"ZANU-PF is under siege. They are in a corner and this is a desperate act from a party that is losing power," Tsvangirai told the mourners at Christpower's funeral. "Power", that is all he ever thinks about and like Mugabe he too will happily see hundreds if not thousands more Zimbabweans lives lost in his ill advanced and reckless attempts to grab it from Mugabe.
Well that is true, Mugabe is under siege and losing power but has not lost it yet. So how many other innocent lives is Tsvangirai going to sacrifice in his mad rush to seize power from Mugabe. If Tsvangirai had implemented the reforms Christpower would be alive today.
If people vote yes(which is what Tsvangirai is asking the people to do) and the elections then go ahead, there will be a lot of limbs broken and a lot more lives lost. A no vote will force the implementation of the reforms and save the nation the agonies of yet another bloody election. When is Tsvangirai going to put the lives of ordinary Zimbabweans above his own selfish ambitions of being president?
“This has to end, starting with the arrest of the people who committed this heinous crime," said Tsvangirai. He said he could not vouch for Mugabe's sincerity when calling for peaceful elections.
Over 500 were murdered in 2008, how many of those responsible were ever arrested? Indeed if MDC has pursue those responsible those responsible and they were arrested that could have ended the country’s culture of political impunity behind of these political crimes.
Tsvangirai has been campaigning for a yes vote on the strength than Mugabe will keep his word to keep the peace (having failed to secure that by more traditional methods of having a strong constitution and implementing the reforms). Now that his lies have claimed their first victim he admits that he could not vouch for Mugabe’s sincerity; what a hypocrite!
