    • A shadow cabinet is not a bad idea in a truly democratic country. It represents an alternative voice and government in waiting in the event that elections reverse the status quo. The shadow Ministers can often provide useful ideas and contribute to national development if politicians put national ahead of personal interests. Unfortunately in our beloved country the opposition is viewed as an enemy and the people who fought the war of liberation have installed themselves as leaders for life- there is no life for Zimbabwe after these people die.

      • vaudze hako iwe mazhang aya. for them there will be no Zimbabwe after they die, and there was never a Zimbabwe before zanu was formed. they forget that even the zhang party when it was fighting the war had a shadow government. They will also conveniently forget that their leader achimwene has been at the helm of their rag tag band of thieves and murderers party for donkey years. And that same ACHIMWENE they mistake for a gushungo has been at the helm of our nation for 33 years, most of them by self imposition, coercion rigging….every dirty, illegal and treasonous act you can imagine, nyaraiwo mhani. How do seemingly intelligent people get enchanted with a 90 year old bag- o- bones that is now wearing adult diapers??

      • Yes your analysis is quite good, but however the biggest loophole lies with the MDC officials, had it been that they are intellectually well up I suppose that they must be consulted in the running of the ministerial chores. Diplomatically they are too pride that after consultation they will go about saying Zanu is out of ideas, let them be humble, You know what happened with Mandela, he left his deputy president frm the opposition party as the acting president but he didn’t went abt bragging around but he had to learn a lot. Not that Mandela’s gvt was perfect corruption was there but the issue of humility only!!! MDC must not be taken in failure and confusion as a party bcoz it tells us tt hw much more if it was a gvt? Being in failure to withstand the aftermath of the elections with inside troubles and confusion needs focus. Disappointed indeed with MDC, its just like Zanu in its policies, party centric not people centric just corrupt as their brother………….

      • This is the way forward.While our guys attend parliament business it entails that each of them has a specific ministry to monitor & contribute to our nation’s building despite being taken as enemies by zanu pf.They are practicing their rightful portfolios which were stolen on July 31.

      • haaa u have a point wangu and they shld include the youth in ministries lyc defence,finance kana madhara afa aya tchaita sei… wen i was in grade 1 i wished to b a president or @ least a minister bt now i realised kty twas a mere wish coz the same old folks stay in thoz posts

    • All opposition parties world over have shadow governments. So they did what is expected. The first degree of organization I have seen from MDC T since the election.

      I think the MDC should call for a special congress and the leadership should offer themselves for re-election or else political oblivion looms for some.

      My take is Morgan Tsvangirai should take the next available opportunity to contest as an MP so he can go back to Parliament and engage Mugabe directly.

      And finally, MDC T took mayoral posts, their MPs were sworn into parliament, therefore indirectly endorsing a fraudulent election. They must accept defeat. That to me is the starting point.

      • You are damn right! MPs and councillors inauguration and’ Mayors elections are an indication of how MDC has ‘naively’ and ‘indirectly’ endorsed the election they are on record of describing as a huge farce. Now this announcement of this shadow cabinet is further legitimizing this election robbery. However, I reckon this is the right way to take. Concede defeat, put the house in order and come back to the ring. The special congress is now a necessity not a choice in order for the leaders to be given a fresh mandate. On Tsvangirai participating in parliament by elections, when and if the opportunity arises, I wouldn’t agree with you more. MT should at least get in parliament to fight from within ‘the house’. Now let’s how the shadow cabinet will influence government policy. Quite interesting how our politics is shaping up! Hope there won’t be wrong turns along the road.

      • @ taps

        Yes, but those opposition parties who have shadow cabinets recognise the government of the day. The problem I have with the MDC-T is that they said they dont recognise the executive including the gukurahundi Mugabe’s presidency!!

      • Tsvangirayi cannot not go back to parliament. He was never in Parliament. He was in the executive, the cabinet. He can’t go there unless he was a member of ZANU PF

    • Are you telling the people of Mat South that they dont have to be represented in the shadow cabinet Maybe they are not educated, but I doubt! Be serious, there some very capable individuals that I know who could easily improve the quality of your CABINET! Or is it because they lost all the seats! Devolution of POWER!

      • @Hango. I stand to corrected here but my understanding is that the shadow cabinet comprises of elected MPs who attend parliament business & not those outside parliament.How can one articulates ministerial obligations outside parliament.

