by Grace Kwinjeh | The point that should be understood from the onset is that for months now, Advocate Nelson Chamisa’s opponents have made it their duty to watch his every move fault find to humiliate him.

All the noise has nothing to do with love for the 18 year old girl child.

The President’s opponents have failed to come up with alternative ideas and campaign strategies that wow change loving Zimbabweans who see through every deception by Zanu PF having endured 38 years of suffering in the hands of a vile selfish ruling elite.

President Chamisa’s enemies want to cow him into silence, let that be understood from the onset, they will not stop, what is needed now is a vigilant and alert voter to read through the deception. So even if Chamisa reads the bible at a rally the fault finders will find fault and we must not let them divert us at this crucial stage of our struggle standing in the dawn of a new era that ends our slavery.

So selfish even as I write hospitals are closing down, teachers live like paupers yet millions of USD’s are being used on foreign trips, on mega billboard campaigns that bring no added value to the quality of the candidate.

All this noise has nothing to do with the poor girl child.

It is a well orchestrated plan by people standing on roof tops to scream about girl child rights and feminist narratives, protecting a girl who has otherwise suffered more shame and humiliation from the very system some sources of these attacks protect.

The girl child has no future under the government of President Emmerson Mnangagwa; where she is dis-empowered pushed into prostitution at the tender age of 13, with many roaming the streets vending to make a living. I will not talk about sanitary ware or her right to education and proper health.

Lovers of the girl child conveniently turn a blind eye when our powerful politicians use their influence to grab her from the cradle and satisfy their sexual pleasures.

I posit here that President Chamisa’s statement has not only been ridiculously taken out of context, except for one or two genuine critics the rest must just sit down and shut up.

We have over the past months seen attempts to humiliate and denigrate our President, from the same crew of hired thugs scoffing at his ‘bullet train’ policy proposal, to other open lies I will not dignify by putting details.

So much is the anger over the current UK visit, President Chamisa and Honouble Tendai Biti and David Coltart, that we are told again in another nonsensical diatribe that the Diaspora does not vote those thousands who attended the Sunday rally are of no value to Zimbabwean politics.

Again one shakes their head in disbelief at such buffoonery. The Diaspora alone in the last 3 years as stated by President Chamisa contributed in remittances an average of $1 billionover the past three years.

An important contribution as the remittances are important as they have a potential to improve our nostro account balances, finance infrastructure projects locally and guarantee foreign borrowings or financial instruments.

This is an important role the Diaspora is playing in the economy, why then should they be excluded in bullet train rallies? They have a stake in as much as they have stake in demanding their vote, other African countries allow for the Diaspora vote, why not Zimbabwe?

President Chamisa is bringing a fresh face to our global politics as he ushers our once isolated country into the community of nations.
