Now that Uncle Sam and his cousin Albion have not minced their words on what must be done first for 'ZIDERA' to go, what shall we do about it?

Property rights is the moniker for the former commercial farms for whites, stand up and smell the coffee.

In Mash. Central youthful tobacco farmers now have bakkies, nice houses, trucks and are zooming about on off-road motor bikes courtesy of tobacco farming, its the land. Liberation war fighters were not called sons-of-the-soil for nothing and now they want them off the same soil, Persian peanuts!

Even the fallen combatants would 'participate' in another struggle. The leadership have always said come and we work together on a win-win arrangement. If its about their chosen blue-eyed boy, let's put heads together without knocking them and build a better Zimbabwe.

Dialogue is the way to go, it worked before and it can work now. The people are suffering why wait.
