ZANU yaora, mahure, MDC sings


Parliament yesterday turned into a circus as Members of the Movement for Democratic Change broke into song “ZANU yaora baba, mahure. ZANU yaora baba, mahure” in response to a song by Makoni South MP Mandi Chimene “kusiya amai nababa vachichema taenda, kana neniwo zvandinetsa amai, zvandinetsa vakomana”. Ironically this was during a motion to discuss the provision of resources to upgrade historic shrines in memory of Zimbabwe’s fallen heroes introduced by Chegutu West MP Dextor Nduna. Nduna wanted the shrines upgraded to acknowledge the selfless sacrifice made by the brave sons and daughters of Zimbabwe who gave their lives during the Chimurenga and national liberation struggle. He was appalled by the state of dilapidation and neglect and the continued deterioration of liberation war shrines in neighbouring countries, among them, Freedom Camp and Mulungushi in Zambia and Chimoio and Nyadzonia in Mozambique. He said that while the shrines which are embodiment of the selfless spirit of the liberation struggle lie desolate and neglected, Cecil John Rhodes’s grave which is an embodiment of the selfish spirit of colonialism which culminates in the massacre of these brave sons and daughters is an immaculately maintained tourist attraction.
