There has been a lot of speculation on the proper position of President Morgan Tsvangirai regarding the entrance of former Vice President Joice Mujuru into the political fray as a fellow opposition leader.

Firstly, President Tsvangirai’s position regarding the whole issue is that the bold step taken by Amai Mujuru to finally and completely break ranks with Zanu PF confirms the inevitable demise of Zanu PF.

We are heartened by her realisation that the opposition has been right all along that the crisis in the country has been about leadership, corruption and a bad governance culture by those in the stewardship of the State.

We feel vindicated by her acknowledgement of the imperative for a new direction for the country. For us, the fact that liberation struggle icons have joined the opposition in articulating what Zimbabweans have been hoping for all these years is indeed a breath of fresh air.

 With the majority of Zimbabweans gearing for a new beginning, this week’s developments confirm that there is hope indeed for the future.
