ON HIS EXCELLENCE’S INAUGURATION

 

Now that the new moon is set

the past a history,

may there be peace and guidance among us all.

May it bring hope and rejuvenation in abundance.

And may the  spirit of chimurenga abandoned thirty-seven years ago be resuscitated

to full capacity and great advantage for all.

 

May it be born in mind to those in control

that the world is a community

and we are part and parcel to it not an entity.

May it be born in mind that policies which are conducive to foreign investment attraction

are a great advantage to a nation to create foreign relationship and much sort after development.

 

Employment is a great expectation to all school leavers and expatriates.

Our children sell sweets and vegetables in the streets

all industries and factories closed down.

There is no employment

there is no money in the banks.

And our mothers and fathers sleep it out in the cold nights queuing for money

that is never there.

 

Comrade ; black , white and coloured are words of racial discrimination

and their implication promote hatred and intolerance in the society.

But before God

we were created the same

with equal opportunities regardless of race , colour and creed.

 

 

Comrade ; together we grow stronger they say

and apart we grow weaker.

So let us embrace togetherness as a weapon of mass unity.

 

Long live chimurenga for justice.
