Eddie Cross says Tsvangirai might not make it, pities Mnangagwa


“Many will argue that those who live by the sword will die in the same way, but still it’s a tough call for a man whose whole life has been dedicated to his Party and the State President, even though he knows full well, that the President, more than any other person, is at the very center of our problems and must go or the country runs the risk of either armed conflict, a coup or simply becoming a failed State.

“And if you think that these two gentlemen have been given a tough ride by life, just think about the rest of us. We have had our entire life savings wiped out and it looks like it’s happening again, we have suffered under a Military Junta of sorts and the ravages of life under a totally corrupt regime for 37 years and it shows no signs of going unless forced.

“Where does that leave us – just depending on God for our survival and for some sense that the struggle is worth it and that we must carry on.

“My own experience is that despite all that life throws at us, if we have the right attitude and real faith in God, we will discover the wonderful truth that the rest does not matter and that God does not owe us a dime. In the end we are ‘more than conquerors’.”

Mnangagwa was yesterday stripped of the Justice portfolio he held in a cabinet reshuffle which saw Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa and Foreign Affairs Minister Simbarashe Mumbengegwi demoted.

While some think the worst is over for Mnangagwa, others believe Mugabe was just testing the waters. Worse is still to come.

Yet others have gone beyond caring arguing that what is happening in the Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front does not make sense any longer.
