Itai Dzamara and some 150 colleagues have been sporadically occupying Africa Unity Square for the last two weeks in an attempt to force President Robert Mugabe and his government to admit failure and leave office.

They delivered a petition to Mugabe's offices on October 17.

"The campaign is not owned by any political party, but a concerned citizen conducting himself within provisions of the constitution," said Mjobise Noko, one of the protestors.

Noko noted with sadness that ordinary citizens were reluctant to join in the sit-in thinking their political parties would give them the go ahead to team up with Dzamara.

Respected economist-cum-political commentator, Vince Musewe, noted that Dzamara was on a noble mission which required selfless backing from democratic citizens. Musewe said he planned to join the sit-in soon.

Rejoice Ngwenya, an independent political analyst challenged 'real youth' to convene at the Square and make noise for change.

"Instead of being cry-babies the youth should join the likes of Dzamara and express their concerns," said Ngwenya.

Journalist-cum-activist Dzamara said they demanded that Mugabe should agree to dissolve his government and engage all national stakeholders in finding a new solution to challenges facing the country.

Mugabe was also asked to make a public announcement that he would not abuse state security agents by unleashing them to intimidate people and agree to accept that Zanu (PF) cease to be the ruling party, and become one of the stakeholders involved in the national engagement.

The timing is bad. Rains, kurima, November etc...Mumwedzi wembudzi hamuitwe zvakadaro. Ita a month of peace. Otherwise I support Dzamara for as long as he distances himself from selfish career politicians.

It's a noble idea but who is currently attending to his monthly bills and fending for his family while hes parked at Africa Unity Square. If hes still there by the December holidays when we close our business we can join him but breaking after the holidays.
