I commiserate with Charamba but we also need closure – Patson Dzamara


By Patson Dzamara

I learnt with sadness about the death of Mugabe’s spokesperson, George Charamba’s wife, Idaishe. I wish to extend my sincere condolences to him and his entire family on the passing of his wife.

Notwithstanding that, my mind is still inundated with cold and crass words uttered by Charamba regarding Itai’s abduction. Charamba persistently made fun of Itai’s heinous abduction by ZANU PF.

It is unfortunate that despite our efforts to engage the government and to find closure, Charamba continued to make fun of Itai’s disappearance.

Several times, he stated that Itai’s disappearance was fake, alleging that he is hiding in Tsvangirai’s house and that Mugabe is too busy to pay attention to such a trivial matter.

Charamba’s crude remarks irked me together with many other Zimbabweans because we know they were not only irresponsible but untrue.

We know that Itai’s disappearance has everything to do with the political party Charamba belongs to, ZANU PF. However, we remain confident that the truth will come out one day.

Inspite of that, I commiserate with Charamba and his family. I know what they are going through although they at least have some sort of closure. They have a body.

Losing a loved one is never an easy experience and I am sure Charamba feels exactly how we feel about Itai’s abduction and continued missing.

In our case, whatever they did to Itai, there is no closure to talk about. Everyday we grapple to answer a myriad of questions rubbed into our faces as a result of his disappearance.

Individuals like Charamba must help us to locate the truth for the sake of closure. If they can utter such irresponsible and inconsiderate statements, they surely can help us locate the truth.

My family and families of many Zimbabwans who were abducted and killed by ZANU PF operators also need closure. I hope this serves as a stark reminder to anyone, especially our brothers and sisters in ZANU PF that what goes around comes around and that there is just but one God.

This God has a way of making sure that people reap what they sow. We are human before we are anything else.

  • Zimbabwe is such a sad nation. I weep for her. What has happened to us. It’s almost as though Zanu PF have ripped the heart out of us. Oh Lord please have mercy on us. Please. How does someone – anyone – joke about the tragedy that Zimbabwe has become. My heart is so sore for Itai’s family. Where does all.this cruelty come from? I too commiserate with the Charamba family on their loss as I know what it feels like to.lose loved ones. And I hope Charamba hard insensitive heart becomes a little softened and that he will repent and see what terrible part he has and is playing in the deep suffering of a nation..

    • maita

      They don’t have any hearts these people, was he not practicing his karate skills on this poor girl? You see zanoids expect us to commisserate wth them when they lose their loved ones yet they have made us lose so many of our loved ones through their violence, their theft of state funds, their murderous election campaigns. A death to a zanoid am sorry to me is a cause of celebration, its karma to me who lost some friends and relatives through zanupf murderous machinery

      We APPRECIATE THE PAIN DEMONSTRATED BY zIMBABWEANS. However, death is not good for any body even a murderer. My sincere condolences to Mr Charamba. He is merely a worker who has to work for his family. To Olivia, please rest in peace.

  • Wat goes around comes around,any sane person cannot joke about death!

  • mastadon

    These Zanoids always believe they are exempt from that saying what goes around comes around.They think they are Invincible and special.But they end up swallowing a very bitter pill,example that Moyo Idiot’s daughter drunk herself to death and he was crushed.It was good riddance,now this Charamba has now swallowed a bitter pill.I have zero sympathy for that Foul mouthed Monster Charamba.I say Khama is a bitch.

  • mastadon

    Next one to have a horrible Tragedy is that Foul Mouthed Energy Mutodi.I will never feel sorry for that Zanoid moron.
