ED stands no chance against Chamisa

THE coming presidential poll will be exciting as for the first time, Zimbabwe will have its youngest presidential candidate in 40-year-old Nelson Chamisa, who replaced the late iconic Morgan Tsvangirai as leader of both the MDC-T and MDC Alliance.

By Pardon Maguta,Our Reader

Zanu PF will, for the first time in nearly 40 years, not field “fired” Robert Mugabe, but 75-year-old Emmerson Mnangagwa as its presidential candidate.

It is the age gap or difference between the main contenders Chamisa of MDC Alliance and Mnangagwa of Zanu PF and their public speaking skills apart from party policies and manifestos, that will determine who will emerge victorious after the much-awaited 2018 polls.

Chamisa is charismatic, eloquent, young and elegant. The young and not-so-young prospective voters are already attracted to Chamisa.

The young cannot trust their future and destiny into the hands of a 75-year-old man at the expense of one of their own generation.

Chamisa will get a bumper harvest of votes. Mugabe consistently failed them and trying their luck with new blood in the form of Chamisa is the last and final solution.

Chamisa has also found favour and support in traditional leaders and war veterans, who view him as a visionary leader who can do something to change their lives for the better after years of Mugabe’s empty promises and lies, which they fear Mnangagwa may perpetuate.

While Mnangagwa enjoys the benefits of political incumbency as Head of State and government, unwavering support from benefiaries of the fast-track land reform, regional and international recognition, the odds are heavily stacked against him, as the remnants of the G40 are doing all they can to scuttle his chances of winning his first presidential race.

By calling him unelectable and a coup leader, they are making his political life difficult.

The middle class, workers, civil servants, unemployed and business community are all itching for change and that can come from Chamisa and the MDC Alliance only.

The political pendulum is tilted in favour of youthful Chamisa. Mnangagwa will be eclipsed come election day. Chamisa will romp to victory. There will be no need for a run-off vote.

  1. Social media can create fire and extinguish it. Zimbabwe politics can be played by this kind of reporting. Maybe your sales are getting down.

    1. Didingwe rinofara richa kweva rimwe asi kana rave iro roti mavara angu azare ivhu! Vanhu veZANU mukutsvagei kuno? Endai munobika doro kuHerald House yamakapamba, muti mudzimu wakurashai! Chamisa uyu anoyera! Achatonga, agotonga, achingotonga, vanowukura vachingowukura! The tables have turned guys! Endai munonwa masese kundhare nevamwe kumusha.

      1. haha you cry for freedom of association so why can Zanu pf supporters not be entitled to comment on any platform? remember Harare is not Zimbabwe.

  2. who is that f00l in zim who would look at one’s age, face, looks etc and conclude so and so is the right candidate to vote for. mashaya nyaya here?
    am sure there are certain better ways for the electorate to judge the would be president.

    1. Did you tune in to the parliamentary proceedings yaWadyajena here. Madhara ekuArdha vane huori vanga vachichemedzwa nevapfanha. Ndo paunoona kuti age matters. We the young do not tolerate nonsense nevanghu vanoziva kuti maroad akuda kugadzirwa kana vakuda kuvhoterwa. Usacheuke Chamisa bhora mberi. Nyika tatora.

  3. Chamisa the way to go. ED haamire apo unless they do another coup

    1. Zviroto zviroto hazvirambidzwe. Chamisa achaita president weNewsday

  4. If the electoral process meets the reform recommendations that the MDC T called for are not realised, then the military junta will remain in power. They have been quite clear that they have restored the “legacy”. The word “Legacy” is code for Zanu pf, the “revolutionary” party must rule for ever amen. It is a private club for the bandits who took the reins of power in April 1980 and decided they will be the ones to rape, pillage and capture the state for their own selfish benefit.

  5. If you zimbabwean people don’t want that country to be a junk state, a country without recognition, a country in mucky waters,then keep on supporting evil doers-ZANU PF. People with scoop and hearts don’t want to keep on suffering because of zanu pf’s failures, instead let us flash out these useless bastards and zanu pf people will never ever develop zimbabwe come what may i bit you. What changes would people expect from zanu pf after 38 years of ruining zimbabwe? Why did they failed us in the first place and what would made them to change their failed policies so suddenly? Zanu pf communism and capitalist policies will not change forever.LET US BE UNITED AND GET RID OF ZANU PF PLEASE.

    1. harahwa iyoyo dambudzo akaunza matambudziko na mugabe mowadiii. They failed for the past 37 years and what can they change in 5 years.

  6. tendai chaminuka

    ZANU(P.F) is the way to go especially with this nonsense in Movement for Demonic Chamy.#EDHASMYVOTE.

