A question of identity

EDITOR - The Zimbabwean identity is a genuine, essential, and inherent characteristic; it is transmitted from generation to generation. Defined as an identity that is renowned for its culture of tolerance, pride and unity.
Never before has this identity ever been questioned for its integrity e


specially by the international community, until now when the Zimbabwean Diaspora community is failing to exempt the basic principals that form the foundation of our identity which are tolerance, pride and unity.
With a growing culture of ignorance, arrogance and selfishness amongst the Zimbabwean Diaspora community and misconception of tolerance by turning a blind eye to the Zimbabwean situation, failing to take responsibility and failing to realize the importance of uniting as a people and realization that the voice of the Diaspora could potentially be a major catalyst in the fight for a new Zimbabwe.
Ignorance, arrogance and selfishness can easy be justified as self defence in minds infiltrated with years of propaganda and Zanu-ism, but never before has the question of Identity been of such importance, at a time when the nation is subdued to harsh political misconduct and economic meltdown, of which it has resulted in gross human rights violations by the regime in a bid to clinch onto power and suppress the people from any up rising.
A time where the nation is in prayer for change but constrained by various legislative laws making it virtually impossible to excise freedom of expression and stand up for the right to good governance, excess affordable good standard health, education, rule of law, shelter, child care, food and security.
If the Zimbabwean Diaspora community, an estimated 3 million of us, took pride in our Identity and not only practised the basic fundamentals Tolerance, pride and unity, we will be in a position to regain the dignity of the Zimbabwean people and be it in solidarity in order to restore our legitimate rights in Zimbabwe, to re-establish peace and security in our country, and to enable its people to exercise national sovereignty and freedom.
United we stand a chance of making history and paving way for the birth of democracy and restore rule of law in our motherland.
