Then why doesn’t he see the writ­ing on the wall? Zim­babwe will not get the help it des­per­ately needs if he doesn’t abide by the peace agree­ment with the MDC and stop mur­der­ing his own peo­ple. He is a ruth­less killer who has bru­talised his own peo­ple for polit­i­cal gain. This is a fact. There is no other option Mr Mugabe. The west holds all the aces. You can scream, insult and call all the west­ern lead­ers names, but that will not change the sit­u­a­tion on the ground. The fact is the Zim­bab­wean peo­ple are suf­fer­ing. How can the greed and polit­i­cal agenda of one man be allowed to squan­der the rights of a peo­ple?

Zim­babwe, you should not allow this. When a man does not have respect for the rule of law or deci­sions taken by the courts of Zim­babwe, he is just unfit to rule. You are a peo­ple who have tasted suf­fer­ing for far too long. Stand up and demand an end to this dictator’s mad­ness and reclaim your beau­ti­ful coun­try. Mugabe is deter­mined to hold on to power. You should be deter­mined to stop him. The entire Zim­bab­wean ZANU-PF machin­ery can­not stop the will of the peo­ple. The thugs and mili­tia of ZANU-PF can­not stop you. No amount of pres­sure from Mugabe or his mil­i­tary stooges can stop you. You are the peo­ple of Zim­babwe. Your coun­try is not owned by one man.

The west­ern coun­tries are deter­mined not to bend one iota. Mugabe must leave the polit­i­cal scene for Zim­babwe to stand on its feet again. It is rather pathetic to see and hear some of Mugabe’s cab­i­net col­leagues defend­ing a mad man who has destroyed their coun­try. Where is polit­i­cal san­ity? Are these men aware that once Mugabe departs, they will be called to account?  They should learn from the demise of other dic­ta­tors across Africa. This is a man who seized white-owned farms and handed them out to his cronies with no agri­cul­tural skills, finance or equip­ment or even title deeds. This act ulti­mately wrecked com­mer­cial agri­cul­ture in Zim­babwe.

He unleashed vio­lence against his polit­i­cal oppo­nents which fright­ened tourists away. He forced min­ing com­pa­nies to aban­don explo­ration and invest­ment by seiz­ing 51% of their shares. He instructed the Reserve Bank to sim­ply print tril­lions of Zim­bab­wean dol­lars to keep him afloat and this resulted in soar­ing infla­tion and cur­rency depre­ci­a­tion.

Mugabe should know that he is rul­ing with­out a man­date. He has only 25% sup­port in Zim­babwe. That does not reflect pop­u­lar­ity. The peo­ple elected and voted in large num­bers for change. A change that would have seen Mor­gan Tsvan­gi­rai elected Pres­i­dent. Mugabe stole the elec­tions. This man has no shame. His greed and thirst for power has destroyed any sem­blance of moral san­ity in him. We do have a med­ical prob­lem here, No man in his right senses would take his peo­ple down the road of intol­er­a­ble suf­fer­ing. But Mugabe is just a man. He can be stopped indeed. There are those who can stop him. And they should do so in the name of the peo­ple. The peo­ple want change. They want an end to this polit­i­cal night­mare which has made them even poorer.

The west­ern gov­ern­ments are pre­pared to help Zim­babwe get back on its feet. They will not do so unless Mugabe is removed from the polit­i­cal land­scape of Zim­babwe. The peo­ple should rise up peace­fully and demand an end to Mugabe’s rule. The world will be watch­ing. The world would sup­port any peace­ful protest and Mugabe knows when that hap­pens, he has no choice but to depart. ZANU-PF or MDC, what­ever polit­i­cal affil­i­a­tions you have, it really doesn’t mat­ter. You are all vic­tims of this mad man’s deter­mi­na­tion to use any means at his dis­posal to stay in power. Don’t be fooled by his rhetoric. You should know by now that none of his rhetoric has pro­duced any­thing fruit­ful.

The peo­ple will con­tinue to suf­fer if they don’t stand up and stop this man. He is not pre­pared to hand over power with benig­nity and respect. He is a dic­ta­tor, and dic­ta­tors have a ten­dency to cling on to power come what may. Dic­ta­tors only look after their own inter­ests and the inter­ests of those who sup­port their mani­a­cal polit­i­cal agenda. (News Time Africa)
