Firebrand Independent Zambian politician Alan Morgan Sakala has sensationally said President Robert Mugabe’s Zanu PF party will lose dismally in the 2018 polls.

Sakala, a former member of the National Restoration Party of Zambia (NAREP) said the people of Zimbabwe would soon be liberated from three decades of political bondage under Mugabe’s firm grip on power.

The 92 year old President, who will be 94 in 2018, has indicated his willingness to contest in the crucial polls, despite his advanced age. Speaking at a Public Forum, organised by the Barbara Nyagomo led Progressive Democrats of Zimbabwe (PDZ) last night, Sakala said Mugabe had outlived his mandate and he had nothing new to offer to the restive and long suffering Zimbabweans.

“The people of Zimbabwe have to maintain their focus because I know the conditions are very tough. Everything has been criminalised in Zimbabwe. Things are a bit different in Zambia. What I know is the people of Zimbabwe are in bondage but let me reiterate the fact that Mugabe will fall even before 2018.

The economy is crumbling with each passing day so his government is doomed, “said Sakala. He said Zimbabwean opposition parties must focus on grassroots mobilization. “I believe opposition parties must concentrate on grassroots mobilisation. I am happy I have been invited to the Progressive Democrats of Zimbabwe forum. My advice to them and all opposition parties is that in Africa elections cannot be won on social media.

There is need to put roots on the ground in order to defeat Zanu PF.As a politician, I believe in honesty, commitment ,responsibility, humility, heart for the people, issue based politics and sense of community belonging, “said Sakala.

Ironically thousands of people were bussed from different parts of the country for the Mugabe solidarity march. School pupils were reportedly force marched to the event in a bid to portray Mugabe as an icon of Zimbabwe and Africa. Speaking during the discussion, Nyagomo said the One Million March was an insult to the people of Zimbabwe, currently grappling with socio-economic woes.

“The sad part is that only a week after the march, teachers are already struggling to withdraw their salaries from the banks. This is explicit evidence of a failed government system. We cannot continue like this anymore, “said Nyagomo.
