Re: ZIMBABWE seeing their Arab Spring ??

I agree with you Kanga. It's no wonder people can't get health treatment when his wife spends money that could be used to help people on herself��

The wife of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has sued a Lebanese businessman for failing to deliver a £1 million diamond ring she ordered for her wedding anniversary, state media reported Wednesday.

'First lady Dr Grace Mugabe is suing fugitive businessman Mr Jamal Joseph Ahmed for £1 million over a diamond ring deal that went sour last year,' The Herald newspaper said.
'In breach of the agreement, Mr Ahmed failed to deliver the ring, triggering a legal wrangle.'

Re: ZIMBABWE seeing their Arab Spring ??

Good news

The World Health Organization has revoked the appointment of Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe as a goodwill ambassador following a widespread outcry.

"I have listened carefully to all who have expressed their concerns," WHO head Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said in a statement.

He had previously praised Zimbabwe for its commitment to public health.

But critics pointed out that Zimbabwe's healthcare system had collapsed under Mr Mugabe's 30-year rule.

Staff often go without pay, medicines are in short supply, and Mr Mugabe, who has outlived the average life expectancy in his country by three decades, travels abroad for medical treatment....

Zimbabwe army denies coup against Mugabe as it takes control of Harare

Zimbabwean defence forces have seized control of state broadcaster ZBC overnight, screening a statement declaring that it is “targeting criminals” around the president, Robert Mugabe.

Mugabe himself, and his family, are “safe and sound”, army spokesman Major General SB Moyo said. Mugabe has not appeared in public or issued a statement. It is unclear whether he is in the custody of the military…

Re: ZIMBABWE seeing their Arab Spring ??

Even if he is ousted, the thugs that did his bidding will still be in power. He will be dead soon (is he really 150 years old?) and my guess is they did not want his wife taking over and spoiling their playground: I do not anticipate much change. Perhaps UK can sell them weapons; you have to take the opportunities as they present themselves.

Latest: news is he is in protective custody - so he could accidentally be dead by lunch time.

Re: ZIMBABWE seeing their Arab Spring ??

My crystal ball is cloudy these days but if Mugabe falls then Zanu-PF will surely fall with him.

I would have put my money on Morgan Tsvangirai of the MDC to take over but he is getting on in years and not in the best of health so perhaps Nelson Chamisa would be a better bet.

Whatever the outcome I doubt things could get any worse and there’s no chance of the white farmers getting their land back.

He is customer and friend to the West, so this ruthless despot has long been tolerated and supported, Idi Amin light! Good riddance, hope they put him against the wall.
