Chamisa Doesn't Have What It Takes To Lead Zimbabwe, Says Trevor Ncube

Chamisa Doesn't Have What It Takes To Lead Zimbabwe, Says Trevor Ncube

Alpha Media Holdings chairman and former member of the Presidential Advisory Council (PAC), Trevor Ncube says CCC president Nelson Chamisa has no capacity to lead Zimbabwe out of its current economic challenges.

In his article published by NewsDay on 12 April 2022, Ncube said Chamisa has good oratory skills at political rallies but doesn’t have what it takes to make tough decisions to navigate the country out of the economic quagmire. Wrote Ncube:

The Nelson Chamisa-led Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) claims to have the answers to all that afflicts Zimbabwe.

As things stand, I am far from persuaded that Chamisa has what it takes to dig the country out of the ZANU PF-created morass.

I, too, sense the palpable excitement for the possibility of something new and the desperate desire for change after 42 years of authoritarian rule that has blighted the country’s fortunes.

Oratory is the skill required at rallies while governing requires a different skillset and the courage to make decisions to administer tough love to the adoring masses.

There is no doubt that Zimbabwe is ripe for change. Unless we are clear about the change we want, then anything that looks like a change will suffice. Have we waited this long to shortchange ourselves?

The country has been ready and on the cusp of change for a while now. Brute force, intimidation and daylight electoral robbery have subjugated the majority to the whims of narrow and selfish political, military and economic interests.

To many Zimbabweans, particularly the youth, Chamisa holds the key to the escape door out of years of the ZANU PF dictatorship.

He has captured the mood and his speeches at rallies, while underwhelming on substance, have connected with many, especially the young.

There is a personality cult that says he can do or say no wrong. Any criticism is seen as sacrilege at worst and a reckless attempt to derail the people’s hopes and march towards the new.

Criticising Chamisa or pointing to his shortcomings is often equated to supporting ZANU PF.

Responding to Ncube, Alex Magaisa, a former advisor to the late former Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, questioned his political judgement, saying his previous political projects failed. Wrote Magaisa on Twitter:

@TrevorNcube I’ve read your piece & there are loose ends that need clarity. You say you supported Mssrs Makoni & Moyo in their political projects.

It’s common cause that 1. both failed & 2. you abandoned them. Could you elaborate on why they failed despite the merits you saw?

Secondly, you pledge a holy petition that Chamisa “attracts men & women who are far better than him to add content, vision and strategy to his ambitions”, an indirect claim that he has none. Is that how lowly you regard accomplished peers like Welshman Ncube & Tendai Biti?

Who might these men and women be that you have in mind so that we can also assess their qualities and your judgment?

When you joined PAC were you satisfied that Mnangagwa had men and women of the calibre that you suggest? If so who were they and why did they fail?

You have joined Mssrs [Simba] Makoni, [Nkosana] Moyo and Mnangagwa in their political projects and it’s been a hat-trick of failures, walking out on all 3.

On that record, do you think you’ve just been unlucky to be on the wrong side of chance or does it say something about your political judgment?

In 2018, Ncube tweeted that President Emmerson Mnangagwa had made an offer to Chamisa that he said the opposition leader couldn’t reject.

He, however, didn’t disclose the nature of the offer or whether it was indeed made to Chamisa or not.

At least Chamisa has proven his pedigree beyond reasonable doubt in the political arena by amassing massive support as shown in 2018 and on his recently launched political party CCC. Trevor Ncube is nothing but a flip flopper who has invested on having his media empire being helped by the 2nd Republic, and this explains his support for ED post 2018. He failed to get the financial help he expected to prop up his floundering media empire. He has no pedigree neither is he a prophet or oracle who can predict that Chamisa cannot economically steer Zimbabwe out of its economic morass. He should not exhibit his profound jealous for a young man who is having a blistering political career and can be a panacea to Zimbabwe's myriad of economic problems

Whatever he touches, fail and out of anger he is now criticizing everything and everyone around him and the worst mistake he did was to associate with Mkarangangwa the ZANU pf President ,that's when his brain nerves were disconnected.

TREVOR NCUBE is an Old People's Home appandage. He is parroting for crumbs from the state house. Advocate NELSON CHAMISA like other world Presidents will not rule ZIMBABWE alone, but with lieutenants, Advocate TENDAI BITI, Avocate WELSHMAN NCUBE and his cabinet. TREVOR NCUBE'S utterances have exposed him as a man bankrupt of political icumen. He should not use his newspapers to disparage citizens choice and the anointed one. Do not lie to citizens that you left the President's Advisory Council. All the people you have been associated with, SIMBA MAKONI and NKOSAH MOYO have been political failures. This time you have joined this one who intends to use you Nicodemusly. He is a failure too, TREVOR NCUBE. Your record in politics is hopeless. VOTE CCC FOR REAL CHANGE.

It is not mere coincidence that Trevor Ncube has joined all the three politicians with high hopes of salvaging something out of their union and like he is saying, discovered that there was nothing tangible in their projects. It says a lot about himself as a person. He is a failure whose judgment cannot even be trusted. He is therefore not qualified to give a credible judgment on any politician. You are a useless someone Ncube. To hell with your warped judgment about Chamisa.
