  4. Zanu PF will “give” you 30 pieces of silver (car, job, farm, stand, immunity from arrest etc) until you become dispensable. Then you operate like a disillusioned individual, even referring to some executives in Zanu PF as “god”. It’s enough rope to hang yourself. All those enjoying their 30 pieces of silver in Zanu PF I say your time will come, sooner than you think. You think you are in heaven when you’re living in hell.

    Since when does a funeral become “private”?
