NERA is becoming increasingly disturbed by President Robert Mugabe
and the ZANU PF government continued statements of aggression.
President Robert Mugabe, while addressing ZANU PF party Central Committee said he was fast running out of patience with MDC-T leader, Morgan Tsvangirai and other opposition parties and pressure groups protesting against his government, threatening to deal with them decisively. Mugabe said MDC-T and the other opposition parties under the National Electoral Reform Agenda (Nera) should be sternly cautioned of grave consequences, warning them they will not win the war.
Nera believes ongoing threats by the Ruling Party leadership and attacks from ZANU PF Youth who are being encouraged and funded by ZANU PF are undermining the political process and jeopardizing the country’s security and stability.
NERA asserts that the solution to the continued protests by citizens and opposition is through a peaceful, inclusive, transparent orderly election process which NERA continues to advocate for. NERA is calling Robert Mugabe or Heir Apparent Vice President Mnangagwa to recognise that Zimbabwe Citizens and Opposition parties have legitimate demands which should not be dismissed, ignored or teargassed into irrelevance.
NERA calls for Robert Mugabe, Vice President Mnangagwa and the ZANU PF government to remember that they serve at the pleasure of Zimbabwean people and that the Zimbabwe People have a right to exercise their displeasure at the continued oppression and mismanagement of Zimbabwe. NERA would like to also remind Robert Mugabe, Vice President Mnangagwa and the ZANU PF government that under the Constitution and Electoral Act Zimbabwe is a democracy where opposition politics is a right.
NERA is neither moved or afraid of the politics of aggression and violence exercised by Robert Mugabe,Vice President Mnangagwa and the ZANU PF government. Although Violence and Aggression are standard operating practice for the Ruling party, NERA will not tolerate this type of aggression and will NEVER cower or back down in the face of the ZANU PF oppressors.
NERA would like to also remind Robert Mugabe, Vice President Mnangagwa and the ZANU PF government that the Zimbabwean people are not Western Sponsored and that the assertion that protests or dissension by Zimbabwean People are sponsored by a foreign entity belittles the problems faced by the Zimbabwean People which include
• 95% unemployment
• Cash shortages
• Delays in Civil Servants
• Missing 15 billion
• Unwarranted abductions and Arrests
• Unfair Judiciary Systems which continues to imprison and abuse Citizens and Political Activists
• Continued government spending on leisurely items and unnecessary travel
• Rampant Corruption
• General fiscal irresponsibility
• Continued Aggression by ZANU PF Youth on those who oppose ZANU PF
• Continued purchase of tools oppression during a difficult economic period, such as more police cars, more guns and teargas
• Refusal by the government to ensure Free and Transparent elections by bolding refusing to enact electoral reform
Are all real issues faced by the Zimbabwean Citizens which do not need a Western sponsor.
NERA will continue to Stand United with Citizens of Zimbabwe and all supporters democracy in our Peaceful Fight for a Free Zimbabwe
