via Biti’s shilly-shallying | The Zimbabwean 16 July 2014 by Jera
If Biti is healthy then his fitness is only physical. His constant shilly-shallying – one moment he wants to form his own MDC Orange and then the next minute he wants to push Morgan Tsvangirai from MDC Red, a party to which he himself does not belong – raises questions about his mental wellness. Social networking sites are florid with before and after images showing Biti’s weight loss in the past year.
Whether Biti – a political nonentity at this point, really – is on the verge of death or fit enough to outrun Caster Semenya, frankly, is of little importance.
Zimbabweans will do well to focus on bread and butter issues. The country might be in a better place, if we as a nation put as much effort into national building as we do in cutting and pasting photos of Tendai Biti.
Of course, any such trivialities as Biti’s health will only please those who continue to hold 13million lives to ransom. While we speculate about Biti’s prescription drugs, this once beautiful country remains on life-support – if at all we have sufficient electricity to run such machinery.
