Kagame Plays His Hand, Wants to Extend Term Limits

As President Obama (r) once stated: “When a leader tries to change the rules in the middle of the game just to stay in office, it risks instability and strife – as we’ve seen in Burundi. And this is often just a first step down a perilous path.”

How Mugabe's Refusal To Pass Baton Doomed ZANU (PF) - Irreversibly


Everyone in Zanu (PF), not least, "First Shopper" Grace Mugabe, and Gukurahundi director Emmerson Mnangagwa, now fancies their chances because Robert Mugabe has torn the rule-book on Zanu (PF) succession

Warning To Ian Khama: Deepening Zimbabwe Crisis Will Pull Down SADC Region

khamaeditI know everyone is fed up with the continuous state of crisis in Zimbabwe but that is no reason for not paying attention to its implications. In 1976 it was an intervention by the American Secretary of State that attempted to address the political, economic and social crisis in Zimbabwe, compounded at that time by a “low level guerilla war”.

In 1980 it was the British, led by the Foreign Secretary, who attempted to address our situation in the form of a regional conference held in London. Then in 1996/7 the UN attempted to tackle the land issue and in 2000 the Mbeki administration considered what to do and came down on the side of supporting the established regime against the democratic forces in the country.

mugaPresident Robert Mugabe’s speechwriters must really think Zimbabweans are fools who do not know the difference between a State of the Nation address and phantasmagorical plans of a moribund government.

The pronouncement of plans (available here in audio), instead of telling Zimbabweans about the State of the Nation – which can only be described as perilous – was an attempt to disguise the utter failure of the Zanu (PF) government to get a grip on the government.
