A political commentator, Pedzisai Ruhanya, has commended MDC-T secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora for his tendency to “take no prisoners” in his quest to grab power at all costs within the Thokozani Khupe-led party.
Ruhanya asserted that unlike MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa who lacks “cojones”, Mwonzora is committed to what he does albeit in a bad way. Said Ruhanya:
One thing I like about Mwonzora is that unlike his MDC Alliance adversaries, he is very daring and brave, never mind his sellout and undemocratic activities. He means business in his undemocratic adventures. There is clarity in his madness. MDC Alliance is not decisive on anything!
Ruhanya also castigated MDC Alliance leaders for being reactive rather than proactive in their dealings with the ruling ZANU PF.
He added that the Chamisa-led formation is losing its societal leadership position due to its ambivalence in dealing with critical issues. Ruhanya said:
At this moment and for quite some time during this unfolding Zimbabwe crisis, the MDC Alliance’s political program and response to Zanu PF’s catastrophic policies is not known. It appears to be without campus, without ideas and in a leadership political logjam
There is a huge perception in Zimbabwe that MDC Alliance is losing its leadership of society position because it’s ambiguous, ambivalent and indecisive on major issues in Zimbabwe. Bar tweeting the growing perception is that of a reactionary party with no thought leadership!
That’s my summation of MDC Alliance problematic for now. Their response is simple and predictable. Ruhanya please form your own party. My party is a critique of leaders of society. Thank you and good morning
