The political circus that will never solve a problem.
for over 3 decades, looked invincible and seemingly united.
Only 15 months after the disputed plebiscite, ZANU PF has not only
failed the nation but has failed itself. The party is on the brink of
collapse and the leader Robert Mugabe has evidently lost control.
This have been made worse by the unexpected entry of his wife Grace.
The events of the past 2 weeks have raised several questions as to the
direction we are taking as a nation.
1. The so called 'Meet The People' rallies were evidently costly.
Who was footing the bills? Of what benefit were they to the citizens
since Grace holds no public office in government?
2. The economy continues to fail but that has been washed under the
carpet. Even the so called independent media has been caught up in
the frenzy, cheering from the sidelines. ZANU PF lost focus a long
time ago. Aren't we doing the same?
3. Where are the alternatives? It seems the other parties are also
in a lull. They only surface to comment on the drama going on in the
ruling party they (opposition) are yet to take any action to remedy
the situation. Is the opposition movement still viable or should
people just forget about politics altogether?
4. There accusations and counter accusations about corruption and
rent-seeking but there's hardly an arrest or investigation going on.
Why are these clowns reluctant to take any action? Isn't this
evidence that all are guilty and all belong to Chikurubi prison?
5. With the useless war intensifying and the pugilists proving more
stupid by the day, who will intervene? No sister country has offered
to mediate so who will? Are these losers setting us up for a coup?
It's most likely that the securocrats have an interest.
How will this circus end? Who will be the casualties other than the
people of Zimbabwe who bear the brunt of a failed economy? How will
WE the people bring sanity back into our failed political system?
