Cockroach Speech: Maureen Apologises

“Yesterday I was asked to give an impromptu solidarity message at the Highfield West rally. Whilst address the women I used a very unfortunate analogy of “mapete”, trying to illustrate how nothing changes when you get rid of just one big one, alluding to the violent removal of Mugabe by the Junta in the November coup by another ZanuPF faction and hoping to show that the problem of ZanuPF was still prevalent, and we should vote them all out on July 30th. With so many women present it seemed like a pertinent kitchen example at that unprepared time.

I am very sorry for the unfortune analogy hastily put together to try make a point. I know and understand the historical context and in hindsight I believe I should have used other examples to avoid handing the violent Zanu PF party a PR victory.

I am a strong believer in a peaceful free and fair election, and am fighting for a positive change in Zimbabwe. God Bless Everyone in , on all political divides in Zimbabwe.”
