'Zanu PF cannot be dislodge,' admit insane Biti, in a fleet moment of sanity

'Zanu PF cannot be dislodge,' admit insane Biti, in a fleet moment of sanity
Published: 19 May 2017 (443 Views)
"Even on a day turned night by the black clouds, the sun will sometimes break through or be it for a fleeting moment!" my late mother, full of proverbs, would say. "You must always listen careful to everyone and never prejudge, because even the certified insane have their sane moments!"

As politicians go, Tendai Biti, as with all the other MDC politician of the GNU, is certified insane not if or but about that! In failing to get even one democratic reform implemented in five years of the GNU Tsvangirai, Biti and the rest of the MDC leaders proved beyond all reasonable doubt that they are insane.

They are corrupt, President Mugabe bribed the MDC leaders with the trappings of high office, generous salary and allowances for all MDC leaders, tinted glass limos for all the senior leaders, ministerial posts galore as the seize of the usually bloated government swelled from a mouse to an elephant, a njambanja seized farm for Welshman Ncube, a $4 million mansion for Tsvangirai, etc., etc. All the MDC leaders had to do in return was kick the reforms into the tall grass and that is what they did.

Yes, MDC leaders are corrupt but whoever said the insane are not corrupt too, especially when the consequences of the failure to implement the reforms that they lost their gravy train privileges over night as the result of Zanu PF rigging the 2013 elections!

"The one self-evident conclusion is that in the short-term, ZANU PF cannot be dislodged. That despite its fractures, the opposition, even in a grand coalition, cannot dislodge Zanu PF," comment the otherwise certified insane Tendai Biti in one of the rare moments of sanity.

The rays of enlightenment did not last long enough to allow Biti to say why Zanu PF will win next year's elections. There are two competing schools of thought as to why President Mugabe and his Zanu PF party will win:

a) Those who say President Mugabe will win because he is loved and popular with the electorate.

Mugabe won the 2013 elections because he had "tangible deliveries to the electorate and has loyal supporters who stick to the values of the revolutionary party," argued two UK academics, Stephen Chan and Julia Gallagher, in the book.

Given that President Mugabe has failed to deliver even one new job out of the 2.2 million promised in his party's 2013 election manifesto and Zimbabweans are now the poorest in Africa, according to a recent AfrAsia Bank report. It is hard to see what these "tangible deliveries" are!

In his 37 years in power President Mugabe has murdered over 30 000 innocent Zimbabweans to establish and retain his one-party dictatorship.

So, why would Zimbabweans love someone who has made them suffer and murdered them?

b) Those who say Zanu PF will win as long as the elections are held in the present environment, with no reforms, so the party has the license to blatantly rig the vote.

Following the watershed 2008 elections in which Zanu PF rolled out its vote rigging machine in all its ugliness, everyone refused to recognised President Mugabe's 84% electoral victory as genuine expression of a free people. SADC forced President Mugabe to form a GNU which was then tasked to implement a raft of reforms to ensure future elections will be free, fair and credible and not a repeat of the barbarism of the 2008 elections.

Sadly, as noted above, the corrupt and insane MDC leaders failed to implement even one reform and so Zanu PF was once again able to rig the 2013 elections. The party has since made it clear it will not implement any reforms.

"You can't expect us to reform ourselves out of power," boasted Professor Jonathan Moyo, Zanu PF's self-anointed propaganda guru. He does not deny that the GNU failed to implement the democratic reforms to restore the people's democratic freedoms and human rights including the right to have a meaningful say in the governance of the country. Since when brutal repression and vote rigging to stop regime change at all cost become an absolute of the tyrant to trump the UN Universal Rights of the individual!

If the all too brief moment of Tendai Biti's sanity had lasted just another moment longer, I am convinced he would have told us that President Mugabe and Zanu PF would win next year's elections because the grand coalition, for all the hip and euphoria from all those promoting it, will do nothing to stop Zanu PF rigging the vote.

The opposition herd, know they need reforms but having failed to get any implemented have come up with all manner of counter measures which will do nothing to stop the vote rigging. Some even claim to have plan B. If their best plan, plan A, is to contest a flawed election; I do not want to know plan B!

The primary purpose of all these string of utter useless counter measures and stupid plan B, C, D, is therapeutic. The herd is painfully aware of the futility of contesting flawed elections only to lose them and so the useless counter measures, etc. are to suggest the circumstances of the 2018 elections are materially different from the 2013 elections and so they are not insane. All nonsense, of course, since it is implementing the reforms that will make the elections different.

If we want to stop Zanu PF rigging the elections and dislodge the regime then we must implement the democratic reforms; plain and simple.

Contesting elections you know are flawed and will be rigged again and again and expecting a different result, dislodge Zanu PF, is itself an act of insanity. There are nights when the lycanthrope, the werewolf, does not stir; the period when moon's influence on man, beast and the tide is at its lowest ebb; in that brief period, the insane may see the madness of their rat race world. They will be shocked coming face to face with their madness like a hideous monster staring at its own reflection in horror!

"ZANU PF cannot be dislodged! ZANU PF cannot be dislodged!" They will repeat over and over again until the strong sedatives finally take over!