    • Mdc-t should make sure in the next congress they elect a better National Chairman and Organizing secretary why am l saying so Lovemore Moyo is very tribal and inefficient also Chamisa is very educated but fueling confussion in the structures during the days of Mudzuri thr was order the tendecy of Thokozani Khupe,Albert Mhlanga,Gordon Moyo and Dorcas Sibanda manipulating structure and forming parallel structures was taboo.

  1. At long last chematama has accepted defeat by announcing his shadow cabinet. This is your starting point on the long journey to 2018 elections. Please make sure that all your supporters register as voters asap. Come 2018, we dont want you crying when we beat you again. Icho!

  2. Stop insulting my President you idiots.Mr Tsvangirai is right,very correct,and I must say that you zanu pf thugs hell bent on trying to destroy the Democratic Party(MDC T) are shallow minded.

    Mr Tsvangirai is going nowhere,and we want him to face Teurairopa Mujuru or Mnangagwa in the next coming elections.This is a good move by President Tsvangirai keep it up.You have our support,do not tire.

    • Tell thm Joseph thiz idiotic people of zanu pf a paralysed in mind.come 2018 tirikutungamira nyika ino nt zvemazida ushe ezanu izvi zvekuda kuuraya ruzhinji nenzara vashoma vachiguta.

    • Good .Mr Tsvangirai is going nowhere.you are right here .The president once said “tsvangirai will not rule this country even over my dead body.western puppets”

    • To start drip irrigation at at Humanikwa village as soon as possible because vakadzi vake vanoda kudya. Tsvangy wapererwa nepfungwa manje kuita shadow MUDHOSVO government

      • @chamatama.You are truly dead .@chomuruvata .wakangofanana nemushakabvu.By declaring that OUR PRESIDENT won’t rule this country is just rhetoric like “there won’t black in Rhodesia even in a 1000” years by Ian Douglas Smith

  3. The shadow gov is as follows:

    President & 2 Deputy Presidents: Tsvangirai
    Senior Minister of Chokwadi: Mwonzora
    Minister of trade and related portfolios: Simba Makoni
    Minister of employment: Kay
    Minister of foreign Affairs and related portfolios: Phunyu
    Minister of all remaining portfolios: Chamisa
    Minister of Finance: Hosiah Chipanga

    more to follow!

  4. How can you have a shadow cabinet of a government you do not recognise?

    These MDC Teas & Buscuits are very, very confused.

    You said you only recognise parliament, not the excutive. The gukurahundi cabinet is the executive and you have clearly pronounced that you dont recognise it. In other words it does not exist, as far as your mantra goes. So, how then can you have a shadow cabinet of a non existent executive?

    Ubumbulu finish – imisila phansi. Tails between the legs!!

    LOL! GIQIKA NGOHLEKO WENA GREEN MACHINE!!!!

    • @Punyuka this is now your new name From Mbonisi to Punyuka to Gukurahundi Upbringing!! You are talking of the Green Machine in this time and age? Jumping ship from Highlanders to CAPS United, From MDC-T to MDC-N. Ulahlikile mpho.

  5. Tell thm Joseph thiz idiotic people of zanu pf a paralysed in mind.come 2018 tirikutungamira nyika ino nt zvemazida ushe ezanu izvi zvekuda kuuraya ruzhinji nenzara vashoma vachiguta.

  6. i am not sure if people know what shadow cabinets are for. very useful for making sure the formal cabinet works. just dont rush to critise morgan. please you may regret soon in your celebration of his loose. most of you zanu guys, your win in the past election is as good as a wedding. in this case, it is a wedding and at present you are in a honeymoon, but soon you will be in the reality of a marrige when the honeymoon is over. please start thinking about how to make you marrige work, than to concentrate on the guy you have rejected for your husband zanu. if you keep looking at this guy mdc you may end up seeing after all that he has better features than your husband zanu. or maybe you will end up committing aldultury with other man like zapu, mdc 99 etc

  7. “Shadow cabinet” seyi? Tsvangirai arikuda kuti “parallel cabinet” nekuti “shadow cabinet” are members of the largest opposition party who speak on particular areas of policy and would hold ministerial jobs if that party were in government. Avekuzosungwa ne ZanuPF manje. Politics dzemu Africa akomana – confusion yega yega,

  8. save varicorrect coz kwasara nguva doko kuti vatonge zim mazanu muchida musingade. zvsave ndezvashe kwete zvekwamarange.

