New Zimbabwe Team Ready For Walkover












As the split in Zanu PF becomes pronounced with the expulsion of Dr Simba Makoni from the Politburo and the selective prosecution of deputy youth minister, Savior Kasukuwere, Morgan Tsvangirai has been parading his preparedness to go into elections.

He paraded his team of candidates – one for every constituency in the country when they had gone to Harare for their orientation as candidates.

The Zimbabwe Republic Police Anti-Corruption team seems to be under orders to go after anyone who is associated with the internal rebellion in Zanu (PF), which is apparently being led by Dr Makoni.

MDC, People Vs Makoni and the Unknowns

ImageTwo former Mugabe cabinet ministers have now openly rebelled against him since 1980 from within the party - Simba Makoni and Edgar Tekere. Like Tekere in 1989, Makoni is alleging that all problems Zimbabweans suffer today are as a result of bad national leadership which wants to rule forever.

Tekere fell out of Mugabe and he tried to punish Mugabe by contesting him at the elections to become president despite being pardoned for murder by Mugabe. Tekere was supposed to hang as he had been convicted for murdering a white farmer. Tekere’s presidential bid failed and the political party he formed called ZUM has since run out of steam.
