1] Some of us who come from the ghetto will always say:

"if you can't say it to my face, i don't believe you".

The presser by #MaKhupe and co was just empty rhetoric.

Everyone looks brave when they feel safe.

It's only a matter of time when this charade will be exposed. Image
2] Its embarrassing desperation for #MaKhupe to claim Leadership over 103 MPs when she has 2.

Even stupid people know that the MDC-T was rejected by voters.

That rejection cannot be cured by legal technicalities.

It's even embarrassing for #Mwonzora to be part of this madness.
3] #MaKhupe continues to expose her naivety & #Leadership deficiency.

To argue that she is to the #MDC-T what #JohnStenheisen is to the #DA after the exit of #MusiMaimane is a joke that's not funny.

There was an undisputed #Leadership succession in the #DA.
4] #Mwonzora exhibits dangerous desperation by saying the voters that #Khupe has inherited where institutional.

Which institution?

The Khupe #MDC-T got more votes than hers.

There were more spoiled votes than #MaKhupe's 45000

#Chamisa got more votes that both #MDC-T & #MDC-A!
5] Its total hogwash to say by virtue of the #SCJudgement, #MaKhupe is now Leader of 103 MPs.

How many votes did the MDC get inside the ALLIANCE?

How do you conclude that the ALLIANCE votes belong to the MDC-T?

The people who voted for the MDC-A are being taken for a ride.
6] #Mwonzora's pathological lies camouflaged as political bravado should be exposed.

Forget about making a 40 year old who allegedly almost burnt you in #Humanikwa in 2018 #YouthChair, who made up the 2014 #MDC-T #StandingCommittee meeting quorum?

7] MDC-A supporters should organize & challenge this madness.

They cant be given a Leader they rejected.

They cant be taken to POLAD by that same Leader.

She equally can't preside over MDC-A in whatever form.

These embarrassing contradictions can't be tolerated for 2 seconds.
8] But back to the fake bravado, the lockdown won't last forever.

Its a matter of historic fact that #Mwonzora last won any sort of election in 2008.

So did #Mudzuri, #Khupe, #Komichi etc.

Noone is underestimating them.

They are just overestimating themselves.
9] Hon #Mashakada, don't patronize people.

Former #StudentsUnion Leaders didn't hijack the MDC.

How can they hijack their own party?

This "chinhu chedu" mgodoyi revisionist narrative of pushing #StudentUnions to the periphery, over the formation of the MDC in 1990 is pathetic.
10] The MDC,historically known as Labour backed party has never belonged to Labour Unions.

It was formed by an ALLIANCE of bodies which included Labour, Students, Women, Churches, Civil Society, Farmers, Lawyers etc.

No one group can ever steal it.

The MOVEMENT belongs to all.
11] But it is to be expected that when individuals begin exhibiting political fatigue, they see colleagues as enemies.

Those who have nothing more to offer except seniority should retire & leave the #Leadership to a new #generation.

The #MOVEMENT can't belong to one generation.
12] The MDC of Chamisa should multi-task.

Push back whilst pushing forward.

The supporters cannot leave their battles to courts & boardroom meetings.

They have been left quite for too long.

Political dwarfs in long robs have made enough noise.

Organize & Respond.

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.