  9. Zvachinja futi. Tsvangirai has done this to pre-empt or disarm any attempts by those named in the “shadow cabinet” to breakaway from the sinking ship called MDC-T, or to try and topple him. Re-arranging deckchairs on the Titanic.
    This also means he has now accepted the outcome of the 31 July 2013 election as legitimate. What a lot of confusion! The man is worse than useless. A waste of space.

    • @Musona. I think you are reading this issue wrongly.Take your time you will grasp the idea.You can’t just wake up & conclude that the likes of Biti,Mashakada & Chamisa can’t reason on their own.Remember these moves are taken after thorough considerations.If you think you can be the solution to our Zim problems,just enter the field of play & feel the heat.

  10. This is the way to go SAVE and Team MDC. If there is no strategy you are criticised, if you put your house in order they criticise. Kwavo vanoda kutonga, kwevamwe voda kutonga. Motokari inochovhewa nemuchairi umwe chete. Congratulations for those chosen to stand in for the shadow ministerial portfolios, put structures of cross-checking in place and make sure that your portfolio is visible and vibrant. Legitimize the election, the election was engineered and is known to be a world record of smart rigging and many countries are following, the celebratory mood is deafening as it is not a natural stimuli.

    Gushungo is going to clean his own men, he has started with the former ZMDC boss and if he is serious, we will see the known culprits dealt with and that means the majority in the rigging party will go and this shadow arrangement will come handy, let wait and see how it will unfold.

  11. I am not in politics zvanguka but this touched me.Sure it touched me.I think this man steel have a lot of faith.Truly speaking its only one day…one day.

  12. A welcome development from mdc, nothing wrong with shadow governments, lets see how they contribute to the overall running of the country.

  13. Kana wati iwe wave kuita “shadow cabinet” wave kureva kuti wa bvuma kuti ma elections a 31 July 2013 wabvuma kuti akange akaitwa zvinemurawuka?
    By talking of a “shadow cabinet” Tsvangirai is in effect agreeing that the recent election on the 31 July was legitimate.
    The man is totally confused – he is trying to douse a fire by spraying the fire with petrol or water.
    We want to know if the MDC-T still thinks the sanctions should be lifted against ZanuPF as was the case when they were power-drunk in the GNU?

    • This issue is beyond the legitimacy issue my bro.These guys are really looking beyond what you think is all about .Great thinkers cannot be cry babies lest losing focus.They are on course.Congratulations to you all who have made it into this SHADOW cabinet.

  14. Yes the party is right at least that gives these men something to work on especially if they feel like being future ministers. Letting them wonder how they failed in the election makes them weak But now they can keep themselves ambitious

  15. @Musona
    Agreeing or whatever you call it, the legitimacy of an election is not something which can be proven by words let us give the result of the legitimate election have actions then we read between the lines

  16. wat save haz done itz nt bad, tz a political strategy and a clear indication of a party wit a Vision, ”dat luks in2 e future”…..wat lm sure of iz dat if Save iz e annointed leader of Zimbabwe by Yahweh, wen e tym of Yahweh arrivz no one can stand or stop it,remember, ” Yahweh cld hve created everything in a blink of an eye bt h took hiz tym wich impliez dat he knwz e ryt tym and season of everything.mind u Yahweh’s wayz re far nt lyk our wayz – this ampliez in yo own life….letz watch, wait and c

  17. M .T has done a good idea bt shld give a better portfolio for this tonga guy coz binga is his stronh base//we are watching

  18. The MDCs dont have to concede defeat, because they were not defeated in a free and fair election. The election was stolen by the gukurahundis, who already had the levers of power anyway.

    This is why in the MDC green team, we have decided to work with them. In other words we recognise them as the government of the day, though they are not legitimate in our eyes. The reality is that they are the government and there is nothing we can do about this.

    The MDC-T’s problem is that they refuse to recognise them – thus they find themselves in a quandry. Indirectly recognising them and yet refusing to openly say so – what purpose does that serve?

  19. And Morgan becomes……SHADOW PRESIDENT! Morgan can’t win an election even in his own house, remember he has never been challenged for the MDC-T presidency.
    Morgan will never directly accept defeat because that will open up his leadership of the party to a challenge. “He didn’t loose, he was cheated, he actual did win the shadow elections” what a waste of political space!

