Zim cannot rehabilitate under Mnangagwa

Our northern neighbour Zimbabwe is always in the news, mostly for wrong reasons. Since the announcement of the so-called harmonised elections last week, Zimbabweans are busy fleeing the country.

Mmegi Online :: Zim cannot rehabilitate under Mnangagwa








Despite declarations from international observer missions to the contrary, opposition says the brutal Emmerson Mnangagwa rigged the polls and he is now a president-elect.

Six people lost their lives last week Wednesday after the Zimbabwe Defence Force (ZDF) opened fire on protestors believed to be opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) Alliance sympathisers.  Mnangagwa and his ZANU-PF did not stop there. They have since deployed the army to beat up poor civilians in Harare townships.

The victims’ crime is being sympathetic to the MDC Alliance. It is feared that some may have been secretly killed and abducted. It does not stop there as prominent leaders of the main opposition parties are also targeted for harassment.

This week one of the leading MDC Alliance figures Tendai Biti and others fled Zimbabwe to the neighbouring Zambia to seek asylum. The government is accusing Biti of inciting post-election violence in Zimbabwe. His application was denied but his lawyers challenged the decision thereby keeping him there, albeit temporarily.

It has been reported that the Zambian authorities ignored the court ruling and deported the veteran opposition leader back to the brutal Mnangagwa regime. We have stated before that Mnangagwa who came to power last year after a bloodless coup against the long time

ruler Robert Mugabe, with the help of the military, cannot be rehabilitated.

Docile poor masses were cheering the soldiers led by General Constantine Chiwenga by we cautioned that these people cannot be trusted to rule Zimbabwe. We dismissed the operation that removed Mugabe that was code named ‘Operation Restore Legacy’ and ‘bloodless correction’ as a coup.

We cautioned that any rational being should never support any coup regardless of who was removed from power. It does not mean that we had a brief for Mugabe. No! We will never forget the crimes against humanity Mugabe committed with the assistance of the likes of Chiwenga perpetrated on the poor Zimbabweans for decades.

Mnangagwa and Chiwenga, just because they fought for the freedom of Zimbabwe against the White minority rule, cannot claim that they only the only best people suited to lead the once prosperous country. They played their part and they should respect the democratic wishes of the masses. The recent thievery of the polls by Mnangagwa should be treated with contempt it deserves. Zimbabwe deserves better, and Mnangagwa is not the right person to reform the country from decades of economic plundering.
