Opinion: Politics of the stomach choking Zimbabwe

About 90% of Zimbabweans are living under abject poverty and can barely afford a meal per day, while our political bourgeoisie are excelling every day in self-preservation. In that area, surely they deserve a place in the Guinness Book of Records.

It is really sad and beyond imagination to see democracy being shoved into the blast furnace with the aim of creating a one-party State.

Is recalling elected legislators by any chance going to solve or improve the country’s economic, social and political fortunes or it’s designed to create a Chinese model of politics through weakening opposition parties?

I think MDC-T leader Douglas Mwonzora is struggling to stand on his feet to lure voters after his party recalled several MDC Alliance MPs and councillors across the country. They are not even getting stronger.

Honestly, people are very much aware of the fact that this so-called new dispensation under the leadership of President Emmerson Mnangagwa has nothing to offer and is just there to decimate the opposition, and loot the country’s resources. The improvement of people’s lives Is not on the agenda, for now.

About 90% of Zimbabweans are living under abject poverty and can barely afford a meal per day, while our political bourgeoisie are excelling every day in self-preservation. In that area, surely they deserve a place in the Guinness Book of Records.

What is the reason for parading former MDC members who left active party politics a long time ago and have now defected to Zanu PF? Will voters take such candidates seriously or get tricked by their political posturing and grandstanding?

Most of these tired politicians who cannot match modern-day politics are gold hunters seeking to be accommodated into the Zanu PF gravy train.

These politicians were rejected by the people and could not access parliamentary privileges. They have now decided to find ways to feed themselves by partaking in the Zanu PF feeding trough.

The late MDC Alliance leader Morgan Tsvangirai had trusted political prostitutes dressed in sheep’s skins with influential positions who were eyeing broth.

The likes of Mwonzora, Thokozani Khupe, Obert Gutu, Tracy Mutinhiri, James Makore, Lillian Timveos, and all those who have dumped the people’s struggle are modern-day sellouts.

Those rejoining Zanu PF must be applauded for exercising their democratic rights, but they have eaten their last supper.
