Maxwell Saungweme said : “The protest was a genuine remonstration against the face of the coup regime who was gallivanting abroad, at times saying outright lies about no deaths or rights abuses in Zimbabwe. It is clear that (Itai) Dzamara has not been accounted for, more than a dozen activists have been charged with treason or subversion; people were killed on August 1 2018, and the charade of a commission set was just tomfoolery,” “In January, people were killed, maimed and raped after protests, and civic space, in general, has shrunk. The protesters did right to show Moyo and his handlers that re-engagement is premised on real change in terms of respect for human rights at home, not jet-setting and lies” External link

Maxwell Saungweme said : "The biggest thing they have to do is distinguish themselves from Zanu-PF. As they stand now; they are the same with Zanu-PF on neoliberal, pro-capital pro-profit economic ideology. They also believe in tonnes of foreign aid to address our issues. They also have bloated party structures and lack of internal democracy," "What they need to do is to show us true alternative policies and approaches as we get to 2023. They cannot make it by just whipping up national sentiment in the face of Zanu-PF economic failures without proffering truly different policy alternatives. Clear pro-poor policy propositions with a clear implementation strategy and fostering internal party democracy is what will see MDC succeed in 2023" External link

The party created a situation where anyone with some perceived powers knocks on doors and shakes down a few golden picks from a weaker person.

What these rogue party officials are doing is lower level corruption reflective of what rogue police officers are doing at a higher level and senior government officials are doing at the apex,” External link

Corruption in Zanu PF and government is so glaring and you can’t be confounded by petty corruption by rogue party supporters merely mimicking behaviours of their bosses at the top. This admission by Zanu PF is cheap political talk. Who does not know the obscene mansions built by senior Zanu PF officials? Who does not know of endless lists of properties divorce proceedings after divorce proceedings of Zanu PF senior officials reveal? What of First Family boys buying outrageously expensive vehicles? Zanu PF is a corrupt club where members out-compete each other to primitively crudely steal from the poor without conscience,” External link

Maxwell Saungweme said : “His first year in power after elections is a year of failure to deliver on electoral promises and as a president he needs to change course and change quickly,” External link

Maxwell Saungweme said : “The protest was a genuine remonstration against the face of the coup regime who was gallivanting abroad, at times saying outright lies about no deaths or rights abuses in Zimbabwe. It is clear that (Itai) Dzamara has not been accounted for, more than a dozen activists have been charged with treason or subversion; people were killed on August 1 2018, and the charade of a commission set was just tomfoolery,” “In January, people were killed, maimed and raped after protests, and civic space, in general, has shrunk. The protesters did right to show Moyo and his handlers that re-engagement is premised on real change in terms of respect for human rights at home, not jet-setting and lies” External link

theindependent Friday, July 19, 2019 8:30:00 PM EAT

Maxwell Saungweme said : "The biggest thing they have to do is distinguish themselves from Zanu-PF. As they stand now; they are the same with Zanu-PF on neoliberal, pro-capital pro-profit economic ideology. They also believe in tonnes of foreign aid to address our issues. They also have bloated party structures and lack of internal democracy," "What they need to do is to show us true alternative policies and approaches as we get to 2023. They cannot make it by just whipping up national sentiment in the face of Zanu-PF economic failures without proffering truly different policy alternatives. Clear pro-poor policy propositions with a clear implementation strategy and fostering internal party democracy is what will see MDC succeed in 2023" External link

Maxwell Saungweme said : "It shows our leaders have wrong priorities. They like grandstanding, live in opulence amidst poverty and penury, and display obscene wealth in a sea of misery. We have wring people, with wrong priorities at the top. Our politicians have very little to offer, they would rather show off, grandstand and spend on useless rallies. It's a scourge in both ruling and main opposition party," External link

Maxwell Saungweme said : "People know who has access to the type of ordnance used in the unfortunate bombing incident. By the way, our intelligence and spy agency is one of the best in the region. I am sure they know exactly who was behind this. Keeping it on wraps can only be affirmation that this was an internal job and letting the cat out of the bag is poor political strategy. Expect nothing unguarded to come out of this. At best, you might have some unfortunate paid bloke being paraded as the bomber. But the truth will unlikely surface in such delicate cases," External link

bulawayo24 Monday, November 13, 2017 6:39:00 PM EAT

Maxwell Saungweme observed : "If Tyson dares challenge Dr Amai, the charges will stick. So Zanu-PF is a moronic, baffling, and preposterous political outfit where sanity rarely reigns. To survive in such a muddled and tumultuous party-political jungle-like organisation, you have to play the game," External link

Maxwell Saungweme said : “It’s a rogue party with rogue members in a shake-shake economy. The party created a situation where anyone with some perceived powers knocks on doors and shakes down a few golden picks from a weaker person. This is happening everywhere in Zimbabwe as the nation has endemic corruption. What these rogue party officials are doing is lower level corruption reflective of what rogue police officers are doing at a higher level and senior government officials are doing at the apex,” External link

dailynews-co-zw Sunday, October 29, 2017 5:54:00 PM EAT

Maxwell Saungweme said : “If 15 billion dollars can disappear and the Head of State and president of ruling party acknowledges that but does not resign, what about junior government and party officials? Corruption in Zanu PF and government is so glaring and you can’t be confounded by petty corruption by rogue party supporters merely mimicking behaviours of their bosses at the top. This admission by Zanu PF is cheap political talk. Who does not know the obscene mansions built by senior Zanu PF officials? Who does not know of endless lists of properties divorce proceedings after divorce proceedings of Zanu PF senior officials reveal? What of First Family boys buying outrageously expensive vehicles? Zanu PF is a corrupt club where members out-compete each other to primitively crudely steal from the poor without conscience,” External link

Maxwell Saungweme said : “Instead of harnessing these low-hanging political fruits, our opposition are proving to be big-headed, green, dense and useless, hence creating many unnecessary coalitions, fighting each other yet their real adversary is Zanu PF,” “Headlines and political debate are featuring prominently Zanu PF infighting, Lacoste and G40, reshuffling of cabinet etc. Instead of the opposition capitalising on these and ensuring they deal a final blow to Zanu PF in the coming election, they are mute, on a political sabbatical and nowhere to be found. Right now they are waiting for Zanu PF to do something, for them to be reactionary” External link

theindependent Saturday, October 28, 2017 12:49:00 PM EAT

Maxwell Saungweme added : "Tsvangirai led the party for 18 years while Mugabe did for over 35. None of them groomed a successor. Both parties have very educated and experienced politicians and leaders who can run the parties well and efficiently but were sidelined by a system that makes the leader bigger than the party and everyone else.

That Mzembi failed to read clearly what that means against the track record of his principal who seeks medical help abroad shows how incompetent Mzembi is in that role,” “If it were in other countries, he would resign for miscalculation, poor judgment and humiliating his president. Mzembi is one of the zeros shuffles recently by Mugabe and this debacle is clear testament that shuffling political zeros and expect a different political permutation is political insanity,” External link

Maxwell Saungweme said ( about Grace Mugabe ) : "Unless there is a clear show of defiance against the first family by a significant number of Zanu-PF supporters, Oppah will not succeed," "She certainly has more substance and better political maturity than Grace, but winning the post would mean Zanu-PF supporters openly revolting against Mugabe and his wife. Grace's controversial PhD did not help her get a modicum of political maturity and she would not stand against a seasoned politician like Oppah if there was internal democracy in Zanu-PF," External link
