My brother Evan Mawarire blazed the trail by invoking a campaign against the misrule of the current government of Zimbabwe. Today is day 21 of the campaign and I wish to commend everyone who has participated in this campaign. The momentum is unprecedented.
I encourage those who haven’t plugged in yet to do so. Brothers and sisters, this is not about Evan or anyone. It’s not a photo or video contest. It’s not about proving who is popular or who is not. Its about a better Zimbabwe we are all yearning for.
ThisFlag is not the Alpha and Omega in so far as the panacea thread to our multi-faceted and deeply entrenched problems is concerned but it’s a good and major step towards the solution.
A hybrid of challenges we face certainly calls for a multi-pronged approach and response. Watering a dead log won’t bring it to life neither does flogging a dead horse culminate in its ressurection.
Ladies and gentlemen, most of these individuals we are cajoled to refer to as leaders and directing our complaints to have already artificially raptured themselves into the dead logs or horses zone.
There is nothing much to expect from them other than disposing them. Chances are very high that they won’t even bother to pay attention to our frustration and vending.
That brings us to a critical curve, The endgame curve. In the endgame zone, an amalgamation of both online and offline tactics is what will help us to dispose these dead logs and horses. The endgame – an amalgamation of both online and offline tactics.
We shall get through.
