Nothing wrong with Mugabe travelling but...

EDITOR — It seems people are now very worried about President Robert Mugabe’s extensive travels around the globe as if he does it out of sheer pleasure of flying.

I feel it is unfair to blame him for “just doing his job” because he still has election promises to deliver as well as regional obligations to fulfil as the head of the African Union and Sadc.

Remember, the president promised us two million jobs but up to now nothing has materialised so far.

I think the president knows he has little time to deliver on his election promises inasmuch as his ZimAsset has largely remained a “pipeline dream” since it was unveiled two years ago.

Even though it is clear that the economy is on a free-fall as it cruises on auto-pilot owing to the president’s absence most of the time, we must bear with him, on the condition that his globe trotting brings food on the table for ordinary Zimbabweans.

Please, let him discharge his duties as a head of State, and those duties come with extensive travelling in an attempt to clinch deals in line with ZimAsset.

Personally, I feel sorry for the president as he seems so overwhelmed with responsibilities.

The easiest way out for Mugabe was to simply dissolve his corruption-tainted Cabinet and resign but since he’s decided to soldier on, let him try whatever he can, you never know something good might come out of it after all.

His resignation though would have allowed the nation to move past this era and start over again in a way that benefits all citizens and revamp the country’s industries.

The president is now advanced in years, he should rest. It does not do him any good to continue resisting change which he knows too well to be inevitable.

I sincerely hope that whatever business he travels to attend is for the benefit of starving Zimbabweans back home.

    Hameno editor, you sound like you have faith in Mugabe. What can he do now which he could not do in the lost 35 years?

    Is he the only busy president?If we use that kind of argument, i wonder if Obama would find time to visit his country?

    how can you say that the economy is 'cruising on auto-pilot' when it has no pilot and is in freefall!

    So there is something wrong with you for thinking that there nothing wrong with those unnecessery trips

    Zvakaoma hazvo. Sarcastic ...said with precision. Mabasa e zanu ndiwo akavasunga. Their past doesn't allow for resignation. The sad thing is they think they will live forever. We die kutofusirwa chaiko. It's best to do what is right and die with a good legacy that will live forever. Do good and never try to undo it
