Zimbabweans should learn from Sudan’s current revolution as Zimbabwe Electoral Commission and Zanu PF will never reform, Free Zimbabwe leader Jacob Ngarivhume has said.
In a press statement, Ngarivhume said the Sudanese have learnt from five coups and are now demanding for a civilian government.” The 1989 Sudanese coup d’état was a military coup that occurred in Sudan on the 30th of June 1989. The coup was led by Col. Omar al-Bashir against the government of Prime Minister Sadiq al-Mahdi. The current coup taking place is coup number 6 and the first coup was 50 years ago.
“The Sudanese people are now demanding a civilian transitional authority because they have learnt from the last 5 coups that the Military Is not meant for governance. I hope it doesn’t take Zimbabwe 50 years. Zimbabwe badly needs a Civilian Transition authority without political leaders,” he said.
Ngarivhume said the country had a deficit of honest driven political leaders.
“Zimbabwe has a deficit of people who are honest driven political leaders. It appears people are willing to do and say anything for political positions and such people can never be trusted with the nation.
“It is also important to come to terms with the fact that Freedom for our nation will never come through the ballot box. For freedom to come through the ballot we would need reforms in the electoral system. i can confidently say that ZEC is a ZANU PF entity and it will never reform voluntarily,” Ngarivhume said.
He said the opposition does not have the numbers to push through reforms in parliament.
“Reforms also have to be pushed through in PARLIAMENT and OPPOSITION does NOT have the numbers to push such reforms and as long as opposition continues to field double candidates and self sabotage there will never be enough numbers to push for reforms in Parly and this reality faced by all instead of lying to ourselves about a Victory in 2023,” he said.
Ngarivhume said Zimbabweans must unite as the ruling party will never reform.
“Sometimes facing our reality instead of entertaining unrealistic notions is important. facts to face when it comes to ZANU PF. ZANU PF will never change, ZANU PF will never Reform, ZANU PF will always promise you the moon and the stars but you never get anything and if ZANU PF gives you something there is a price tag on it and they will collect.
“Zimbabweans need to understand that we are in this together, Black, White Asian, Shona or Ndebele we must be UNITED.”
ZANU PF capitalizes on human greed to divide us.
“ZANU PF will never relinquish power through the ballot. ZANU PF Is already planning how they will rig the next election. They are ten steps ahead as ZANU PFs Primary business is the business of staying in POWER. Somewhere in the ZEC Office the Presidential results for 2023 are already being plotted.
“The toughest reality we must face is that it will probably take a people driven revolution to remove ZANU PF. meaning we the people will have to take the lead in getting our lives and the future of our children back from the grip of ZANU PF.
“When a politician or Political party says they will win in 2023 be good to yourselves Zimbabweans and ask them, “What reforms have they pushed or currently pushing that will ensure the elections are free and fair and that ZEC will announce opposition as the winner?” if the answer is in the negative, then the chances of winning are next to none,” he said
