Tsvangirai nagging the West to lift sanctions: another costly blunder by the blunderer!
July 25, 2012 in Uncategorized
Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai is now inNew Zealandafter visitingAustraliaon a mission to argue these countries and others to lift the targeted sanctions against Mugabe and his ruling elite. As a Zimbabwean I find PM Tsvangirai’s duplicity and down right stupidity infuriating!
The sanctions were imposed on Mugabe after his repeated failure to hold free and fair elections in 2002. Mugabe has shown than he is not ready to change; the most recent elections, in 2008, turned out to be the most violent elections ever! Even tougher sanctions were imposedRhodesiaandSouth Africato force the white regimes to end their racist oppression. And all blacks then wanted the sanctions retained and now the same individuals say the sanctions are not working!
PM Tsvangirai told the PM of New Zealand John Key Mugabe was “committed for his own legacy and for the legacy of the country to move forward in a stable way.” What nonsense!
Mugabe stopped believing in democracy, the rule of law, etc a long time ago; he crossed the point-of-no-return, he is now a lawless and ruthless tyrant. His corruption and looting have destroyed theZimbabweeconomy; millions now live in abject poverty. He and his cronies are committed to protecting their loot and to ensure all their murderous past remains hidden. That is Mugabe’s legacy.
For the last four years PM Tsvamgirai has tried flattering and appeasing Mugabe it has not work. It will never work.
The one reform PM Tsvangirai claims progress has been made on, the new constitution; is a waste of time. Mugabe saw to it that the new constitution will do nothing to stop the scourge of political violence or him from standing for re-elections, just to name two of the burning issues.
It the new constitution was the super drug to cure the nation’s ills then Mugabe removed all the active chemicals, it is now nothing more than a placebo.
Mugabe continues with his campaign of violence. Whilst PM Tsvangirai was inNew Zealandthere were reports of Zanu PF thugs with the help of the Police disrupting an MDC rally in Zvimba and declaring it an MDC “no-go” area. No doubt PM Key saw the reports and knows PM Tsvangirai is in denial of the truth.
The West must be sick and tired of all this mindless nagging to lift the sanctions and, to make matters worse, from people like PM Tsvangirai who should be arguing for the tightening of the sanction. Really, Western government have better things do to; if people like PM Tsvangirai want to shoot themselves in the foot, let them. The tragic reality is it is the ordinary people ofZimbabwewho have paid dearly for PM Tsvangirai’s blunders in the past and will pay dearly for this blunder too!
