the floor to exercise its right to reply in order to counter the
misrepresentation and mischaracterization by Hon Ian McCartney,
Minister of the United Kingdom, of the aborted campaign of thuggery
and mayhem perpetrated by the MDC opposition in a suburb of Harare
on 11th March 2007 and sponsored by the intelligence
services of the United Kingdom and its allies to effect a regime
change agenda in Zimbabwe.
The irony is not
lost on us that the these sponsors of destruction are the first
to condemn the Zimbabwean Government and its law enforcement agents.
They are quick to demonstrate public displays of sympathy to the
injured perpetrators of violence. Tellingly, the United Kingdom
will not offer any sympathy to the injured and hospitalized police
officers. The British call a lawless gathering a prayer meeting.
Since when are acts of malicious destruction of property, arson,
mayhem, erection of barricades across our streets and wielding and
throwing teargas canisters at police forms of prayer?
In civilized countries
teargas canisters are the property of law enforcement agencies and
not of so called church faithfuls. And we ask who is supplying the
opposition with teargas canisters? What other weapons of destruction
have they supplied the opposition?
Let the United
Kingdom be informed that we are the true custodians and guardians
of the ideals of our liberation struggle and we are determined to
remain free from the colonial slave masters for all time. We see
through your machinations to re-colonize us. Let me assure you that
we will resist you. Pity those of our people you have successfully
turned into your puppets through the US$1 million you and your allies
donated to the opposition. Zimbabwe will determine its destiny democratically
as she has done since independence in 1980 and does not need any
lecture from the likes of the United Kingdom who have demonstrated
their contempt for a truly free people that we have become. Zimbabwe
will never be a colony again.
