Leaders must be elected based on a legitimate process in the 2018 Elections - Shingi Munyeza
Prominent businessman and cleric Shingi Munyeza has called on the government to align the laws governing the electoral process in line with the new constitution in order to ensure legitimacy. He said that anything less would result in an illegitimate outcome. Munyeza contends that legitimacy will be the real battle for the 2018 Elections, as without legitimacy, Zimbabwe will be much worse off than we are.
In his “The Watchman” series, Munyeza says:
#TOITASEI #SENZENJANI #WHATNEXT “LEGITIMIZING THE ILLEGITIMATE” • ELECTED LEADERSHIP MUST BE BASED ON A LEGITIMATE PROCESS. • A LEGITIMATE PROCESS MUST BE CONGRUENT TO AN AGREED CONSTITUTION, LAWS AND REGULATIONS. • UNTIL OUR ELECTORAL PROCESS IS IN LINE WITH LAWS THAT ARE ALIGNED TO OUR CONSTITUTION PARTICIPATION IN THE FORTHCOMING 2018 ELECTIONS WILL ONLY LEGITIMIZE THE ILLEGITIMATE. • NO MATTER HOW MANY PEOPLE VOTE IT WILL STILL BE AN ILLEGITIMATE OUTCOME. • THE REAL BATTLE FOR 2018 ELECTIONS IS ONE OF LEGITIMACY – WITHOUT LEGITIMACY WE WILL BE WORSE OFF THAN WHERE WE ARE. . THOSE ELIGIBLE TO VOTE MUST REGISTER BUT WITHOUT A LEGITIMATE PROCESS IN PLACE VOTING LEGITIMIZES AN ILLEGITIMATE PROCESS. #BE WARNED!!! • Matthew 3:13-17, Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him. And John tried to prevent Him, saying, “I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?” But Jesus answered and said to him, “Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he allowed Him. When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” • THIS WAS A LEGITIMATE PROCESS ALIGNED TO ALL RIGHTEOUSNESS AND IT HAD A LEGITIMATE OUCOME AND HEAVEN ENDORSED IT. • LETS PRAY THAT WE HAVE A LEGITIMATE PROCESS IN ORDER TO HAVE A LEGITIMATE OUTCOME.
