Nelson Chamisa lost the plot when he naively surmised that youthfulness would be a passport  to victory using his generational consensus concept to appeal to the youth vote. The thrashing of the MDC Alliance leader at the recently harmonized elections proves beyond reasonable doubt that maturity and experience matters for one to lead our beloved Zimbabwe.

Last week, the United States (US) President, Donald Trump signed into law the extension of the 2001 Zimbabwe Democracy and Economic Recovery Act (ZIDERA), which that country enacted to punish Zimbabwe for reclaiming her land from a minority of 400 former white farmers for redistribution to the needy majority. Using the law the US introduced an illegal sanctions regime against Zimbabwe outside the purview of the United Nations (UN).

Now that Washington chose to renew the economic restrictions on Zimbabwe with Trump signing into effect the revised version of ZIDERA, it is not the politician but the ordinary citizen who will experience the harsh reality of these sanctions.

The move that was taken by the MDC-Alliance supporters, early this month to demonstrate against the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, (ZEC), criticising it, of failing to announce the Presidential election results at their convenience and claiming the elections were rigging was a well-orchestrated manoeuvre to discredit the polls they knew they would not win.

On 30 July, Zimbabwe went to the polls which were tightly contested with a registered record of 23 Presidential hopefuls. Of these, there were two top horses, President Emmerson Mnangagwa (ZANU PF) and Nelson Chamisa of the MDC Alliance. The outcome saw President Mnangagwa romping to victory with 2 460 463 votes (50.8 percent) and Chamisa managed 2 147 436 votes (44.3 percent).
