It is almost 2 years before the 2023 harmonized elections and we still have the MDC Alliance going notches up on their rhetoric of the allegedly stolen 2018 Presidential election. The chorus has become a substance of relevance for the opposition foregoing a plethora of responsibilities they shoulder after garnering a reasonable amount of votes.

Zimbabwean youths have taken the agriculture industry seriously, making it more attractive to other young people, in the process helping to create decent employment opportunities for them, both in rural and urban areas.

A poor workman always blames his tools because to him, it is permanently some else’s fault that he has failed. The Movement for Democratic Change Alliance (MDC-A) leader, Nelson Chamisa, is such one “poor workman” who has become quite the expert in finger pointing as he himself is ‘Mr Perfect.’

The Zimbabwean youth will never again know a political let-down as big as the beleaguered MDC-A leader, Nelson Chamisa, whose reins at that party has brought unimaginable drama punctuated by immaturity, untamed arrogance and ultimately the demise of the political outfit. In short, Chamisa has dramatized the famous ‘Things fall apart’ by Chinua Achebe.

Since October 2017, over 700 civilians have been killed in attacks in Cabo Delgado province, northern Mozambique. At times the attacks were claimed by the Islamic State, an armed group or other militants hailing from Kenya and Tanzania who have joined a home grown group called either Ahlu Sunna Wal Jama or Ansar al-Sunna (ASWJ) (meaning ‘supporters of tradition’). That group is often locally called Al-Shabaab, but it has no practical connection to the Somali rebel organisation.

ASWJ is reportedly fighting for the emancipation of that part of the country it feels has been neglected by the central government in Maputo for decades. To feed the movement, the rebels rely on local Muslim population that share the same marginalisation and underdevelopment narrative with it.

Growing up in the dusty streets of Chinotimba in Vic Falls, we used to read a lot about martyrs who sacrificed themselves for the greater good. These included St Bartholomew, St Lawrence, and a host of other white man’s martyrs. No racism intended, but the tutelage on martyrdom was heavily steeped in colonial definitions of martyrdom.

It wasn’t easy. It took an intrepid leadership in the name of the New Dispensation (ND) to institute unpopular decision and policies to halt the spread of the deadly coronavirus.

Zimbabwe’s opposition politics is full of absurdities. It defies logic. In a normal polity, which has a vibrant democracy, where opposition political parties are allowed to practice politics freely, there is logic to political rivalry with incumbent governments.
