Masaraure Urges Zimbabweans To Demand Services Now, Not To "Defer Lives To 2023 Ballot"

Masaraure Urges Zimbabweans To Demand Services Now, Not To

Obert Masaraure who leads the Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ) has urged fellow citizens to demand service delivery from the government saying they can’t defer their lives to the 2023 ballot when they will elect a new government.

He specifically mentioned the power crisis in Zimbabwe saying the southern African country has the potential to be a net exporter of power adding that citizens have to push authorities for that to happen. 

His remarks come after President Emmerson Mnangagwa Sunday stated that the power crisis was making Zimbabwe unattractive to potential investors and that the government was working on finding solutions. 

In a Twitter thread seen by Pindula News, Masaraure said:

We can’t defer our lives to the 2023 ballot. The gvt of the day must deliver services now. The electricity crisis must be solved now! Ruling elites are swimming in 500 000, 350 000 & 40 000 but they can’t import electricity? Fellow Citizens let’s unite & demand services from our gvt.

Solutions to the electricity crisis are not very sophisticated, we have the potential to be net exporters of clean electricity. What we need is an active citizenry to hold duty-bearers accountable. If citizens unite and demand electricity this crisis will be a thing of the past.

The NDS1 set targets on power generation, giving alternatives to hydroelectric power in the context of climate change & import substitution measures in face of erratic regional supplies. What has to be done is known & well-documented. An active citizenry can force gvt to implement.

But we need a competent Energy Minister to lead the implementation of NDS1.@fortunechasi was way better than the Soda guy.

He rallied Zimbabweans to petition President Mnangagwa to fire Energy Minister Zhemu Soda and “get us a competent Minister to implement NDS1.”

He said, “Soda can also save himself the Shame and just resign.”

People of the accursed land, lets listen to this voice of wisdom. Surely, surely do you think this geriatric octogenarian leader in the name of Mnangagwa with a 42 year failure track record would deliver this country to prosperity. We are now at the cross road lets be serious. Let 2023 be the year of cleansing our beautiful Zimbabwe from the Zanu pf curses and spells👆❎

Confining your brain to Kariba dam as the only source of power generation mechanics is tantamount to suicide.

@ARTUZvi. Do not publicly showcase your hollow cranium. Electricity is an essential service for teachers too. They need electricity to teach practical subjects like woodwork, metal work, food & nutrition, computer studies and the sciences etc etc. The classrooms, laboritories & libraries also need lighting. Teachers also need electricity at home to mark pupils' books, to do research, scheming and for themselves and their families.

As a teacher of society in general, Obert Masaraure is teaching Zimbabweans that they deserve better leadership & should action to demand service delivery & bring leaders to account. It's called social studies.
