Since the 2018 Harmonised elections, ZANU PF as the ruling party in Government has been turning its Manifesto blueprint into deliverables. So much progress has been noted in such areas as road construction, housing, agriculture and information technology among others, ensuring that Vision 2020 of a middle income economy is achieved.

For a long time I have always smelt a rat in regards to the purported abductions by members of the MDC-A members` reportedly by state security apparatus, until I closely scrutinised the occurrence of the so-called abductions and the recent revelations by MDC member Tapiwa Mashakada that these were stage-managed only affirmed my conclusion.

…dilemma action & agenda setting at play

The confusionist approach that has been deployed by the MDC Alliance, using the dilemma action strategy and agenda setting, is a futile attempt to divert attention from the deepening cracks in that party and to distract Government from focussing on the fight against COVID-19 and keeping the economy ticking.

…implements dilemma action strategy

The MDC Alliance, in concert with Western embassies and civil society organisations, has resorted to civil disobedience and stage-managing abductions in a bid to deflect attention from the implosion in that party.

The embattled MDC leader Nelson Chamisa has found himself perched between a rock and a hard place in a game of political brinkmanship after the Thokozani Khupe-led MDC recalled four legislators from Parliament on 05 May 2020 as a fulfilment of a Supreme Court ruling that ordered the party's reconstitution to the 2014 structures.

The world has been plunged into one of the most trying times in recent history, with the outbreak of COVID-19 in December 2019 in China. Leaders worldwide have put their political differences aside to contain the marauding virus which has ravaged the socio-political-economic fabric like never before. Coming back home, defining events have been unfolding in the political arena to the extent of upstaging, at the local level, the deadly pandemic for the limelight.

It is now going onto a full month now since the whole country has been forced to live indoors like scared mice by the COVID-19 pandemic and during this time the most controversial ruling, to date, was passed by the Supreme Court involving the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC)’s power struggles.

For the first time in decades, the world is under siege from a global pandemic. The whole world has been brought to a standstill by the scourge of COVID-19. From Wuhan to Dotito, from New York to Soweto, the scourge has spared no one, rich or poor, black or white.

Zimbabwe is a democracy and that means that it can have as many political parties as it can carry, sadly, the main opposition party Movement for Democratic Change (MDC)  for the past 20 years is hell bent on self-aggrandisement at the expense of national growth.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has been crystal clear on his administration’s position regarding opposition politics defining it as the moral campus of the ruling party that brings in positive criticism and keeps the ruling party in line.

It is a shame really that the MDC has not taken up this national duty.

The MDC can, however, learn from the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) of South Africa. Even though they are a fairly young party in opposition politics they have exhibited tremendous levels of political maturity and national responsibility when compared to their local counterparts.

EFF is a home grown political party that was formed in 2013 by former African National Congress members led by Julius Malema, the fire breathing leader of the movement. Malema has stirred controversy for demanding the equal representation of the black masses of South Africa politically, socially and most importantly economically.
