1] Haven't said much about the proposed #31JulyDemo.

I'm still collecting my thoughts on the same.

My reservation is, there has to be an endgame.

A one day demo can simply become an inconsequential walkabout.

There has to be a clear plan before, during & after #July31stDemo
2] The reaction of the establishment to #July31stDemo is as predictable as next year being 2021

Soon, the organizers will be hunted & arrested

Soon they will make the Harare CBD a no go area

Infact, they have already banned the MDC-T EOC which was to be held on same date
3] Even in the unlikely event that the demo legally proceeds, the clampdown on the citizens will be harsh & brutal.

Even if that doesn't happen, what should happen, say on #August1st, for the demo to be labeled a success?

These are the critical pre-demo issues to be addressed.
4] Of equal importance is the key demand.

A demo should define itself

#FeesMustFall doesn't need interpretation
It's self explanatory

What is the key demand for #July1stDemo?

I've always said, we need to properly phrase the Zimbabwean question

Only then can there be progress
5] That being said, don't bother second guessing where i stand.

The spirited propaganda efforts at labelling the Opposition or those Leading the demo "childish & unproductive" was to be expected.

On it's own, the reaction signals progress.

The message is slowly being received.
6] The Opposition has no business making the incumbent feel comfortable.

How can a misbehaving ruling party tell the Opposition how to behave?

ZanuPF cannot tell the Opposition how to oppose it!

ZanuPF cannot be allowed to create the Opposition in its own image!
7] Its preposterous for Zanu to lecture MDC or any authentic Opposition on maturity & productive politicking.

In fact, by predictably invoking the involvement of the West, Zanu is questioning our collective ability to reason.

ZanuPF will always lecture & patronize Zimbabweans.
8] So that I'm clear...


The unrepentant ZanuPF leaders are the source of our problems!

Forget about electoral legitimacy, ZanuPF post July2018 now stinks of administrative illegitimacy!

If you couldn't do it in 40 years, then you can't do it PERIOD!
