A Divided Opposition Will Ensure ZANU PF Victory, Says Mashakada

A Divided Opposition Will Ensure ZANU PF Victory, Says Mashakada

MDC Alliance treasurer-general Tapiwa Mashakada says he is worried over the division within opposition ranks as this will split their vote and allow the ruling ZANU PF party to win elections easily.

The MDC Alliance staged a rally at Zimbabwe Grounds in Highfields, Harare on Sunday and attracted a sizeable crowd though some critics claimed that the opposition party paid people from across the country and then bussed them to attend the rally.

Posting on Facebook on Sunday, Mashakada implicitly implored opposition political parties to unite in order to unseat ZANU PF. He said:

The bumper crowd at the MDC Alliance Star Rally at Zimbabwe grounds is a testimony of hard work and dexterity. Morgan Tsvangirai’s legacy lives on. What lesson should this huge crowd teach us?

For me, it’s a statement that a divided opposition pulling large numbers at their rallies yet divided will split their votes and hand over victory to [ZANU PF]. This really worries me.

The country’s main opposition party, the Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) led by Nelson Chamisa, which was formed early this year, has been attracting huge crowds at its rallies even though it has been frustrated by the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) on several occasions.

The ZRP has banned CCC rallies in Gokwe, Marondera and Binga in recent weeks while the MDC Alliance has conducted all its rallies unmolested, with some commentators saying it shows that the Douglas Mwonzora-led party’s a ZANU PF “puppet”.

The MDC Alliance has denied allegations that it is serving ZANU PF interests at the expense of citizens who have supported the original MDC since its formation in 1999.

MDC Alliance is wasting its resources and precocious time for truth is that they have no support and its a known fact that whenever they hold a rally they get only less than 300 people why its because they are confused and have no direction. Chamisa is the Man of the people he has thousands and thousands of supporter's country wide. MDC alliance is not going anywhere because they are being used as puppet especially mwonzora his busy bootlicking his corrupt master while the masses are suffering

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, LEND ME YOUR EARS. I AM NOT WRITING TO PRAISE ECONOMIST MASHAKADA, BUT TO FURTHER EXAMINE HIS STATEMENT.

IT IS TRUE THAT DIVIDED OPPOSITION MAY FALL TO ZANU PF. THIS IS WHY ZANU PF SOFTENED ITS APPROACH TO ADVOCATE DOUGLAS TAGARASEYI MWONZORA SO THAT HE BECOMES THEIR TROJAN HORSE AND INDEED MWONZORA HAS BECOME ZANU PF TROJAN HORSE.

THERE IS ONE ASPECT WHICH THE ECONOMIST MASHAKADA DID NOT DISCUSS. IF ZANU PF WINS WITH MINORITY IN BOTH THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY AND THE SENATE, THEIR PRESIDENT WILL FIND IT DIFFICULT TO SIGN BILLS INTO LAW AS HE WISHES BECAUSE THE BILLS WILL BE BLOCKED EITHER IN THE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY OR THE SENATE.

THERE IS DANGER IN THAT SCENARIO AS ONE PARTY IN THE OPPOSITION MAY DECIDE TO BE JUDAS ISCARIOT, JUST LIKE WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW WITH ADVOCATE DOUGLAS TAGARASEYI MWONZORA. HE IS THE ONLY POLITICAL PARTY LEADER WHO HAS GONE TO STATE HOUSE TO FEED ON CRUMBS.

ON THE CROWD WHICH GATHERED AT ZIMBABWE GROUNDS, THOSE PEOPLE WERE BUSED FROM ALL OVER ZIMBABWE TO CREATE AN IMPRESSION THAT MDC ALLIANCE IS STILL EXISTING. NO CDE MASHAKA, THE INCOMING BYELECTIONS WILL PROVE YOU WRONG. MDC T/ALLIANCE IS GOING TO DIG THERE GRAVE AT THE BYELECTIONS AND GET BURIED AT THE HARMONISED ELECTIONS IN 2023.

[CCC IS FOR THE PEOPLE, FOR THE COUNTRY AND FOR THE LAW].

MdcA is warming up for a GNU, so how will they remove Zanu pf from power? Mwonzora shocked his supporters at The Zim ground when he said that he does not want to be a president neither does he want any portfolio all he wants is dialogue for a GNU.

