Bang the drum for Zimbabwe

Ever since 2002, there has been a vigil each Saturday outside the Zimbabwe embassy in the Strand..... until there are free and fair elections.

I don't know about you, but Mugabe's rampage through his country's inheritance has left me disbelieving. These days, there seems to be a glimmer of hope - I do hope so. there was a joy to the people singing and dancing that is often absent. I hope that by the time you come to look, there is no more vigil. I fear there may be for a while.

Funnily enough I went there today to give the people in the vigil support. Sadly, I do not share your optimism. Even if Mugabe goes the evil he has done will live after him for a long time. If nothing else, there will be a settling of scores.

Helen, I'm sorry to say I agree with you. I was listening today to a BBC reporter explaining the currently likely outcomes, and it sound like zanu pf are likely to be around for a while. Just so many have been killed and done away with.

I wonder why NATO countries don't invade and take out the evil regime. It's just as bad, if not worse than Iraq. Perhaps if there was oil there...
