If you're Zimbabwean, you’ve been through great pain leaving your home, says Grootes.

In doing all of this, you’ve reminded us of the pain that many of us feel about our home, about how you must never give one person or one family too much power.

In an upbeat tone, Grootes adds that Zimbabweans have a chance to take back their country. It will be hard and long says Grootes, but in the end, you could be happy.

If you do that, you will give us hope, hope that we too can build a country that we are proud of, that we can build a country where we are secure in knowing that our children have a future.
