ZHLR: Fresh Clampdown on Dissent as Zim Authorities Charge Man for Undermining Mnangagwa (28.05.2018)
I write what I like.
Mr. Robert Gabriel Mugabe, I know your old and in advanced age, but someone have to learn you how to be silent. You should be silent and not even whistle in public. Your lucky to have your life, have a giant pension and also still keep your wealth. Your extremely lucky that the current administration and the current leadership wasn’t flogging you and taking you to court after the coup d’etat in November 2017.
Your extremely lucky, so reading that your bitching again about your life post-presidency. You better know better. You are living life and lavishly, while the ones who haven’t eaten the 37 years of rule. Are still struggling day to day, there is still problems within the state and its organizations. What you have left behind is dozens of people who don’t know where their family members are, the activists and political opponents you ordered to vanish or get rid off. They are worse off and knows nothing.
You have claimed dozens of lives, while living life of luxury, eating the best of best food, while others are awaiting donations and food relief from foreign sources. The rule of yours has destroyed the economy and even the currency. Still, you have the audacity to complain and bitch to a fellow dictator for life. How dare you?
Your lucky your not in bracelets, that your reign ended without bloodshed and without insecurity. Because you took it all and expected to get away with it all. That you could loot, celebrate and get rid of the ones standing in your way. It is insane that your living in your mansion, have your cars and owns the various estates. While the state is lacking funds and struggles to pay civil servants. When you have over the years stolen millions upon millions dollars. Which could help all the working families within the state and generate better services.
Your are lucky to keep all of that, that your not going to court every single day answering litigation’s and cases of corruptions, kidnappings and violations of human rights, because there are dozens of people who would enjoy seeing your answering for your crimes. Because you hurt so many people’s lives, you ate their plate and enjoyed yourself on others people’s hardship.
Therefore, you should be silent and pray to the almighty God, that the leadership and administration, haven’t touched you and haven’t acted upon at all. They haven’t taken away or even whisked away anything, which you have stolen during the years. You have gotten away with major crimes and not have to answer. You have been in charge of grand corruption and still breathing the free air and not being behind bars.
You are lucky, super lucky that Mnangagwa and the Lacoste didn’t do you harm. They stripped your title and your office, but have kept everything else. You are a bit to lucky, you would deserve a public trial and answer for the ills you have committed to others on your watch. That would have justice, because all the other citizens answer for their bad activity and trespassing of the law. So he should answer for that too.
Your damn lucky your not behind closed doors not seeing or feeling the sun, not hearing the rain or the thunder. But being free at the Blue Roof and enjoying retirement in wealth. Other people wouldn’t get that well off after what you have done and did.
So please. Do yourself a favor. Become silent and enjoy it. Your bitching isn’t doing any good. It is just making more people more eager to retaliate and your don’t want to a prison guards bitch do you?
No, I didn’t think so. Peace.
Let me be clear, the rally and the race for the Presidency has begun, all parties are having rallies and the biggest contenders are the ruling regime Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (Zanu-PF) with their incumbent President Emmerson Mnangagwa, he will use all tricks, all of the state machinery and not do anything in that regard. If he blows the budget, misuse government institutions and resources, that is to be expected. Already, the media are in favour of the state machinery and the state party line. That being that they praise anything and everything Mnangagwa does.
However, the main contender Nelson Chamisa of the Movement for Democratic Change – Alliance (MDC-A). is under cross-fire every single day. Not that is doing anything wrong, he might slip up and that will be taken advantage of. Trust me, he is the least candidate in the race that can do anything wrong. He will be under so much fire and scruitiny, that you would think he created a world-war and a major crisis. If Mnangagwa did the same, they will be silent about it or not even make much fuzz. That is because the Chamisa program and stances are in sharp contrast to whatever Zanu-PF stands for at this point.
Zanu-PF already proclaimed their war-chest, their massive PR show and campaign rallies, they are ready to go all guns salute, even when they are not interested in changing electoral laws, since that will make it easier for them to win. All of the Electoral Commission are appointed by the man and directly controlled, so the results could be managed in their favour. Therefore, it is far from a level playing field in this race. None of the 100 other candidates got anything in significant resemblance of the Zanu-PF. That the MDC-A/T has a big organization and a massive standing in the public is visible. However, they don’t have the state behind them and neither the resources to compete.
Chamisa might have the swagger, the strength and resilience to compete, but he will be under-fire for every single word he utters. He cannot say anything wrong or be close to be misunderstood by anyone. Mnangagwa can sleepwalk, be dizzy and even mumble rap like Future on stage, and still be praised by state friendly media houses. Nevertheless, if Chamisa did the same, they would say he needed to go to the hospital and get a mental exam. That is just the way it is.
This will be unfriendly, the Op-Eds will crucify Chamisa and the MDC. They will tarnish him, they will look through his history and pin-point all the past mistakes, ex-girlfriends and his missteps against Tsvangirai if they have too. As long as the purpose, is to make Mnangagwa the king and the holy of the holiest. Chamisa will be the ugly duckling, the mockery of the Republic and the insane drunk uncle, which you don’t want to invite to your party.
Therefore, expect madness, expect a headache and nonsense in Formula One speed. There will be no redemption, there will be no mercy. Only the Zanu-PF way and nothing else, if so Gen. Chiwenga will order his troops and they will ask you to salute to His Excellency. They will not beg for it, they will take it. Peace.
