Be brave enough to live the life of your dreams according to your vision and and purpose instead of the expectations and opinions of others.

There is absolutely no doubt that Robert Mugabe and ZANU-PF have lost the popular support of the people of Zimbabwe.

In the late 1990s, Mugabe's misguided policies sent our economy and agricultural productivity, our country's lifeblood, plummeting into the abyss. To make up for the financial shortfall, his regime attempted to print its way out of the mess, immediately resulting in inconceivable hyperinflation, topping out at 231 million percent.

I have been persecuted since I joined politics, and I have been living in persecution since then.

Declaring independence was the most traumatic decision I had to live up to.

I always try to be reasonable and effective.
