    The people of Zimbabwe are now truly blessed with Mr. Perence Shiri being rewarded again for his heroic deeds in the Gukuruhundi. There is footage of a lady saying that the Fifth Brigade and its Commander used rape as a terrorising factor during the Gukuruhundi. President Emmerson has played his Trump Card? This is simply an extension of the Gukuruhundi? I mean – like making Hitler President of the AU? I wonder why Mr. Shiri was known as Black Jesus? Both Shirir and Mugabe have been truly fascinated in the notion that they were or are better than Jesus. Mugabe because he has died many times and Shiri because he called himself
    Black Jesus during the Gukuruhundi. This will be a golden era of politics in Zimbabwe and the Foreign Office will coming dashing in on a White Stallion to pay the bills for their Gukuruhundi Cabinet?

    Well here we were all hoping that we were going to change that useless old horse …

    But all we changed was its jockey…

    And now that old jockey is now being revered as some sort of winner…he has even been rewarded with a National Day and a very huge pension.

    But we all remember that in those painful 37 long years he never won a race…even when we were all cheering him on like blind fools…
