There is a lot of suppositions and speculation as to why people are supporting Simba Makoni. I think your suppositions and warnings should have rightly fit in 1999 when people started supporting MDC which at the time had no manifesto – did not know how to deal with land reform, the judiciary question, the economic question except that they were pretending to be what Zanu PF is not. Now we know what they are and what they can offer – still not sure about their land policy though except to criticize what Mugabe has done. Oh, yes, the Mutambara side has aticulated some of the policy questions we had.
On Simba Makoni, he just announced his candidature, tomorrow at 12 pm he is going to announce the programme of action – I don’t care what he offers – his entry into politics removes the stagnation we have witnessed for the past 8 years and its good for our politics. The fact that government is going all out, MDC also on the side seemingly threatened means we are going to have a good 29 March. It’s no longer going to be two hot heads who seem to be failing to agree on anything except hold us hostage to their politics – the other one refusing to leave power and the other crying that elections are rigged or busy boycotting anything or calling for sanctions on the motherland. Any Zimbabwean who is tired of the current politics has a chance to get out of his voter apathy and at least exercise his choice
