The day every Zimbabwean became a lawyer

Winners are takers, how can losers determine the pace of the game. If indeed the spaghetti boy on a bullet train is not the Emperor today, how can he lay claim to the crown?

One has to be in it to win it or lose it, it takes two to tango. Even soccer tournament finals are between two teams and naturally one has to give way. Whether by the infamous 'hand of god', there has to be a winner.

A clever loser will go back to the drawing board and come up with something new to wins hearts of the people. Crying over spilt milk will not win the elusive rural votes. Since when did benevolence become a bribe?

Empowering the vulnerable rural community by giving them fertilizers and seed maize can never be called a bribe because it will never be such. The Con-Court judgement, the day every Zimbabwean became a lawyer.

The legal jargon and the prosecutorial eloquence was the only happening that carried the day otherwise, the lack of evidence and way of judgement was a public secret.

Even the grey-haired village head in outer rural Mutoko would have competently presided over the case. Forget about primary and secondary semantics but, just show me the evidence.

Maybe not me but show the world the evidence, remember lawyers are officers of the law who at the same time are 'at work'. Losing or winning they are there to make money. I will fight hard, my little grandson will be a lawyer because I want to be a politician.
