Wake up Zimbos
Till when are we going to keep our mouth shut?
ED Mnangagwa is violating the constitution of Zimbabwe. This country is now a military state.
The Army is supposed to be apolitical, yet they have proven to be ZANUs. About 2 weeks ago Army Generals were roped into the cabinet. Now on this Zanu PF special Congress all the ZDF Coup leaders were there chanting party slogans. As if slogans are not enough Major General Rugeje of the Zimbabwe Defense Forces was appointed National Commissar! Shame. As it is, it’s now evident that General Chiwenga and ED Mnangagwa crafted the Mugabe ouster. It was never about the Zimbabweans but about their egoistic agendas.
The military is supposed to protect us citizens not to be politicians. Till when are we going to keep our mouth shut!!? Let’s open our eyes as a Nation.
We marched for the betterment of Zimbabwe not for the military to abuse fellow citizens. Army brutality is now witnessed in all corners of our beautiful nation. Politicians are there to serve us and the army is there to protect us. We have to Unite once again and show the military the power of a common man.
Are we going to keep our mouth shut? Are we going to have free and fair elections under this leadership?
Is this the work of the military? Where did the 1st lady Mai Mnangagwa get the money to buy hampers for 8000 guests?
We urge all Zimbabweans to Unite against this iron fist leadership.
