Emmerson Mnangagwa

The ZANU PF leader Emmerson Mnangagwa in July announced saying his government all this while has been at war with white farmers.

11 hours after the death of the minister of agriculture, Perrance Shiri, the latter who would have conducted this function, Mnangagwa signed what he termed a groundbreaking ceremony with dispossessed white farmers, who have lost their farms since the year 2000.

The statement was a clear military truce announcement as Mnangagwa said, “let us choose dialogue over confrontation,” he announced while also using the adjective “peaceful” to describe what the nation is now to become.

Barely 3 months later, the man has now proposed the Patriotic Bill, a new law that is worse than that of the farm takeovers.

“You talk of dialogue and peaceful resolve .. yet you plan to hold Zimbabweans to ransom in chains…” asks NenaEye, a Twitter user.
