Zimbabwe: The Gathering - a Reflection - Is It Really a New Day in Zimbabwe?
Listening to former Zimbabwean finance minister Tendai Biti address The Gathering on Thursday, NKATEKO MABASA realised the immense mental strain that Zimbabweans have been living under during Robert Mugabe's iron-fisted rule.
It is difficult to understand what Zimbabweans must have felt when they received the news that President Robert Mugabe was resigning.
To be born and grow up and have kids while only knowing one president.
To look at your kids and not have an answer to the question, "mommy, who was the former president of Zimbabwe?"
Or as Tendai Biti, former finance minister of Zimbabwe, put it at the Gathering in Sandton on Thursday: "Unless you fought in the war, then you're not legitimate."
