Obert Gutu is laughing at the 31 July demo which was a major flop and disappointment for many Zimbabweans. The lead up to this Demonstration saw the arrest of journalist Hopewell Chin'ono which sparked the emotions of many Zimbabweans.
31 July came and everyone was hoping for the same demo which happened in 2016 which saw Mugabe get out of office but 31 July was a huge failure. Obert Gutu wrote the following.
A monumental flop at every level. An embarrassingly grand exposition of a debilitating deficit in strategy. A laughable demonstration of lack of thought and precision. A historic exposition of leadership deficiency.
Mediocrity RELOADED - obert Gutu
Many of the organizer such as Job Sikhala went to hiding weeks before the Demo. People had no leadership or anyone to follow for this demo even Ruvheneko Parirenyatwa posted on Twitter asking where people where meeting and which route they were talking .
Looks like this was a social media Demo with no action on the ground. Many people in Zimbabwe stayed home in fear of getting bitten. Zimbabweans in the Diaspora had Demos but one a handful of people attended.
If truth be told 31 July was a huge flop .
Simba Chikanza of Zimeye who has been the top cheerleader for 31 July Demos and is in UK was a no show for the UK demo . People expected him to be on the ground repotting but he was a no show while Zimbabweans in the uk risked thier lives from Covid. Leaders of this Demo went in hiding and left people with no directions.
