The two presidential aspirants are not leaving anything to chance. Two weeks ago they went all out making huge donations to the Women’s League, trying to one-up each other. As Mujuru and Mnangagwa tried to upstage one another, in the background members of the Zanu (PF) women’s league were being kidnapped ahead of the elective congress. After Mujuru’s reputation took a battering – Oppah’s ‘husband burner jibe’ and Mutsvanga’s fake helicopter shooting allegations – Mnangangwa will be thinking that he should consolidate his position, even if it means putting on an Oscar Award winning act of compassion.
But will Zimbabwe forget about 20,000 lives that were snuffed out without compunction?
