Ideas must become action

EDITOR - I'm a Zimbabwean in the diaspora. At the moment I'm working towards becoming a Chartered Accountant. There is potentially a lot of financial gain for me but my heart tells me that one day we have to sort out this mess. Without a functioning country our own spiritual identity is on the line

here. We cannot abandon our country forever.

At some point we are all going to have to make sacrifices if we want Zimbabwe to work. It seems many people have a good idea of what we need to do and there comes a time when those ideas must culminate into action. I’m 100% behind the idea of us all coming together and I’m willing to work like a slave to ensure the security of our beloved country.

If by the grace of God we can somehow unify the depth of talent we have and work towards nation building we can potentially become the most advanced nation on the continent – politically, socially, economically and spiritually.
It can’t be easy and if C.Witts and others pursue their ideas with vigour we can’t be defeated. Meanwhile, I pledge myself to the struggle and may God bless all those fighting for a better Zimbabwe. I hope my mail serves to encourage those that are trying to do something. I’m willing to get with any programme I think can rejuvenate Zim.

An old Chinese adage says ” to move mountain start with small stone”. When I’m 80 and ready to move on I want to look back and ponder “where would this country be without people like me”. One day we will all meet on the ‘frontline’ and work together.
