The presser held by Movement for Democratic Change – Alliance (MDC-A) leader Nelson Chamisa last week was a failed attempt at conjuring the little opposition support he still had in Zimbabwe.
When “Ishe Komborera Africa” played in the opening it exposed his unrepentant Rhodie mentality, screaming “puppet” right off the bat.

Chamisa’s 2021 agenda presser were lamentations of a washed up politician whose inability to consolidate opportunities to his favour led to his ambitious underlings splitting off and outshining him, stripping him of all party property.

He blamed the Second Republic for expulsions of MDC-A parliament members by MDC-T president Senator Douglas Mwonzora and his vice, Thokozani Khupe.

“Government used state machinery to subvert democracy, stripping away party property and diverting Party funding to surrogate boys and girls, ” said Chamisa .

He went on to accuse the government for imposing lockdown restrictions as a tactic to avoid MDC members from meeting.

These allegations did not go without a response, Spokesperson for Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) Cde Simon Khaya Moyo issued a response on the party’s stand point on Chamisa utterances saying ZANU-PF cherishes democracy.

“It is preposterous for Chamisa to say the Government is using Covid 19 to delay by-elections,” said Cde Moyo.

“The President wants to save lives because once lost they cannot be recovered,” he added.
Cde Moyo said responsible Zimbabweans accepted the measures put in place to save lives and that Chamisa is under pressure to seek relevance following the mass exodus by members to join the revolutionary party.
“As ZANU-PF we are proud of Government in fighting against COVID 19 pandemic and acquiring the Vaccine,” he added
Out of a total of 23 candidates who ran for presidency in 2018 and 75 parties that registered in the elections only Chamisa is playing the illegitimacy card like a broken record even after Constitutional Court ruling.
