Zimbabwe Troubles May Bust Borders

Zimbabwe’s controversial re-election of President Robert Mugabe is bringing new pressure on South Africa to resolve the conflict, and raising military tensions with neighboring Botswana.

Leaders of the G-8 and several African nations scolded South African Prime Minister Thabo Mbeki at a meeting in Japan Tuesday, saying his efforts to mediate Zimbabwe’s political crisis are not working, the Mail & Guardian of South Africa reports.

With violence against the Zimbabwean opposition escalating, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are pushing for harsher sanctions.

However, some African leaders, including Mbeki, warned against sanctions they said could potentially destabilize Zimbabwe, resulting in civil war.

At a press conference during the G-8 summit, Tanzanian president and African Union chairman Jakaya Kikwete and President Bush agreed to an additional meeting on the subject in August.

“Not all African leaders are in a position to support sanctions at this time,” Bush aide Dan Price told allAfrica.com following the president’s meeting with Kikwete.

Botswana, which is situated on Zimbabwe’s southwestern border, has joined the fray by refusing to recognize Mugabe’s contested re-election.

“We have no problem with the people of Zimbabwe, but we have a problem with someone who will beat up other people on the run-up to elections,” foreign affairs minister Phantu Skelemani told Botswana’s Mmegi newspaper.

SW Radio Africa also reported that Botswana has deployed an Army brigade at its border, to prevent post-election violence — which has left 20 people dead since the June 27 run-off election — from spilling over from Zimbabwe.

Mugabe, however, saw the move as provocative.

“If there are some who may want to fight us, they should think twice. We don’t intend to fight any neighbors. We are a peaceful country, but if there is a country, a neighboring country that is itching for a fight, ah, then let them try it,” Mugabe said to supporters last week.

  1. IS ZIMBABWE BETTER OFF WITH A MEGALOMANIAC LEADER LIKE MUGABE OR A SUPPRESSIVE RHODESIA?

  2. NOBODY IN ZIMBABWE IS BETTER OFF NOW! RHODESIA LOOKED AFTER ALL THE PEOPLE.

  3. who ever may think zimbabwe was better with the suppressive rhodesia must go and see a pychiatric doctor . May be if you are being racial yes for the white people

  4. I am an ex-ZIPRA cadre who has been resident in South Africa since the 1980’s dissident era.I believe Zimbabweans have been let down by the entire international community as their plight matters not since then.It is naive for anyone to say Zimbabweans solve their own problems coz one needs external support to resolve any domestic political fiasco.
    One other thing is there is no dictator who has been single-handedly been deposed by civilians save only for Nikolai Ceausescu in Romania, all others have gone through foreign military intervention.What is it about Mugabe?His army has morale at the lowest and huge desertions.What he has now are untrained militias masquqreding as police and soldiers.
    ZIMBABWEANS ARE HUMANS IN NEED OF BEING FREED FROM A BEAST IN THE FORM OF ZANU(PF)/JOC.

  5. I think that Mugabe lives in a fantacy world of its own, if he cannot see that he is causing more damage than good to the country and its people then really he needs new specticales and a human brain. I wish i could go there and say my say

  6. MUGABE MUST GIVE UP BECAUSE HE IS KILLING ZIMBABWENS WITH HUNGER.
    HE MUST ACCEPT HE IS BEING DEFETED AND THIS AFFECT US IN SA AND ITS ENOUGHT WE CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE.

  7. United nation security council must help us, come into harare and drive mugabe away. he can even sent to exile for life. both young and adult are flowing away to the neighbouring countries just because of mugabe
    crisis.Amin of uganda is even better than mugabe

  8. mugabe should for benefit of everyone relinguish his power to anyone he can trust within his party and allow that person to negotiate with all MDCs. we are currently out Zimbabwe but still suffering like others back home.

  9. I cant believe the south african preseident is doing nothing
    he mR Mbeki has been in favour of Robert Mugabe all the time
    that is why he is not agreeing to sanctions
    he is just not man enough to admit this
    he he does not watch out south africa will follow the same direction
    Only God can solve this problem now
    Mr Robert Mugabe should feel assame of himself
    I cant believe his is even smilling
    In Gods eyes he is sinning for killing all the people

  10. I think smith’s regime was even better than what is happening in zimbabwe.how come we are even afraid of our relatives because of this mugabe who is sending his idiots to kill and toture inocent people of zimbabwe.mugabe must go now, we are fade up of him.

  11. IT LOOK,S LIKE EVEN THE G8 AND SADC LEADERS ARE AFRAID WITH MUGABE.IF ZIMBABWE HAD OIL THE G8 WOULD HAVE BEEN IN FOR FRONT SINCE THESE NO OIL IN THAT COUNTRY CALLED ZIMBABWE THE G8 CAN,T DO ANY THING.

  12. If ICC prosecutor seeks arrest of Sudan president why cannot he seek arrest of Mugabe. Mugabe has committed as many atrocities as al-Bashir … if not more?

  13. I will never understand why has Mugabe and his
    generals escaped being punished for their
    atrocities, for the suffering of their people.
    Mugabe, (we must think Zimbabwe) and his generals lead a wonderful life, food, lots of food, travel, entertainment, then suppression of their own people, yet they get away with it
    why why why

  14. Mugabe does’nt deserve to be called a president, he is a predator that kills his peaple for nothing. even if he can be given another chance to a be president he wont bring a change, he failed his country he was a president for more than 10 years hi didnt make zimbabwe rich. so he must let MDC rule the country.

  15. IF RHODESIA HAVE THEIR FORESIGHT AND NOT BLINDED WITH GREED AND DELUSIONS OF RACIAL SUPERIORITY, IF THE BRITISH PLAYED IT RIGHT TO CORRECTED THEIR PAST MISTAKES OF COLONIAL STUPIDITY, ZIMBABWE AND THE REST OF AFRICA SHOULD BE A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE TODAY. IF AFRICANS WERE TRAINED AND EDUCATED AND GIVEN THE FREEDOM TO SHARE THE GOVERNMENT EVEN IN A MINORITY RULE BEFORE GIVEN INDEPENDENCE.IF INFRASTRUCTURES WERE DONE, COMPULSORY EDUCATION AND HEALTH CARE WERE GIVEN PRIORITY,INTEGRATING THE CULTURE INTO WESTERN MENTALITY INSTEAD OF SACKING THE CONTINENT WITH THEIR NATURAL RESOURCES AND CHEAP LABOR, WE WILL NOT HAVE THESE WORLD PROBLEMS TODAY. I THINK SPAIN,GERMANY,AND PORTUGAL ARE BETTER COLONIZERS THAN GREAT BRITAIN. SANCTIONS DON’T WORK ,THERE IS NO GUARANTEE FOR MILITARY INTERVENTIONS AS IN THE CASE OF IRAQ. AFRICA NEEDS AN ECONOMIC AND MILITARY UNION WITH ONE CURRENCY LIKE EU SO THEY COULD HELP EACH OTHER AND SACK THE UNDESIRABLE LEADERS.FREEDOM FROM WANT,FREEDOM OF SPEECH, FREEDOM OF RELIGION AND FREEDOM FROM FEAR SHOULD BE OUR WORLD CREED.

