ZANU PF Can Never Change. It’s Impossible – OPINION

Zimbabwean academic and visiting Assistant Professor of Political Science and Consortium at Amherst University in the United States of America, Chipo Dendere, says it is impossible for ZANU PF to change.

Dendere argues that those who join the party thinking that they can change it will be compromised.

Writing on microblogging site Twitter on Sunday, Dendere observed that the party’s foundations are deeply flawed: patronage, corruption, violence, anger, entitlement and greed. She wrote:

ZANU PF can never change. It’s impossible. It defies logic that anyone would expect ZANU to democratize and bring peace plus prosperity.

Its foundations are deeply flawed; patronage, corruption, violence, anger, entitlement and greed. To work within ZANU structures you’d have to change

I think it’s hard to push for change by joining any of the structures because you’ll become compromised. You also can’t join them when you’re broke because money makes people vulnerable.

Maybe this is true for all political parties – they find your vulnerabilities and exploit.

  1. The communist party in Russia which for more than 7 decades held brutal sway over a captive populace in the former USSR; disintegrated in less than 3 years and is hardly even remembered today! What makes Zanu PF any different? Indeed, what is the recipe for the total disappearance of a political system? The answer is 1) corruption, 2) greed and opulent lifestyles among the rulers, 3) their disregard for increasing levels of poverty in the populace, 4) oppression of ordinary citizens, 5) dependence on witchcraft or the occult among other things. All the forgoing indications are painfully evident in the “ruling party’s” governance style. As a result, one would be most accurate in making a prediction that Zanu PF will be gone and forgotten within the current decade, in spite of poll rigging and systems of brutality it uses to remain in power!
