The internecine warring within the ZANU-PF the ruling party in Zimbabwe, the former Republic of Rhodesia has prompted President Robert Mugabe who has ruled the country with an iron fist for the 36 years since they were released from white bondage under the former apartheid regime, to categorically state that his successor would be elected democratically and his wife would not be the automatic choice to succeed him.
Zimbabwe was born in 1980 after years of armed struggle and political instability created by it’s supporters to pressure the ouster of white minority rule and after achieving that goal it has been Robert Mugabe who has held the country together, though most of the time on the fringes of democracy.
Robert Mugabe at the ripe age of 92 years is not getting any younger and it is not him to decide how long he would live, being a ruthless guerilla leader and now a seasoned senior politician, one of the last in the world, to know what is best for his country after he passes on.
What he has up his sleeve nobody will know but what is clear is that his death without a successor in place is definitely going to take Zimbabwe on another blood bath.
