I SAW Simba Makoni last Friday and I was stunned. This man, who has challenged the feared Robert Mugabe did not have a bodyguard or even another person in his car.
He was driving around all by himself and walking around as if he were just another citizen and not the man who has just set the country ablaze. When I saw that, any doubts I had regarding just how courageous he is evaporated. He appeared to have no fear at all.
Of course, there are those who have aligned themselves and fear that if Makoni is elected then they will have no chance to jump onto the gravy train and steal the nation blind, but to an objective observer, this was just confirmation of the inherent courage of this man.
Come March 29, I cannot wait.
