    No great loss. Zim has a lot of issues. Most were due to RM.

    Wonder if the question had been asked in Bulawayo (Ndebele instead of Shona) if the answers would have been different.

    To those still in Zimbabwe, living there, other than the faces and names, has anything changed since Mugabe was booted?

    Based on what I heard while there last month;

    Roadblocks are less of a shakedown.

    Pretty much everything else is the same or worse.

    On balance, things are worse today than during RM.

    Well keep in mind, much of the populace was conditioned to sing his praises unless they wanted to catch a case of bullet to the cabeza. So of course they're gonna be all smiles n' stuff

    Absolute scumbag. Good riddance and not a day too soon. May all that protected him and turned a blind eye to his human rights abuses rot alongside his memory.

    Been reading the latest news out of Zim. Food shortages, malnutrition, 80% unemployment, high inflation and now there's a conflict on where Mugabe will be buried.

    I would just have thrown him off a bridge for gator food, but I would rather have seen him thrown off the bridge alive.

    I wonder what Grace is up to? She's a rich lady now that she's inherited all of his wealth.

    I was taught not to speak ill of the dead, so I won't. Now, if his widow can hurry up and join him in his resting spot

    *A post by Cyndi Barker on the death of Mugabe*

    Beggars and Exiles
    On the death of Mugabe

    I write this for my fellow country men, women and children...

    Oh the time has finally arrived
    The day of reckoning
    The day when you face your maker,
    I hope you cower before him
    In shame
    For all the dishonour you have brought upon the children of Zimbabwe,
    What legacy to leave behind you!
    Imagine how you will be remembered by history?
    You, who tried to re-write it
    You, who took and green and living thing,
    A people literate and strong,
    A growing, thriving economy
    Full of industry and hope,
    A waved your clenched hand
    And said this is mine!
    Pamberi!
    But it was one step forward and ten steps back
    You, who spoke against colonialism
    And then made our country a satellite of China,
    And in less than four decades
    Turned us all into beggars and exiles
    While you wreaked a horrible reign of fear and terror
    Over us all,
    Dividing us with your hateful Rhetoric,
    And the land which you grabbed for your inner echelons,
    The elections you blatantly rigged time and time again,
    Stealing everybody’s right to choose,
    And the opposition you killed off,
    Biting the hands that fed you
    And sending farmers running
    paralysed with fright for their lives,
    While you butchered what was left,
    Leaving people on their knees with starvation and dread,
    While you ate cake,
    A cake so big it could have fed us all,
    And the silent ghosts who haunt the mine shafts and mass graves where you threw their bodies
    They will rise up and demand retribution
    Children, you turned into orphans and prostitutes,
    Animals you sold to the point of extinction
    Our national parks you gave away wholesale to foreign eastern nations
    To pay for your greed and crippling debt
    While you lined your pockets and those of your closest allies,
    Your smug arrogance
    Your nepotism
    Corruption
    pounded a jewel to dust
    While your cronies fought over the spoils,
    I will not weep a single tear
    Or shout in jubilation
    at your passing,
    For we have all lost what we most treasured
    Our birthright
    And this has done us more damage than anything you could ever imagine,
    You departed this mortal world a tired and sick man,
    What have you got to show
    for the masquerade?
    The so-called champion of the people,
    Who was so terrified of his own shadow he travelled by motorcade
    And surrounded himself by brutal armed thugs
    And now your era is over,
    You will not be celebrated as some glorious ruler,
    Some African Messiah,
    The returning conquering hero,
    You didn’t know the meaning of the word,
    And when your statue lies rusted and defiled
    We too will remember the dictator who will not be revered as a victor
    But as a bloodthirsty murdering coward
    And a very cunning jester
    Who beguiled us all.

    *Cyndi Barker*

    No improvement, sad state of affairs really. You have to change the structure of how things are done in the government.