  16. now is the time, young captains, yes the future generals. to start to clean there hands and put on there clean uniforms. unstained by blood corruption and greed .and be be rid of the dragon with seven heads. the lord has removed the cloak of santans brothers and exposed them be swift thrust your sword and all will rejoice and you the the hand of god shall be rewarded with blessings from your brothers and sisters.

  17. Mr Mugabe needs to be told that ZANU(PF) truthfully means “ZIMBABWEANS ARE NOW UPSET (PURE FACT)” and that is not a lie. We want the truthful MDC to rule and make a change for the better. Instead ZANU (PF) has caused a problem to the economy. It is so bad that its local currency is the MDC of the world i.e. “MOST DEVALUED CURRENCY”.

  18. Im worried about your presindant Tswanerai,s making tacks with 2 dadly davils lick RG & TM.Thy will jast finish with him jast the way thy did to J Nkomo.RG won this own rase he mast do wht ever he likes about Zim

  19. I think world is scared of mr. no change in zimbabwe because nobody is taking action. Mr. Bush and Brown and Mugabe was the winner

  20. What on earth would be the purpose of sanctions? How does this change the mind-set of a megalomaniac and murderer. If sanctions are applied, all the people of Zimbabwe will suffer even more! They are suffering greatly as it is. The president and his henchmen will not feel anything, since they already have money and supplies in their coffers to weather any storm. And if not they will just kill, steal and demand it from the innocent people of the country. If sanctions need to be applied, then apply
    directly to Mugabe and his entourage.

  21. Thank u Mr. Mugabe I support u through thick n thin because nobody wants to face u n this makes king of the world. Mr. Bush n Brown tried to face but u outstand n now its Mmegi n I am really sure that u will outstand him. GOOD LUCK Mr. Mugabe I wish u more 10 years as the president of zimbabwe

  22. Mugabe is not harmful,I dont believe that only one man can hold the entire population hostage. Zimbabweans are not united which makes it easier for Mugabe not to leave the throne.To ensure that the MDC does not represent Britain in Zimbabwe, let both parties work closely with the Zanu PF without empty fears.

  23. Poverty and Slavery mentality will always think Smith regime was better…there is no such.Dont be like the Israelites who prefered to go back Egypt while God is progressing them to the promise land.
    The road to success is humpy Zimbabweans must never give up, they should use everything in their possession to make it happen. Backwards never,forward Africa goes through thisck and thin.

  24. people are saying mugabe is the liberater from white ruler,that is not true NKOMO IS THE ONE who driver white away.nothing that mugabe done only killing NDEBELES helped by britain to rigged 1980 vote.britain is the one that caused all these mess that happening in ZIM.UN is good as mugabe they cant stop by CHINA & RUSSIA to sanction mugabe because UN know that both those countries are batchering people to their countries, mugabe took tactics from them. mbeki is was bribed on 2002 votes so he cant oppose mugabe.AN union leaders majority are thugs so thugs always support each other.mugabe dont even have strong army like NKOMO used to have,he use these stupit smelling BUMS militia.but all his supporters they must know the end is soon.BRITAIN ARE REGRETING FOR GIVING POWER TO mugabe.

  25. Ask the ordinary people of zimbabwe whether they were happier under the Smith and a white government, whatever its drawbacks my be, they the barbaric government of Mugabe and black rule? They had work, they never starved, they had peace, they weren’t constantly in danger of being beaten up and killed on a mere whim, they had courts where they could find justice for murder and they were independant, they had chiefs and elders who could intercede for them, their children were educated (in fact the old Rhodesia had the highest literacy rate in Africa) they had free medical services, they lived their daily lives in safety for 99% of the time. AND ASK THEM NOW … WAS BLACK RULE WORTH IT?
    ARE THEIR LIVES BETTER OFF NOW THAN THEY WERE UNDER SUPPOSEDLY WHITE RACIST RULE? … And their misery and suffering goes on with no end in sight! But, of course, the rest of the world knew what was best for them. God help them all, the wonderful brave ex-Rhodesian black and white people of Zimbabwe, a hell on earth.

  26. In 50 years time Africa will be exactly the same as it is now.

    Colonisation merely interupted an inevitable process of linear decpretitude.

    Mugabe is very popular amongst Africans because he says in public what they only say in private. His strongest supporters are African leaders !

  27. Africans are the biggest racists in the world.

    Thats why so many Africans love Mugabe. He is their racist hero.

  28. mugabe should live the stool only thats can make zim to be in better i only say mugabe is a killer so pupuil who kill they deserve to be killed because in the bible says if you kill with a sword you will be killed by a sword the is no way if mugabe is alive because has spoiled so many things

  29. Shaka down through Mzilikazi to Lobengula The Matabele tribes have beaten the people of that nation to death fortheir own gain and Mugabe is the fruit of their loin. He will continue to hand out the same punishment until he is physically restrained. This is not a black white racist colonialization arguement any more it is simply a Matabele that does not want to relinquish power and will hold on to the bitter end at any cost to his own people. In the past the Indunas who went down from Umgungunhlovo would be killed if they did not return to the nest with a human head and would kill their hunting partners to keep their own lives. I give you Bob Mugabe in a nut shell. God will not help in this matter as God supports the righteous and if Mugabe feels strongly enough that he is right then he shall be supported. Reason and action are the only tools that will topple him. Isolate and arrest him by surrounding and closing in as you would attack a Lion. I too want my homeland back!!

  30. we love Zimbabwe,we our leaders,we love our indipendence and above all we love our land.so let those who clam to care[british and allies] about Zimbabweans came directly and talk to our trusted leaders.Why send someone else[Mbeki]?we do not mind working with the whites but ours interests first………..

