Biti says Mugabe and Tsvangirai have failed the nation

Opposition leader Tendai Biti says both President Robert Mugabe and former Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai have failed the nation. Mugabe represents the failure of the liberation movement while Tsvangirai is the face of the failure of the democratic struggle. Biti and Tsvangirai are involved in a tussle for the control of the Movement for Democratic Change. Biti and his lieutenants suspended Tsvangirai but Tsvangirai in turn expelled Biti and his group. Biti’s group says Tsvangirai must appear for a hearing on his suspension on Wednesday. “Zimbabwe requires new thinking, a new conversation and a new discourse. President Robert Mugabe represents the failure of the liberation movement that is ZANU-PF while Tsvangirai is the face of the failure of the democratic struggle. The two are a reflection of each other, a direct reflection of everything that is wrong with this country, politically, economically, socially and morally. We cannot therefore just fold our hands and wait for things to move on their own; we cannot be doing the same things over and over again. It is the height of insanity but, as a people, none but ourselves will rescue this nation. It is a generational calling that we must take up without reservation if we are to rescue this nation. Zimbabwe is crying for rethinking because the pre and post-independence politicians have failed the nation,” he was quoted as saying.
