To achieve what, Cde Chombo?

It appears Ignatius Chombo is not ashamed at all to expose himself for his rabid anti-MDC-T stance.

NewsDay Editorial

His behaviour over the years that the opposition party has been in charge of urban local authorities, has clearly shown that he is out to sabotage whatever programme the party may have — no matter how plausible.

It is very difficult to identify a single MDC-T idea, project or policy that Chombo has agreed with, no matter how manifestly positive these may be, how useful or successful they may later prove to be. It seems his key result area as Local Government minister, when it comes to local authorities run by the MDC-T party, is to blast them.

Where he has his way, Chombo will fire them; or where opportunity appears to arise, seek to criminalise them and get them jailed. Several have been saved by the courts after Chombo had wanted to kick them out of their jobs or have them imprisoned without cause.

Just like a traffic cop would not fail to find defect on a vehicle if he chooses to nit-pick, Chombo has found faults with MDC-T officials and fired a lot of mayors and councillors across the country for misdemeanours which, if compared to what Zanu PF councillors before them did, would make the MDC-T so-called corrupt or incompetent officials look like angels.

The colour of Chombo’s hatred of Tsvangirai’s party is most effectively made bare by his acrid relationship with his outgoing deputy, Sesel Zvidzai.

Chombo operated Local Government as if Zvidzai did not exist. There was virtually no communication between the two offices, let alone consultation.

Zvidzai got aware of developments within the ministry from the media, only to come out expressing surprise or reacting to the minister’s dismissal of officials from his party.

It must have been a big pain for Zvidzai to work with such a character. He could not be regretting having to be finally rid of him.

Now, it does not matter; the MDC-T is effectively down and out — having lost the July polls — but a vindictive Chombo is still determined to add salt to the wound — never mind in defiance of the law. He wants to dislodge Tsvangirai’s choice for mayors in the cities of Harare, Chitungwiza and Bulawayo — not because there is anything wrong with these individuals, but because the MDC-T and Tsvangirai prefer them.

Chombo is prepared to stick his neck out on the legal stake, to embarrass himself and put his reputation, integrity and all into question — just so he can prove to a fallen MDC-T party that he is the boss — as if there was anybody in doubt, given that he is the minister responsible for Local Government.

This magnitude of arrogance and vindictiveness makes the human mind numb to the shame that should accompany such ungodly behaviour as daylight robbery, corruption, national plunder and other crimes of governance.

    shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be

    the time shall come

    Gaddafi used to be big , he died a painful and humiliating death……

  6. Chombo’s mission has been , is and will be to cause untold suferring not only to urban dwellers but to every citizen. Just have a look at how the so-called traditional chiefs/ thieves fall over each other so that they be incoorperated into the league of thieves. Chombo has never archieved anything positive for this country all his years as minister. His duty is to create chaos even in Zanu pf and his family. Whatever he does or says, the people of this country have made their resolve not to have anything to do with a party that has failed them for three decades. What new ideas have they acquired on their death-bed.

  7. Chombo is driven by primitive and congenital hatred of MDC-T because Zanu PF turns a blind eye on how he gained his obscene wealth.He is one of the greatest thieves in the southern hemisphere.

  8. Why should chombo love puppets or sell outs? Just finish them off chombo. your are a lethal weapon just like your name. Small man must never waste our time.

    • I wonder who are chaineez puppets at the moment. Chombo will never finish anyone. Chidzosai zim dollar, shrink the economy by another 45%.

  9. This little paper is ever channing nonsense regai Jonah adzoke muMinistry iya akaite choke out. Twumajournalist twunenge tsanga dzechibagwe dzepaMupedzanhamo kuMbare dzisingabiki sadza. thula mani nxaaa.

    • Lol u are not forced to read newsday. There is herald which i am sure will make u smile. U are free to read any paper of yo choice.

  10. MDC zealots murikungopopota chete why not make reference to the law which Chombo is citing as the basis for his argument or atleast can we have lawyers commenting in nokuti confusion nema emotioons ndizvo zvawanda muma debates.

  11. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
    Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
    Cowardice asks the question – is it safe?
    Expediency asks the question – is it politic?
    Vanity asks the question – is it popular?
    But conscience asks the question – is it right?
    And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular; but one must take it because it is right.
    I submit to you that if a man hasn’t discovered something he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.
    Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.

  13. Chombo is without a doubt in the top three most corrupt minister of all time. The people are watching his nonsense.

  14. This gung-ho fastest gun in the west approach of Chombo has nothing to with his dislike of the MDC but all to do with his incompetence. Have you noticed even in companies the very incompetent are the best at casting aspersions on others..this is a tired self defence mechanism meant to deflect attention from self..sadly this game has been exposed to overkill..one can not use the same ‘one pony trick’ a time too many. And here begins a sad tale. The president should either rest this guy or redeploy him to an area where he does not interface too closely with the public. This is more for Chombo’s sake than the president’s and the many long suffering Zimbabweans.

  15. @ Che Guevera, kuitira munhu hasha akaita sa Guevera ha kupedza nguva nekuti mhedzisiro yacho kuseka chete. Kikiki…this Guevera guy is very funny. I think is the guy who used to post comments using the nom de plume of TRUTH HURTS.

  16. @ Che Guevera, asi mudhara pa purazi renyu pane chinofamba here? Nekuti most of the time munenge muri pa internet.

  17. Mr Editor, to quote you: “… he is out to sabotage whatever programme the party may have — no matter how plausible.”

    Care to share with us any programme, plausible or otherwise, that the party put forward?

  18. @ che guveshit…. who ever you are kutonga and kurwadzisa r diffrent u should realise dat 2008 iwe zanu neni we mavambo taishaya upfu tese. mwana wako paakashaya teacher kuprince edward wangu kuchecheche anga asina pawakatenga bulger written not for human consuption ndaivawo muline newe yet vana vevanhu vari kutaura kutonga avo vange vari mhiri zvavo zvichiita……. start thinking abt nyika nt individual unotaura kuti kudzosa nyika kuvarungu if i may ask ganda remuzhingaz ndererudziii? then uyo wamunoti chombo he is a useful person nekuti he helped his fellas vatize nemurder iwe une chikwereti che 5000 jus think kuti chaminister nhingi kana chake iye ndechemariii kufa pfungwa sandi mhosva yako

  19. Chombo is the only one who knows that a new cabinet was sworn in with him as Local Govt minister. Nobody else does, even Gusnhungo himself. What a buffoon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Read the relevant section of the constitution yesterday. Chombo’s interpretation is very correct and the editorial is wrong to criticize him. The constitution is very specific about who can be a mayor. I would suggest you all refer to this document.

  21. Kick them in them in butt Chombo. Show no mercy for sellouts. Ah ndiko kutonga kwachoka. Muchazvionawo kana motongawo if ever you will. MARUZA!

  22. @farai its nt e issue is nt challenging his intelect we are challenging his stance to stand as minister before anyone is appointed to office and rather wc section o e new constitution is dat part??????

  23. Is it not better to correct a misconception and a misinterpretation of the constitution before an illegal appointment? Then we will be rushing to the courts for determination. Further delaying the confirmation of the qualifying candidates and the focus on the service delivery job at hand. Which is the greater sin, an outgoing (most likely returning) minister making a ministerial statement or someone with absolutely no business and no standing at law making mayoral appointments? When the law is eventually followed it will be wrongly called ministerial interference!
