Mujuru project is dead

I am yet to be convinced that Joice Mujuru is a force to reckon with and I would need someone from space to convince me that Didymus Mutasa's midnight phone call to Robert Mugabe was smart.

I am in pain to hear some echoes suggesting that Joice the unproven big sister should from nowhere be appointed a coaliton President or vice President which to me is damn nonsense and something that will never happen on this soil.

We are yet to know sister Joice Mujuru,some of us do not know her well though we were in Chimoio when the late Rex and Joy Mugari Mujuru tied the knot.

We were there during that private ritual when Joy was presented to the ancestors as Robert Mugabe's wife though in my christian face all was fictitious. There is no way we can compare people like Joice Mujuru and those in the league of the late Freedom Nyamubaya.

What is it that make you think that Joice Mujuru is anything above zero because the crowds are still very poor and doubts are on everybody's forehead. I hear that some diplomats from some Western countries think there is something hidden in Mujuru or there is something big that will come yet nothing will come except ashes. We are very far from believing Joice Mujuru, the only opposition figures that will make some sense are Morgan Tsvangirai, Prof Welshman Ncube, Tendai Biti, and Zapu leader Dr Dumiso Dabengwa not the CIO's masquerading as new or powerfull opposition parties.

Signs are that some people working with Mujuru today may go back to Zanu-PF any day from today.The Mujuru project is dead.

I now think that screening of political parties is very necessary to avoid or block Zanu-PF linked people like Marcelline Chikasha who should not be allowed anywhere near a coalition meeting. She is a CIO operative.

The opposition should start thinking seriously about this country, grudges and egos aside. This is not the time to talk about Joice Mujuru as a President or Vice president of the proposed coalition and any silly mistakes will collapse the opposition project.
