(TALKZIMBABWE) Work together for a prosperous Zimbabwe

DEAR EDITOR–The attempt on the part of the Western governments to construct a powerful opposition in Zimbabwe and install a government of their choice is proving to be an impossible task.

In order to be effective, such a move requires grass roots support. But every grass roots movement necessarily opposes the Western governments who are responsible, in large part, for the social misery in Zimbabwe—not just because of mismanagement and corruption by some elements in Zanu PF, but also because of the Western inspired economic programmes which has transformed all Africa into a poor house.

In light of the impotence of the opposition, attention is being directed more and more to possible props inside the Zanu PF government itself. There, the number of Zanu PF elements who are ready to work with the opposition and the West is increasing.

Simba Makoni was the forerunner to all this.

Others—above all in the so-called “moderate or reformist wing” of Zanu PF—are maintaining a low profile, hoping this will transform themselves. This is ill-advised and irresponsible.

All Zimbabweans need to recognize that these underground tactics will not do well for our country. We should all work together for the common good and that starts with being open about our intentions and focussing on developing our nation.
