The day Zim­babwe em­bar­rassed Ta­ja­muka

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

ED­I­TOR — Calls by shad­owy MDC-T af­fil­i­ated ac­tivist group, Ta­ja­muka for the pro­gres­sive peo­ple of Zim­babwe to stay away from their usual ac­tiv­i­ties yes­ter­day were rightly ig­nored.

The over­am­bi­tious trou­ble­mak­ers had over­stated their rel­e­vance as­sum­ing that this coun­try is run through a sim­plis­tic hash­tag.

Even ma­li­ciously crafted mes­sages on so­cial me­dia could not stir peo­ple who chose to ig­nore the ab­surd so-called shut­down.

Busi­nesses and peo­ple were try­ing to re­coup their losses from the loot­ing and de­struc­tion in­sti­gated by these peo­ple with­out a pos­i­tive agenda for the coun­try.

As such, peo­ple had no time to an­swer to silly calls by mis­guided youths who are bent on us­ing the pub­lic to seek for­eign asy­lum, Mawarire-style.

The day went on as usual as peo­ple were not in­ter­ested in a coun­ter­pro­duc­tive stay-away.

Ku­dos to the se­cu­rity of­fi­cers who were also on high alert in case the rowdy youths de­cided to re­peat their es­capades of mad­ness in the Harare cen­tral busi­ness dis­trict.

Now they are left with egg on their face after pre­ma­turely pro­claim­ing that the shut­down would bring na­tional busi­ness to a stand­still. Han­nah Chis­ere, Via Email
