The Supreme Court judgment, seeking to address the constitutional problems in MDC, has not been used to the fullest advantage. It was hijacked by a few, claiming to be the advocates of constitutionalism, yet further violating the same constitution, using falsehoods. Sadly, instead of going back to the Courts, the other members of that party prefer attacking those hijackers in social medial. The Supreme Court judgment does not incapacitate the 2014 National Council, yet the hijackers make it appear as doing so.
There is a need to dispel the assumption that Chamisa is being deprived of leadership by ZANU PF, as that is not true. The reason why Chamisa is not in State House right now has got nothing to do with ZANU PF. But this is due to Chamisa’s inability to address his Achilles’ heel. Agreeably, Chamisa was catapulted to the vice presidency, by the late Morgan Tsvangirai, in violation of the MDC constitution. But this had a bearing of some supernatural guidance, impossible to understand by ordinary humans.
The delay for Chamisa to be in State House is a matter of addressing his Achilles’ heel. Here is the definition of the idiomatic Achilles’ heel, for the benefit of those unfamiliar with the idiom: “An Achilles‘ heel or Achilles heel is a weakness in spite of overall strength, which can lead to downfall. While the mythological origin refers to a physical vulnerability, idiomatic references to other attributes or qualities that can lead to downfall are common.”
Those blaming ZANU PF for the current woes in MDC are not different from ZANU PF. The MDC problems should be viewed as displaying the weaknesses of God’s chosen leader of this country. David became the leader of Israel, after having been anointed by Samuel. God had already rejected the incumbent Saul, regardless of his fake repentance (1 Samuel 15:25-29). Yet there were twenty-five years of fugitive life, before David’s ascension to power.
