Letter to the Editor A bloody election looming in Zimbabwe
Now that the referendum is over, the upsurge of political violence throughout the country is predictable and can only surprise political upstarts and those Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) functionaries who were living in the fool’s paradise thinking that a leopard has changed its spots.
The allegation that the police raided and arrested Prime Minister’s staff members for allegedly possessing “subversive materials” on March 18, 2013 should be an indictment to those who thought that the 2013 harmonized elections would be peaceful. If the office of the incumbent prime minister can be raided like that, then only God knows what awaits common people like me.
There is no doubt that the battle lines between ZANU PF and the mainstream MDC are being re-defined to mark the end of the marriage of inconvenience, which consummated in February 2009. That this is taking place even before the results of the much harped constitutional referendum are announced should be a sign of what is to come.
If MDC activists campaigning for the ‘Yes’ vote in the run up to the referendum were assaulted in Mbare at a time when all the political parties in this inclusive government were in agreement about the draft constitution, what is going to happen when the President proclaims the date for the much-talked about elections? If innocent children like Christpowers Maisiri can be allegedly
allegedly slaughtered by his father’s political enemies at a time when the country is not in an election mode, what is going to happen when the politicians begin to electioneer?
Those who were assisting enemies of democracy to decimate the civil society and the labour movement under the inclusive government should start to smell the coffee. It is a mark of being unwise for a political party that came from these institutions toforget where they came from so soon as the two formations of the MDC are doing. They unfortunately went to bed with the devil and they must not cry when they fall pregnant as they surely will.
Criticising Majongwe, Madhuku and Gwisai for being principled in attacking a bad constitution is also unfortunate for the MDC. One of the top officials in one of the MDC formations had the audacity of labeling other people as “unintelligent and dull” simply because they decided to differ with him. Is democracy not about respecting other people’s views?
The latest developments are a wake-up call to the two MDCs that a crocodile will always be a crocodile; it is only a foolish fisherman who can take it for a friend. They must brace for more as we count down to the watershed elections.
