'Dokora was Mugabe's blue eyed boy in Cuba'

ZimFirst leader Maxwell Shumba has described former Primary and secondary education minister Lazarus Dokora as having been former President Robert Mugabe's blue-eyed boy s assigned as an English teacher on the Cuban Teachers training programme.

He said for 4 years he (Shumba) was a student of Lazarus Dokora, the loony Zimbabwean Minister of Education.

"Dokora was assigned as an English Teacher on the Cuba Teachers Training Program, a role which was meant to keep Student Teachers' English language proficiency up to speed in an all Spanish learning environment. He was always sneaky and had some aloofness in him. He was different and we did not know why. A few years later after I graduated I was shocked to hear that Dokora visited my friend's house in the middle of the night with CIO operatives demanding property he had given to my friend as a courier upon leaving Cuba;" he said.

"Dokora and his hoodlums were ruthless in executing a military-style operation which left the family deeply traumatized. The crime was that their son kept the TV and stereo instead of taking it from Harare to Gweru where Dokora intended to sell the merchandise. Hearing this horrifying story it finally dawned on us that all along Dokora was less a lecturer than a Mugabe assigned man in our classes. His English classes we all knew were worthless and nobody ever cared whether they attended or not. He was just being there and enjoying the Cuban sunshine and the perks that came on being Mugabe's eye on the program."

He said when he finally left his lecturer post in Cuba Dokora became a Director in the Ministry of Higher Education and eventually, a Deputy Minister and of late perennial Minister on Mugabe's know nothing cabinet executing the geriatric's crazy missions.

"That's Dokora's brief resume for you. He is mean, arrogant and vicious. And Mugabe's blue-eyed boy. Those who live in Mashonaland Central have horrific stories to tell about this man from past election cycles when he commandeered troops of political thugs," he said.

"In a country facing economic doom, he is in the news every day. First for banning Scripture Unions in Schools, then the decree on the pledge in Schools and the latest decree on making teachers wear a uniform. The Emperor has no clothes. What a shame! Why is Dokora doing all this? The answer is anybody's guess but my best shot is that he is simply following orders from the man who brought him on board the gravy train. Mugabe is 92 years old and senile. He is married to a narcissistic wife. The combination of senilism (word is my invention) and narcissism is what we witness today. True to their behaviour Mugabe and his wife want to create diversions so that people don't focus on the myriad of illnesses afflicting the nation."

He said everything has broken down in Zimbabwe and what a better way to distract the attention of Zimbabweans than make them focus on trivialities.

"Predictably we have fallen into the trap once again. Social media is awash with Dokora crazy stuff. Dokora this, Dokora that and nothing is neither progressive nor productive. It's all regression but to his credit, Dokora is doing Mugabe's dirty bidding very well. He is a man who owes Mugabe years of riding on the gravy train and so far he gets a pass on repaying his debt;" he said.

"More horrible stuff is expected to come from the pot cooked by Mr Senile and Mrs Narcism and dished by none other than Lazarus Dokora. We will change that without fear."
