Zimbabwe Diaspora prepare to march whilst ZANU PF Decapitates itself

Zimbabwe Diaspora prepare to march whilst ZANU PF Decapitates itself

Zimbabweans in the diaspora are making final preparations to march to the Tanzanian Embassy today on the 25th of October 2019, in clear defiance of the ZANU PF ruling Regimes, proposed march against sanctions on the same day in Zimbabwe.  It seems there are those in ZANU PF who want the sanctions to stay and have, effectively thrown their leader under the bus.

Zimbabweans in the diaspora have planned to meet at 11am at the Zimbabwe Embassy at 429 The Strand, London WC2R 0JR.  From there they have planned to march through the Streets of London to the Tanzanian High commission.  The reason for the march and proposed peaceful protest is

(i)  To highlight the ongoing human rights abuses being perpetrated by ZANU PF and its proxies, against the people of Zimbabwe
(ii) To highlight the continued and accelerated corruption that prevails in the Zimbabwean State at Wholesale, Government and State levels
(iii) To alert the world of the inability of the Government to provide basic protection against home grown terrorists, thus resulting in a dearth of food security and healthcare needs, which are basic human rights
(iv) To combat the lies and deceptions that have been unashamedly spewed by the Junta’s media and publicity ministry on a daily basis, to the detriment of Zimbabwe
(v) To show that the removal of any sanctions which were placed on individuals and entities, would be a huge backward step, which would only sanitise the continued asset stripping human rights abuses and atrocities, being committed by the ruling Junta in Zimbabwe.

With the day being about Zimbabweans, regardless of their political affiliation and having, a strong emphasis on human rights, organisers expect a high turnout.  However, given the thinly veiled threats, which have been well publicised by the ruling Junta one can only wonder what will happen to those who want and propagate for the sanctions to stay, especially since the ruling junta, expects SADC heads to attend their proposed march against the sanctions.

Some ZANU Capitulation, throwing ED
Under the Bus 😱
Most recently, the ZAMBIAN leader, President Edgar Chagwa Lungu announced on his twitter page that the 25th  October 2019 is a Public Holiday in Zambia. This may be seen by most as a snub to the Zimbabwean Junta, who have now resorted to buying from Zambia what they used to export to Zambia.  Zimbabwe used to export so much food to Zambia, when it was a bread basket and proud, now Zimbabwe is a basket case literally on her knees, with the United Nations Food Program, Zambia and Tanzania just to name a few all exporting food to Zimbabwe.  Given that Botswana and Mozambique have just had their elections, we are waiting for an official comment.

The most recent example of the Brutality of the regime is what lead to the death of Tafadzwa Tamangani whilst in police custody, within two weeks of his initial arrest.  He was tortured, photographed after being tortured, the photo was released to the public, this did not make the state take any notice, his lawyers pleaded for him to be offered medical attention, which the police denied him, then his subsequent death in custody, is a clear lack of candour, empathy or care for the wellbeing of the most vulnerable by the Zimbabwean State junta and its proxies.

Then finally, there seems to be a capitulation by the ruling ZANU PF Junta media personnel that the Sanctions are not against Zimbabwe as a whole but are only against certain people and entities based in Zimbabwe.  On one of their twitter pages, they seem to capitulate and thus go against what the ZANU PF leader has always said.  There also seems to be an audio doing the rounds in Zimbabwean chatrooms, which has an allegation from a ZANU PF member saying that Mnangagwa expects to get 20 million so that food can be distributed in Zimbabwe.

Given all the above, the anger and disenfranchisement of the Zimbabwean people is pulpable, especially when in conversation and in light chat, that always turns to anger against the regime.  Zimbabweans in the Diaspora have refused to be mute, they have committed to marching and demonstrating against the abuses and for the keeping of the sanctions.  One now wonders whether more names need to be put on the sanctions list given the FT’s recent reports on looting in Zimbabwe.
