"Go hang!" Mugabe tells Americans - out of his own mouth cometh the nation's judgment. By Wilbert Mukori

Mugabe is renowned for his long winded speeches “full of sound and fury but signifying nothing” as Shakespeare would say. When he addressed the one million man-march crowd he did delivery another long winded speech with even more sound and fury and signifying nonsense.



“I belong to my people, my people say stay here, I'm not a Britain, I don't like it, I'm not America n, I'm not a Yankee, I'm not Britain, I told Blair to keep his England so I can keep my Zimbabwe,” he said at one point. (The speech would not be complete if he left out bashing the British and the Americans).



“So I belong to Zimbabwe, so they say I must go, but within the party, the outsiders why do they want Zimbabwe,to stand down, to resign, retire?

“Vanhu vanguka, ndovangati aah, chiretireyi. Ko MDC shungu, itsitsi here dzekunzwira VaMugabe kuti vaneta kana kuti kutya VaMugabe, kutya VaMugabe? So tell the paper that VaMugabe says no, you go hang, hang yourself.”



“Anyway tiri tese, I am at the service of the people. If the people tell us to go I will go, but as long as I feel I should serve the people and I will do my best as I have done in the past, I will do my best and when time comes I go.”


Mugabe is fooling no Zimbabwean with all his metaphors! He is saying here and has said the same thing on countless other occasions that it is the British and American who him to go, want regime change. And he is telling them the usual answer “Go hang!”



What makes all his panted up anger against the British and American such a phony is that neither the British nor Americans have a democratic say in who governs Zimbabwe; they never had such a say or sought to have it. It is the people of Zimbabwe who should have the democratic say but have never exercised it as Mugabe has systematically deny them the free vote by rigging the elections. It is in reality the people of Zimbabwe who often risked life and limp to try to end his incompetent, corrupt and tyrannical rule. It is the people of Zimbabwe Mugabe has said "Go hang!" repeatedly in the past and is telling on this occasion.



It is absolutely imperative that there is a thorough judiciary investigation into Zimbabwe's past elections to establish the historic facts of whether or not President Mugabe has ever rigging elections. If the investigation found that he has indeed rigged elections, then it is in the country’s political interest to punish all those responsible for treasonous crime.



By rigging elections the criminals were telling the people of Zimbabwe "go hang!" Out of their own mouth comes the nation’s judgement; we must hang them instead!


  1. This is like a mother is an abusive marriage is which she is regularly beaten and all the neighbours get to hear is the slaps, punch and kicking punctuated with the "Be quite!" barks! The beating was started not because the poor woman was screaming none has it stopped since she has not screamed. The abusive husband just wants the simpleton out there to believe sit is her screaming that incised him!

    There is overwhelming evidence that President Mugabe has blatantly rigged elections ever since the nation attained her independence; with the passage of time his popularity has sunk deeper and deeper and he has stepped up his vote rigging activities.

    In 2008 his usual subtle vote rigging of rigging the voting process complimented by some violence was not enough as the March vote showed and so he cooked that result to justify a run-off in July. He step up the violence, "declaring war" on the people as MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai rightly said as he drop out of the race.

    In 2013 he did not need to resort to the same 2008 violence as he had a well-funded vote rigging schemes which he was able to implement thanks to the MDC's failure to implement the democratic reforms necessary to stop him looted billions of dollars to fund the scheme and abuse ZEC, the Police and other State institutions who helped in rigging.

    Of course President Mugabe is guilty of rigging elections, not even SADC and AU known for turning a blind eye to dodgy elections, would endorse Mugabe's victory in the July 2008 run-off. Of course rigging elections is a very serious crime, high treason. When someone not only tamper with the electoral process but augment their vote rigging with violence, intimidation, harassment, beating and even murder, the criminals have gone beyond the point of no return.

    I have never subscribed to capital punishment but if there was even a criminal who deserves hanging then it must be the vote rigging murderous thug!

    I would rather be the barbarian who hangs the vote rigging and murderous thugs than be the barbarian who remain indifferent in the face vote rigging and murder.

  2. Yes the march was meant to show Mnangagwa and his supporters that he, Mugabe, is more popular. What Mugabe has failed to do is appreciate that the greatest threat to his continued rule was not coming from Mnangagwa but the worsening economic meltdown, the one-million man march has not created even one job.

    The bond notes are coming and the people will see the return of the 2000 to 2008 runaway inflation, food shortages, etc. Not even a ten-million men march will end the food shortages.

    President Mugabe has won his factional war to stop regime change but unless he can rig economic recovery he will in the end accept regime change!

  3. @ Nomazulu

    There was a time when the Zimbabwean populous was naïve and gullible, they believed President Mugabe would bring about mass prosperity because he said so. Ten years after independence and the reality of growing poverty was dawning on the nation, the mist of naivety was beginning to lift, and yesteryear's unconditional belief was turning to uneasy doubt. By the late 1990s the fog had completely cleared, there is not even a trace of the morning mist at midday of African heat.

    The cheering one-million man mob on Wednesday 25 May 2016 was not the naïve and gullible mob that greeted President Mugabe and his fellow Zanu PF liberation war heroes in 1980; they know Mugabe has brought them nothing but suffering and misery, they cheered because they were coerced to do so with a little carrot and a very big stick. Whatever food, drink and money the people got as bribe to cheer for the great leader it is no more than a day’s meal compare to the rest of the year of starvation ahead. Of course the people are smart enough to know they are being short changed. They were out cheering because they know the regime will make their lives even worse if they did not.
    There are reports of people in Gokwe who did not travel to Harare to join in the one-million man march having their houses burnt down as punishment! This regime has devised many subtle ways of punishing all those who dare to defy its instructions. If Zanu PF says jump, you jump or you will be sorry!

  4. The right to a meaningful, free and fair vote is the basis of good governance and President has fooled many people on this for the last 36 years but he must be nuts if he thinks he can continue to rig elections, tell the nation it is the Americans he is cheating and expect the people to believe that nonsense.

    It is the people of Zimbabwe he has been telling "Go hang!" and such gross abuse of power must never be allowed to go unpunished.

    Proving that Zanu PF has been rigging elections and using violence to achieve its goal to stop regime change is going to be a walk in the park. The investigation must be so thorough and detailed that no one will be in any doubt what these men and women have been up to. The punishment to be dished out must be very severe to leave no one in any doubt this is a very serious crime and it will never again be tolerated.

    Those the Lord chose to destroy He starts by making them mad. President Mugabe is mad with power and he has been digging himself into a great big hole. He is viewing the one-million man march as his triumpant moment but it could well be the beginning of the end of his tyrannical rule.

    President Mugabe has had a long rope and now he is hanging himself with it!

  5. Zimbabwe is but the size of one State in the USA or one province in Canada and yet here we are trying to subdivide into 8 more states or provinces? Devolution has gained traction because central government has failed to deliver, the leaders have been corrupt and incompetent. What guarantee do we have that the regional administration will not be just as corrupt and incompetent particularly when they come from the same pool as the corrupt and incompetent already in central and local government.

    We need to create a political system that will allow competent and accountable leaders to be elected in local and central government. Devolution will only create yet another layer of bureaucracy which the overburdened taxpayer will be expected to pay for and for no gain.
