No one should be naïve about how dirty politics can be, in Zimbabwe. This is as I find myself among those disturbed by how Advocate Fadzai Mahere has been treated, lately. I was totally shocked, especially when some of her attackers came from the ZimEye; a media channel that I had all along respected. This is not intended to defend Advocate Mahere, as if privy to the alleged offences.
Whether true or not, my submission should not be construed as weighing on that debate. Simba Chikanza touches on Advocate Mahere being the daughter of Stephen Mahere, a former cabinet Minister in the ZANU PF government. That is most unfair, not only to Fadzai Mahere but also to the old man, Stephen Mahere.
Did Simba Chikanza, even for a moment, put himself in the shoes of the father, who has not been involved in politics, lately? But how could the misbehaviour of his daughter, have any link with his previous services in the Zimbabwe government? If anyone were to look for the description of hell, I suppose Zimbabwe would fit well for that description.
