President Mugabe a typical British built to last Invention

The British have given the World a lot of good and bad inventions in the past three centuries. One such invention which negatively affects the wellbeing of every Zimbabwean today is President Mugabe himself.
Human character is a mythical composite resulting from Environment, Challenge, Counter-reaction, Education or lack of, Culture, Emulation, Curiosity, Influence which are all knitted together to produce one person. The character of President Mugabe is typically of British mould. I can best describe him as a British Product.
British Products have an outstanding uniqueness. They are not comparably to any on the market place. They are designed to last just like my President. Age is not an issue, they function even long after their prescribed date of expiry. They endure the test of time. They excel in the duty they are deployed, good or bad. They have a documented explanatory history. They do not succumb to pressure, stress or strain. They have a reason to be there, good or bad. They stand out in the Market place. They create a lasting indentation where ever they are used. They do not fail in duty for which they are deployed. They are always ahead of creativity so much that competition against them can suffer overwhelming failure. British Products always come with small letters detailing why it is impossible to drag them to court if they cause injury, damage or death. Be it a Landrover, a Concode, Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin, Mini, Vauxhall, Westfield, Bristol or Lotus. They may be few in the Market, but they are British,and designed to last. Quality is considered over quantity. This is same with the description of President Mugabe.
President Mugabe grew up in a Mission run by the British in Rhodesia. He did not learn African traits but British. What he regards as perfect is anything that is of gain to himself and generated by the muscles of those who have no choice.
Mugabe speaks English better than most of English people. He speaks the Queen's quality English and he does everything likewise.
Mr Mugabe feels threatened in the face of a challenge and creates an environment where a challenge is an offence if it aims against his interests. Like the British, a friend to him is a person who will never say a critical word against his will. His will must always be of capital gain to him.
Mr Mugabe is planning to build a new capital at his hometown. A vast grazing land he used to herd cattle will soon be turned into one of Zimbabwe's super high street. This happens regardless of children dying of malnutrition in Shurugwi and Khezi. People in Shurugwi or Khezi are not Zezuru and they do not matter that much. What matters is that Mugabe and his best men must gain in good or bad times.
I always wonder why Mugabe so much hates the British after Colonialism was long defeated. He hates them because he knows they know his ways. They also hate him because he has copied their capitalist instrumentation and used it religiously to gain wealth at the demise of others.
Mugabe is probably the only man in History who has ever punished the English and got away with it. If Mugabe was not a British invention, he would long have been swept aside using the UN or Nato. The problem with Mugabe is that he is a British invention which knows when and how to use the UN to fulfil an objective just like the British.
Being a resilient British invention uniquely of African origin, Mugabe has puzzled the World even at old age. A typical British Product that will never yeild.
He has also used the Divide and Rule British Patent to control Zimbabweans. MDC, Zapu, MDC-T will NEVER UNITE. They are cheated to feel safe in their divided state. Just as it was in South Africa 1960. People were kept in groups of Zulu, Xhosa, Venda, Sotho, Afrikaner, Coloured and Asian. Each group was told by the ultimate ruler that the other group was bad. These divisions made the Afrikener the Chief Ruler until the ANC destroyed the fake and imaginative divisions. But, they is no ANC in Zimbabwe. As long as there is no opposition which successfully teaches people to unite and ignore artificially designed divisions, Mugabe's Divide And Rule will thrive for ever.
MDC, Mavambo, Zapu and MDC-T must just brace themselves for a perpetual office of the opposition.
If the British had not Colonised Zimbabwe in 1894, Mugabe would be a humble retired School teacher and Zimbabwe would be a better place on planet Earth. It is imported British DNA that my President copied and encrypted into his veins that makes him what he is.
Each and every Zimbabwean ridiculed all around the World is a victim of one of Britain's best inventions, Mugabe!!!
