Why are people falling all over each other to defend Chamisa?


If we accept this reasoning for argument’s sake, what this simply means is that ZANU-PF is smarter than the MDC?

In the 18 years that Tsvangirai was at the helm of the MDC, those who did not agree with him left the party to form their own brands but they failed. Only Gabriel Chaibva crossed he floor. In less than three years at the top, three key people- Tongai Matutu, Blessing Chebundo and Lilian Timveos- have left the MDC to join ZANU-PF.

The MDC can call the defectors all sorts of names but isn’t it time people started asking what is wrong in the MDC? If all the problems in the MDC are being caused by ZANU-PF, is this not an admission that ZANU-PF is smarter than the MDC?

With elections only 24 months away, people must be worried about what those defecting to ZANU-PF are taking to that party.

Still no one dares blame Chamisa and his leadership though the party seems to be bleeding. Instead, we are told he is strategising.

Is he? Really!
