Eddie Cross said SA denied MDC "assistance" to unseat Mugabe - damned lie! By WILBERT MUKORI

MP Eddie Cross as the nation’s political and economic crisis gets worse and worse the people of Zimbabwe will look back and ask themselves could this nightmare been avoided and, with time, they will know and understand the true cost of MDC’s failure to implement even one reform during the GNU.

If MDC had implemented the GPA reforms as expected of them then the July 2013 elections would have been free, fair and credible. Mugabe would not have rigged the elections and be in power today.

“We have struggled in the main opposition party, the MDC, to unseat the government through non-violent and democratic means but have not only been denied any significant external assistance in this struggle but faced the active opposition of many African states, including South Africa,” wrote Eddie Cross.

There are lies and then there are damned lies; Eddie Cross is telling us damned lies!

MDC was reminded many times throughout the GNU to implement the reforms by SADC and many others but MDC leaders paid no heed. Short of SADC drafting the proposed democratic reforms for MDC what assistance did Eddie Cross want from SADC or SA?

MDC failed to get not even one democratic reform implemented in five years of the GNU because Mugabe had bribes them with the gravy train lifestyles plus the $4 million Highlands mansion for Tsvangirai. MDC leaders “were too busy enjoying themselves during the GNU they forgot why they were there,” remarked SADC Heads of State is sheer frustration at MDC’s failure to implement even one reform.

MDC failed to unseat Mugabe in the July 2013 elections because they had sold-out, period.

As the cost of failing to unseat Mugabe begins to mount, soaring unemployment, increased poverty, starvation, etc.; the people will ask whether this could have been avoided. They will be disappointed to know Zimbabwe would be on a different economic and political trajectory if only MDC had implemented the reforms. The people’s disappointment will turn to anger to see the people who sold-out are still in denial and refuse to apologize!

MDC leaders have done a great job "shredding the MDC brand" by failing to implement even one reform in five years of the GNU I have taken it upon myself to make sure all Zimbabweans know MDC leaders are corrupt and incompetent and therefore never ever elect them back into office. This is very important work, holding leaders to account; you clearly do not appreciate it, at least not yet but you will!

Getting people to break away from the old politics of empty slogans and following leaders blindly is my other task.

I do not need a political party with structures and active members on the ground to accomplish these two tasks.

If you refuse to listen to my warning about MDC leaders being sell-outs because I have no party members in Mbare or Mangunje then do not listen. I have never subscribed to that kind of empty slogan nonsense. What I say will stand or fall depending on whether it is factual and logical and not where I said it from! I will never change what I am doing or saying just because you are not listening Mukanya; you are important but not that important!

Zimbabweans have been condition to accept the worst so when the regime does something right regardless that it is late the nation celebrates as if it has done them a great favour. This is like the family rejoicing because the ten year old son has used the toilet instead of his norm of pissing and s***ting everywhere! The whole family is always trading on egg-shells careful not to annoy the boy because for fear of what he will do next! Even if he was playing outside he will run indoors just to piss into the fridge!

For Pete's sake; are we men or are we mice? Mugabe is dragging this nation into the gutter and us with it. How long are we going to pretend this crisis management, kiya-kiya, is the way to run a nation?

We are in this mess with 90% out of work and millions living in abject poverty because we have allowed Mugabe to ride over us roughshod. Until we learn to assert our own human dignity and show we are capable of think for ourselves and standing up for ourselves then we will never get out of this mess! Never!

There are reports of rioting in Chitugwiza.

This nation has forced so many people into a situation where they rightly feel they have no future and nothing to lose. Many of these people joint the riot just to vent their frustration at a nation that does not care if they live or die!

The present economic situation is socially and politically unsustainable and we do not have to wait until the whole nation is on fire to do something about it!
