Winter’s gone, Tsvangirai

I AM glad I did not hold my breath when MDC president Morgan Tsvangirai promised “a winter of discontent” way back in March.


After pledging to lead from the front in demonstrations and a series of nationwide rallies to “consult t

he grassroots”, nothing has been forthcoming besides the end of winter.


While I appreciate the consequences of mass demonstrations in Zimbabwe, Tsvangirai must desist from acting the macho-man as his hot-air rhetoric gives people high expectations. Moreover, Tsvangirai has put his credibility and integrity on the line.


Did he possibly mean winter in the coming year? I wonder!
