The test of courage and commitment is not when there is no danger or uncertainty; but when one puts his life on the line against terrible odds and there is absolutely no certainty of victory! We have been down this path and are hardened by the many lashes of history. We shall be home, waiting when New Zimbabwe comes.

Grace Mugabe and Sarah Mahoka: The tale of two typists who have gone too far
Grace Mugabe: Typist 1
Sarah Mahoka: Typist 2
It now appears certain that factionalism is ripping Zanu PF
apart and that things might turn ugly if this problem persists. Now, my main
concern is that factionalism in Zanu PF has not only become an impediment to
our country's progress, be it, economically, socially and politically, but it
has also become menace and a serious concern for our national security.
Here, I am arguing that Mugabe's divide and rule tactics,
which he has used over the past 36 years will, if the situation is not handled
well, create despondency and necessitate the breeding of malcontents within
Mugabe's securocrats and liberation war veterans.
Mugabe's wife, Grace, recently made utterances, which can
only be interpreted as an attempt to demean and to dismiss war veterans as
undeserving and a spent force was unwarranted. Saviour Kasukuwere, Grace and
Mugabe's blue eyed boy has, in the past, described war veterans as drunkards in
another statement, which was meant to cheapen war veterans including the likes
of Augustine Chihuri, Constantine Chiwenga, Perence Shiri, just to mentioned a
Compatriots, considering that Grace appears to be vying for
presidency, is this not a recipe for a civil war considering that war veterans
have, in the past, vowed that they will never salute anyone without liberation
war credentials. Ok then, if not by waging a war how are they going to stop
In Victoria Falls, Mugabe warned services chiefs
against delving into politics, well only when it comes to Zanu PF and the First
Family. Is it because he received intelligence warning him about
securocrats' possible backing of "Team La Coste" President Emmerson
Mnangagwa? Is Mugabe not pushing securocrats and war veterans too far this time
considering that he has allowed his two typists Grace and Sarah Mahoka to trample
mercilessly on war veterans?
Consider Mahoka calling a whole VP Mnangagwa a duck, Grace
undressing Joyce Mujuru and Didymus Mutasa. Compatriots, I mean Mnangagwa and
Didymus Mutasa were once our nation's spy supremos and now they are being
trampled on, just like that, by typists. That alone, could be a recipe for grooming
malcontents within Mugabe's securocrats and war veterans, that is if we still
have genuine war veterans.
Fellow countrymen, given the current succession race, don't
you think that, one way or another, our national security is compromised and
under serious threat? Say if Mnangagwa, Mutasa, Dabengwa decide that they have
had enough of rubbish from Mugabe, surely, we will have another Banyamulenge in
I know some will argue that in the past Mugabe has
successfully purged CIO Margaret Dongo, CIO Supremo Dumiso Dabengwa, the late
Edgar Tekere and others who met unexplained deaths, without any consequences, but
for how long?
God forbid, if Mugabe was to go today, will Saviour
Kasukuwere, Jonathan Moyo, Sarah Mahoka and Patrick Zhuwao protect Grace Mugabe
and her empire? Will Joyce Mujuru continue to live as muroyi veDotito? and will
the crocodile continue to live as a lizard or a lame duck?
