Mugabe Ready To Crush All Opposition

The Soouth African government finally decded to exert pressure on President Mugabe by urging the immediate release of election results. President Mibeki of South Afrca has come under severe criticism throughout the world for his failure to demonstrate a commitment to democracy. Themba Maseko, a spokesman for South Africa, said: “When elections are held and results are not released two weeks after, it s obviously of great concern.” However, the South African governmnent is not going to do anything about halting shipment of weapons from a docked Chinese ship. The Zimbabwe government apparently ordered this material as part of its campaign of terror against the people of its own nation.

The Mugabe government has expressed the view Morgan Tsvangirai who won the election i guilty of “treason” for stirring up world anger against his nation. The government controlled, Herald newspaper published a letter supposedly sent by Tsvangirai to the British government asking it to send troops to Zimbabwe. The forgery is undoubtedly just another example of Mugabe using every possible weapon to defend his dictatorial rule.

    Mugabe is a dictator, however, he is sensetive to the international opinion – he would like the world to believe that his rule is by consent, those being ruled provided him with a mandate to rule. Mbeki, S. Africa, SADC, AU, etc, are members of the “Old Boys Club”, that believes that once elected, get rid of the opposition or swallow it, in order to rule until death. The Chiefs or judges once elected to their positions die in those positions, so is the motto of the Old Boy’s Club.

    Therefore, what Mugabe or Zanu does in Zimbabwe, must be seen in this perspective. What is surprising is the extent to which he exerts cruelity on the people of Zimbabwe, in order to achieve his goals.

    For whatever Mugabe or Zanu does after the 29th March 2008, polls; is nothing but to try to gain the LEGITIMACY to rule lost at those polls – coerce the electorate or negotiate with the winning Party – nothing said is genuine. Whoever, believes ib whatever, he says becomes his victim. Many individuals and Parties have fallen to these sort of tings on account of ambition or naivety.
