Mwonzora rolling stone gathering no moss

HE seized Morgan Richard Tsvangirayi House with the help of the army, recalled members of Parliament who contested in 2018 on an MDC Alliance ticket and now wants to abandon the once Thokozani Khupe-led MDC-T and use the MDC Alliance banner to con-test the 2023 harmonised election.

The man is struggling to stand on his own. He and his masters still have an insatiable appetite to decimate the people's struggle.

This is an act of desperation.

Is this the politics of rational disputation which is being exhibited and paraded by Douglas Mwonzora?

The proof of the pudding is in the eating. At one time, the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation flighted an advert on behalf of Cold Storage Commission of a bull called Samson which was said to have the best beef in the country and that it could speak for itself.

So Mwonzora should not waste his energy and time by imposing himself on the people. Let his work do the talking.

MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa is a role model resonating well with Zimbabweans. He is the only politician in Zimbabwe who is in sync with modern political trends and dynamics.

Very soon Mwonzora will claim that Chamisa belongs to MDC-T. The man is not sellable.

Mwonzora must be reminded that it is not the name which attracts votes, but the brand of the leadership contesting. Gone are the days when people used to follow the name of a political party, for example Zanu-PF, Zum or Zapu. Mwonzora's aim is to confuse the electorate and split votes in favour of Zanu-PF, but only a handful will fall for his stupid scheme.

The people are aware of their leaders and the party which they want to see in power. If Mwonzora was a genuine op-position leader, he should have been reviving the fortunes of his party. It looks like he is running out of steam and losing grip as the country approaches the 2023 elections.

Mwonzora's political fortunes are waning very fast. How can an opposition fight another opposition and expect to win elections? Zimbabweans will consign him to political oblivion in 2023. People are patiently waiting for him in the ballot box not at Morgan Richard Tsvangirai House. The name itself has no power; power lies within the people. Sup-port is pivotal for the survival of any party or politician.
