Those who attended or listened to the speeches delivered during Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) May Day commemorations in Dzivaresekwa, Harare, last week will testify of how the labour body’s leadership is itching to stage protests against Government. The same also goes for the MDC leader, Nelson Chamisa who used the event not to express solidarity with the workers as expected but to berate President Emmerson Mnangagwa instead of spelling out his own party’s policies to the workers.

Every year the 3rd of May is reserved to celebrate the self-proclaimed 4th Estate, that is the Media. The day has come to be known as World Press Freedom Day and it was set aside to respect and uphold the right to freedom of expression as enshrined under Article 19 of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Lack of patriotism and political polarization are the leading factors hampering progress and development in the country. Sanctions may have a contributory factor to our challenges but the fact that Zimbabwe is divided more than before because of political contestations has had a huge bearing on perpetuating the suffering of the masses.

The 5-day long 60th edition of the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF) which took place in Bulawayo, the country’s second largest city from 23- 27 April 2019 was a major success with various local and international exhibitors showcasing their products and services to the multitudes of people who thronged the historic exhibition arena.

When the US Democrat Presidential candidate, Hilary Clinton lost the election in 2016 to Donald Trump she did not lose heart, but she put the United States national interests first and moved on. As an American at heart she realised that her country comes first. US General Douglas   MacArthur in his 1962 famous speech said in his line of duty his priorities were “duty, honour and country.”

Affirmative action by our Government has seen Zimbabwean women rising against all odds. Not so long ago women lived in a patriarchal society where they were never recognised in leadership roles. This has seen women being overlooked in developmental issues that concerned our nation. Many thanks to our Government for realizing the worth of women.

 A few days before the violent and ruinous protests of 14 to 16 January this year in the main cities of Harare, Bulawayo and Mutare, the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) president, Peter Mutasa and the leader of the shadowy protest group, #ThisFlag  Evan Mawarire became the faces of the demonstrations’ organisers. This is because they recorded and distributed a video message in which they encouraged Zimbabweans to participate in protests which were couched as a stay away.

For a considerable period now I have been going around some of the emerging residential suburbs in and around Harare. My aim was to have an assessment of the progress, or seriousness therein of the drive towards Agenda 2030 with regards to infrastructural development.
