Fading hope #NewCabinet

Fading hope #NewCabinet
Published: 01 December 2017 (225 Views)
Now that reality is slowly creeping in, as a parent I'm really heartbroken, feeling betrayed and realising that I like many Zimbabweans were given false hope by President ED and his military Junta. I was beginning to have a glimmer of hope of a new Zimbabwe especially for my kids' education but alas the bubble has been burst with a cabinet full of deadwood and now including army generals.

As a parent my joy of having Dokora out of office when the cabinet was dissolved lasted overnight, the man has bounced back and is having the last laugh in the face of Parents and Teachers who wanted him out like yesterday. The man who has single-handedly undone all the gains that had been achieved after a meltdown of the education sector. The man who has presided over his ministry in an authoritarian manner and introduced an insane new curriculum which seems to have an agenda of indoctrinating our kids not to mention how overbearing it is!!

As a parent clearly in my view ED is not really interested in change, it was about power and giving people false hope was a way of legitimising his rise to power through a military coup and increasingly becoming a great betrayal of the promises made on the 18th of November 2017.

What's next for our children, the future continues to be bleak, teachers are further de-motivated with the return of Dokora, this spells doom.

Lord in heaven how much more do we need to suffer as Zimbabweans when will the citizens of this nation have a say in who and how this country is governed, is it a crime to not have gone to the war, is it a crime to have been born after independence? when will all this insanity end.

I'm writing this with a heavy heart and with fading hope. Mediocrity and incompetence continue to be rewarded and celebrated, failed Ministers, looters, murderers and perpetrators of atrocities in Zimbabwe continue to be elevated and enjoy the good of the country at the expense of everyone else.

Where are we headed as a country?? Anyone out there with answers?   

The only thing that seemingly changes in Zimbabwe is age nothing more
