Someone May Take Heed

I AM a Zimbabwean living in the diaspora and I always read your articles Joram Nyathi which I must admit make a lot of sense.


However, I am sure you will agree with me that these articles are not reaching the destination which needs them most, that is the leadership in our country.

All progressive Zimbabweans would like the talks to succeed so that the country can start rebuilding, but it seems politicians have a different agenda from the rest of the suffering masses, especially those who have benefited from the system of government that has destroyed our country.

We long to return home but as things stand we are going to languish in the diaspora for the foreseeable future. Mugabe and Tsvangirai are the major players in these talks and if they are human enough they should be able to agree to move the country forward.
If Mugabe refuses to compromise and Tsvangirai allows him to have it his own way, he will have shown the people of Zimbabwe that he is for the people. As things stand we have a situation which is described by our African proverb, when the two elephants fight it’s the grass that suffers. Keep writing my brother, someone might take heed one day
