Emmerson Mnangagwa is a man living on borrowed time!
Take the ravaging Corona pandemic aside, surely Mnangagwa would have been facing a massive and serious civil unrest by now. An opportunist of proportions, Mnangagwa saw a window of opportunity in the deadly Corona pandemic and a leeway to elongate his illegitimate stay at Munhumutapa offices.
While the idea of a lockdown in face of the deadly Corona pandemic is not a bad idea altogether, it is crystal clear that the biggest beneficiary thus far is Emmerson Mnangagwa and not the hungry and angry masses who survive from hand to mouth.
Normally the lockdown period is supposed to reduce deleterious effects of the pandemic, but alas in our case it is the opposite.
This is largely because the cartels run government deliberately lacks will to tackle the pandemic.
Talk of testing kits or mere personal protective equipment like masks, Mnangagwa’s regime has dismally failed to provide the basics to combat the spread of the disease. Of course ZANU PF apologists will be quick to point to Mnangagwa’s unilateral declaration of 21 days lockdown as a control measure but we all know what serious countries world over are doing to ensure that lockdown serve purpose.
Closer home, the South African government makes sure that all its citizenry is well catered for as far as basic human rights fundamentals like food, clean water and access to personal protective clothing is concerned.
Back home, besides untold harassment of poverty stricken masses by the uniformed forces, Mnangagwa’s military dictatorship has virtually done nothing to save and serve the people.
Clearly there is no connection whatsoever between the governors and the governed.
A clear indication that there is lack of social contract between the rulers and the ruled!
Overtly there is no passion for the people by those who stole the mandate from the people.
To think these are the very same people who dished out millions of bandanas, t-shirts, scarfs and zambias during the election season but now fail to provide masks is utterly disgusting! Outside Covid-19, people are groaning and dying of starvation in this lockdown period.
Citizens have been completely shut out from their only source of livelihood – vending yet this heartless regime offers no alternative for survival.
All we have seen is parasitic ZANU PF district chairpersons capitalizing on people’s misery by creating databases that will be selectively used to distribute aid on partisan lines.
To divert us from our excruciating man made suffering, Mnangagwa goes on to set a very disinteresting Komichi-Khupe Supreme Court drama.
The level of rot and stinking poverty in the ghettos and countryside tells a harrowing story of a people without a government!
Citizens are hungry and angry because of the economic rot presided over by Mnangagwa.
Mnangagwa is treading dangerously on a political cliff edge and for now only lockdown can save him.
Winter might be too cold for Mnangagwa.
Surely we cannot go on like this!
We are the people, we are the power!
