Zim's economic meltdown is real - ask Muchingura and Mujuru it has bitten chunks of their butts

Zimbabwe’s worsening economic meltdown is real and no one has been spared; not even the, up to now, untouchable Zanu PF ruling elite.

Zanu-PF MP for Dzivaresekwa, Omega Hungwe, has been dragged to the High Court by the Zimbabwe National Water Authority (Zinwa) after she failed to settle an $18 000 water bill.

The parliamentarian entered into an agreement with Zinwa for water supplies for her farming activities but failed to pay her water bills.

Zanu PF Chefs are not used to paying bills much less being dragged before a court of law for failing to pay! After three and half decades of mismanagement, corruption and easy money the national economy has collapsed because no economy in the world can sustain such wastefulness forever. After 35 years of pretending Adam Smith and Keynesian Economics of supply and demand and paying bills do not apply to us, particularly Zanu PF Chefs the nation is now being forced to accept this reality.

Even Zanu PF ruling elite are not above paying bills!

Zanu PF Chefs have been breaking the country’s laws for donkey years; they have never been taken to court, never! For Zinwa, a parastatal, to be suing a Zanu PF leader; that is news indeed!

It was reported that properties belonging to Zanu PF Minister for Environment, Water and Climate, Oppah Muchinguri, and Zanu PF deputy Minister for Agriculture, Paddy Zhanda, would be auctioned to settle the two’s debts. Last week Mai Mujuru was ordered to pay $1.8 million for all the cattle, plant, machinery and other assets her family got from one of the farms they seized and occupied. MP Hungwe’s property will be auctioned off too; how else can she pay her bill since she too in broke!

When Minister Muchinguri got the loan or MP Hungwe signed the agreement with Zinwa they never thought they would fail to pay back the loan or the bill because money has never been a problem to Zanu PF Chefs given all the looting and corruption going on. Even if they failed, they never imagined they would be sued.

For those with money, there has never been a better time to buy looted stuff from Zanu PF Chefs; the looters’ business activities are crumbling like sand castles as the easy direct and indirect subsidies that have kept them afloat are all drying up with the economic meltdown.  Unable to hold on to their loot Zanu PF Chefs are selling it off to the highest bidder, it is going cheap as chips!

MP Hungwe and all the other Zanu PF Chefs have all heard about economic meltdown but, no doubt, dismissed it all as just another Western sponsored regime change agenda hen's teeth story. Well now that the economic meltdown is biting off whole chunk from their butt, they will finally sit up and pay attention. 

Comrades, the present economic system Mugabe imposed on the nation has failed to deliver mass prosperity, gutsa ruzhinji, it promised. It has delivered mass poverty instead; not even you, the ruling elite, have been spare of the poverty.

Zimbabwe’s present economic situation with companies closing and unemployment soaring to dizzying height of 90% plus is socially and politically unsustainable. The economic meltdown has just eaten a chunk off Comrade Hungwe, Muchinguri, Mujuru and many others’ butt; tomorrow it will be a chunk off your butt.

If the system is not work then there is only one logical solution – change the system. Zanu PF dictatorship has failed we will have to accept regime change now because there is no other way of ending the economic meltdown!
