This is a crucial point in their history. They could have delayed the celebration & rallied against the idea of Mnangagwa being the President.
That guy is as much responsible & corrupt as Mugabe was. He only went against the regime when he got sacked.
He achieved the throne by throwing military power at Mugabe.
For a guy who holds military backing, How likely is it that he is going to give up the power post the election?
This was a chance for Zimbabwean civilians/leaders from other parties to demand a different personnel, rather than empowering the person who can already rally the military in mere days of his sacking.
When the obvious doesn’t hit someone in face, I don’t think its unfair to say the celebrating Zimbabweans deluded.
If I was a Zimbabwean, I wouldn’t be celebrating so soon.
