How bad are things in Robert Mugabe’s Zimbabwe? Some blacks are pining for the days of white rule:
Thanks for continuing to cover and pay attention to the news coming from Zimbabwe. Sadly the country only becomes news worthy on “election” years, but as each year goes more attention is drawn, and maybe just maybe Mugabe will someday be struck down.
Mugabe has in the past shown himself to be good at black-on-black chauvanism. In the early eighties he used North Korean troops to punish members of another tribe of black Africans in Zimbabwe for not supporting him. The generally accepted body count was 20,000.
Take race out of it and it’s still telling. Whenever a dictator finds himself using the success of a minority (be they Chinese, Jewish, or ‘white’); it is often to mask the true suffering of the majority of his countrymen.
By all rights, Zimbabwe should be richer than South Africa, Mugabe ruined it.
