Ahem, point of order, he w a brutal motherf*cker, I saw his results.

Calypso seems to be living in an alternative universe where, simply because the tyrant is black makes it OK, as he's one of "us".


Fifty years from now,you will see it differently as how they did with Stalin of Russia. Though brutal, he lessened white political stronghold but did immobilize the economic power. It is the next generation that should pick up where he left off.

Hugh?  Though BRUTAL.... maybe that is important? 

>did immobilize the economic power<  Are you English? that's the biggest understatement of the last century, and probably this one to come. He totally turned a buoyant economy into a basket case. Totally unnecessarily.

He didn't decide to let lose the hoards on the white plantation owners for the public good, he did it for his good, to silence those complaining about his ineffectiveness.

Just like Ide Amin screwed his nation by turfing out the Asians, leaving behind a dearth of business knowledge, Mugabe indiscriminately allowed plantations whether purchased legitimately or snaffled prior to or during the Smith regime. Many effective, efficiently, hard working, sensible land owners were violated just as badly as their black predecessors. Two wrongs NEVER make a right.

Gifting prime properties to family and friends who had NO idea how to run a farm was not only gross corruption, it was stupidity of the highest level. He F8cked the country.

Thank God at least one arsehole is dead.

It take centuries for a nation to be built after the devastated results of European colonialism.  Mugabe was a very controversial man. I need to see  more balance in economics of race.  He was n o Robin Hood. He hoarded for himself but he did make some changes.

Mugabe freed  his country from white political rule. Now the task of his black brothers and sisters isto build the black economic power. One man cannot do it all. The struggle has to continue.

Yes, but they will now have to work 200 times harder to overcome the total F.U. he made of it.
