For Zimbabwe by Zimbabweans

Tendai Biti at his best on stage – VIDEO

Former Finance Minister and opposition leader commenting on the unfolding events in Zimbabwe. He says Zimbabwe is effectively a military state and the army has the power to recall whoever has stopped serving their interests.

  • what more if they are protecting the citizens of Zimbabwe, they can not fold their hands and watch

    • hoo nhai

    • The same army which went on rampage beating people who were striking for better living conditions you have forgotten kuti vanhu vaizvamburwa nemasoja

    • Hooh

    • Protecting the interests of the people my foot. Makore ese aya where were they? Nekuti vakuda kudzingwa they start protecting the people’s interests?

    • you myt need to open your eyes and see the real deal #Tutsirai

  • Thula Biti

  • They can represent the citizen of Zimbabwe whilst they are representing one certain party they must not interfering with the politics of the country they must serve the nation

    • :u2late -ey hav already interfered – takotozvi fariri musi wa 18Nov

    • But don’t forget that Chiwenga is the man who denied us our independence in 2008 after Morgan won the elections ?

    • And he said i will never salute who .

  • Biti all talk. Bla Bla Bla. Zimbabwe has always been like that. We all know. However right now love them or not. They did the right thing.

    • Nevertheless I must say you have loads of talent. You tell it like it is. awesome oratory skills and a sharp mind. Well done.

  • True

  • Asi haunakuenda kuhondo ask me musango munorwadza hamuna office hamuna freedom hamuna chipatara hamunachikafu munodzwenga mabara ne mabhazuka hamuna mapitsa fanami rega tidye rifa redu imwe ita zvemuoffice diki isu toita zve office hombe dzakararira musango

  • true bit I
    where was the army b4 garwe get fired

    • pamwe vakazo pindira vawona zvakuma extremes.handit panga pakutoitwa nation wide purge

  • Ana Biti mungo vukura vukura anaMunangagwa vati zete pauPresident.So infamous hv u bcum no longa trending.

  • Biti is right those powers did us a good job but they shouldn’t be allowed to go out of bounce.

  • You mean It took you 37yrs to realise it?? Imagine Some people who have for 37yrs been brutally repressed. How does it feel sir to be on the other side???

  • You can say that again Mr Biti. This current President is not a peoples’ choice. This is indeed a military state just like in the early 19th century when this country was a Company state controlled by the British South African Company.The army stepped in because a friend to the General had been evicted from ZANU Pf and Gvt. In 2008, things went to the extremes, people died of poverty and diseases but the army watched from the terraces because those linked to the army were looting state assets.

  • Pachaitwa ma elections next apo ngaadyiwe Ngwena ndoo pamuchaona kuti masoja ndee Ngwena not evanhu

  • the army only has power to recall an unpopular president. if they try their stunt on a president who knows what he is doing they will regret it

    • Tsvangirai was popular and won an election and the military stopped him

    • Tsvangirai futi. He is a dictator why is he not handing the baton stick

    • tsvangirai was never a president at any point

  • Kana usina military backup buda mupolitics kuteya zhou neriva.

  • The Military u are talking about is composed of well educated members who know how to save a country from falling or being torn apart by ambitious and direction less green politicians like u Biti,you were once in that government and u failed to deliver so what alse do u what? Do u want the members of the ZDF to sit down and relax watching u politcians destroying the country? PEACE PEACE PEACE mr Biti is what matters most.Without peace there is no development

    • We knw u zanu fanatics. Peace ipiko n zim n a country wth well knwn state sponsored brutuality? Revai dzimwe nhema kwete idzi

    • Biti delivered usareve nhema une bhonzo

  • Which is so undemocratic though on this one did well.

  • Stupid Biti. You are not relevant anymore

  • Biti akatodzingwawo akarambira hapana zvozikanwa

  • Ari kutodawo impeechment

  • Biti,if u oppress the masses u will be removed,yes!

  • chimbomira izvozvo Biti

  • True that , but its very dangerous to be under military state.

