The political landscape of Zimbabwe often feels like a theatrical stage where drama unfolds daily, leaving citizens questioning the competence and integrity of their leaders.

The recent statement by a ZANU PF activist advocating for the extension of Emmerson Mnangagwa’s term of office until 2030 is yet another episode in this ongoing saga.

In any democratic society, the constitution serves as the cornerstone, outlining the fundamental principles and guidelines for governance.

However, it seems that for some within ZANU PF, the constitution is more of a hindrance than a document to uphold.

The push for the extension of Mnangagwa’s term blatantly disregards the constitutional provisions regarding presidential term limits, raising concerns about the party’s commitment to democratic principles.

A video circulating on social media captures the fervent plea of a ZANU PF activist, calling for Mnangagwa’s prolonged stay in power.

This level of flawed thinking within ZANU PF brings the question: Are the party’s actions driven by strategic planning or mere whims?

It’s no secret that politics often revolves around power dynamics, with leaders maneuvering to secure their positions of authority.

The push for Mnangagwa’s extended term could be interpreted as a move to consolidate power within ZANU PF, ensuring continuity and control.

However, such maneuvers risk alienating the populace and undermining the very principles of democracy that Zimbabweans strive to uphold.

Amidst the clamor for power and tenure extension, voices of reason must not be silenced.

Citizens have a duty to hold their leaders accountable, demanding adherence to the rule of law and respect for democratic institutions.

The call for Mnangagwa to step down at the end of his constitutionally mandated term reflects a desire for transparency, fairness, and genuine leadership within Zimbabwean politics.

In the grand narrative of Zimbabwean politics, the question of whether ZANU PF is full of dunderheads is subjective, with opinions varying based on personal experiences and observations.

However, what remains undisputed is the need for ethical leadership, adherence to the rule of law, and respect for democratic principles.

As Zimbabwe navigates its political future, the actions and decisions of its leaders will ultimately determine whether the label of “dunderheads” holds true or if a legacy of visionary governance can be established for generations to come.
