Political analysts say the confessions by  Tsvangirai’s American allies that the MDC-T leader  would require massive handholding if ever he comes to power indicate that his quest for the highest post in the land – the presidency – is a fantasy.


Dr Tafataona Mahoso said that Zimbabweans should understand that when the Americans and the British and their Western allies launched the MDC, their intention was to destroy Zimbabwe and retain their interests through Prime Minister Tsvangirai.


He said while Wikileaks does not reveal anything new that Zimbabweans do not know, Mr Tsvangirai’s hands have always been held and he has always been led like a child.

“American interests will not bring democracy to Zimbabwe, but will produce a failed state. With their destructive intentions, the West did not need intelligent leaders from the MDC, what they required were destructive people. As far as MDC is concerned, their hands are being held and they are being told what to say,” Dr Mahoso said.

Another political analyst, Mr Wellington Gadzikwa, said at a time when the third world is fighting domination there is need for decisive leadership.

Countless efforts to get comment from the MDC-T were fruitless.

After promising to grant ZBC News audience, Mr Tsvangirai’s spokesperson, Luke Tamborinyoka’s phone went unanswered.

MDC-T party spokesman, Mr Nelson Chamisa’s phone also went unanswered.

The wikileaks documents show that the American government largely viewed Tsvangirai as a weak and ineffectual leader and they did not believe there were opposition politicians with leadership qualities to take over from Head of State and Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, President Robert Mugabe, who was described as a confident leader and brilliant tactician.

The description of Mr Tsvangirai as weak and infantile by former US Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Christopher Dell should be a slap in the face to the MDC-T leader, who has described the American and British as his friends. 

Analysts say the way the US described its alliance with the MDC-T leadership clearly points out that the imperialists have no friends in the MDC but uses it to further their own political interests.
