Picture of the Week: The fall of Mugabe

Despot Robert Mugabe takes a tumble

 

Robert Mugabe is a man who is best known for a tumbling currency and the decline of his country. This week, however, he, himself, took a fall.

 

Robert Mugabe falls

 

After speaking to “adoring supporters” at Harare International Airport, Mugabe fell down some steps from a podium this week. The 90-year old was then whisked away to a limousine and photographers were instructed to delete pictures of the incident.

 

Mugabe’s fall is symbolic as it highlights the frailty of a tyrant who spent over £10 million on his birthday party, his daughter’s wedding and on two bronze statues of himself in 2014. Famed for his mismanagement of a once prosperous economy, “Uncle Bob” is a man who has massacred tens of thousands of innocent people and dragged Zimbabwe into the gutter. Here is someone who is, in fact, nothing other than a disgrace and a monster.

 

When Mugabe came to power, he promised social cohesion and progress for those who had been unfairly marginalised in the past. He has instead delivered starvation, corruption and devastation. It is time for Robert Mugabe to fall and thus the image of him falling just had to be our Picture of the Week.

    • Taking a fall for an old man like that could be dangerous.......Next time he might break his neck..........God willing !

    • Old Bob has obviously never tried a Caesar Salad, I highly recommend this tasty delicacy, nobody in Zimbabwe has ever had the guts or foresight to stab him in the back, not even the witches, they are probably all hooked on Waldorff Salads.

    • Although probably the worst leader, [if you can call him that], in the world, give or take a few; after his next fall, from which he might not recover, the real fear is with his Gestapo styled henchmen? Beware as they will be a lot worse in administering a country where there is virtually nothing remaining.

    • Why cannot African countries produce incorruptible and competent leaders?
      Answer? It's all the fault of the British....or so they would want you to believe.
      The shocking thing is that companies like MB have no compunction about selling these crooks
      fleets of cars. Your view please Chaim, as an old Africa hand