  • Biti is right guys. The army should have intervened in 2008

  • hungry power leader, Biti.uchingovukuru vamwe vachingoinda.Dzokera kuMDC BITI UNGAVA NECHIMIRO.

  • Hatisati tamukunda satan

  • I love military

  • Military state is good, pple like you they dont mess around

  • Beautiful speech indeed . I agree with Biti on the issue of land audit but compensating the farmers? He is on his own. If this guy finds his way into a position of influence Mbuya Nehanda , Sekuru Kaguvi and Sekuru Chaminuka should hit delete button on the word ‘redressal’ sitting in his vocabulary

  • True it was Emerson’s plan

  • Biti sit down

  • Biti, one good thing Mugabe is gone, let’s build on that. Zvekuti ngana azodini zvikazodini let’s focus on the job ahead. You are key to this so please shut up and focus.

  • Mbiti is always gud at oppossing.yu blame the army for restoring order bt yu had no solition to stop the dynastic rule wch ws just a few weeks away

    • I think you short sighted bra, you jus hepy cz mugabe is gone bt the funny thing wat Biti is saying you don’t even have energy to scrutinize. Its not abt for all of us bt for a few who have been looting and wl continue doing so. The army helped mugabe to steal elections of which Zim by now should have been one of the best in the world. All they could do was to deceive the desperate masses into believing that mugabe was the only obstacle yet every member of zanu was heartless wake up hey

  • Very tru mbiti even mugabe over th past 4 decades he ws nt n power bt ws being sustained wt those weilding power n their hands. Moral lesson 4 zim’s unfoldng millitary rule,less to celebrate

  • Kkkk

  • True kupemberera n’anga neichabata mai huroyi

  • True that.

  • It’s not army state. It’s for the pple.only in the event like the past one we engage army.democracy should be exercised at all times

  • Personall I do not feel competent to judge what he said yet.So far as I am concerned,Tendai Biti made only one serious error of political calculation.No use delving into it because I believe he knows it now.But whatever else anyone might say about him,Tendai Biti is an immensely talented man.No one will ever forget his tenure as Finance Minister.Despite meagre resources and tremendous negative political pressure,he still managed to make Zimbabweans start eating again.The day he left his post,those who always eat on our behalf came back again.Result?Hunger again.What I am saying is this.Our new Zimbabwe need talent like Tendai Biti.Lets benefit from it.

  • Just shut up tendai biti….dont spoil the moment…..Mnangagwa and the army have given the people of Zim some sense of dignity…we have hope and u want to take it away from us…mugabe number 2 ndiwe….pasi newe

  • Ana Biti all talk chabuda hapana so what wanga watii

  • That True mr biti

  • Very true

  • True asi vanhu havazvioni kungofara vasati vaona nekwazvinoenda

  • True that!

  • very true

  • Motoziziva zvenyu kuti kunyara kwawo hakusi kupusaka . So whatever you do be reminded that big people are around and listening too everything whatever you do wherever you go everything is being monitored so play the game carefully . We love you all CITIZENS OF DZIMBADZAMABWE .UNITED WE STAND DIVIDED WE FALL. I LOVE YOU ALL IN A NEW ZIMBABWE . LET US HAVE THE WAY FORWAD . NO GOING BACKWARDS WE HAVE SHOWN THE WORLD THAT WE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO CAN STAND FOR THE RIGHT THING SO LET US PROVE IT AGAIN NO MORE FAIRIOURS NOW GO GO GO ZIMBABWE

  • Power hungry dude stick to law lol.

  • True Biti

  • there are people with a very sorry attitude. They think that to be in opposition means you must be always against everything that is done by your opponent. I dont share the same sentiment. We need progressive opposition where only bad things are opposed amd good things are praised.

  • Very true.

  • And where have been the Army for all those bad years. …?

  • And where have been the Army for all those bad years. …?

  • If we can have a President like Tendai Biti, Zimbabwe will never be the same again. He knows exactly what needs to be done to our economy, he have a vision
