Mugabe

Could Robert Mugabe’s dictatorship be living on borrowed time? The Roman Catholic archbishop in one of the dioceses in Zimbabwe is calling on the people to take to the streets to protest Mugabe’s authoritarian rule. He is not only talking the talk but will be walking as well:

Pius Ncube, the Roman Catholic archbishop of the southern Bulawayo diocese, urged Zimbabweans to take to the streets in protest at the government’s ongoing crackdown against dissenters opposed to the government, Reuters reported.

“The biggest problem with Zimbabweans is they are cowards, myself included, but as for me I am ready to stand in front, even of blazing guns,” Ncube told a news conference.

“If only Zimbabweans are prepared to stand, so am I prepared to stand … we are not going to be bullied.”…Link

Now thats what I call moral courage. If only the Imams in the Gambia will muster the same courage and take on Yahya Jammeh’s insanity, the country will be a different place.
