Zimbabwean optimism disappears
To many people across the world the thing in Zimbabwe is well, something tragic but a joke that is happening miles away. It is part of a circus and mountains don’t really have to move for something to happen.
They say well, the Zimbabweans have already gone through so much so they can hold on a little longer. But meanwhile a humanitarian crisis of mind0numbing proportion grips the masses and holds them by a string over a blade.
Basically the people are screwed because two men with egos can’t woirk together.
And to top it all off, the optimism is gone. They dont feel the sincerity of either side. In fact one ardent MDC supporter I was talking to yesterday said they should just let Mugabe rule until he dies so people can move on.
It is resignation because the faith is gone. The belief that the MDC would be different is gone. And a depression sets in. Some want to get out but haven’t the foggiest where they will go to because they were not planning to leave were they?
So to hell with them, they say… after all, they are at the end of the day, politicians and it is part of a spin…
Ban Ki Moon seems to have said smething that makes sense for the first time. He has called for a decisive summit this time. That is a summit that says this is the way to go or else. But after how many people have died?
What must the human cost be before these idiots realise what is going on? When the best have died or left and the country is in ruins, what will they govern over?
