Dabengwa's three good lessons to Mnangagwa faction

According to news and Bulawayo24 News, his honourable, ZAPU President Dr Dumiso Dabengwa gave the pro Mnangagwa negotiators a tough assignment when they were begging him and ZAPU to support their faction by promising him a vice President post in their inclusive government during post Mugabe era.

Dabengwa is quoted saying that the Mnangagwa faction must first bring all ZAPU properties which were seized by ZANU. He further on said they must tear off the  Unity accord document which was signed by JMN Nkomo and RG Mugabe in 1987 then finally he did not accept to lead ZAPU to regional politics set by ZANU and he said his party is not a regional party.

These are visionary words from a leader who has maturity in politics and Mnangagwa led faction must not beg ZAPU to fight their factional wars.

ZAPU is not for sale and not desperate to seek parliamentary seats through Mnangagwa (lacoste) faction. ZAPU depends on the masses who will cast their votes and elect its candidates through ballot box.

Coalition with the Mnangagwas is like adding salt on an open wound and I would like to add the fourth condition on top of Dabengwa's conditions.

"The Mnangagwa faction need to arrest all Gukurahundi perpetrators, expose them, charge them  and tell them to compensate the Gukurahundi victims" By doing all those things then they come out of ZANU provided Mnangagwa resigns and confess all what he did to the Matabeleland people during Gukurahundi, mention how many people he killed with his North Korean trained brigade then he must also compensate the families who lost their loved ones.

To sum up, its hard to mix oil with water because no solution is going to occur.
