Mahlangu Burial Snub Haunts Tsvangirai

By Gugugu Magorila

MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai’s failure to attend the party’s deputy organising secretary and Nkulumane constituency MP Thamsanqa Mahlangu burial has nothing to do with the venues and characters that were claiming ownership of his body. 

It has a lot to do with prejudice and poor reading of politics on the part of the tired and clueless MDC-T president.

His absence at the funeral of one of the party’s greatest sons raises eyebrows of sincere and honest observers.
The split of the MDC in 2012 was as a result of tribal intolerance by MDC leaders.

He is one person who does not value knowledge and advice, someone who fears intelligent people around him.

People like MDC-T national chairman Lovemore Moyo will be thrown into the dust bin the same way he did to Kuwadzana MP Nelson Chamisa.

The party’s former vice-president Gibson Sibanda and its former secretary-general Welshman Ncube were correct to part ways with him.

Tsvangirai, Mavambo/Kusile/Dawn leader Simba Makoni, former vice-president Joice Mujuru and President Robert Mugabe are birds of the same feather that cannot be separated.

The 1987 unity accord signed between Zanu PF and PF Zapu is now in the dust bin and people like the ruling party’s secretary for Information Simon Khaya Moyo are on the knife edge without any security or guarantee of a long stay in Zanu PF.

Robert Mugabe is going to boot out all intelligent Matabeleland people who voted for his party.

Security forces is on the ground rewriting the 1987 unity accord.

How can a whole vice-president like Phelekezela Mphoko be whipped and silenced by First Lady Grace Mugabe?

I always laugh my lungs out whenever Tsvangirai talks of a possible alliance with Mujuru, a clear Zanu pf member who has made her position regarding Mugabe publicly known.

Makoni and Mujuru are Zanu pf projects thrown into the fray to delay the required political change.

Some of us are not too desperate for political coalitions or so-called reunifications with prideful institutions like People first or PDP.

Things are developing positively in the mdc led by Welshman Ncube and anyone thinking that he or she is bigger than our party should be medically examined.

Ncube should not waste time begging for partners, especially those in the mould of Mujuru, Makoni or Tsangirai. I will personally quit politics if any of those useless leaders come anywhere close.

I will never associate myself with tribalists even the rich and the so-called intelligent ones. Ncube has always stated that tribalists have no place in the mdc.
