JOHANNESBURG, Zimbabwean political commentator Ali Naka has recently taken to Twitter to express his disappointment with the country’s political elite. In a series of tweets, he criticized Zimbabwean politicians for putting up a fake fight against the regime every five years and then sleeping with ZANU PF, stealing with them, and eating with them once in parliament.
Naka pointed out that Harare, Bulawayo, and Mutare account for more than 60% of Zimbabwe’s economy, yet politicians have failed to deliver to their constituents. He added that these politicians have the power to steal stands, but not the power to change people’s lives.
These comments have sparked a conversation among Zimbabweans, with many agreeing with Naka’s sentiments. Max Lion, a Zimbabwean citizen, responded to Naka’s tweets, saying that some Members of Parliament (MPs) have been in office for too long and have forgotten the purpose of representing people and working in the best interest of the country.
Lion went on to say that the recent scandal involving a $40,000 bribe has shown that fresh blood is desperately needed even in the opposition. He criticized the incompetence of urban and rural authorities, including Harare, Bulawayo, Gweru, Mutare, Masvingo, Chinhoyi, Victoria Falls, and many others, saying that they fail to deliver and still give excuses.
He urged politicians to stop operating like deities and to show the people what they have done and what they can do. Zimbabweans are calling for change, and they want their politicians to be accountable for their actions.
The sentiment among Zimbabweans is that the country needs new leaders who will prioritize the needs of the people and work towards a better future. Many Zimbabweans believe that it is time for a change, and they are calling for new leadership that will bring about positive change in the country.
It remains to be seen how Zimbabwean politicians will respond to these criticisms, but it is clear that the people are demanding more from their leaders. Zimbabwe is at a crossroads, and the decisions made by its political elite in the coming months and years will have a significant impact on the country’s future.