DEAR BUSH LAWYER, MR MASHAKADA'S STATEMENT IS LADEN WITH MEANING THAT MIGHT PROVE HIM RIGHT THOUGH HE MIGHT BE SAYING THIS WITH KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT'S BEING PLANNED BEHIND THE SCENES.
THE BUSSING IN OF SUPPORTERS HAS NOT STARTED WITH MWONZORA , IN FACT EVRY POLITICAL PARTY HERE IN ZIMBABWE IS DOING TO KEEP IMPRESSIONS ON THE HIGH SIDE .BUT DOUGIE IS PROBABLY WORKING ON ADVICE AND FINANCING FROM THE ZANU PF TO BUS IN SUPPORTERS INORDER TO CREATE IMPRESSIONS.THAT WAY IT WILL BE EASIER FOR ZEC TO GIVE QUITE A GOOD NUMBER TO MDCA AT CCC'S EXPENSE.ZANU PF WILL BENEFIT FROM THAT ARTIFICIAL SPLITTING OF VOTES.2023ELECTIONS DOUGIE WILL WIN AROUND 10 CONSTITUENCIES... AND HE WILL HAVE DONE ENOUGH BLOW TO CCC.
CHAMISA MUST BE WARY OF THIS ARTIFICIAL TROJAN HORSE WHICH IS GOING TO BE USED AS A MAJOR TOOL OF RIGGING AND LEAVE CCC SURPRISED .
ITS EITHER REIGN IN MWONZORA SOMEHOW, OR WORK HARD TO DECIMATE HIS RELEVANCE ON THE POLITICAL SCENE.HE IS AS DANGEROUS AS ZANU PF.
THE REALITY CHECKER IS OUT

10 seats? l strongly disagree with your assessment. l don't see them get even 1 council seat, let alone a house of representative seat. My reason is that the MDC alliance was poisoned by the recalls. people will always remember this and they will hit him hard. His party got state assistance to subdue Chamisa' s MDC- Alliance in a number of uncouth ways. for that Mwonzora and crew will pay heavily.

DEAR SOSO,

I AGREE WITH YOU IN EVERY RESPECT. READ AGAIN MY COMMENT YOU WILL FIND OUT THAT I SAID DEVIDED OPPOSITION PARTIES MAY FALL TO ZANU PF.

I JUST ADDED A SCENARIO WHICH MR MASHAKADA HAD NOT DEBATED WHEREBY THE RULING PRESIDENT LACKS MAJORITY IN BOTH CHAMBERS, HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY AND THE SANATE.

OTHERWISE WE ARE IN THE SAME BOAT GOING TO INDIA.

Douglas Mwonzora is Judas Iscariot of ZIMBABWE because his targets of pushing Nero from the MDC ALLIANCE succeeded successfully due to a strong help from the ZANU PF. Now he has joined the G40
SECRETLY and ZANU PF has never observed this.
He tried ZAPU and failed but he is now under the arms of certain ZANU PF bid members who are in the party but are trying to split the ZANU PF PARTY TOO
The are two or three lions of ZANU PF party who are pulling at different directions but are seeming to be friendly yet they are biting each other's back.

Bear in mind that Mr fired ndebele speaking vice president of ZIMBABWE was not happy about his removal from work and is planning something with the big CADRES in the party to revenge and Douglas is the tea boy.

CCC is also too problematic to ZANU PF itself but the BIG FISHES of ZANU PF doesn't trust each other and they are planning to change power in their own since the other big SHANGWA wants to die on hook.
They might be a coup before 2023 or one of the prisidents will be forced to resign or some tricky games will be played within the ZANU PF party big cadres.

The problem is that MDC ALLIANCE has never been related to ZANU PF all, but now it is a tool being used by some of the ZIMBABWEAN POLITICIANS. Even CCC can use DOUGLAS at all his needed level because DOUGLAS IS VERY STUPID AND HE IS PLAYING WITH A LEOPARD'S TAIL
HE WILL VOMIT ALL THE FINANCE HE IS DEVOURING BY BUSSING POOR PEOPLE FOR THE PROFIT OF ONE OR TWO POLITICAL MEMBERS.

