OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT MNANGAGWA

1168

Your Excellency the President let me begin by applauding you on your 50.8% triumph on this year’s elections giving you your first term as President of Zimbawe.

I would like to thank you for evangelising peace and tolerance during the campaigning phase which l believe contributed largely to the peaceful casting of ballots on the 30th of July.

Mr President l was deeply disgusted by the gross exhibition of violence unleashed by the security forces, particularly the military personnel, on civilians whom the security forces took an oath to serve and protect.

Mr President you have projected yourself as a force of change, a symbol of hope and national unity.

You have projected yourself as a visionary not only capable of fixing our economic problems but also capable of mending the chasms that divide us as Zimbabweans conversely the fact that you were Mugabe’s chief strategists have not escaped Zimbabweans’ minds therefore the display of violence by the army in Harare on the 1st of August builds a perception that indeed you will rule this great nation in the same fashion as Mr Mugabe.

Going forward Mr President such short sighted decisions to unleash the army on civilians must come to an immediate end. You are on record for saying the past belongs in the past and l strongly believe that the only way to achieve such a goal is to make sure that the brutality of the security forces is dead and buried. You have been given a 5 year mandate to govern and optimistically you will not suffer from political hysteria and not deliver on your campaign promises.

It is crucial to remember that you serve at the pleasure of your citizens and if you abuse the people’s power the same citizens will take to the streets and march to the Munhumutapa Offices to remove you in the same fashion Mugabe was removed from office.

As a youth and a University student I’d like to have faith that you will perpetuate your agenda to create employment and opportunities for the youth and that you will resuscitate our economy.

I also strongly advise you Mr President to let the former President Robert Mugabe who is a national icon to rest and spent the remainder of his days in peace without persecution. Mr Mugabe is liberator and a revolutionary as such he should be awarded that respect despite the errors of omission of commission made.

Being beside Mugabe for the past 37 years the entire nation and international community will be keeping a close eye on you therefore please respect the people’s rights and the entire constitution as a whole.

As a way of entrenching our democracy l believe the military and the entire security forces should not be partisan and should be guided by the philosophic mantra “the gun shall not lead politics, politics shall always lead the gun” so as to preserve your legacy of democracy captured by your mantra “the voice of the people is the voice of God”.

The road ahead is long and tough and so are we as Zimbos, were there is a will there is a way. Lead us to the promised land Mr President. GOD BLESS YOU MR PRESIDENT AND GOD BLESS ZIMBABWE.

Wishing you success
Mberi Prince
(CITIZEN & STUDENT)
