- Corruption is rife across the political divide
- Citizens have been pushed to the edge
- People have gone beyond fear
- Entire system is wrong
Presidential advisor, businessman and cleric Shingi Munyeza has said Zimbabwe needs a break and that political parties will not resolve the prevailing situation.
In an interview with the Zim Morning Post Munyeza said the corruption that is taking place across the political divide will push the citizens to put their lives on the wire.
“The people have had enough. The corruption across the political divide will push the citizens to the edge.
“I am not agitating for a new political party but something big will hit this nation. I am a prophet of God, and I will not keep quiet as we are being led to the slaughter.
“We have gone beyond fear. Look at the people in Mbare, Epworth, Chitungwiza, and look at the abject poverty. The people have crossed over and it’s a battle for survival. Not even covid-19 will kill them and that is the same thing we are experiencing,” Munyeza said.
Asked why he is not resigning from being a member of the presidential advisory committee, Munyeza said he has done nothing wrong to warrant his resignation.
“Why both MDC and Zanu PF sympathizers want me to resign? I am in there and what I am saying right now is because I have seen these things with my own eyes.
“Being in PAC has helped me to see and realise what I am saying. Why would I resign? I will continue to speak out against an entire system.
“I am not going to point a finger at anyone. I am saying this whole system is wrong and if anyone is part of that system then they have to speak out against the ills of the system,” he said.
Munyeza said Zimbabweans have been looking up to political parties for a solution but these have failed.
“Look at the corruption at the opposition run councils. These guys are the same. There is no hope. That is why I am saying it is time to sit down and have a serious dialogue. We need an about turn. We are off the rail.”
