One Comment on “David Parirenyatwa Voted WHO Assembly President

  1. Pindula – instead of celebrating a countryman who is helping put our country on the map in international waters, by winning the respect of his peers internationally, the first ever Zimbabwean to be elected to such an austere international body – you elect to post an article which you cannot resist to make a party-political agenda driven article.

    What have you ever done of note, Editor? (or whichever misguided sphincter wrote this article). If his peers in their 20 years of interacting him give him respect ad kudos to lead them, why can you not celebrate that?

    The fact that healthcare has been underfunded by Zimbabwean government from the top down – is not the fault of a cabinet minister. His job is to portfolio manage the scarce resource as best he can.

    Your job – is put Zimbabwe on the map internationally and save the bar-room insults for home.
