MORGAN Tsvangirai is perhaps the best and well known opposition leader in the country. It is because of his bravado that saw the country’s opposition MDC gaining majority support and winning the majority of seats in parliament for the first time since independence.
The country is now facing a bleak future with no prospects of Zanu-PF turning around the economy. Tsvangirai has said he is the answer to the country’s economic woes. However, I am one of those who feel that the man from Buhera, Tsvangirai is not longer a solution. He is the same man who blundered while visiting German Chancellor, Angela Merkel.
As the Prime Minister of the country, his blunders surprised all and sundry and his reputation was ruined. If he failed to do basic things, standing behind his country’s flag, can he then be able to deal with the big task of reviving the economy?
The video is a clear description of Morgan Tsvangirai, he is a leader who will always be told what to do, he is a person who can not make a decision on his won. Therefore, how can he be able to serve Zimbabwe’s economy which is nose diving. I guess there are better people who can serve the economy not him.
The last kick of a dying horse is dangerous.
The above adage serves to show the extent which the so called leader of the big opposition party, Morgan Tsvangirai is doing.
I have been following the drama at Harvest house, MDC-T headquarters, unfolding where Tsvangirai was and is still the main actor. As the main actor, he has been seen by some sections of the media as the hero yet for me he is just a villain, which is worse, a poison for the country.
The movie which Tsvangirai is acting might actually signal his last days in the game of politics. For the past years, he has been a hero and a darling for many people. He has been viewed as the champion of democracy. For all his power, energy and verve people ended up calling “Save” as in Shona taking it from his totem.
This is the same man who used to drink coffee with Barrack Obama (US President) and sharing a table with Germany Chancellor, Angela Merkel. Most of the world leaders, especially from the West and America believed in him, trusted and he was the Zimbabwean new hero to an extent that he was once shortlisted for the Nobel peace prize, a prestigious prize for an individual who has done a wonderful job in his country.
However, all this glorious history of Save seems to be slowly fading as many people, including his allies from the West are also fade up. He has shown his true coulors. For some of us, we knew that Save, was not a leader whom you can trust because of his chameleon tendencies.
During the last watershed elections, he had promised to step down in the event that Mugabe wins the elections. The day came and passed, all is now history as Mugabe walloped the man from Buhera who is now refusing to honor his words.
All the noise that is taking place in the MDC-T camp is because of Tsvangirai refusing to step down. He still believes that he has still something to offer for the country. Surely, Tsvangirai must have lost his mind. His days are over, what he is now doing is simple causing confusion in the party and the opposition politics as well.
His move seems to be dangerous and thus might dampen people’s spirit in as much as participation in opposition political parties. The party is still in tatters. Through his actions, he seems to be looking forward to see the party falling down to its knees and breaking all the walls he built.
Truly the party is in a mess. This is despite claims by Tsvangirai that the dust had settled and MDC-T was now more united than ever.
Recently, Tsvangirai claimed at a media conference that the party’s problems were behind it.
“After a frank heart-to-heart session … I am proud to announce today that we have discussed issues and there is now unprecedented harmony and unity of purpose in the MDC cockpit.”
However, for Zim pundit, it is crystal clear that these are Tsvangira’s last days and if he is not warned, this might mark the death of MDC-T. For warned if armed!
