  1. The rule of law has never being allowed in our beloved country more so now than ever before.
    It should be noted that our pariah status in the world has more to do with us following the Communist state mentality namely our so called all weather friends China. As a communist Country it appears we are quietly following this path again. Communism is not dead and is slowly taking over and no one sees this threat. The number of politicians following this path around the world can be found on Wikipedia etc.
    It is an alarming fact this threat by the Communists is everywhere and the silent takeover has already begun. Africa with its corrupt leaders is open to anything and has always followed this path with China supporting liberation movements . This support must now be returned thus the onslaught by governments on the citizens who oppose them . This so called dealing with protests should show us all , a one party state is evident and China supports this knowing full well the players in their game will sell out the country thus undermining our liberation struggle. Aluta Continua. Long live Africa. Long live Zimbabwe.
