35 years of absolute power have absolutely corrupted and corroded Mugabe's mind!

"The best way of thanking them (our heroes) and showing appreciation is no longer to shed tears but to say we have the country you fought for, we have the natural resources you fought for and we are developing these currently," Mugabe said.

Many people have been saying Mugabe has become senile and for years I have refused to accept that, but now I have no choice but to accept it; it is clear he has lost it.

What is he wittering about "we have the country you fought for"? He is the one who dished out all the farms to his family and his Zanu-PF thugs. He knows that they have sat on these farms so that millions of prime farms have been left unused turning a net exporter of food, tobacco and other produces into a nation of beggars.

We are starving in the Garden of Eden!

Mugabe and a select few in his cabal are benefiting from the $800 billion bounty of Marange diamonds; the nation has not seen a single dollar in collected revenue from Marange. Only a certified stupid idiot would construe the grand looting and plunder in Marange as "development"!  

It was Lord Acton, 1834 to 1902, who said "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men."

After enjoying absolute power for 35 years it is clear absolute power has not only corrupted Mugabe absolutely but has corroded his mental faculty absolutely too. The man is now a certified village idiot living in his own cloud-cuckoo-land Zimbabwe, a far cry from the hell-on-earth Zimbabwe we know!
