…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.

The world has been battling with the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19) that has sadly resulted in the death of more than 8000 people, across the globe. The World Health Organisation (WHO) declared coronavirus a global emergency, as the virus was rapidly spreading outside China. Since then, various bodies and institutions such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF), has pledged US$1 trillion, to assist those affected, especially developing countries. The World Bank committed to provide US$12 billion to developing countries to mitigate the impact of the outbreak.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has always preached about unity of purpose for us to succeed as a nation. This is the same philosophy that the ZANU PF has used for time immemorial and has yielded results every election period. This is the lesson the MDC is failing to grasp as it continues to suffer heavy defeats in by-elections and blaming their losses on alleged rigging by the ruling party, which they can’t substantiate by the way. As we speak, the party is mired in escalating tensions as the MDC leader, Nelson Chamisa is trying to consolidate his position from vultures who are circling his throne with a view to take over.

The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) has over the years gained notoriety for being serial cry-babies. Their latest whining tune is on the issue of what they are calling the shrinking democratic space in the country, but evidence on the ground definitively rubbishes this claim.
