ED rigged elections, per se, illegitimate and 'Chamisa holds the key' argue Biti - what a narcissist
Published: 06 September 2018 (272 Views)
Zimbabwe is in serious trouble already with unemployment at the dizzying heights of 90%, basic services such as clean running water and health all but collapsed and 75% of our people living on US$1.00 or less a day. The whole nation was hoping that the recent elections will mark a point of departure from the chaos of the past, it has instead confirmed that the lunatic are still in charge. As usual, they have no clue what they are doing but you would not know from all the silver-back gorilla posturing and chest-drumming.

"I hope wisdom can prevail, this country needs a dialogue, and Emmerson has to talk to Chamisa because Nelson holds the keys and that is fact," said Tendai Biti, the newly sworn in MDC Alliance MP Harare South.

"We are not talking about the government of national unity its nothing close to that, they must be discussions around the issues on legitimacy, there has to be discussions about state departure on militarization issue, issues on national healing reconciliation and inclusivity because we hold the keys we simply hold the keys. Emmerson must find it in his wisdom to talk to Chamisa because Nelson holds the key."

How can Nelson Chamisa hold the key to solving any of the nation’s mounting economic and political problems when he has already proven again and again to be breathtakingly corrupt and incompetent. Chamisa, Biti and the rest of the MDC leaders were in the 2008 GNU that failed to implement even one democratic reform in five years! And it was at their insistence that the nation was dragged into these flawed and illegal elections.

“Tsvangirai was stupid to take part in the 2013 elections with no verified voters’ roll. I will not make that mistake!” Chamisa said before this year’s elections. And yet that is exactly what he and his MDC friends did!

As expected, Zanu PF has gone on to blatantly rig these elections. Zanu PF denied 2 to 3 million Zimbabweans in the diaspora the vote for no better reason than that most of them support the opposition. The party used handouts and threats of beatings or worse from its proxies, Chiefs, rogue war veterans and the deployed 5 000 soldiers, to reduce rural voters to nothing more than serfs beholden to Zanu PF.

Chamisa challenge Mnangagwa’s win of the presidential race in the Con-Court. The evidence produced in the court showed series vote rigging. There were 16 polling stations in which two or three stations had exactly the same number of cast ballots and contestants had exactly the same number of votes, proof of multiple voting.

Of course, multiple voting and other vote rigging shenanigans would have been considerably reduced if not eliminated if ZEC had released a verified voters’ roll, the smoking gun, as is required by law. Of course, it was stupid to go into the elections without something as basic as a voters’ roll; more so for Chamisa since he was aware of MDC making the same blunder.

Right Honourable MP Tendai Biti is thrilled to bits to be back on the gravy train; he and others did not care that the elections were flawed and illegal as long as they are the lucky ones to win the few seats Zanu PF gives away as bait. He is now fighting for his colleague, Chamisa to have a seat too.

Tsvangirai’s . Con-Court food aid  the nation But rubbished Biti's claims saying the ruling party had the pedigree to run the economy without support from the opposition.

"The people of Zimbabwe hold the keys to their own economic development not an individual, the people of Zimbabwe gave a mandate to those that they want to lead them for the next five years, so it's not an individual who holds the key to economic development," came the rebuttal of Biti’s claim from Zanu-PF MP Ziyambi Ziyambi.

Materially, the people of Zimbabwe are poor, the poorest in Africa, but they are not poor mentally, at least not that stupid not to know that these Zanu PF thugs are corrupt and incompetent and that it is them who have destroyed the nation’s once promising economy. The only reason why Zanu PF has remained in power all these last 38 years is because the thugs cheat and even use wanton violence to make sure they win elections.

When President Mnangagwa promised to hold free, fair and credible elections, the whole nation held its breath and crossed its fingers in high hope. These would be the nation’s first such elections and thus marking a break from the nightmare of rigged elections and corrupt and tyrannical rule. President Mnangagwa did not keep his promise as he instituted the same vote rigging system that he, as Mugabe’s Chief Enforcer, had used all these years.

The people of Zimbabwe are devastated that Zanu PF blatantly rigged these elections, they know there will be no meaningful economic recovery because the same corrupt and incompetent thugs who landed the nation in this mess are back in charge.

The people view all these political gerrymandering by the MDC leaders, the shameless deceit on the part of the British, to get Chamisa and one or two others into this Zanu PF government as a total waste of time. A corrupt and tyrannical Zanu PF dictatorship that has blundered from pillar to post all these last 38 years will not be transformed into a competent and democratic regime by the addition of a few corrupt, incompetent and equally clueless MDC leaders!

After 38 years of rigged elections and the country sinking deeper and deeper into economic ruin the solution is as clear as daylight; to get out of this mess we must end this scourge of rigged elections. Tendai Biti is right to say this Zanu PF regime is illegitimate because it rigged the elections. Biti thinks the issue will be resolved by giving Chamisa and a few MDC leaders cushy ministerial posts; but that is to be expected of the corrupt and incompetent empty head. After 38 years of appeasing Zanu PF by letting the thugs get away with vote rigging we must now grasp the nettle and deal with this problem decisively.

Zanu PF thugs must be told in no uncertain terms that they rigged the elections and therefore they are illegitimate and, per se, they must step aside to allow the country to deal with this scourge of vote rigging. All those giving President Mnangagwa and his junta an hope that they can somehow get way with yet another rigged elections are not being helpful, to say the least!

Zimbabwe is in serious economic and political trouble and it needs serious solutions and not the same failed platitudes that landed us in this mess in the first place.
