IBBO MANDAZA PDF

Share via Email The England team have been warned by the International Cricket Council that they will be punished if they fail to play against Zimbabwe in Harare and Bulawayo next month. This meddling by Straw, who has been at the centre of British efforts to isolate Zimbabwe, is just the latest episode in the stand-off between the two countries. Britain, which leads the international campaign against Mugabe, charges that the land reform programme has been implemented through violence, outside the rule of law and that white farmers mostly former British settlers should have been compensated for their loss. The British government, however, refused to provide such compensation, even though Straw himself has admitted that British imperialism created the land problem not only in Zimbabwe , but also in Palestine, Pakistan and India.

The first issue in this analysis concerns the dynamics of the Zimbabwean state, particularly the central role of the securocrats specifically, the leadership of the armed forces, intelligence, police and prisons, as the former commanders of the armies of liberation, mainly ZANLA and, to a lesser extent, also ZIPRA ; their attitude towards the MDC within the inclusive government, and, indeed, how they hope to reproduce themselves in and beyond.

The securocrat state has emerged pari passu the decline of ZANU PF from onwards; against the background of the threatening storm of the opposition MDC; and rendering the securocrats essentially indispensable to the survival of the state itself and whatever has remained of the party of liberation. In the final analysis, ZANU PF as a Party survives tenuously on the securocrat state without which it would have withered away into oblivion, bereft of material resources, and hence organisationally and ideologically vacuous.

These are the events leading up to the formation of the MDC in and the subsequent rejection of the draft constitution in the referendum of February So, the onerous task of trying to sustain the Party of old is left to those who have so much to lose in a State which has survived so far on the twin pillars of violence or the threat of it and patronage.

Securocracy describes the unique way in which the former guerrilla leaders have, in the name of ZANU PF, established their hegemony over the Zimbabwe State and appear intent on doing so sine die. Therefore, now to the second feature that remains also central to the Zimbabwean political kaleidoscope: the MDC.

Its protogonists and many an observer alike, would argue that the MDC won all the four elections of , , and , but were denied victory by the securocrat state. Yet all this is now academic since, if true, it is a modern-day testimony that electoral victory is never a guarantee for assumption of state power. In the meantime, the MDC has lost its leverage as the opposition party that it ought to be, largely compromised by being simultaneously an inadvertent and marginal participant in a state within which it is also competing for space with ZANU PF.

The MDC is no doubt an organisation in crisis, even if this is largely an outcome of forces beyond its own control. Certainly, the MDC has lost most of its gloss ever since the inception of the inclusive government, but this does not necessarily translate into a mass migration of support from Morgan Tsvangirai to Robert Mugabe.

Lastly, the external factor and how the regional, continental and global influences are likely to impact on political developments in Zimbabwe this year. If anything has demonstrated the inherent impotence of SADC and the African Union is contemporary African politics, it is the Zimbabwe question over the period since the flawed electoral process of March The regional and continental integration enterprise has all but ground to a halt. These are the same considerations that are applicable to South Africa and its role of would-be arbitrator in the Zimbabwe crisis; the problems confronting it domestically are potentially bigger than those Zimbabwe has had to deal with during its post-independence history.

To state the least, South Africa has never had the capacity to resolve the Zimbabwe problem; besides, the Zimbabwean state and its current actors are far too more astute than their southern counterparts about whom they are more often than not disdainful and even dismissive.

At best, expediency is what characterises the relationship between two states. Needless to add, this is a goal towards which, notwithstanding the anti-imperialist rhetoric all around us, the Zimbabwean State is intuitively geared — politically, ideologically and economically.

There are more than rumours about exploratory contacts between Harare and Whitehall; and many a member of the European Union can hardly wait for normalisation of relations with a Zimbabwe whose economic potential is so enormous. Therefore, a rational and objective analysis of the national security priorities, not to mention both the peace and economic recovery imperatives, would all feed the argument against a hurried election in But over the last week alone, President Mugabe has been wanting elections and not wanting them!

The point is that there is no need to rush to elections until the GPA process has run its course, away from the conditions which necessitated the inclusive government, towards a stage in which Zimbabweans will have crafted a new Constitution, mended the economy and established congenial social and political conditions for free, fair and credible elections.
