I don't see any evidence yet that they'll be trying to do either of those things - we can but hope.

Hell, there’s still no evidence that they’ll even be able to get rid of Bob ‘n Grace. Hopefully his eventual successor isn’t going to merely take up where he left off and feather their own nest at the expense of the country.

The word 'NOW' can be added. Huzzah.

Earlier this year I was in Harare on business, and chatting to one of my colleagues there. He’s young, educated and the last person I thought would support Mugabe, but his attitude was very much better the devil you know. I sincerely hope he wasn’t right.

Well, it seems that Mugabe has been replaced by a man who was his right-hand man for decades, and is accused of brutal suppression of political rivals and vote rigging.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

At least it frees up either Mugabe for Strictly Come Dancing next year

This Emmerson bloke must hold free and fair elections soon and restore democracy to Zimbabwe to start with.

I don’t think many are convinced that he will.

Dubious claim to fame: I can nearly say I had dinner with former Zimbabwean Cabinet Minister, Nathan Shamuyarira. He came to dinner with my parents but I was very young and can't remember. I suspect I was introduced and then went to bed.
