Peo­ple should be wary of po­lit­i­cal con­men

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

EDI­TOR — A re­cent video by pseudo-ac­tivist Ru­faro Kaseke ask­ing Zim­bab­weans to do­nate money to fund their crim­i­nal ac­tiv­i­ties dis­guised as demo­cratic protests should be con­demned in the strong­est sense.

In the video, the dread­locked failed film­maker makes an ap­peal to Zim­bab­weans across the globe to send money to a cer­tain Eco­cash num­ber to fi­nance their regime change agenda.

With the UK and other regime change spon­sors turn­ing their back on these so-called pres­sure groups, they are look­ing for other sources of in­come and they are tar­get­ing or­di­nary ci­ti­zens.

Their ill-fated fundrais­ing ini­tia­tive ti­tled, Zim­babwe Rise Up Tour has since run out of steam as front­man Evan Mawarire was de­nied a Visa into the United King­dom and artistes billed to per­form have been pulling out one af­ter the other.

Now the drive to milk ci­ti­zens from the Zim­bab­wean end be­ing led by ques­tion­able ven­dor cap­tain, Stern Zvor­wadza is un­der­way.

An Eco­cash num­ber will be sent to the gullible to post money but I am sure most Zim­bab­weans are now aware of this man’s true mo­tives. His ap­peals are likely to fall on deaf ears.

The regime change agents were re­cently left lick­ing their wounds af­ter their plans to de­rail the in­tro­duc­tion of bond notes failed.

The pri­vate me­dia went into cel­e­bra­tion say­ing the firm con­tracted to print the bond notes had lis­tened to calls from the mal­con­tents and re­fused to print them.

How­ever, the mas­sive me­dia cam­paign by the Re­serve Bank of Zim­babwe in prepa­ra­tion for the bond note shows that in the end the right idea pre­vailed.

It is wor­ry­ing that we have ci­ti­zens who want to push against the tide so that the sit­u­a­tion in the coun­try does not change be­cause if it does, they will not have any lever­age to fleece peo­ple of their money in the name of “demo­cratic ac­tiv­ity”.

These clowns must not be en­ter­tained. H Tafirenyika, Via email
