President Robert Mugabe
That President Mugabe in his late years is an embarrassment for the nation is an understatement. As if that is not enough he is surrounded by a useless, lazy and ineffective deadwood Cabinet which has failed to offer him proper advice on matters of national interest. If all Zimbabweans, including those in his cabinet were to speak candidly and decisively, truthfully and frankly, honestly and boldly, they would admit that Zimbabwe cannot afford another day with this man in office.
Mugabeâ€™s gallivanting all over the globe, and spending on himself is robbingÂ Zimbabweans of freedom and opportunity by putting their priorities last. While the government has said that there is no money the Presidentâ€™s spending this year alone could have made a huge difference to different sectors of the economy. President Mugabe needs to take just one leaf out of Tanzanian President John Magufuliâ€™s book of a servant leadership and retain what little dignity he has left.
The people of Zimbabwe are tired of the false promises and suffering, we deserveÂ better, and getting President Mugabe and his cabinet out is the cure for our sick country. We can never maintain our dignity as a nation as long as we haveÂ President who takes a lead in the expenditure of public funds and thinks it is Ok to take off on spur of the moment jaunts halfway across the world for a cultural event when his country is ranked as one of the poorest in the continent. At some point Zimbabweans will need to rise up against such kind of leadership that does more harm than good.
As MDC condemn strongly this flagrant display of wasteful expenditure by Mugabe.
