There have been suggestions that Mugabe is out of touch with reality. There is another unexplored possibility: Mugabe is fully aware of the ruin he has caused to the public health sector.
If he is shocked that anything good can come out of Harare Hospital – having read Minister David Parirenyatwa’s 2013 report on “KuGomo”, where the minister discovered broken windows and Jacaranda trees growing in an unfinished annex – it is because he knows very well the extent of the decline.
Mugabe’s shock is very much like that of a killer meeting his victim a week later, alive and in good health. It is almost Macbethian. When the president exclaimed – ‘in the heart of Zimbabwe, in this hospital’ – it was a guilty man cry of horror – ‘hey, didn’t I kill you last week?’
