JUST about everything that can be said about the callous brutality of this regime has already been said.
But the harsh political reality is that in Zimbabwe there
is much truth in the old saying that “actions speak louder than words” and “sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me”.
It is a national tragedy that so far no one has really emerged to lead the people in defending their homes, their jobs – their very existence.
How can we criticise South African President Thabo Mbeki’s so-called “quiet diplomacy” toward Zimbabwe when we ourselves remain passive and do nothing more than issue statements condemning what is going on?
