“The Zimbabwe National Water Authority (ZINWA) has disconnected water supplies to Gokwe over a ZWL$45 million debt owed by government departments, parastatals and residents. Of the $45 million, $7 million was owed by government departments and parastatals” (263Chat.com, 02.12.2021).
It is just days ago since in the Gokwe area that the Republic supported building new boreholes and such for the Solar Plants and the industrialization there. While at the Politburo on 1st December 2021 President Emmerson Mnangagwa said: “I had the honour to officially open the Presidential Climate Proofed Pfvumvudza /lntwasa Programme in Gokwe North District, which has now been expanded to cover the production of cotton”.
The Gokwe area is clearly having a water problems for both industries and the citizens as well. That is why the Gokwe Town Council is building boreholes. Still, the state is defaulting on this and not able to run it’s bills. As the Midlands area is now without water in its tap. This is bills that is running on government accounts and supposed to be paid by government entities.
Everyone is losing access to water by default, because the government cannot handle their own bills. That is tragic, but the reality. While the Town Council of Gokwe have another budget and accounts. The whole Republic and all parts of government should be able to cover the debts. This is tragic way of governing and the citizens are losing water access, because of lenient government officers who doesn’t act upon the need.
Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) isn’t doing what is needed for the citizens. They are not covering the bills to it’s own entities to pay another government entity. So, because of all these government entities isn’t paying their bills. The third party is losing access. That is what is tragic here and the general public needs water. Not only in a pandemic, where everyone is supposed to wash their hands and keep each other clean. However, that is something that is needed in general and part of all parts of consumption. Therefore, this is making life harder for civilians in Gokwe.
The central government in Harare should fix this, but don’t expect to much. They will make a long process and this will take time. Since, this isn’t hurting themselves that hard. If there was a big-man or someone of prominence in the area. Things might would have change quicker. Nevertheless, not expect that.
Just imagine that… the government cannot even cover the water bills on time. Peace.
“You said you wanted Shumba, Murambwi, President Mnangagwa, a competent leader, a leader who will be our candidate in the 2023 elections, so that he can achieve his vision 2030. His detractors have been defeated and are now saying this and that. Zanu PF will rule forever and if they dare (the naysayers), we will amend the law that we want (President Emerson Mnangagwa) forever” – Gen. Constantino Chiwenga on the 17th November 2021 in Beitbridge
I don’t know if you remember, but at one point the Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) wanted to give Mugabe life presidency and continue to rule in heaven as well. Mugabe could die at one point and they would still let run the nation from the coffin. That is what the high ranking officials and leaders of the regime said. This is not hearsay, but a reality that we have lived in.
The ones that toppled him, the Lacoste fraction who is now running the ZANU-PF now working on overtime to sell the crocodile aka President Emmerson Mnangagwa. Mnangagwa have only been in office for a few years, but they are trying to prepare for him to say for life. Mugabe stayed in office for most of his life and now they want the same for the Second Republic. This is the new dispensation… and what they do.
It wouldn’t be shocking if the Constitution get revised or amended to fit Mnangagwa. That is just what the ZANU-PF does. It doesn’t matter if Queen B or any sort of cartel says something. They are all working together. Lacoste branch is bashing in glory and drinking Scotch Whiskey in such a manner, which the people of Glasgow wouldn’t do themselves. This because the ZANU-PF isn’t really feeling the pinch of the sanctions. They are just crying out loud … and blaming others for their mismanagement and grand corruption.
We knew this was coming. The ZANU-PF wouldn’t kill civilians after the previous elections to silent them for fun. They did that to strike fear and total control. The ZANU-PF have the military and the machinery behind it. Mnangagwa can keep this up, as long as the soldiers are paid and the veterans are getting scraps. That is what they do and they thrive on it.
Mnangagwa will not deliver to the general public. The promises of previous elections was just for publicity. He has no intentions to do that. They are just there to enriching themselves and move-on. The rotten row and the courts are going after activists and real journalists. Not the ones who is exposing the reality and the truth, which they try to keep hidden.
Nobody should be shocked that Mnangagwa wants to rule for life. He just continues where Mugabe left off. The crocodile copying the goblin was inevitable. They are both eaten up by the greed of power. This is what they do… and no one should be ever surprised by this…
Mnangagwa wants to be the President for Life. The ZANU-PF wants that and they have already prepared his candidacy for the next election. They have already anointed him and they are prepared to do it until his last breath. That’s just what they do and there is nothing new under the sun.
The Crocodile is just like the goblin and his party never changed. They just tried to repaint the old stale vomit and bloodstains. They didn’t change the oppression, the state sponsored violence or the lack of democratic aspiration. The only thing they did… was to get a new head and a few “new” faces in cabinet. Peace.
