Robert Mugabe Is A Thug And Sanctions Must Remain!

Robert Mugabe who stole an election in order to use the title of “President” is furious because the European Union refuses to end sanctions against the gang of murders and thieves who control the government of Zimbabwe. Ostensibly, there is “power sharing” which theoretically allows the opposition party some say in running the government, but the police, army and security forces are under the control of Mugabe. As always, Robert blames the ever useful cause of “anti-colonialism” to explain away torture and beatings of opposition members. He insists the issue is all about Western nations seeking to take Zimbabwe resources for their own purposes. “We have resources they envy, natural resources that belong to us. There is the issue of land here.”

Yes, ownership of land is an issue. But, what Mugabe refuses to acknowledge is how his regime seized land from white farmers and gave the land to cronies of the president. Naturally, those cronies were no interested in farming or providing jobs for people in Zimbabwe, they were only interested in how much money they could make from the farms.

Mugabe insists all Zimbabweans agree “that the sanctions must go.” Of course, the sanctions must go, but so must Mugabe go.

Ides Of March– Will Mugabe Kill Democracy?

The people of Zimbabwe must be concerned as they lined up by the millions to vote because President Mugabe said he would accept the decision of the electorate. the Zimbabwe ecnomy has collapsed due to the disastrous policies of Mugabe, millions have fled the nation, and an election is going on. Why would Mugabe, who has ruled for 28 years, say he will accept the polling results? The only logical reason is he knows how the voting will turn out– with his re-election. Noel Kututwa, of the Zimbabwe Election Support Network, observed: “from what we have obsrved of the voting, there have been minimal problems.” He noted lines were not as long as in previous elections but this might be due to the fact millions have fled the nation in search of jobs.

The people of Zimbabwe who voted has a feeling of expectancy their long nightmare might end, but at the same time there was a deep sense of doubt Robert Mugabe would exit in any graceful manner. The problem does not lie in people voting, it lies in the people who are counting the votes. In all likelihood, there will be extensive vote fraud, the only uncertainty is the percentage of victory Mugabe seeks to achieve.
