The MDC-T, through its National Youth Assembly, has unleashed terror attacks in the country targeting law enforcement agents. The terrorist arson attack on the police truck in central Harare, as well as the calculated arson attack on the police post at Market Square in Harare on August 24 2016, are testimony of the terror being visited upon the security establishment.In a well-orchestrated move, the MDC-T National Youth Assembly, led by its national chairperson Happymore Chidziva, aptly nicknamed “Cde Bvondo (Provocateur),” used an arsenal of petrol bombs, stones and iron bars which were prepared before the so-called launch of the #MyZimbabwe Campaign.
Chidziva is famed within the terror organisation that is the MDC-T for his “bvondorisation,” which loosely translated, means a very violent and provocative person.
The launch was a ruse which was intended to act as a cover for the well-planned acts of sabotage, banditry and looting. The MDC-T has attempted to “dissociate” itself from acts of violence by using a host of proxy movements as conduits to perpetrate social media terror, which came to life as real-life terror on July 1 2016, when #Tajamuka spearheaded the arson attack on the Beitbridge Border Post warehouse.
The name Tajamuka itself connotes violence. Ironically, #Tajamuka is led by an MDC-T son, Promise Mkwananzi, who once served as its National Youth Assembly secretary-general.
In its scheme of things, the MDC-T wants to create new proxies weekly, which it would use as conduits to perpetrate terrorist acts in a bid to cause fear and anarchy in the country.
#MyZimbabwe and #ZimbabweYadzoka are the latest terror babies in town. It will be recalled that during the first round of violence on July 6 2016, MDC-T malcontents led by #Tajamuka, using social media as a platform to spread their terrorist activities, circulated a WhatsApp message educating Zimbabweans on the topic, “How to make a petrol bomb”.
The revelation by Renamo leader Afonso Dhlakama, during an interview with Mozambican newspaper, Savana, that he was “good friends” with the leader of the terrorist outfit that is the MDC-T, Morgan Tsvangirai, is instructive.
Dhlakama has been engaged in a bloody civil war with the Mozambican government for the past four decades.
This is not the first time that the MDC-T has shown its penchant for terrorist activities.
The MDC-T dubbed the year 2007 as the “Year of Action”, which was a euphemism for “Year of Terror.”
In that year, that party, through its terror outfits, Democratic Resistance Committees (DRCs), embarked on an orgy of terror acts, using petrol bombs.
The DRCs bombed police stations in Unit N Police Camp on March 12 2007, Nehanda Police Post in Mkoba on March 13 2007 and Marimba Police Station Camp on March 14 2007, where three female officers were seriously injured.
The MDC-T also burnt houses belonging to Zanu-PF supporters and Zanu-PF offices among other things.
It is instructive that the latest terror attacks come ahead of three international summits, namely; the Sadc Heads of State and Government Summit in Mbabane, Swaziland; the United Nations General Assembly in New York, as well as the Non-Aligned Movement in Venezuela.
The intention is to create a perception of anarchy in the country in order to invite international attention on the country.
The unprovoked acts of terror by the MDC-T are intended to invite a back-lash, and present the attention-seeking MDC-T with an opportunity to use social media to cry wolf when the police justifiably uses minimum force to maintain peace and order, and in the process, have a basis for international intervention in the affairs of Zimbabwe.
The police are investigating the latest terrorist attacks by the MDC-T and some of the chief terrorists are already in police custody, while the net is closing in on the other terrorists.
