Roy Bennett, the exiled MDC Treasurer-General, says sentiment from people, including those in the security services who have written to him shows that there is a groundswell of support for democratic change in the services.
Chiwenga trying to muscle in on political power using the men under their command, but Bennett say they are not with him.
“Many of our young people there are with us. It is also clear that our friends know exactly who have committed crimes against the people and who is planning to steal our votes,” he said.
He said this was valuable information, and affidavits on past atrocities were also being forwarded to him after he launched his online campaign for reforms in the security sector.
Bennett has carried out research on a viable way of organizing security forces to make them accountable to the people and proposed changes in legislation to bring the Intelligence Services under Parliamentary control.
He published the proposed policy and invited those in the security forces to comment through a secure web server which will ensure that they are not compromised.
“I encourage our friends to continue telling us what is happening. My contact form is very secure and we will handle the information wisely and discreetly,” he said.
When the time comes, he said, a future MDC government would be able to “separate the sheep from the goats,” he said, referring to those who were carrying out atrocities against the people and those who were professional.
“We will know who was who and who had done what. Nothing can be buried forever. They are beating. They are killing; they are eating; we are hurting; we are groaning; we cry out; we are starving while Mugabe takes 90 people to Brazil so that his monkeys can eat, drink and sleep with whores.
“But don't despair. They will be doing the same when we jump on them like a thief in the night. We will hit them when they least expect it. And they will never recover. Freedom is coming. Remember: the pain is worst before the child is born. The darkest hour comes before the dawn.”
Referring to his critics who say he is not showing reconciliation, Bennett said if anyone has murdered, raped and pillaged deserves to face justice.
Lying down in front of Zanu (PF) oppressors would not make them leave you in peace. Instead they will keep trampling on you for generations. There must be the rule of law and punishment for wrong-doing.
In other countries (and under Zimbabwean law, if it was being followed) if someone is raped or murdered and the case is not solved, the file will stay open with the police for decades. And when the person is caught, they will still face the full wrath of the law.
“Are people saying that we Zimbabweans are worth less than that? That is rubbish. The issue of anger: am I angry? Yes, I am angry. I am more than angry. I am outraged at what these people have done. They have torn lives apart. They have ripped apart families. They have murdered and stolen. They have left a whole nation in utter poverty,” said Bennett
He added, that anyone who is not also outraged is either one of the few that has not been afflicted or they have become like a beaten wife who is too scared to lift up her head and say anything, unless she is punched again.
“I say 'no'. We are worth more than that. Where is our dignity? Get off your knees and demand your rights like a true man or woman.”
On the issue of race, Bennett said those black people taking $1000 a day to go and sleep with whores in Rio while Zimbabwean women die in childbirth were just as bad as the white businessman who were getting rich with ZPF
“Black, white or yellow, if you are abusing a fellow human being, I will run you over.”
