Is Zimbabwe Better Off Without Chiefs?

If this chairman of the chief's council, Chief Fortune Charumbira represents the calibre of chiefs we now have in the country, maybe the country is now better off without the chiefs.

He is quoted in the Zimbabwean confirming that only President Robert Mugabe now has chiefs at heart and that he fears for the institution of the chiefs once President Mugabe departs the political scene.

But he does not say anything to justify why the people should support the institution of chiefs or why it should exist in the first place, nor does he bother to try to examine why their own people no longer have any interest in the chiefs.

Last month a deputy chief secretary in the office of the President and Cabinet, Ray Ndhlukula, moved his property and workers onto David Connolly’s Centenary Farm despite a High Court order barring him from interfering with operations at the property.

Save Mugabe from Himself, and Save Zimbabwe

I have argued for many years that Mugabe’s goal is to die in office and it seems to me that the narrative in the Zimbabwe media is now supporting this view. However I think that many people have not yet grasped the concern around Robert Mugabe’s mental health.

Many years ago, before the first crash of the Zimbabwe dollar in 1997, leading Zimbabwean economist, Prof Tony Hawkins, asked “Which will fall first, the Zimbabwe economy or Robert Mugabe?”. Certainly the answer is there for everybody to see.

Mugabe needs to be gracefully and quietly forced into retirement without shedding anymore blood

Zimbabwe Will Wake Up To Dead Towns Sooner Than Later

beyondrepairAn indication of the impending crisis Zimbabwe is the fact that, following an expose of the obscene salaries of council bosses, they were directed to cap their salaries, but they continued to circumvent the directive, and are now selling council land to continue paying those salaries and perks.
