Democracy denied

Zimbabwean Pundit explains a country ruled by events bigger than Robert Mugabe:

“…It is not that we don’t care about democracy or having the right politicians in place or any other high sounding question you may want to throw at us. No, our nonchalance is evidence only that we care about other things more than we care about politics and governance. We care more about living to see tomorrow. It is all about survival now. Such is the result of how simple and unsophisticated a society [Mugabe’s] ZANU-PF has made us.”

International pressure on Mugabe must increase, but then, Western moral legitimacy has never been lower.
