PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe has stone-walled yet another attempt by the impotent African leaders Olusegun Obasanjo, Thabo Mbeki and Bakili Muluzi to effect a peaceful transition in Zimbabwe which wou
ld have saved (at the last minute) the economy and the livelihoods of 12 million oppressed Zimbabweans.
Since his own party knows that he is a liability of the greatest magnitude, let them terminate his presidency with immediate effect. If they do not do this then they will have lost even more credibility with a population whose patience is now at a complete end.
There is a precedent – Margaret Thatcher was dragged kicking and screaming from power by her own party in 1992 after 13 years of dictatorship.
The Conservatives did it to save the economy for the sake of the whole population, not only for the sake of their voters.
If Mugabe’s termination has to be conducted with similar means, then so be it.
