July 16, 2018 3:51 PM Chigumba reminds me of Tobaiwa Mudede

Priscilla Chigumba reminds me of Tobaiwa Mudede – arrogant, Zanu PF sympathiser. A man who presided over biased elections for years. What Mnangagwa fails to realise is that he is a coup president. Noone elected him. He has no legitimacy. He is one of the most unelectable politicians in the country. He inspires no one except those hardcore Zanu supporters 41

HARARE – MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa is invoking the legend of Ndabaningi Sithole, the late Zanu Ndonga leader and religious leader from the United Methodist Church, to win the Chipinge vote.

Lord Carrington, Margaret Thatcher’s Foreign minister and one of the chief architects of a peaceful outcome to the 1979 Lancaster House Conference that ushered Zimbabwe’s independence, has died.

July 10, 2018 1:16 PM Chamisa battling Mnangagwa’s soft dictatorship

I am afraid the MDC Alliance appears oblivious to the mammoth political fraud in the electoral making. As things stand, the opposition grouping not only runs the horrifying risk of losing a massive chunk of democratic credibility through participating in a sham poll – which is practically impossible to win – but also losing an election which the electoral 30