  31. As a young man who has since left his place of birth and moved overseas i have no sympathy for the people of zimbabwe. they have asked for this situation and this is what they want. The power to remove this man is in our own hands. There comes a stage when we must be held accountable and accept the blame. We want change from a one party state and lifetime leadership but the opposition party does not offer us that. Morgan Tsvangirai has been the leader and lost his bid for election three times now. Where else do you see that in the world where democracy is alive and well. We need new blood with new ideas and walso have the ability to take Mugabe on and play the game of politics with him and that man will unite a seriously divided nation. As he will gain the respect of all.

  32. as all ways any county in africa what goes independent will go the same old route of one party states bad managentment bad debts and curruption same old story i am afraid just when will the west learn? ps my family or at least my mum are ex zims

  33. Mugabe must get mooving coz his killing the people of Zimbabwe end i know why he doesn’t want to let go it’s becose he done enough to the people of zimbabwe, if he loses the presidency the people ojf zimbabwe will kill him and i want the people of zimbabwe to go home.

  34. PEOPLE OF ZIMBABWE YOUR ARE IN PAIN, RID YOUR SELF OF THESE VULTURES WHO EAT THE FLESH OF YOUR SISTERS AND BROTHERS AND DECERCRATE YOUR ANCESTORS. MILATERY, THINK OF CEASER IN ROME FOR THE THE WILL OF ROME THE GOOD OF THE PEOPLE THEY WILL SHOWER YOU IN ROSES KISS YOUR FEET AND BATHE YOU IN OILS AND YOU WILL SAVE ZIMBABWE.TELL THEM, GO TAKE THERE LOVED ONES BUT GO NOW AS TIME MOVES AND THEY SHALL BE JUDGED AS THERE CALLABARATORS.THE WOLRD HAS THE POWER, IT IS THE LIGHT TO THE PATH TO THE ALFA & OMEGA

  35. The Pesident of Zimbabwe Mgabe is a criminal and has become a dictator of that country and defied the Democratic process of government and he should be punished by the UN SECURITY COUNCIL AND HEAVY SANCTIONED SHOULD BE BROUGHT AGAINST HIM.

  36. people of zimbabwe unite, you have nothing to lose but your chains and poverty. the solutin to the zimbabwean crisis does not lie with mbeki,au or the un.its in the hands of zimbabweans.we are the ones feeling the pinch.mugabe can stop tsvangirai and biti from delivering zimbabwe today, but, he will never stop 2million zimbabweans who will rise and take to the streets with one voice.there is power in numbers.a week of such protests will crumble the old man and will bring back the so much desirable zimbabwe.

  37. As a white south african born in Durban,it saddens me to have personally experienced the pain and suffering in Zimbabwe by especially my black brothers and sisters while the rest of the World does absolutely nothing to put an end to the Dictators reign of terror! I applaud Ian Khama for his honourable stand against this tyrant and at the same I say to Thabo Mbeki – “be ashamed of yourself” you are a disgrace to Southern Africa through your lack of leadership.

  38. in all honesty the zimbabwean situaion is very complex and only individuals from there can comment it it as they are the ones directly exposed to it. the free media is bias and anti mugabe and all expats are nt oblectviveto the situation, despite all that being said not even the staunchenest supoters of the ruling party can honestly back the ruling ZANU PF party without bias, both the MDC and ZANU PF are just powere hungry and the zimbabwean people are just desperate for change, not knowing wat it is goin to bring fro them.

    its been said “better the devil you know than the one you dont know” zimbabweams are so blinded by stagnirari ( however you spell that) and his so called movement for democratic change, the reality of the situation is that mutambara, ncube and his goones are potentially just as bad as mugabe if not worse… i just wish we would all think in terms of watz best for the country rather than ourselves… weve all been through to much

  39. the worst of a black leader is still better than white domination. to hail with ian smith and his so called better government.
    this may be called a moment of disorder in african history, however we should be allowed to write our own history through mistakes and corrections. mugabe is still one of the great horoes of the continent.

  40. being white, born and bred in zim.knee rhodesia,i can say that,having lived in rsa 4 20 years and now in eire,4 6 years,that the zim. people,of all creed and denomination,are amongst the nicest and most hospitable people anyone could ever hope to meet.how a despot such as mugabe can be allowed to inflict such pain and misery is beyond all comprehension.it boils down 2 2 things.firstly greed ,secondly,mental instability.the world as a whole,doesnt care as there is no immediate wealth to be had,such as oil.how it is that that warmonger bush enters the equation is unbelievable.the only thing he and the zim.people have in common is the colour of oil,and if u dont have oil then u may as well be white.the only consolation zim.now has is that mugabwe will one day die.that is not a religous thought,but one day satan will die.is that a religous thought?.mugabe needs to be taken, in chains as befitting a rabid dog,to geneva,and tried for his many atrocities against his people,and not be allowed to run to a save haven like idi amin 4 example.zim.has the world 2 thank 4 its present predicament.long live zim.

  41. Quoting Emmanuel…”the worst of a black leader is still better than white domination. to hail with ian smith and his so called better government.
    this may be called a moment of disorder in african history, however we should be allowed to write our own history through mistakes and corrections. mugabe is still one of the great horoes of the continent.”

    Are you on Drugs son? If you calling him a hero, when he is killing his own people, you are obviously in need of some serious help….

  42. Mugabe had some good things to the country we cannot condem him 100%, but the issue hear is about freedom after giving power mdc. However the colonial effect is what is affecting the country right now.Tis is a lessonto the next person to the high position so that you don’t have to abuse power like what Mugabe did.The poeple hear who are pupets are Simba & auther

  43. the problem in zimbabwe is not really political, but that of leadership. Mugabe will forever be remembered as one of the greatest leaders from africa, but then he failed on a succession plan. on the other hand Tsvangirai doesn’t have the qualities and mental and academic capacity to lead a country that boast of the highest literacy rate in africa, with his o’level qualification. in short zimbabwean when they vote they vote not for the best candidate but simply protest against mugabe.

  44. you ever supports Mugabe must go to hell, he is the african version of hitler, he needs to be shot

  45. No, well-informed or educated person can ever give his support to an old greedy Fool
    like Mugabe, and if so there is no difrence between Mugabe and Adolf Hitler!!! Think twice!

  46. Politics is a dirty game. Looks like Mugabe & Grace, Tsvangirai & Susan might be headed for many lunches and dinners afterall! I can’t be bothered with politics honeslty!!

  47. Bright Matonga has gone strangely quiet. Hows that, Tsvangirai his boss!! Never say never. Just hope they do not sabotage Morgan. I don’t trust that lot one bit. Am getting ready to go home, must admit, I was a coward, but I thank all those who soldiered on.

