By A Correspondent- Former Zanu PF Youth League political commissar Godfrey Tsenengamu said his party would perform better than President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s Zanu PF.
He announced this Tuesday in Harare at the launch of a new political party that he said he will lead on an interim basis.
Tsenengamu said the Front for Economic Emancipation in Zimbabwe (FEEZ), with green as its main colour, will compete for political space with the ruling Zanu PF and the main opposition MDC Alliance.
“Knowing that the current condition we face today is not natural phenomena but a product of unjust economic practices by organised blood-sucking economic vampires, cannibalistic cartels, corrupt, selfish and heartless capitalists and monopolists, I have together with some here decided to take a stand giving up the comfort and luxuries of our past associations to fight with many others for the sake of generations of current and the future,” he said.
We have so much confidence in the revolutionary capabilities of ordinary human beings to accomplish this.
Tsenengamu vowed his party would campaign for a “successful execution of an economic revolution” adding that Zimbabweans had become “a sloganeering, politicking and voting populace paying less attention to the economic issues.”
He criticised the fast-track land reform programme which he said had merely taken land from a white minority and given it to “an indigenous minority, largely a clique that associates with Zanu PF.”
Tsenengamu said President Emmerson Mnangagwa had come up with “sweet-sounding promises and pledges” to deal with corruption, yet he and his party “have done the opposite by protecting and befriending the corrupt.”
He railed against the Zanu PF government’s dealings with Chinese investors, claiming “authorities seem to have committed to handover the ownership of our God-given natural resources to foreigners who are on a looting spree with the aid of the government and leadership.”
Tsenengamu said neither Zanu PF nor the MDC Alliance offered a viable alternative to get Zimbabwe out of its political and economic crisis.
