It’s time for all patriotic children of the soil to stand up and tell President Robert Mugabe to step down as his continued stay at State House is plunging the country deeper and deeper into economic chaos.
His greatest mistake was that he did not consult Ian Smith on how he managed to successfully run a country that was was under debilitating United Nations sanctions for more than 10 years. His second mistake is that he is scared of his people to the extent that he is surrounded by a wall of security personnel so much that he cannot see beyond his nose.
I do agree with a certain pastor, who said the country fell under a witchcraft spell, but he was short of saying the country is cursed.
I do not even believe people will miss Mugabe if he goes away. He is in the same league with Idi Dada Amin, Jean Claude Bokassa, Haile Mariam Mengistu, Mobutu Sese Seko, Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi,Kim il-Sung and Hissene Habre.
Just like Kwame Nkrumah, Mugabe started well, but power corrupted him to the extent that he is now considering himself a demigod. This misconception that people ought to die in office must be condemned by all sane people.
We cannot have such an old tired man dice with our lives while we have young energetic people who can perform better than him being relegated to spectators in their own country.
This country has been on auto-pilot since the rigged 2013 elections, that is why the economy is on a free fall. It’s unfortunate that no one in the world has ever managed to rig the economy and Mugabe is getting his just desserts, but unfortunately the innocent people are suffering too.
If I were asked to make a wish, I would wish he stayed forever in the East, where he was on holiday.
