I get annoyed. I don’t mean to go all Muckracker on y’all, but sometimes I get really annoyed.
I get annoyed when I read The Herald, not because of the shoddy Engrish, or the hack-job editing. No. It’s the stories themselves that piss me off.
Like the tale of the day … Outrage over Tsvangirai boycott. Well.
Zimbabweans yesterday roundly condemned MDC-T leader Mr Morgan Tsvangirai’s decision to boycott a Sadc Troika meeting…
Misleading, right off the bat. “Zimbabweans”, is it? I count four Zimbabweans quoted in the article roundly condemning MT. Two are fanatical Mugabe mouthpieces, whilst the other two “man-on-the-street” quotes may as well be blind quotes.
If the “Herald Reporter” (may as well read Office of the President) had been bothered to actually survey across the wide spectrum of Zimbabweans, I think he’d have been hard-pressed to find anyone as “disappointed and disillusioned” as Anna Kahari.
They are sowing seeds of chaos and mayhem and the people of Zimbabwe will hold Tsvangirai liable.
No ma’am. With all due respect, we know who to hold liable for any chaos or mayhem. Trust me, we won’t be very forgiving of their apologists either. Shameless.
Zanu-PF accused MDC-T of “waffling” and trying to hide behind the issue of a passport in a bid to derail the inter-party talks.
I like that. The issue of a passport. Why has it become an issue in the first place? Surely SOMEONE in The Party realises that MT’s freedom of movement is being restricted. Surely the “constitution” has been read by at least SOME of the Party Functionaries. Surely? Issue?
And yes, Bright Matonga is always good for a laugh. Even though I may be related to the poor delusional bugger.
There is no one who is bigger than the wishes of the people of Zimbabwe.
What we want to make very clear as Zanu-PF and Government is that no one will ever hold this country to ransom, we do not care who they are.
Well said, hama. Though it makes me wonder, what with all the hoarding and shit going on in Harare, someone must have a really big stash of the good stuff.
Pass the drugs, guys. Sharing is caring.
P.S. Almost in the same breath, we also get stories about Zim getting US$500m from the Global Fund, over 700,000 people being fed by World Vision (alone), and Harare firefighters striking over food.
Let’s blame it all on Tsvangirai and his illegal sanctions, eh? Oh.
