MDC leader, Nelson Chamisa has proved to be the most coward politician of all times as far as Zimbabwean political history is concerned. This follows his egocentric decision not to join other political parties under the Political Actors Dialogue (POLAD) in the country.

The end of the 20th century came with global hopes for a new world order. In Information Technology  (IT), people fretted that computers would fail to understand the algorithims of the new century,which coincided with the arrival of the third millenium. The last quarter of the year 1999 was a busy lot,  computer abilities were the next most talked about topic after the death of Joshua Nkomo who had died the winter of the same year. The computer industry coined the term Y2K. Whatever its meaning, it referred to computers with the ability to read beyond 31 December 1999. Some screamed that all the computers were to be obsolete come new year's day. People expected dumpyards of computers to flood by the hour.

The MDC secretary general, Charlton Hwende and the party’s secretary for elections, Jacob Mafume are revelling in their positions which they landed during the party’s May 2019 congress. The clowns are, however, sitting uneasily on their heads as the party’s largely restive and youthful members are cranking up pressure on the two following the MDC’s poor showing during the string of by-elections held in various constituencies and wards across the country last year.

Renowned African-Nigerian writer Chinua Achebe is well known for his famous novel, A Man of the People, which mirrors Nigerian political culture through the eyes of a corrupt politician, Chief Nanga. Closely reading the book now, one can’t help but wonder if those negative depictions didn’t have an inverse intended impact on its recipients, giving birth to Zimbabwean politician, Saviour Kasukuwere, who has turned out to be a replica of Chief Nanga - a womanizer, corrupt, power hungry and nepotistic in nature. Nanga was also a violent fellow who terrorised his perceived political opponents, who only lost his parliamentary seat after the army intervened to stop his political madness.
