The GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT: 31st JULY - A look at The people's aspirations.

Freedom
Dreams of a new nation that is full of opportunities for all. He
believes in a $100bn economy where everyone is prospering.
He seeks to undo the political rot in existence and replace it with a
transparent, tolerant and democratic governance system.
He wishes to see a nation where education has meaning and is affordable.


Lucinda
Pins her hopes on the success of her children. The widow believes all
her suffering will end when her children through education rise to the
higher offices of the land.
She years for freedom from politics in a nation where everything is
seen through political eyes.
She also wants government to shoulder the challenges that widows and
the HIV face.


Joshua
Aspires for an opportunity to be himself. Tired of having a father
(baJoshua) and a community of elders who are used to dictating to the
young, Joshua wishes to prove himself by following his own path.
He prays for peace in his father's polygamy marriage, peace in the
community and the rest of the nation.
Penniless and broke as are the majority of youths, he wants government
to avail funds so the youth can start income generating projects.


Janet
The housewife is suffering insecurity. Her ambition is to see her
family united. She seeks to regain control of her husband and his
assurance that he will never leave her.
Janet also vouchs for a return to her days of youth when her siblings
were not yet divided by politics. She wants the political fanaticism
to stop.

Tambu
He lives a retrospective life wishing he could turn back the hands of time.
He wants to be self reliant and not be seen as a burden by his family.
He wants to make Lucinda happy and make up for the disappointment he
caused her when he went for the Chimurenga war.


baJoshua
He wants full indigenisation and total black rule. He wishes Zimbabwe
will rise above the western countries and conquer.
He also believes the opposition must be eliminated so that everyone
including his brother Freedom will return to Zanu PF.
He prays that his son Joshua sees reason and returns to listen to him.


Danny
Danny wants nothing more than to make money and transform his community.
His opportunism and entrepreneurial genius has seen him soar high in
the community but he feels he needs to do more.
He's fed up with the lack of progress in the area and wants to change
the political culture to allow more progressive people into leadership
positions.

Will these people's aspirations be fulfilled? Is it what the GREAT
DISAPPOINTMENT is about?
