Police were deployed heavily outside Parliament and on the main streets in late afternoon, forcing shop owners to abandon their business…” (Africa Junkies, 2016)
“Let me cut right to the chase and say to President Robert Mugabe: I am sorry Mr. President, but I do not believe that the fifteen billion dollars is missing. I cannot believe that it is missing simply because you tell the nation that it is. The reality is that fifteen billion dollars does not just go missing. Somebody knows where it is and why it is where it is” (…) “This is a serious matter that needs every Zimbabwean to be seriously exercised about. We are entering a period where we cannot afford not to be vigilant, not to be suspicious of a party that has become accustomed to doing evil” (…) “It is important for the international community to recognize that our minister of finance’s desperate pleas for help do not mean Zanu PF has changed, or that it does not have a plan to foil the will of the people in 2018. It is one thing to be desperate, and quite another to have changed one’s ways” (…) “Like the $15 billion we are asked to believe is missing, we are also asked to believe that this government has nothing to do with the disappearance of Zimbabwe’s sons and daughters like Itai Dzamara, Rashiwe Guzha and others before them” (…) “Countrymen, this is Dr. Noah Manyika from Build Zimbabwe saying: Do not believe a lie. Is there not a cause? #BuildZimbabwe”

Today a new demonstration where held in Harare, Zimbabwe as a result of the planned economic framework and giving the citizens bond-notes that will give the Government under President Robert Mugabe and ZANU-PF more national debt. As the sanctions and the economic prosperity are soon into oblivion as the foreign exchange and the fiscal policy is played by the ruling regime. To feed the ZANU-PF elite under the Executive, but not deliver any progress or development for the random Zimbabwean citizens. Take a look!

This is just enough for now. The ZANU-PF regime use all tools to oppress their citizens and their voices against the Government. As they have been used as Pawns for a long time and deserve somebody who really represent them. That doesn’t the current leaders and their Party who cares about their wealth, but not about the state of affairs for the average citizen in Zimbabwe. Peace.
