An ex-army officer, Knowledge Kafuramika (27) has threatened to stomp the State House and confront President Emmerson Mnangagwa over the current economic challenges.
In an interview with 263chat, the ‘bold’ former army officer said that in his view, Mnangagwa has failed and should be held responsible. Kafuramika had this to say:
We have reached a breaking point. The 2018 elections were supposed to bring hope to our future hence people should not take them lightly. Now after the elections there is no hope and we cannot be sure where the future lie.
One thing I want to do is go to the state house and meet President Mnangagwa and tell him that he promised us jobs, a better life in 2019. We are in a new year and everyone has resolutions and goals. We want to realise that.
For the youths, it’s even worse because we have reached a breaking point where we care less about dying because we are dead already. If you look at the United Nations statistics on drug abuse, it’s very worrying.
I have a burden in my heart, I want to do this radical move and I know the consequences but I want to do this for my generation. I’m willing to sacrifice even my blood and I have to do it. It’s not about the money or any political agenda but it’s for the good of my generation.
Kafuramika added that he is prepared to go the route of Itai Dzamara who was abducted by suspected state security agents. Itai Dzamara was a staunch critic of former President Robert Mugabe who was seized in 2015 by unknown gunmen and has never been seen since.
