"I am getting better with age," boasted CZ (Mugabe) - 2018 elections will be free and your Waterloo. By P Guramatunhu

It is easy to see why President Robert Mugabe, satirized as Comrade CZ, would be feeling smug as a bug right now, the coast is clear for him to rig the 2018 elections to extend his rule by another five years.

“I should admit that it was not until recently that I started understanding your sincere appreciation of the role I have played in making you a people among people,” boasted Comrade CZ in his latest contribution.

No amount of blubbering can ever change the facts on the ground, that Mugabe is an incompetent, corrupt and murderous tyrant! Under his inapt leadership the country’s once promising economy has all but collapsed sending unemployment soaring to 90% and millions now live in abject poverty, it is killing them. Life expectancy has plummeted from 68 years in 1980 to 34 years in 2004 when it was last measured.

Corruption has grown and thrived under his rule it is now a monster sucking all the economic blood out of the nation. Last year, President Mugabe himself admitted that a staggering $15 billions of diamond revenue was “swindled” and, to crown it all, a year later still no one has been arrested or one dollar of the looted money recovered. Even the wealthy nations like USA with a GPD of US$20 trillion can afford such financial haemorrhage much less a country like Zimbabwe with a mere $10 billion GPD.

To establish and retain this brutal Zanu PF one-party dictatorship, Mugabe has murdered over 30 000 of our people.

So, only God knows what exactly Comrade CZ thinks Zimbabweans should be proud of, “as people among people” when we should all hang our collective heads in shame for having allowed Mugabe drag us into this hell-hole!

 From the praises I have been receiving, it is pretty clear that I am getting better with age. This explains why the people would want me to continue leading them,” CZ continued.

The only reason Mugabe has remained in power all these years is because he rigged elections and, lucky for him and a curse to the nation, has been surrounded by some of the most corrupt, incompetent and utterly useless individuals both in the opposition camp and within his own party, Zanu PF. He has cheated and bamboozled his political opponents and challengers with ease time and time again; a fight between a lion and a mouse frozen with fright is no contest.

Mugabe has corrupted the country’s democratic institution to deny the ordinary people their basic freedoms and human rights including the right to meaningful vote and even the right to life.

MDC leaders have failed to implement the necessary democratic reforms to stop vote rigging by the Zanu PF regime during the GNU, when they had the best chance to do so. It is true that since the rigged July 2013 elections not even one reform has been implemented, contrary to all the promise by the opposition to have this done. It is no wonder then that Comrade Mugabe is very confident he will rig the 2018 elections just as easily as he has rigged the 2013 elections. He has fooled this nation so many times in the past, he is cocksure he will fool the nation again.

It was one of United States of America’s greats, President Abraham Lincoln who said “You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”

After 37 years of deception and treasonous betrayal and with your ego ballooning out of all proportion; Mugabe must be thinking he is superhuman, he is the only mortal to ever achieve the feat of fooling all the people all the times! This is going to be a bridge too far even for a seasoned tyrant like you, Comrade CZ!

The people’s demand for free, fair and credible elections is growing by the day fuelled by the country’s worsening economic meltdown. They are finally realising the sheer futility of allowing themselves to take part in the country’s flawed election process in which the result is predetermined long before the first ballot is cast. The people are sick and tired of being taken for fools!

So, CZ cum Mugabe, you are not “getting better with age” because not even you can fool everyone all the time; the 2018 elections are going to be free and fair and you will meet your Waterloo then.

We are in this political and economic mess because for the last 37 years we have been stuck with one corrupt and tyrannical regime. The war veterans be they in government, armed services or at large like Jabulani Sibanda and Douglas Mahiya have all played their part in imposing Mugabe and Zanu PF on the nation. As long as these rogue war veterans continue to view themselves as special with special entitlements such as the veto when all others have a vote, this country will never get out of this mess.

If this 10 March 2018 war veterans meeting is to be a turning point in Zimbabwe then it must be the day war veterans apologise to the nation for betraying the people by supporting a corrupt and tyrannical regime's one-party state agenda for selfish gain. The war veterans must pledge themselves to uphold the rule of law and the right of everyone to free, fair and credible elections.

Mahiya and company must drop this foolish notion of imposing Mnangagwa on the nation; we are only now writing the closing chapter of Mugabe's tyrannical rule we do not want to start the new chapters of another tyrant's rule!

Ever since Mugabe got into power the nation's economy has been on a steady path of decline and today it is in such a mess 90% of the people are out of work and millions live in total abject poverty and millions of others have since left the country in search of means to earn a living. It is hard to see what exactly is the basis of his claim that he is getting better with age!

Making sure the next elections are free and fair is the key to meaningful political transformation in Zimbabwe and it is therefore the number task for us all. Mugabe would not even want to contest the elections if he learned the elections are going to be free, fair and credible; he knows that he will totally be humiliated!

Accusations, rumors, and counter-accusations swirl around Robert Mugabe’s 2013 presidential victory
By Yael Even Or

In the past three years, a new slang word has come to be popular in the Zimbabwean capital. I’ve heard it in professional settings and at parties. It’s a conjugation of the word nikuv, to say that you were screwed. For example, “Are you trying to nikuv me?” or “I just got a flat tire on my way to this meeting, I’m so nikuved!”

The Israeli government was warned about Nikuv's vote rigging activities in Zimbabwe by Western Government officials and the Israeli government decided to do nothing about it. The Israeli governments' continued close relationship with the apartheid government in SA in the continued oppression of the blacks in that country is well documented.

The author of this article's attempt to trivialised NIKUV's selfish and disastrous activities in undermining Zimbabwe's struggle to end this corrupt and tyrannical Zanu PF rule is insulting, to say the least.

NIKUV and the government of Israeli must know that this matter has soured relationship between the Israel and Zimbabwe and it is a matter of honour for every Zimbabwean to seek redress on this matter. They people of Zimbabwe have never ever done anything to insult or injury the people of Israel why they, for selfish financial gain, have done this is unforgivable. Just having Mugabe in power for just another term has costed the nation a lot in sweat, blood, human misery and many, many human lives! This is something we will never forget or allow to go unanswered.

To this day, over 70 years later, Israel has been hunting down WW2 criminals to face justice and rightly so too. Zimbabweans will be hunting down NIKUV criminals so they too face justice even if the task takes generations.
