Mujuru 'was confined to her ivory tower' to stop Zanu PF misrule, says Mugwiji - case of insanity
Published: 13 February 2017 (141 Views)
"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." Said the great Physicist, Albert Einstein.

If one was to accept Einstein's definition of insanity then, if the truth be told, most of us are insane when it comes to certain matters. For many of us will admit to falling into the trap of doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. We all have our mental blind spots, moments of insanity; what matters how big is the blind spot and what are the consequences of the insanity!

As a nation one of our collective blind spot; constituting years of collective insanity with crippling economic, social and political consequences; is our holding rigged elections time and time again for these last 37 years expecting regime change. Whilst we are sane enough to appreciate the need for meaningful political change, regime change; we have a complete mental blockade, the insanity kicking in, when it comes to realizing we need to stop the vote rigging.

Whitlaw Mugwiji is one Zimbabwean who is otherwise a very rational person who, like most Zimbabweans out there appreciates the need for regime change in Zimbabwe but has a completely to appreciate the need to implement meaningful democratic reforms to stop Zanu PF rigging elections. As far as he is concerned we do not need reforms as long as we can unity the opposition!

"Instead of putting our little differences aside, we pick on and feast on each other's misfortune. As I write, social media is awash with opposition members celebrating the split of Zimbabwe People First (ZimPF) and enjoying the insults levelled against Dr Joyce Mujuru," wrote Mugwiji. See Nehanda Radio.

"In their little heads, they think the coalition is doomed and their positions are safe. They would rather bask in their little titles as opposition leaders than join hands with former enemies and remove Mugabe."

Whilst Mugwiji clearly believes that a strong opposition coalition is the panacea to defeating Zanu PF next year and is determined to make us subscribe to his belief. What he has completely failed to do, after all his ranting and raving, is produce a convincing case why the coalition will win where Tsvangirai and his MDC friends have failed. One of the reasons why the opposition coalition will not do any better is that Zim PF leaders, the new addition to the opposition camp, are as corrupt and incompetent as Tsvangirai and others.

The Bikita West by election results where Zanu PF once again deployed its usual dirty tactics and rigged the election with ease showed that ZimPF are as helpless as Tsvangirai at stopping the vote rigging. Last week ZimPF members started trading barbs accusing each other of being incompetent, confirming something many people have said all along, ending with the party splitting.

"I have watched several Joyce Mujuru interviews since the formation of ZimPF," admitted Mugwiji, "I cannot say I was impressed by her overall performance but I must admit I was impressed by her sincerity.

"My own impression of her is, she wants to make amends of the mistakes they made during her time in government. Having been confined in a Zanu PF ivory tower for over three decades, devoid of ordinary citizens and their everyday struggles she suddenly understands what the people of this country are going through."

Are we expected to believe that Mai Mujuru was confined in her ivory tower for 34 years, like some fairy-tale Princess, and in all those years she had no clue about the gross mismanagement, the rampant corruption and the murderous tyrannical oppression that destroyed the nation's economy forcing millions into a life of abject poverty and denied the people their freedoms and basic human rights including the right to a free vote and even the right to life!

No doubt Mugwiji will admit that Mai Mujuru and her late husband have amassed a great fortune valued in hundreds of millions of dollars, if not billions of dollars. So she emerged from her ivory tower to claim her lion's share of the looted national wealth. Her eyes were wide open to secure her share of the loot but she was blind to the consequences of corruption, political murderers, etc.! What a load of nonsense!

We are not going to end Zanu PF's corrupt and tyrannical rule by entrusting that task to corrupt and incompetent opposition politicians like Morgan Tsvangirai or Joice Mujuru even if they joined forces to form a grand opposition coalition. Recycling the same corrupt and incompetent opposition leaders will not bring any change, what we need is quality leaders with the common sense to realise that as long as Zanu PF is allowed to rig elections it is naïve to expect regime change!

Mai Mujuru and Morgan Tsvangirai have already proven that they are corrupt and incompetent; they have had 34 and 5 years, respectively, to transform Zimbabwe and failed to change anything. It is insane to elect them back into power again and hope against hope that they will deliver change!

Staying in the ivory tower blinded Mujuru for 34 years!
Anonymous user 13 February 2017
Most Zimbabweans took 20 years or so before they would accept President Mugabe was an incompetent and murderous tyrant although by 1987, seven years of Zanu PF rule, the regime had already murdered over 20 000 innocent Zimbabweans. Mujuru will have to commit a similar outrage for people like Mugwiji to finally accept she is corrupt and useless! The irony is he is supposed to be and intellectual, the cream of Zimbabwe society!
