Togarepi Says Civil Servants Have Been Paid By 3rd Hand To Push For Regime Change

ZANU PF secretary for youth affairs Pupurai Togarepi has accused civil servants – teachers, doctors and nurses – of being used by a third hand to sabotage President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s leadership.

Togarepi supported the government’s decision to fire hundreds of doctors who had been on strike for over two months, claiming that ethical questions justify restricting individual rights. He said:

Teachers, doctors and nurses are being ensnared and entrapped with a few pieces of dirty money to push for regime change through embarking on strikes that will presumably lead to the collapse of Government and result in the deaths of people.

… The Government was thus within its rights to crack the whip and in accordance with the law, fire a few miscreants who are smuggling political agendas into purely labour issues.

Civil servants staged a demonstration in Harare last week, demanding their salaries to be indexed to the prevailing interbank market rates.

In the same week, the government fired more than 200 doctors who did not report for duty since September 3. The doctors claimed that they were financially incapacitated.

  1. Togarepi do you honestly believe that the doctors, teachers and civil servants are unable to think for themselves; that they are incapable of assessing for themselves whether or not they are financially constrained; that their action has been instigated by a “third hand” (heard this one before); that they are being paid to go on strike. And how do you suppose that they are receiving this money? Being paid into their bank accounts? That they are receiving cash (what’s that?) Methinks that it is you who has been hoodwinked by the party into believing that all is hunkydory in Zimbabwe. Wake up and smell the coffee. Actually you won’t – coffee is too expensive now!
