The Big Noise and Other Noises

by Christopher Kudyahakudadirwe

From The frightening Big Noise of the approaching caterpillars sent by government to build a new dam; to the thundering Other Noises of the caterpillars, again sent by government to destroy their shacks; and to the graduates playing soccer wearing full regalia in the streets of Harare, life for the average citizen has never been the same. Then the 93-year-old president, Robert Mugabe, was forced to announce his resignation, and Tonderai, one of his secret agents skips the country fearing for his life. Of course, that was after another big noise that saw armoured cars and many people filling the streets of the capital, rejoicing that the dictator had been deposed. Before that there were other noises that frightened people away from their homes, but this time the noises that frightened people were made by those who had silenced the big noise. A confusion reigned. Graduates were jobless. People fled the country to other countries to become political as well as economic refugees.
