Chamisa's violence streak

Chamisa's violence streak
Published: 20 January 2019 (262 Views)
MDC-Alliance president Mr Nelson Chamisa - who is easy bedfellows with the NGOs who are doing his bidding - has even been intimating that the MDC-Alliance has the capacity to take up arms.

During a press conference in the capital on August 3 last year, Chamisa said: "We do not believe in violence even if we have the capacity to resort to arms."

His threats to make the country ungovernable were a running thread throughout his election campaign rallies before the July 30 harmonised elections.

It is believed that the youthful politician is trying to use his shock troopers, most of whom are housed under the umbrella of the Vanguard, as leverage to force a political settlement that will catapult him to State House.

So far, Mr Chamisa has used the Vanguard, which has since morphed to become a seemingly paramilitary outfit, as a handy tool to advance its political designs in the MDC, particularly after the death of leader Mr Morgan Tsvangirai on February 14 last year.

Most notably, six days after Tsvangirai's death (on February 20), during his burial in Buhera, the MDC youths harassed and attacked then-deputy president Dr Thokozani Khupe, legislator Lwazi Sibanda, MDC-T secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora and several others.

The youths even tried to set on fire the hut in which Tsvangira's former second-in-command had taken refuge.

Dr Khupe survived subsequent targeted attacks on March 4 last year when the youths launched another volley of attacks on Dr Khupe's offices in Bulawayo, which destroyed property and injured many people in its wake.

The attacks continued until she was eventually elbowed out of the party.

It is understood that Mr Chamisa is now ranging his machinery on State security agents in order to invite international condemnation of the Government.

The various alliance partners, who have agreed to use social media networks as a potent force to organise and unleash their plans, were by last week frenetically uploading supposed images (most of which have been flagged as fake) of alleged atrocities committed by State agents.
