Zimbabweans have reason to panic- Letter to Chombo


In any case, we already knew these two men were token place holders, didn’t we? Each time Chinamasa has tried to take some responsibility, he has been embarrassed at your rallies. We have seen Mangudya lose the verve he had when he took the job. It’s all beyond him.

We know cabinet agreed to cut off youth officers from the government salary roll. Yet, at a rally, the youths were told to stay put. The 3 000 youth officers, who do not do any work, will cost taxpayers $22 million per year. Each month, $1.8 million is spent to pay them.

The speculation and rumour mongering we have seen over the past week is wrong. However, this is what happens when there is a total collapse in a people’s confidence in their government’s economic management.

Threats to social media users, the press, or any Zimbabwean are pointless. Can this “telling blow” you are threatening to deliver on Zimbabweans please be dealt on this crisis instead, please?

No threats can restore Zimbabweans’ confidence. The economy cannot be frightened into recovery. Nobody revives an economy by wagging a finger at it. If threats, arrests, and finger wagging grew economies, Zimbabwe would be a global economic superpower. We have had an oversupply of those.

Only good policies revive economies. And, as long as people do not see signs of such good policies, please allow them to panic.

To quote you, please be guided accordingly. – The Source
