I am only demanding transparency, living wage and fairness

OPINION

Revolutionary greetings Comrades. I speak to you away from home and family. Away from all that I hold dear and sacred. I did not steal, kill or rape. I only did what any well meaning and patriotic Zimbabwean citizen would do. I simply demanded the fruits and dividends of our collective struggle for independence.

I simply followed up on what (Mbuya) Nehanda and other heroes of our struggle died for. I demanded accountability, a living wage, transparency, fairness, natural justice and democracy from what is supposed to be our government. How that basic demand has been criminalised escapes logic and common sense.

Cdes, I am not bitter. Neither am I hopeless. Angry, yes. Like any other citizen I am bound to be angry at what our nation has been reduced to. I have no regret whatsoever on my call for the resounding success of 31 July. The nation was brought to a halt. Citizens showed who has power to make the country move. It is the citizens in their various stations. That was the beginning.

We continue to demand what we have been agitating for. We demand an end to corruption, a living wage and an end of Nazism in our nation. Fellow citizens let us continue to organise and fight. Let us tap on the goodwill and solidarity pouring from the international community and finish what we started. We are saying corruption must fall, be paid a decent living wage, That is not a crime.

If our Government Officials and of course Zanu Pf refuses to cut its umbilical cord from corruption so, yes, they can as well fall together.

Let me warn the those Oppressors. You can’t win against the people. Time does not run out of time. You can neither cheat nor fornicate with time. Your time will be up and you are accelerating it Now!

#ZimbabweanLivesMatter

The struggle continues.
