And so it has come to pass that the two ghost women hired by the state to stage a pathetic drama of robbery on the midnight of 7 June 2016 could not stomach the courage to appear before the courts and maintain their shameless lies of having been robbed.

Needless to say that myself, Pride Mkono, Tatenda Mombeyarara, Oliver Chikumba and Makomborero Haruzivishe languished at Harare Remand Prison because of their pathetic lies.

In any event these two were ghosts who could only stage their dirty act under the cover of darkness. Now, it is a biblical principle that darkness and light cannot mix and so the two ghosts could not stand the broad light of day at courts.

Henceforth the court had no choice but to free us so that we continue our struggle for a better Zimbabwe!

One case down and out, two more to go.

A new and better Zimbabwe is possible in our lifetime. We shall come face to face with it.
