In times of disaster let us bury our differences

The cholera outbreak in Zimbabwe is a human tragedy we should all gather together and prevent more deaths.This is not time to be bickering about who should be doing this or that .

Zimbabwean people at times vent their critics at wrong time, Minister Mthuli is on right path to partner with colleagues at Ministry of health .When disasters like these happen its no longer a Ministry of health issue but a national disaster which calls for all Zimbabwean people to help in whatever form.

At times politicians want to gain cheap mileage at expense of other people. Disasters come at any given time and when they do people should focus on issue at hand. It is neither a Zanu pf or MDC issue for cholera attacks anyone and in times like this humanity must supersede anything else because lives are at stake .

I could go further and point at big countries who have experienced disasters and they have received help from other countries perceived to be their arch enemies yet in times of disaster differences are cast aside.If people wait on the government we must remember their resources can be limited .There are people willing to assist from local community to those in diaspora so when the Minister talks of ways to donate and we attack him it shows we are lost at times.Where is humanity when we attack him,mind you a donation is voluntary rather keep
 quite than attack something established for a good cause.

When it is lives at stake there should even be no mention of political parties.This is time to lend a hand, ubuntu.
