On Zimbabwe powersharing

September 15th, 2008 § 0 comments


Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has signed a historic power-sharing deal with his long-time rival, opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai.

The two smiled and shook hands at the ceremony in the capital, Harare, attended by African dignitaries.

Mr Tsvangirai said the agreement provided the best hope for Zimbabwe and called on President Mugabe to work together to implement the deal.

Mr Mugabe said he was committed to national unity and would do “his best”.

Mugabe will do “his best”? What the fuck does that mean? He’s gonna try not to have people beaten shitless? He isn’t going to make people disappear?

Part of me thinks the MDC are kidding themselves and shouldn’t go into an agreement with that cunt. Would you trust him? They should’ve ousted him.

The other part of me, thinks it’s easy for me to say the above when there aren’t any so called ‘war veterans’ on their way round to my house wanting to show me their collection hammers, drills and bits of wood with nails through the end.

Slow, gradual change generally leads to a more stable result in the end anyway, doesn’t it? And again, I can accept a slow transformation, I don’t have to pay millions for a loaf of bread.
