“It Is Better To Be Poor & Alive” – ZANU PF MP Dissuades Citizens From MDC’s 16 August Demo

ZANU PF legislator for Chivi South, Killer Zivhu, has said that those wishing for the arrival of the 16th of August should be prepared for disillusionment since the protests scheduled for the day will never bring solutions to the country’s issues.

His remarks come when the opposition MDC has announced that it will have a “massive and peaceful” demonstration on the 16th of August over the scarcity of fuel, the soaring inflation, power deficit, paltry workers’ salaries, and severe starvation among other issues.

Posting on microblogging site, Twitter, Zivhu said:

16 August iyi yamunochemera iyi muchazodemba pamberi apo. Zimbabwe doesn’t need street action only dialogue can save us .why kuda kuparadza zvishoma zvatinazvo .its better kutambura uri mupenyu, let’s talk as a nation zvinopera .I beg u to think of yo family or yo dreams first.

Loosely translated, Zivhu’s post read:

You will soon regret ever wishing for the arrival of 16 August. Zimbabwe does not need street action, only dialogue can save us. Why do you want to destroy the little we have? It is better to be poor and alive, let’s talk as a nation, all issues will come to an end. I beg you to think of your family or your dreams first.

Others, however, disagree with Zivhu noting that mass show of discontent is necessary for dialogue to happen. They also argue that it is not better to be poor and alive.

    1. l personally support the sentement from Mr Zivhu,dialogue is the only way,to be be radical at the moment would not help anyone at all costs.People need to sit down and find one another so that the challenges we are facing as a nation can be resolved amicably.It might not be of an importance to do name calling or throw big words and vocabulary,what is needed is collective thinking,collective action.Zimbabweans lets do critique analysis of our situation,our country problems needs us to be really sober,we still have got an opportunity to build our country together as a people.Hopefully we all would harness the same opportunity to build it together

  1. peace peace we want peace in the country kuuraisa vanhu kwete this tym hatidi pose apa pasina kuitwa
