President Robert Mugabe says God has blinded colonial eyes to the country’s mineral wealth. Illustrating the incoherence of an ageing mind, Mugabe said maps from Anglo America and de Beers show vast mineral reserves. If the ‘imperialists’ were blindfolded by God, one wonders why the president is utilising their data?
Bereft of ideas, Mugabe’s pastime is amusing the citizenry with inconsequential grandfatherly fables which may as well be of ‘tsuro nagudo.’ He would do well to focus less on telling stories and deal more with bread and butter issues – mobilising the delivery of grain to GMB silos, repairing those silos and distributing food to over two million nationals who are faced with starvation.
