- [6:23 AM, 10/20/2016] Gandanga: Good morning cdes. Allow me to ask what is our understanding of the role of public office bearers in a constitutional democracy? Is Zimbabwe a constitutional democracy?
- [6:25 AM, 10/20/2016] Stanley: Morning
- [6:28 AM, 10/20/2016] Stanley: Legislative authority
- [6:28 AM, 10/20/2016] Stanley: Judiciary authourity
- [6:32 AM, 10/20/2016] Shingai Ndoro: 👌🏿👍🏿👏🏿
- [6:34 AM, 10/20/2016] MD Mawere: Great question. Indeed, what is and should be the role of the government and its craftsmen?
- [6:36 AM, 10/20/2016] Stanley: Public office bearers must provide service to the public diligently, exercise impartiality and be transparent
- [6:38 AM, 10/20/2016] MD Mawere: Who do Ministers owe a duty to?
- [6:42 AM, 10/20/2016] Stanley: They must not display corruption, tribalism and nepotism. Their offices must open to all and sundry. The officers have to be in office for the stipulated number of hours
- [6:42 AM, 10/20/2016] MD Mawere: Answer the question?
- [6:45 AM, 10/20/2016] Stanley: To the public
- [6:47 AM, 10/20/2016] MD Mawere: Who is the public? Is the term inclusive or exclusive
- [6:47 AM, 10/20/2016] Stanley: It’s an inclusive term
- [6:52 AM, 10/20/2016] Tinashe Mpasiri: Ministers ought to serve me. I elected them. It is my power that they’re clothed in.
- [6:54 AM, 10/20/2016] Stanley: Ministers owe duty to the masses/ ordinary person. Dr Nkosana Moyo fled Mugabe govt to SA because of annoyance at being remote controlled
- [6:55 AM, 10/20/2016] MD Mawere: How can a sovereign human being be remote controlled? Can you imagine the enterprise of remote controlling someone?
- [7:51 AM, 10/20/2016] Dr Vusumuzi Sibanda Sibbs: Great post in view of the use of power in Zim

- [8:50 AM, 10/20/2016] Gandanga: [06:30, 10/20/2016] GANDANGA: Topic….
- Good morning Mom. Allow me to ask what is our understanding of the role of public office bearers in a constitutional democracy? Is Zimbabwe a constitutional democracy?
- [07:18, 10/20/2016] Mai Mutunhu: One can say that Zimbabwe has the infrastructure to be governed as a constitutional democracy, however there seems to be a mechanical fault in the execution.
- [07:21, 10/20/2016] Mai Mutunhu: Tapuea, how are you. Your mind never sleeps. We all need answers to so many questions .
- [08:56, 10/20/2016] Brett Holley: Cadre those questions are very valid in a country that has laws and a working judicial system.
We can debate all day and night and come up with brilliant ideas and laws. But as long as a dictatorship is in charge there is zero point in wasting our time.
A violent and bloody revolution that kills all people who support Zanu is the only solution to this problem.
Of we allow zanu members to be allowed into a GNU or a NTA or any other coalition, it will give them a lifeline whereby they will bring all their evil and corruption with them and influence whomever they partner with. That will take us back decades. A revolution will take us back a few years at most.
That’s my opinion.
- [08:59, 10/20/2016] GANDANGA: That is true Cde. What I am trying to do is look at possible ways of raising public awareness in the roles they can play in shaping the duties of public officials
- [09:02, 10/20/2016] Brett Holley: Yes that is what must be done. Voter education.
But in reality look at who the people are supporting in opposition parties.
How can we now go and explain to voters the salaries that public officials must get when the president of an opposition gets a $3million mansion in a country whose children learn under trees?
A deputy president whose benefits monthly are over $30000 and yet her supporters see nothing wrong with that?
Kikikiki. It’s a long long long walk to freedom in Zimbabwe cadre.
And that’s freedom of the mind and brain to start with, nevermind political freedom.
- [9:31 AM, 10/20/2016] MD Mawere: [09:06, 10/20/2016] GANDANGA: What’s your take on that issue?
[09:25, 10/20/2016] Lucy Matibenga: To tell you the truth some of us are from the past and may not be useful in these modern debates. Our Zim situation is so overwhelming to the extent that some of these issues don’t mean anything. The main aim is to work out how to get out of the dungeon where zanu has put us.
However I am keen to follow the debate on the group
- [9:41 AM, 10/20/2016] +263 77 448 0141: The case in which Harare man Hardlife Mudzingwa filed an application to the High Court seeking for the prosecution of Higher Education minister Professor Jonathan Moyo has been deffered .In a telephone interview with The Loud Voice Wednesday night, Mudzingwa said Moyo did not respond to papers served by his legal counsel citing that he had received the papers late.”Professor Moyo argued that he only received papers today at 10.30 am and could not respond.So will wait for his submissions on Monday and hopefully attend a hearing on Tuesday afternoon,”said Mudzingwa.Professor Moyo is accused of abusing $450 000 from Zimbabwe Development Fund(Zimdef) where he is trustee by virtue of been Higher and Tertiary Education minister.He has since justified his actions equating himself to Robin Hood and Mudzingwa wanted the court to give Moyo the platform to prove his cause that he is allowed to abuse public funds under the guise of ‘Robin Hood’ a fairy tale character famed for robbing from the rich to feed the poor.
