Nelson Chamisa the MDC Alliance leader is reportedly concerned with South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa’s alleged “see no evil hear no evil” stance against President Mnangagwa and some of Africa’s wayward peers, New Zimbabwe reports.
Chamisa reportedly expressed his concern in a paper titled “Rigged Elections and The Rise of the Authoritarian Pandemic” in which he pointed out Ramaphosa’s failure during his tenure as the AU chair to censure authoritative leaders.
The youthful opposition party leader reportedly said:
The problem is counterparts that have a better culture of democracy, like South Africa, show an unhealthy reluctance to censure wayward peers. This is often done under the guise of brotherhood stemming from the liberation struggles
This is deeply retrogressive because liberation without proper democracy is meaningless. Maturing and more stable democracies like South Africa should see their peers for what they truly are: reactionary elements that have subverted the essence of liberation of the African people.
Ramaphosa however in 2020 send 2 delegations to come and talk to President Mnangagwa’s administration when human rights abuses in Zimbabwe made international headlines.
