To re-iterate I fully support the idea of land reclamation and I do agree that Zimbabwe owes a debt of gratitude to Mugabe for taking up leadership in Zimbabwe's struggle for independence. But it is clear that it is past time for him to step down. We conscious Pan-Africanists cannot be blinded by talk of British neo-colonialsm and the likes. We cannnot be blinded to the very real problem of presidency for life. We cannot support the lack of training for future leadership, laws agains insulting Mugabe and other foolishness. If Mr. Mugabe was serious about nation building he would have stepped down long ago, Zimbabwe would be on it's 4th or 5th president by now. The land reclamation project would have been done in a manner that did not disrupt food supplies to the people
Perhaps the MDC is a stooge for Europe and America. Who's fault is that? Had the Zanu-PF had the foresight to do as Fanon had discussed in propagating a national consciousness and had properly groomed leadership such "stooges" should they exist would not be able to gain traction.
It is time for Mugabe to go. Full stop.