  48. News You Might Have Missed * Vol. 7, No. 37

    Important but overlooked news from around the world. *This Week* – “Transition towns” tackle climate change – U.K. takes cue…

  49. Zimbabweans have suffered a lot, it is surprising that Mugabe stil refuses to free them,he is behaving like a spoiled child, he is a shame and a stubbon figure. I wish he could be tried for the abuses he has spearheaded in the country and for the deaths he has caused, otherwise he will die a bitter death.

    Denga clan, Chacks

  50. Mugabe RG is letting us down. Iam a in SA. I want to go home to work for my own country.If possible this man get Saddam’s treatment. MaZimbabweans atambura nokuda kwemurume uyu.Ko haasi kuona kutambura kuri kuita vanhu here,munhu uyu haana vanhu pamoyo.

  52. MUGABE IS AN MURDEROUS SWINE WHO THINKS THE PEOPLE OF ZIMBABWE OWE HIM.SMITH WAS MUCH BETTER THAN THIS MMONSTER.WE NEVER ASKED HIM TO LIBERATE US INTO POVERTY HUNGER AND MISERY.HE ONLY LIBERATED HIMSELF,HIS PARTY AND HIS CRONIES INTO THE ILL GOTTEN RICHES THAT THEY HAVE.
    MR SMITH MUST BE LAUGHING IN HIS GRAVE.MAY HE REST IN PEACE.ALL HE PROPHESISED ABOUT
    MUGABE HAS COME TO PASS

  55. why do they have to vote for Mugabe while he is letting them go to bed with hungry stomach.

  56. i am in South Africa because of Mugabe .It`s not lyke we want to be in diaspora ,we are running away from hunger .The best sollution is to drag him from the position and drop him in a grave the same way he is killing people with hunger.Mugabe must go!!!

  57. well this man “mugabe’they made him,when in those days joshua nkomo was saying that man was not going to unite the nation they thought he was made.look now how it is very difficult to take out that wish out of power.he destroyed the kami ruins where our ancestors used to go and ask for the rain,but they still a chance if he can ask to be forgivern,the gods can turn that curse into a blessing.God and gods have not forseken the zimbabweans especial ndebeles

  61. we would like to thank all British people for taking care of zimbabweans in this hard economyof zimbabwe

  62. i have just witnessed the soldiers of our country and some hooligans beating people in the the streets and breaking shop windows and robbing people holdind any thing from cash to phones to food. so i ask if the un gets this message to step in. also i gather that tommorow they will be at it again till maybe end of the week

  63. Please Morgan, do NOT allow this despot to trick you. He is no longer President of Zim and must never again be refErred to as such. Help will come soon but please do not let this IDI AMIN off the hook! Mugabe MUST stand trial and be held accountable for all his crimes including the killing tens of 1000’s of his own people as well as for destroying Africa’s breadbasket simply because of his own ego. PRIDE COMES BEFORE THE FALL!!!

  64. To think that we once saw him as our leader a man of wisdom but now we see where the wisdom is,you can steal as much as you because it is only material value.The people you killed were our fathers and brothers raped our mothers and sisters that we cannot forget for generation to come we will remember and to think of what is going to happen to your loved ones,I dare not try because it is slow and painful,and you the man that disrespects GOD saying only he can judge you or take you I think your generals lied to you.Remember TUPAC sang a song with those words now he was a gangster,you were a President now you are a nobody and you cant even be a wannabe because you are a murderer and the devil your master awaits you and I cant wait to come home.We Zimbabweans living abroad have learnt alot that rebuilding Zims wont take long.You are a stiff naked fool you think you are cool watch out someone is going to pour hot water on you

  65. I wonder what is going to happen to your CIO when you gone.Do these brothers think that you are going to live forever.Aa koma soldier do you remember you CODE OF HONOR to protect your nation against brutality now you are the cause,stop protecting that thief and his forty thieves.{Ali Baba and 40 thieves}and your cave is in China so you say open china and china open,you put gold,diamonds,ivory,everything to gain favor and China give you gun,now gun cant cure illness.The medicine China give you is going to kill our people so they can come and live there because they over populated and need space,so China please know that we are still going to come back and when we do so you must be gone and please take the mugabes with.

  66. are there no better leaders than Mugabe,tsvangarai,mutambara in zimbabwe?
    -these three guys are hard to understand each other therefore they have to go and sit at their houses and be ordinary zimbabweans.
    -we need pepole who will compromise the negotiatians for the sake of lifes in zimbabwe.

  67. Enough of this ‘effects of colonialism’ holding Africa back; and responsible for Africa’s present woes. For God’s sake the Romans colonised the entire known world for 2,000 years!! Are we all still suffering from this? Almost every country on earth has colonised some or other country. Get over this bulls**t.
    Mugabe is a bitter, angry soul, who, though is highly ‘degreed’ has absolutely no regard for his fewllow man. Being the ‘liberator’ of Zimbabwe does not mean a thing. The people themselves liberated Zimbabwe…and then placed it back into chains the British would not have dreamed possible. Personal greed and lust for power are what keeps Mugabe and Zanu PF in control.

  68. As a white person born in zimbabwe i remember this country as beatiful,safe,peaceful and friendly. Now it is ravaged by cholera,racked with starvation,repression of thought,80% unemployment. I wonder if r.m. has ever thought that he cannot live forever and that one day god will be his judge.

  69. Mugabe is cruel.what new things can he bring at 84 after 28 years in power. he found things better than they now are. The only thing he tried was education only upto about 1999 there after he even ravaged the sector again. Much of his policies are only to satisfy his ego. We cant reside on history for ever. Even today we know Uruguay used to be a world cup soccer heavy weight in the old days when the tourney was in its infancy, but who today would put his money on Uruguay and ignore the force of Brazil,Argentina,Italy,Germany or even Nigeria or Cameroun to name but a few. Let me say noone, the reason being the world has changed and people are clever enough to realise history is there not for us to dwell on it but to draw lessons from it. Mugabe now uses history to cling to power when he knows he has nothing to offer Zimbabweans for the future.He just wants to die in power for reasons best known to him. His hands drip off blood of innocent citizens who dared bring to light their different views about how to govern Zimbabwe.l wonder how and where he gets the guts to call himself the people’s legitimately elected president when he actually knows the events that came to pass in his ill fated reign off terror on fellow country man spearheaded by the army.

