During the GNU, Morgan Tsvangirai had the golden opportune to implement the democratic reforms designed to dismantle the Zanu PF dictatorship and deliver free and fair elections. He failed to get even one reform implemented because he traded the nation’s get-out-of-jail card with Mugabe. The tyrant offered Tsvangirai and his MDC friends seats of the country’s political gravy train plus a $4 million Highlands mansion for Tsvangirai in return for MDC seeing to it that not even one reform saw the light of day.
Of course, Tsvangirai sold-out during the GNU! We would not still be in this hot soup if MDC had implemented the reforms and the July 2013 elections were free, fair and credible.
President Mugabe rigged the 2013 elections and Tsvangirai and many of his MDC friends were booted off the gravy train. Tsvangirai is so desperate to get back on the gravy train he is already offering to sell-out the nation again if Mugabe will step down and allow him back on the gravy train.
“Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai has assured President Robert Mugabe that if the increasingly frail nonagerian retires from office now, long suffering Zimbabweans would ensure that he will not suffer retribution or end up being hauled before the courts for the human rights violations he allegedly committed ion his 36 years in power,” reported the Daily News.
We are in this hell-hole because President Mugabe and his henchmen placed themselves above the law. They have been the law unto themselves looting everything they could lay their hands to gratify their insatiable greed and riding roughshod over our freedoms and human rights.
Early this year President Mugabe finally admitted that there was corruption in Zimbabwe, after decades of denying it and blaming the nation's economic collapse on droughts, sanctions, etc. He admitted that $15 billions of diamond revenue was “swindled”. Today, ten months later, not even one of the swindlers has been arrested and so the swindlers are still out there busy swindling.
What nation on earth can sustain the grand theft of $15 billions much less one like Zimbabwe with only $14 billion GDP!
The worst crime President Mugabe and his Zanu PF thugs have committed against this nation is how they have harassed, beaten, raped and even murdered innocent Zimbabweans to establish and retain this corrupt and murderous one-party, Zanu PF, dictatorship. No stone will be left unturned in the nation’s search for the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth on how Mugabe has rigged elections.
He has always maintained after each election that the whole electoral process was free, fair and credible; if he was not lying he has nothing to fear, there will be no retribution!
Zimbabwe’s economy has all but collapse, unemployment has soared to over 90%, millions of our people live in abject poverty, our health and education services have all but collapse, etc. Over 30 000 innocent Zimbabweans have been butchered for no other reason than that they dare demand their basic freedoms and human rights including the right to a meaningful say in the governance of the country. These are very serious matters that must be addresses and resolved openly and honestly; they must never ever be swept under the carpet.
Indeed, we are in this mess precisely because Mugabe thought the freedoms and human rights of ordinary Zimbabweans including the right to life DO NOT matter. By offering him a blanket amnesty for all his satanic barbarism during his reign of terror, we are per se agreeing with his assertion that the suffering and even deaths of ordinary Zimbabweans are no more worthy of one’s consideration that ants!
How typical of a sell-out like Tsvangirai, he is not yet back in power but already he bargaining off the nation’s golden opportunity to finally end the Zanu PF dictatorship and restore the rule, just as he traded off the nation’s get-out-of-jail card during the GNU! Not only is he not going to be allowed back in office but he must account for his past.
Tsvangirai, you are not off the hook; no stone will be left unturned to establish that MDC did indeed sell-out during the GNU. The nation will be irresponsible to let a sell-out or his descendants keep a fraction of ill-got wealth such as the $4 million Highlands mansion when it costed millions of innocent souls so much anguish and human lives.
