PM Tsvangirai met SA President Zuma on Sunday and will meet the Tanzanian President on Monday in his last minute effort to get SADC to force Mugabe to implement democratic reforms.
MDC shot itself in the foot by agreeing to by agreeing to a weak Copac constitution and to having it approved before the reforms were implemented. As expected, Zanu PF was going to turn to the new constitution as the blueprint for where the nation should be and refuse implementing any more reforms; which is exactly what Professor Jonathan Moyo, Zanu PF’s key strategist is now doing.
“The new constitution is the mother of all reforms. You cannot wish for better than that,” said Moyo. “As things stand today, there is no single issue which was previously claimed to be outstanding by any of the three GPA parties which did not find expression in the new constitution one way or another,” he added
Tsvangirai can tour all the SADC countries all he wants, the fact remains that once the Copac constitution is signed into law Zanu PF will wave it in the SADC Heads' faces and remind them that it was approved by 95% of the people and it does NOT call for any of reforms MDC is now asking for!
Tsvangirai should have thought carefully before he accepted the Copac rubbish; sadly, he did not and now he and the nation at large must pay of his folly.
"The new constitution is the mother of all reforms," says Moyo. He knows MDC made a blunder and he is not one to resist rubbing their nose in it. Mother of all reforms, indeed!
