Zimbabwe Is Always In Crisis Under Mugabe

Hundreds of people marched in Harare demanding African leaders cease talking about peace and democracy and actually do something to force President Mugabe to finally accept the will of the Zimbabwean people. Members of the Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition were assaulted by police for daring to speak up against the oppressive government which currently rules their nation. Mediator Thabo Mbeki, former president of South Africa, continued insisting things would work out if only both sides agreed to compromise. Exactly what is there to “compromise about” given that Mugabe wields all power. Morgan Tsvangirai has nothing to offer except to demand the will of his people be carried out. The leader of the Movement for Democratic Change wants real power over the police or army which Mugabe refuses to release since he fears his thugs might be arrested for their brutality.

The Southern African Development Community(SADC) must finally accept reality. Mugabe must be forced from power since he will not go voluntarily. Each time they meet with Mugabe he mumbles agreements to share power, but once they depart, his words are never matched with reality.

Zimbabwe as a nation no longer exists. Unless the SADC uses its economic and political power to force Mugabe to take action, millions will starve or flee the country.

Tsvangirai Returns To Zimbabwe

Morgan Tsvangirai, who most probably won the election held for president this March, returned home from his self imposed exile in South Africa to a nation which is bset by government organized gang activitie that beat, torture and even kill political opponents. Many members of his MDC party are disappointed Tsvangirai remained in South Africa while the campaign of terror envelops the nation, but he has indicated returning would have led to his death at the hands of government thugs.It is estimated mor ethan 30 MDC party supporters and officials have been murdred by government sponsored “war veterans” whose only goal is to intimidate people either to vote for President Mugabe or not to vote.

Tsvangirai visited victims of the brutality and discovered that most hospitals in the nation are reporting dozens of cases of individuals who have suffered broken arms or legs at the hands of Mugabe goons. Tsvangirai went immediately to the funeral of activist Tonderai Ndira who was tortured and then killed by Mugabe supporters.
