Stephen Chuma, MDC Alliance’s National Youth spokesperson has resembled President, Emmerson Mnangagwa to former Ugandan President Idi Amin who is well know for his heavy handedness and brutality towards civilians.
“For Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa and his partner in human slaughter, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, human life particularly that of opposition members, do not matter at all as long as power retention is part of the equation.
From Harare to Kampala, the opposition can not breath as two ruthless dictators go for the broke in pursuit of power at the expense human life. Zimbabwe and Uganda might be thousands of miles apart, but the dictatorial tastes of the two rulers running the affairs of these two former British colonies are Siamese-like.
Clearly Mnangagwa and Museveni have gone through an apprenticeship on how to butcher opposition lives from their respective predecessors, Robert Gabriel Mugabe and Idi Dada Amin and passed with distinction.
For them, to be is to be worse than their predecessors as far as violations to basic human rights is concerned. Just as Mnangagwa used the military to slaughter unarmed civilians on 01 August 2018, the world this week woke up to some shock images of mass murder in Kampala as Museveni employed the same script used in Harare.
For Dambudzo and Kaguta, the opposition do not have rights at all. General elections presents a pocket to slaughter opposition lives like chickens in the name of safeguarding sovereignty and peace.
If not shot with live ammunition, the opposition members are guaranteed mindless and degrading treatment in form of torture, beatings and arbitrary detention.
Just as Hon. Tendai Biti was abducted at Chirundu border post under the guise of arrest, Ugandan opposition leader, Robert Kyagulanyi is currently undergoing through the same experience. It is time progress movements and parties in Africa come together for the common good of extricating ourselves from this bondage of black skin, white masks.
Oppression anywhere is oppression everywhere. Africa cries for new ideas, new politics and new leaders. In solidarity with the oppressed beautiful people of Uganda,” said Chuma>chaosafrica
