Strictly speaking, good people , in normal circumstances we should be screaming blue murder at President Robert Mugabe. He drove a vibrant agriculture and manufacturing based economy to the ground.
A man who presides over a kaput economy should not call us names. But, alas, I have observed that some of us hapa Mukuru Kwa Zuckerberg are applauding Mr Mugabe. That Mr Mugabe is calling us thieves and that we are saying he is right, says tuko mahututi.
Now who will speak for us? I would have, but I am reminded that I don’t play in the league of presidents, especially wa mataifa za kigeni on issues between them and Nairobi. Second, when Mr Mugabe insults us he, in fact, insults our President.
I was going to tear into him all the same when I read the latest about TV, pens and condoms and the Devolution ministry, off shore accounts hidden from the Controller of Budget, inflated SGR costs, the thievery at the Youth Fund and a drip, drip recap of a government mired in robbery and theft.
The gangsters are in and of government. It took Mr Mugabe more than a decade to ruin his county’s economy; the gangsters in ours want to beat that record by a large score and quickly.
I am an incurable optimist, but, for once, am beaten.
Before our President answers Mr Mugabe, he must address us for among us are Mr Mugabe’s newfound supporters because of what many see us a deteriorating economic situation and grand corruption at home.
