It was non-stop partying

Senior Zanu (PF) officials snubbed festivities held in Binga to celebrate the appointment of Mat North Provincial members to the influential politburo.

Guest of honour, Obert Mpofu, was the only senior party member to attend, with Jonathan Moyo, Cain Mathema, Sithembiso Nyoni and Thokozile Mathuthu absconding. The Chronicle has interpreted this as a snub against Obert Mpofu. Who cares!

Newsflash – two years of Zanu (PF)’s term have elapsed and none of their 2013 election promises have materialised. In 2014 there was a string of celebrations. We saw election victory celebrations continuing long after the July 2013 campaign posters had been eaten by termites. In fact, as late as November 2014, ZBC newsreaders wore ‘Gushungo Victory Cup’ regalia in the week ahead of the soccer match between Dynamos and Highlanders which was touted as ‘celebration for President Mugabe’s election victory of last year.’

Non-stop partying
Mugabe’s birthday arrives next month and I will bet my typewriter we will hear of ‘21st February movement’ until our eardrums bleed. The birthday celebrations will run for months.


Should the party not stop at some point? Does the victor celebrate for two years? Rather than all this partying, it is more important to get on with the actual work they pledged to do at their swearing in.

Come 2018, MPs will be judged by the electorate not for how many cattle they slaughtered but on the new roads they built, the investment facilitated, the availability of clean drinking water and the new jobs created. Time and tide wait for no man. Not even for a politician.
