wheels of injustice turn... As state arrests Chibhebhe, Nyandoro
Students Union (ZINASU)
September 13, 2006
National Students Union witnessed with outrage the unbridled and
barbarously wanton violation of human rights and freedoms in Zimbabwe.
This come after the police banditry attacked the Secretary General
of Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Union (ZCTU) and Zimbabwe National
Students Union Programmes Officer, Benjamin Nyandoro together with
other multitudes of human rights defenders during
the protest against the economic meltdown, low wages and salaries
among other critical socio-economic fundamentals negatively affecting
our daily livelihood.
It is common knowledge that most workers are living in abject and
chronic poverty and they have been reduced to objects of ridicule,
unfortunately by an illegitimate and vampire regime. Commonsense
has been brutally murdered and idiocy is now rampaging with impunity.
The current government has been hi-jacked by a phalanx of crocodile
liberators and a gang of unrepentant 16th century dictators. The
beating up and unwarranted arrests of Chibhebhe, Nyandoro and others
is a sure sign that terms like poverty datum line and rising cost
of living have been bastardized, perverted and criminalized in Zimbabwe.
The quack revolutionaries continued use of unemployed youth militias
as canon fodder to oppress and suppress innocent people must be
condemned. This failed state has rebelled against its people, workers
and students included and the people must do the same. Our parents
are getting peanuts shells and unemployment is hovering above 80%
of the economically active age group whilst school fees continue
to skyrocket every term. The government has abandoned its duty and
violated the social contract and the most honourable thing for them
to do is to go. Historically, regimes that continued with repression
were swept away by a democratic storm, and there is no valid reason
why the rogue regime in Zimbabwe should escape a similar fate. Time
is on the side of the truth and in the fullness of time democracy
will return to this country, for nothing is permanent except change.
