Appointing a hyena to be the midwife to a goat - Zimbabwe Situation

Appointing a hyena to be the midwife to a goat

via Appointing a hyena to be the midwife to a goat – Nehanda Radio Feb 27, 2014 By Wilbert Mukori

I have never seen the need for me to hide behind a name like Chimbwido, Baba Jukwa or a myriad of other phoney names , I have always used my full name because I have no reason to hide my identity. I have never done anything wrong.

However, I do know that there are murderous thugs who will beat rape or/and murder innocent people to silence them or to instil fear in the rest of the population for selfish political gain. Still, I decided to use my full name regardless not out of foolhardy stubbornness but because I know appeasing bullies, thugs and tyrants is futile.

Zimbabweans took the collective decision to give up their basic right to have a meaningful say in the running of the country with their first vote in 1980. They voted for Zanu PF to end the war because they know if Mugabe did not win the civil war would continue.

“Jojo siya zvenyika. Jojo angazofa!” (Jojo leave politics or you will die!) so goes Thomas Mapfumo’s popular hit at the time. He was putting into music the sentiments that were upper most in the nation’s minds. Sentiments drilled into the nation during the Zanla Pungwe (all night vigils) people forced to attend during the civil war. When you are looking up the business end of an AK47 rifle it is foolhardy to argue!

And yet, even in the face of all the beatings rapes and murders still was sheer folly for the people to have given up their basic right to a meaningful vote and say in the governance of the country for the simple reason that was their only way to stop the beatings, rapes, murders, mismanagement, corruption and looting.

Mugabe and his Zanu PF thugs were no more than the hyena demanding that it should be appointed the midwife or there will be no peace! Mugabe and Zanu PF threatened that there would be no peace, economic prosperity, etc. unless Zanu PF ruled.

Zimbabwe is a de facto one-party dictatorship in which the people have been denied their right to held those in power to account, the ultimate expression of that being the right to remove them from office. All Mugabe and his cronies wanted was absolute power to do as they please.

Tyrants and dictators do not care about peace, economic prosperity, no more than the hyena care about the mother and the new born! All the hyena is after is an ease meal; since when have undertakers made good midwife!

Giving up our democratic rights and freedoms to appeasing Mugabe and Zanu PF did not bring the peace or economic prosperity but the exact opposite it allowed the tyrant to use the nation’s wealth to bribe his wasteful supporters.

Mismanagement, corruption and looting have been allowed to grow and grow destroying everything of value and driving millions of our people into adjust poverty. And to silence the regime’s critics, opponents and the public at large the regime has used brute force; beating raping and murdering innocent people for selfish political gain.

The gave up their freedoms and rights to avoid the beatings rapes and murders only to have all these things and many more beside visited onto them a thousand fold! Of course it is folly to seek to appease a dictator by giving up one’s right to hold the tyrant to account. I will never succumb to such foolishness!

If I am going to be killed then I want to look the murderer straight in the eye and not bury my head in the sand! I want the would-be murderer to know I have made it my whole lifetime’s work to seek them out and to held them to account for the blood on their hands.

If I die; the murderer(s) must know that there hundreds of thousands others like me who are just as determined to seek them out, that this is not over until they are punished and justice rule the land!

If you and your fellow Zanu PF henchmen are thinking of beating me up or murdering me then you better do so straight away because time is not on your side. The Zanu PF dictatorship is imploding.

Zanu PF is not a party with ideology, principle or anything; it is a party of ruffians and morons with one and one thing in common – insatiable appetite for power and wealth.

For the last three decades Mugabe has increased the size of the civil service, parastatals and super numeral ministries such as Ministry of State for Liaising on Psychomotor Activities in Education – no one knows what Minister Josiah Hungwe is supposed to do all day let alone the next five years, to gratify his supporters’ need to be called “Chef”.

The down side was this has resulted in criminal waste of resources needed to support this blotted government, army, etc. Most of these political appointments have proven to be incompetent and worse, corrupt!

34 years of gross mismanagement and rampant corruption has bankrupted Zimbabwe causing unimaginable hardships to the millions of ordinary Zimbabweans but also to Mugabe himself. There are no cushy jobs to give away and the money to finance all the dodgy schemes from which the ruling elite have benefited in the past has dried up. This is happened at the worst time for these Zanu PF spoilt brats!

Mugabe is telling his party ruffians and morons, most of who have never done an honest day’s work these last 34 years they have to join the nation’s 80% unemployed and sink or swim. This is like being thrown out of the house just hours before night fall and a savage storm breaks!

The ruffians and morons are already fighting each other and as the reality of a grim future ahead begin to dawn on them the fight will intensify in its savagery. It is the fight to the death!

