    The “Cancel-Culture” idea was born in Zim.  When evidence of violence and corruption is exposed, rather than investigate and correct, simply arrest and remand, or disappear, those responsible for publicizing the truth.  But, there are those who refuse to be silenced, even knowing the real dangers they face from ZANUPF’s original and extreme version of “Cancel-Culture”.  Those are the heroes….. and they deserve recognization and praise for their extraordinary courage.
