Desperation and politics in Zimbabwe

TOP del.icio.us

Having just read Amanda’s blog, so aptly titled Operation Flip Flop, I wanted to remind her about this recent quote from the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC)

The mistake that Zanu-PF is making is to imagine that we are desperate to be in the government. We are not in a hurry to be chauffeur-driven. We are a people-driven party. ~ Nelson Chamisa National Spokesperson for MDC

    Well remembered Bev, thanks. I’ll be sure to pass that along to the colleague in the office who said that Tsvangirai is more desperate than Mugabe.

    I suppose, as long as his chauffeur is a person, that will be just fine. thanks!!

    It’s time that people who’ve paid a heavy price to support him, are told just exactly what is going on with Morgan Tsvangirai. A short term memory problem? Was he actually assessed by a professional, after that terrible beating and head injury he took? (That is a serious question BTW). Or has he always shown these liabilities as a leader who cannot stick to a single decision without being propped up by others?

    Here in SA we are now even more confused – is our President a bare faced liar or does he really believe that the MDC has given in? I dread to think what ordinary Zimbabweans must be making of this “Operation Flip Flop”.
