Kagame Reiterates ED Needs To First Convince Zimbabweans That Things Are Fine

Kagame Reiterates ED Needs To First Convince Zimbabweans That Things Are Fine

Rwandan President Paul Kagame has reiterated that President Emmerson Mnangagwa needs to start convincing Zimbabweans that things were fine before he convinces the international community.  

In a meeting held on the sidelines of the current Africa Green Revolution Forum (AGRF) 2022, Kagame said it was high time the Zimbabwean government addressed the real scenario on the ground. NewZimbabwe.com cites him as saying:

You need to work hard to change the perception, you cannot bribe your way through it, you cannot just sweet talk some people, even if they say ok, we agree with you, things will not be fine.

The way the people of their own country feel about what is happening, it will always come out and before you even convince anyone from outside so that they cannot have a wrong perception about you, convince your own people.

Make sure they are with you and say look, whatever you are saying, we feel there is change, so concentrate on making sure your people are involved, they are benefiting, they can themselves push back on this story of perception.

If the country is hungry and people have nothing to eat, they are people who have nothing to eat and when the outsiders are saying it, do not go against them and say why are you saying that my country is starving? When actually people are starving, they are starving.

This comes when recent statistics have shown that thousands of Zimbabweans are leaving the country fleeing from the biting economy.

While addressing the media on the eve of Rwanda’s 25th liberation commemorations in Kigali in 2019, Kagame said:

The Zimbabweans are irreplaceable in dealing with their own country. It has to be practical.

I hope all of us understand. Even for us, we want to show we want results. We don’t want anybody to give us credit for nothing.

So, for us, it is to say we can be with you, and work with you and share whatever we can from outside but it’s a responsibility of the Zimbabweans as has been of Rwandans. When it comes to Rwanda, there is no question about it.

We want to do something and convince our own people, later on, convince these outsiders who, or sometimes who would never be convinced. The moment you are with your people, it’s a done deal.

Mnangagwa, like his predecessor, the late Robert Mugabe, have enjoyed respect internationally while they face criticism from Zimbabweans back home.

ps. Someone advised me sometime ago on this platform to ignore @Blue and over the last couple of months I have heeded that.

But the last few days have just proved too much to bear.

Please Pindula forgive me.
I tried. Believe you me I tried very hard

Please @Blue, face facts and don't just spew vitriol.

1. Kagame- puppet to who?
2. French have no interests in Zimbabwe and have never been at the forefront of criticising Zimbabwe since time immemorial.
3. At no time has Kagame voiced any support for Zimbabwean opposition. If you have facts quote chapter and verse please.

As the English say, if the cap fits, wear it. Where criticism is warranted and correct, please for goodness sake accept it. DO NOT BLAME EVERYONE FOR YOUR OWN INADEQUACIES

yu are a liar so called Blue. I said before who ever who cld have used yu to do evil is yr enemy. If I was yu I did rather repent and seek God . Today yu are having sleepless nights thinking otherwise if change yu cld be arrested. My advice look fr God ,He is ever forgiving. Do say they used us to mudder, terrorize innocent people fr their benefit ,now that I m open forgive me Lord .Yu begin to see light.

What do you expect from a puppet leader like Kagame, whose strings are pulled by the French. He'll say anything to campaign for the opposition. Our country is fine. We are doing great.

@Blue, if I may ask, why do you think many entities are against ED? As in, in your opinion why do these many entities including fellow Zimbabweans not like ED and as you suggested?

It's quite unfortunate that when one is mad, they don't know it and will defend their actions since they themselves can't attribute the actions to madness. So based on that, I also tend to just ignore you @Blue when I am compelled to comment, it's because I'd be so uncomfortable with the idea of anyone else listening to a deranged man. Wangu, I can bet you're miserable af but don't even know it, you're the House N I G G A to the ZANU slave masters. The Butler paDjango, you don't know any better and I hate that I sympathize ipapo

Grab a atlas and point to a country that doesn't have problems. His own Rwanda has issues, so he shouldn't speak as if his house is in perfect harmony. EDM is doing well considering the amount of entities against him and his government. Screw you Kagame.

Blue is mental deraged.I went to war because I was convinced I was going to liberate our people.We were indoctrined not to criticize our leadership .But as for me and few others who went back to school after the struggle I realize the folly of the war because the people are denied what we risked for.

I do agree with cde Kagame. convince your own lot first instead of running around the globe to convince the world what it not see.

I went to war when I was sixteen.We were indoctrined not to criticize our leaders ..But when you see people suffer as they do you ask yourself kuti is this what I fought for and are this the people I rusked mybfight for.?Kagame is right,you have to convince you own people first before you convince the world.I fought for democracy, not for s party
When I came back in 1980 I refused to be tied down to party politics and went back to school.

Nhau @Blue maForeigners aneFDI yacho yambiro kunyengerera they tell you the environment they need to provide that FDI, ED refuses to create that environment and acts in counter productive ways, oudzwa where he's getting it wrong then y'all diss akuruma nzeve wacho. The only thing worse than being an i.d.i.o.t is being one whilst believing one's smart and that's both you Blue and your illegitimate ZANU president. Facts are stubborn.

Yoweeeeee 3 weeks ago

That's the effect of being indoctrinated and brainwashed. I was in the struggle with the likes of Edgar 2boy Tekere and many many others. Where things are wrong say so and Kagame is hitting it on the head. Nyika inopembedzwa nevene Vayo. Ukaona vene vayo vachiti tambura,zvinhu hazvina kumira zvakanaka kana tirikuronga nedemo that's the general consensus. And that is what Zimbabweans are saying anywhere everywhere. Saka ED is being told the pregnant truth. Iwe @Blue your task to say otherwise is unconvincing and totally absurd. You only proving that you are in the minority. U are a beneficiary of Zanu inputs including caps and scarves. Ediotic.

It's all about perspective. The medium and rich class won't echo his sentiments. Only the poor will agree with him. That's a cold fact. If you echo Kagame you are poor. That doesn't mean ED isn't doing his best to reduce poverty levels, no. It's a process. It will take time. As for Kagame, he should just eat his shorts. Every country has it's own issues. His sentiments block FDI into this country yet you applaud him. You self destruct, imploding backstabbing, unpatriotic masochists. He's blocking investment yet you applaud him. That's ****ity

You're insane to think Kagame who's hosting everyone and is leading a truly developing nation would get jealous of ED, kutovhuvha chaiko. The sad thing also is y'all talk of zvimbwasungata and use war terminology when anyone who can read or has interest in zvehondo will tell you kuti munotonzwisa tsitsi. Tell me one war, that has been won by maZimba? I will wait for you to say liberation war and then ask you to go and study facts not propaganda!
