The Frank guy really has an axe to grind with any and all white people associated with Zim cricket. His name and surname are familiar, I just can’t remember where I heard about him years ago. His twitter account is a war zone. In a twitter thread, he accuses Any Flower of racism and part of his “evidence “ is that Andy is using Muzarabani!!. If being racially abused is being afforded a lucrative Pakistan T20 and most likely an IPL contract (hopefully later this year), then please give me some of that racism, pump it directly into my veins
It's Mukuhlani.

Zimbabwe cricket's official twitter account and official website has posted an opposing article on this. That article uses very harsh and unprofessional tone against both Heath Streak and Firdose Moonda. This is not how an organisation should behave.

Even if they don't agree with what Moonda has written, there are surely better ways of stating it. Not like this.

I have seen that. I would imagine it could well be from the moral compass that is the judge jury and executioner that did the same thing to tatenda taibu when the George floyd story broke and chastised Taibus opinions on him

and jeeeez comparing a rapist to this is just sick. There is no comparison. The language is very coarse and not befitting of a so called professional organisation. There is no need for this whatsoever.
The real cowardly act is that there is nobody put their name to the article. Though i have a fair idea who wrote it

This is absolutely disgusting wtf man. Embarrassing beyond belief.

Nobody is defending Streak. The original Firdose article in question was a bit weird and did sugarcoat things a bit too much. And it was probably too soon.

But come on, look at this response man. This is abhorrent. This is supposed to be a professional major sports organisation, that gets millions of dollars of international funding, has several corporate sponsors, wtf. How can it seriously put out such a vile statement like this? It is playground stuff. How bitter can they be?!?!

This is absolutely embarrassing. Toxic. Why would anybody want to be employed by or work for these people any longer.

We need change.

They seem oblivious. As if this kind of article would do anything but make ZC look bad.

I don't really expect anything else from ZC. They are always content on creating an issue, particularly a racial one. No other board would ever act in this way.

One can understand why white players want nothing to do with ZC. They are basically being watched so intently to and the moment they slip up or do something wrong, that's it, they will be dragged through the mud.

CA didn't even treat Smith, Warner and Bancroft this badly.

Toxic and vindictive article. Even when we had ozias bvute and co they forgave vermeulen enough to kickstart his career when he had burned down the academy.

These lot just seem intent on settling old scores and kicking people when they are down.
The ZC is not a unifier and is alienating a lot of people and will continue to do so. The rape comment is just awful 🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺

Ja but we all know this @Zimbo 05. It's hardly news. That's why "we" have to be totally above reproach - being unfit, lazy, having poor discipline, dealing with dodgy Indian businessmen, taking coke, pissing it up and dopping all the time, womanising, smoking bladdy boom, kicking ducks, all that kuk can't be done by "us". Because ZC/ZanuPF will weaponise it, and use it against us! And we all KNOW that. Most of us have had our skins held against us for years - sometimes since childhood. Behaving like a nut is just giving them ammo.

I was telling my much older brother about this story and he calmly said, "if in doubt - WWIDSD - What Would Ian Douglas Smith Do?" :lol:

But there's truth in that - act properly FFS.
