#mugabe’s cabinet reshuffle won’t get Zimbabwe out of the woods

via Bulawayo24 NEWS | Mugabe’s cabinet reshuffle won’t get Zim out of the woods 17 April 2014

Former deputy Justice minister Obert Gutu has dismissed recent speculation on President Robert Mugabe’s planned cabinet reshuffle saying the move would not improve the country in any way.

Gutu who is also MDC-T Harare provincial chairperson said the entire Zanu PF party was no longer fit to govern the country.

“The solution is not to be found in the proposed cabinet reshuffle. The entire system is no longer fit for purpose. It is beyond redemption. It is completely unable to extricate the nation from the present hell hole,” Gutu said.

“A peaceful, lawful and constitutional regime change that will ensure a systematic, holistic and structural overhaul of the entire State apparatus is the only solution. Anything short of this would be a monumental exercise in futility and grandiose self-delusion.”

The country’s economy has been on a downward spiral since last year’s controversial July 31 Zanu PF election victory.

MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai is on record accusing Zanu PF had rigged the election that was fraught with a number of irregularities.

Botswana President Ian Khama also attracted the wrath of Zanu PF after calling for an audit of the polls suggesting that the process had been manipulated by the revolutionary party.

    Roving, not only are they tactless, they are intolerant of dissent and use violence to maintain their grip on power; the very thing that Zanu p.f. is hated for.

    Both of you are right, perhaps even this reshuffle might include Gutu for towing the zanu line….or others, what do you think nelson?

    HONDO yakapera kare kare. What we need now is good governance kwete kudzwa matuzvi ekuti takarwa hondo. Kana makarwa makaihwina here kana kuti kwete. The truth is NO. Hapana hondo yamakarwa mukahwina that is why the word Smith still comes to people’s minds. Ende futi kuenda kuMoza does not mean kuti wakarwa hondo. Vamwe venyu maitiza mhosva dzamainge mapara uyezve vazhinji vakarwa hondo vakafa kare kare. With our like expectancy how many WAR vets do we have surviving now?

    True what; Zim has needed for decades, not only now, is “A GOVERNMENT RESHUFFLE”.

    Anything less that is never meant for national benefit – as usual it can only for Mugabe’s own personal benefits. It will be as usual, promotion of friends & relatives and demotion of erstwhile friends who, for one reason or another, might have lost favour with the Zanu Pf god @ the given time. Shame!