  70. People die in Zim of disease and hunger.Some die in queues(banks and shops) queuing for money and food.Mugabe has no answer to this and does not even comment. Peolpe go to work they dont get paid, he is silent. When they get paid its nuts,he is silent.Even the government now charges services in forex,people are paid in Zim dollar and through the bank where money is virtually impossible to get, he is tight lipped. The MSU recently held a graduation ceremony(on the 5th of December 2008) and requested R400 upfront from graduates plus R950 for regalia (R1350 in total). My drive here is that among those graduands were staff members who had not been paid the November salaries but they too were expected to pay this money.The salaries which they had not received were pegged in Zim dollars and would not surpass R100. So what is the meaning of this. Its like l am a baker and my salary cant buy a loaf of bread.Mugabe is not even concerned about that. In fact he pretennds all is well.Workers(teachers,doctors and nurses) strike, he sends an army and says they want to drive a western agenda. Is it a Western agenda that peolpe want food and shelter.Mugabe simply wants to die in power not that he has a solution for any problem Zimbabwe has. All those top government officials have latest cars and cash in excess yet the ordinary person is suffering. They are using the army to supress and instill fear in the people so that they continue to impose themselves on them. Only God knows. About power sharing l dont think SADC is being reasonable to suggest that the Home Affairs ministry be shared while ZANU has Defence to itself and also knowing fully well that MDC won the elections. Its unfair. The MDC are actually stooping low to engage in talks with a loosing party which only took advantage of the fact that the transiton period required their cooperation for handover takeover and so decided to stay in power since the incoming party would expose much of the illicit happenings that had gone unabated for so long.Why cant Africa learn from America. Look at Bush Obama transition. Zimbabweans will eat history, Mugabe thinks. ZANU is ZImbabwe he thinks, anything against ZANU-PF is unpatriotic he things.What a shame. L think age is playing its part.He should just go.

  71. One thing baffles me about SADC. Lets take this step by step. During the first round of elections in Zimbabwe before the much condemned re-run, SADC sent its observer team to Zimbabwe and the team did not like the way the results were being announced and it raised the concern with SADC. They reported this back to SADC.Finally results came after more than a month and a re-run was called. Hell was unleashed in the days leading to the run off. SADC observer team advised that the re-run be postponed as conditions were not conducive to free and fair elections.They gave their reasons which were free for all to see.Some other bodies like the UN echoed the same sentiments but it fell on deaf ears and the election went ahead albeit as a one man race since the opposition had withdrawn. Immediately afterwards came the summit in north Africa and Mugabe was quickly sworn in two hours after the announcement of results just in time for him to attend the summit. Who can explain why the counting which completed in over a month initially just took 48 hours now with all factors being the same.Only Bob knows. At the summit SADC surprisingly endorsed Mugabe against the advice and report of its own commission. On Botswana and Zambia seemed honest with Mugabe.Then came Sandton where SADC ignored the fact that ZANU-PF had taken control of Defence uncontested and ruled that the Home Affairs ministry be shared,the MDC said African leaders were being cowards in facing Mugabe.Tsvangiai rightfully stated that the SADC position was biased.Mbeki quickly bemoaned Tsvangirai of believing that ‘friends far off can help Zimbabwe’s cause while neighbours can not.’Then came the SADC tribunal ruling in Namibia which ruled that the 78 white farmers be left on their farms. Mugabe said that was a “ruling in futility” and promised to grab more land. SADC never commented. The issue now is Tsvangirai is right. Mugabe does not respect SADC decisions yet only when it suits him does he feign compliance with its decisions.

  72. please’
    the people of zimbabwe have to understand that we are the big fools.
    they can reach us at anytime through their political strategy.firstly,they keep us hungary,so when you get some food,your brother automaticly will becomes you worse enemy.

  73. The people of Zimbabwe have suffered long enough but the problem is if you are heard opposing Mugabe you simply disappear and die.Now not many supports Mugabe.They fear to be killed.Lots of people have lost their lives and their properties.I am a victim.

  74. Mugabe is just another practical example of what our African Leaders are doing to Africa. To me Mugabe is very intelligent. But what he is doing to his own people is truly evil. Rite now South Africa is been threaten by Cholera. Hundreds of people have already die. What is the duty and goal of the intervening different parties. To me this guys looks as if they are afraid of Mugabe. I say Iam available for assissination post of Mugabe. He must be taken out. Peaceful or forcefully. He is not the only one. There are many African Leaders that are doing what Pres. Mugabe does. I say middle finger to ZANUPF. go 2 hell suckers. Your sinking this continent.

  75. Mugabe should go now. He should apologise on National television for 28 years of misrule.A catologue of crimes,murder,starvation,fear,repression,violence,hyperinflation,unemployment. – he presides over a government that is no longer democratically elected by the people – clinging onto power like a man hanging onto the edge of a cliff by his fingernails. What is r.m. thinking about. It is never too late for r.m. to step away from power. Let zimababweans rebuild their country now.

  76. Free education,health,removal of racialism,nepotism, corruption etc.were promises made, but not fulfilled. Investors emigrated so who pays much needed taxes if there is no production or employment? Production determines the value of any currency, but in Zimbabwe it now goes for a “haircut” to remove zeros. UZ created many professional doctors, lawyers, teachers etc.(many of whom have emigrated). With present cholera problem these doctors would’ve eased the situation, as they played a major part in assisting regional countries when they had medical epidemics.

  77. all that zimbabweans need is the hand of God , he is the one who can put peace in this country , many people are dying , christians its time to declare the word of God on this country . this is a year of flfillment but for zimbabwe it has been a year on pain , God is looking for someone to stand and save the people of Zimbabwe boldly.zimbabwe is a blessed country , the grace of God is upoun Zimbabwe .its time the word of God fanifest in this country
    our beloved zimbzbwe you are blessed

  78. I don’t think the people in zimbabwe are supporting Mugabe. They know what will happen to them if they show any opposition.It doesn’t bear thinking about. Is there an impression that the military bosses are keeping Mugabe in place so that when the end comes for this horrible gargoylian terror regime and the implosion boils over and the writing is on the wall – the regime will be pointing the finger at only one person. Mugabe is holding the poisoned challice and nobody else wants to take it.

  79. i believe Morgen T is a traitor if no also a Zanu PF supporter,honestly after the first round of elections he new what was going to happen in second round.People of Zimbabwe died even before MDC was formed,the reason to boycot because people were dying its actually was an insult to the people.Zimbabwe is a country with an educated people to read all the moves that are happening right now.i believe its better for him now to join hands with Mugabe otherwise he will never taste being a president in all his life.the further he went was to become a ZCTU president.Leaders come and go.
    His boycot means we lay him side to side with the likes of the late Dumbutshenas,Tekeres and Shakespear Maya.Morgen the Zimbabwean people are now cleaver.The people they may not like Mugabe but what can they do if they are led by Untrstworth people like Morgen,people wrer determined to make a change but Tsvangirai you betrayed the people,which we new from start that Tsvangirai is also a Zanu PF stoogey,a man used as a window of Democrcy by Zanu,which is good for Zanu cuse as it is the world can see they might say all thing about Mugabe,but trely Tsangirai is given all the room to what he wants which i believe some people were never given.

