The government of Head Thug, Robert Mugabe, never ceases to amaze in its ability to conceive of new ways of justifying the arrest of innocent men and women. Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai is attempting to focus on restoring the economy of Zimbabwe which was destroyed under the incompetent leadership of Mugabe. During the past few months several members of Tsvangirai’s Movement for Democratic Change(MDC) have been arrested on one silly charge after another. Thamsanqa Mahlangu, a deputy minister and a leader in the MDC was charged with theft by the corrupt Zimbabwe police. He is charged with attending a meeting dealing with the topic of a “National Shared Vision” with a Mugabe friend, Joseph Chinotimba, when the MDC leader got the bright idea to steal the cell phone of the man sitting next to him.
Perhaps, the African Union can award a prize to Mugabe for his ability to concoct the most fascinating ideas on justifying arresting those who disagree with your corrupt rule. Of course, in Mugabeland, the only people allowed to steal are his followers.
If anyone has a mental illness it might well be helpful to get the nearest airplane headed to Zimbabwe and spend a few weeks in Mugabeland. Robert Mugabe, the Wizard of Madness, rules the land by ensuring he always wins elections, particularly those in which he received fewer votes than his opponent. In Mugabeland, one is always happy and wealthy by accepting anything the Wizard does must be correct because since he is the all-knowing and wise wizard, he can not commit wrong. Mugabe lost the last presidential election and the Movement for Democratic Change’s candidate not only had more votes but the MDC gained a majority in parliament. No problem for the Wizard, just create crimes that MDC MPs never committed, charge them with being criminals and eject them from parliament. It is a guaranteed way to achieve a majority in the parliament.
Since MDC leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, agreed to a coalition government in February, 16 MDC MPs have been charged with crimes, but for some unknown reason not a single member of the Mugabe Zanu-PF party has been charged with anything. To steal in Mugabeland it is not stealing if you are a member of the Zanu-PF. But, if you fail to pick up the litter in the street and happen to be a member of the MDC, you can be assured of a trip to jail, a beating, and back to jail for several months.
The Wizard of Zimbabwe is undoubtedly a wizard when it comes to brutality and oppression.
The rainy season in Zimbabwe is just about to peak and there is extensive fear weather will play a vital role in the spread of cholera in the nation which now has infected over 30,000 people and killed about 1,600. The World Health Organization said infection is growing at an ever faster rate since the entire health and sanitation system has collapsed due to the inept rule of President Mugabe. He has refused to implement promises made to Morgan Tsvangirai, leader of the Movement for Democratic Change(MDC) to share power. Instead Mugabe has unleashed his thugs to intimidate, brutalize and even kill members of the opposition. Millions of people face starvation unless something can be done to compel Mugabe to behave like a decent human being. Health Minister David Parirenyatwa points out, “floods are a predisposing factor for cholera.”
Food is scarce, there is not enough money to pay doctors and nurses and unemployment impacts over half the population. Mugabe apparently will void the power-sharing agreement and appoint his own Cabinet which will result in further sanctions from the world. In the meantime, African nations remain silent and refuse to take any action to assist the people of Zimbabwe due to friendship with Mugabe. Such is the situation in Zimbabwe. Cry for this beloved country and its sorrow.
