Mugabe fooled war vets every time for 36 years - shocked he cannot do so now. By Patrick Guramatunhu

The trouble with President Mugabe is he is a ruthless tyrant and thus per se has no regard for the rule of law and he routinely broken the law when it suits his selfish needs and then surprise, surprise he will adhere to the letter and spirit of the law like a stamp to a letter when it suits him.

“Mugabe said he is not happy with the utterances and activities of the war veterans some of which he said are tantamount to dissidentry as they are creating discord and disunity within Zanu PF,” said a ZBC report.

“The President said war veterans should act and work within the party saying the gun does not lead politics. “

It was President Mugabe himself who egged the same war veterans he now calls dissidents to harass, beat, rape and murder innocent civilians to force them to vote for the tyrant in the presidential run-off in 2008. “What was achieved by the bullet cannot be undone by the ballot!” he argued.

Today the war veterans are using exactly the same thug bullying tactics to impose Mnangagwa as his Mugabe’s successor, Mugabe wanted someone else to be his successor and so he accuses the war veterans of being thugs!

“You can everyone some of the times; fool some people every time; but what you can do is fool everybody every time!” said for USA President Abraham Lincoln.

President Mugabe has fooled most of the war veterans every time for the last 36 years but one can safely say he will now learning a very important lesson – that not even he can fool these fat headed war veterans all the time!  

The war veterans have told President Mugabe in no uncertain terms that they are the “stockholders of Zimbabwe and he is merely a stakeholder who will come and go”. He is threatening them in turn. The point is the dye has been cast there is no going back by other side now. What both sides do not understand is that the nation at large is sick and tired of these thugs imposing leaders on them. The people’s position is that there must be free, fair and credible elections!

It was US President Abraham Lincoln who said "You can fool some people all the time, you can fool all the people some of the times but you can never fool all the people all of the times."

After 36 years of fooling the war veterans, security chefs and his fellow Zanu PF leaders Mugabe must have thought that he can fool them all at all times. He is now learning that is indeed not the case.

Mugabe's whole world is now unraveling and collapsing on him; the economy is in total meltdown after decades of misrule; his party is imploding even the half wit minions are giving him the middle finger and, most serious of all, the people are sick and tired of the corruption and tyranny, they are now demanding democratic change.