As I said, Zanu PF is imploding and what the nation has to be careful about is that the tyrant and his gang of ruffians do not drag the nation over the edge with them! All those Zanu PF thugs who survive the implosion will be hunted down and held to account for the blood on their hands! It is not over until the fat lady sings, until justice rules the roost!

    The adage “YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW” is what we inherited. The fear factor has worked well for Zanu and continues today. Unfortunately the peasants are still paralysed by Zanus war brainwashing and as such hypnotised to this comotose state whenever they here the chicken speak or when they see his scraggy mug. This is where we need to inform our people more or else things simply wont change. A huge de-brainwashing campaign must be instigated to begin to empower our people again or nothing will happen to remove Zanu and its criminals.

    I think ZPF believes that if they can’t have Zimbabwe then no one can and will take it over the edge as they go.

      Zanu PF is now sinking in the sewer lake created by the economic collapse after 34 years of economic mismanagement and corruption. The fear now is Mugabe and Zanu PF will now hang on to power and drag the whole nation into the abyss with them!

      It is actually not a belief, they are the main shareholders of the Zimbabwe Ltd trading as Zanupf.

      History has the habit of repeating itself my friend. Zimbabweans had a chance to create a just and democratic system of government in 1980 when the country attained its independence, that did not happen. We ended up with this corrupt and tyrannical Zanu PF regime.

      In 2008 and throughout the GNU years the country had many, many chances to end the Zanu PF dictatorship but, sadly, all those chances were wasted. Because of his breath-taking incompetence Tsvangirai failed to implement not even one democratic reform.

      Unless the people of Zimbabwe take time out to understand why we are where in this political and economic mess we are in today we can have our Arab Spring but will only replace one tyrant with an incompetent idiot or worse! We have to aim higher than that!

    Shona gukurahundis, Mthwakazi’s biggest prize will be Bona, Chatunga and Robert jnr. No hiding place Shona gukurahundis.

    We want to see whether as young as they are, it will be possible to provide state security to them for ever, until they are 90 years old like their father. We will get them to pay for the sins of their father – revenge!!

      I see Mthwakazi you are now directing your anger to the right target. To believe that all Shonas are Gukurahundi and that all shonas hate ndebele is being very mistaken indeed. What we should all understand is that the ZPF leadership is really very ruthless. Imagine trying to tell a Mafia member that their ways are wrong. Its the same from the Godfather Bob himself all the way down to the foot soldiers who we are amongst us (some of them dont even know that they have been brainwashed) who chant the “greatness” of Zanu principles everyday using intelligent sounding conspiracy theories. Bob and the Zanu leadership (and there is a good number of Ndebeles, Kalangas, Tsongas etc in there) is our problem no matter how much we may want to rationalize the irrational. Its not a ndebele shona thing. Its a Zanu thing.

    Mthtwakazi my brother you may be bitter about gukurahundi i understand but dont point finger at the shona tribe because that way we wont win the war againist zanu Do you know shona people were also killed in gukurahundi,The truth will never be known until zanu is out of power,By the way Tsvangirai had pledged to compensate gukurahundi victms ,But zanu made sure he did not win what a shame.

      How can Tsvangirai, a copycat gukurahundi Mugabe tribalist compensate victims of gukurahundi?

      That is a lie, its just electioneering. In his book, he called Mthwakazi people termites. Political leaders from our region are regionalists, tribalists and village politicians according to him. Only Shona politicians are nationalist in his book.

      He speaks Shona to Mthwakazi people and has no respect for our languages which he has never even tried to utter a single word, since he was born. Gukurahundi Mugabe is even better – he throws around a few words here and there.

      Winning your war against Mugabe is your problem, not mine. That is not a priority to me. I have never voted for ZANU PF or Mugabe ever since I was born and have never been a member of his satanic party. I am therefore not responsible for him being in power today.

      Shona gukurahundis are Shonas who subscribe to the gukurahundi idealogy of tribalism, racism, violence and grabbing everything without working and sweating for it. These are just the same as the Mthwakazi gukurahundis like Jabulani Sibanda.

      It has nothing to do with the general Shona or Ndebele communities.

    Optimism of the writer about ZANU imploding should remain guarded. While that was true of the country in 2008, and while the economy is still in the doldrums, things look different on the ground, at least in Harare. I suspect that this is largely because many people are retaining 100% of their income and not paying taxes. Civil unrest is not likely. Meanwhile, politically, there are one or two ZANU aspirants looking to taking over after Mugabe and while things may become nasty, the real power behind the regime is fairly united. It only remains to be seem if the men in uniform and the ones in dark glasses will manage to impose their candidate or if they will accept the ruling of congress…in other words probably horse trading, not implosion.
