no political capital.

#Mwonzora himself last won any sort of election in 2008.

#Komichi isn't elected.
#Mudzuri lost 2018 primaries & was saved by his party.

What political capital do these people bring?
8] The new Pres, MaKhupe, got 45000 votes in 2018.

She is now supposed to be the Acting Pres of MPs she campaigned against.

She can recall them & replace them with the people they defeated.

She brings #Misihairambwi who has since between recalled by #Nyikadzino!

What is this?
9] These people also bring something unique.

The structures they now supposedly lead didn't vote for them in 2019.

They chose #Hwende over #Mwonzora.

Chose #Kore, #Biti & #Ncube over #Mudzuri & #Komichi.

Seems like its a group of the unelected.

Who are they leading really?
10] #Mwonzora should simply reflect.

Alternatively, he can listen to the #ConstitutionsMatter group, who are clapping as he reaches his political grave.

They are ignoring the fact that #Mwonzora has been unconstitutionally flexing his new found political muscles.

To what end?
11] #Mwonzora needs to reflect.

They say he is #mature & #calculating.

He can win many controversial #court cases, but ultimately, politics matters most on the group.

But what can he do now?

After all, isn't it true that once one goes far enough, they go all the way?

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.
