Breaking : CIO Abducts University
of Zimbabwe Students
President Robert Mugabe’s notorious CIO agents
today attacked and reportedly abducted two
student protesters at the University Of
Zimbabwe.
Student leader Tonderai Dombo and another
colleague (name to be supplied) were apprehended
today at the UZ Graduation for raising a placard
demanding that the government must create
opportunities for youth since unemployment is
now above 90%.
Mr Dombo had written emphatically yesterday on
social media, and below is his FULL UNEDITED
statement:
GRADUATION A CEREMONY THAT HAS LOST ANY
SIGNIFICANCE.
On 29 September 2016, the University of
Zimbabwe will be a hive of activity as a new pool
of graduates is released into the dead economy.
The innocent pool of graduates a good number of
whom are ignorant of the harsh realities facing
the majority of Zimbabweans since they spent
most of their times laboring hard in the stake
rooms of the University library, will receive a
rude awakening if they have not yet gotten it
already when they fail to secure an interview
later alone get a job. When they are stuck with
their CV’s having run out of companies to drop
them as most them have closed shop.
The hungry graduates that join the ranks of the
unemployed and unemployable youths of Harare
amid ululations at the University grounds, come
to realize that you can not do much in a country
where education has ceased to be a ladder on the
social class system. Rather getting a degree will
accord you rebukes from societies like mine where
a good number of talented scholars have had their
dreams to pursue education further killed by the
merciless government.
It is against this background of utter
hopelessness, distress, anger, frustration,
disenchantment and disillusionment, that i pen
this graduation message. In as much as i
appreciate the knowledge i have gained at the
University, what i have learned is that knowledge
is not helpful if i don’t use it to empower my
society and my nation, that knowledge becomes
worthless. Thus i do not AGREE with the concept
that “the youth should just learn and wait for
opportunities and/or for things to change”. My
questions are when, How and by what means will
things change at that time that has not allowed
the to change NOW.
What I have learned is that, MEN have to change
their circumstances by acting. In this
information AGE I believe it is the spread of
information that becomes key in inspiring change.
We will use the social media to air our grievances
and IF we have a legitmate government it will
listen and adress those grievances.
I will cut my message here because I KNOW that,
in our society the quest for knowledge has decline
as we have been reducede to the level of baboons
where we feed from hand to mouth and continue
looking for the next meal, where there are no
more savings accounts, but battles to collect the
long awaited salaries in limited rations ofered to
us, when we have NO where to WORK or to put our
strength as youths.
MY APPEAL IS TO ALL YOUTHS TO STOP PLAYING
THE VICTIM AND LEARN FROM HISTORY AT ONE
POINT THE RHODESIANS DID THIS TO OUR
ANCESTORS, THEY SET UP THE LOOT COMMITTEE
AND STOLE FROM THE NATION, THEY TAXED THEM
AND BOUGHT WEAPONS, THEY TOOK ALL THE
FERTILE LANDS, THEY MADE THEM WORK FOR NO
PAY, THEY BEAT UP THE OLD LIKE SCHOOL
CHILDREN FOR QUESTIONING THEM, THEY KILLED
THOSE WHO CHOSE O BE VOCAL AND
INCARCERATED OTHERS, THEY BUILT AN ECONOMY
IN WHICH THEY ONLY AND THEIR CHILDREN
WOULD ENJOY, THWARTED ALL FREE THINKING
CONTROLLED THE CARRICULUM FOR THE BLACKS
AND SAW THEMSELVES AS UNTOUCHABLE AND EVEN
CLAIMED THEY WOULD NOT STOP RULING. BUT
ALAS WHAT HAPPENED, IT TOOK THE BRAVERY AND
RESOLVE OF THE YOUTH AND THE MASSES, TO END
ALL THE MADNESS. THEY WERE REMINDED THAT
IT IS THE PEOPLE UPON WHICH GOVERNMENTS
ARE ESTABLISHED. aND THIS IS THE MESSAGE I
WANT TO SEND TO MR MUGABE, WHO CAN NOT BE
TUTORED ON THE HISTORY OF THIS NATION THAT,
“IF THE YOUTH YOUR DAY DID THIS, YOU SHOULD
EQUALLY KNOW THAT THE YOUTH OF THIS DAY IS
EQUALLY TIRED AND WILL NOT REMAIN AFRAID TO
LOSE THEIR LIVES, BECAUSE YOU AND YOUR
GOVERNMENT HAS MADE IT DIFFICULTY FOR US TO
TREASURE OUR LIVES IN THIS FACADE OF AN
INDEPENDENT BLACK MAJORITY RULE, WHILST IT
IS ONLY YOU AND YOUR SMALL CABAL, DOING AS
YOU WISH AND OPPRESSING THE MAJORITY, WHEN
YOU HAVE SETUP IN THE SAME FASHION AS
RHODES THE LOOTING COMMITTEE AND INVESTED
IN FOREIGN LANDS ALL IN THE NAME OF BEING A
CDE. CDE MY FOOT , YOU CAN SEND YOUR GESTAPO
TO SILENCE ME, BUT THE VOICES OF THE YOUTH
HAVE STARTED SPEAKING AND WILL NOT CEASE TO
SPEAK. WE FROM THE GUTTERS OF THE GHETTO,
WE HAVE RESOLUTE SPIRITS, WHICH YOUR
GOVERNMENT HAS TRIED TO KILL, BUT WE REMAIN
WE TOO WILL ENJOY OUR INDEPENDENT FROM
MISRULE, TYRANT, CORRUPT, GREEDY AND
CLUELESS LEADERSHIP THAT ADHERES TO
PRINCIPLES OF GERONTOCRACY.
HAPPY GRADUATION DAY TO ALL FELLOW VICTIMS
OF THIS REGIME. REMEMBER YOU DESERVE
BETTER AND ASPIRE FOR BETTER. MUKA
