IT looks like regime change strategists have opted for a change in tactics if the sudden onslaught on the military, on the basis of unverified accusations against the security forces, is anything to go by.
We would have dismissed this as mere desperation if the attack had been perpetrated only on social media, by civil society or the MDC Alliance.
What worries us is when people we thought to be respectable members of the British Government have also joined the bandwagon.
The explanation is simple.
It only needs us to realise that this misdirected perception is usually the result of the slave mentality, whereby the British were literally deified, inculcated in us during colonialism.
What we must realise is that Britons, in the mould of Kate Hoey or Lord Palmer (remember that British lawmaker still dreaming of recolonising Zimbabwe), can never be expected to be amenable to the African cause.
They will never accept a government led by a former liberation movement like ZANU PF in their former colony.
The humiliation of defeat at the battlefront by an army of blacks will remain a blow too big to stomach.
And when the disciplined Zimbabwean army managed to thwart an attempt to turn the country into a state of anarchy, its reward was unrestrained condemnation.
To the regime change strategists, the army saved the ZANU PF Government from collapse during the January 14-16 riots.
After all, it is the military wing of the liberation movement which stopped favoured puppets like Abel Muzorewa from assuming power.
And so, the latest strategy is to destroy the credibility of the armed forces, which they think is the backbone of the revolutionary party.
That is why there are these countless unverified, but serious, accusations against the army that range from rape to murder.
The aim here is to persuade outside forces to intervene and remove ZANU PF by force.
The idea might sound far-fetched.
But Donald Trump has already threatened to intervene militarily in Venezuela where the West has already picked an unelected Juan Guaido, a Nelson Chamisa version of that country, as interim president.
The master/servant relationship established during the slave trade makes the whites feel they have divine right to do anything they like to smaller countries.
Thus, without any verified evidence at all, Britain’s Minister of State for Africa, Harriet Baldwin, has condemned the Zimbabwean Government for the recent violent demonstrations in the country.
The army, which brought order to a chaotic situation, is instead nailed to the cross.
And, of course, for sinister reasons.
Instead, nothing is said about the arson, destruction of property and the barricading of roads by the MDC Alliance-instigated rioters.
This, of course, can be seen as tacit approval of the ‘house nigers’ spearheading the regime change agenda on behalf of their sponsors.
We would like to believe there are some among Theresa May’s Government who are objective and are prepared to knock sense into their counterparts.
Zimbabwe is a sovereign state and the master/slave mentality when handling its domestic affairs is discouraged.