  80. Mugabe continues to cite Britain for Zimbabwe’s woes. Gordon Brown should grasp the mettle and reconstitute and reconvene the Lancaster House Talks of nearly 30 years ago.
    From there RM would be impeached and a civilised goverment established in Zimbabwe.

  81. Mr. Mugabe and his regime have become a laughing matter, but, how I FEEL FOR THE PEOPLE
    OF ZIMBABWE, your life is truly awful and
    I feel the same empty feeling for the poor
    ACTIVISTS THAT HAVE GONE MISSING, WHERE ARE
    THEY NOW, HOW MUCH MORE MUST THEY SUFFER IN
    THE HANDS OF THIS TERRIBLE GOVERNMENT.

    The situation in Zimbabwe is a repeat of the
    following. Hitlers cruelty
    Appartheid in South Africa
    PLEASE PLEASE WHERE AND WHEN WILL THE HELP
    COME FOR THE PEOPLE OF ZIMBABWE PLEASE HELP
    THEM SOMEONE SOMEBODY HOW MUCH MORE MUST THEY
    SUFFER PLEASE SOMEBODY HELP THEM

  82. From Zambia and Bishop Tutu clear words could have been heard.
    Let such words become a common outcry of responsible Africans, so that the dignity of Africa can be regained!
    Let the down to earth concern of non-selfish Africans become an aid and help action that has the dimensions of amazing the world!
    Rise to your real size, Africans at heart!

  83. I was born in Selukwe, my grandparents lived in Gwaru. What a beautifull country i remember fondly. Pity that Mugabe has ruined it and other afican leaders stand with arms folded. But as they say, its africa and they will solve it the ” afican ” way……and we know what means !

  84. I am a zimbabwean leaving in South Africa for the past two years.And before now I was staying in Botswana. We are tired of moving from one country to another running away from yhe Mugabe regime.
    We are one people with somuch education than we can not make use of anywhere. In every country we go we are looked downupon. We are suffering at both the hands of Mugabe and all the so called African leaders who take sides with this dictator. I wonder what the following organisations are ment to represent SADC,OAU andUN. Zimbabwean have suferd to the extrems maybe we now need the EU.

  85. Very few zimbaweans support Mugabe , the numbers seen at rallys are of peple who have been promised food or forced to go through violence . Rhodesia may not have been the greatest social enviroment ever but it provided basic neccesities , but its social enviroment made all that count for nothing , and Mugabes tyranny and brutality has made independance and freedom in 1980 count for nothing as well

  86. what more does he realy want to see.as a human being and as a man with dignity he should give-up and let other’s save zimbabwiens, pride iz not gonna take him any were,this is a very painfull situation were people die like chickens,its time for the whole nation to pray for zimbabwe.

  87. please,please Mugabwe must leave people of zimbabwe to enjoy peace, let him regine and give the power to talented zimbabwe citizen.

    I am writing in Gudele(Juba) Southern Sudan

  88. DEPRESSION–AN EPIDEMIC IN ZIMBABWE
    Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress. But when anxiety becomes an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situations, it is not only a burden but it also makes you physically ill and depressed. Depression is a mental disorder characterized by a pervasive low mood, low self-esteem, and loss of interest or pleasure in normally enjoyable activities. Zimbabwe has had ten years of the majority of people pervaded with low mood, esteem no food, and gross loss of interest or pleasure in that which normal. Cultural structures that create a people completely have been severed and so many people suffer from depression in Zimbabwe–including the architects of the terrible situation prevailing in Z’S. I am sure that even them have become mad in one form or another—because of the intense terrible results of their decision making. Physical illnesses are easy to diagnose and provide figures e.g. cholera, aids, malaria. The number of cholera deaths according to the World Health Organization the death toll from the five-month epidemic stands at 3,759, with 70,000 reported infections. Experts say these figures, which have already surpassed the UN’s worst-case scenario, are a fortnight out of date.

    Mental depression is so difficult to come out in the open and be cited as above with cholera . The bio-psycho-social upheavals that have been created by the political situation of the current leadership must not underestimate the level of mental imbalances that have occurred. There is need for relevant disciplines to look at how best this can be addressed if and when real change comes–(seeing that Mugabe is not respecting reality ) Birthday display is the latest of many signals that the Zanu-PF has not and is not intending to respect the power-sharing agreement. As is usual the money for the parties and the resources for the party are forced out from people against their will. What more bad taste can we expect when a birthday is luxuriously celebrated when so many have died of cholera, schools and hospitals are not functioning. How much stress is being created by this? What is ironic is that Mugabe who rants continuously about the Evils of The WEST continues to celebrate Birthdays–a very foreign concept.

    I hate to think of the implications of the current psycho social painful issues that have happened–from the breaking up of families and ending of moral cultural systems that make a people , citizens unable to care for their dying relatives and mourn their dead because relatives are scattered throughout the world looking for a life and working to sustain those at home. People unable to love their neighbors because there is no sharing of anything any more—-None can ask for salt from their neighbors, people are now going to the chigayo at night so that none sees they have sadza–only a few observations but however things that formed the fabric have gone.
    Serious research is required into these issues in order to prepare for seeking ways of addressing this epidemic and I emphasize EPIDEMIC. Reconciliation must not mean people get away with their evil deeds–justice has to prevail and those responsible must answer for their deeds—-otherwise history will judge us with contempt!

  89. COMO UNICO R.MUGABE SERA BUENO SERA EL DIA EN QUE SATANAS SE LO LLEVE DE AYUDANTE,

  90. mugabe should give up he will not win i say this for my family who is in zim right now mubabe is scared that is why he says his country is a peacful one but it is not it is horror to see people lose the houses and there family mugabi is a chiken that is why he forced people yo vote for him because he dosent want to go to prison for the rest of his life

  91. mugabe should give up he will not win i say this for my family who is in zim right now mubabe is scared that is why he says his country is a peacful one but it is not it is horror to see people lose the houses and there family mugabi is a chiken that is why he forced people yo vote for him because he dosent want to go to prison for the rest of his life

  92. What is wrong with the world.?
    When Hitler started to take over Europe, the rest of the world did nothing.
    After he had gobbled up half of Europe, the world still failed to respond to his evil actions.
    What is the world waiting for . They have no guts. If Zim had oil, then maybe the world would take some action. The world stands by and does not want to get involved. Meanwhile a maniac holds the world to ransome and rapes and plunders his country and his people, and the rest of the world does not give a damn. This is indeed a sorry day for democracy. The free world should hang it’s head in shame.
    Justin Figov. 29th.March.2009.

