Zimbabwe: 'Zim Not for Sale' on AllAfrica.com
"He said the United Kingdom had no moral authority to preach to Zimbabwe about democracy as the Zimbabweans fought the former coloniser in order to bring about such democracy."
We may hate what is going on in Zimbabwe. I do. But sadly I believe we must at least hear Robert Mugabe. The history is complex. But below the history is a moral foundation, that colonisation was wrong and that the offence of colonialism still seems to have power. Where the ties of colonialism are still being fought twenty seven years after Independence, and the threat of neo-colonialism is being raised, this must be more than just the (very obvious) rhetoric of a tyrant.
We still owe this nation an apology.