    • @farai
      But that equally applies to the gukurahundi in your gukurahundi party, mfondini?

      Since Ndabaningi Sithole was kicked our of gukurahundi ZANU, who elected the gukurahundi and who did he stand against and how many elections has he stood in and won to date – I mean party elections, not national elections?

  20. Malume @Guks, and that makes you a better party because at least you ZANU-PF as the government of the day? How so? Sometimes it better to say nothing!
    Upi lo Welshman, lomfana kaNcube? Does he still have a party seeing as he has no following?

  21. In the real world of real politics, a shadow cabinet should mirror the real cabinet. It therefore follows that the portfolios should be exactly the same as the official portfolios. In this case Tsvangison has created his own ministries. How do you expect a shadow of a non-existent body? Apa vanhu ve MDC-Tea munongoti chero zvaitwa na Tsvangison ndizvo 100%. Pamwe kusaziva semutungamiriri wenyhu hameno but talk to your lawyers exective members they will tell you the truth, although they will obviously not tell their boss, wanting him to make a fool of himself so they can show their relative intelligency.

  22. Liliam Timveso a nusery school teacher, teacher we grade sero appointed Shadow home affairs minister ,,,,, Morgiza kwana

  23. Shadow cabinet should be allowed to take part in parliamentary debate, that way the ruling party won’t sleep on the job.

  24. faith is claiming the unseen it is believing that everything is working together for your good regardless of your current situation.Faith is seeing the promised land without considering the challenges.Mr President this is a leap of faith and you are going to reap what you sow.GOD bless MDC

  25. @ yahwez asi une ka G -TIDE kasingabvume macharacters akawanda. Why are you abbreviating to a point of not making sense yet there is ample space to write your thoughts stupid and appalling as they are.

  26. Seriously guys its no longer funny Tsvangirai ndibaba wevamwe vanhu, ndisekuru wevamwe vanhu, ndileader wevanhu vashoma pane vaMugabe, murume wevakadzi hobho and we should give him respect.

    Starting with newsday, why do you always choose the photo when Tsvangirayi is at his ugliest. Mune agenda imi.

    Asi iwe Tsvangirayi dai wakabvuma kukundwa you would be a hero in the eyes of many. Zvino you are always putting yourself in a position where you have to capitulate inindava. He ndini ndine makey , he ndini ndine yese. Ipi yacho.

    Chaona people have moved on Macouncillors ako akakurasisa, Mwonzora the fake laywer anzwa nekukuruzisa macourt battle, three by elections makarohwa. Your western handlers attended parliament opening and sang praises for Gushungo. EU has lifted sanctions on ZMDC.

    Baba vangu iwe bonga praise makes good men better and in your case bad men worse. Usanyeperwe nevanokuti une yese .Start acting mature if you really hate Mugabe that much dzosera imba nemota dzake. Wafanana kudhara mwana anebhora reskin aiterwa neboys dzese dzichimupa manigga iye achivhaira achiti iwe une nzara hombe unobora bhora rangu. Unfortunately aigona kuramba achidara asingazive kuti muraini maita mumwe anebhora nyowani wanike atove irrelevant. Usabatirire mupast glory which came about as a result of people suffering due to sanctions.Unonyadza save

    • @save haatonge – long comment but with no sense at all. Tsvangirai haana kuchenjera asi zvawakutaura zvana sanctions hazvina musoro. Isu vamwe tinoda kuti ma sanctions arambe aripo – nekuwedzerwa dai zvaiita.

  27. hezvo Tsvangirai is constantly referring to President Mugabe as President Mugabe. He even says they are going to follow agenda set up by President Mugabe.

    Notice how he calls out names of his people without any respect. Maiwe tererai Press Conference iyi kana muchida kunzwa hudofo.

  28. You demoted Thamssanqa Mahlangu from the REAL cabinet in favour of your close allies and now you want to use him to re-gain your lost ground. Please use those you promoted to lead your demise….

    • @farai – ini, mudzimai wangu, vaningina vangu 4, madziami avo, vana vavo, vana vangu, vana ve vana vangu, vana vevanun’guna vangu, madzisekuru angu 8, madzimai avo, vana vavo – havapere. Urikuvunza nonsense.

