In life, cutting corners, in order to obtain what is desired, can be the most serious oversight. Corruption is itself driven by desire to cut corners in order to obtain value—without consideration of consequences. But one of the truisms that cannot be erased in this universe is maintained in that: A problem is a problem, only because it contains a lie. Without lies problems do not exist.
Imagine a person whose car is failing to start up in the morning? The person starts attending to brake pads, instead of what causes failure to start the engine? If anyone desires to know the definition of being stuck in a problem, it is behaving like what this driver does. A problem ceases to be one—as soon as the concerned person accurately identifies what causes failure to start the engine.
The army commander has suddenly become the Messiah in Zimbabwe. Our Christian brothers are tripping against each other in seeking to project that what is transpiring is their answered prayer. But the things of God are portrayed in truth, which is what sets humanity free (John 8:31-32).
It may be true that wrong things happened under the leadership of Robert Mugabe. But we have to first look at what caused the wrongness, before supposing that the unelected Mnangagwa can now be the Messiah. Zanu PF unanimously endorsed Robert Mugabe to be the one to stand in 2018 elections.
However, what now transpires is that those same Zanu PF supporters could have just pretended to support Mugabe when the opposite was true? It should be clear on normal human beings, that all problems emanate from falsehood and nothing can be sustained on falsehood. Did the army remove Mugabe from power, because of errors of omission or commission?
Three questions remain unanswered, which in my view, will constitute the cause of more serious problems, in future, for this country. Taking comfort in the prevailing tranquility is like someone convicted to hang—but enjoying and celebrating, before the actual day of his hanging.
