Mugabe in Rome

2008-06-05 00:00

Robert Mugabe has been in Rome to attend a United Nations-sponsored summit on the global food crisis. It is not surprising that some of the delegates present have described his presence as “obscene”. The United States spokesman aptly described Mugabe's legacy as a prime example of what not to do in the management of agricultural and food policy.

Meanwhile, he is keeping food aid from certain provinces until the current rerun of the presidential election is over, leaving the strong impression that aid is available to his supporters and not to the opposition. This gross injustice is happening in a situation where the electorate has already spoken on parliamentary representation by giving the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) a majority of seats. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
