Mugabe, not “the West”, is responsible for Zimbabwe’s impoverishment
Wednesday, August 4, 2010
Tyrant, crocodile liberator, robber of the poor. All these labels apply to Robert Mugabe who is, yet again, blaming “the West” for his own failures as a leader. In a delusional outburst which prompted foreign diplomats to storm out in disgust, he, without hint of irony, questioned “whoever told them that their will is above that of the people of Zimbabwe?" Sadly, self reflection seems to be in short thrift in Mugabe’s political armoury.
