Mdc Alliance Namibia mourns the untimely death of a millennial voter, Phineas ‘Phincho’ Zvidzayi.
04 September 2021
A dark cloud has covered Mdc Alliance Namibia Rundu Branch as the external assembly loses the political generator in the national democratic revolution. It is quite pathetic for the Zvidzayi and MDC Alliance family at large to lose an energetic 28 year old revolutionary who had a great vision and insatiable appetite to see a functional and Great Zimbabwean society. The youthful leader Phineas Zvidzayi passed on Thursday morning in the location of Kehemu in Rundu , Namibia. What is absolutely perturbing is that our young leader committed suicide and there was no suicide note left for us to comprehend the reason for this suicidal resolution.
As social democrats we are convinced that when it comes to determining what causes suicide, there are a number of reasons why someone would want to take their own life. We have the conviction that depression was the major cause of suicide because deep depressive thoughts are typically accompanied with a sense of suffering and feeling of cynicism as well as disillusionment. Mdc Alliance Namibia would like to seriously condemn the Harare regime for their dismal failure to address socio-economic issues in our motherland. Phineas Zvidzayi was a well-trained panel beater, what he only wanted was a people driven government that would put the economy on a sounder footing. The cause of suicide was Zanupf’s gross misgovernance manifesting in corruption and theft stealing the hope of youthful Zimbabweans who are now scattered around the world.
Moreso, Mdc Alliance Namibia also suspects that the millennial generation suffered from social isolation from his close relatives to whom he could confide because of his geographical location. The perceived threat of isolation brewed great disillusionment and that probably triggered the resolve to commit suicide. We still believe that Cde Phineas Zvidzayi resorted to committing suicide as a sure way of escaping Zanupf’s insensitivity to the security and well-being of the youths. The deceased survived with a wife and a single child, may the Almighty comfort the bereaved Zvidzayi family and the entire Mdc Alliance family. “Rest in peace my friend, brother and cadre. We shall soldier on with the national democratic revolution to its logical conclusion. Your revolutionary spirit shall continue to inspire more in Rundu and the globe”, said Mdc Alliance Namibia Rundu Branch Spokesperson Robson Ruhanya.
In a nutshell, solidarity is a core value in Social Democracy. We shall do whatever it takes to repatriate the body of the deceased youthful leader. “It’s quite unfortunate that you died before you collected your revolutionary membership card. Go well, go well millennial generation. Lets all offer solidarity to the bereaved Zvidzayi family”, Mdc Alliance Namibia Rundu Branch Secretary General Simbarashe Ndoda echoed. Mdc Alliance Namibia Rundu Branch shall forever celebrate your contribution to the existence the vibrant branch.
Rest in power our cadre!
