The Government will not change, not in my lifetime, that is because no one will allow the majority of the people to be heard. For one thing we can be assured of is our natural resources will be sustancially diminished as well as our valued wild life. Our children's children will be lucky to see the little wild life that still remains, but is subject to out of control poaching due to bad governance. So going back to fair elections & a change of Government being a possible cure to all or many of our existing problems.....or not??? Or will the cycle just start again as it has done in the past throughout Africa.
You don't have to lay down and take it. Figure out what you want for the country, find the right people, and take over. Mugabe will be dead soon. You're in prime position to change the reality you foresee.

You're right, even after Mugabe nothing will change. The problem is with the system, not with with whoever is in power.

So, work on changing the system. I mean, if not you, who? Who will help you? You need to help yourself. Get to work.

Rhodi is white, and if he successfully took your advice, the world would just have another Ian Smith on its hands, to systematically destroy and replace with another Mugabe.

Ian Smith is not another Mugabe. It was a different era and where is unlikely to see again.

Mugabe is not so different other African leaders after they reached independence in that they would do all they can do to stay in power as long as can be and do what it takes to eradicate the opposition.

Mugabe would blame the Whites for causes of the problems in Africa and call the opposition as agents for the White people (especially for the British Government) as much as the Arab dictators blame their problems on Israel and label their opposition working for Isreal.

hmmmm...just asking what's Mr. Mugabe's 'popularity' with other African leaders? I'm sure he has boosters. I'm sure he has his detractors. He's certainly a divisive figure yet he always manages to win 'unity' when it comes time for elections. Just wondering how the countries around Zimbabwe feel about the situation there. Do they like to see the 'status quo?'
