Ncube's sins are only two, the first one is for advocating and taking a principled stand on devolution of power as a leader of his party; and his second sin is to send a chilling message down the spines of the so called principals that he would not allow any re-negotiations for the final draft constitution.
This serves to enlighten those who have been looking down upon Prof Ncube as a political light weight. It has become abundantly clear that Ncube carries unbelievable political weight, in actual fact he is the best political leader in Zimbabwe right now. Why does Moyo fear Ncube so much? I will tackle this question, but before that I want to make it crystal clear that Moyo's acerbic piece is an invitation to Tswangirayi. We all know that Tswangirayi and Robert Mugabe have agreed to renegotiate, Tswangirayi and his party all of a suddenly changed their mind after Ncube made it clear that that such moves will not be tolerated. Tswangirayi in fear of discrediting himself and his party in the eyes of SADC and the international community quickly summersaulted as his norm.
We all know, that this final draft constitution will be renegotiated regardless of Ncube's contestations, Tswangirayi and Mugabe will attempt to renegotiate behind Ncube's back, they have always wanted to side-line him. Ncube will panic and join them in renegotiating the final draft constitution. This will, however, be the undoing of Welshman Ncube. One may wonder what may happen if Ncube does not participate? The answer is complex, there are many scenarios, the most obvious and credible one is that SADC will not endorse the constitution crafted under such conditions and will not allow any holding of elections under such a constitution or the old one.
Therefore, if Ncube plays his cards well, he will emerge a stronger and credible political figure and if Tswangirayi and Mugabe go ahead without him, they will surely be shooting themselves on the foot.
Now let me revert back to my rhetoric question, why does Moyo fear Ncube so much? Ncube has grown in stature, his political party has grown in numbers, when MDCT split from Ncube's MDC to form their splinter or faction called MDCT, they gave Ncube's authentic and original MDC five months to live, not beyond that. This was not only MDCT's view, but many other Zimbabweans including ZANU PF and Jonathan Moyo. Now that Ncube has proven his political sophistication and mantle, Jonathan Moyo and ZANU PF are panicking.
Jonathan Moyo is clearly trying to discredit Prof Ncube, or to do what is widely known as a pre-emptive strike. Ncube has gained credibility in SDAC and AU, so anything or any agreement without his involvement will be null and void, not voidable but completely void.
