The only news from Zimbabwe dominating the global headlines is not of a village in eastern province who are fighting to survive starvation but it is the alleged coup on Mugabe during his birthday celebrations in Mutare. The alleged coup has seen the arrest and charging of Giles Mutseyekwa an MDC MP, MDC youth chairman in Manicaland province Knowledge Nyamhuka, activists Thando Sibanda, Wellington Tsuro, Edwin Chekutya together with two other people.
An sane person except those at Zimbabwe's State Broadcasting Corporation and those loyal to this evil regime will bat an eyelid to these allegations. The alleged coup is another red herring thrown in by this desperate illegal regime on the onslaught of total collapse of Zimbabwe. This alleged coup was engineered to bury the bad news i.e inflation spiraling at 800%, the broken urban infrastructure, the runaway prices of daily goods, the starvation facing nearly 3 million people.
At first they painted it as a neo-colonial plot involving ex-Rhodesians when they arrested Peter Hitschmann, an ex-Rhodesian soldier at the centre of the arms cache. They now have changed their story after discovering that Hitschmann is actually a licensed arms dealer and a hunter. Now its was a coup to kill Mugabe on his way to his 82nd birthday celebrations in Mutare. According to Zanu PF script writers "the group agreed to spill oil on Christmas Pass highway when the motorcade would be approaching so that the motorcade would slip and get involved in an accident,"
Everyone knows the real issue in Zimbabwe and that Mugabe's time is up coup or no coup! For those comrades that are being continually harrased by this regime KEEP YOUR HEAD UP, YOUR STRUGGLE IS NOT IN VAIN!
