In a post on Facebook Bajila said the first front will that which will be pro President Robert Mugabe which he called, the “None but Bob Front.”

\n

“This is a group of people that genuinely feels that Mugabe must go but has a legacy that needs to be defended,” Bajila said.

\n

“They have weighed likely successors and deemed all of them unfit to succeed Mugabe. They thus believe that they could be the rightful people but the ground is not conducive for their entry and hence prefer that Mugabe stays in office while they prepare their ground. This group is known as G40. While G40 supposedly abbreviates Generation 40 ( and therefore people legally eligible to contest Presidency ) most of its members are in the 50s”

He also said the second front will be that of succession which he called, “secessionists Front.”

\n

“These are available in ZANU PF, MDCT & Mujuru’s imaginary party People First. The major focus of secessionists is to position themselves as the best group to succeed Mugabe in 2018 or earlier. Those who feel they are ready to take over prefer his earlier departure. Those who feel they need time to prepare wish Mugabe stays long enough to sustain the currency of their preparation,” he said.

\n

Bajila said all secessionists exhibit signs that should they capture state power they are likely to continue with the divisive, destructive, strongman and malicious tendencies of Mugabe.

\n

He said the last front will be that of those who want the party reformed and he called them the, “Reformist Front.”

\n

“This is a group or cluster of political parties concerned with change of policy, institutional culture and many sorts of things in the realm of philosophy, ideology and principles,” he said. “They’re led by career men in education, legal practice, finance & to a lesser extent intelligence. Their promises are always around reforming the state and at times their promises are so ahead of our times that they escape the imagination of the electorate
