Tajamuka cranks up pressure on Mugabe

HARARE - Youth movement #Tajamuka/Sesjikile is ratcheting up pressure on President Robert Mugabe.

The social media movement said after a stakeholders meeting in Harare this week that it will stand by its earlier resolution to push Mugabe to step down or outline clear timelines by August 31.

“Tajamuka/Sesjikile will support all pro-democracy actions by citizens and groups that resonate with the campaign’s goals and objectives,” the group said in a statement.

“Failure of which #Tajamuka will take the fight to the next level with effect from the 1st of September 2016.”

The group said they would soon unroll mass protests to force the government to implement much needed reforms.

“Tajamuka/Sesjikile will step up community actions through massive mobilisation and education from all corners of Zimbabwe.”

The youth group also said they are demanding a number of issues, including the 2, 2 million new jobs as espoused in the ruling party’s 2013 election manifesto, as well as answers following Mugabe’s recent claim that $15 billion had been stolen from the Chiadzwa diamond mining fields.

“… our 10 guiding principles of the campaign as follows: No to bond notes, we want our 2, 2 million jobs, the missing $15 billion must be returned, an end to corruption, cash crisis must be resolved urgently.

“Itai Dzamara must be returned to his family and an end to forced disappearances, illegal arrests and detention and state-sponsored violence. Social services delivery must improve, no to National Pledge, evolution of power now, we want the missing $10 million Youth Fund.”

Pamberi Pamberi, we are in support as citizens of Zimbabwe. We are tired of being bullied by this shyless government. They now send the police to steal money from citizens and what happens the policemen are getting rich too - corruption. MUGABE MUST GO NOW. We cant keep on suffering because of these old moroons, who no longer have new ideas to run this country for the betterment of the people. This is not a kingdom, Mugabe must know that.
