Mnangagwa drowning 'slowly but surely'

The New Dispensation which has become the New Desperation, has totally failed in all its election mantras and promises that it had promised to the general public at large. Those in the political circles of power both inside and outside Zanu Pf led government have failed to explain the major reasons why the so called New Order or Disorder has failed to make an impact since the ouster of former President Robert Mugabe, in my own personal analysis I still maintain the theory that Chiwenga and his army compatriots have ruined all the good prospects of ED which he had for Zimbabweans. Zimbabweans expected much from the President Mnangagwa led government but whenever the man is busy in his re-engaging process something terrible always happens which drastically destroys out all his efforts especially at international level. President Mnangagwa might actually need a second operation restore legacy which is necessary in removing Chiwenga and his uneducated military cabals, if they is any chance of him surviving up to June 2018. President Mnangagwa is a lone fighter and soon he is going to see himself at the deep end where he cannot recover, complacency poor domestic policies have cripple his already rusted government.

Re Engagement Process
With little success the President of the Republic has failed dismally to woo the urgently needed FDI to the extent that he had to tour countries such as Guinea Bissau, Kazakhstan and other economical irrelevant countries which cannot even resuscitate Gweru as a city, his desperation shows his zeal but where did the man really went wrong in all his international re engagements. ED probably messed up during and after elections, during elections he rigged the vote and after elections his government killed six innocent civilians which if one joins those two scenarios they is nowhere out for the fearless crocodile to be bailed by the international community. No country especially European powers would like to bail such a brutal and illegal regime which actually came to power via a back door of a disguised military coup. Mnangagwa knows that he rigged elections and he is an illegitimate president.

Chiwenga's Madness
If they is a man who is going to sink ED slowly but surely is his second in command Vice President Chiwenga, this man has destroyed ED so bad that Mnangagwa won't recover from the actions that have been paraded by Chiwenga, without doubt this man is the one who controls the army and the army has been responsible for the killings of innocent citizens. The Zimbabwean Army has been blamed not just for killing innocent citizens but for brutality and rape in the recent stay away which became so violent. The Mnangagwa led government has received condemnation internationally especially for the brutality which the army has been on rampant doing. Chiwenga fired the nurses and letter suspended the doctors surely this man has been practicing ‘barracks politics' which has destroyed ED to the core. With all this madness of Chiwenga ED is only left with his front tooth which are becoming useless in solving Zimbabwe's current crisis.

Foundational Crisis  
As much as I can see no light at the end of the tunnel for ED, surely the man inherited a rotten state which however he was part of the team that destroyed the once flourishing bread basket of Africa, President Emmerson Mnangagwa will be lucky to survive the mounting crisis in Zimbabwe by June 2019. The proposed political dialogue will not materialize and the once feared Midlands political godfather's days in office are severely and brutally numbered, demonstrations will resume soon and ED will escape the country for the second time into political exile, the way former Burkina Faso President Blaise Compaore escaped his native country after the citizens burned the Burkina Faso Parliament, Zimbabweans have no option than to kick out ED out.
