GNU: Zanu Can Contribute From Opposition Bench

Image Towards the end of 1989, we saw Robert Mugabe using all the dirty tactics to de-horn and decapitate ZAPU and ZIPRA amid allegations of dissident activities promoted by that party. ZAPU denied sponsoring so called dissidents, but it is widely believed that their activities were a indirect result of dissatisfaction among ZAPU cadres. Mugabe's Machiavellian machinery was unleashed against ZAPU and eventually it was sucked in by ZANU. ZAPU became no more - destroyed and buried.

After losing an election and refusing to go, Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe is now assembling snipers to assassinate opposition officials while also paying billions to those who succeed in actually killing an opposition activist, according to latest disturbing reports.

Verification of Presidential Results Cancelled?

graceThe Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) is now refusing to undertake the verification exercise which is part of Zimbabwean electoral laws, was called for by SADC at its emergency Summit on Zimbabwe three weeks ago and which ZEC chairman, George Chiweshe, had said would be undertaken. More on Grace overleaf.

When Chiweshe, a High Court Judge, announced the end of the recounting last week, he said the candidates and their agents would be invited to a verification exercise where the MDC and Zanu (PF) would present their figures and how they arrived at them – an opportunity to dispute the ZEC results.

Mugabe Steals The Election, Again

ImageAs expected Robert Mugabe's unilaterally appointed Zimbabwe Electoral Commission has given him the run-off that he wanted, now to be held in an atmosphere of fear and intimidation.

At least 20 people have been killed in retribution violence orchestrated by the government – with soldiers deployed to rural areas to lead an assault on all MDC activists and supporters in an operation codenamed Operation Makavhotera Papi (Who Did You Vote For).

GNU, A Diversion From Zimbabwe Results

ImageThe current calls for the formation of a Government of National Unity (GNU) to break the electoral impasse in the country is not only premature and ill timed but also shameless diversionary politicking that is aimed at buying time for Zanu PF to cobble other means to deal with its obvious annihilation at the 29 March harmonised elections.

For starters the call for a GNU is not as new as the Zanu PF zealots pushing for it would like us to believe. If anything it was a central theme for negotiation during the SADC mediated talks preceding the harmonised elections. It was Zanu PF which contemptuously dismissed it as irrelevant and an attempt by the MDC to worm into the corridors of power through the back-door.
