ZANU PF Miscalculated In Calling For By-elections - David Coltart

ZANU PF Miscalculated In Calling For By-elections - David Coltart

David Coltart, a senior official in the opposition Citizens’ Coalition for Change (CCC) has said the ruling ZANU PF miscalculated in calling for by-elections scheduled for 26 March.

He said the ruling party thought it had destroyed the opposition. Said the former Education minister:

ZANU PF has seriously miscalculated in calling by elections. They thought that they had eliminated the real opposition & could manipulate the result. The combination of the @CCCZimbabwe ‘s remarkable surge & @PacheduZW ‘s expose of @ZECzim ‘s fraud has ruined their nefarious plans.

The by-elections slated for 26 March are meant to fill vacant council and Parliamentary seats, most of which, came vacant after opposition MDC-T led by Senator Douglas Mwonzora recalled members of councillors and legislators who were pro-Nelson Chamisa.

Mwonzora also claimed ownership of the MDC name and all its variables, including the MDC Alliance which the Nelson Chamisa-led party was using.

The Chamisa-led outfit argued that Mwonzora was being used by ZANU pf to destroy the opposition in the country. They then formed the CCC which has been growing at a rate that has shocked some analysts. 

The party has so far hosted a couple of rallies that were highly attended and some analysts say the huge attendances have shaken the ruling ZANU PF.

Meanwhile, Team Pachedu, a civil society group, picked some anomalies in the voters’ roll which it says were deliberate efforts by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) to rig the upcoming elections.

ZEC has been denying the allegations but “rectified them secretly,” according to Team Pachedu.

Don't Undermine Zanu Before you have won And take the rod....that's your problem.....keep your tactics and insights secret....Zanu is never too vocal on plans or tactics.....that's where you are beaten

IT IS TRUE THAT ZANU PF MISCALCULATED POLITICAL FEELINGS IN THE COUNTRY. THEY THOUGHT ADVOCATE MWONZORA HAD DONE ENOUGH FOR THEM TO FINISH OFF THE MAIN OPPOSITION POLITICAL PARTY, CCC.

FURTHERMORE, ADVOCATE DOUGLAS TAGARASEYI MWONZORA AND PRESIDENT ED MNANGAGWA MAY HAVE WANTED TO TEST THE WATERS. IF THEY DO NOT PERFORM WELL IN THE BY-ELECTIONS, THEY WILL KNOW THAT THEY WILL NOT PERFORM WELL IN THE HARMONISED ELECTIONS. THEY WILL THEN PUT IN MOTION THEIR PLAN B WHICH IS A GNU GOVERNMENT.

Or if ZANU loses heavily on March 26, they could find excuses to postpone or cancel the general election scheduled for 2923 OR go the Nzvonyora suggestion of GNU with MDC T

Whether miscalculation or not by elections were supposed to be held either way . So it has nothing to do with calculating. But a matter of principle

@Bounty Hunter, this is why Zimbabwe fails to develop. Consumptive behaviour.

Instead of thinking of buying Chelsea (recreational investment that isn't productive), wouldn't thinking of using that US$15 billion to kick start Batoka Gorge hydroelectric scheme?

That way we would be self sufficient in power reduce externalisation of scarce foreign exchange and promote industrial development

Since 2018 Chamisa was being ill treated, So people were watching and felt sorry for the young man, Now, even non CCC members sympathise with Chamisa looking at how government was and is treating him, Thank you social media, zbc is now a useless thing bcoz unedited news are all over the place so why watching ztv, mayb only for weather report, Even if zbc doesnt screen ccc rallies, people are watching them online, In short l am saying, free and fair elections are now possible and a lot af people can vote well informed on what they will be doing, Another painful truth is, young people are those using technology to access info and have less time on zbc, thats the reason ccc is growing at an alarming rate, The young are using their phones to access infor and zbc is a thing of the past, Another souce of info is this Pindula and l guess most of us here are below 40, and looking at it few are for pro current gvt,
In addition, the government is at each others thraot with its workers, infact they are not paying them, instead of understanding their situation, they are suspending them, people are watching and a lot are symphathising with them, In 2008 Mugabe campaigned while civil were striking and he lost, history may repeat itself, watch the space,
