Spare them

ACCORDING to a ZTV news report Joseph Chinotimba and members of the Zanu PF Women’s League organised a party for Harare’s street kids to enable them to celebrate Zimbabwe’s silver jubilee. Needless to say, the event was

politicised and clenched fists, Zanu PF regalia and slogans were much in evidence.

Have they no shame? Are they not aware that the destitute of all ages who live on the streets of Harare and other towns in Zimbabwe are there because of Zanu PF’s misrule?

Let all the “fat cats” who have prospered from a corrupt regime celebrate, but please spare the destitute the indignity of being forced to “celebrate” in order to be fed a few crumbs from their table of plenty.

There are many in Zimbabwe who would do well to avoid any public pretence at showing humanitarian concern for their suffering fellow citizens.

The image is just too nauseating for public consumption.
