Many people at home and abroad share the despair that can be felt in the tone of this article. Zimbabwe’s political arena is mared in unbelievable heinous realities characterised by plots, counterplots, killings, revenge and subotage of national systems and institutions for individual benefits. The prospect of elections is not able to excite the nation into any sufficient levels of optimism as the same perpetrators of these evils are still the same individuals whose names will be on the ballot papers.
It is disheartening That it appears the people seem to have accepted this as the only standard of politics/politician that can ever be. Politics of power, even supernatural power. Power derived from fear and a host of other horrors as are being revealed in social networking pages and blogs as the plots and counter plots thicken while former allies in the oppression of the people now start to fall out of each others favour.
The perssimists are raising their weary eyebrows saying “we ‘ve said it before: vanhu Ava imhondi, ende havabve, nyangwe zvodii.” (These people have too much blood on their hands and will never relinquish power, no matter what happens)

Those that seem to enjoy are either descendants of ZANU PF’s murderous tactics or remnants of benefits by association with the party. Those that have murdered for the party resent the onset of true democracy because they fear the wrath of rule of law will lead them to only one destination – prison.
These include architects of ZANU PF chicanery like Perence Shiri, Constantine Chiwenga, Robert Mugabe, Joice Mujuru, Didymus Mutasa and many more. They were and are still associated with crafting methods of eliminating political enemies by killing or silencing
them either in prison…
