Zimbabwe: Madhuku Announces New Political Party

Zimbabwe: Madhuku Announces New Political Party thumbnail

HARARE — In a surprise development on May Day, the National Constitutional Assembly (NCA) chairman, Lovemore Madhuku, exploited the Workers Day commemorations in the capital to announce that the NCA would morph into a political party following fresh elections later this 2013 after some internal elections.

Dr. Madhuku, who was guest of honour at the event organized by the concerned  affiliates of the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions at Raylton Sports Club,  said his party would represent workers’ interests.

The vocal University of Zimbabwe law professor stated that despite the MDC’s past links with the ZCTU, recent developments had confirmed that the MDC had completely forgotten about the workers’ plight and had rather joined the Zanu PF gravy train in the national plunder of resources.

He urged workers to amass and strategize to advance their concerning causes since the former trade union leaders, now in the MDC leadership, had crossed the floor, turned apostate and thereby taught Zimbabwean workers a good lesson not to trust in political parties.

MDC 99 president Job Sikhala, representatives from the MDC formation led by Welshman Ncube and Makoni’s MKD and various civil society organizations attended the Raylton commemorations which were held under the theme “Fighting for poverty datum line, workers safety and empowerment.”

Police unsuccessfully tried to disrupt the commemorations at Raylton but organizers refused to back down as they maintained that in terms of the law, trade unions did not require any police permission to commemorate international workers day.

    You are saying Tsvangirai has forgotten the plight of workers and workers must not trust political parties, whay should we trust you as well?

    OK. So he alleges the MDC has joined the ZANU-PF gravy train? And now Madhuku feels left out? Cry my beloved Zimbabwe!

    Predictable. Musoro banga has always been a power hungry learned idiot. What’s the point of a new and useless political party now?

    Ki ki ki ki ki ki, Prof Musoro Banga! Iwe Mavambo usade kuita seusingazivi munyati uripo. Mavambo, MDC 99, Zapu, former MDC T and MDC disgruntled members are all coming together to form a party. To me and my party Zanu Pf, this is a welcome development that will further tear apart our enemy, MDC T.

    Sorry guys, lets differ without name calling. Madhuku has every right according to all our constitutions, past and present, as does Mugabe, Ncube, Tsvangirayi, Makoni, you and me; to form and lead a political party of his choice. All he has to do is to get willing supporters! Why the hate? Would hate me for forming a football team to contest with Highlanga and DeMbare?The same as in politricks. Let Madhuku form his party, the onus is on your parties not to lose supporters to his. But with the way inoda marokwe yo leaders, the way they became overnight corrupt millionares, the way they are inconsistent and can not articulate their policies, the way they are always stonned instead of campaigning; Madhuku will teach some of you one or two tricks.

    Tsvangira believes in kutonga uchisiirawo vamwe. He was NCA chairman ndokusiira Lovie Maduku but Lovie Maduku haachada kusiirawo vamwe. He overstayed his term of office as chairman of NCA. Honestly, we cant be ruled by such. He lost in the referendum clear pasina run off and he could not accept it. What kind of a leader who only wants his own way. PASI NAMADUKU! ALL PROGRESSIVE ZIMBABWEANS SHOULD RALLY BEHIND DR TSVANGIRAI AND LETS FINISH MUGABE AND ZANU PF ONCE AND FOR ALL!

    Madhuku ran down the NCA and looted all the donor funds.As we speak workers at NCA have had no pay for 14 months and have approched the court for relief and help.Madhuku is a doctor in doctoring constitutions and removing term limits at UCCZ church and in the NCA.He is the life president of the youth at church

  21. Popotaimuchaneta on Sat, 4th May 2013 6:35 am 

    When mdc was formed the then opposition did not complain because they knew it was a democratic right. Why should they be angry with madhuku forming his own? After all they’ve done nothing except celebrating sanctions, self agrandizing and womanizing. Come on Madhuku, it’s your democratic right. If tsvangirai believes in kusiira vamwe 14yrs ishoma?

    The curse of being a professor is catching onto prof Madhuku. Look at e whole lot of them Moyo , Mutambara, Ncube and now. Madhuku. What do they have in common – all professors schooled in books but not life – in real life they r the dullest pple alive all gone bonkers

  23. Chinembiri on Sun, 5th May 2013 1:18 am 

    Tsvangirai has been MDC President for 14 years, is it not overstaying in power by force???Professor Madhuku ndizvo he is a brave man.
