Patson Dzamara, the brother of abducted journalist Itai Dzamara, has branded Zimbabweans as “a bunch of spineless cowards and analysts”
Itai Dzamara was abducted while having a hair cut near his home in Glen View in Harare last year in March and has not been seen since. The journalist turned activist led several demonstrations against President Robert Mugabe calling on him to resign.
Writing on social networking site Facebook, a dejected Patson said “it is only in Zimbabwe that when others gather the courage to take a stand for what is right, they are lampooned left, right and center by those who do not have the same courage.”
“I am tempted to believe that we deserve all this nonsense Mugabe and his minions have been dishing to us. We are a bunch of spineless cowards and shallow analysts. I am afraid that ‘cowards and analysts’ won’t take us out of this pit of failure and despondency. People who are action oriented will and I choose to be one,” Patson said.
