A political lecturer at the University of Zimbabwe, Eldred Masunungure has said the governance and human rights crisis prevalent in Zimbabwe was a threat to the mere existence of the ruling ZANU PF.
He speaks after the recently held 40th SADC meeting of heads of state and government has passed with Zimbabwe missing on the agenda. Meanwhile, the ruling party denies the existence of the said crisis. Speaking to the Daily News On Sunday on Saturday, Masunungure said:
If the crisis is not resolved quickly and decisively through some mediation, it will most likely resolve itself via self-implosion (of Zanu PF), although I doubt that this will be at the level of the State and society.In other words, I don’t envisage a civil war as some tend to fear. The implosion will be at the level of the regime and it appears the fermentation process in this regard is already underway courtesy of intra-regime contradictions.To most people, this fermentation is already visible to the naked eye. As I have tried to explain many times, the tragedy of Zimbabwe is the tyranny of a single truth which makes Zimbabwe unripe for internally-sourced solutions at this juncture.
