Former Mwenezi East Member of Parliament who also served as Minister of State for Masvingo Provincial Affairs, Kudakwashe Bhasikiti could best be described as a man who has seen it all in political circles.
The political nomad was fired from Zanu PF in 2014 during the ‘Gamatox purges’ before joining the opposition ZimPF which was formed by his fellow comrades dismissed from the ruling party.
When the party disintegrated, he became an independent but attempted to crawl his way back to the ruling party late last year.
Now he has joined the MDC Alliance where he has found a platform from which to attack President Emmerson Mnangagwa whom he says fares less than his predecessor Robert Mugabe in everything.
Bhasikiti described President Mnangagwa as the worst case scenario that Zanu PF has ever found itself in.
He was responding to a song which was being sung by MDC-T supporters at a rally in Bikita at Nyika growth point.
The song sought to make a point that the ‘new dispensation’ was a farce, and that Mugabe and Mnangagwa were the same.
“The song you were singing is a good one but we should not give credit where it is not due. Mugabe and Mnangagwa can never be on the same level. Mnangagwa is worse.
“At least Mugabe was a better candidate who won some votes during his term but now that he is gone, there is no one to vote for in Zanu PF leaving Chamisa with a clean sweep victory in the coming elections,” said Bhasikiti.
He said the reason why disgruntled members of the Gamatox faction and G40 were rallying behind Chamisa was because there was no one in Zanu PF worthy a ballot.politics
