Ngeso Lo Khozi: MRP's Zimbabwe Election Aftermath Possibilities

Ngeso Lo Khozi: MRP's Zimbabwe Election Aftermath Possibilities
Published: 19 February 2017 | by Mkhululi Sibindi@Ngeso LoKhozi
A couple of weeks back Mthwakazi Republic Party announced that they will participate in 2018 elections as a regional party enhancing the restoration agenda. This has caused a lot of public criticism from both foes and friends of MRP. This debate has enraged the comments of fellow colleagues and restorationist who have nothing to do with MRP decision making.

This article attempts to understand the political landscape, electoral process that the MRP will be subjected to. In line with ethics of constructive criticism this article is presented in the faith that Mthwakazi Republic Party is public institute hence it is not beyond criticism.

It is my sincere hope that before this decision was made the executive of MRP used all possible options to consider the facts surrounding the decision to participate in the elections.

Zimbabwe has held general elections since her inception as a state in 1980. At this point we must state that one the provisions that has ensured that Mthwakazi is a colony of Mashonaland is the provision of tribal dominance which is maintained by distribution of parliamentary seats. 

In the Lancaster house provision Mthwakazi was given a quarter of parliamentary seats in comparison to Mashonaland. This has been the biggest undoing of any party with most of its support in Mthwakazi (Zapu, MDC, MDC- T the list is endless). For a fact, this will await the MRP in the coming elections. I hope the executive considered this fact.

Second, Zimbabwe elections has been a subject of international criticism, there is no doubt that the same fate await MRP. There is no doubt that results will be very compromised to the point that the restorationist agenda will be subjected to critical embarrassment. Remember how Welshman Ncube MP were treated in 2013 election to sacrifice devolution of power.

Consistent with this pattern one would assume a similar trend of the MRP. Any competent decision maker and analyst would consider that, unless if the MRP has made significant inroads into Zanu PF system that will be most welcome development.

The question that we must all ponder on is what possible scenario will the MRP in the election aftermath. They are two most possible outcomes. The first assumption, assumes that the MRP get at least one seat in the parliament of Zimbabwe. In this scenario, the MRP will make a statement and make noise on the restoration agenda this may give courage to other Matebele who are in other parties and might push the agenda. Everything is possible under the sun of earth. Adolf Hitler started a party with only six people within a short space he challenged for universal hegemony. Given the skewness of conditions this scenario is highly unlikely. But who knows at the end of the day all is good that ends well.

The second assumption is that the MRP, will not get any seat. This result will completely dress down both the MRP and restorationist agenda. This would be a setback without parallels and may mean the demise of an otherwise vibrant party which has done a lot in a short space.

While we perfectly understand that MRP has a right to make decisions as regards to the activities and strategic position of the party, we are equally aware that MRP is not immune to criticism, hence it is our fervent hope that this article is only limited to constructive criticism and will be treated as such.
