"Indecisive And Unfocused" Zim Opposition Cannot Win Power - Mliswa

Independent MP, Temba Mliswa (Norton), has challenged the opposition to be consistent and show decisive leadership if it truly habours ambitions of forming the next government.

Mliswa said the opposition has over the years changed its position on important issues that affect the nation such as land reform, sanctions, and power-sharing. He said:

The opposition is failing to be a veritable alternative as it continues dithering over issues exhibiting a lack of consistency and focus.

One day they stand for one thing and the next they are lamenting or denying alignment with the same. How can they get into power?

On Land Reform, they refused to participate saying it’s a [ZANU PF] thing. They attacked us for getting land.

Today they are struggling and trying to find land for agricultural business. Have they changed their position or what? Now they say it was good!

They said Mugabe was illegitimate and yet still went into a GNU with him as the head. The same with ED. They walked out and protested accusing him of being illegitimate.

Yet today they are accepting the benefits and perks from his tenure and leadership.

Today they say we never called for sanctions and disavow any links to them. Yet at their pronouncement they celebrated them as an international political masterstroke against the Govt.

Now they deny any links to them. Where do they stand then? Leadership requires decisiveness.

[Douglas Mwonzora] carried out a purging campaign recalling their MPs& Councilors and they cried foul. I raised a motion to have Section 129(1)(k) under which recalls happen & they didn’t support it.

Only Hon Mushoriwa debated. Yet it affected them not me. So what do they want?

Today Gvt offers loans and they accept them yet their leader says something else different. This is despite that he himself has received equivalent perks during the Mugabe tenure.

Instead of supporting us, he goes against us, succumbing to ill-informed mob pressure.

In this medley of contradictions, fluctuations and dissonance, it’s apparent that the opposition isn’t providing a cohesive front nor is it giving the electorate confidence.

You cannot be constantly swayed by public pressure to accept impractical things. Show some spine!

I’m my own person and will support anything that is progressive and developmental. It doesn’t matter if it’s [ZANU PF] or [CCC] who have said it or done it. The path of principles remains true and straight in whatever form or nature.

Equally, populism is dangerous. You cannot have a whole party subsisting on the euphoria and energy of populism.

It’s not a veritable foundation to claim power on. In fact, populism, like a wave, will subside and people will want to see substance and focus not drama.

Nelson Chamisa] succumbed to public pressure and went against his own MPs but in doing so contradicted his own past actions.

That’s not a spine for leadership. Stick to the truth even against the masses. Truth and time will exonerate and justify you.

Eyes 👀 cannot see if the brain is blind. This is a matter of principles, it needs selfless servant leaders. Being an MP is voluntary it is not different from a School Development Committee member. This 40 k Usd loan is very outrageous, it sets a bad precedence to the future leadership, imagine every 5 years MPs given such loans and cars and other freebies from a poor State like Zimbabwe just because he volunteered to be an Mp.... That is running down the country. Such people don't deserve to be leaders. Viva Chamisa for his principled vision of a better Zimbabwe. Rhodesia was super because Smith never allowed this in his Govt, may his soul rest in peace

That's why ANC & Siriro Rhamapithecus keep supporting the criminals & murderers of ZANU PF. For South Africa to prosper, Zimbabwe must remain chaotic & disorganised. That way South Africa will keep benefitting from selling everything to Zimbabwe, from electricity to basic goods & using Zimbabweans for cheap labour. ANC does not support CCC bcoz CCC will improve the Zimbabwean economy & South Africa will lose revenue & it's economy will collapse. ANC knows that Zimbabwe is a banana republic, but they keep supporting ZANU PF anyway. Zimbabwe is a province of South Africa.

Here comes blabbermouth Temba Mliswa from little known town of Norton. It is Cde Temba Mliswa himself who is "indecisive and unfocussed".

Cde Temba Mliswa, it is you who has no political party who is not focussed. Mliswa just barks in Parliament making lots of unhelpful remarks to please his Norton folks. He should be focused and join a party of his choice.

At its formation MDC did not subscribe to Land
Reform.. With progression they came out in the open and said consistently that they now support Land Reform because it now applied lawfully, peacefully and logically as opposed to violently where hundreds of farmers were killed. They still hold that position. They support Land Reform.

On Sanctions CCC says sanctions are there and painful, but ZANU PF is taking advantage of these really targeted sanctions to corruptly vandalise the country's economy. ZANU PF is corrupt upto the neck !!!!!

Zimbabwe has been invited to United States Of America in December to attend economic meeting for Africa. European Union has just released USD 47.??? for Zimbabwe. This shows that EU has not put Zimbabwe on sanctions.

Temba 's argument is one sided .Why do you ignore the role of Zanu pf in.dividing the opposition .Like anyone living in Zimbabwe CCC MPs are bearing the brunt of a failed economy .Who in.his right mind will deny some extra dollars to cover their income gap ?Principles dont pay bills.Zanu is good at playing people but in this case CCC MPs take the money and continue fight for an alternative government .Dont worry about what Nero said ,privately his empathize with you .He has a difficult balancing act to do ie keep his party united and to keep his support base happy amid the onslaught you a well oiled and cunning rulling party .Forget about the Tembas and the so called " principled critics and analysis "Some of those who shout loudest accept financial benefits from foreign governments and organisations attending workshops and conferences in foreign countries .Suddenly they are making noise .Opposition is fairing well consideration the environment they are working in

We want constructive criticism not threats otherwise you will end up threatening the whole country. You have to be honest here gentleman, we want water, electricity, food, jobs and better living conditions not threats or political rhetoric about the revolutionary war which was fought more than 40 years ago. Let us find ways to develop our country and denounce looting and mismanagement of the country's resources. Zimbabwe is for all of us and no one should claim emotional attachment to the politics of bootlicking when the general public is lamenting in poverty while you claim to be patriotic over a field of mass graves. Do you have a conscience?

Indeed we want constructive criticism and no one on this platform will cow people into submission and stop them from saying what they feel is not right in their beloved country We all share this Zimbabwean dream guys and let no one think that he or she dreams bigger
