AMHVoices: Chamisa must know AU is ‘toothless’

THE Constitutional Court (ConCourt) returned its verdict on the contentious July 30 Zimbabwe presidential election.

By Kanji Masunda,Our Reader

Under normal circumstances, the findings and ruling in favour of a President Emmerson Mnangagwa victory by the ConCourt would have settled the matter once and for all.

But presidential hopeful and MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa still feels hard put, prompting the question: What’s next?

Chamisa, in a post-ConCourt ruling Press conference ruling promised to rollout protests in protection of what he calls a people’s vote.

Chamisa still claims that he garnered in excess of 2,6 million votes against Mnangagwa’s slightly over two million votes.

On his part, Mnangagwa at his inauguration on Sunday at the giant National Sports Stadium in Harare, attended by several dignitaries, intimated that he had won square and fair.

He also appeared magnanimous, inviting Chamisa and other losing July 30 presidential hopefuls to join him as he embarks on a national rebuilding trajectory of a country that has gone through decades of retrogression.

But Zimbabwe is not alien to ugly and ruinous political contestation, both which have dealt the ordinary citizens a cruel and knock punch. And now this lingering issue of legitimacy …

One hopes that the African Commission for Human and People’s Rights (ACHPR) Chamisa has approached possesses the capacity to bring a lasting solution to Zimbabwe’s drawn out political problems.

It is said that Chamisa has all the evidence he requires, including all the V11 forms which his lawyers didn’t produce at the ConCourt last week to bolster his application, to have the ACPHR reverse Mnangagwa’s victory and probably have himself declared President.

But the big question is whether his application will be admissible? Will Chamisa not be accused of approaching the commission with dirty hands, after having failed to produce the evidence at the ConCourt last week?

Another problem will be the capacity, in the absence of an African Union standing army, to implement a Chamisa verdict to the presidency, if it pans out that.

Previously, the ACHPR has been described as a toothless bulldog, all barking and no bite.

Zimbabwe’s plethora of problems, including the matter of legitimacy, in the view of many analysts, can only yield to internal dialogue, spearheaded by the international community.

All other paths, including restrictive measures on the country, have only led to a dead end in the past.

    1. Where did u goto school???? 14.5 is the population of Zimbabwe and it does not mean they are all legible to vote. registered voters in zim are 5 million so to answer ur qstn: 2.6 million is half of the registered voters. Hamugone maths ndosaka muchingosweroropodza zvnhu zvri pachena izvi. Iwe ndiwe lunatic, hauziye zvaunotaura …nxaa

  2. Chamisa must resign from politics. He is a greedy young man

    1. Greediness is taking wat’s not urs. Chamisa akatora chii chaani. Ndiye akatobirwa nevanhu vari greedy yet u want to turn it on him

      1. but failed to present the V11 forms for his victory.

        1. they refused to accept zec server in the court thus why Chamis camp resorted to nully the results.

    2. greedy how? do u know wat u r saying? he was robbed but u busy saying hes greedy, its funny

    3. unopenga

  3. Chamisa could be exposing wrong weaknesses. lets see how his battle will end.

  4. Petros Magomazi

    So now he has v11 forms, all of them!!! That is very funny. If he has them why then did he not produce them during the concourt hearing?

  5. shunguhadziurayi mangarayi

    Why is chamisa saying he has the v11 forms and that he won by 2.6m votes? Where is he getting that figure? Simple, Chamisa rigged the election after calculating the number of registered voters. Chamisa started claiming that he has won the election well before counting resulting in people losing lives. Why was he so confident despite the fact that his rallies were not even near match to ED’s? He rigged to reach the 2.6m but unfortunately God will never put a liar in position of authority he lost. So he is failing to understand how after such rigging he went on to loose. But I want to warn chamisa that very soon he will kiss bye bye to politics through rejection by the very people who supported him. The truth is all what chamisa is looking for is creating a situation which will make investors loose confidence in our country so that no employment, no growth of economy and sanction are further tightened to make people suffer and he will as usual do his you tube press conferences giving the blame to ZANU PF and its leader. Because of the suffering people will be driven to say the government has failed and revolt. Very cheap politicking, but this shall backfire very soon.

    1. Ko iwe imbondiudzawo kuti President akahwinha wacho ane mavotes mangani? Ukapindura neexact figure we wl tok from there. Why do u say nothing in a lot of words???

    2. haa you know were socialised by ZANU PF to think about sanctions were they are irrelevant.its just propaganda being used.Im sorry if you are from rural areas

  6. Surely this is the most bizarre statement ever made by any fool; that he now has the V11 forms that his lawyers did not produce in Court. He is only trying to remain relevant and to have a reason to push for sanctions. Sadly it’s my relative and yours that suffer ED will be well looked after by our taxes. Handiti he said sadza racho ndoridira mavhu? That is exactly what he is doing. I understand him though because if he does not do this the focus would be on the Congress in his party. Get a life young man and move on. As for us we want someone who resuscitates the economy so don’t go around spoiling it for us.

  7. We need to progress. This issue of AU and political bickering is being done at our expense. Why not join hands for the betterment of those whom u want to lead? Why fight for political office at our expense?

  8. chamisa ava kumhanya muchine. kokudzikama ungaitonga ukaigona nyika yeZimbabwe iwe mufana. nemivo maMDC murikunyengera mwana. usanzwa zvako iwe chamisa zvaurikuudzwa nevamwe vako zvokuti ramba wakaoma musoro. hona vaikudaro be4 maelections vakazondoti mavoti avo pfeeeee panaED. Vazhinji vavo vato kuwanzira vachiti kachamisa kanofunga kuti kanga tonga vanMUDZURI vanhu vakuru pamakore nemuparty. uye vaiti wakabvuta masimba kuparty kwako saka hanzi regai zvidonhe. konhai Chamisa zvawaiti urishamwari yaKAGAME PAUL, Kohaunakuzo mumhoresa wani. ndazoziva why usina kuenda ku inauguration bcz waiziva kut unozononzi ndiye mufana wedzungu wekunyepa kuti urikubatsira kagame kutonga Rwanda.

  9. Feldman Bandura

    Chamisa is a political scientist and he knows that AU is toothless and corrupt. He just wants to expose the AU by drawing attention to the AU. By the way, the AU is funded by Americans and Europeans and if the funders see the AU corruption they will withdraw funding. Once the spotlight is brought to the AU democracy may come to Africa. Fight on Nelson Chamisa.

    1. AU is ‘funded by Americans and Europeans’ – where do you get that rubbish from? And even if that were the case, why does Chamisa not just take the evidence to the Americans and Europeans if he has it. Or even better, show the V11 forms to Zimbabweans in Zimbabwe – give the data to the Daily News to publish. He was offered a court room to provide evidence but provided nothing. All he presented were Kenyan experts who came to a constitutional court with fake data.

    2. Irally behind you

  10. The AU are Useless they are wanting the europeans to deal with migrants (in other words do everything) crossing the mediterranean they are just watching and doing nothing they are just empty vessels making alot of noise this Kagame guy should be the one dealing with the migrant issue uselless as ever even a child could pick it up
