Zimbabwe witnessed a resurgence of politically motivated violence and intimidation after Zanu PF launched its 2011 election campaign across the country code-named “Operation Ngatizivanei”, an operation that requires all eligible voters to be recorded in a Zanu Pf membership register, – the only way they can steal our votes, monitor and follow-up on its members.
During the 2008 elections, no candidate received an outright majority in the first round according to media reports, a second round was held on 27 June 2008 between Tsvangirai and Mugabe but Tsvangirai withdrew from the second round a week before it was scheduled to take place citing violence against his party’s supporters. The second round went ahead despite widespread condemnation and led to a victory for Mugabe, the results of which were hugely disputed all around the world except by the Zanu Pf stalwarts.
Mugabe and his Zanu Pf party have lost sight of what is important – the will of the people. The freedom and democracy that the Zimbabwean people fought for in the liberation war is now a distant memory as we are now being held as prisoners by the very men that led us to victory.
Mr Mugabe, please give us the chance to see a New Zimbabwe and a New Beginning, we want to be the envy of all the African countries that we were, once upon a time.
