Currency instability, corruption are pointers to a failed State

AS pressure mounts on the ruling Zanu-PF party to deliver on its 2018 election promises, its support base is waning by the day.

Millions of Zimbabweans around the country have lost faith in the President Emmerson Mnangagwa-led government and its policies which have failed to improve the economy.

Instead, people have been shortchanged by the ruling party, which is spending much of its time trying to decimate opposition MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa's support base.

There is increasing uncertainty and hopelessness among Zimbabweans as the volatile economy, shortage of cash and unemployment hit the ordinary person.

Mnangagwa's government will soon be caught flatfooted by sporadic political protests and activists demanding nothing less than good governance, an end to corruption, police brutality, instability of the currency and hunger.

These are the forces that push people onto the streets, not the so-called machinations of the United States and United Kingdom governments, as reported by the State media.

These issues should be addressed promptly in order to save our country.

We have created a nation of vending with no production.

On the international arena, we are scoring own goals and it will be a mammoth task to correct the damage.

We need to take urgent steps to stop this and find a lasting solution to our challenges.

We all share one common vision to see Zimbabwe working again.

The youths have been frustrated by the Zanu-PF government which has failed to honour its promises.

Opposition political parties must unite and forge a formidable front to make sure that a new Zimbabwe will be born in 2023.

As long as poverty, hunger and injustice persist in the country, people will not rest. They will continue to fight for their rights.
