Ncube, super-duper PAC member, blame povo for fuel price hike - how arrogant

"Presidential Advisory Council member Trevor Ncube has blamed ordinary Zimbabweans for the step taken by the central bank to liberalise the price of fuel by removing the 1:1 exchange rate," reported Bulawayo 24.

"The move by RBZ caused an increase to the price of fuel on Tuesday. Ncube said Zimbabweans have been calling for the removal of the 1:1 exchange rate and they must feel the pain."

"Dear Zimbabwe, I am completely outraged by your outrage over things that you have been calling for which have just happened." Ncube said." Your rush to be part of popular opinion and in with the outraged crowd is so pedestrian. Yours Equally Outraged Compatriot."

If this story is true then all one can say is power corrupts and absolute power of an illegitimate regime and its pompous and equally unaccountable Presidential Advisory busy bodies real sucks!

If the price of fuel has gone up because RBZ and government listened to the ordinary Zimbabweans' demand for the liberalise the exchange rate then why has government failed to increase the civil servants' wages using the same exchange rate as that used to calculate the fuel price increase. Better still, why is the government refusing to pay the civil servants wages in US$ as they have requested countless times.

Everything and I meaning everything about this Zanu-PF dictatorship stinks!

1)    Mnangagwa and his Zanu-PF junta rigged last July's elections after they had promised to hold free, fair and credible elections

2)    Mnangagwa not only retained Mugabe's dirty habit of keeping super-duper, supernumerary, undemocratic, very expensive and utterly useless and annoying bodies like Joint Operation Command, the junta behind the wholesale looting in Marange and Chiadzwa. But worse still he has added other of his own; the train load of former ministers, deputy ministers, permanent secretaries, etc. who have been put out to pasture at their full salary and allowances. He has appoint this 24 member Presidential Advisory Council (PAC), advising him over and above what his cabinet and the retired former cabinet members are doing. And last week launch the Political Actors Dialogue, a forum comprising of most of the 23 presidential candidates and their entourage, to advise him on the same issues the PAC, etc. are advising him!

3)    The national economic is sinking deeper and faster into the abyss than ever regardless of all this advice or is it because of all this foolish advice. And, to crown it all, we the ordinary citizens at the coal face of the economic chaos are being blame for it. "I am completely outraged by your outrage over things that you have been calling for!" How arrogant and indifferent the elephant can be to the ants it is crashing underfoot! It is super-arrogance for a mortal to treat fellow human beings as ants and their suffering and deaths are of no consequences!
