In a bizarre turn of events, a raging fire engulfed the opulent residence of Zanu PF stalwart, Chinamasa, leaving the nation in shock. Citing divine intervention as the cause, Chinamasa ruled out foul play, invoking the name of the same deity seemingly reserved exclusively for his political clan. The same deity, as per President Mnangagwa’s peculiar metaphor, enjoys basking under the sun while seeking refuge under the shade of a tree. This capricious god, it seems, grew weary of such dualistic pursuits and decided to set Chinamasa’s residence ablaze.

Curiously, the flames that consumed Chinamasa’s lavish abode have ignited a fierce debate. How can one dismiss the possibility of arson when attributing the act to a divine force? It is an ironic spectacle as Chinamasa momentarily humbles himself before the deity he believes responsible, all while ignoring the factional strife that currently plagues the troubled vessel of Zanu PF.

One might wonder if Chinamasa’s extravagant mansion lacked basic safety measures, such as smoke detectors or fire suppression systems, which should have quelled the blaze regardless of its origins. Unless, of course, the fire was indeed kindled by a mischievous Zanu PF god, tired of the cold weather that had swept across the nation.

Chinamasa’s account of the incident involves a loud banging sound, far from resembling a rocket launcher or mortar attack. In his eyes, this event borders on the miraculous. One cannot help but remember General Solomon Mujuru, whose untimely demise bore a striking resemblance to Joyce Mujuru’s bizarre involvement in midnight rituals in the nude. Had the timing coincided with Chinamasa alone in his imaginary library, he might have been mourning more than just books.

The blazing inferno at Chinamasa’s residence inadvertently sheds light on pressing issues within Zimbabwe, particularly the dire state of service delivery under Zanu PF’s dominion. For decades, the ruling party has perpetrated gross violations of constitutional human and property rights, exemplified by events such as the Nhari Rebellion of 1974, the Gukurahundi massacres from 1983 to 1987, and the 2005 indiscriminate demolition of urban homes suspected of opposition sympathies.

The root cause of these sadistic crimes lies in Zanu PF’s relentless pursuit of a one-party state, where accountability, transparency, and people’s welfare are foreign concepts. This ambition has fostered a culture of impunity, rule by law, and politicization of the police force. All of these factors have contributed to a paralyzed state, with dwindling service delivery and rampant corruption.

As a result, Zimbabweans suffer from a lack of basic public goods and services, including healthcare, security, and education. Resources that should be directed towards the public good are siphoned off without consequence, thanks to an ineffectual, politicized police force, a compromised judiciary, and a subservient parliament—all instruments wielded by Zanu PF to undermine the constitution in pursuit of their futile one-party state dream.

In this bleak scenario, service delivery remains a distant dream, as Zanu PF disregards the welfare of the people in its quest for power and self-enrichment. Chinamasa’s burnt mansion is a stark reminder that without meaningful change, such incidents may recur, with no firefighting services, regardless of one’s party affiliation, coming to the rescue.

The burning question now is whether Zimbabwe will rise from the ashes of political turmoil and neglect to deliver on its promise of a better future for its people. Until then, the nation remains caught between the flames of political ambition and the need for genuine progress.
