Colin Gardner’s “Zim is a disgrace” (The Witness, June 19) refers. He summarises nicely the farce that is unfolding in southern Africa under the name of democracy. It is patently obvious that no such thing exists in Zimbabwe, and that Mugabe and his henchmen are liars, cheats, murderers and terrorists. Gardner opines that Zimbabweans don’t know the true meaning of democracy. Unfortunately a little arrogant I think. The pathetic response to the Zimbabwean crisis of South Africa’s so-called leaders, together with the incredible fascist and racist utterances of many public From Eskom to fiscal management to Zimbabwe, we are treated with absolute disdain by individuals who caucus in secret, decide in secret, and operate with immunity and impunity.
