Mugabe tells the Americans there will "never" be regime change in Zim - since when have they voted in Zim. By W Mukori

One of the things the white colonialists used to do was speak for the blacks. "Our blacks are very happy with this! They are very happy about that!" they would say. How patronizing! Robert Mugabe has become as oppressive as the what colonialists and, worse still, just as hypocritical and patronizing.

Having denied the blacks a fair of the country's wealth and vote in the governance of the country the white added insult to injury by denying the blacks a voice. The whites took it upon themselves to tell the blacks they must be gloriously happy being exploited and treated as a third class citizen in the country of their own forefathers. 

It does not matter how many time the white told the blacks they were happy being exploited and treated as third class citizens the truth is the blacks were not happy. No human being is ever happy about being denied their freedoms, their basic human rights and dignity. 

The white racists tried to dehumanize the blacks but failed because it is not for another mortal to deprive another of their God given humanity.

Zimbabwe's struggle to end white colonial domination and exploitation was meant to reaffirm the blacks's humanity by restoring their freedoms and human rights including the right to a meaningful say, vote, in the governance of the country and the right to life itself. Little did Zimbabweans know in 1980 when the country attained her independence that we were removing the white colonial oppressors only to replace them with black oppressors. 

It does not matter what Mugabe and his Zanu PF cronies say the fact of the matter is the regime has systematically denied the overwhelming majority of black Zimbabweans their freedoms and basic human rights including the right to free, fair and credible elections. 


"You get countries like France that think they can run our affairs. America has been quite open, they say they can change regimes and in Zimbabwe they say they will change. I say never. That is why I am still here, because regime change will never come," he said.


Yes Mr Mugabe you are still president of Zimbabwe 36 years after independence because Zimbabwe is a de facto one-party cum one-man dictatorship. You laid the ground for it soon after independence by destroying all the country’s democratic institutions and have even killed many innocent black and white Zimbabweans to accomplish your goal. Over 30 000 Zimbabweans have been murdered for selfish political gain.


Since when have the Americans or any other foreign nationals cast a vote in Zimbabwe? So how has Mugabe denied the Americans “regime change” in Zimbabwe if they have never ever cast a vote to demand regime change? It is the people of Zimbabwe Mugabe has cheated by denying them a meaningful vote in free, fair and credible elections to decide whether or not there should be regime change.


Mugabe could not achieve his no-regime-change mantra and still hold free, fair and credible election that is nonsense, it is an oxymoron. It is not the Americans he has denied the right to free, fair and credible elections but follow black Zimbabweans.


It is the Zimbabwean electorate in a truly free and fair democratic election, who alone decide who governs the country and not some select group of individuals regards of their position in society. It is not the Americans Mugabe is denying regime change but the people of Zimbabwe.


Just like the white racists before him, Mugabe has been riding roughshod over our freedoms, hopes and dreams but to add insult to injury he tell us this is what we wanted and are very happy about it. What chutzpah!


Mugabe is a corrupt, incompetent and murderous tyrant, he can say what he please but history will catch up with him just as it did catch up with Ian Smith and his fellow white colonialists! As for regime change; in 1965 Ian Smith said they would be no black majority rule in “a thousand years”, his regime did not last for more than 15 years; Mugabe’s reign of terror will not last for much longer now. Zanu PF is imploding as the party members fight over who is to take over after him but the coup de grace is coming from the economic meltdown. 36 years of gross misrule have taken its toll and economic recovery is impossible with regime change!


  1. President Mugabe has stayed in power for the last 36 years because Zimbabwe is a de facto one-party cum one-man dictatorship where individual freedoms and basic human rights have been denied. President Mugabe is a incompetent, corrupt and murderous tyrant whom the people of Zimbabwe have failed to remove from power because he rigs elections to ensure there is no regime change.

    The foundations of this Mugabe dictatorship were laid soon after independence when the ty-rant undertook an orgy of brutal oppression and murder of PF Zapu members and supporter to eliminate the only other viable political party stopping him imposing a one-party state. Over 20 000 innocent Zimbabweans were murdered in these Gukurahundi years. PF Zapu capitulated and Zimbabwe has been a de facto one-party state ever since.

