Of Clear, Clean And Conscienceless Scandals  

Of Clear, Clean And Conscienceless Scandals  

Is it normal to normalise the abnormal?

In high, happy Harare, the authorities seem

to take immune pride and pleasure in policies

and practices that seek to punish & perpetuate

the citizens’ tomorrows into infinite sorrows.


Remember, they normalised anomalies

like zigzagging day-and-night cash, food

and fuel queues, not forgetting idleness,

power cuts, price hikes, forex shortages,

vote-rigging, violence and sick scandals.


They are shameless and conscienceless,

do not even expect them to be contrite

and honest enough to quit in the light

of being implicated in a hurtful gold-

smuggling scandal, they are incapable!
