There has been gross injustice and mugabe has spies everywhere, he has a veryt tight control through a very large inteligence organisation. His goal is to destroy MDC and white population who he believes created MDC.
Any blacks who are friends to white population are traitors and treated as such. They are beaten, raped, intimidated, tortured and locked up without trial. The justice system has buckled with firing of any supreme justice who is opposed to Mugabe's rule. No opposition is tolerated and country is ruled with an iron fist. Many were fired off cabinet, Health and Finance ministers were not supporting his reign of terror and were in Mugabe's mind increasingly disloyal.
The big question is, how long will population of Zimbabwe allow him to continue his detruction of their beautiful nation. It is increasingly hard to buy fuel, sugar, maize meal, rice and bread which are staples. There is already starvation and with drought coinciding with abusive government aids continues to spread killing those not already dying from lack of food or health services.
It is a humanitarian disaster and just going to get worse. The west has turned a blind eye with Britain afraid to bring up old hurts of colonialism and America focused on war against terrorism in Afghanistan and Iraq. Zimbabwe is not a muslim nation, it's religions are predominantly ancestral Worship, animism and Christianity.
Muabe knows that time is ticking away on grace of people and that civil uprisings are in future as people realise enough is enough. Mugabe knows he has nothing to offer general population and that any investment, entrepeneurship etc. that is encouraged is what will help country but will also ultimately also benefit white and educated black population of Zimbabwe who are against him.
It is a dilemma. On farms that are designated Mugabe sends in war veterans as squatters, often bussing them onto farms, police take no notice as sqatters begin to camp outside gates of farm often not letting farmer carry on his work or go to town to buy groceries for his family. This is exactly what Mugabe is doing to nation. As farmer starves he gives up his land or his life wichever one comes first and squatters move into house and use furniture and dress up in farmers clothes.
Not disimilar to "Animal Farm" situation can only get worse for all involved. Mugabe may ultimately want to cut population down to a manageable number so that they can all go back to subsistance farming and slash and burn methods. Training up younger members of poplulation in agrticulture and farming tobacco, cattle ranching, flowers, fruit and coffee etc. is not in plan of government. Cutting down trees and building temporary huts and reverting back to primitive farming methods is more what they forsee.
Mugabe will make sure that resources of state are used to keep as many of his supporters alive, while deliberately starving opposition to death. The only people to survive will be Mugabe loyalists. Either way Mugabe wins. The population of Zimbabwe may be doomed to mass murder in next year or so. The only other possibility is that they flee while they can and head for borders.
Power forever is name of game in Southern Africa, not only in Zimbabwe but also in Angola, Mozambique, Namibia and South Africa. In this game Mugabe is a master.
Your prayer is needed for Zimbabwe...the land of our home that is being snatched away from us daily.
