    Please Tsvangirai must stop splitting the votes that were meant for Ncube. Tsvangirai is helping Mugabe to stay to power! He should have joined Ncube so that we oust the dictator but he thought of splitting the votes as he refused to support Ncube’s campaign to be the president of Zimbabwe. Tsvangirai is a CIO and is working with mugabe! they reached a deal during his monday morning tea with mugabe and Mutambara! We will sure punish Tsvangirai for prolonging the suffering of Zimbabwean. We will all vote for Devolution!

      Ncube and Zanu pf reached an agreement on the Eve of October 5 2005,recently he was promised mining right if he shun any form of a coalition to unseat Mugabe, he is a zanu pf project ,when it comes to Zimbabwe politics we dnt count him is nothing just ana opportunist , they promise work together with zanu pf to sabotage the wills of the people how can Zimbabwe vote fr a man who supported Makoni 2008 to prolong the suffering of people .My foot on you Jabulani people in Zimbabwe needs million jobs not devolution or indigenization.

      • Anti Tsvangirai IS NOT equal to ZANUPF July 31, 2013 at 10:28 am #

        If you must know, Ncube’s ally, Dabengwa’s team from ZAPU is the one that did a good analysis on the voters roll and published the inconsistencies.

        If he did that, how would that help his relationship with ZANU? It would make sense to let it be rigged.

        Not everyone against MDC-T is therefore ZANUPF.

        We have differing opinions. You need to get that into your head and accept it.

    People please go and exercise your rights to vote for a candidate of your choice. If you don’t want to vote for Ncube it’s your right, choose another candidate. If Zimbabweans used their votes wisely in 1980 I’m quite convinced we would be in a better position than this mess we are in right now.The onus lies with those who Mugabe in the first place, and they are the very people who are supposed to vote him out again. Some people are calling him a village politician, so why are you begging for his support now. If only we could learn from experience that tribalism is the thing of the past .

    The road to freedom has been rough…
    Until we finally said “enough”…
    Waving bye-bye to a 90-year old…
    Whose departure is as good as gold…
    He lingered like a bad smell…
    But Zimbabweans finally ring the bell…
    Smiles all over their brave faces…
    Proud they’ve removed the nutcases…
    And choosing proper aces…
    No more chefs & comrades…
    No more toyi-toyi & night raids…
    We salute our women & men…
    For bringing change by a mere pen.

On the other hand MDC-T is over playing this rigging tune it’s beginning to sound like a broken record. Why is it that none of the observors have confirmed or corroborated MDC-T’s claims? The AU has been in the country for more than 2 months and SADC even longer yet none of them has said yes indeed MDC-T have shown us evidence to back up their claims? Claiming that something is happening is not the same as evidence of it actually happening. Biti needs to tone it down a notch.

    I am not a tribalist but the calibre of Dumiso Dabengwa and Weslhman Ncube as leaders makes me sick. I used to like Joshua Nkomo and actually voted for him when this buffoon was campaigning for a one party state but to have Ncube and Dumiso by what they have said is really a mess. Even when afforde an opportunity ZBC denied him by Violet Gonda Ncube was so abusive with un comfrotable questions which made me conclude that he can never be a good leader, MDC-N must find a better leader than this one. He belongs to the gutters of politics.

    Why do we have to allow ZANU to spoile us like this

    I read with utter dismay some of the previous postings. There is one thing we all have to remember … ZANU (PF) have all the tricks under their sleeves to DENY CHANGE to 85% of Zimbabweans!!! Their machinery is being updated every minute by the Chinese as well as by the Cuban, South Africa, Malaysia and Russia Governments, just to name a few!

    The “speedy” at which these elections were called as well as the utterly disgusted way ZEC “arranged” and got prepared for these elections leaves a lot to be desired!!

    The people of Zimbabwe do not deserve to be taken as STUPID as we are not.

    In the event of ZANU (PF) winning, stealing rather, these elections, they can never say that they HAVE THE MAJORITY because that is unfounded. In previous elections that they “WON” they claimed the majority. Yes we can agree with that to a certain extent as they have THE MAJORITY OF THE MINORITY!!!

    History is clear that ZANY (PF) have never won an election in Zimbabwe and the very first one they claim was won by them was definitely HANDED TO THEM IN A PLATE BY THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT and not by the Zimbabwean people!!!

    Let’s wait and see what next …
