    It took ZANU PF a very, very long time to makes these window dressing changes…

    Were their bosses too busy scrambling to steal our diamonds?…or is it simply a case of Defence Minister Sydney Sekeramayi distancing himself from Mugabe, while at the same time sucking up to his new military bosses?

    We now have an opportunity to demand real changes that will really, but really, change our miserable lives under ZANU PF rule…

    We need changes at ZESA as well too much corruption there. Surely giving Wicknell five million dollars while denying workers an agreed CBA increament and putting some Ministers on ZESA payroll to buy their silence.
