When you militarized the streets and avenues of the cities. When you barge into people’s homes. Abduct activists and make phony charges. When you arrest journalists, writers and the ones who expose the dirty secret and scandals of the regime.
Whether, the person is in Harare or in Bulawayo or anywhere else can be taken into custody or even abducted without a trace of location. Days later they will dropped somewhere central with bruises and hurt. While the government itself is making mockery video of fake-abductions, meanwhile the activists are either hiding or family members intimidated by the authorities.
This is the state of what is happening in Zimbabwe. The new dispensation to violate civil liberties, freedom and even basic justice. If you are connected to websites or publications enlightening the minds of the public. Then you can get arrested and get charged with inciting to violence.
If your an activist or a leader who is willing to voice dissent will meet the blunt force of the state. Either yourself or your nearest kin. The police and the authorities are apprehending people for political reasons. Also because the state are going after the ones who organized the 31st July demonstrations and activists in general.
When you clear the streets in the days ahead, keeps soldiers in the streets and goes for manhunt for the ones who is vocal in the republic. You know your on the losing side of history. Yes, for the moment your gaining momentum, but the oppression can only take the so far.
The state can arrest everyone who is somebody with a platform and a voice. They are all in danger. As the state uses all means, besieging homes, raiding offices or even arresting people on the streets. There is nothing that isn’t unacceptable.
If Mnangagwa thinks this is a winning a formula. His wrong and will in the end loose. He is showing power and bullets now. However, the government and the authorities are not respected by this. They are feared and intimidating the public. They are inciting fear and using force on its own. The ones its supposed to protect. These are the ones its supposed to serve, but instead hold them hostage.
That is why the state has cleared the streets. This is how Mnangagwa and his allies will be remembered. The way its actively clamping down on its own. Either the opposition or the anti-government activists. They are all fair game and able prey of the state. This game of showing no mercy and cold-blooded attack on civilians.
Shows what values the state has and what is important to them. The public are useful pawns, but not vital to them. They can be used to get loans, development grants and such. However, when their voicing dissent, they are useless piece of garbage who can be tossed away. Nevertheless, eating the funds to help them is nice.
So, when journalists or activists speaks out about the eating. Then they deserve to linger in the dungeon until oblivion. That is what the state does… and this is how Mnangagwa will be remembered. The New Dispensation was a fraud. Mnangagwa is terrified of the people and it shows. He has to use the army to quell them and cannot even use civilian ways. Neither can the state allow dissent to demonstrate against it. That shows how little civil space its in the republic under Mnangagwa.
President Emmerson Mnangagwa, we know your living in wealth, eating of the plate of the government and your family is richer than God. You have land, businesses and a title, as the head of state. The republic is ill and your running it. Something you have done since the toppling of Mugabe.
Mnangagwa, now that your openly goes after activists, when the ruling regime are claiming main opposition party is terrorist and writers, journalists and activists are detained. If not, they are abducted. Like the recent act against ZimLives journalist and editor, Mduduzi Mathuthu, whose house was raided by the Police today. While confiscating cameras, computers and such.
All of this is done, while the opposition and tired public is gearing up for tomorrows demonstrations on the 31st July 2020. The activists and journalists who has covered this has put their life in danger. The police have haunted them and even asked for interviews.
Everyone who are looking into the corruption actions of the President and his men is getting into trouble. Just like Hopewell Chin’ono. Who is awaiting trail, as the state is working on producing evidence and his lingering in jail, denied bail. That is what the state does.
This is the state that Mnangagwa is serving the world. While using the loyalists of business to talk against demonstrations and getting authorities to call out COVID-19 guidelines as reasons to block these events. While UN organizations comes out defending the rights of the public to demonstrate.
How much pain do you want to add Mr. Mnangagwa? You know this, right? That your are the reason why people are burden in pain and suffering? You know that when we leaves this life, we all have to answer the same God, right? This means, there is no difference between us and we have to answer for our actions and choices in life, Mr. Mnangagwa are you ready to do that?
