@Kubatana: “A lawyer has reported that the army is “arresting”people in Harare on Sam Nujoma and loading them on to the back of army trucks. They also took vendors from Park Lane – bananas from the banana sellers are scattered on the road. We are NOT back to normal!”
Julius Malema on #Mnangagwa: “Anyone who unleashes soldiers on innocent unarmed people, you have declared those people an enemy of the state. You are a fool. You don’t deserve my respect.”

Lance Guma: “Terence Mukupe and Justice Mayor Wadyajena were craftily deployed on Twitter this week to hoodwink us into thinking a coup was underway and that #Mnangagwa was also a victim and the army was out of control in killing unarmed civilians. Well the president is back and its aluta continua… the crackdown and brutality persists as we speak in #Zimbabwe.”
