Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe demented moron and bottom-feeding idiot

President Robert Mugabe demented moron and idiot

Arrest me you bottom-feeding low IQ moron.

You know there’s a reason the US military and Special Forces stayed out of africa for decades and moron boy Mugabe is showing the world why.

And if you live in africa, europe, canada, or any other socialist/communist country do not post on this thread else you become subject to arrest. That is the socialist/communist (or low IQ dictator) way.

'Merica, the last free nation on the planet.




(And on Africa, anyone seen the statists on the white farmer murders????? They are starting to skyrocket. And more than a few black african “leaders” are calling for the murder of white farmers. )








The Latest: American accused in Zimbabwe to stay in jail

HARARE, Zimbabwe – The Latest on American woman accused of subversion in Zimbabwe (all times local):

3:20 p.m.

An American woman charged with subversion in Zimbabwe for allegedly insulting the president will remain in police custody this weekend after appearing in court for the first time.

Martha O'Donovan is accused of calling 93-year-old President Robert Mugabe a "sick man" in a Twitter post that included a photo illustration of Mugabe with a catheter. She denies the allegations as "baseless and malicious."

The court on Saturday dismissed a request by O'Donovan's lawyers to strike down the subversion charge, arguing that police didn't inform her of it when she was arrested Friday morning.

Lawyer Rose Hanzi says they will approach the High Court for bail on Monday. O'Donovan also is charged with undermining or insulting the authority of the president.

12:30 p.m.

An American woman charged with subversion in Zimbabwe for allegedly insulting the president on Twitter has appeared in court.

A lawyer for 25-year-old Martha O'Donovan, Rose Hanzi, told the court on Saturday that the arrest was illegal because police did not explain the reasons for it when O'Donovan was taken from her home Friday morning. The arresting officer is being questioned in court.

O'Donovan is accused of calling 93-year-old President Robert Mugabe a "sick man" in a Twitter post that included a photo illustration of the president with a catheter.

The charge of subversion carries up to 20 years in prison.

O'Donovan has denied the allegations as "baseless and malicious."

It was the first arrest since Mugabe last month appointed a cybersecurity minister, criticized by activists as targeting social media.

"HARARE (Reuters) - Four tanks were seen heading toward the Zimbabwe capital Harare on Tuesday, witnesses said, a day after the head of the armed forces said he was prepared to “step in” to end a purge of supporters of the vice president who was sacked last week....."

Long read but interesting as it lays out some of the factions involved.

The American Constitution insists on the right of all citizens to bear arms so that they never need to contend with a Mugabe-type leader. Americans pay a high price for unfettered access to guns with shootings quite common all over the country. When you see what a dictator can do in a few short years, the price of bearing arms is cheap compared to the alternative.
Mugabe has taken his country from being the breadbasket of Africa under White rule, to the worlds poorest country. He has even lost his own currency and has had to adopt the old enemies currency, the US dollar. He has broken that one too and is on the way back to the 3 billion percent inflation suffered a few years ago under his Communist inspired economic transformation.

Zimbabwe crisis: Army takes over, says Mugabe is safe

Zimbabwe crisis: Army takes over, says Mugabe is safe

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-41992351

"The military has taken control in Zimbabwe but said President Robert Mugabe, in power since 1980, was safe.

After seizing state TV, an army spokesman announced it was targeting people close to Mr Mugabe.

South Africa's President Jacob Zuma later said he had spoken to Mr Mugabe who had indicated that he "was confined to his home but said that he was fine".

The move may be a bid to replace Mr Mugabe with his sacked deputy, Emmerson Mnangagwa, BBC correspondents say.

The dismissal of Mr Mnangagwa last week had left Mr Mugabe's wife Grace as the president's likely successor.

Heavy gun and artillery fire could be heard in northern parts of the capital Harare early on Wednesday...."

Looks like they got rid of his supporters.

Zimbabwe’s Military Asserts Control; President Mugabe Confined to His Home

I have no practical knowledge of the AO. However, I explained to my teenage sons that the army was patiently waiting for the old man to die and could work with his deputy

Subsequently Mugabe ousted his number 2 and attempted to set up his wife whom the army could not tolerate. So, I told them, they decided to adjust the situation.

We had a good laugh when the army denies it’s a “Coup” but instead uses the term “Bloodless Correction”.

So, it was the military that took over the country. I was wondering about that. According to Breitbart, they wrote that the media had taken it over. Talk about a bunch of hard core journalists.

Looks like the "media" might have taken control of the state broadcasting station - military took the country.

Presumably, the military will now negotiate for an acceptable successor - expressly not his wife (Grace Mugabi).

Apparently they took control of the media long enough to announce things on TV; probably critical step for them.

Some info from Deutsche Welle:
Quote:
Armored vehicles and soldiers were seen throughout the capital city, Harare, Wednesday morning as many people rushed to withdraw money from banks.
Sorry folks, Grace already hit the cash stash & fled to Namibia where the Bushmen can teach her how to do an Ostrich omelet in the sand.

The big problem with all of this is that the military are the people who have been supporting Mugabe for 35 years. They are a bunch of thieves and gangsters themselves. Just because Mugabe is out, it does not mean that whoever replaces him is any better. There is not one country in Africa that has improved itself after Colonial rule. Majority rule has meant a long slide downwards in every measure of human progress. There is absolutely no reason why Zimbabwe will buck this trend.
Thre will be a brief upswing while the west pumps money into the country to try to give it a fresh start, but the old habits of theft and confiscation of assets will resurface and the country will continue its downward slide.
The journey has no end until the people come up with a jolt as they crash into the back of the cave wall.
The new government will beg whites to come back. They will give the farms back to the original white owners, but only the stupid or desperate will return because they know that as soon as it is all prosperous again, the politics of black envy will kick in again and they will steal it all back again.

I don't know, seems the somali's got a bit better at being pirates! (At least for a few years). And they have all become quite adept at killing each other!!!

Is the west even as relevant in Africa as it once was?

On my visits I noticed a scary number of inbound/outbound flights to China.

Considering Mugabe's ZANLA was directly supported by China and won, and the naive west and the Soviet Union's ZIPRA lost, I'd be thinking what happens in Beijing would be more relevant in Harare than what happens in Washington DC.

I heard from a couple Rhodesian/Zimbabweans that a big chunk of Zim's fertile land is run by Chinese outfits.

Maybe the next generation of "war veterans" who were born after the war will go after Chinese economic targets since the white and western interests are largely gone or already confiscated.
