ZAKA – As the economy continues to sink, public anger towards the
President Emmerson Mnangagwa-led administration continues to grow as was
evidenced by two MDC youths who were irked by the ubiquitous Mnangagwa portrait
which was hanging in a bar.

Shepherd Manyanga and
Francis Machisani were facing charges of undermining the authority of the
President when they appeared before Zaka magistrate Florence Nago who granted
them a $200 bail.
The duo was supposed to
receive their judgement on December 30, 2019 but they were nowhere to be found
with some sources claiming they eloped to neighboring South Africa.
Manyanga and Machisani
were drinking beer at Northend Bar in Jerera when they directed their anger and
frustrations towards the President Mnangagwa portrait.
It is said that the duo
reached out for the portrait which was hanging on the wall and they destroyed
Sources said that the
duo was throwing all sorts of obscenities at President Mnangagwa accusing him
of being the chief architect of the people’s suffering.
“People are angry and
everyone knows who is behind their suffering. They are enjoying themselves at
our expense and we all have our limits.
“Manyanga and Machisani
reached their breaking point and they took their anger out on President
Mnangagwa’s portrait which invited trouble to their doorsteps. They shouted at
the portrait and called the President a failure while recognising MDC leader
Nelson Chamisa as the legitimate leader,” said one source.
Another source claimed
that the duo started to denigrate President Mnangagwa before they charged on
the portrait.
“They were drunk and
they started to insult the President. They threw a lot of insults and told the
bartender that they should not hang the portrait of the person who has made
them suffer on the wall.
“They said the portrait
belongs in the bin and they reached out for it and destroyed it. The police
were called and they were arrested,” said another source.
