President of an opposition party Free Zimbabwe, Jacob Ngarivhume says Zimbabweans should draw lessons from Sudan where the military staged a coup against long-time strongman Omar Al-Bashir on Thursday.
The Sudanese people have rejected the proposal to form a Transitional Military Council to govern the country for the next two years. The citizens have demanded a civilian government now. Said Ngarivhume:
The Sudanese people are now demanding a civilian transitional authority because they have learnt from the last 5 coups that the Military Is not meant for governance.
I hope it doesn’t take Zimbabwe for 50 years. Zimbabwe badly needs a Civilian Transition authority without political leaders.
Zimbabwe has a deficit of people who are honest driven political leaders. It appears people are willing to do and say anything for political positions and such people can never be trusted with the nation.
It is also important to come to terms with the fact that Freedom for our nation will never come through the ballot box. For freedom to come through the ballot we would need reforms in the electoral system. I can confidently say that ZEC is a ZANU PF entity and it will never reform voluntarily.
Reforms also have to be pushed through in PARLIAMENT and OPPOSITION does NOT have the numbers to push such reforms and as long as opposition continues to field double candidates and self-sabotage there will never be enough numbers to push for reforms in Parliament and this reality faced by all instead of lying to ourselves about a Victory in 2023.
Sometimes facing our reality instead of entertaining unrealistic notions is important. facts to face when it comes to ZANU PF.
ZANU PF will never change, ZANU PF will never Reform, ZANU PF will always promise you the moon and the stars but you never get anything and if ZANU PF gives you something there is a price tag on it and they will collect.
Zimbabweans need to understand that we are in this together, Black, White Asian, Shona or Ndebele we must be UNITED.
ZANU PF will never relinquish power through the ballot. ZANU PF Is already planning how they will rig the next election.
They are ten steps ahead as ZANU PFs Primary business is the business of staying in POWER. Somewhere in the ZEC Office, the Presidential results for 2023 are already being plotted.
The toughest reality we must face is that it will probably take a people-driven revolution to remove ZANU PF. meaning we the people will have to take the lead in getting our lives and the future of our children back from the grip of ZANU PF.
When a politician or Political party says they will win in 2023 be good to yourselves Zimbabweans and ask them, What reforms have they pushed or currently pushing that will ensure the elections are free and fair and that ZEC will announce opposition as the winner? If the answer is in the negative, then the chances of winning are next to none.
