Disclaimer: I am neither a political analyst nor an a political expert; this is simply me
Yesterday I woke up and decided I wont watch the news anymore; I am tired. Its not even that I watch a lot of it but in the past of couple of days I have tried to keep up to date with so much, I have never neither been so much glued to my twitter feed nor watched so much ZBC (the national broadcaster…) in my entire life added together than in the past couple of days…… and most of that news was, not entirely accurate (to phrase it delicately…. because we are a polite nation even our coups are a gentleman’s coup)
Eventually I have come to the conclusion that, no one person really knows what is going on in Zimbabwe, I was (once upon a time) going to share a list on twitter accounts that I refer to as my #TheReliables for having factual non-sensational feedback on the Zimbabwe situation but at some point they have all dropped opinion dressed up as fact….)
I have decided not to check my newsfeed, if something important is happening, someone will tell me about it…….
How can anyone understand what the end-game when our coup that is not a coup looks like this, The Commander-In-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Force meets The General who wants him out:
Its like those “Dogs Playing Poker” paintings by Cassius Marcellus Coolidge except no one is a dog but its still a poker game, nothing is as it seems, and just when you think it is over………. a new card shows up on the table
Word on the street is we had ourselves a nice little private school coup going on perfectly fine until of course the AU (African Union) and SADC (Southern African Development Committee) decided to intervene… a military intervention by any other name is a still a coup apparently for some reason they cant let a precedence be set………
IRREGARDLESS I know its not a real word but I just wanted to write it
Now here we are stuck at an impasse….. What comes after?
A Solidarity March maybe
To march or not to march…… is that even a question?
PS So I lied I still check my newsfeed, what if something happens and I miss it *POKER FACE*
