Mugabe takes a holiday

Just when the rest of the planet is finally has finally reached the conceptual stage of going back to work:

"Zanu-PF leader Robert Mugabe has taken a month's leave and is to spend part of it on holiday outside the country, the state-owned Sunday Mail reported". Source

I am not one of his greatest fans, but this is good news as firstly he will probably be less able to damage Zim while abroad, and secondly there might be someone with the courage of a Tatchell who will attempt to arrest the brute.

I think he would enjoy Pyongyang, although he might find it a bit chilly, and also feel a rank amateur in the beggaring / starving one's nation stakes compared to KJI.

There is a long tradition of African despots going on foreign trips and a coup occurring in their absence.

I can't help but wonder if this is a face-saving way of getting the old man out of office without him having to formally resign?

Ian - We can only hope. I would be intrigued to know who will be rolling out the red carpet for him.

Indeed, where will he go? There aren't that many places that will have him, surely?

I believe Mogadishu would suit.
