Many political theories have been put forward in Zimbabwe. However, the answer on why we have poverty has never been effectively answered.
Poverty is of the mind, not what one is privileged to access by way of association with the so-called political gurus. While so many people blame President Mugabe, for the economic mess, I have sufficient reasons to disagree with that notion. On issues of poverty, please leave the nonagenarian president alone and carefully take note of what Jesus said in the Bible.
Jesus’ mission on Earth was obviously misunderstood by many, due to wrongly associating riches with materialism. Jesus left no tangible property on this planet. But, as compared with the richest of His time, who can show proof of wealth that matches with what Jesus has today? Wealth is only meaningful when it is long-lasting.
While in my book I dedicated a chapter on this topic, here are the snippets to tantalize those obsessed in complaining about what the politicians or other people have done. Instead of complaining, one should thing in terms of removing poverty from other people. Benefiting other people is what brings wealth. But, please fix this in your intellectual system: Poverty is of the mind.
People are categorized in groups like low-income earners, middle-income earners and the very rich. The low-income earners are said to be the least-privileged, but not when appreciating the analysis being given here below.
Even when taken globally, people are categorized in the following three behaviors:
• Spenders: In our societies, these are generally associated with poverty. You may give millions to such people. They will spend everything within a short period and then come back to blame anyone, when finding themselves back into the state of poverty. They are obsessed in thinking about how other people view them. They seek to impress all the time. They want to be seen driving posh cars and living in comfortable suburbs. Because wants are insatiable, these people can hardly be satisfied.
