With the UK leaving the EU build-up, I happened to get up very early one morning and saw a rerun with Sky-news’ Faisal Islam interviewing David Cameron. I watched in utter shock at how this journalist was giving Mr Cameron what I would call “The Gears” over his wanting to stay in. At points I half expected that they were about to slap each other or the cops would come rushing in to arrest Faisal. Amazed by this I continued to watch as Faisal relentlessly continued throwing words at Mr Cameron. It was as though Faisal was the Prosecuting Lawyer in a trial and Mr Cameron was the guilty Defendant sitting in the box on trial for the most atrocious crime.
It was at this point I realized that this must be freedom of speech. This must be that thing that all Zimbabweans fear doing. Speaking Freely or in Shona “Kutaura Wakasununguka” or to a crowd “Munofanirwa Kutaura Makasununguka”.
What does it mean to speak freely? Is it wrong to do so?
