Pseudo ac­tivists left in the cold

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

ED­I­TOR — In a case of op­po­nents turn­ing against each other, the Amer­i­can Em­bassy after notic­ing that Evan Mawarire and Pat­son Dza­mara are noth­ing but noisy mas­quer­ades, has turned against them.

While the duo is busy at­tempt­ing to paint Zim­babwe as burn­ing, the Amer­i­can Am­bas­sador was show­er­ing praises on Zim­babwe de­scrib­ing it as a safe haven for thou­sands of refugees. How is that for irony?

Am­bas­sador Harry K Thomas and his coun­ter­parts must have re­alised that they were sold a dummy by regime change clowns who just wanted a gate­way to go to Amer­ica.

Now the West has seen that the idea of vi­o­lent protests has failed to bear fruit in their at­tempts to un­seat a con­sti­tu­tion­ally elected gov­ern­ment and has re­sorted to us­ing puppet African lead­ers to try and spew anti-Zim­babwe rhetoric.

Ian Khama has be­come the lat­est re­cruit used by the third force and di­vi­sive el­e­ments to try and give in­ac­cu­rate in­sight on Zim­babwe.

What does he know? He is a po­lit­i­cal novice who is jeal­ous of the in­flu­ence that Pres­i­dent Mu­gabe has on the con­ti­nent and be­yond.

His at­tempts to act as if he has a bet­ter mind than Zim­bab­weans should be con­demned, it is undiplo­matic to throw a salvo at a sit­ting Pres­i­dent.

The way he tries to med­dle in other peo­ple’s af­fairs shows traces of Bri­tish DNA in his blood. The mes­sage has to be clear to him that we are a sovereign na­tion, he can take his warped coun­sel else­where.

Now is the time for Zim­bab­wean cit­i­zens to re­main vig­i­lant against im­pa­tient power hun­gry char­ac­ters who want to de­rail the coun­try in its de­vel­op­ment ef­fort.

We have to ask our­selves why Western coun­tries are so in­ter­ested in what hap­pens in our coun­try. Why can’t they take their con­cerns and cour­tesy to Ok­la­homa where peo­ple are protest­ing against the sys­tem.

Like the Pres­i­dent said re­cently, they do not like the fact that we have re­sources they can­not con­trol.

We have to be vig­i­lant against for­eign in­flu­ences, for our chil­dren and com­ing gen­er­a­tions. He­bert Jem­bere
