It WAS a beautiful country.

It is a crying shame but what riles me most is that SA has long backed Uncle Bob to the hilt instead of being a voice of reason in the regionand demanding politival change. Unfortunately it also looks as if SA will head down the path of self destruction once Zuma sits firmly at the helm.

The destruction of Zim is beyond belief. When I was but a wee boy RSA was the economic powerhouse of Africa but Rhodesia was the jewel of the continent. One man with the support of his cronies (Nujoma, Kenyata and, to a lesser extent, Mandela has destroyed all this). My heart bleeds for Africa but enough of my family's blood has been spilt there to make me not return except for short visits.

Uncle Bob is said to be one of the richest men in the world - while his people starve!

He has been pocketing (in offshore banks) the foreign exchange coming into the country for years.

Zimbabwe has "peace-keeping" troops in the Congo. Do you think they are there simply to assist in the Congo? Or, is someone paying? In diamonds? In US$? The troops are being payed peanuts.

Any wonder that Bob will not hand over control of the security forces in the current (failed) "power-sharing deal"?

Have a look at the palace he built for himself HERE.

He will not give up what he has without a fight. And, face the possibility of serious charges.
