HARARE - For the umpteenth time, we would like to call on the warring Zanu PF regime to stop these useless catfights and try to salvage the economy which is on its knees.
It is mind boggling that officials in the governing Zanu PF party are busy at each other’s throats when the economy is in such a mess.
Zimbabwe has indeed been reduced to a circus by President Robert Mugabe’s Zanu PF at a time millions of people are facing starvation due to a combination of drought and mismanagement of the country.
Zimbabweans now get daily doses of fights between Generation 40 (G40) and Team Lacoste in this succession charade but at the expense of the nation.
It is now nauseating especially if you juxtapose these succession and factional wars and the hard reality on the ground where the majority of people need food aid while many have since fled to foreign lands where they are treated like serfs.
Can officials in Zanu PF sober up, grow up and for once start to work for the good of the women in rural areas who we now know are surviving on wild fruits.
It is saddening to note that these people in their expensive suits and posh vehicles seem to be oblivious to the suffering that people are enduring daily.
Just last week Mugabe addressed a handful of his Zanu PF followers in Mashonaland Central and instead of focussing his energy on bread and butter matters, he spoke about the factional wars in his party — something that certainly does not inspire hope to those whose crops have wilted because of adverse weather conditions.
This is time for Zanu PF to look in the mirror and ask if they have achieved what they promised the electorate some three years ago.
Where are the 2 million jobs? Where are the new companies? These are the vital issues that Mugabe and his hangers-on should address instead of giving us an overdose of their succession rubbish.
As for now, the country is sliding back to the pre-2008 era and the only difference now is people are using foreign currency.
Will our politicians ever work for the good of the country or maybe they just enjoy life on the gravy train for self-aggrandisement?
We pray that our rulers are not focused on taking Zimbabwe to the grave for history will indeed judge them harshly since they have shown no iota of remorse in their plundering of the country’s resources.
Can anyone in Zanu PF claim that Zimbabwe is a jewel of Africa as postulated by the late former Tanzanian leader Mwalimu Julius Nyerere?
Please spare us the drama of mudslinging and focus on the deliverables rather than these succession fables.
