'Cannot separate democracy and discipline' says Moyo - have neither and no common sense to see it

'Cannot separate democracy and discipline' says Moyo - have neither and no common sense to see it

Zanu-PF leaders are once again up in arms blaming business operators for the country's worsening economic situations as shown by the increasing prices of goods and services - if they can be found given the shortages.

"This is a very temporary phenomenon, what we are going through and sometimes also they say in a democracy there must be discipline," Foreign Minister, Sibusiso Moyo said.

"We cannot separate democracy and discipline. If you lack discipline, then what it means is that people would want to maximise on profits, but in reality profits are basically 10-15%. That is not exactly what is happening on the market."

Common sense is the one thing that is clearly lacking in those who lead us.

"With effect from midnight tonight, a fuel pump price of $3.11 per litre for diesel and $3.31 per litre for petrol will come into effect. These prices are predicated on the ruling official exchange rate of 1:1 between the bond note and the US dollar and also on the need to keep fuel retailers viable," Mnangagwa on 12 January 2019.

Before the increase, diesel cost $1.38 a litre, and petrol $1.43 a litre.

Where was Mnangagwa's discipline when he increased the price of diesel and petrol by 125% and 131% respectively?

The exchange rate of the country's local currency to the US$ was 1:1 in January and today it is 4:1 which means the prices should go up 400%! So what is the regime complaining about, especially when it is the one responsible for the local currency losing its value!

"As government we are going to enforce discipline (price control)!" said Minister Moyo.

Zanu-PF blatantly rigged last year's elections and thus dashing the nation's hope of emerging from the shadow of a pariah state ruled by corrupt and vote rigging thugs. The regime was confident it will rig economic recover and that is now proving a bridge to far!

"We cannot separate democracy and discipline!" You are right Minister Moyo and you and your fellow Zanu-PF thugs are and not only deficient in two virtues but worse still have no common sense. You have dug yourself and the nation into a hell-hole and lack the common sense to stop digging
