Remember Barney Rogers? Only cricket aficionados and family members will recall a young left-hander playing four "Test" matches and 15 one-day internationals for his country a few years ago. Although bright and gritty, Rogers is not an exceptional batsman and can count himself fortunate to have appeared in a "Test" match. Deep into the night, a bunch of gangsters burst through the outer gates of the Rogers’s property, broke down the door of the house and, brandishing guns, threatened the occupants. Meanwhile these "war vets" were screaming the usual insults. In case anyone remains unaware of the nature of these brutish impostors, they are drug-crazed youths ruthlessly trained and brainwashed at ferocious camps to carry out violent acts on behalf of their masters in Harare. Their evil has been unleashed in the aftermath of Zanu-PF’s heavy defeat in the elections, a loss which, like the stagflation, the collapse of the economy and education and law and order and the courts and the health system, has been blamed on everyone else.
