Zimbabwae elections


Sir Tokyo Sexwale

Tsvangirai has pulled out. That f***ing t*** in S Africa needs to do something. A gov't needs to have Mugabi hit.

You have to wonder just how bad it's got to get before the South African leadership (and the leaders of other neighbouring states) end their "hear no, see no, speak no" routine.

Every man gotta right to decide his own destiny,

And in this judgement there is no partiality.

So arm in arms, with arms, well fight this little struggle,

cause thats the only way we can overcome our little trouble.

 

Brother, youre right, youre right,

Youre right, youre right, youre so right!

We gon fight (we gon fight), well have to fight (we gon fight),

We gonna fight (we gon fight), fight for our rights!

 

Natty dread it in-a (zimbabwe);

Set it up in (zimbabwe);

Mash it up-a in-a zimbabwe (zimbabwe);

Africans a-liberate (zimbabwe), yeah.

 

No more internal power struggle;

We come together to overcome the little trouble.

Soon well find out who is the real revolutionary,

cause I dont want my people to be contrary.

 

And, brother, youre right, youre right,

Youre right, youre right, youre so right!

Well ave to fight (we gon fight), we gonna fight (we gon fight)

Well ave to fight (we gon fight), fighting for our rights!

To divide and rule could only tear us apart;

In everyman chest, mm - there beats a heart.

And I dont want my people to be tricked by mercenaries.

so where to now? The 'election' is tomorrow. Mugabe will 'win'. There'll be (more) int'l outcry & Mugabe will denounce anyone criticizing him.

 

Am I being naive in thinking this could actually be the beginning of the end for him? Mbeki is eventually going to look like more of a prick than he already does if he doesn't step up & take a harder stand, or he'll be ignored altogether and he'll becoma an irrelevance. Maybe even Russia & China will voice criticisms, although they're probably in admiration of his human rights record

Odd how the electoral commission are about to declare a result, yet it took them about a month last time.

 

Maybe they used the last time as a practice run and were just quicker this time.

 

Or perhaps they had no numbers to fudge.

 

RIP Zimbabwe

This "landslide" victory (strange result as it was so finely balanced last time) only strengthens that bastid's stranglehold on a country that is beyond f*cked. I reckon it's just a matter of time before he's bumped off, cos the whole situation could destabilise the entire region.

It was easier to call the election result this time as it was a one horse race. Only one candidate was up for election in the vote so it was hard for them to get it wrong.

 

Might be interesting to see how long before parliament gets dissolved and Mugabe declares himself the emperor as the MDC now controls the parliament.

The African Union has to prove itself now and get involved in the situation in Zimbabwe, they are the only ones that stand any chance of successfully intervening and changing the regime. If they won't go further than their initial resolution of condeming violence in general rather than Mugabe then it will lose any credibility it might have. If they won't act then the UN must intervene to give the people of Zimbabwe any chance of having a decent future, as for Mbeki, he has already lost all credibilty for his lack of condemnation.

Would people approve of military action to kick Mugabe out?

 

probably yes because unlike Iraq, I'd imagine it could be effective, very quickly

don't see his army having much stomach for the fight and hopefully it would be a case of surgical removal

 

what happens next though? are the same parameters existent that could propel Zimbabwe in to civil war?

 

I would have thought not, but am no expert

 

as usual the answers lie with the UN..doubt they'd be up for doing much though
