"There Is Hunger For Change Amongst Zimbabweans" - Piers Pigou

Piers Pigou, a Consultant for the International Crisis Group, and also a Consultant for Cabo Ligado, said Zimbabweans are hungry for change.

He was commenting on pictures of the opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) Sunday rally held at Mkoba, Gweru that were circulated on social media. He said:

There is a hunger for change amongst these Zimbabweans. The country remains locked in a political trajectory, curated in the main by ZanuPF, that promotes a zero-sum approach to political power.

The ruling ZANU PF is accused of collapsing a “once vibrant” economy through “corruption and poor policies.”

Authorities, however, blame sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe following the chaotic land reform programme at the turn of the millennium.

All these comments come as Zimbabwe is gearing for the 26 March by-elections and 2023 elections with the opposition pledging to resolve the crises in the country.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s administration says it has made significant progress since taking over from the Robert Mugabe-led administration, therefore, they deserve to be given a new mandate.

Its never gonna be that easy to dethrone Zanu pf. They might lose in the elections but still rig just like they've always been. For example, there was a time when Morgan Tsvangirai won the elections, look what happened to him , he was beaten up , jailed etc.Zanu pf inotora nyika by force and I suggest we do the same. Let us fight for the Zimbabwe we want or we'll end up in tears. We shouldn't involve other countries in our own matters. What happened in Afghanistan should be a wake up call for us. If we join forces with one another regardless of language , tribe,colour nothing can stop us

TOGETHER WE CAN

PIERS PIGOU HAS MADE A CORRECT ASSESSMENT OF CITIZENS' HUNGER FOR CHANGE. THIS ZANU PF ADMINISTRATION MADE A MISTAKE. THEY PROMISED MANNA FROM HEAVEN ON THEIR INAUGURATION. THEY HAVE SINCE CHANGED FROM BAD TO WORSE THAN THE LATE PRESIDENT, ROBERT GABRIEL MUGABE.

LET US BE AWARE OF ZANU PF CHICANERY WHICH THEY APPLIED IN 2008 AND 2018 HARMONISED ELECTIONS WHERE WE CLAIM TO HAVE HAD BEATEN ZANU PF HANDS DOWN.

[ DO NOT VOTE FOR ZANU PF. DO NOT VOTE
