Selfish Mujuru Blasted


Staff Reporter | Members of the Joyce Mujuru led National People’s Party have accused their leader of selfishly positioning herself in the planned coalition and dumping the party.

In a closed door party discussion last night, Bulawayo based party members expressed concern at Mujuru’s individualistic approach to the coalition claiming that she is not consulting with the rest of the party leadership.

The members who spoke to in confidence claim that Mujuru has never been keen to disclose any details of the deliberations she has been holding with MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai. According to the members, Mujuru was asked by the Interim National Executive Committee to avail details of the draft Memorandum of Understanding before it was signed with Tsvangirai and the document has never been made available.

The members further indicated that they were shocked to learn through the media that Mujuru and Tsvangirai had signed the MOU on the 19th of April when the initial party position was that the MOU was to be signed on workers day after the party’s congress set for the 28th of this month.

The members claim that Mujuru has always insisted on a coalition agreement that will see her and Tsvangirai agreeing on a single Presidential candidate in the 2018 elections and leaving parliamentary candidates to battle the ground against ZANU PF split between their parties a move which will expose the candidates to a split vote which may favour ZANU PF.
Incidentally, some MDCT members here also raised the same sentiments against Tsvangirai on the proposed coalition.

    It is necessary for MT to capture MUJURU now or else ZANU will offer her a place back in the party. ET come home … all forgiven. The kapentas who are trying to be whales in her party can be discarded. MT will offer her a VP position, leaving another VP post for an MDC member. This he will fulfill the need for a woman VP.

    Some opposition members have been trying to sell the idea that the coalition was necessary to unity the opposition so they can then tackle the big task of implementing the reforms. So these opposition parties have wasted the last four years talking about climbing this anthill and they still have not done it and time is running out for climbing the mountain.

    We need to have the reforms implemented or there must be no elections.

    Now it is clear the opposition have been talking about the coalition building just to give the impression they were busy doing something to take pressure away from the demands on them to push for the reforms.

    The people of Zimbabwe must wake up to the reality that the opposition politicians are not fighting in their corner, these coalitions even if they were finally agreed are not going to deliver free, fair and credible elections, which is what the nation want!

    Yes the kapenta is nothing compared to a whale and yet without the kapenta, shrimp, etc. there would be no tiger fish, whales, etc. Kapenta, shrimp, etc. are tiny but they are an important base of the food chain.

    Mai Mujuru is sitting pretty as the rock at the apex of the mountain but she must never forget that she would not be there if the billions of stones and rocks to say nothing of the billions of tonnes of earth and dust, forming the base were not there. Hard as it must be for her to do still she must stop behaving in her autocratic ways of her Zanu PF days.
