Mugabe has no moral authority to lecture others

President Mugabe’s remarks at the 71st UN General Assembly in New York where he accused some states of fueling the refugee crisis worldwide for selfish interests are unfortunate and smack of a leader totally removed from reality on the ground in his own country. This is the same Mugabe who has caused the migration into other countries of millions of Zimbabweans through bad politics that has plunged the country into an economic crisis.

Millions of Zimbabweans are living like slaves in other countries and are too scared to return home to face an uncertain future under the ZANU PF regime. Just recently three Zimbabweans died in a disused mine while hundreds more were trapped in South Africa while desperately trying to eke a living. This is glaring testimony to the fact President Mugabe have completely failed the people.

President Mugabe’s remarks about the need for peaceful conflict resolution to avert anarchy are laughable as they fly in the face of his government’s state sponsored violence perpetrated upon peaceful protesters against his misrule. To date police brutality unleashed by his government has seen thousands of citizens being either brutalised, harassed or arrested for exercising their constitutional right to protest. He therefore does not have the moral authority to lecture anybody on conflict resolution or anything for that matter. It is astounding that despite the chaos in the country he has the audacity to stand on an international platform and accuse others of fueling the refugee crisis. President Mugabe has lived up to become one of the biggest hypocrites of our times. Given his manifest failures, we expect a bit of humility from Mugabe instead of his chosen route of hypocrisy and arrogance. We advise the international community to stop taking him seriously and dismiss his cheap stunts with the contempt they deserve.
