Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) spokesperson, I would substantiate my claims that recent arrests of my party members constitute political persecution by the new government.
If I were Dausi, I would let the so-called persecuted party elites to be acquitted by the justice system because all accused persons are innocent until proven guilty by a competent court of law.
If I were the man of jaw-breaking phrases, I would realise that my party has no reason to worry about perceived political arrests as the courts will do their work and the accused will be vindicated if they are not guilty.
Oh yes, if I were my good friend Nick, I would not lose my sleep if my party members are being persecuted because the truth shall always prevail.
If only I were the DPP vocal publicist, I would hold my verbiage and wait for the courts to determine whether my party colleagues were arrested on criminal charges or political witch hunts.
If I were my former neighbour in Kanjedza, I would accept the harsh reality that when my party was in power, it felt ‘normal’ to arrest its critics, but now that the tide has changed, the same smells like political persecution. How times change!
That is if I were Nicholas Dausi. Unfortunately, I am just a soft-spoken Garry?
