Call A Spade A Spade

YOUR Candid Comment (Zimbabwe Independent August 8-15) headlined “Dialogue with Magaisa over dialogue” refers.


I used to suspect that you are biased against the MDC-T and its leader Morgan Tsvangirai. I have been following your articles since the MDC split in 2005 when you appeared to favour the other MDC faction.

However, recently, I have witnessed a significant difference in your work, particularly last week’s article. This leads me to think that I was either wrong in my interpretation, or that Joram Nyathi has improved as a writer.

Anyway, my point is; your interpretation of the current political developments and criticism of Tsvangirai was very justified and based on fact.

You demonstrated that you do not fear and favour anyone by critically highlighting his shortcomings leading to our present situation as well as their strategic blunders in the current Sadc-brokered dialogue.

It is increasingly looking like there is indeed “lack of leadership in Zimbabwe”, borrowing from former SA President, Nelson Mandela.

Keep that up and let us call a spade a spade because politicians can never be trusted!
