Despite his ninth hour revelations about the intrigues, plots and exposure of the ruling ZANU PF party, veteran Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe and his ruling ZANU PF party still won a big enough lanslide and is in a position to change the constitution.
Baba Jukwa’s facebook revelations were just not good enough to unseat the ruling party and like the deflated opposition and millions of Zimbabweans, Baba Jukwa is changing tactics now.
He is now advocating a Ukrainian style Orange revolution as the only way to topple 89 year old Mugabe, in power for the last 33 years and now officially Africa’s oldest president.
In a Thursday August 8th 2013 posting Jukwa notes;
Here is the perfect link which gives you key strategies which were perfectly used to unseat a dictator: If careful considered the strategies can change our country forever for better
It is a step by step guide about the 2004 orange revolution in the Ukraine. Following a similar presidential elections that was characterized by massive fraud and voter intimidation, Ukrainians demonstrated under the bitter cold for 17 days and fresh elections were called. Viktor Yanukovich who stole the earlier elections lost to opposition candidate Viktor Yushchenko in the new elections.
In Zimbabwe, Morgan Tsangirai is challenging results of the elections but there is is next to zero chance this will amount to anything since the courts are packed with Mugabe supporters.
Mubage might be 89 years old with rumours he is ill but he did not exactly lookill during the elections. He carried out a more robust elections campaign than the much younger Tsvangarai who lead a lacklustre elections campaign.
Baba Jukwa now believes the only way out of the stalemate in Zimbabwe is through a popular Ukrainian style popular revolution.
Most Zimbaweans however are not as technology savvy as those who led the Ukrainian revolution.
Secondly, the daily grind of just surviving and looking for the next meal might prove a stumbling block.
Except nature intervenes, Mugabe might just be around for the next five years.
Like most African power hungry dictators, Mugabe is not grooming a successor so if anything happens to him unexpectedly, Zimbabwe might be plunged into a Somalia style crisis which will not help anybody.
