Kenyan Reporter on Robert Mugabe's Self-Destruction
Robert Mugabe must have a death wish, since his demise is very humiliating!
If God was near and where I could meet him, I swear, I could ask him to cane Robert Mugabe severely. Since when I look a bit of Zimbabwe just a little away from Kenya now and with relative experiences.
Looks to me like Zimbabwen route out of the human-made fiasco has taken a dimension entirely its own. The question is how to handle actual state power transfer now that the world seems to accept MDC won both the polls. It’s a tricky polemic now in African politics and leadership.
But then one needs to look back into history. Circumstances forced the nationalist rebel movement to negotiate with the oppressor even when it became apparent the fire if Chimurenga was next door to Ian Smith's quarters. Had none military minds like Mugabe not been in the frontline Zimbabwe would have been the second African country where European despotism were to be brought down by outright military defeat.
That's the importance of Josiah Tongogara and Edgar Tekere. These were freedom fighters wholly wedded to the gun to liberate Zimbabwe. On the other hand, there were arm-chair revolutionaries whose main weapons were mere rhetoric’s. The long jail sentence served Mugabe so well. He turned prison into a university. He read and argued and farted abstract ideological sermons all day. By the time he was being released a megalomania of Mugabe's cunning knew that the most sought after actor on the globe was the prison-graduate liberator especially in the Third World countries where social discontent were rife. No one suited that role so well like Mugabe and he knew it. His rivals had been bumped off or politically neutered.
For some reasons I suspect that Mubage sub-consciously is hugging fate to destroy him: might it be that the wounded pride is too much for the hero to stand? Does he have a death wish - leading government troops in a final onslaught against the invisible British enemies and their agents, namely MDC and the people?
Mugabe's a mentally challenging case. I wish time will prove my theory wrong because that's not what I'd wish to see for a country I so much love and met good souls like.
