Chamisa must remove pastoral jacket

WHY does MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa continue to seek re-course at the courts that are captured by Zanu-PF? Why does Chamisa dream of participating in the 2023 presidential elections that are already rigged in favour of Zanu-PF?

Why is he not learning from the past mistakes of the late MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai? Why is Chamisa surrounded by a group of lawyers and politicians that lead him astray?

Why can't he see that his party is being destroyed and do something about it? Why is Chamisa too blind to see that he is losing it slowly and yet he still says he has the numbers?

Why can't he see that President Emmerson Mnangagwa is using the COVID-19-induced lockdown to destroy him once and for all? Why is he still asking for permission from the police to stage demonstrations?

Why does Chamisa continue to ask for help from the Africa Union and Southern African Development Community knowing that these are political clubs of tyrants and dictators?

Why despite Chamisa's members being abducted, raped, tortured and arrest-ed he continues to reply via Twitter? Why did Douglas Mwonzora, Morgen Komichi, Elias Mudzuri and recently Tapiwa Mashakada and other MPs desert him? And doesn't he see anything wrong with that?

I don't hate Chamisa, but he lacks the political stamina that Tsvangirai had. The MDC Alliance part is slowly dying a natural death yet Chamisa still claims to have the numbers.

I still remember former Zanu-PF member Jonathan Moyo telling Chamisa that only a revolution could remove Zanu-PF from power. I have nothing personal against Chamisa, but it's time he removed the pastoral jacket and put on a mafia jacket.

Chamisa must be aware that Zimbabweans have suffered a lot, thus they need leadership that takes charge of matters from the front to bring meaningful change. It is now or never.
