On one hand I agree, but on the other hand I say "let the bugger suffer!"... ;)

Zimbabwe should be the third biggest economy in Africa but thanks to him he's done a pretty good job of destroying it!

His countrymen are a lazy bunch, the ones who are not lazy are working in SA, the rest could not even be bothered to get rid of him in any way possible, so Divine intervention has had to take place.

(apologies for offending anyone, but the truth is a pain)

Could his "undisclosed illness" possibly be syphillis of the soul??

 

This is an illness which only attacks authoritarian and dictator politicians!

I wonder if he has secured a solid gold coffin yet?:notrust: I hope he does, it will be fun to hear about it being dug up and resold for its gold content.

They should be sure and bury him upside down, so that he can see where he is going, no need for directions this way. I am sure he will get some sort of demonic escort in any case.:wacko:

South Africa will, of course, provide R100 Million for his funeral. Anything less will be an insult

to this great statesman, an african hero who dedicated his life to destroying Zimbabwe.

Am I reading this wrong?Emmerson Mnangagwa doesn't sound any better.Celebrating mugabe's death might be useless.

 

"The former Zimbabwe intelligence chief was also widely blamed for the brutality following the 2008 presidential election after Mugabe’s rival, Morgan Tsvangirai, took an early lead in the voting.

 

He is also thought to have played a major role in the crackdown of the opposition Zapu party in the 1980s that left thousands of civilians dead."

 

(Sheesh, made a lot of grammar mistakes)

Heaven preserve mankind from any return whatsoever!

 

P.S. I wonder if Julius Malema will be one of the pallbearers?

How about we take bets on who will survive the longest, Schabir Shaik or Robert Mugabe?

I find it somewhat disappointing that he needs treatment in Singapore.

 

One would have thought that after 32 years of obliterating all things colonial

he would have the best home-grown medical staff in Zim. The colonialists were,

after all, the biggest stumbling block towards developing the magnificent country you see

today.

 

Or is he secretly being looked after by British medical staff ?

 

And I wonder how he pays? Perhaps they will leave the last Boeing they have

parked in Singapore as payment. Or the Chinese foot the bill. Or Rhino horn

they poached in good old RSA is the preferred currency.

I was on twitter and I see that Trevor Ncube (the owner of the m&g and several Independent Zim newspapers) tweeted that the source of the Mugabe story is not reliable. Trevor Ncube is a pretty respected guy so sadly I think this may not be what many are hoping for.:cry:

Is Mugabe a case of "only the good die young"? Seems like it.

Had a Zimbabwean in the shop today trying to sell his handcarved curios to us (gorgeous by the way) and we got chatting about the situation in Zim as hubby is Rhodesian. The things he was telling us is unbelievable...

 

But one thing we had to laugh at was his story about the 'dead president' - a short while ago they got news that "the president was dead" and they shouted and started to celebrate, until someone reminded them that it was not mad-Bob but the president from Malawi (I think). He said how the party stopped immediately and everyone ended up miserable! He says that the prime minister (Tsangurai?) is at least trying his best for "the people" but how the likes of Mugabe and his "gang" are making it so difficult.

 

He also had a few wise words... including how SA is following in the same footsteps as Zim! Gives one something to think about!

Very sad SFA. Mugabe is an excellent example of "the devil looking after his own".

 

I can't agree that our SA is on the same road though. If we were, Julius would be in a jail cell somewhere, not still running about shooting his mouth off.

 

Thanks to Madiba, our transition to a "democracy" was different in a lot of ways to that of the Rhodesian transition. But the memories of hatred, fear and stereotyping cannot be eradicated in just 18 years. We still have a couple of generations of Old South Africans (of all colours) to whom memories of the Old Days are still very firmly entrenched. How the Old South Africa is viewed depends on the circumstances each individual found him/herself in during those Old Days.
