Political scientist, Professor Jonathan Moyo says a critical assessment of the current political situation has shown that the drafting of a new constitution has become a dead donkey which calls for Zimbabweans to start preparing to hold general elections this year under the Lancaster House Constitution.
Presenting a public lecture on the political situation in the country at the Joint Command Staff Course Number 25 held in the capital, Professor Jonathan Moyo told delegates drawn from 13 African countries that a geo-political survey of Zimbabwe showed that 2012 provides an inevitable platform for the country to have its plebiscite.
Professor Moyo, who dismissed the so called contentious issues and reforms as fallacy, said the prevailing political stability being experienced even after the GPA had outlived its lifespan is a true indicator that Zimbabwe should move to the next logical step which is the holding of elections.
Turning to the drafting of the new constitution, Professor Moyo took a swipe at the three drafters whom he accused of subverting the views of the people and rendering the whole process dead.
The remarks by Professor Moyo for Zimbabwe to go for elections comes at the same time Zambian President, Michael Sata has made interesting revelations that Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai is a stooge of the West who has no power to stop President Robert Mugabe from calling for general elections in Zimbabwe.
