When you country is collapsing around you, when foreign companies are already fleeing the country with their foreign currency reserves, when unemployment is at an all time high, when what you desperately need is jobs, investment and hope for your people, Robert Mugabe consistently fails to deliver and does the worst thing possible.
Luckily for Mugabe, he has friends in Russia, Burma, China and no doubt with Hugo Chavez too. Te problem is for Zimbabweans that Africa, and in particular South Africa, care little about the suffering of Black People in Zimbabwe. All they care about is that Mugabe is seen to attack the now tiny white population in Zimbabwe (now less than 50,000 people).
All those people in Europe who joined the ANC to fight for human rights in Southern Africa in the 1970's and 80's must feel very let down by the ANC now.
