WE ASK SADC to bring GNU to an end now: We demand constitutional reform, election date, and diaspora vote
GNU’s 3 years of failure: we Demand an end, because we have Economic stagnation, poor service delivery, political tension and uncertainty as well as sustained massive looting of national coffers. These remain the topical issues assailing Zimbabweans as the controversial Global Political Agreement (GPA) marked three years on the 15th September 2011.
When the GPA was signed by Zanu PF’s Robert Mugabe and the two MDC Morgan Tsvangirai and Arthur Mutambara now Ncube representing the Zimbabweans have seen nothing tangible in terms of issues the scandalous coalition government was supposed to work on achieving.
Three years after the signing of the agreement, the reformation agenda has been failing to get the required impetus due to the hypocrisy, selfishness and arrogance of all the parties involved in the Government of National Unity (GNU). Much time has been spent on squabbling and fighting for positions by Mugabe, Tsvangirai and Mutambara, at the expense of working on extricating the nation from the abyss of mismanagement, looting and corruption.
Contrary to stupid, false claims by members of the GNU, the country’s economy remains subdued and affected by low productivity, liquidity crisis and the terrible effects of power cuts on the manufacturing sector. There is no substance to the claims that there has been ‘revival’ of the economy by the GNU failures. Unemployment in Zimbabwe remains at unacceptable levels of over 80% and the few that are working continuously grapple with the effects of very low incomes. Water and power problems are just the tip of the iceberg that is more aptly embodied by the long-standing malaise at Air Zimbabwe as well as other institutions at the mercy of the greedy GNU looters to prove the huge failure to improve the macro-economic fundamentals.
If anyone still believed the hullabaloo and lies about the so-called ‘national healing and reconciliation’ programme, the recurrence of political violence involving the same parties in the GNU rubbishes this charade. Recent violent clashes involving Mugabe and Tsvangira’s thugs at parliament merely exposed the reality of how Zimbabwe has remained haunted by the demon of political uncertainty and tension, which as we all know, works in favour of violent, blood-thirsty dictators.
Zimbabwe’s rural areas are still gripped by state-sponsored terrorism that makes poor peasants lose their dignity and humanity. Finally, it is only instructive that all three years down the line, the GNU charlatans still up to now waste time on ‘negotiations’, thereby showing this has been a huge failure.
GNU must come to an end and we are about to embark on a national programme of mobilizing Zimbabweans to protest peacefully in demand of an end to the circus of Mugabe, Tsvangirai, Mutambara.
Our position is this:
1-constitutional process to end by November 2011
2-election date must be set by end of November 2011
3-diaspora vote: diaspora must be allowed to vote
