Birthday Wish to Bob Mugabe
Dear Bob Gabriel Mugabe, I remember. Your birthday was February 21st.
Many think at this age you’d be as mature as Nelson Mandela, Kenneth Kaunda, Desmond Tutu, and other mature men of Africa who retired before reaching your age. But lo!
You wanted over $ 300,000 to spend on lavish stuff. How dare you spend such a mammoth amount whilst your people are dying of lack of just fifty cents? Another thing you did was to detain Roy Bennett, the junior minister for agriculture.
Mr. Bob, have you ever thought about ‘after me epoch’? Did you read the stories of Idi Amin, Adolph Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Jean Bedel Bokassa, Joseph Desire Mobutu, Gnassigbe Eyadema and others? Whenever their names are mentioned, true men spit wherever they are in annoyance and disgrace. If you don’t do something about this, soon you’ll join the list.
You’ve been in power for decades just like Yoweri Museveni, Albert Omar Bongo, Muammar Gadaffi, Denis Sassou Ngweso and others. Is there anything new you did not do that you can ad lib now?
I’m told you’ve as many as six or seven university degrees. But what are they for if they don’t enable you to read the signs of the times? What will you say on judgment day regarding deaths of innocent Zimbabweans killed by your army, hunger and maladministration ?
Think about that Bob. I wish you a happy and soul- searching belated birthday, Bob Mugabe.
