Exiled former Zanu PF national commissar Saviour Kasukuwere said there was an imperative need for Zimbabweans to organise, not agonise.
“The time has come. It is a fact that they will use any means necessary to silence the masses but that is the nature of any struggle. We need freedom; we need a better country and let’s fight this struggle from every angle,” Kasukuwere said.
“Let us take the battle straight to the administration. Each and every day, they must start to understand the pain in our society. The collective aspirations of the people of Zimbabwe will be much greater a force than any other thing; whether they are guns or arrests. Either we organise or we agonise forever.”
Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions president Peter Mutasa said Zimbabwe was now “a military State”.
National Patriotic Front spokesperson Jealousy Mawarire called for regional and international support in facilitating dialogue in Zimbabwe, adding that security sector reform was equally important.
Mawarire blasted Mnangagwa for surrounding himself with corrupt individuals.
During the November 2017 coup dubbed Operation Restore Legacy, the military claimed they were targeting criminals around the late former President Robert Mugabe.
“But we still have criminals surrounding the current President and these criminals are even in his house,” Mawarire said.
Civic society organisations under the banner of Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition are on record calling for “a genuine all-stakeholders dialogue” as a way of addressing the myriad of challenges currently confronting Zimbabwe.
