Give us cash, Bob tells Diasporans

via Give us cash, Bob tells Diasporans – New Zimbabwe 30/03/2015

PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe has urged Zimbabweans who are in the diaspora to emulate Ethiopians who have changed the face of Ethiopia with their remittances back home.

According to the ZBC Mugabe said this during his meeting with the Zimbabwean community led by their patron, Ambassador Albert Chimbindi and the President of the AmaZimbabwe Association, Rodney Kiwa in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Mugabe said Zimbabweans should be law abiding in their host countries and should not deny their children a chance to learn their mother tongue.

Reports last week said Zimbabweans living in Ethiopia were asked to contribute $50 each towards the hosting of Mugabe at a local hotel in Addis Ababa.

Kiwa was quoted saying about 80 people were expected to meet Mugabe and as such each member of the community was expected to contribute towards the event.

    Are these Ethopian-based Zimboz missing Mugabe so much that they would pay to see him dosing & hallucinating before them? Why can’t they just come home & see him every other day on his visit to Zimbabwe from his China-Far East base? That way they wont even have to pay to see him – as if they want to watch some movie. Each time he comes to Zim from his foreign base they can even go & join the hordes of zanu pf women’s league & youth league in dancing & ululating for the dear leader @ Hre international Airport.

    Certainly, no rocket science to tell that whoever paid the said amount are not ordinary people who ran away from Mugabe’s misrule to Ethiopia. It’s nothing but a pack Mugabe-appointed embassy staff who were just singing for their super. Unfortunately, that is inspite of the reality that nowadays they go for months without pay. Shaaammmeee!

      They have exhausted all those diamonds, which in reality, was an exaggerated quantity forecast. Because he is conscious of the fact that what he is doing is completely out of the ordinary, for someone in that position of authority, milking the nation’s purse . He is now asking for handouts from the very people he forced into exile. This is not surprising especially when you have a spoilt and demanding wife. Mugabe knows very well that he cannot not sustain his appetite for flying without outside help hence, he has allowed himself to be humiliated by circumstances outside his own control.

    zimbabweans in the diaspora have kept Zimbabwe afloat financially for many years – thank you all out there.
    when they ask for democratic reforms, including the right to vote, mr mugabe should listen.
    but sadly, it is not his style to listen to anyone.

    What a bloody cheek. Mugabe can get stuffed. He has murdered so many innocent Zimbabweans, and stolen so much that us diasporans have compassion for all of the people he has abused – not his Zanu gravy train. We need to donate money to have Mugabe prosecuted at the International Criminal Court – not some International Hotel for him to have hallucinations and dementia in like we saw the pictures of him wining and dining in Singapore. He could have made Zimbabwe into a Singapore if we was not so self centred, egotistical and psycopathic. How may people has Zan murdered in the 35 years of independence?

    How were these Zimbabweans asked or forced to pay for seeing Mugabe if they paid they did so because they wanted to. Im trying to imagine if Mugabe was to come to the U.K. , how would anyone force me to pay or contribute towards his visit? and why would i want to see him?

    We are willing to contribute to improve our Zimbabwe’s economy, BUT we are also more than willing to contribute in changing the political landscape. WE WANT TO VOTE MR PRESIDENT. We are not Zimbabweans when you need money but when its election time you call us “BOTTOM CLEANERS”

    His sycophants say he is a man of principle, when all we see over the decades is an inconsistent megalomaniac whose only treasure is his inflated ego. He is not his own man. It’s fine that some Africans, rightfully timid to do it themselves, love to hear him lampooning whites, imperialists, to the extent of electing him to the head of their largest bureaucracy for that purpose, yet in the end nothing material will come of this failure to manage power progressively, whether his or a superior one. He is a con man of unsurpassed shamelessness.

    Mugabe is a master manipulator. In front of pple, he acts so genuine and innocent but his actions say the opposite. Zimbabweans have been manipulated by this criminal for too long.
    I pitty those who still believe his lies by donating whatever monies, whether in Zim or outside

    Given him money for WHAT? To splurge on his numerous useless trips abroad with hordes of good for nothing hangers on? Do you all remember how he mocked Zimbabweans in the UK for running away from Zimbabwe to wash British buttocks? Mugabe, like all thuggish dictators, has no shame.

    The people in the diaspora send to families to help them put food on the table. seek medical treatment etc. to enable them to survive and now the geriatric is targeting them to scrounge from them after looting from the coffers and flying paying for medical treatment abroad-the geriatic is a real scrounging greedy man

    Thank you Mr President for asking money from your sons and daughters but at the present moment all people leaving out zim see no meaning in doing that as they are not allowed to vote and also there is lack of accountability in your goverment
