Jealous Mawarire (Former Spokesman ZimPeopleFirst)

Harare, Zimbabwe (News of the South) – When political parties hit the campaign trail, pictures like these will be trending. Forget the sugarcane eating Kodak moments, these ones are the real deal.

 

Here the spiritual and political conflate. Reason and religiosity intertwine and the spiritual becomes both a strategic mobilisation tool as well as the telescope that purportedly gives sight to distant phenomena.

 

It blinds in as much as it envisions. Imminent defeats are obfuscated by cajoling euphemisms that the spiritual elders often give their clients to avoid heart attacks in situ.

 

Yes, the spiritual avails the necessary shock absorbers needed in this unpredictable field of electora politics.

 

 

It brings with it the palliative care demanded by dying political careers while providing some bravado to the political optimists who always see victory even when the odds are stacked, visibly, against them.

 

Some of us are bracing for the intrigue, the macabre and unfortunately, the grotesque. The season is upon us. Let the drama begin.