    Tyrants are notorious for fabricating stories to justify their abuse of power and President Mu-gabe is no exception in this, indeed he is a grandmaster of it. But of all the nonsense that has come out of that tyrant's mouth claiming that by denying us our freedoms and rights includ-ing the right to free and fair elections and the right to life itself is denying the Americans re-gime change takes the biscuit!

    I agree President Mugabe knows that regime change is now a certainty. Zanu PF has implod-ed and the economic meltdown is a runaway train he has lost all hope of reviving. It is in his nature as a ruthless tyrant with so much dirty to hide to put a brave face and hang on to power to the bitter regime-change end.

    My prediction is President Mugabe will be forced out of office in the next few months; he will not be in power after 2018 elections at the latest. As for his end, he will be lucky to be forced out of office and allowed to live; when the Tsunami of bottled public anger finally bust out the people will corner and kill him as happened to Colonel Gaddafi!

    A summary execution is barbaric but it will prove beyond doubt that the people of Zimbabwe had wanted regime change all these years and President Mugabe had cheated them and insulted them by claiming he was cheating the Americans.

    1. 36 years of a corrupt, incompetent and murderous tyrant is a long time; we are looking at at least two generations whose lives have been damaged for life. It is going to take the nation another three generation, at least, to recover to where we were economically in 1980. This is too high a price to pay for gratifying the ego of a mentally retarded tyrant and a handful of his cronies. Only a stupid idiot would boast about how he has rigged the elections to stop regime change when the price to the nation is costed in human misery and tens of thousands of human lives murdered in cold blood for selfish political gain.

      It is important that when there is regime change that a thorough investigation is carried out to establish those responsible for rigging elections and other serious crimes against the people and they guilty are punished!

    Every time President Mugabe has felt his hold on power threatened he has resorted to vote rigging and brutal violence as we saw notably during Gukurahundi and in 2008 and 2013 elections. Each time he has tried to explain what happened, he has made a complete ass of himself.

    "The British did not know what hit them!" he boasted following the rigged 2013 elections. How rigging Zimbabwe elections punish the British but not the ordinary Zimbabweans is something only a sick mind would come up with.

    Thank God the reign of terror is coming to an end; the writing is on the wall - REGIME CHANGE!

    Mugabe was cocksure he would deliver mass prosperity but that did not happen, did it?

    Having failed to deliver mass prosperity the tyrant and his cronies were confident they, at least, would live in comfort and luxury for all time. Whilst Mugabe and his family are living in luxury, indeed their luxurious have gone up in leaps and bounce and knows no limit, the rest are sinking into the despair of abject poverty with the rest of us.

    The mass prosperity did not happen for povo or did it happen for the chefs, did it? Indeed Zanu PF is imploding right now precisely because the members are in a dog-eat-dog fight for the scrap of power and wealth in the hope it will save them too from sinking into the abyss.

    The only thing that would save Zimbabwe from sinking even deeper into the economic abyss and political chaos is for the nation to implement democratic reforms and hold free and fair elections. I do not need to tell you Zanu PF will not win free and fair elections, we all know that and have knew that for decades, at least.

    “Removed my a###.kkk,” you said. Yes remove Mugabe, Mnangagwa and you’re a### too, whoever you think you are! The writing is already on the wall; regime change is coming. Mugabe and his Zanu PF cronies never thought it would happen; they thought themselves gods but now they know they are mortals and never to say never.

  4. Hear, hear!

    I was both surprised and disappointed by South African students' failure to see President Mu-gabe for the corrupt, incompetent and murderous tyrant he is and therefore of the damaging influence he has already caused in SA. One thing South Africans must cherish above all else is their right to have a meaningful free and fair vote and I expected them to guard this right jealously. I expected them to be therefore wary of their leaders getting bad influence from someone like President Mugabe, who is known for rigging elections.

    When President Mugabe gave his speech justifying rigging elections on the shaky grounds that it is the Americans who want regime change in Zimbabwe; I expected all South Africans and the students in particular to denounce the lie and reminding their own leaders that they will fight any moves on their part to institute a similar vote rigging ethos.

    I hope, for SA's democratic sake, that Nomazulu's views above are shared by many South Af-ricans.

    Yes! Voetzek Zuma, voetzek Mugabe!
