“It’s Sad And Delusional To Expect Cde Mbeki To Disband POLAD,” – Opposition Leader

Obert Gutu, the vice president of the MDC -T led by Thokozani Khupe has vehemently said that former South Africa President, Thabo Mbeki will never dissolve the Political Actors Dialogue (POLAD) forum particularly after seeing achievements it made so far.

The former Deputy Minister of Justice (GNU era) posted on Twitter saying:

President Thabo Mbeki appreciates the remarkable achievements made by POLAD. We outlined to him POLAD’s achievements profile & he was impressed. To expect Cde. Mbeki to advocate for the disbanding of POLAD is like wishing that one day Lucifer will conquer Heaven. It won’t happen.

His remarks come as the other MDC-A led by Nelson Chamisa is adamant that it will not join POLAD, a forum the party describes as a circus doomed to fail.

On the other hand, the ruling ZANU PF has said that there will be no talks with Chamisa outside POLAD which was initiated by President Emmerson Mnangagwa earlier this year.

  1. Obert Gutu (and T. Khupe) has become one of the most disappointing political figures in recent Zimbabwean political history. What achievement that actually benefits the populace has been achieved by (current, 2019) POLAD so far? This has become the disappointing rhetoric in recent Zimbabwean history, we have bureaucrats in organisations having theoretical approach to real world problems, coming out with theoretical solutions that have no real world benefits, its all on paper -case in point, our current FM, the most learned Prof. Mthuli Ncube. I’m sure the benefits he (Obert Gutu) is talking about above, are ones that were expected to come out of POLAD, yet have’nt or actually failed to come out. I’m sure these were what they convinced Thabo Mbeki were the case.

    Our current crisis, is a politico-economical crisis. The powers that be could have majority support, but the people who make the economy move are people either aligned to the opposing side or at least falsely show an alignment to the powers that be, yet are on a sabotaging spree at the expense of the reputation of those powers. This is something I have always spoken about when it comes to arguments of this nature, a political nature: Africa has an unfortunate deficit in good leadership -be it actual capable persons or leadership principles.
