Hopefully Mugabe's Days are Numbered

Good Morning Papamoka Bloggers - Over on my own blog, Our Rants & Raves, I announced that I plan to write more extemporaneously from now on - express more personal opinion without as many news citations. I hope you like it. If you disagree with me, simply challenge me by posting a comment and I'll be happy to cite my sources.

So, as part of my new casual decent into personal opinion, I would like to start by saying that somebody, anybody, needs to either arrest or shoot Robert Mugabe.

Without pointing out too many specifics, I would like to say the man has destroyed his nation - Zimbabwe - in a way that George Bush only wishes he could have done here. Though George did a very good job I might add.

For those who haven't been following the news, Zimbabwe has been spiralling out of control for years now, ever since Mugabe enforced land reforms that threw out the colonialists (who knew all about farming) and destroyed what some used to call the "bread basket" of Africa.

After he stole elections, he forced thousands of people from their suburban homes into the wilderness, and after plenty of other horrible things, created what is the highest inflation in the world - so high it's impossible to quote. The man has destroyed the infrastructure and the people.

The nation's lack of resources has now led to a massive cholera epidemic that has killed over six hundred people so far. The African thugs who have supported Mugabe are starting to see the epidemic bleed into their own borders, so now it appears they might actually do something about removing the criminal.

My least favorite - and our least effective - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is in South Africa now trying to make something happen. I hope she's more effective than usual.

So, in my new casual style, I will also introduce another new blog instrument - THE WORST PERSON IN THE WOLD today. I say that Robert Mugabe wins that dubious honor.

I don't want to advocate violence, but when somebody is KILLING HIS PEOPLE, I am left with no choice except to say get rid of him - at least wound him so he leaves. Hopefully somebody will do something about it.

I left when things got bad in Zimbabwe 1999. I came back from a business trip to find, that all my household belongings had been taken. Little did I know, that day would be a HUGE blessing, otherwise who knows when I would have left, it may have been too late.

I have survivor feelings, my family struggle everyday to put food on the table and I am in the USA. I work for my family all my money goes to me living and keeping them going. I send $800.00in food etc, but that buys hardly anything as everything is so expensive,Usd$30.00 for a bag of potatoes.

I see terrible sites on the internet, kids are so near death, they say nothing and just accept their lot in life.


I think the cholera, eventhough terrible, this will force the likes of Zambia, Botswana and South Africa saying enough is enough, their countries are now under direct assault from natural disaster and not the original Man made Mugabe disaster.

God Bless my people in Zimbabwe.

I feel for you and your family Anonymous - let's hope that his days are numbered and they get rid of him as you say - by any means. Your country is in my prayers - Michael