HE IS DEALING ON ACCOUNTED FINANCES THAT BY THE DYING MINUTES OF THE DEAL, HE PROVOKE THE THE BIG SHANGWAS BY EXPOSING THE TRUTH TO THE PUBLIC

NOTHING WILL END WITHOUT THE CONCLUSION

MAY DOUGLAS FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION OF THE MDC ALLIANCE PROPERLY TO SAVE HIS LIFE

NOBODY LOVES MWONZORA AND ALL THE PEOPLE WHO ATTENDED HIS RALLY ARE ALL HAVING SOME ZANU PF MEMBERSHIP CARDS AND T SHIRTS. THEY WERE ONLY HIRED BY ZANU PF TO PROMOTE ZEC'S DEAL OF RIGING IN FAVOUR OF ZANU PF AND MDC ALLIANCE TO GET SOME SEATS IN THE PARLIAMENT BUT THAT WON'T WORK BECAUSE PRESIDENT NELSON CHAMISA IS CHOICE OF THE ZIMBABWEAN CITIZENS.

EVEN A NEW BORN BABY PASSES OUT YELLOOOOOOOW
THE ZANU PF REGALIA HAS GOT YELLOOOOOOOW
THE NATIONAL FLAG HAS GOT YELLOOOOOOOW
EVEN A PATIENT IN A HOSIPITAL VOMITS YELLOOOOOOOW
EVEN THOKOZANI KHUPE' S DRESSES HAS GOT YELLOOOOOOOW
EVEN THE MIGHTY WARRIORS' UNIFORMS HAS GOT YELLOOOOOOOW
AND LASTLY, THE BULLETS' OUTLOOK IS YELLOW AND THEY VOMIT YELLOW SO CHAMISA IS THE ONLY MEN TO VOTED INTO THE ZIMBABWEAN PARLIAMENTARY ELECTIONS THI MONTH WOOO.

If people can be bussed and get paid to attend rallies it means they can also be paid to vote in a certain way. Zanupf has lots of cash and if ZZimbo can be bought so cheaply then opposition can forget victory in 2023

I THINK MR MASHAKADA IS RIGH HERE.HOW? ZANU PF IS NOW TACTICAL MORE WHEN IT COMES TO THIS GAME OF NUMBERS.MNANGAGWA MADE A VERY TRICKERY TACTICAL CHANGE FROM HIS PREDECESSOR CMRD R.G MUGABE.BY CREATING A WIDE DOOR FOR AT LEAST 23 POLITICAL PARTIES TO EXERCISE DEMOCRACY, THATS WHERE THE OPPOSITION LOST.THIS IS WHERE MASHAKADA'S POINT OF VOTE SPLIT IS COMING FROM.I KNOW THAT PEOPLE OF ZIMBABWE ARE VERY DESPERATE FOR CHANGE BUT WE ARE LACKING WELL DEVISED STRATEGY,COME WHAT MAY WITHOUT ITS OLD STRATEGY OF RIGGING ZANU PF IS GOING TO WIN FAIRLY AND TREMENDOUSLY IN 2023.IN THIS COMING BY ELECTION,ZANU IS NOT WORRIED MUCH REMEMBER MOST SEATS HERE WERE OF THE THEN MDC- A ,SO ITS JUST A SUPPLEMENT OF FOOD TO THE RULING PARTY EVEN IF IT SCORES 5 SEATS, THEIR MAIN FOCUS IS 2023 HARMONISED ELECTION.THIS MIN ELECTION HAS BEEN PROCLAIMED TO MAKE FINANCIAL PRESSURE TO CHAMISA IN 2023 CAMPAIGN SINCE THE NEWLY FORMED CCC IS SHOWING BANKRUPTCY CHALLENGES THOUGH IT IS SHOWING GOOD WELCOME FROM THE ELECTORATE ,CHAMISA MADE A BIG MISTAKE TO CONTEST THIS MINI ELECTION BECAUSE ZANU WILL USE IT AS A FRIENDLY SESSION TO TEST THIS NEWLY FORMED PARTY. PROFESSOR MADHUKU WAS RIGHT WHEN HE SAID THIS ELECTION IS A WASTE O RESOURCES. ONLY RULING PARTY IS BENEFING FROM THIS ELECTION .IF FROM THIS FRENDLY MATCH CHAMISA INDICATES PUNCH, THEN YOU KNOW THE GUYS IN ZANU PF WILL MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO MAKE SURE THE CAMPAIGNIG FIELD WONT BE THAT EASY FOR CHAMISA ON 2023 HARMONISED ELECTION