You should consider your actions and what you do. If your thinking your a big-man to send the army to the streets, putting up road-blocks and intimidate the ones on the barricade for the public. Then you are wrong Mr. Mnangagwa. This is not governing, but an armed siege of the public.
This is what you are. Your going to homes, take away critics and later make up charges. You intimidate and expects obedience. However, you are supposed to rule on accord with the public and after their wishes. They are not to blindly get commanded by you and yours. That is what you do.
While getting the guns, the ammo and the officers to civilians homes to intimidate them. That is what you do. If not, you get people arrested or abducted, because you can and later you read a scripture to act Godly. While you shouldn’t even sing a hymn or psalm.
Mr. Mnangagwa, I understand why you are called a crocodile. You are eating people and leaving their skeletons behind. You are coming with your teeth and spreading fear. That is apparently who you are.
So, Mr. Mnangagwa should we anticipate a bloodshed and a sudden rise in fatalities tomorrow? Peace.
Yellow Bastard: “You can’t do a goddamn thing to me, Hartigan. You know who I am. You know who my father is! You can’t touch me, you piece of shit cop! Look at you, you can’t even lift that cannon you carry!” – Sin City (2005).
ZANU-PF Spokesperson Patrick Chinamasa have clearly not any scruples nor any quarrels anymore. He just pulls out all the guns. There are no mercy. Just shooting into the air and seeing which birds that falls from the sky. If lucky he might even hit an aeroplane.
Why do I say this, well, the man said these things today:
“Zanu PF calls upon our supporters, cadres and sympathisers, wherever you are, to remain alert and ready to defend yourselves, defend our people, their property and most importantly defend peace in your communities against these malcontents, these hired hooligans and hoodlums who rejoice at burning properties and looting” (Chinamasa, 27.07.2020).
“Zanu PF therefore appeals to our people to be misled by MDC Alliance malcontents. If the violent activities perpetrated by the MDC opposition were acts done in Europe or the United States, they would have been branded a long time ago a terrorist organisation which in fact they are, along with their trojan horses like the ZCTU, Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition and others which depend on foreign funding for their anti-people activities” (Chinamasa, 27.07.2020).
I will specify why this is outrageous. This is beneath his station and his position. As the spokesperson for a government to act and speak this words are vile. It is disgraceful and distasteful. However, not very surprising, as the state is going after any activist or people involved with the 31st July demonstrations. They are targeting and arresting, even killing activists in association. Therefore, the language only mirrors the actions of the authorities, which are ordered by the set government party.
That he is saying these things. Only shows the arrogance and the junta perspective of civilian disobedience, but also the reality on the ground. The militant ZANU-PF are not taking soft grounds, except if it favour them. The party is going straight to the trenches and wars, if they are challenged.
That is why the MDC-Alliance is suddenly terrorists for their constitutional rights of demonstrations. That is how bonkers the ZANU-PF is and how deluded Chinamasa is. It is really a gift of foolery. Fools gold sold as certified gold. Only numb-nuts and dipshits would take this as truths.
Calling opposition party and their members for terrorist is a dangerous mine-field. Where only the citizens will loose. It is a one-party move, where the ruling regime will muffle and silence all critics at any cost. There is no middle ground and place to voice discontent. Only praising the magical wonders of ZANU-PF and their comrades. The rest got to suffer if their opinion differs.
That is the ground put forward. All for a planned demonstration on the 31st July. The state goes this to assault, detain and propagandize the events. It is really stunning and worrying. When a spokesperson can say this and get away with it. It shows the heart of ZANU-PF. The reason for their ruling. Which it is rule with an iron fist. Peace.
When the Zimbabwe Republican Police (ZRP) have today “sought” for “interviews” for 14 activists, some who happens to be Movement for Democratic Change – Alliance (MDC-Alliance). These are people who get into legal jeopardy now and then. They are known people and its not new. ZANU-PF calls them anarchists, but that says more ZANU-PF than about the activists themselves. Because, they are only supporting the constitutional rights to demonstrate. Something that is always fine when ZANU-PF does a demo or goes to the street for a cause, which fits them.
