“The time has come for all of us to understand that this whole talk of succession is a po-litical disease from which we need to be cured by simply understanding and following the constitutional and democratic process for attaining power,” weighed in Jonathan Moyo in the on-going fight for political dominance of Zanu PF by the Mai Mujuru and Mnangagwa factions. The two are lining themselves to take over after Mugabe.
“Following the constitutional and democratic process for attaining power;” I had to read it again to make sure I got that right! Since when has Zanu PF cared about following the constitution and democratic processes?
“What we have on the ground are not ideological factions driven by ideas or policy sub-stance, but we have some kind of mini-personality cults; factions based on support for individuals and not support for the party, that are content-free and that are ideologically bankrupt,” Moyo said.
What is Jonathan Moyo wittering about; what moral much less ideological standing does Mugabe have!?
Mugabe has just blatantly rigged the elections, denying nearly a million Zimbabweans their basic and fundamental right to vote, bussing his supporters from one polling station to the next so that they could cast ten to twenty votes each time, etc.
The election results showed that 27 out of the 210 constituencies had an impossible 100% plus voter turnout if one added the cast votes and those refused the vote. In Chipinge East the cast votes alone constituted 141% of the registered voters!
Mugabe employed the Israel company, Nikuv, to corrupt the voters roll so real voters would be denied the vote whilst Zanu PF supporters cast hundred or more votes each. Mugabe paid Nikuv a princely sum of $13 million for their “Judas kiss!”
All in all, Mugabe must have squandered at least $ 3 billion in rigging the July 2013 elections.
The spokesperson for the Ministry of Higher education told parliament the Ministry received only $50 000 out of its annual budgeted allocation of $ 380 million – that is less than 0.002%. It is not the only Ministry starved of funds, the problem is everywhere. .
So Mugabe not only rigs the elections but even sells the nation’s treasures to do it; starving it of even the bear essential of life. The tyrant is not just ideologically bankrupt and morally bankrupt too.
Jonathan Moyo is Mugabe’s self-appointed Chief Propagandist. His job is to portray Mugabe as a rational leader with very high moral and ideological standards. Who selfless sacrifice has served Zimbabwe from many terrible things these last 33 years.
The reality is that Mugabe is a corrupt and ruthless tyrant who destroyed the country’s economy and murdered over 30 000 to gratify his love for power and wealth. As far cry from the Mugabe Moyo and his fellow propagandists say Mugabe is but that is why it is called propaganda.
Of course Jonathan Moyo knows that neither Mai Mujuru or Mnangagwa have any moral stand-ing much less an ideological one. Moyo is flagging it now to remind the two that they too, like Mugabe, will therefore need the services of propagandists.
And who is the seasoned propagandists in Zimbabwe than Jonathan Moyo himself! This is a shameless self-promotion by the propagandist.
The Zanu PF dictatorship is on its last legs; Mujuru and Mnangagwa are fighting over a morally and ideologically bankrupt and degenerate political party. Zanu PF is in power because they rigged the elections; they party has got away with rigging elections in the past but not this time.
So what is Mujuru and Mnangagwa fighting over; to be the next illegitimate president!? And Moyo wants to be her/his Chief Propagandist.
Jonathan Moyo, like Josef Gobbles, the Nazis Chief Propagandist before him who talked of Na-zis victory even with the Russian Army inside Berlin City gates; Moyo talks of Zanu PF as if the party can ever be revived from the self-destruct path it has followed these last 33 years.
