We don’t talk to sanction mongers – Villagers tell Chamisa

A group of disgruntled villagers in Charumbira Village, Masvingo Province, refused to grant MDC-Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa an audience, saying the sanctions his party brought on Zimbabwe are making life difficult for them.

The mob, mostly comprised of women, got wind of Chamisa`s intention to hold a rally in the area and they mounted a barricade with placards and shrubs.

Tateguru TV is reliably informed that Chamisa’s motorcade had come from Masvingo City where they were again barred from holding their rally by another angry mob holding placards and chanting Down with Chamisa and his Sanctions “Pasi NaChamisa nema Sanctions AKE.”

It appears there is growing resentment for the MDC-Alliance in the community, where citizens are starting to see the architects of their misery.

In the early 2000s, frustrated by their failure to wrestle power at the first instance, the MDC authored a draft sanctions law and took it to America.

It was from those recommendations that some of the challenges being faced by Zimbabweans were born.

With more education, citizens are now disassociating with the MDC-A, where most pro-sanctions politicians are domiciled.

Meanwhile, the MDC-A is now attempting to misrepresent events from earlier to gain sympathy.

Videos have surfaced of an unmarked Toyota Mark X, parked calmly in front of the unwavering crowd, showing no signs of violence.

This puts into question claims that vehicles were stoned, by the protestors.

Very few Zimbabweans are however shocked by the antics from the MDC-A, of going to the extent of damaging their own vehicle for optics.

Whenever there is a major international event, like Cop26 in Scotland later this month, they try to venture into theatrics to try and push a narrative of volatility.