  29. Mukati zvaMishaiverengwi zvirizvoga; Obert hokoyo, wabatwa iwe, nyaya yako yekuba madiamonds, regai tione kuti vanosungana here.

  30. Thumps up Morgan you are a star. Remember the doctors according to Gedion predicted that yo enemy number one will not go through 2013 and we are still in 2013 if he is lucky he mighty go another year but not 2018 bcoz cancer would have finished the few that is left.So it is still likely that you will be president of this country before 2018

  31. There is nothing wrong with the SHADOW CABINET. The role of opposition in parliament is to exert pressure in government to deliver. Its a well orchestrated and developed move by MDC. Those who are ignorant of its role and legitimacy should seek clarification from Bob and his cabinet. How can people castigate Mdc for this noble idea and duly cherish the phsycomoto ministry. Politics have changed world over, Zimbabwe will never be a one party state again.

  32. Tsvangirai you are a hypocrite. Who is always waking up and shouting that Mugabe must Go? You failed the people please go or the people will remove you violently! Sounds familiar hey Tsvangirai?

    • Any zimbabwean can ask for mugarbage’s departure because he holds national office on behalf of all Zimbabweans. no one outside of zanu can ask for Mugabe to step down from his leadership of zanupfutseke. Its an affair for zanu. Similarly, anyone who is not mdc can demand that tsvangirai step down from leadership of MDC. Its an MDC affair. Hope you get it now. Its not that hard.

  33. If this is a reflection of the cabinet he had in mind if he had won, good thing he lost. Where on earth does he get some of those shaddy characters. Some of them well known Zanu activists. Does MT consult anyone before making some of his usually uninformed decisions…?? I wonder.

  34. @musona, just as I suspected, it does sound like a generational curse or genetic affliction. In both cases izvi zvinoda kushandirwa nemaprofita akasimba!

    A political fanatic is someone who starts of fighting for a cause, along the way they forget why they are fighting but continue fighting anyway.

    Sounds like no one told you that we have majority rule now, black people are free and in charge. Sanctions are no longer relevant and Smith is no more.
    You are still in the 70’s man!

    • @farai – what are you talking about? The EU, America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand have imposed restrictions on ZanuPF. Are you not aware of that? What has Smith got to do with these restrictions you ignorant idiot? You get yourself in knots about what you call “political fanatics” and “generational curse”. Using phraes which you don’t understand – idiot

    • @farai – what are you talking about? The EU, America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand have imposed restrictions or sanctions on ZanuPF. Are you not aware of that? What has Smith got to do with these restrictions you ignorant idiot? You get yourself in knots about what you call “political fanatics” and “generational curse”. Using phrases which you don’t understand – idiot

    • @farai – There is one idiot called farai who has had a go at me for saying sanctions against ZanuPF must subsist. He says, “Sounds like no one told you that we have majority rule now, black people are free and in charge.
      “Sanctions are no longer relevant and Smith is no more.
      “You are still in the 70′s man!”

      Here is what Mugabe said when he opened Parliament on the 17 September 2013 (2 days ago) about sanctions
      “On the other hand, Zimbabwe will continue to demand the immediate and unconditional removal of the illegal SANCTIONS imposed by some Western countries.
      “Regionally, we will continue to play an active role in the African Union, Comesa and Sadc where we have recently been elected as Deputy Chair.”

    • @farai – Only yesterday there was a heading in block letters saying “EU lifts sanctions on ZMDC” and the artilce’s first paragraph was as follows, “THE European Union (EU) has agreed to lift sanctions on a Zimbabwean diamond-mining firm despite concerns over alleged fraud in a July election that kept President Robert Mugabe in power, the EU said yesterday.” but someone disputes the existence of sanctions in Zimbabwe!

      You need to see a psychiatrist – you are living in a world of your own.

  35. No problem with shadow cabinet if MT accepts defeat. At the same time for it to be relevant it shouldn’t denounce everything that Zanu says,because it is now a “national shadow cabinet” and MT should tell his MPs not to shun national events because it doesn’t help to only come on the board to only criticise and get the allowances

    • no linkage between forming a shadow government and conceding defeat in nikuv election. when zanu was at war against the smith regime, they had a shadow government wani? Did that legitimize ian smith’s rule? No it didn’t.

