Nyika ino yachinja zvakaipisisa. It used to be counted among the safest countries in Africa South of the Sahara, manje it is now ranked amongst the most dangerous ones. A comatose economy characterized by deindustrialization led to emigration to some regional country whose citizens don't value human lives. Vana vevhu pavakadzidza humhuka ihwohwo vakabva vadzoka vabva vadzidzisa vamwe vavo vane access to guns, by virtue of mabasa avanoita, runyararo rwukabva rwapoya nepamafasitera sare pfumvu yadai kudzika midzi mumamana! It's so sad. Powers that be should act fast to end these evil deeds!
