Mujuru will win presidential elections: PDP

THE splinter People’s Democratic Party (PDP) led by Lucia Matibenga says it is optimistic that People’s Rainbow Coalition (PRC) presidential candidate, Joice Mujuru will win this year’s presidential elections if electoral reforms are implemented before the polls.

PDP vice-president, Sikhumbuzo Ndiweni told Southern Eye they were confident Mujuru would win if the military stays out of the electoral process and citizens are allowed to freely express themselves in a free and fair environment.

“Mujuru will come first if there is no abuse of State machinery and resources to campaign for a factional Zanu PF,” he said, adding the media must be allowed to operate freely and international observers invited.

Ndiweni also said if vote buying using food, inputs and other incentives is stopped, PRC’s chances to win will further be increased.

“Without rigging, Mujuru and PRC will win Mashonaland East, Central and West. The other three competitors will split Harare, Bulawayo and other cities, with Mujuru in the lead, followed by Morgan Tsvangirai (MDC-T) and Emmerson Mnangagwa (Zanu PF) coming as the third,” he said.

Ndiweni said Mnangagwa and Zanu PF were likely to fare badly in the region because of their failure to address the contentious Gukurahundi issue.

“In Midlands and Masvingo, it’s 40%, 30% and 30 split, with MDC Alliance taking the lead. This will only happen if the MDC Alliance does not implode before election due to Tsvangirai’s failure to unite and give guidance to his dwindling party,” he said.

“A run-off will be necessary only if MDC limps the way it is doing till elections. If they implode or split, then Mujuru and PRC will automatically inherit those votes and win by huge margins.

“Now, after loss, the army faction will blame Mnangagwa and condemn him to pension and take over, not realising it will be the end of Zanu PF. So this election, without fear or favour, is pregnant with a possibility of a Mujuru victory and birth of real Zimbabwe.

“The taking over of reins (of power) is guaranteed by the fact that PRC, Zimbabwe, Sadc, South Africa and the international community can’t afford a successive third coup in a row, first Tsvangirai in 2008, Mugabe in 2017; in 2018 (Zimbabwe) Defence Forces have no ace card.”

PRC comprises of PDP, Mujuru’s National People’s Party and a few other smaller parties. Tsvangirai leads the MDC Alliance, whose partners include Tendai Biti’s PDP, Transform Zimbabwe led by Jacob Ngarivhume and Welshman Ncube’s MDC.

  1. PDP pse give us a break, we are not in the mood of jokes, we need to focus on economic rebuilding under the caretaker leadership of ED.

    1. Eliaha say u are not in the mood, do not represent us the people in Mashonaland Central, West and East. Mujuru is our candidade of choice. Your peronal opinion or liking of Mnangagwa its your right and keep us away from your likes.

      1. Ha ha ha ….Mujuru manje…please woke up!

      2. Incidentally i am from Mash Central and the sentiments i echoed resonant well with that province.

  2. Sekuru Chaminuka

    Comment…Its correct. Just think if zpf continue to recall its mps because they dont have lacoste DNA, how many will remain in Masheast, Mashcentral, Mashwest and Manicaland? As it stands ED and his lacoste cabal have a minority govt and can only rule with the consent of MDc-T and G-40. On the eve of the planned impeachment of Gushungo, the Lacoste cabal entered into agreement with MDC-T in order to achieve 2/3(two thirds) majority as required by the constitution.

    Please Matibenga if it is a joke, it is not funny anymore.Even a person coming out from the grave will not have such a crazy and stupid prediction.We know that politicians are mostly liars but this is beyond lying,it is madness of the highest order.

  6. jesu huyai wanhu waya watanga kunyepa

  7. Will or might? Reporters please do not play with our minds.

  8. Dzimwe mbanje people, smoke a little less.. She barely has provincial structures, they have not even started campaigning, is this electoral win going to come without the work being put into it. Elections unfortunately will not be a popularty contest, because that she might win in the order stated but this is not that, this is the ability of the party in power to drive economic change and her party does not have that power.

  9. Yaaah thus true that woman will nvr rule this country pamberi naED n change our economy

  10. We don’t want biased or false predictions;she might win the elections as claimed;no one no knows for sure;like Clinton in America who won popular vote & failed to garner the presidency only due their electoral laws,which is different in Zimbabwe;she might surprisingly have woman electorate appeal,who are the majority in zimbabwe