  93. mina i think the time has come that mugabe must face his fate because the blood of the ndebeles is upon his shoulders and the british must not try to feel sorry for the people of zim because they are the ones who helped mugabe to kill innocent ndebeles,ifb the power was given to the right person they knew zim would be a peaceful country to stay,he must face his doings .

  94. THANX TO THE CHIVALROUS FIGHTERS WHO FOUGHT FOR OUR HARD WON INDEPEDENCE.VIVA PRESIDENT MUGABE AND OTHER GALLANT SONS AND DAUGHTERS. PROUDLY ZIMBABWEAN IN SOUTHAFRICA[STUDYING]

  95. Utterly perplexed by those with the gits to celebrate ZIMBABWE”S independence.Honestly speaking there is nothing to celebrate about .People have perished at the hands of a dictator.Health sector has crumbled totaly and in dire need of resuscitation.Education system in need of an emergency overhaul before it becomes history like Chimutengwende,Zvobgo,Manyika E,Gezi b,Hunzvi Hitler and all other like minded cadres history has already condemned.SEVERAL people have already departed due to starvation whilist Mugabe hangs around amongst the world”s stinking rich .Our own currency now defunct,hence resorted to using the $US and R SA.Half of the country” s population in diaspora.Most fled political persecution and abject poverty.Sooner tha later you shall be enjoying the Abyss.

  96. Guys just know that its not by powernor by mighty that we reach the promised Land of Canaan(prosperous zimbabwe) neither is it by blaming politicians that we may justify our selves President Mugabe Nor Prime minister Tsvangirai are not the answers to our problems but God is.Remember that dawn is the darkest hour of the day yet it will be only a few moments before day light embraces the world with a mighty light.We are only a few inches from total and grant happiness.

    baba paurosi

  97. mugabe, give me the honour to thank you for lewding zimbabwe, true success and difficulty,but jus for the sake of the majority,PLEASE!STEP DOWN!Taneta newe kani!ahhhhhhh!!haunetiwo here??

  98. Sim must look to a united Africa for Africas survival
    No single African country or collective African countries in all of africa can at this time design, and forge the steel to make a simple made in Africa bycycle ( shame)
    They are all simple well dressed white mans yardboy

  99. hey zimbabwe has been pathetic for so long.We have wasted ten years without achieving anytyhing.Have done a course but of no use.what are those people who call themselves politicians doing to our beautiful country.MaY THEY STOP THERE DIRTY GAME IMEDIATELY AND WE PROCEED WITH OUR LIFE.CAN NOT EVEN MARRY A WIFE IMAGINEJUSY

  100. To all those who still say that black government is the best thing to happen to Zimbabwe. I say “phooey!!”
    Anyone with any sense at all would say….”Man what were we thinking, when we decided to demand black government instead of better government”
    I am under no illusion that the so called white regime had its faults, but there was a genuine effort to include all peoples in the scheme of things over time.
    I immigrated to Rhodesia as a baby in 1947, and left my beloved home in the ’70s when it became evident that the black majority was fooled into supporting a drive to oust white goverment from power. They were sadly drawn into believing the greedy, murderous , nationalist terrorists, who overan the only people who could bring the nation into the 21st century. I miss my beloved Rhodesia and wonder what happened to the many indigionous blacks who I had contact with through my work and home.I was fortunate and able to escape the years of downfall that followed the success of black rule. But my heart still remains in that distant ,most beautiful land.Sadly the people who were most instramental in bringing black rule into place are now the recipients of its inability to bring them anything but suffering. Proud Rhodesian, Chris Elley…Arizona

  101. I cum from nkayi,sikhobokhobo,our culture has been ruined by the regime eg roads are dead, vacant post occupied by people that can not even speek our beloved ndebele language.
    we dont want to hear anything frm mugabe and his allies bcoz they failed us big time,so now people from mashonaland there are all over zimbabwe.

    from Bob Nkululeko Mhlanga

  102. our leaders(Mygabe and tsvangirai) are working as a single unity but the problem is that there are other figures within the structure that are self centred thus they despise they new unity govnt

  103. in the jungle,a male lion kills the cubs of a female so it can mate with her to produce its own cubs…tsavngirai has allowed mugabe to kill the children of zimbabwe,white and black,so he can place his own spawn into power with no challengers.what tsvangirai fails to see is that most females fight for their children to live in their good image not the images of a ruthless killer…
    it takes one man to destroy all and many many more to build or rebuild a house,why cant africa open her eyes and come togther for true indipendence and democracy.or have they forgotten that a government is ment for the people,with the people, and stands by the people…mugabe is not the voice of zimbabwes living,he is the voice of all the inocent whodied for him,by him and through him!!!!

    to me they are all animals not pple rulling,so when some one is brave enuf to tame these beast and free all victims,will we see the cradle of mankind continue to florish….

    justice needs and wants to be served!!!!!!!

  104. mugabe said only God can take him out.People of Zim be happy God has started.He is taking his ring leaders first and mugabe for last and you know what people he is going to be so lonely and affraid to meet all those evil people like him in hell,who have already made friends with satan and denounce mugabe as greedy,weak and absent minded and satan himself is preparing the warmest welcoming for him end of the year.mugabe is not going to live till December.China has run out of genes to clone another mugabe .mugabe died when Lady SALLY died.What you have ruling ZIMBABWE is CHINESE clone of mugabe.Short live mugabe till DECEMBER.GO TO THE HELL FIRE WHERE YOU BELONG.

  105. I GIVE A BIG UP TO MR MUGABE FOR ALL THE WORK HE HAS DONE. HE IS A HERO, THE LEGEND AND HE IS MY IDOL. KEEP IT UP MR MUGABE WHOEVER DOES,NT APPRECIATE YOUR WORK I CAN SAY HEOR SHE IS MENTALLY DISTURBED. THEY NEED TO GO TO SEE THE PSYCHOLOGIST.

    THANK YOU TATA I SALUTE YOU

  106. things havent been good at all in zim but playin the blame game wont help.personally i hv always admired mugabe-one of the great african leaders,with true leadership qualities but of late eeeeish.he should have handed over power to someone else a long time ago but rather he didnt and all hell broke loose.i have never liked tsvangirai to be the president coz he lacks leadership qualities but i have been forced to just vote for him simply for the sake of change.all the suffering back home really makes me mad but im not gonna blame mugabe only but all those around him.i only hope and pray that one day the Almighty will answer our prayers.im a student in cape town and i believe east west home is best hence come december i will heading down kumakomoyo ini hangu wasu.

