My time in hospital has afforded me huge spaces of quietness, reflection, introspection and meditation. I am left without any doubt about three things.
First, a new Zimbabwe is very possible, out of civil, peaceful and resolute means.
I have seen and experienced enough during the past three weeks, to know that, beyond any doubt.
Secondly, l have come to understand and appreciate that, really, the majority of us, Zimbabweans, are convinced that this is not the Zimbabwe we want. Therefore, there is only one route to take – fighting for a better nation.
We have to do it, if not for today or now, but, certainly for our children and the future. That fight does not require bombs, knobkerries or matchetes. It requires determination, peace and love.
Lastly, my presence in hospital bears testimony to the fact that there are elements and forces bent on resisting our struggle for a better Zimbabwe – including through murder.
But, l have just completed a set of gym exercises this morning, to the shock of everyone, bearing testimony to power and grace that is beyond human instinct or murder plots – just three days ago l was left for dead.
I am left without any doubt at all, that a new Zimbabwe is possible, through our genuine efforts and without shedding blood or breaking bones.
I am ready to continue playing my part and hereby challenge you to step up and do your duty.
Through civil, peaceful and resolute means, we can make it, because,
We are the people!
We are the numbers!
