Who needs the other Mnangagwa or Chamisa?


It does not appear to be either, but some third force whose agenda is not known.

A lot of people had put their hopes in Chamisa and were confident that he would win the elections. He did not. They should therefore not try to force him in.

It is not in the best interests of MDC Alliance supporters to push Chamisa into an inclusive government because as far as they are concerned he will have sold them out.

The move would definitely be good for Chamisa because it would entitle him to a good package, but that would be the end of his political career.

Some might argue that his career is over anyway, so he might as well salvage something, but once again, the question becomes: In whose interest would that be?

For ZANU-PF supporters Mnangagwa promised them during his election campaign that his party will rule Zimbabwe, and rule Zimbabwe, and continue to rule Zimbabwe with those supporting the MDC continuing to be ruled. ZANU-PF should therefore rule.

Mnangagwa was given the mandate to run the country for the next five years. He made certain promises. Let him fulfill those promises. If he does not, so be it, he should be removed.

Governments of national unity or coalitions are known the world over for only bringing stability but no economic growth, yet people want jobs, they want the economy to thrive. Mnangagwa promised both, allow him to prove it, if not the people will know what to do with him.
