  • Zanu PF blatantly rigged the 2018 elections and all the respectable elections observers have said so. The election process is full of irregularities, flaws and illegalities. ZEC failed to produce a verified voters’ roll and failed to release all the vote count summary sheets, the V11 forms; although these are legal requirement, for example. The most logical thing to have happened is to tell Mnangagwa and his junta that they must step down because they do not have the democratic mandate to govern.

    Instead of clear cut decision and demand for Zanu PF to step down the nation has been thrown into confusion because of the confused position of the MDC Alliance. Whilst the MDC Alliance has accepted the result of the parliamentary race the party has refused to accept the results of the presidential race. How MDC A came to this conclusion is a mystery since the same flaws and illegality in the process affected both races.

    To make matter worse, MDC A are now claiming that the party’s own result of the presidential race is the correct one and Nelson Chamisa should be declared the winner. MDC A failed to produce all the V11 forms to justify their result, they expect everyone to take their word for it.

    The world should not be surprise that Nelson Chamisa and his MDC A friends are mudding the political waters; they have proven beyond all doubt that they are corrupt and incompetent. Remember they failed to implement even one reform during the 2008 to 2013 GNU. And they took part in the last elections even when it was clear ZEC had failed to produce something as basic as a verified voters’ roll.

    Zimbabwe’s corrupt and incompetent opposition camp has long seized to be part of the solution, they are now part of the problem. Hence the way forward for Zimbabwe is to demand that Zanu PF steps down and to completely ignore the MDC A. Appoint a new interim administration that will be task to implement the democratic reforms necessary for free, fair and credible election and then hold frsh elections.
