Rebranding Zimbabwe - An open letter to the New President Mnangagwa

 Dear Mr President,

I suggest we do away with symbols that promotes regionalism or tribalism on National identity of Zimbabwe.

First starting with the identity card, it mustn't have info of where I was born the village I come from as those can be obtained from the registrar's database, example take a look at South Africa's IDs.

Second, we would rather have a national symbol other than the bird as it belongs to a certain tribe among the Shona tribe that think the whole land belongs it as you might remember we have other Ndebele tribes which are quiet a number.

To Heal the National remove that bird on the flag, rather use the flame lily as our National symbol. Federal governments would do much better also no one will cry foul.

The Symbols of this nation should identify with all of us black, white, brown whatever.

Thank you.
