Zimbabwe: Baba Jukwa Latest Index Troubles ZANU PF
A Troublemaker Emerges In Zimbabwe Elections, Zimbabwe’s Julian Assange Dishes Dirty: these were some of the top stories on Sunday morning.
A latest popularity index tip based on the “Helmut Norpoth Cycle of Presidential Popularity” has sprung ZANU PF into panic amid a rising belief that Facebook personality Baba Jukwa has become more popular and community gripping than the country’s old national television and radio broadcaster, ZBC.
“If Baba Jukwa truly represents Morgan Tsvangirai, and Amai Jukwa Robert Mugabe and these digits were quickly converted into live ballot votes, then Robert Mugabe’s political career has come to a sudden end,” commented political analyst Perry Mukwatira.
The report debated by Indigenisation Minister Savior Kasukuwere, propaganda mouth-ripper Jonathan Moyo and other senior cadres suggests that ZANU PF is now no more. In the report, the pro-Tsvangirai Baba Jukwa was ranked more than 86% in popularity above the pro-Mugabe Amai Jukwa Facebook page. It has resulted in Saviour Kasukuwere admitting in public that he actually intently follows Baba Jukwa’s posts daily.
Said Kasukuwere: “I do read (Baba Jukwa), I am a politician and a smart one too. I find myself in this limelight because of the portfolio I am in charge of. It naturally would attract much more than what I am going through. It is about the liberation of our people. It’s about the economic independence of our country.”
Both Likes and Site-wide talk influence were measured and Baba Jukwa was found to be daily and exponentially towering over Amai Jukwa.
The index has since resulted in top ZANU PF functionaries monitoring progress and encouraging the youth in ZANU PF to “like” Amai Jukwa.
Meanwhile, Baba Jukwa’s Facebook page’s likes continued to rise every second with both the Central Intelligence Organisation(CIO) and top ZANU PF officials following closely.
