Army chefs ask for banking privileges - buffoons have still learned nothing. By Wilbert Mukori

The soldiers are already receiving preferential treatment in that their wages are being paid before the rest. The top brass in the army are asking for more; whilst everyone else are having to deal with limits to how much cash they can withdraw from their bank, they want soldiers to have no such limits.

“IN a desperate move to forestall potential unrest by soldiers - who are already getting preferential treatment on wage payment dates - the Zimbabwe National Army has approached banks to set up facilities at army barracks around the country so that military personnel have access to their salaries in full,” reported Zimbabwe Independent.

"Paying army salaries at the barracks is not possible as we did in 2008 with the Zimbabwean dollar. The major challenge now is that there is no cash on the market as we all know," said a bank official who requested anonymity.

Even if the banks were to agree to deny everyone else cash until our boys and girls in uniforms are satisfied; the cash shortage is going to be followed by a shortage of goods and services are we going to have well stocked shops for the exclusive use of the soldiers only!

It is sad that the security chefs, who are putting forward these stupid suggestions, continue to be so naïve and gullible as to still think the soldiers or anyone can, somehow, be insulated from the adverse effects of the economic meltdown that is affecting the nation right now. Unemployment has soared to nauseating heights of 90% plus, 76% of the people are now living in abject poverty they cannot afford even one decent meal a day, etc.; is enough to convinced even the most naïve amongst them that the situation is very serious and no one can be shielded from economic fallout.

The root cause of the economic meltdown is the country’s failure to remove Mugabe and his corrupt and tyrannical regime from office even when it was abundantly evidence the regime had failed to bring economic prosperity they promised because Mugabe blatantly rigged the elections. And it was none other than the security chefs, war veterans and other unscrupulous sectors of society who aided and abetted the tyrant in imposing his no-regime-change mantra on the nation.

Instead coming up with such nonsense as exclusive banking privileges for the soldiers these security sector buffoons must acknowledge that the no-regime-change nonsense is as fallacious and unworkable as being denied a polio vaccine in favour of stone stone-age concussion. We must just forget this notion that Mugabe and his Zanu PF thugs can ever get this country out of the economic mess we are in. They would have never landed us in such a mess if they are as competent as they say they are. They failed and now they must go!

The road to meaningful economic recovery in Zimbabwe is via meaningful political reform. The dreaded regime change is dreaded to Mugabe and a handful of his cronies who have continued to prosper in the face of the crippling economic meltdown. The question this nation must now answer is: How much longer must the nation suffer to gratify the primeval and insatiable greed of a tyrant and his mates?

The cup is full to overflowing; if nothing is done to end the economic meltdown now, today, tomorrow we will talking street violence or worse!


  1. The Chefs is hoping to keep the soldiers, the Police and CIO sweet by making sure they are paid first and they are not frustrated by spending hours in the queue only to get a few dollars. With the rioting starting already in BeitBridge the last thing the regime wants to see is soldiers joining povo in the protests.

    This regime has been warned that the economic meltdown is now very serious the economic situation that has left 90% out of work and 76% living in abject poverty is simply unsustainable. If the regime does not accept peaceful change then it has per se accept violent change since that is the only other way change will come. One only hopes that the violence in Beitbridge is the last warning for the regime to embrace change and not the beginning of the violent end.

    The security sector Chefs and the rogue war veterans like Mutsvangwa and Sibanda who sold-out very souls to keep the regime in power are now scared about regime change just as much President Mugabe and his cronies. They can see that they will never keep their privilege political status in the new political system. They very have certainly enjoyed the veto and the prospect of losing it and having a vote just like everyone else frightens them.

    Then there is the reality of the economic favours ending with regime change, particularly in these very turbulent times.

    One thing the regime should know that the violent end will destroy property and take human lives but the one thing the regime can be certain of is that the violence will not stop until the regime itself is burnt to ashes and many of its leaders dead and that included the security sector chefs.

    1. What these buffoons, Chihuri, Chiwenga, Mutsvanga, Sibanda, etc. have failed to grasp is that it has been their active support of this corrupt and murderous tyrannical regime that has help Mugabe create this dictatorship. They were rewarded by having a share in the looted wealth or be it bread crumbs for many of the rank and file soldiers and war veterans.

      Now after 36 years of criminal waste of the nation's human and material resources with 90% out of work and 76% living in abject poverty - clear proof that the system has completely failed the nation and must be change now not tomorrow - all the twats can think about is how to maintain the status quo. How selfish and foolish is that?

      These morons owe the nation an apology for betraying them and allow themselves to be a willing tool of oppression in the tyrant's toolbox! If they think the nation will be cowed by fear and allow this madness to continue then they must get this into the "damba" (Trifoliate orange) that will not happen. The Zanu PF dictatorship must now be dismantled and if the dictator continues to offer stubborn resistance then he will burn in the fire lit in Beitbridge together with his dictatorship. All those purporting to support the dictatorship will too be swept away.
      The choice before us today is a simple one to allow the dictatorship to continue to destroy everything of value in Zimbabwe including human lives or to stop the madness and save the nation. |It is not the survival of a murderous tyrant that is at issue but that of Zimbabwe; anyone who understands the call, even a seasoned buffoon, will clearly know what is more important here!
      Zimbabwe needs to end this madness that is now costing human lives; it would be sheer madness on the part of any thinking person out there to let the same twats who dragged us into this mess hold the nation to ransom for another day!It is high time someone looked these twats in the eyes and told in no uncertain terms that the game is up!

  2. The war veterans and the security chefs turned the AK47 on the people after independence and it has been had for the ordinary people to argue with someone looking up the business end of the rifle. Over 30 000 innocent Zimbabweans have been murdered in cold blood by this regime to establish and retain its one-party dictatorship, which goes to show the regime has been very trigger happy!

    I fear people like President Mugabe and VP Mnangagwa in the party, Mutsvangwa and Sibanda in the war veterans and Chiwenga and Chihuri in the security sector have enjoyed absolute power for so many years that they will not want to give it up now regardless of the fact the system has clearly failed. They see everything through the tinted glass of greed and so they do not see the suffering of others, only that of themselves if they should give up power.

    So before the final curtain to mark the end of Zanu PF, we must be prepared for another wave of mindless beating and murders as the regime makes one desperate effort to instill fear in the people and retain power at all cost.
