Am I being unreasonable to think that Zimbabwe would be better off without this man . In a country where the average life expectancy is early 50s is it not disgusting that this 'leader' will be celebrating his 90th birthday with a £600,000 party this weekend ,when he returns from Singapore where he receives his healthcare !

Of course YANBU. You're hardly alone in thinking so.

Makes my blood boil.

LaurieFairyCake Fri 21-Feb-14 16:01:50

Lol at him being 'healthy' as the reason grin

He is an evil, murdering scumbag and the world would fairly obviously be better off without him.

I hope he rots in hell. Soon.

Can we add Kim Jung Un to the list of 'the world would be better off without ....'

DarlingGrace Fri 21-Feb-14 16:04:12

I got all excited then - I hoped this was a notification of death thread

YouStayClassySanDiego Fri 21-Feb-14 16:06:07

Well, he's one of a number of nasty bastards the world could do without.

I imagine most right thinking people would want shot of him.

I tell you who else wasn't very nice. That Hitler.

Helpyourself Fri 21-Feb-14 16:10:46

Darling me too!
grin tethers

How long before David Cameron is added to this thread grin

Floralnomad Fri 21-Feb-14 16:13:59

Someone was saying on radio 5 today that he will never just cede power because that would leave him open to prosecution ,sadly it is a case of wishing him dead.

Now Stalin. There was a monster you could rely on.

VulvaBeaker Fri 21-Feb-14 18:00:49

YANBU. It's not my phrase, but someone once called him the black Hitler and it's stuck with me. Most fitting.

Juliaparker25 Fri 21-Feb-14 18:07:19

Ahhhhh Butcher "BOB" Mugabe , A fine and decent human being Not

Awitchwithoutchips Fri 21-Feb-14 18:13:49

Shit! I got all excited thinking hurrah the old bastard is dead too! Hoping it's soon then

JaquelineHyde Fri 21-Feb-14 18:27:57

DH is Zimbabwean and still has lots of family out there. Last year his Dad was caught by government soldiers (unofficial obviously) and was beaten so badly he couldn't walk for weeks.

Everything is falling apart and yet Mugabe and his cronies continue to thrive. It makes me sick.

However, his death won't change anything, there are so many people ready to step into his place it will just be a simple replacement and then back to normal.

Yanbu. He is a murderer and has destroyed the country once described as the breadbasket of Africa. I don't see any likeness to David Cameron Foxes, last time I checked he wasn't issuing orders to pillage and murder his citizens confused

Its amazing how little attention he gets - they have been running concentration camps in NK for over 50 years. People talk about the horrors of Nazi camps, yet apparently are apathetic to thousands of people enduring that same suffering at this very moment.

chunkythighs Fri 21-Feb-14 22:21:05

I would love to understand why the African Union support the bastard so much.

phantomnamechanger Fri 21-Feb-14 22:26:11

I thought he'd died too! Really is a nasty piece of work - I know someone who's actually met him.

Tiredemma Fri 21-Feb-14 22:27:25

It's the fear that he puts into people, even thousands of miles away.

I did a night shift last year at work and was just chatting to a healthcare assistant in the nursing office about oppressive regimes (as you do.....) also in the office was a Staff Nurse from Zimbabwe, we started discussing RM but the staff nurse was terrified of engaging in the conversation. He truly feared that his opinion would somehow reach Zimbabwe and he could be in danger.

What an awful way to live. Having that fear.

wol1968 Fri 21-Feb-14 22:27:58

Hmmmm. Can't someone slip cyanide into his champagne?

IdRatherPlayHereWithAllTheMadM Fri 21-Feb-14 22:28:16

me too - thought he had died.

Agree, the atrocities are beyond inhumane, years of terror and nazi camp like conditions - hundreds of thousands in them, for minor things that are not even what we would call crimes, three generations of families wiped out, hideous wicked crimes and the international community does...nothing. The entire country is one big prison camp, far worse than iraq and libya etc.

phantomnamechanger Fri 21-Feb-14 22:31:25

I can well believe that tiredemma the thing is when you have actually seen first hand the evil corrupt regimes and the way they hold power and have people living in fear, that must stick with you and you'd fear anything was possible, because you KNOW that unbelievable, unthinkable, utterly awful things do happen

people making daft remarks about David Cameron etc need to do some research into what really goes on in the rest of the world

Piscivorus Fri 21-Feb-14 22:32:33

I am old enough to remember when we all thought Rhodesia (as Zimbabwe was then) would be improved by independence. So sad that this man has destroyed so much and so many lives into the bargain

Maybe global warming is a side effect of the fires of hell stoking up ready for him!
