“Indecisive And Unfocused” Zim Opposition Cannot Win Power: Mliswa

Temba Mliswa


Independent MP, Temba Mliswa (Norton), has challenged the opposition to be consistent and show decisive leadership if it truly habours ambitions of forming the next government.

Mliswa said the opposition has over the years changed its position on important issues that affect the nation such as land reform, sanctions, and power-sharing. He said:

The opposition is failing to be a veritable alternative as it continues dithering over issues exhibiting a lack of consistency and focus.

One day they stand for one thing and the next they are lamenting or denying alignment with the same. How can they get into power?

On Land Reform, they refused to participate saying it’s a [ZANU PF] thing. They attacked us for getting land.

Today they are struggling and trying to find land for agricultural business. Have they changed their position or what? Now they say it was good!

They said Mugabe was illegitimate and yet still went into a GNU with him as the head. The same with ED. They walked out and protested accusing him of being illegitimate.

Yet today they are accepting the benefits and perks from his tenure and leadership.

Today they say we never called for sanctions and disavow any links to them. Yet at their pronouncement they celebrated them as an international political masterstroke against the Govt.

Now they deny any links to them. Where do they stand then? Leadership requires decisiveness.
