The evidence mounts that President Robert Mugabe inhabits a world of delusion in which he gives orders and nations of the world jump to obey them just as his lackeys and followers do his biding. The man has lost any contact with reality and refused to make necessary changes that would enable his country to have a chance to regain economic and social stability. Mubgabe entered into a political power-sharing agreement with Morgan Tsvangirai of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) in order to show the world there was a commitment to social justice in Zimbabwe. Instead, Mugabe continues arresting and harassing journalists and members of opposition parties in order to demonstrate he is still in charge.
The latest episode was arresting prominent human rights activist Alec Muchadehama who was in the process of arranging for the release of human rights activists only to be arrested himself. Naturally, a judge threw out the arrest. What would it take for Mugabe to finally understand there will be no $8 billion in aid from foreign donors if he continues this mad policy of arresting people who disagree with him? How can the people of tortured Zimbabwe be protected against the mad man who rules them?
