    The Zimbabwe Politics Thread

    For all discussions relating to Zimbabwe politics. Will Mugabe run for another term? Starting to get a bit long in the tooth. Who will succeed him when he finally kicks the bucket? Will the country make a comeback from the absolute cesspit that it currently is?

    Doubt it, Mugabe's been little more than a figurehead for the military for a while now. They seem pretty happy squatting on the diamond mines and letting the rest of the nation rot.

    He's still floating around the scene, but it's hard to actually achieve any significant change when the Government keeps arresting, beating up and murdering your political allies. Tsvangirai himself isn't a figure that gives me a lot of hope. He's really a bit of an old fashioned trade union thug. There've been a few rumours of intimidatory violence within the MDC against potential political rivals.

    Been reading quite a lot about the ongoing situation and I've come to the conclusion, after much thought and reflection, that I would certainly bang Grace Mugabe if her husband was to pass away.

    It's not her looks per se, but the attraction of a despot's wife. I would hope that she would manhandle me. Throw me around like a naughty white farmer in a Dubai 7 star hotel room with burly minders guarding the door.

    It's worth noting that Mugabe is in his 90s and looks as fit as a fiddle. That's a man who has been getting lots of cardio every night.

    And the expected happened... like it normally does.

    "Largely the same people that caused this crisis have been recycled. The honeymoon comes to an end and reality dawns. His concern seems to have been rewarding those who brought him to power and Zanu-PF unity," he said.

    grace-mugabe-complains-over-family-allies-treatment-report

    Poor darling....

    In July this year, Grace reportedly moved to expand her Mazowe "empire" in Mashonaland province by grabbing the "iconic state-owned Mazowe Dam - almost a century after it was built - and surrounding tracts of land".

    The move at the tie heightened her "bitter fights with local villagers", who were barred from using the huge dam, as she also wanted to privatise it.

    Grace's empire included a huge double-storey mansion, a dairy farm, an orphanage and a school. She also had plans to build a university.

    But as the Zimbabwe Independent reported on Friday, Grace was now complaining about threats to her businesses and property, citing the terms of the agreement secretly reached as part of the deal for Mugabe to resign.