  107. I think that zimbabwe’s neighbors should cool down and respect other’s, because you can’t fight forever, and you can not live with anger in your heart to hurt others or the community.

  108. I have just returned to the UK after a Four week holiday in Zimbabwe, this was my first ever visit to Africa and was made very welcome by its people, but,I could not believe that I was still in the Twenty First Century,what I see was not at all pleasant the whole infrastructure needs urgently updating by the Government,what is needed is a public works program to be initiated thus giving full employment to the many thousands that are only just surviving on the hand outs and good will of others. I see children in rags, homes that were not fit for animals let alone human beings to live in, therefore, I ask the Zimbabwean government to search it’s conscience if it has one, the people deserve better they are not cattle they are human beings so start treating them as such give them the standard of living that they deserve and maybe just maybe you can stay in power.

  109. Mugabe i am sick and tired of watching you destroy Zimbabwe, if you think that u will be able to fight Botswana i think that you should be the one to think twice, not about yourself but the people of Zimbabwe. You have murdered innocent people, the ndebele people you slaughtered, men women and children, what did they do to you, they did nothing. Mugabe you are a coward and a dog. I have watched as my uncles farm was taken away without any legal justice. I have watched the millions of Zimbabwe children who starve to death while u throw multi billion dollar birthday parties for yourself. While the people of Zimbabwe are suffering you sit in your house with Zimbabwe at your mercy. I have watched you cheat on election after election and i think it is time you stopped. Mugabe you are a MURDERER,and a thief, you took your own nation and threw it out the window, i think i speak for all of my fellow Zimbabweans when i say this Mugabe its time for you to GO !!!!!

  110. Mr president

    i seriousl think mr mugabe is doing the right deed,i mean what the hell do the us think they are,are they helping the zimbabweans by imposing sanctions,there actually trying to show that their level of thought is below than the zimbabweans,i was in zimbabwe,,,but proudly realte myself to zimbabwe,,,,,,alll UK did was exploit the whole world,,,dis ever anyone think of that???/was that right???did the world ever get back to them,,,,they showed their power,,,,,so mr mugabe i am with u totally sir..

  111. I pray every day that he will suffer equally for the pain tht he has caused! Mugabe may the lord strike you down and allow you to repent while you feel the pain you caused in your last days!

    Families lost! children dying! fathers and mother slautered infront of their little children. How can he ever be forgiven!

  112. mugabe has done well till this day but i thank him for what he did .well done mate dut its time out he realy has to go and people might say you are a hero

  113. The best peace always comes after winning a war. We negotiated because we were not brave enough to win the war. All counties that have risen up and got rid of the problems permanently are always better off.The people are weak and cowards.

  114. we are surfing in south africa,xenophobia is strucking us,all these is because of mugabe and his cronies.african leaders must take action,we have no powers remove,if we try to vote for a change this man start his brutal killings,god help us and take this devil before he finishes your civiliens.

  115. Ladies and gentlemen, ZANU has gone too far this time. There has been a bit of buzz recently about young Paul Kaseke, the ZANU boy who has been carrying out plans of terror on the Ndebele people and the MDC calling them sell outs. He has threatened a removal of all ethinic grouos loyal to the MDC and has full control of the ZANU youth and militia to carry out operation ” sovereignity” and reating ZANU in power befroe the next election. Please get this boy investigated for crimes against humanity. Thoousands have died at his hands and we cannot think what is next . ZANU enough is enough .

  116. Are you seriously telling me that the young Paul Kaseke does the bidding for uncle Bob? Wow. Zvanyanya. I met him while he was Governor and to me , he made sense but then he was not political just rationale. When did he change. Shame on ZANu and shame Paul , i respected you at some point but now you are just as bad

  117. whale! i’ve heard all ur comments but guys put it accross ur mind that not every change is good am only 18 but i trust the old man with ma life coz guys really do u ever put it accross ur minds that this guys was one of the leaders who held our parents hands out of the struggle and where was ur tswangirai do u really knw anything abt this guy coz as far as am concerned he only emerged around 90’s it time of war he was working for the british as a spy ok if ur think am wrong look the whole britain is behind him why coz they want him to be puppet leader then they can indirect colonise us again i mean do u really want to go there.my parents just moved from rural areas to farms but during the last elections when everyone assumed tswa had already won they came to the farms and told our parents to pack theirs and go coz their leader had won. really if britain has our best interests why did they put saction and why do they want tswangirai not mugabe wat is it they like about him so much that if he takes over they wil remove the sanctions.and as for the financial part pliz leave the president out of it. its our greedyness that destroys our country wat we have we wont share our ministers have 10 farms each but is it the president who gives them or they user their powers also he does not manage that part of the economy fine am struggling in SA but take a look at sa they are fine coz blacks are second class citizens even at work nomatter no experience or qualification u will never be payed with him our president wants the best 4 us believe me you think twice b4 ur blame him coz all of us are to be blamed if u are innoccent why dont u go back and fight 4 ur country than runaway and help develop another country including me i hope u wil understand irest ma case

  118. You sons and daughters of Cicel J.Rhoes.
    There is one thing you must know.
    We fought you and we beat you.We will beat you again if the situation was repeated 100 times over. Zimbabwe is for us and Mugabe is the loved and elected president.

    You are trying to install a stugee who you know is senseless and flawed and a fraud.

    Whatever comes, with Mugabe in control, victory is certain.

  119. AM DEEPLY CONCERNERD ABOUT WHERE THIS ALL WILL LEAVE THE STARVING ZIMBABWEAN STUDENTS THAT WERE SENT ON SCHOOLARSHIP AND HAVE NOT YET RECEIVED THEIR MONEY FOR WEEKS NOW. PLEASE BOB LIVE UP TO YOUR PROMISE AND SUPPORT THESE KIDS

  120. its called a chain reaction , it started in Egypt now in Libya then to Zimbabwe .
    zimbabweans lets not be cowards like we have been for the last 10 years , all we ever do is run off to other countries for refuge. if we stand together we will give him no option but to give in to our demands .
    nemi masoja ne mapurisa munosvika rinhi muchinzi saaa sembwa idzo mhuri dzenyu dzichitambura . lets man up and claim what is rightfully ours . freedom and democracy . those two words have lost their meaning for us . taneta

  121. viva mugabe viva….zimbabwe will not be a colony again……foward ever backwards never
