May 7, Map of Zimbabwe. They gave him no reason for the seizure.
Let me start with Mr Nyathi, when you were the spokesperson of the original MDC, that is, before the split, you talked a lot about the brutality that was being inflicted on the MDC members. But I can also say there have been some major changes in the manner our country conducts itself, in comparison to what it was say a year or two ago.
Right and Dr Madhuku, in your view has there been significant achievements towards a democratic Zimbabwe? To a large extent we think that we can celebrate as Zimbabweans so I think that the mere fact that somewhat we have less violence now, we have recognition that Zimbabweans must continue to exist side by side regardless of political differences, even with the difficulties that we see some people in ZANU failing to appreciate that all of us are Zimbabweans, but there have been some achievements.
What about the negotiations between the political parties in the inclusive government? What are your views on the deadlock? These discussions that have been purportedly taking place among the three political parties in government I think that they have been a conspiracy by the politicians just to keep everyone in the country in suspense.
I must be very clear those negotiations are really a fraud actually, politically. As soon as the political parties entered into government on 11 February I think it was really misleading the nation to say that these political parties still have fundamental differences that require them to get into those lengthy and again secretive talks requiring SADC to intervene and so on.
We have gone through now almost close to one and a half years now from the time that this government was established in February last year. The big issues were clearly — are you going to work together, are you going to be in one government, Mugabe President, Tsvangirai Prime Minister, that was resolved and agreed.
Then after that, to then start saying that there are so many outstanding issues, we will talk and so on and at some point the MDC led by Morgan Tsvangirai threatened to walk out of the government — for a few weeks, then they were back in and so forth, that has always been silly.
So no-one should focus on the so-called outstanding issues, no-one should focus on the so-called talks, what we have in the country now is an inclusive government. And so this is a trick between the two parties to keep their constituencies in check.
I think the word deadlock is a word of the English language. He reports to the government with Tsvangirai, Mugabe and Biti. Finance Minister Tendai Biti and Gideon Gono have so many meetings together, they are working in the same government. Tomana sits in the same Cabinet with those guys from the MDC and so forth and these things are happening every week.
The MDC itself does accept from time to time decisions made by the Attorney General and so on and that is not a deadlock. If you were to put it that way, I think you should use another word.
That is how I see it.
There are other struggles in the country which would want to make this country more open but the struggle led by the MDC was nothing but a struggle to take power from Mugabe and every MDC supporter is all about that.
Now to turn around and then say well Mugabe is now the President of the country and he can sit side by side with Tsvangirai and Tsvangirai accepting that there is President Mugabe and that is how things must go for the next four, five years is not something that will be quickly accepted by those who in the past ten years thought that the purpose of Tsvangirai is to replace Mugabe.
A Tsvangirai working with Mugabe is not the Tsvangirai that was supported by the people in the past ten years. Dr Madhuku says the struggle was to take power from Mugabe and it just appears that Morgan Tsvangirai is just working under the leadership of Mugabe and he also says the negotiations that are currently underway are just a fraud.
What are your thoughts on this? I do agree with Lovemore, for instance, that the outcome of the struggle that led to the GPA or the inauguration, or the installation of the all inclusive government was not what the MDC and its supporters had struggled for.

They had struggled obviously for total victory and for power in its totality. That did not happen. We ended up with this kind of inclusive arrangement where on a daily basis, the three principals as they are called, are engaged in negotiations on a day-to-day basis and unfortunately those negotiations do not always yield in the eyes of ordinary Zimbabweans or in the expectations of ordinary Zimbabweans what they had struggled for.
Obviously they had not struggled for a GPA, they had not struggled for a unity government.Nov 23, · Themba Nyathi the dancing house Gospel artists he is ready to pop out to Giyani(Xikukwana) Swakwe & Edibini Annual Festival.
