Kuwadzana library back — Chamisa


MDC-T national organising secretary Nelson Chamisa at the weekend told party supporters he had repossessed a community library that had been converted into a Zanu PF torture base.

Addressing an MDC-T report-back meeting in the constituency, the Kuwadzana MP said the library located in Kuwadzana 4 was already undergoing renovations so that it reverts back to its original use.

“We have procured material to the tune of $25 000 through the money I sourced to deal with the defective roof and other structural defects, including replacing the vandalised material. We are injecting a further $30 000 for the remainder of the work to be done,” Chamisa said.

He said the library would be officially opened soon.
“Our colleagues from Zanu PF used to torture people at this place during the 2008 elections. They even ended up stealing window panes, toilet equipment and other plumping material. Every resident in Kuwadzana, including the unborn children, know about this,” he said.

He also blamed the culture of violence for some of the misfortunes affecting the country.

“Violence authored misfortunes for our nation. Our bad performance in sport, economy, accidents and even agriculture is because we have no love and violence is evidence of lack of love, Chamisa said.

“Zimbabwe is now in a drought of care, love and hope.
Thuggery has become second nature to us and anarchy a religion that some have chosen to worship and sadly violence is the fabric of our politics. The majority of Zimbabweans need psychological help and have to go through counselling after the trauma of violence in this country.”

Meanwhile, MDC secretary-general Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga has said the “spirit of anger” has permeated Zimbabweans’ way of life to an extent that open hostility was now the norm even in Parliament, the Executive and ordinary people.

Misihairabwi-Mushonga, who was addressing journalists at the Quill Club in Harare last Friday, said:

“One of the tragedies is that we are a country of very angry people and (anger) is reflected in every aspect of our lives for example in the Executive, government itself, anger on responses to policies. You can see and underline.”