  36. It has been said publicly, macdes, zviroto hazvina kushata! Why doesnt someone in MDC realise the man is not presidential material….Chinjai vakomana, join ZANUPF!

  37. Guyz lets stop talking about elections,lets talk about bread and butter issues that we need from these new pseudo ministers.If the new gvt is to perform,it is bcoz of mdc,remember the oppositions the world over , capitalise on sitting gvt weaknesses,so if mugabe gvt duz not perform,then they are facing it in 2018.An opposotion party is good for balanced views in govenance,and a sitting gvt is kept on toes by opposition.So lets not hate tsvangirai,in fact lets encourage him in his effort to expose gvt weaknesses,bcoz at the end of the day its not the name ZANU PF or MDC that brings food on the table.Its doing the right thing that we need.Lets not bhave like supporters of CAPS and DYNAMOS,who are always at each other’s throat,but at the end of the day these supporters do not gain from these teams.The coaches of these teams would not stop their cars to give u a lift bcoz u are their supporter.Guyz lets show political maturity for the betterment of our country.

  38. Yep. These are our true ministers.

    Kana Biti asati ataura hapana dhiri IMF kana Donor Hakuna.

  39. Ahhhhhh kushaya basa. A shadow cabinet of some people who are not even in government. How and where dothey shadow? Vanhu Ava vane dambudziko re ignorance chokwadi. Vabatsireiwo

  40. this is a superior cabinet than the gukurahundis. if mugabe sees it, he will be wishing otherwise and that is a fact. Viva Tsvangirai and the rest of the team. Ndizvo save

  41. There is one idiot called farai who has had a go at me for saying sanctions against ZanuPF must subsist. He says, “Sounds like no one told you that we have majority rule now, black people are free and in charge.

    I think this guy called farai needs to see a psychiatrist – he is living in a world of his own.

  43. m disheartened with the level of thinking at this platform . y is it such a big issue for electoral recognition when u a truelly sure you won the election ,y do u attack the md c president in his personal capacity muchimutuka , i think some of u guys should commit just a fraction of ur mentall capacity then it may b interesting a bit rather than displaying such gullible and shallow mindsets

  44. Tsvangirai has gone crazy, coz to me he is trying to make himself relevant when in actual fact is irrelevant. How can he name a cabinet outside a legitimate gvt. to me this is clear terrorism. he clearly denied to be part of the current cabinet yet he went on to name a cabinet, thus he deserved to be put behind bars.
    From what he did it is clear that, he does not have the people who voted some of his party members as MPs at heart. how are the wishes of those who voted his party members going to be fulfilled if he works from the sidelines lyk he chose to do?

  45. Those who advocating for his removal are meant to damage MDC.This is because they know that tsvangirai will remain a threat to zanu pf.These pple want to eliminate MDC through the removal of its leader.Manje manyangira yawona,Tsvangirai haazobvipo kusvika apedzisa basa rake raakatumwa naMwari kuzopedzisa.The holy spirit is with MDC and wait,come 2018 you will see that God has a plan with this party.SAVE NGATIFAMBE NERWENDO RWEDU,TINOSVIKA CHETE.

  46. No ways Morgan just go and dug yr own grave zanu is fr pple and life for ever and ever and fr all the mdc members its now late to complete the journey which was already finished !!! I’m sorry guys 5 years is not much long bt its life as let’s just forget about everything touches politics and started building our lives and our beautiful zimbaremahwe

  47. I think Save has done well by appointing a shadow cabinet. He seems to be good at being opposition while Mugabe is good at ruling. I think this should continue beyond 2018. As opposition Morgan should continue to opposing while those in power should continue to rule till AMEN!!!!!!

  48. @musona, you so expose your intellectual deficiencies it must be sore. I said sanctions are no longer relevant, is that to deny their existence? The sanctions that you and your insignificant family want maintained and increased were imposed as a regime change tool. Now that regime change has failed and has no hope of ever succeeding, why do you and your insignificant family insisting on having more of them? Rather dull and dense don’t you think?

    Do you even know why you want sanctions maintained and increased? Is there an end object for you and your insignificant family. I understand why the west wanted them but even them realize they have failed.

    I would rather be an idiot than be insane, what sanity is there in a man who calls for sanctions that affect him, his wife, his siblings, his children, their children and his relatives? Sanctions against Smith made sense. Against your own? Only a strong muporofita can help you.
