Emmerson Mnangagwa’s corrupt regime this week reached a new low by denying bail to MDC Alliance Youth Organizer, Godfrey Kurauone, journalist Hopewell Chin’ono and Jacob Ngarivhume.

Kurauone is currently languishing at Masvingo Remand Prison while Chin’ono and Ngarivhume have been condemned to Chikurubi Maximum Prison as if they are dangerous criminals.

We all know Chin’ono is being punished for exposing Mnangagwa’s corrupt appointee, Obadiah Moyo who looted Covid-19 funds.

By firing his corrupt appointee, Obadiah Moyo, ED confirmed exactly what Chin’ono brought to light but relieving a thief of his duties without sending him to jail is not enough.

By sending those that speak against corruption to jail, it is clear that the unrepentant regime is consenting to looting of state coffers.

From Kariba to Chiredzi, the regime without shame besieged homes, arrested, abducted and tortured all those who dared to speak against stinking corruption that is reigning supreme inside Mnangagwa’s government.

Our fight against corruption is a just cause hence it knows no political party and as such we are going to stop at nothing until our voices are heard.

We shall never relent until justice is served.

Silence and folding hands at this juncture whilst our country is burning is akin to consenting to looting.

Let Monday, the 10th of August to Friday, the 15th of August be our defining moment.

If we love our country, then we must be prepared to take head on those who are running it down.

Let those that are eating on our behalf know no peace until justice is served!

We deserve to be heard!

A corrupt free government is possible in our lifetime.

Our lives matter fellow citizens!
