Soccer rules must also apply to politics

Dear Zimbabweans,

We are a great nation blessed with abundant natural resources and very hard-working people. However as Africans we need to understand our history in order to move forward. I'm not a racist but just being realistic... believe me these westerners don't really like us or view us as fellow human beings. All they want is to use, abuse, misuse and dump us. Think of slavery.

Secondly they want to exploit Africa's natural resources. Think of colonialism. To achieve this they ferment chaos and wars by overtly and covertly supporting certain individuals to topple those governments who don't tow their lines and install puppet governments. Think of neo-colonialism which is the very reason why Africa is suffering. Yes we have a lot of Judas Iscariots amongst ourselves.

The recent events in Zimbabwe left me wondering why soccer rules do not apply to politics? Here a team is heavily sanctioned for the behaviour of its supporters. All those who call for strikes and demonstrations must pay for any damages and loss incurred thereafter.

Food for thought.
