Since its inception, the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair has never overflowed. In 2019, it has. This can never be described as a bad omen even by the most imaginative enemy of Zimbabwe. Nobody window shops in a shop they detests. And, in the reality of consumption mechanisms and shop management, it is the huge number of walk-in clients who go out without buying anything than those who do the actual buying.

The Gukurahundi issue has been emotive ever since the disturbances led to deaths of former liberation war combatants and civilians in the Matabeleland and Midlands provinces. The previous ZANU PF-led Governments led by former President Robert Mugabe never seriously tackled the issue despite a lot of outstanding concerns by people in the affected regions.

There is an old adage that says fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.  This maxim rings true to most of our urban voters who are constantly casting their vote to a failed MDC party which has failed to deliver quality service, improve on existing infrastructure and provide adequate clean water and sanitation since it took over the urban councils  from ZANU PF in the year 2000.  What the urban voters fail to realise is that constantly voting for a failed party is tantamount to whipping a dead horse to perform beyond its ability.

Zimbabwe’s 2019 National Budget Statement, which was presented under the theme “Austerity for Prosperity,” is generally aimed at correcting the fiscal imbalance that is mainly responsible for high inflation, indebtedness and foreign currency challenges. A quick internet search on the matter revealed that austerity measures are reductions in Government spending, increases in tax revenues, or both normally with the view to correct the performance of an economy.

As the MDC elective congress draws near, there seems to be a sense of assurance among the Nelson Chamisa camp with all but one province still to nominate him to stand uncontested as the party’s President. This will effectively put to bed the current Vice President Elias Mudzuri and Secretary General, Douglas Mwonzora’s ambitions to succeed the late Morgan Tsvangirai as the party’s president.

Heartless and selfish Zimbabwean businesspersons are dwelling much on profiteering, robbing their fellow citizens’ hard earned cash in pursuit of super profits. Whilst some are economic saboteurs who are hiking prices to frustrate efforts by Government for their own nefarious agendas.

In the morning of the eve of the celebration of our 39th Independence anniversary last week, the MDC leader, Nelson Chamisa torched a storm on the social media when he insinuated that the Zimbabwe bird was an item of idolatry. This demonstrated a number of things about him as an individual and a political player in Zimbabwe.

The negative reactions by MDC leadership to news that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) had reached an agreement with the Zimbabwean Government on the implementation of critical policies and reforms designed to facilitate the Southern African country’s re-engagement with the international community, must have served to enlighten the populace that the opposition party thrives on the suffering of citizens and is prepared to do whatever it takes to perpetuate the suffering as a way to achieve its nefarious agenda of regime change.

Independence Day in Zimbabwe is a day that every Zimbabwean young or old ought to respect and commemorate. Thanks to the liberation struggle every Zimbabwean knows what it means to be independent. Independent is when one is free to do whatever he or she pleases wherever he or she is.
