Indeed, it may well be a fact that "sometimes people get the government they deserve," perhaps that is the truth about our Zimbabwean situation.
We seem to have a population that believes that our problems will just disappear overnight by repeatedly calling on the name of God and the ancestors. This madness has been going on for four decades now and has become the norm.
Remember, government puts in so much of the taxpayer's money into their propaganda machinery to maintain the status quo. However, the pretense by the current Zimbabwean government that all will be fine through sloganeering will soon fade away because it never works.
