Only ‘stupids’ cel­e­brate sanc­tions

The Sunday Mail (Zimbabwe) - - COMMENT -

EDI­TOR — The past week has seen the op­po­si­tion me­dia go­ing into over­drive as they cel­e­brate that some peo­ple in the Amer­i­can po­lit­i­cal es­tab­lish­ment want sanc­tions on Zim­babwe to re­main in force.

One has to won­der which coun­try they are liv­ing in.

How do they ben­e­fit from the coun­try not ac­cess­ing money and sup­port from in­ter­na­tional lenders like the IMF and the World?

In­stead of high­light­ing what busi­nessper­sons like Joe Mu­tizwa and Strive Masiyiwa are say­ing about how sanc­tions are killing the econ­omy, they would rather lean on po­lit­i­cal state­ments as if they eat pol­i­tics.

I think I will have to agree with Nel­son Chamisa here: those peo­ple who sup­port his silly anti-de­vel­op­ment ideas, such as en­gag­ing in vi­o­lence and “kuz­vidira jecha” are “stupid”.

There is no other way to de­scribe such peo­ple.

I shud­der to think what kind of chil­dren they are rais­ing if they are such stupid cus­to­di­ans of their own na­tion in their var­i­ous spheres.

Not Stupid, Harare
