Why Zanu PF hates young people

Mnangagwa - "The Crocodile" is an old man
A few months ago, this Zanu government, using its agents, abducted and abused Joana Mamombe, Cecillia Chimbiri and Netsai Marova, three young women from the MDC Alliance. What’s even more sinister is that the three are still being held on house arrests despite requiring medical and psychological treatment, and JUSTICE. The State is charging them of faking their own abduction and sexual assault – how wretched can Zanu get? More recently we have seen MDC youths being assaulted and arrested in trumped up charges, to name a few, Godfrey Kurauone, Judith Tobaiwa, Sekai Muchaina.

These terrible events got me thinking and I quickly realised that Zanu really has a problem with the youth i.e Zanu PF really hates young people! To get a better understanding of this issue, I began to read a bit and spoke to a few political observers who had their own theories as to why Zanu is doing this. Eventually, I came to the following conclusion;

Zanu PF, especially the old men at the top of the party, hate young people because young people have their whole lives ahead of them; they are forward looking, they worry about their future and the future of Zimbabwe. Young people are generally an innovative demography, constantly coming up with better ideas on how the country should be run. They do not have blood on their hands, and so sleep peacefully. They are physically fit and have much more bearable faces and are fancied by the young mistresses who are entangled with the old men of Zanu PF!

Mnangagwa has even had a Statue made of himself - and just as ugly!
If you look at the elderly men running Zimbabwe, none of them possess these characteristics, in fact they are the complete opposite of youthfulness, like the devil is to Jesus. They have blood on their hands, which probably means they get unannounced nightly visitations from the people they killed in the last 40 years. They are backward looking because they lack innovation. They lack innovation because they have never had to innovate to survive, they feed off other people's hard work. They don’t care about the future of Zimbabwe because they are not part of it – a lot of them are 10 years deep into retirement age. To the eye they look hellish, and on top of that they don’t look like a bundle of health either, many of them are allegedly riddled with all sorts of conditions.

Because of their huge stake in the future of Zimbabwe, the fight for a better Zimbabwe will mostly come from the youth just as it was against the Rhodesians in the 1960s and 70s. In the next 10-20 years the youth will be in their 30s, 40s and early 50s, while a majority of the old men in Zanu PF will be rooming with Mugabe in the depths of hell. The few who will still be around will be feeding from a tube, hopefully in receipt of prison style domiciliary care in Chikurubi or at The Hague. I think this is why these old men are so bitter and hateful towards the young people of Zimbabwe or anyone resembling youthness both physically and in terms of ideas. This is probably one of the reasons why Zanu leaders hate Nelson Chamisa so much. This is probably why Zanu PF youth leaders are dried up middle aged men in their 50s!

Long live, the youth of Zimbabwe!!

On July 31st, Zimbabweans should speak from the Heart

On the 31st of July, Zimbabweans will come out to demonstrate against Zanu PF and how this gang of cruel men and women has ruined their country almost to the point of no return. In this article, I want to urge people to make this demo very personal for themselves. The world will be watching, be a part of history. I am urging people to speak from the heart through various media at their disposal, be it posters or placards in the streets, or tweets, Facebook posts, text messages, WhatsApp messages, audio recordings, and much else. Let's make the world feel our cries and despair.

Between now and the 31st of July, I urge everyone who is taking part to take a moment and decide on the message they want to convey to the world with regards to the atrocities Zanu has been carrying out in our once lovely country.  The message has to be personal for it to be impactful. Say what’s in your heart. See how Zanu has failed you, see how they have cut off your potential. You had dreams when you were young to be 'somebody' when you grow up. By now you thought you would have a house of your own, a decent job or a business of your own, but now you can’t even have a decent meal, no water; electricity is touch and go and a headache can kill you because the health system has been so run down by Zanu theft and incompetence.

You see people of your age whose parents are Zanu officials driving around in plush cars bought by money that is stolen from your heritage as a Zimbabwean citizen. Look around you, see the damage Zanu has done to your loved ones. Your uncle who died from malaria because he could not afford to pay for the prescription, your aunt who died from diabetes because the family could not afford to pay for the insulin; your grandfather who had to be ferried to a local clinic at night by wheelbarrow only to find it closed because there is no money to run it – it’s been stolen by Zanu.  Look at the mothers with their hungry babies lying on street pavements 12 hours in the cold only to sell a handful of tomatoes.

Look at the dreams Zanu have shattered, university graduates selling airtime cards on street corners, young girls who are having to sell their bodies to men like the old men in Zanu and their rich friends. Look at the people fleeing Zimbabwe into South Africa, including mothers with babies on their back trying to sneak under razor wire. Many of these people will never see their relatives again, many will miss funerals of loved ones, some may even be unfortunate enough to be subjected to another wave of xenophobic machete attacks in South Africa. This is what Zanu has done to us.

Have this deep think, and then design your makeshift placard. Tell the world what you think about Zanu, Mnangagwa, Chiwenga and all the cruel people in this government. Tell the world what these people have done to you, to your family, to the neighbourhood you grew up in, and to your country. Tell the world you want all of them gone, all of them, from the president to wastes of space like that Matemadanda man who continues to embarrass us all whenever he opens his mouth.

On July 31, speak from the heart!!

Corruption: the Cancer in our government

Corruption has been a Cancer which has eaten its way to the heart of Zimbabwe’s social, economic and political landscape for past thirty years, prevalent in the Robert Mugabe’s era, with Zimbabwe considered to be one of the most corrupt countries in the world, little has changed in the Post-Mugabe Zimbabwe.

President Mnangagwa having been 'heralded' as the bearer of change and a break away from the old authoritarian rule and economic mismanagement, immediately upon inauguration declared an open war on corruption stating;

  “acts of corruption must stop forthwith, every case of corruption must be investigated and punished in accordance with the dictates of our law”. 

After two years in power, to what extent has Mnangagwa managed to curb corruption? In short, its bleak.
Obadiah Moyo

With the recent arrest of the Health and childcare Obadiah Moyo, for alleged corruption related to the procurement of Covid-19 test kits and medical equipment supply to combat the corona virus pandemic, endangering the lives of our health care worker who had to fight the virus with little to no PPE. Mr. Moyo was granted bail and is set to appear before the court again on the 31st of July.
Mr. Moyo became the second minister to be arrested on charges of corruption in Mnangagwa’s government, after the arrest of the former minister of tourism Prisca Mupfumira on corruption involving $95 million from the state pension fund.

Both ministers have proven to be part of a dysfunctional ruling power, institutionalized corruption scheme and power-hungry leader who are willing to serve self over masses. Until actual arrests have been made and justice served the President’s fight against corruption is just but a lip service which not baked up with action.

“The recent admission by President Mnangagwa of corruption within the top government official point to a deep rooted problem within our government and show how corruption is embedded in Zanu PF’s DNA ,the only way to deal with such a system is to cut the head off the snake “

A comment from made by Sandra Bvungidzire a political activist in the diaspora .

Till the government takes a radical step towards the fight against corruption by not sparing the rod to all political heavy weights who engage in the abuse of office, our country will remain in a free fall path towards destruction.
