Zimbabwe is a nation ruled by a ruthless man whose only desire is power for himself and the group of thugs who surround their leader, Robert Mugabe. For some unknown reason, Mugabe finally allowed the UN Special Rapporteur to visit his nation in order to investigate charges that torture has been used against the Movement for Democratic Change(MDC) whose leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, is attempting to help restore a semblance of economic health to the society. The UN official, Manfred Kowak was in South Africa and preparing to board a plane to Harare on Wednesday when he was informed no one was coming to check on torture in Zimbabwe, order of his Excellency, Robert Mugabe.
Once again, the Southern African Development Community (SADC) uttered words of concern at the political mess in Zimbabwe, will undoubtedly dispatch an envoy to “discuss” the situation, the envoy will return home, and the mess will continue. Until the SADC is prepared to use its economic and political power, Zimbabwe will be governed by the Mugabe clique.
