It’s been a week since I left Harare, and many have asked me what it was like and what will happen next, somehow these questions have become harder to answer, because the situation was complicated, and many factors were at play, but here are some of my reflections from the week where everything and nothing changed. #PostcardsfromZimbabwe
never experience a sense of unity quite like the way I did at the big rally on Saturday. Thousands of bodies, flags waving everywhere, Oliver Mtukudzi and Jah Prayzah’s beats blasting from every radio in sight - it was unreal.
As a child I remember when the teachers at my school agreed to join the nationwide strike, and they all walked home, to join a stay-away, that is how we mobilized, from our homes because it was safer. But this time was different across race, religion, tribe, class and political affiliation, crowds came together, unified and confident in their demands, Mugabe, Ngayende! which means Mugabe, must go!