  7. Your head line is full of shit….

  8. Chamisa may be eloquent and young , yes , but that does not make him a good Presidential candidate but he is a good politician . To say he will win Presdential elections this year basing on the huge numbers of funeral attendees is very unfortunate . ZANU has also equal number of youths dotted round the country . Time will tell .

  9. chihombe madhara

    Ngwena zvokwadi hamuizive,you think akabvutira mugabe nyika kuti ape chamisa,misoro mizhinji muZimbabwe yakazara mvura.

  10. Gukurume ReMasvingo

    Sandy changing of ruling parties does not mean failure. USA, UK, Germany if not the world over – leaders from different parties change. The way you have advanced your argument is a bit shallow.

  11. There is no vision in Chamisa save for the fact that he wants to steal from the National purse. He doesn’t even own a tuckshop so how will he be able to run a whole country? Munopenga endai munobika doro.

    1. ko mugabe zvaakatonga muna 1980 aınge aıneı. ko Lacoste wenyu uyu (mushorı-lızard) aneı except lootıngs from home and abroad (drc)

    2. you are razy boy. do u think for one to be a leader must have big stolen assets.you need to introspect your zanuism spirit b4 you are shocked in the coming days. God is the one who allow anyone to rule and does not take into consideration your stupid criteria when choosing leaders. ndimi mapenzi aita kuti titambure kudai

  12. is this newsday or an mdc publication???????????? it seems like you hev started campaigning for chamisa. from the way you reported about the zanu pf factional fights it seems as if you are always off the mark

    1. Be careful when you just say so or so shall win,what have you used to come up with results.No real facts to support your thinking, its not a ‘beauty’ contest but an election.

  13. Gukurume ReMasvivngo, you really don’t know the inside outside world.In your reference to UK,USA,Germany,these developed countries always changes governing parties and government so as to boost investor confidence and that of the indeginous people.They don’t stick with your poor and shallow African one party system without development. Zimbabwe as you Gukurume and your useless minded zanus keep on crying over and over for your zanu pf’s persistence staying in power,what kind of tomorrow are you expecting to have when ZANU PF’S 38 years of ruling were of killing,suffocating the masses and of destroying? ED was with Mugabe and is still zanu pf what changes would you expect from this party when the same system is still being used today?Those few zanu pf gangsters and supporters who are enjoying life today,is that joy for every zimbabwean?

  14. Wishful thinking on the part of the aptly named Pardon with plenty of unsubstantiated unprovable claims.
    Chipanga is a youth who thought he had captured the world but, Alas! That turned out to be hallucinations only.
    The greatest undoing of all youths is naivety and gullibility to populism a lot of it induced by many purposefully out to mislead the stupor of the youth in question. Immature Chamisa is no different.

    1. chipanga aita sei?vanhu vakaita kuti ED adzingwe at first ndivo vamwechete vakafara paakagadzwa.vanhu vezanu muri rwaivhi chairo u always sing for your sadza. ipapa Ed akatsemurwa na Chamisa tokuonaimoti sikasika naye. Tarisai Chinotimba, pese paive naMugabe iye waivepo achiita sembwa ina tenzi vayo.apo ndiye mumwechete otuka mugabe nekuti haachatonga. u are fucked up

  15. ED HAS MY VOTE

  16. Another fool is saying that zpf cde should not read newsday.You can see that he doesn’t think well. THAT’S why vari kutuka mai vaPresident way.

  17. CHAMISA IS THE MAN , not these 37 years failures

  18. i wonder if he can stand a live debate with Chamisa and survive ED has nothing to offer to zim he does not share the aspirations of the youth . to show that he is a man of violence anofunga zvekungo rakasha vanhu chete. no wonder he sent his youths kurakasha pa social media they dont even have facts to support the clueless ED who has only managed to give hollow promises to the youth and civil servants . ED can not separate humself from Mugabe vaiva vese vachiponda nyika ne chibhake che zanu .
    1.DRC costed us
    2.unplannned land reform
    3.indiginisation policy

  19. Chamisa began to lie before he has not even entered into office!First he lied that the USA had promised him 15 billion to kick-start the economy;which immediately turned out to a big lie,when the USA ambassador refuted it;he continues to lie that he will introduce bullet trains within his two terms in office-which is highly unlikely considering the status of the present zim economy-only lying for winning elections;sensible don’t vote for age but rather experience,since age brings nothing but rather a lot of flip-flopping;but experience might b wisdom bec of past mistakes.Inexperience might lead to a lot of misadventures which might later prove costly to the nation

    1. Tozokutsvakai tigokushayayi madyiwa na Charms.Remember yesterday you were making a lot of noise muchiti vanhu kuna Amai Mugabe but today moita kunge musina kugara mavaziva.Ngwena yenyu munoiramba mangwana zvakanaka trust me.

  21. Ed haana dhiri. Even if he wins against mpfana chamisa but factionalism btwn Zanu-PF politicians against military will destroy ED.
