OPINION: Rowdy Conduct By MDC Alliance Youths At Funeral Wake In Gutu Shocking But Not Unexpected – ZimMorning Post Opinionist

Nicholas Gochai writing for ZimMorning Post said the attack on Khupe and Madhuku and Mbuya Chamisa’s funeral yesterday did not come as a surprise as he said MDC youths are rowdy and their acts were un African, shocking but not unexpected.

Gochai opined:

MDC politics never runs out of masterpiece theatrics, if it was not for its “histrionic personality disorder.”

That some rowdy youths claiming to be MDC Alliance supporters wanted to mete out “instant Justice” this week against Thokozani Khupe – leader of the rival MDC-T party – at Nelson Chamisa’s mother’s funeral wake at Chiwara, Gutu South in Masvingo, is a display of raw anachronism in Zimbabwe’s body politic and should be dismissed with the contempt it deserves.

Chamisa’s mother reportedly collapsed and died at her rural family home on Monday.

Such kind of behaviour as exhibited by some MDC Alliance youths is detestable, unAfrican and completely uncalled for.

That such conduct found its way at a funeral wake of such a respected politician’s mother was completely shocking but not unexpected.

What is tragic is that this is not the first time an incident of such a kind has happened.

In 2018, at the MDC-T founding leader’s rural homestead at Mahumanikwa in Buhera, violence again reared its ugly head, well before the late leader’s burial.

It also emerged that some MDC rowdy party youths had intentions to set alight a thatched hut in which then co-vice president of the party Khupe and secretary general Douglas Mwonzora had sought refuge after they had reportedly been assaulted for God-knows-why.

Clearly, Zimbabweans would be forgiven if they dismissed the credentials of the current crop of opposition as those of kindergarten kids playing marbles.
