Wear Black On Friday Marking The “Death” Of Zimbabwe’s Economy - Teachers

Wear Black On Friday Marking The “Death” Of Zimbabwe’s Economy - Teachers

The Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ) has urged Zimbabweans to wear black clothes on Friday to mourn the high cost of living that has pushed many into extreme poverty.

ARTUZ president, Obert Masaraure, this Wednesday said teachers are preparing for a radical approach in fighting for better salaries. He said:

We will put on black regalia to mark black Friday, mourning extreme poverty in the country, the collapsing economy and demand a solution to the salary crisis and smooth opening of schools.

Black Friday will mark the “death” of our country’s economy. Schools are set to open next week yet prices of fuel, bread and other basic commodities have gone up in the context of stagnant paltry salaries that workers earn. Our teachers and the broad working class are now in deep poverty.

On this Friday we are inviting the working class to wear black in mourning the extreme poverty, marking the death of our economy. Black Friday will be held ahead of the May Day celebrations as we prepare a radical fight to demand better wages for workers in Zimbabwe.

He added that there will be no marches saying holding placards and wearing black will be enough.

Schools are scheduled to open for the second term on May 3.

Meanwhile, the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) secretary-general Japhet Moyo said there was nothing to celebrate on Workers Day given the poor working conditions in both the public and private sectors.

: 🇿🇼 *Zimbabwe’s leading Prophet gives prophecy on the 2023 elections*🇿🇼

Zimbabwe's leading Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa has today, April 16 took time to prophetically talk about Zimbabwe's Special Presidential elections slated for July 2023.

This prophecy was delivered following President Mnangagwa's attendance of today's Saturday Easter church service in Chitungwiza where the President was warmly received by tens of thousands of UFIC congregants.

Prophet Makandiwa who was speaking during the church service urged his congregation to pray for President Mnangagwa whom he said has been chosen by God to deliver economic prosperity to Zimbabweans.

Prophet Makandiwa also disclosed that he saw President Mnangagwa being sworn in as Zimbabwe’s President next year.

“I’m seeing a man name Emmerson Dambudzo being sworn in as President. This man is so much loved by Zimbabweans and he is destined to win with a majority,” said Prophet Makandiwa.

“Mark my words, there will be joy and celebrations next year following a huge victory by President Mnangagwa and l see him moving this country towards economic prosperity,”said the Prophet.

“I just want you to mark my words that all those secretly working with foreign countries trying to fight the leadership anointed by God will receive the full wrath of the Lord, and that worst form of punishment will be an example for all those who may wish to try such an abomination in future,” concluded Prophet Makandiwa.

Prophet Makandiwa is considered as one of the best Prophets in Zimbabwe and across Africa. His recent prophesies on the coming of COVID-19 and it's vaccines both came to pass as he prophesied.

He is the founder and leader of the United Family International Church, a church that has spread alarmingly in African countries including Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, South Africa and Botswana.

Prophet Makandiwa also has one of Africa’s largest TV networks, ChristTv that is viewed across Africa and Europe via satellite on DSTV’s public Channels and Free to Air decoders.

With less than a year and two months before Zimbabwe holds its highly anticipated 2023 Presidential elections, President Mnangagwa has of late turned for support from self-styled Prophets and Papa's in the much flocked charismatic churches in Zimbabwe. The late former President and African strongman Robert Mugabe was usually known for flocking the white garments churches such as Mwazha Sect, Johanne Marange, Mugodhi and he could as well go as far as Zaoga and ZCC. Politically Zanu PF has managed to keep its political muscles intact through dishing large pieces of land to these denominations and most of their leaders have proclaimed their allegiance to Zanu Pf especially the likes of Ezekiel Guti, Nehemiah Mutendi, Ndanga, Wutaunashe, the Noah Taguta just to name a few.By appointing Uebert Angel as the Ambassador at Large to the Americans and Europe, Mnangagwa made a bold move in capturing one of the most followed Zimbabwean Prophet who at one time prophesied that Zanu Pf will not be removed from power anytime soon. Considering that most of his followers in Zimbabwe are gullible and unsuspecting that this man of cloth is just after taking all their hard earned money through manipulating the gospel. His appointment was a clever move by Mnangagwa as the prophet will be used to spread propaganda through the pulpit that will cause many not to register to vote as well as loosing interest in voting at all costs, however one should bear in mind that these prophets they don't just endorse Zanu Pf without massive benefits.

Walter Magaya is undoutly a staunch Zanu Pf sympathizer, whom at one point had to part with thousands of dollars just to buy Former First lady Grace Mugabe book when the then powerful First Lady turned 50 years. In his words Prophet Magaya said he was happy to meet the First Family and he would continue to support the First Lady's philanthropic work. During his then crusade in Botswana, Prophet Magaya indicated that it was his wish to meet the then and late President Mugabe. Considering his large following at his Waterfalls base Magaya has never criticized the current regime for its violations of Human Rights either has he ever opened his mouth about the looting and corruption that is practiced by the Harare regime. He is one of these self-styled prophets who have received large chunks of land and mines at the hands of Zanu Pf, whilst thousands of his followers they are walloping in abject poverty.

Comedian and Flamboyant thief Prophet Passion Java was appointed by Mnangagwa to mislead the youths not to register to vote. Java has been campaigning for Mnangagwa and has been following the President at all Zanu Pf events. The self-styled thief has also been recruiting some popular so****t to support Mnangagwa and Robert Mugabe became his latest victim. The fake prophet has also been bankrolling local artist as to spread Mnangagwa propaganda and Roki has been one of his mouth piece through his music. The young prophet has also received his portion of hard cash as well as mining claims, while Zimbabwean hospitals have no cancer machines and thousand are dying every day.The highly respected and teacher of the word Prophet Makandiwa became Mnangagwa's latest man of the cloth to endorse the Harare regime when Munangagwa and his Deputy Chiwenga attended his highly packed Easter Conference in Chitungwiza. Makandiwa was quoted saying "It is never the responsibility of the government to create jobs for you". The creation of an environment is their responsibility so that you and I prosper and we have that opportunity in Zimbabwe. There is something wrong with a citizen who keeps complaining and shifting blame, Makandiwa said ". However the same government he says should not create jobs has itself been promising those jobs. One hopes that religion is not going to be used by preachers, whom people are following in good faith, to shield the government from accountability and delivery of public services in line with electoral promises. The recent endorsement of Mnangagwa by Makandiwa became the final nail on all the famous pastors and preachers in Zimbabwe on which how Zanu Pf has managed to capture all of them.

However Zimbabweans should not lose sleep about how all these prophets are endorsing Mnangagwa one after the other as this is normal in a game of politics, rather Zimbabweans should continue to heed the call by renowned journalist Hopewell Chin‘ono to continue to register to vote

The top one is not worth the paper its printed on.

The lower shows the monthly value of a graduate employee of the Banana Republic of Zimbabwe, which is about half the daily wage of an unskilled gardener in the Republic of South Africa or roughly 1% of an unskilled maid's montyly wages in the UK.
