President Mugabe has arrived in Accra, Ghana for this country’s 60th independence celebrations.

The Head of State and Government and his delegation landed at Kotoka International Airport around 5.30am local time.

Ghana is two hours behind Zimbabwe.

President Mugabe was welcomed by Harare’s ambassador to Accra, ambassador Pavelyn Tendai Musaka, Ghana’s senior minister Yaw Osafo-Maafo, Tourism and Hospitality Industry Minister Dr Walter Mzembi, ambassador Stuart Comberbach, Zimbabwe embassy staff and other senior Ghana government officials.

Several Heads of State and Government or their representatives are expected to attend the celebrations today.

    This old bugger would rather be anywhere in this whole big world than at home in Harare. In Harare he is forced to witness the sadness and madness and desolation of his failed policies and leadership on a daily basis. And even an old donkey like him must have a little bit of compassion and regret somewhere deep in his heart of stone.

    And it also has the added advantage for him getting away from his Greedy Grace for even a short time. And him being able to feed his huge per diem allowance into his Dubai Bank account must be a warm comfort in this late winter of his life.
