Former President of Botswana Ian Khama has shown his concern over the human rights abuse issues in Zimbabwe by hosting a gathering with Zimbabweans in Botswana to discuss about the issues in the country.
In a Recent Facebook post, Ian Khama wrote the following:
“As we are all dealing with change in our lives, let’s not forget to pray for our mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters in Zimbabwe as the situation is deteriorating everyday. Today I hosted Zimbabweans in Serowe to share thoughts about the current regime and appreciate their plight. Martin Luther King Jr once said, “The silence of the good people is more dangerous than the brutality of the bad people.” So let us all stand with Zimbabwe and condemn this brutality.
This comes after Ian Khama made another post questioning the Zimbabwean regime 40 years after independence and the citizens are still going through oppression.
In another Facebook post Ian Khama wrote the following:
“Was this picture taken during minority rule in Rhodesia or majority rule in Zimbabwe?
During Ian Smiths white minority rule in Rhodesia, the police used to clamp down and oppress the black majority. A successful war of liberation was waged to free that majority from oppression and gain independence.
Now forty years later and under majority rule, nothing seems to have changed for the long suffering people of Zimbabwe other than the name of the county and that of its leaders. Free Zimbabwe!
Former President Ian Khama has joined the international community in spreading awareness about the human rights abuse issues in Zimbabwe along with prominent African politicians like South African, Julius Malema.
