Election won’t solve political woes


Industry and Commerce Minister Welshman Ncube who is also the secretary general of the smaller faction of the Movement for Democratic Change says having fresh elections next year is not the answer to current political woes facing the country. “The difficult we have is that we have political gladiators understandably who are more preoccupied with proving to the nation who has less fear for the elections than the other. They have all these macho-mentality when all objective indicators show that it’s not in the national interest to talk about election or even talk about it when you have not even completed the constitution making process. Any election called by Mugabe in anger cannot be anything other than a ZANU-PF victory. It will take us back to June 2008. I don’t understand why some people think they will agree with Mugabe on a big thing like elections when they can’t agree on small things like the appointment of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Governor.” Ncube was today quoted as saying.
