THIS is an open letter to presidential aspirant and former Finance minister, Simba Makoni.
I should rather begin by thanking you for running to be president of the Republic of Zimbabwe. We welcome you to the fierce world of opposition politics. The honeymoon with the barbaric Zanu PF regime is over and because of you, Robert Mugabe is panicking.
It is however saddening that your decision to participate comes at a time when the nation seems to be divided between Robert Mugabe and Morgan Tsvangirai. Personally, I sympathise with you and Dumiso Dabengwa for nothing positive will be coming your way come March 29.
It is a pity, dear brother Makoni, that a larger section of the public has even gone to the extent of labelling you a Zanu PF instrument in these underground succession battles. We cannot defend you Makoni. How can we defend a shameless politician who for the past difficult years was part and parcel of barbarians, a politician who saluted an autocrat, a despot and downright totalitarian. We Zimbabweans, do not need a rocket scientist to tell us that you and Mugabe are drinking from the same well.
Stop toying around with the electorate. We will never forget the suffering that we went through during your tenure as Finance minister.
If you think Zimbabweans are so cheap, these polls will tell you a completely different story.
