Dzamara said that even though they were not responsible for the fight, Zimbabweans should have tried to stop the fight instead of cheering it on,
Apparently, cheerleaders encouraged the fight to go on while they took selfies and videos. The time used to take videos and selfies could have been used to stop the fight. Of course, we are not responsible for the fight those two guys got involved in but do you know that a life or lives could have been lost just like that while others took videos and selfies?
He goes on to ask what those who were cheering found amusing and asks what happened to the spirit of togetherness that citizens used to have. He writes,
On the other hand, the euphoria being radiated around the video of the fight is disgusting. What’s exciting about two grown men fighting in the street? What’s funny about a fight? This just shows how we have allowed ourselves to sink so low and normalise what is abnormal. What happened to us Zimbabweans? What happened to love? What happened to being nice to each other? What happened to being each other’s keeper? Who bewitched us?
He goes on to say that Zimbabwe will never transform for the better if Zimbabweans do not change their attitudes,
This to me exposes how broken we are as a people. This to me exposes the enormous amount of work we must carry out to fix Zimbabwe. Transformation will never happen unless we recalibrate and renew our mindsets. Let’s face it, our humanity has deteriorated to alarming levels and we must fix ourselves.
