Most African countries have not developed with either military or civilian governments. We rotate members of same political class lacking ability to sell a vision of development, shift culture and inspire execution. Mali was here 8 years ago. We hope something is different now.
Peaceful protest is a democratic right. We all know that the Zanu PF is suppressing the rights of the media, the right to speech and the right to protest out of fear. They have seen what happened in Sudan and now in Mali. It is fear that drives the oppression. pic.twitter.com/ytZnkz9Fm5
