I hope Mugabe gets to spend a few years in a jail cell before he dies.
Maybe, but I doubt that’s how it will end, first and foremost, he’s 93, he won’t last very long as a prisoner. Secondly that’s not usually how Coups work, he’ll be captured, usually by solders, but somehow they’ll ‘lose’ him to an angry mob who’ll drag him around for a bit until he either dies from being manhandled or someone shoots him in the back of the head with a pistol.Posted 3 months agocranberryMember
Mad Bob has stolen pretty much all the money and sent it overseas. I’m sure he’ll be fine.
True, but he can’t spend it if he is hanging from a lamppost.
The only problem is that there is probably no one with a better track record of human rights that is in a position to take over.Posted 3 months agoshermer75Member
I’ve been pretty much glued to what’s happening to be honest, the Guardian seems to have good coverage
Hopefully it’s a step towrds a more representative and economically sustainable outcome rather than a descent into a destructive and costly civil war…Posted 3 months agoJunkyardMember
It disgusts me how the west have allowed white genocide to go unchallenged under the racist despot.

What has happened to the country is terrible and will take decades, if ever, to repair when the country is finally allowed to have a democratically elected leader.
Such a beautiful country, I would love to visit again one day but feel it would be a shadow of its former self.epicycloSubscriber

Aye, ye’d think they’d have learned how to do it properly when they had the examples of skilled operators like the Germans with the Herrero, the Belgians in the Congo, or the British with the proto concentration camps for the Boers.

Not getting the hate for enfht here. Are we saying that genocide against white people is OK as some sort of retribution for crimes carried out by Europeans against the indigenous people who’s countries they
invadedbrought civilisation to?
Surely killing someone for their ethnicity is completely unjustified under any circumstances or am I missing something?Posted 3 months agoTrimixMember
Are there any leaders in Africa that are democratically elected and not corrupt ? Have any ever lost an election and gone without kicking and screaming ? I cant think of any.
Whoever takes over from the current one will be similar, sadly.
I went to school there during the troubles in the late 70’s early 80’s and Mugabe was then seen quite differently.Posted 3 months ago
