BIRTHDAY WISH: “ZIMBABWE PRESIDENT ROBERT MUGABE WON’T SEEK RE-ELECTION!”



Filed under : Africa, Politics

Hi guys & dolls!

.

In your excitement, I hope that you also read “BIRTHDAY WISH”. Because that I know, is the wish of so many Zimbabweans (and Africans alike) world-wide and in Zimbabwe as we help to “celebrate?” the country’s second & current President, His Excellency, President Robert Gabriel Mugabe. He turns 87 years old today and has ruled Zimbabwe since 1980, first as Prime Minister (1980 – 1987) and then as Head of State since 1987.

It is so easy to point fingers at all that President Mugabe has done to Zimbabwe and the condition of the ordinary Zimbabweans. I refuse to give him that much power simply because of the recent revolutions by the people in Egypt & in Tunisia. Change, because of the will of the people by the people, sweeping North Africa. So much so, that it was just announced that Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir will not stand in the next presidential election due in four years. You cannot tell me that the collective will of the people cannot bring about change!

It’s important to note that today also marks the day that Malcolm X died. He was/is one of the most influential African American human rights activists. He, along with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. were advocates of social justice & equality.

A recent Twitter Top Tweet (re-tweeted by 100+ people) quoting Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by fellow Zimbabwean, Zee Mabuza, spoke to my thoughts towards Zimbabwe.

Her actual tweet was:

I loved this for so many reasons. One, it told me that Zimbabweans have a place in the world. A top place. It takes WILL to make it to that top place. Two, that we are agents of change. Three, that power is in our hands. And four, we have a voice.

So as you reflect on President Mugabe’s 87th birthday (if indeed you do or care to do), I ask that you look beyond his limitations & short-comings and not complain. Choose instead to see the limitless power & extraordinary voice that YOU yield. Add your will to Zee’s will, to my will and TOGETHER…….

    My Pastor has been preaching on having compassion for the last few weeks. I want to say something really awful about this man that ruined our beautiful country, but all I am going to say is he might be living it up today, but God will have the last word onr his fate.
