They are beating people here in Gweru in Mtapa,Mambo and Ascot.We have footage of all their crimes and we are ready to expose them once the internet is back online.This time tosvitsana kure

Yeah. Iwe Vladimir mwana wehure, you must also produce footage of MDC goons who attacked and murdered a police officer at Entumbane police post. All recordings of MDC-A terrorists erecting barricades, looting shops, threatening people, burning cars and torching fuel stations must be readily available.

From ED to IDI AMIN in one year. I am dissappointed

Idi Amin - 17 January 2019

Under Nelson, MDC has unsurprisingly morphed into a terrorist organization, a huge threat to national security and unity.

You can't go on the offensive and then retreat without achieving your goal. What was the purpose of this strike and has the objective been realized?

Very likely ZPF behind much of the mayhem and lootings since it would provide some booty for the perps whilst at the same time serve the administrations chief objective in damaging the MDC brand. The problem arises of course when this now undermines the whole' zim is open for business' mantra. What a shambles - no investors in their right mind will provide investment in a basket case administration who haven't a clue how to reverse the decline. This should come as no surprise though since their main aim was to self enrich at the expense of everyone else. Tragic.

Benson Bhobho , Zanu Pf Youth chairperson for ward 40 in Whitecliff arrested for burning a ZUPCO bus.Appeared in court already. It looks like the hard times are biting members of MDC as well as Zanu PF also. I thought Zanu PF members are excluded from paying high bus fares and also I thought their salaries have been increased by more than 150% and they are now getting paid in US$, but I was wrong.Everyone it seems is feeling the pinch except of course the army , police officers are paid well .Is it 500 or 600 bond notes .kkkkkk interesting times are coming.Nhaka muchadyana.

As for"Tinowaziwa" , your language alone shows how you were brought up and kuti amai vako chii. You have said it yourself. Language from the gutter .Ndiwe unenge uchitobata mari amai vari pabasa.kkkkk

Already as reported on Newsday, ZPF youths are prosecuted for torching a ZUPCO bus. Is this the MDC then?

What was the objective of this stay away. The main objective was to express our concern on the hardships we are facing on low wages whilst prices of everything are sky rockecting including transport costs as a result of the fuel increases. The noble idea was high jacked by thieves and hooligans who started looting and destroying properties as well as attacking other innocent people and attacking police officers. Now that noble cause is now treated as terrorism because of stupid people among us. Chamisa was right to call such people stupid. No investor will come to Zimbabwe with such destructive behaviour. Its you the youth who will continue suffering because no new companies will come for new business.

Chief Chasura - 17 January 2019

@Chief Chasura, does Idi and his military junta not know people are facing hardships and have no wages at all, let alone low wages? This they pretty are aware of, fuel queues are obvious even to a blind man, hence my question of what really was the objective(s) of the stayaway/ demo. Lives have been lost, some maimed and property destroyed yet the same junta is still there in power and clueless on turning around the fortunes of the people. Suffering will continue if not to greater proportions and the international community will not offer any help because things are going back to where they were prior to Monday 14th.