These 14 are just following the journalists and other politicians who are behind bars for “inciting violence”. The “inciting violence” is a code for “annoying the president”. These 14 leaders in the MDC-Alliance and other organizations; are all annoying the President and that is why the police is searching for them.
The Police is now asking for them and for “interviews” like they are applicants for jobs. They are searching for a new career in the Police Force. What these 14 activists should expect is interrogations and get detained. Surely to be charged for “inciting violence” too.
All of them are most likely working in their respective areas to drum up support for the 31st July demonstrations. The same ones that gotten others arrested already and awaiting trail. While they are a awaiting freedom.
The 14 in question will be deemed the same fate. Especially, if they ever shows up to any Police Station. We know these people are in serious problem.
The interviews is the bait and soon the switch is the arrest. They will suddenly pass through a door and not return home. These men are now outlaws, by their actions of supporting demonstrations, which is hurting the pride of the regime. That is why everyone associated with it and who is high ranking are in jeopardy.
They are trying to take one by one out. These is just de-escalating matters. Proving that the free speech in Zimbabwe is only for ZANU-PF people and the others are fair game. Peace.
Well, we can learn one thing of late. If you expose the activities or plan to undermine the regime of Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF). Than your “inciting violence” and will be charged with criminal behaviour. Even if your a journalist doing your job, just reporting on the matters at hand. If your telling the stories that the governing party doesn’t want to get told. Then your a the problem and creating the violence.
The violence, the inciting of it. Is in the fragile minds of the regime. The little bootlickers and the stooges of the party. The ones who is beloved and parishioners of the Junta regime. The ones who prays and obeys the high command. The selfless praise of ED and Chiwenga, like they are filled with the holy ghost and have the salvation of Jesus. However, we know both of them have not.
The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe is mixing the economy is such a juggernaut way. That the US Dollar and Zim dollar policies losing sense. While raiding ECOCASH and ECOBANK is only to stop the RTGS Dollars from flowing. If not finding another money laundering operation to bankroll the scarfs of the party.
Whatever it is, it is not working and the state can only prolong the agony so far. The looses are piling up. The jig is up and the ones exposing it. Has to been gone. If that is Hopewell Chin’ono or Jacob Ngariyhume. Other journalists have been taken into custody and later released. That is just what the state does now.
Ngariyhume is inciting violence, because he wants to demonstrate against the oppression and corrupt government. He dares to inspire and rebel against the state. A state that had no trouble to incite violence of their own with toppling the President for Life Mugabe and have rallies against sanctions. However, when people plan to rally against them now. It is a criminal affair. Do you see the double idiotic standard? I do and I hope you does as well.
Hopewell has just undermined and exposed the government. He is just a savvy and wise journalist with no fear. Doing his job and proving his skills. That is why, a mediocre and lackluster administration fears him. Hopewell can find things and tell a story. Military men and propagandist can only defend and lie. That is opposite of what Hopewell does and that is why his behind bars.
Both of them are not criminal. They are both citizens, doing their jobs as citizens. They are in the forefront and battling for justice and equality. They are in the midst of troubles, because they are able to trigger the faint-hearted military men in power. The ones who doesn’t have the character or stamina to be questioned. They only know how to use force, because they don’t have brains to address things differently.
They are just promoters of injustice and impunity. The junta, the regime and the New Dispensation. When you can demonstrate yourself for your own cause, but when the citizens does, it is violence. Its foolish and outrageous. Not shocking, because that what men like these does. They cannot stomach or have ability to understand other people’s grievances, but they will expect you praise their every single breath. They are the majesties and the royalty of the Republic. If your not bowing your knees, your not doing it right. If you stand up to them. Its violent, because you displeased His Excellency and his court. Peace.
