I WRITE as someone that has previously written, and been known as a supporter of the MDC. But, I guess in this life we are all allowed at least one mistake, and mine was to think that despite having a brother and a sister that went to Mozambique to fight for our country, I knew better. I did not. You will hear a lot of rubbish about rigging and ZEC that and voters’ roll that, but, speaking as someone that was on the other side, the MDC lost this election because politically, they are naive.
Their naiveté is not helped by the fact that they are led by the stupidest man this side of heaven.
Because of this fact, which I believe he is aware of, Tsvangirai has gone about decimating his own party, removing anyone that was intelligent or could connect to the people, and all the while hoping that this would keep him popular.
It did not. He rigged his own primaries, rigged his own congress, sent delegations to rig elections in the Diaspora for their assemblies, and now, because that is the only way he knows to win elections, assumes that when others win, they must have rigged.
